Weekend LOWDOWN

SATURDAY and SUNDAY

Glass Pumpkin Festival Santana Row

Experience the magic of glass! Stroll through thousands of hand-blown glass pumpkins crafted by BAGI (Bay Area Glass Institute) artists and renowned glass artisans from around the country. The pumpkins are unique gifts for friends and family and are a perfect addition to fall decoration. Some even make beautiful year-round display pieces: the pumpkins will be available in an assortment of colors, sizes and a range of prices. This is a once-a-year event, so come early and find the perfect glass pumpkin!

Zoppe Family Circus Red Morton Park Redwood City
The Zoppè Family Circus welcomes guests into the intimate 500 seat tent for a one-ring circus that honors the best history of the Old-World Italian tradition. Starring Nino the clown, the circus is propelled by a central story (as opposed to individual acts) that feature acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, cainine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation. Giovanni Zoppè, the sixth-generation circus performer who plays Nino, says the show aims higher than what passes for circuses these days. "We try to touch every emotion during the show," he says. "They'll laugh, they'll cry, and they'll feel for the characters. It's more of an event than a show."





Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde City Lights Theater Company
Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde--the story of a scientist whose experiments lead to the discovery of an evil alter ego--is a classic of Victorian goth-lit. There have been many adaptations of the novella on stage and screen over the years, but City Lights is offering a fairly new adaptation by Jeremy Hacker, which features four actors--including a woman--playing that dastardly Mr. Hyde. Mark Anderson Phillips, who starred as a Hyde in the original production, directs. The play runs through Oct. 18.


The Pirates of Penzance Montgomery Theater
Lyric Theatre opens its 2015-2016 season with this comedic classic.
Frederic, apprenticed by mistake to a pirate band, comes of age and decides it is his duty to devote the rest of his life to exterminating his former friends. However, this is no ordinary pirate band.  They spare orphans, so of course everyone they capture pleads “orphan,” including Major General Stanley on behalf of his daughters.
When the pirates learn the truth, they swear revenge.  Will they be successful?



California's Great America Halloween Haunt
In addition to the regular roller coasters and rides of Great America, Haunt consists of 8 horror-filled mazes, the two new ones this year being the Roadkill Roadhouse and the Chamber of Horrors Wax Museum, plus 3 spooky live shows and 3 scare zones littered between the attractions.


Dead Time Dreams near the Eastridge Mall at the intersection of Tully and the Capitol Expressway
No longer do you stand waiting in line, now you have a whole Midway of Terror to entertain you even before entering the two attractions. This year, the experience will be a whole detailed pre-show that gets the mood or was it blood flowing, even before you go facing the dark passageways of horrors. See the Freaks and Creatures that have never been seen before, special nightly shows that are different happenings each night, The Midway of Terror is a dark and intense experience which is better than most haunted attractions you will have ever experienced before!

Escape!

New Thing: Pay 30 dolars each. Get locked in a room. Try to escape. Sounds kind of crazy, but I can see the appeal to gamers or tech kids to try to figure it out. Not many have! 
----
Some of my friends had done research. “This is supposed to be one of the hardest escape games.” Keri informed us, having looked it up online. “Even in gamer circles, the San Francisco one is supposed to be tough.” more here

Clear Lake is #3 on Best Bass Lakes of 2013

"If this place isn’t a dream lake for a bass fisherman, that fisherman needs to check his pulse." Bassmaster Magazine says Clear Lake is #3 on Best Bass Lakes of 2013. I've never had a 100 fish day but I did have a 70+ day catching (and releasing) bass at Clear Lake. It's a great lake for sure!
Go with guide Bob Myskey at www.fishclearlake.com for a fun day. He's awesome. Here's a couple of Clear Lake bass I caught (then released) on a trip with him a few years ago. Read more here when they talk about 25 or 30 pounds a day to win a tournament that is for just 5 fish!

1st Motorcycle

What was my first motorcycle? 1st time ever was a Honda Trail 90 one day for about 10 minutes. Later I really learned on a Montgomery Wards "Riverside" 125 that was a Benelli sold by Wards. It looked this one in the photo. Kickstart on the left and and heel and toe shifting on the right!

It had a twin 2 stroke with 2 little pistons that fired at the same time. It was called a "Twingle." I don't know why someone would do that. I lost the key that went down into the headlight so I used a nail instead. It worked fine except when you hit a bump it would pop up and the engine died, but you just pushed it back in to keep going.

I, being a kid, rode the crap out of it at Borax Lake in Lake County.

They looked kind of cool.

Thank You Justin Timberlake Fans!

Saw this headline about the new Justin Timberlake album

"The 20/20 Experience, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 968,000 copies sold"



 

"SOLD" It's great that so many have paid for this music. It helps recording engineers, songwriters, musicians, studio workers, album art photographers and graphic designers, everyone involved in the video production, everyone involved in touring (that's a lot!), promotion people, and on and on.

These people can continue to do what they do because of the success of artists like Justin Timberlake. They move on to another project and more music working with bands and artists we may or may not have heard of.

Paying for music helps a lot of people continue to make music for us. JT fans are helping a lot!

That's how it goes.

Billboard says: (more here)

Justin Timberlake's third solo album, The 20/20 Experience, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 968,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sum is the largest for any album this year and the best of the former 'N Sync member's solo career.

Another way to frame Timberlake's success? He's just the sixth artist in the Billboard 200's 57-year history to notch multiple No. 1 albums both with a group and as a soloist. And, half of those six are Beatles, meaning Timberlake is in some truly Fab company.
