_Cooking Hot_ Cultural Displays  
One . . . The Blackhorse Honor Guard
Earth . . . Bolshoi Ballet? An Opera?
Purple . . . Shootout at the OK Corral
Arbolia . . . The Liitle Gods doing sand drawing spell fireworks
CometFall/KoW . . . live music and ballroom dancing, demo then lessons
Comet Fall/Cove Islands . . . Sailing lessons on a full scale mockup of a ship's deck

Now who's going to do what to everyone else's shows and food?

Does Earth still have the Lipizzaner’s? Or if not war monger earth one the others such as where the demon of what’s its name creek lives?

It's been a long time for Earth. Maybe their cultural display is a full sensie interactive Star Wars LXII "movie"

I wonder what Arrival might wish to show. I can't recall anything too distinctive about it from "The Dark Lady," just a fairly-generic medieval-ish society.

Random thought: River and Simon attending, running into Ra'd, and commiserating over the "trapped in a dimensional bubble for a thousand years" experience.

I have plans for Arrival . . .

Sorry to say it...
..., but the warmonger earth is not known for it's cultural wealth.
They tried to impress with their technical superiority.

Maybe some lasershow, or aerobatic display.
(would love to see Wavelengh messing with the pilots, but most like not going to happen)

Or as someone suggested, a life enactment of the battle of Hoth from episode 4.

Re: Sorry to say it...
Oh surely they wouldn't do a Soviet style parade of weapons? Or a display of tanks and planes?
ekuah on January 5th, 2018 08:16 pm (UTC)
Re: Sorry to say it...
Nope, I thought more something like Reno Air Races, or monster truck arena.
Or like those marching band displays complete with a squadron of fighter jets overheads painting the sky with white blue and red exhaust trails.

Re: Sorry to say it...
Don't forget that the Native Affairs types are institutionally arrogant and stupid. Think pompous when you are deciding on Earth's display.

Re: Sorry to say it...
You are right.
They will try to impress with their technological superiority.
Not like the soviet style military parades, more like those GM Futurliner "Parade of Progress" stuff from the '40s.
Generously slathered with lots of national pride.

To show those "primitive natives" and those "degenerated mutants" who the boss is.

Thinking about it... how about a full 3d “live” Shakespearean play? With the “actors” and everything being computer-operated, and you’re welcome to walk through the action? Say A Midsummer’s Night Dream, complete with magic effects and all? Something like that? Although perhaps it has been disneyized?

Let’s see. The black horse honor guard are doing an equestrian show? Do I remember that Comet Fall has some really hot horses?

Ballet? A little slug of that wine for the dancers might have some interesting effects?

Shootout... they’re using blanks? Need I say more?

Little gods... I don’t suppose anyone wants to break the chain?

Live music and ballroom dancing? Would that be country music? Heck, a little rock and roll rhythm might help?

Sailing lessons? The weather started getting rough, the tiny ship was tossed, if not for the courage of the ... shipwrecked on another planet?

Just some thoughts...
matapampamuphoff on January 5th, 2018 04:29 pm (UTC)
The Little Gods are all free, and having fun doing magic on their own. Pity the Cove Islanders made fun of them . . . and the fireworks started going sideways into their "ship" and then the small pirates attacked.

Opera - ,Hell hound has to sing along with every dog on Embassy


black horse guards - Pyrite meets the love of his life, or at least this season.

Sabotage - salmonella in the ministry's solid. Or laxative generously spread about.

Ministry chefs try to sabotage Ebsa. Who is going to help Ebsa? the kids he's collecting or those bored Dystopia detainees.

Perhaps his mother could show up with her staff, having closed down for the day to show support for her son in his first ever major cooking contest?
cnmckenney on January 5th, 2018 05:43 pm (UTC)
If Earth-original wants to get into the spirit rather than be A*H*les they could show SE Asian temple dancers or Chinese acrobats.
It would also be interesting to see what kind of weaving the One's micro-manufacturers can produce.
Maybe what kind of effect Lord Hell would have on live animal acts. Would find out real quick how the participants are trained.
As a contrast to he Black Horse Guards bring in some Gauchos from the Pampas.

Lord Hell introduces ALL SORTS of opportunities for humorous mayhem...

Warmonger Earth: Computer games and virtual reality displays

One World: in addition to the food, perhaps bring one of the newly hatched dinosaur babies for display. Most "faire" events have some sort of animal husbandry sections. Perhaps it could be Paer's addition.

I think the dinosaurs are in a dimensional bubble at the moment, not yet gifted to Paer by Ebsa. But maybe they could have a dino hunt and bring back some live dinos, or some dead dinos for cooking.

matapampamuphoff on January 6th, 2018 02:07 am (UTC)
I'm afraid Paer hasn't got the baby Triceratops yet.

I wonder how big the pleisiosaur is, that they captured as interns? But two weeks is probably too short a period to buid a proper habitat and arraign transport.

The campus of whatever University that was may be a major tourist destination, these days. I'm sure there will be vids and . . . government officials having vapors over the idea of letting Earthers just come and tour their world!

What about handcrafts? And rides for kiddies. Jumping castle (from Eldon's demon time)
Embassy itself should have a booth. Who calls Embassy home? Yay rides in waggons drawn by pinto horses. Football match between two Earth's or One. What would British Empire bring - dog show with forties and bull dogs? And member of Royal family? They might do Shakespeare.
(Anonymous) on January 7th, 2018 01:38 am (UTC)
Considering that they are in the third generation of contact now, perhaps a retired spies booth. Earth, Comet Fall and the One World all have spies that were spying on each other, but have now retired. Of course there could be some bad blood between some of them, a small matter of murdered friends.

Someone needs to see schedule rock concert at same time as ballroom dancing. Complete with famous bratty rock stars.
(Anonymous) on January 6th, 2018 03:37 am (UTC)
ooh. Iss Daka would love come - just for a chance to meet Xen.

_Cooking Hot_ Cultural Displays
British Empire : Grenadier Guards marching display team and Horse Guards mounted band
How about a diplo rankle between 2 earth band worlds wanting to do the same thing - both wanting to do Elvis expo or Tchaikosvki's 1812 overture or Mozarts 5th or ..... Merican Football display!!
