Subject: [Puptcrit] How to vent the spleen through puppetry


I received the following wonderful suggestion from Gregory MacNaughton:

These Puptcrit spats make me think of the Taiwanese puppeteers I have had the 
fortune to meet and with whom I have studied. Taiwan of course is a rather 
condensed geographic location which at one time had hundreds of puppet companies
competing against one another. Puppeteers would frequently have spats and
arguments but they would not vent their spleen in conversation but in a puppet
show. I wonder if we could challenge everyone on the list that if they have
something provocative (or rude or insulting) that they want to say to someone
on the list, they should create a short piece, film it and post it to us all
watch. That way we can have our petty disagreemnts but they would always be
related to puppetry. Instead of trading obnoxious baiting and petty 
insults, let's encourage eachother to deveolp some chops. There is no way we 
can stop being petty but at least we could be creative about it. - Gregory
