Yea, I can't stand to watch the Bills lose. So I was flipping the channels and came across a documentary called Carney.

I was totally surprised that it had such strong local ties. Yea, it's produced by TVO TV Ontario [Canadian Public Television], but a good majority of the people featured in the film were from Western New York. The best part was the 25 minutes where the featured Canal Fest and a carnival worker from North Tonawanda. All I can say is the former bar 7 Wonders actually has quite a bit of time in the doc.

Seeing a "Cut Down Clown" as a human being is kind of different. Even though I don't have an issue with clowns, the guys that run serious smack behind the bars of their dunk tank really do freak me the F out.

Check it out if you ever get a chance to see it. Personally I loved the Tom Waits/Butthole Surfers type of soundtrack as well. All I can say is it's pretty cool stuff.
