Avant-Garde Olympic Closing Ceremonies

I'm watching the closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics and I must say, this is the most avant-garde production I have ever seen outside Fred Newman's Castillo Theater.

The opening and closing ceremonies were truly a showcase of creativity, innovation, performance, fearlessness, and collectivity. But also of great great beauty. A most beautiful performance.

Hats off to the Chinese people.

They should be very very proud. And speaking for at least some of the American people, and possibly some portion of the world's people, WE are very very proud of the Chinese people and their committment to twisting our perceptions of space and time. We have all grown another head!
