So I was driving back from rehearsal down Hilltop in my subdivision, and I saw this car wrapped around a tree. Literally. Yikes.
Hmmm, I forget if there is usually a car parked there, perhaps nobody was in the car when it happened, and it was parked on the side of the road when a car at the T-intersection slammed into it, cause that would have been bad if people were in it. I couldn't even find the driver's seat in that mess.

15:00 I'm sitting on the Branson Scenic Railroad right now, it's interesting, there are some interesting historical landmarks and facts about the rail line that are really cool. The two tunnels are amazing, it's cool how tunnels and bridges that seem to be built with such little technology still hold up today! (Such as wood... thinking about rickety wood holding up the trains is kinda scary) And of course, there is scenery, without the interference of any roads or sign of civilization anywhere, so that's really nice.
23:03: Just got back from the Shoji Tabuchi show, wow. I've been there before, in the Spring of 1995, and stuff has changed. They have all sorts of tricks with the laser system now, wow. Amazing. And they have beefed up the acrobatics, tons of illusion-type show tricks, very elaborate. Shoji's crew is amazing, the dancers do everything, acrobatics, Asian drums, Hawaiian dances, trips with Cowboy lassos, you name it. I couldn't believe the same crew did everything. Talk about amazing training! And that's the thing... Shoji played music from so many different themes, wow. But I do kinda miss some of the stuff he used to play, like a little classical, and he also had that Fiddler on the Roof set, that's gone now. Some of the sets he played from this time were even a tad on the tacky side. Owell, the theatre effects, like I said, were just fantastic. Laser, smoke, lights, fireworks, all the stage work. But I was still very impressed, Shoji is awesome. It makes me want to go back and see it again, really. And I still can't get over how ridiculously furnished those bathrooms are.

I spent a good part of the afternoon playing whatever duets we could find with Andrea. We had to go borrow some from Natalie's violin teacher and I stopped by M-R Music to buy Mazas and Gemniani, so that should keep us entertained for a while.

Woah, GM is getting the groove on with Subaru's new AWD technology that they've acquired. They teamed up with Toyota to make the replacement for the Corolla/Prism, and are coming up with the Pontiac Vibe/Toyota Matrix. The Matrix will be pretty tight, it's supposed to use the Subaru AWD system, and the sport model will have the Celica GT-S's 180 bhp VVTi engine and 6-speed. WOW. Poor man's Audi, much? And it's a wagon, essentially, but the rear seats fold to the floor. That's European mini-MPV style! And this is built in Canada, so I expect high quality, not like certain Mexican-built autos.
They're also stealing the Subaru ST-X concept with the Chevy Borrego. It's essentially the same thing, with the Legacy platform, 2.5L turbocharged flat-4, and the mid-gate and all. Styling looks pretty nice.
