12 Rules for Life Tour (2019)
I was expecting a self-help book tour thing: take personal responsibility and stuff like that. But it was actually him talking about what inspired him to write his books, which went all over the map. He's an academic, and started a bit scattered, but as it went on, he started bringing things together and having a coalesced message and it was quite an interesting and fun talk.
Bette Middler: The Showgirl must go on (2008)
Bette Middler puts on a show. More Melissa's tastes than mine, but still worth the experience -- almost a retro vaudeville thing with some talking to the audience, some joke telling, a bit of singing and dancing thing. It was a retro experience, but she does it well as sort of the glamorous but crass diva.
Double Indemnity (2012)
Small theater kind of 1950's gumshoe play. Good for novelty. Not something I'd want to see every night, but for an excuse to go it, it was captivating enough to keep me entertained and awake.
Elton John: Red Piano (2008)
Elton was weird... but entertaining. Love the music. The visuals were a bit odd. The video in the background was often dark theme'd, a bit sadder than the music. (In the beginning/middle part of the show). By the end, he was a lot more up-beat. But he had props like: inflatable boobs and phallic fruit. Not sure of the goal there. We still enjoyed the show and hearing him live (though he doesn't push his voice quite as much as in his youth), it was still fun to see such a wonderful icon in person.
Embrace the shake
Earlier this year, I saw Phil Hansen speak in person (at Adobe MAX). His speech hit me profoundly. It’s a fantastic speech/story about how limitations can expand us. If you have 10 minutes to watch this, or watch this again, I feel it will be time well spent.
Jo Koy (2012)
Jo Koy: a funny guy (which is important for a comedian) -- so it was a good show. worth the money. Not for kids.
Love (Beatles, Cirque, Las Vegas) (2012)
Loved love. While it didn't have the most impressive anything I've seen in a Vegas show, it had really good everything: Great music, pacing, lots of things to keep you interested, and great music. In the end, it was my favorite Vegas show.
Ringling Bros Circus (2010)
Ringling Bros & Barnum & Bailey Circus came to San Jose (Aug), so why not go? Elephant train, Cool Clowns, Trapeze acts, Noise, Lights, Cotton Candy. It might not be the "greatest show", but it's still pretty good. It's a little dated in the era of Cirque shows, but it's "Classic".
Styx (2014)
A little off track ramble about how music is a fun appeal to emotion, a journey to our past, but lyrics aren't poetry and the format is too short to convey much depth of thought. So shut up and enjoy it, and stop trying to make it into something it isn't.
