I'm sure we've all seen a military parachutist drop in to a stadium with the game ball. We know what it looks like from the stadium looking up. Here's what it looks like for the parachutist coming down.
That's too cool! Reminds me of the way Jim Stafford used to perform back in the Spiders and Snakes/Swamp Witch era. One-man-band is an underrated art form (especially when it's done this well.)
I recall trolling B-way in Nashville many years ago. Stepping into dives where performers sang for tips, I realized there are a lot more very talented performers out there than there are Stars. Up on the hill from B-way was Pipers Alley, there you could see folks who had "made it". The music wasn't any better and the beer cost 5 times as much.
