I hate more kinds of mimes now.

Because I was raised backwoods style, meaning without TV for the most part, I never got to see a lot of the crazy fucked up stuff everyone else did growing up. One of of my communities some posted a video from an experimental mime troop, and I was Horrified. Not only are these things terrifying, but the act is unbelievably sexist. I can't believe this was on a kids show.

If you refuse to give into my desire, I'll take your voice away. I find the other videos I could manage to watch equally terrifying, but not quite as appalling.

If I had seen this as I child, I would have spent several months to terrified to sleep.

While the sexism is certainly bothersome, I still for the most part find the Mummenschanz to be pretty fascinating. I tend to feel a bit of an affection for anyone who creates their own performance genre, rather than just working within some existing context. Jim Henson very much did as well, and I really love how he would go out of his way to promote these styles of performance that otherwise no one would ever see.
