Not a lot of people know this, but shadow puppetry is the eighth largest consumer of fossil fuels in the United States.

Shadow puppets?

I cant think of anything more boring than staring at some stupid shadows, for God's sake.  This is what happens when you dont have any friends.

I like to pedal around to peddle my petals.

Hey, when you rack up tens of thousands in debt to get your master's in Puppetry, you pretty much have to go out on the shadow puppet circuit.  It's how you pay your dues.  Kinda like how you have to do your time as an assistant crack whore before you can get your full crack whore card.

I'd much rather see a good band like Blind Pilot who pedals around with all of their instruments behind their bikes.

It's a patel-powered projector.

It does the needful for the puppeteers.

What kind of flower petals do the use to power the projector ? Sunflowers ?

(Hippies are sitting around in Carl's basement, drinking mushroom tea)
Carl: Man, this is some good tea. You guys feel anything yet?
Sunflower: Yeah dude, the walls are flowing into the floor whaaaaaat?
Pete: So trippy, dude.
(Carl gets up, and knocks over a lamp next to his futon)
Sunflower: Harsh!
Pete: Party foul!
Carl: That gives me an idea!
(Carl puts his hands in front of the lampshade aperture and begins making crude shadow puppets dance on the wall)
Sunflower: It's like...they're ALIVE!
Pete: Amazing! We have to share this with the world!
Sunflower: But that would mean going on tour, and having a grimy tour bus, and burning all those nasty carbons!
Carl: But...what if we BIKE everywhere, like we do around here? And we could have a generator that's people powered to do the lights! I can even get extra sheets from my mom's house!

To be totally honest, I've tried to deliberately typo headline submissions before, just to get a green. Because motherFarkers jump all over a spelling or grammar error.

Came here for a "Petal" clarification, saw Farkers all over it, smothering it like a newborn. Good times.

I'm pretty sure subby meant "pedo powered".

You should try splitting infinitives. Maybe use some sentence fragments.

You're right.

By the way when is your one-man petal-powered fleshlight show Coming by America? I want tickets.

well played, subby.  well played.

Wow..this group must be insufferable

The group plans to spend the month of June writing the show, making the puppets and rehearsing. They'll live together on a farm that belongs to Ratner's parents   - A whole MONTH?  Should take about 5 minutes

King, a member of the company, has a background in activist work, and is currently involved in immigration issues.  - That must be interesting dinner conversation

all the members share an interest in creating public art and presenting it in "a less stuffy environment." - What that really means is they want to do this, but it is not commercially feasible but if they can get donations or better yet tax money, so much the better

bikes and puppets were integral to the project from its inception - Not sure, never thought of the two together, seems sort of random

Ratner told me she plans to perform a piece she's written about the history of indigo. - Oh my, you know that will be riveting...a color from the rainbow

JohnCarter: Oh my, you know that will be riveting...a color from the rainbow


Probably the plant-based dyestuff, not the spectral color, but that won't make it any more riveting.

No John Cusack or John Malkovich references?  FARK, I am disappoint.

yeah, uh, it's probably for children... soooo..... probably not specially catered to you, as hard as that may be to believe.
