Watching the pro's clean up after a NYC parade is a rarely watched under appreciated spectacle. After filming NYC's 2007 Halloween Parade in its entirety from the starting point, I stayed for an hour to capture "the show after the show". Here are the highlights from that footage spiced up with a few really strange interviews. Watch, enjoy, rate and leave comments. If you encounter these guys in action, congratulate them on the job they do.

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2008: STICK BEATS MASTER !
Performances that DON'T go as planned are the most entertaining. This excerpt from martial arts performances at NYC's Chinese New Year's 2008 celebration proves "show biz glitz" is no match for "performance". I suspect "The Master's" mistake was in using stage-boys instead of saw-horses. No insult intended. Watching "The Master" lose to the stick was a lot of fun! See "Martial Arts for Chinese New Year" for impressive performances that did go "as planned" :-)
MARTIAL ARTS FOR CHINESE NEW YEAR
Martial Arts were highlights of the Cultural Festival celebrating Chinese New Year in NYC on February 10, 2008. Some performances were impressive. Others deserved humorous commentary. Here is another glimpse of the wonderful diversity of life found in NYC.
