The Sunday Morning News | Slog:

I'm a little surprised there is so little mention of Mike Daisey's current shows on SLOG.

The "American Utopias" show was powerful. He weaves in some comedy and absurdist imagery about Disney, Burning Man, and Zucotti Park into a meditation on the nature of public/private spaces, the nature of corporations in modern America, the idea of assembly, and the ideas of genuine versus manufactured experiences.

The themes of the show are very relevant to what's going on now, including what happened on Capitol Hill last week. It seems bizarre to me that the entire SLOG staff apparently missed this show.

Looking forward to Fucking Fucking Fucking Ayn Rand next week.
