Show 53: Memphis at DeClyre Cooperative

Turnout: 15 ish
Monetary Votes of Support (some house donation): 37
Personal Injury Report: Ben tried to impress me with his match lighting skills and fried his thumb. He also banged his elbow within the first few seconds of the performance later that night. These things will heal but the stare of the giant eyeball pictured below will not.
Show Description: Another living room show! I really enjoy doing these, muddling the public/private space relations. It had been a while since the last one, and this time there were cats. I was hoping one of them, named Prometheus, would go and jump on Ben's lap during the show, as this would add a whole nother dimension to his character.

(Prometheus: Among other things, had "wily" intelligence, gave fire to humans against Zues's wishes, and was punished for this by being chained to a rock with his liver eaten out daily by an eagle.)

There were some nice individual discussions afterwards and we also were privy to one of the most comfortable sleeping arrangements yet. More and more these shows have me thinking about a complete change of attitude for my character, just as an experiment.

Did you see this show? If you did, write a review, comment on it or ask us some questions. We'd love to hear it because we believe in artistic transparency.


  1. Y'know, that vulture feast is one of the things you see when you "look over the land of the dead". Are you going to see an orange cat there from now on?

  2. Yes, I know. And no, the cat doesn't have a chance. You have no idea what I think of when that last "land of the dead" rolls around.
