The performing arts

Went to a dance show with my wife tonight. Enjoyed it quite a bit. Arrived at 2 observations on why we like to see live performance:

1. It provides an excuse to stare at other people for as long as we want, for real and in person, not like on TV when you're staring at a bunch of pixels rather than a real person.

2. We get the chance to see things go wrong and happen out of sync, or perhaps fall apart altogether, which generally isn't going to happen on TV or in a movie (although you never know).
