We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
These street performers are good. But it's too bad that they have to perform on the street. America had Vaudeville Houses for a long time. Travelling performers would work a town for a couple of weeks, and then move on to the next town. A lot of famous Hollywood actors got started this way: W.C. Fields was a very talented performer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytgPGr6JhLo
It would be easy to bring vaudeville back. Just set up a simple theatre which seats about two hundred people; and in the back put little hotel rooms for the talent. A ticket usually costs a few dollars for a two-hour show, and it's fun.
I know this is a bit off the point of this post but I'd like you to listen to another cover of "I Will Survive". Angelina Jordan is a 14 year old young lady from Norway. She won "Norway's Got Talent" at the age of 7. This is a quite competent cover of the song but the main reason for posting this is that it gives access to 130 other songs she has done. Check them out. She is a superstar in the making. You get to say you knew her back in the day.
Can I just say what a relief to discover an individual who truly understands what they're discussing on the internet. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people must check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular since you certainly have the gift.
