Cirque du Soleil’s music concert and arena show “Delirum” is now running in Movie Theatres. You cannot see the show live anymore, because it is finished touring.
However, you can see it on the Big screen at the moment and hopefully soon on DVD.
I finally got around creating a longer sneak preview video, which I had on my to-do list for some time already. The news that the show stopped touring and is now shown in movie theaters made me realize that it won’t be for long anymore and a DVD will be available and no need for me to spend time on editing together a nice video hehe.
So here it is now, a 28 minutes long sneak preview of some segments of the show. I think it is a record… yes, it is. The “O” and “Mystere” videos were “only” 21 and 22 minutes long.
As a special bonus, both, the handbalancing (Andrey Koltsov) and hoola hoops (Irina Akimova) acts are covered completly (yeah! hehe). Editing video on a PC is still a bitch and it took me longer than I wanted to. Not the editing, but the rendering of the final video :(. God, I hate this “codec”, “DirectShow Filters”, “Video for Windows” crap and all the problems that come with it.

A side note about my blog here at RoySAC.com/blog.
Have a look to the right side and you will notice a new text box below the text box for the email subscription to my posts via Feedburner.
It’s a new search feature for my blog. It only searches my blog and not the rest of the website.
I use Google’s Custom Search Engine (CSE) for it and tweaked it to make the results even more relevant. I excluded the “category” pages and the homepage for example. It should actually only search and return blog post pages, if I did everything right and as I wanted it to be. The Category pages and homepage tend to rank high in Google, but they are not that much helpful, especially if you are looking for something specific.
So check it out and let me know how it works for you. I am thinking about creating a second CSE for the rest of the RoySAC.com site, which is also getting bigger and harder to navigate every day.
Enjoy and Cheers!
