E-253: Tears For Fears of Cirque

Random Vegas
There is a small thematic sub-text of cirque’s Beatles LOVE being the band’s last concert? (Vegas Chatter)

Twitpic of the week

Palpable, in a word, is how I would describe @jenhaught's picture and this week's "Twitpic of the week".  The view of the strip, south of Paris, at night, taken from the Eiffel Tower experience is so intense it's almost tangible, also known as the actual definition of the word Palpable.  One of the most interesting effects views like this and ones available at the Mandarin Oriental or the High Roller is, while they are stunningly beautiful, they also create an intense desire to abandon said view and become a part of it.  It reminds one of the philosophy that there are two kinds of people in the world, Astronomers and Astronauts.  Astronomers observe and enjoy space from a distance, in the safety of familiar surroundings; while an Astronaut ventures into the vast unknown to experience it.  I get the impression the majority of people who love Las Vegas are the latter, even if only in Las Vegas.
