I'm not a big fan of art having social or political messages, makes me feel like I'm being coerced in a neutral zone. I'd compare this to Trevor Noah's comedy but you executed it well- loved S4&5 specifically.

On another thread this would make a great discussion - what an interesting and wild statement. I love it how perceptions of the world can be so different.

Good comments, Ike, a perspective I didn't anticipate. Fair comment. Nice to see you participating. :)

Dave - interesting. Care to start a discussion on this in The Commons?

What a maddening (in a good way) read, especially S4. I remember fire ants crawling on my feet when I was a kid in the Mojave Desert - a rich and vivid visual reminder. I was completely off guard with the ending but it fits so well.

Of course there are little Satans ablaze
