This picture was taken when
I was playing at a weekend-long festival
in Austria around 1998 or so.
We were playing on a Saturday night,
but during the afternoon I
wandered over to the festival site to see
if anything interesting was
going on. Somehow or other, I wound up
being the volunteer in a knife-throwing
act. Not something I planned
on, I must say, but something
I'd now recommend that everyone do
once -- not necessarily twice!
-- in his or her lifetime. Luckily for me,
the knife-throwing guy in the
fringed shirt was really good.
