American patriot Thomas P. Jameson III has taken exception to Victor Dmitrievitch Huliganov’s poetry reading, and responds with his own reading of a Limey Poet “Lorryate”, or Trucker poet.
This is the second character I produced with the webcam – after Viktor Huliganov, but Thomas P. Jameson III was not very popular with my audience – in fact some Americans seem to have taken exception to some of what he did. I could probably do a bit more with the character, but Viktor sort of comes easier.
This was only the second piece I did with Huliganov, but already he starts to move more in the direction of the professor. It was also one of several pieces involving personas who came on and read poems. It was fun, and I don’t know why I didn’t do more, but I think the reason is that the songs took over from the poetry – however, the poetry’s still out there, and I’m sure I’ll come back to it.
For one of my friends this remains their favorite piece of mine on the internet, and I must admit it’s one of my favorites too, even though it hasn’t really had its fair share of views, yet…
