Just got back from San Jose  
Devil's bargain with Jason - we each agreed to join the other at their preferred technique's seminar.  This weekend was my end of the deal, at an Activator seminar.  Seems to be a decent technique (although not one I'm likely to use), but MAN do they need to learn how to pace their seminars.  It was SLOOOOOOOOOOW.

Anyway, if you were trying to reach us over the weekend, now you know why you failed.  =/

Odd transition.
In Vegas? Nope. Saw Spamalot in New York when most of the original cast was in it. Here are some points I can tell you:
1. The guy playing King Arthur in this production is amazing. We saw him locally (in Ventura) in Man of La Mancha, and even as a minor part he stole the show.
2. The show was really fun in NYC. I truly think that anybody who loves the movie it's lovingly ripping off (their words) will enjoy this.
5. The show has been shortened a little for the Vegas production. 15 minutes or so less material, and no intermission. No clue what changes were actually made - although I suspect that information can be found online. I wouldn't look if I were you.

As far as Vegas shows go, I haven't seen any of the Broadway productions that have been put on there, but I felt since they were at the Luxor that if one were to get in their car, drive to Vegas, go directly to the theatre, watch Blue Man Group, get back in their car and drive directly home it'd be worth the trip. I suspect the move across the Strip hasn't changed the show enough to make that less true. Cirque du Soleil is always amazing. Spamalot was fun in NYC. And Phantom could actually be improved by the Vegasizing done to get it into that town. I've been wanting to go back, but can't afford it. (Last time I went was a couple of Summers ago, a few months before Avenue Q opened.) If they haven't been, I'd say they should go.
