Answering questions about Carnivalesque

I have posted some more thoughts about my "Artist's talk" on the Digging Pitt blog. I took a stab at answering the two most common questions I've been asked as a result of the show. Have a look if you are interested... Here's the link

When I looked up the meaning of Guignol and Grand Guignol, I thought the disguised innocence of a children's puppet show being used to mock the establishment, and the macabre theater provided and excellent description of what I expected to see. It did not disappoint. Both light innocence and darker visions were portrayed. I drove ten hours...I shopped for pepperoni, and I've worn the imprinted t-shirt....now, when the h____ do we get our photo? smile PS...loved the shirt.

The deleted comment was merely a duplicate of the one above.

The element of the show that you mentioned was embedded in the idea of the show before I even picked the name. When you shared that meaning with me I had the thought thst this was a perfect example of "serendipity".

Of course, as you know, you're participation in the show was invaluable. The delivery of your framed photo is on my "to do" list. The closing is Saturday, and then I will be going away for a week, so I'll contact you to make arrangements. Thanks again.

Actually, the second was better edited, done after I thought the first hadn't gotten through. This blog thing is new to me. Had it been in existence decades ago, so many of us would have had their life stories documented (though mine would have, for the most part, made boring reading). Those parts not boring would have been left off on the rare chance my Mother would have gotten the Internet....now that's funny.

Yeah, the potential for first person social histories is amazing. These forums might have made redundant, or sugnificantly altered, Studs Terkel's work.

Editing for the eyes of relatives could get tricky. I figure I wouldn't put anything up for an anonymous audience that, let's say... I wouldn't want my dad to see.
