And now for something completely different…

So in Seattle a couple of days ago a man walks into a cafe and starts shooting people.  Sadly, we’ve seen that before.  The police start a manhunt, driving around neighborhoods in armored vehicles wielding shotguns and automatic weapons.   Yep, seen that before.  The man shoots himself after being discovered by police.  We’ve seen that before too.    The “community” is grief-stricken and looks for ways to deal with their sorrow, trying to find meaning in it all.  When don’t we see that when something terrible happens?

What I hadn’t ever seen before is people holding a parade as part of a memorial service for the victims of the shooting, and in that parade some people dressing up as strange characters as though from some Alice in Wonderland type world…

Turns out they were costumed members from a theatrical production called “Lullaby Moon“, a ” large-scale, site-specific public performance celebrating the new moon”…

Don’t really have much to say about it, other than “THIS IS WEIRD”.   And not much strikes me as being all that weird anymore….  The country is still scratching it’s head over a guy in Miami who a week ago was eating a homeless man’s face in zombie-like fashion, yet I still find this even weirder.  Go figure.  I guess it goes to show that I actually find any sort of pantomime performance even creepier than zombies…. 

Here is more footage of an actual “performace”. Like I said. Weird…..
