Picador - A little less than a happy high

Picador
The Master of Puppets shared his plan to post a sign in his office that reads: "If you attempt to speak to me with a puppet, I will kill you."

This seems like an inauspicious starting point to his career, but he's the one with the "executive director" title. I did manage to surprise him while we talked simply because I've seen a fair number of the troupes that perform at the theater and was able to speak at length about the Tanglewood Marionettes and the now-defunct New England Marionette Opera.

At least I'll probably be able to get comps off of him...


Unrelated, but in a similar vein, I very much want to help agoodshinkickin with her "The Continuing Adventures of (sockpuppet) Klae" idea.

Anything I can do you encourage you to further your art...

He just has no clue about puppetry as art-form, does he? I mean, really, that's just about the most condescending thing he could come up with to post on his wall.

I think he assumes that all puppeteers will be some weird cross between Magnus and Mr. Garrison from South Park.

Re:

Oh, Mr. Hat, you shouldn't say such nasty things about the new director!

Maybe he'll get really paranoid and start thinking that the puppets are plotting his demise.

Given his puppet phobia, who the hell put him in charge?

I mean think of the possibilities - he can shout down the sock puppet without it being a personal attack on the puppeteer...

The theater's board of directors, if I hear tell correctly. I think there were very few qualified applicants, and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have taken the job if he hadn't backed himself quite so far into a financial corner.

I like the way you think.

Re:

Ah, the board of directors... Enough said.

Well, if the stripey football sock with union issues and stitched on eyes is prepared accost him, the Master of Puppets will just have to deal with the sock.

Well, sock puppets are The Talent, after all. If something like that did happen, I'd have to fill the house with marionettes and sock monkeys just to accelerate his slow decline into madness. It would be like Hitchcock's The Birds, only much creepier.


You know, I often wonder what I would talk about if I didn't have the roommate's experiences to filter through my perception.

Re: *ahem*

I've tossed my journal into friends only mode. I added you so that you can see how I stumbled upon you.

I used to teach at an art gallery (classes for children...I taught with a sock puppet...at times)

Still, a *naked*sockpuppet is nothing to be trifled with! *grin*

Re: *ahem*

As a sidebar to a discussion on vibrators? That may well be one of the best intros I've ever gotten.
