today Douglys Posting about Psychic surgery made me think of a cool sideshow Idea. First I thought up Self preformed Psychic surgery, then Self preformed Psychic surgery while lying on a bed of Nails. Then Preforming Psychic surgery on someone else lying on the bed of nails (random out of the crowd) then devouring their intestines.

I recently picked up a copy of the graphic novel version of Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes," and then a topic about Sideshow Freaks comes up... :?

Nice camp idea. Themed social gatherings, perhaps? Burlesque shows are always a fave. And who's up for a Vibraphone-Accordian Dance Party?

I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your father, but hope you're doing well all things considered and am glad you made it through another default holiday season. Bring on the carnie grind!

I think I asked uncle google to show me results for carnival comic book covers and scrolled along to see the fun results. Safesearch off, of course. I wonder if aunt bing would have much different or more delightful results. Who's got the sauciest search algorhythms? That would be an interesting experiment...
