Sitting down for nine hours can accomplish a variety of things. You can hop on a plane and be in Paris, for example. Or drive to NYC. Or write an entire term paper (as I learned in my undergraduate career).
Even better…well, maybe not better than Paris or NYC…but definitely better than the term paper…you could check out LipSynch; a 9-hour extravaganza of theatre, music, and various other multimedia.
Don’t get me wrong, the performance is breath-taking in its momentousness and it’s certainly a feat to finish watching, not unlike reading War and Peace, but the enjoyability factor peter out around hour 4. If you’re a holier-than-thou theatre type, check it out. If you’re like me, though, and you’re quite happy to be part of the great unwashed, this is a major red-light.
