On the way home DoN wandered into the new Comcast building and just happened to be there as an elegant party was going on – a herd of men in suits with gray ponytails and a flock of ladies in Prada and Manolo’s munching on canapes and sipping wine – for the premier of the world’s largest high definition LCD TV screen in the sprawling lobby. The wall looks like the paneling in the rest of the room when the show’s not on but magically transforms into hyper-realistic video causing DoN to wonder if he was witnessing real actors scrambling up the wall, dancing to The Mashed Potato or swinging from cables ala Cirque du Soliel. The color, vibrancy, choreography and special effects are truly a gift to the city. The sculptures of people traversing beams high up in the soaring atrium are amazing as well with stereotypical workers metaphorically balancing life and commerce above the lobby floor.
