Cool Renaissance images

Check out these renaissance images:

Adam “Crack” Winrich doing his fire whip at the Arizona Renaissance Fair

This is the second time I saw Adam perform – and both times the shows were great. Adam holds several world records for various whip things (check out his website for a complete list). These photos are from performances he put on at the Arizona Renaissance Fair in February 2011.

Adam does a lot of cool things with his whips, such as splitting soda cans in two, cutting flowers held by a lovely maiden, and breaking pretzels in his lips with a massive whip – and then there is the popular fire show. If you have a chance, check out his shows. In the meantime, here is a little excerpt from his website: "Adam performs sophisticated, high-energy routines, featuring Adam’s dry humor in spoken material, anecdotes, historical or educational stories. And yes, there is room for audience interaction in his shows, always more than just a series of amazing tricks. Routines include single-handed whip cracking, double-handed multi-crack demos, stunts and tricks including balloon popping, candle snuffing, paper cutting, flower snipping, whip dancing, wraps, fire whips, and much, much more."

(link to Lesson 4: www.youtube.com Lesson 3 – Revisiting Civics 101 describes how the media projects a false picture in terms of who controls the US. This lesson illustrates the real power structure, which is modeled after the corporate governance system. It typically uses Ivy Leaguers to fill its ranks and it exercises ownership rights over the country to some degree.
