Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Seeing shows "just because"


I guess non-fucising puppets is better than no puppets at all?

Unless they become yet another stone in building the wall of misconception 
surrounding puppets.
I believe sock puppets are possibly the most victimized in the puppet 
styles, probably because of their foot symbolism, and the strong pop imagery 
of them being a synonymous of crappy work.

Yet, I know sock puppets can be made to have focus, great character, and 
greta performing possibilities. And it doesn't take a pro to do it either, 
once you know how.

There was only one Lamb Chop (a much better sock puppet).
Perhaps it is time for other sock puppets to get into the spotlight.
