Our little spectacle where we live dubbed the whole Edvin Laine’s Unknown Soldier movie in Kaurismäki style with a Carpenteresque soundtrack, was received well.

Except for this one bloke, who ranted to the Cosmic Comic Cafe staff that the performers don’t seem to know anything about war. Factually he was of course right: None of us has been in a war. But we’ve been to movies! And bars.

We take the reaction as a small victory. Indignation, if anything, measures the value of a performance.

… yeah, this is better.

It is LIVE, euroSIDious in the costume.
