You Don't Say


Ironically, while on my way to a juggling festival in Brooklyn, I caught this massive assemblage of mimes in a fenced playground out of the corner of my eye. I was inclined to just keep driving - after all, this kind of unpredictable insanity is not uncommon in the city. But then it occurred to me that hundreds of mimes gathered at 11:15 on a Sunday morning was a VERY uncommon site and that I should share it. So, I made a split second decision to circle the block, park illegally in a bus stop and snap a few quick photos through the openings in the fence, hoping I would get something usable (more photos here). I had no time to make inquiries so I have no idea what this mysterious silent event was about - audition, filming ?

How fun!!!
It is unusual - I wonder what you call a group of mimes? lol -
A mimic of mimes? A muster of mimes? A mass of mimes?

You were on your way to a "juggling
festival" and you found it ODD to come across a gathering of mimes - HA! I'm still laughing!
Glad to hear NY is still quirky even after so much gentification.

Yes, we are all going about our business over here as if our quirky individual concerns are to be taken for granted but it's true they are more odd than not when looking at it all from the outside. The mimes and us both. I suspect it could have been an open call for something to do with that movie we posted about earlier....too bad there was no opportunity to find out, the car was sitting with the motor running at a bus stop at one of the worst possible spots...
