Don't jump to conclusions - I'm going to tell the story.
Walking along the Las Vegas strip (or on Fremont Street), occasionally you see people dressed up as characters hoping that you'll stop and take a picture with them in exchange for a gratuity. In the time I've been here this week, I've seen Gene Simmons, Johnny Depp, Wolverine, many different Transformers, Elvis (of course), and Dora the Explorer. The thing with Dora was that literally right next to her was one of the lowlifes who snap the little cards (I'm told they do that because they aren't allowed to verbally communicate with the public) that have ads for porno stuff, strip clubs and hookers; the whole vibe was super creepy.
Here are some pics from today:
Remember the cool artist, David Garibaldi, from America's Got Talent? He opened the Bb Corporate keynote performing - his picture is is of Albert Einstein holding up an iPad mini with the Bb logo on it...it was cool to see up close.
The theme at the Venetian/Palazzo suites is Carnevale, so there've been a number of festivities in the various common areas this week. Here are some pics of some of it:
I got two new T-shirts from the conference today, one I earned by sitting though as 12-15 minute interview regarding a product. Funny thing is, all I wanted to do was sit a few minutes and it paid off.
Saddest part of this post is I didn't think to snap a photo of the Dora thing. I think I was so taken aback that the oddity of it all just won over. In the long run, I'm not sure a picture was necessary but I suspect that after you reading this post to this point and seeing that there are pictures of stuff that you might at least question where the Dora is?
