Oooo, interesting! Ta Cath!

 

Incidently, a girl said she saw someone on a giraffe uni (ie: a very tall one, the seat can be 5 - 10ft above the ground) performing in Northumberland Street.... does this happen often??

 

That person could well usurp the Chirpy Double Bass guys as my favourites.... :lol:

Egg-fucking-zactly. A bunch of people with no jobs and no discernible talent, doing things like juggling in the street. A 10 year old can juggle and there are actually people that will form a crowd and watch a grown man do it! Not to mention mimes - you're not stuck in a box, you're just a twat.

Ive noticed we seem to have street performers in torquay on a regular basis lately, cant say im keen on them. We have this person stood on a block, swathed all in white, white face and hands....a statue :lol: Scares the life out of people when he suddenly moves!! :lol:

Completely agree with mimes and statues - scare the feck outta me. One of them I saw around the place I *knew* was the sister of one of my mates..... but she still scared me.

 

I never really thought twice about street performers before I befriended them. Unfortunately, the one that I originally befriended turned out to be the biggest fuckin' twat in the universe..... but luckily, all of the others were lovely. And they work ridiculously hard for their money... and if they're actually any good, then they've been learning their skills since *forever*. And it's just luck as to whether they end up making loads, or scrape together a tenner.

 

Anyways, you're entitled to your own opinions on this..... you think they're tossers. Fair enough. Some of them are.

 

But, a mon avis, not all of them. :lol:

 

 

 

 

Oh, and unfortunately I'm busy with work today (urgh, statistics...) so could ne pas go to see it. Boo.

The worst street entertainer I've ever seen was on Michigan Ave in Chicago. A young'ish lad in dreadful 80's clothes with a ghetto blaster 'dancing' in the loosest sense of the word. It was excruciating. :lol:
