I just couldn't watch that - too boring. I think maybe we've grown a little too sophisticated for that style of entertainment nowadays.

Mimes are kinda scary.

I saw him on stage in Nashville, TN when I was young and still growing (and still soft impressionable clay). It must have been the third row center where I sat.
Although his word voice was silent, I recall M.M.'s animal-like puff blasts that released in his breathing as he contorted through each "skit".
By my being so close, what I see in my remembering thoughts is the excersion that his body ( He was still considered simi-old then ((mid or late 60's)) twisted about and the facial expression to project outward, far past where I viewed him.
The director/comicbook writer/tarot card expert/ early student of MM,..... Mr. A. Jordowowsky(sp?), I only found out latter, wrote my more memorable bits that M.M. had preformed that night. A life lived has many veiled connections that continue until the end.
