Normally, I'm not one for LJ type posts...

…but this was so incredible, that if I didn’t, I’d explode.

Yeah, I just got back from seeing the Chinese State Circus in a theater, and it was…well, it was the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen, and likely ever WILL see. I mean, don’t get me wrong, machinary is cool and all, but this was just…something else.

I really wish I could explain it for you here, the sheer…wonder of it. I am not using hyperbole here when I say I was childlike with wonder, because that is EXACTLY what I was like (there were children sitting near me <_<). All I can say is it involved a lot of strength, a lot of flexibility and a lot of juggling stlye stuff (juggling pots whee :3).

But trust me, this doesn’t do it anywhere NEAR to justice.

If you ever get the opportunity, and don’t see it, I will be forced to kill you honourably. Because it’s just…yeah.
