...because if you can't, please don't click on this link. The clip contains multiple F-Bombs and adult content from monologuist Mike Daisey during a live performance in Cambridge, MA last week, and the last thing we want is the sort of reaction that he received. So here's your fair warning about the harsh language.
Have we given enough WARNING about the STRONG LANGUAGE?
If you think you can handle it, then watch the clip to see the reaction of 87 members of Daisey's audience who apparently couldn't -- then the remarkable reaction of Daisey himself, who manages to pull his show back together afterward.
I don't know art, but I know what I don't like.
Mike Daisey writes about the incident on his website.
BackStage.com reports it may not have necessarily been a Christian protest, but a visiting high school choral group, led out by chaperones who apparently did not get a STRONG enough WARNING about the HARSH LANGUAGE in advance.
Update: Mike Daisey posts about the phone conversation he had with the water-pourer a few days later:
His name is David... He has three kids--one is 21, and two are 17--and he's
terrified of the world. Terrified by violence, and sex, and he sees it
all linked together--a horrifying world filled with darkness,
pornography and filth that threatens his children, has threatened them
all his life. They're older now, but he says he still sees things the
same way--and that the only way to protect his children and himself is
to lock it all out of his life.
