[Vertigo ends]

MacPhisto: "I've been a busy little devil." [yawns] "But you all made it... so much easier for me. You're paying people... to listen in on your conversations." [wheezy laughter] "How wonderful!"

MacPhisto: "And so many of my protégés are on the rise. Vladimir! Oh, Vladdy-Vlad, dear old Vladdy-Vlad, killing his enemies with all sorts of wonderful... concoctions! Polonium up the bum!" [sniggers] "Worked a treat."

MacPhisto: "America! Ha! The gift that keeps on giving! I used to have to call the White House. Now the White House... calls... me."

MacPhisto: [whispers] "The Ku Klux Klan... back in vogue. Unhooded in the streets of Charlottesville, without the silly costumes. Who'd have thought? I'm told they're often very religious people. They have a book that justifies pretty much all their bad behaviour. It's called the Bible!" [sniggers]

MacPhisto: "And then there's people who don't believe I exist." [whispers] "They're my favourite! That's when I get to do my best work."

MacPhisto: "But in the end... I'm inside all of you. That's my favourite place to be. It's good to laugh, isn't it? Just not at me!"

[Acrobat begins]

MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. Just close your eyes, you can feel the enemyyy! Hyaaa! Haaa!"

Tulsa, May 2, 2018

 

Desire, greed, lust, deceit, vanity — all the essentials for a showman in all his forms, and of course a license to just look in the mirror. Oh! I haven’t seen this guy in quite a while. Oh! Oh! Age brings beauty and a spot of bother. Ha! Is there a dermatologist in the house? Is there a slight blemish I see? I’ve been a busy little devil – oh yes! But you’ve all made it so much easier for me these days. I told Stalin, that one day that people would bug themselves. Oh yes, and here we are. The truth is dead, and the KKK are out on the streets of Charlottesville without their silly costumes. Who’d have thought? Tulsa, Tulsa…When you think I don’t exist, that’s when I do my best work.

 

Don’t believe what you hear

Don’t believe what you see

Just close your eyes

You can feel the enemy.

 

St. Louis, May 4, 2018

 

Desire, greed, lust, deceit, vanity — all the essentials for the showman in all his forms and of course a license to just look in the mirror. Oh! I haven’t seen this guy for a while. Oh! I haven’t seen this guy for a while. Oh! Oh! I see a little blemish. Is there a dermatologist in the house? I feel busy for a devil, but you’ve all made it so much more easy for me. I told Stalin all those years ago people would be spying on themselves with their telephones. The truth is dead and the KKK are alive out on the streets of Charlottesville without their silly costumes on. Who’d have thought? Oh St. Louis, when you think I don’t exist, that’s when I do my best work.

Desire, greed, lust, deceit, vanity — all essentials for the showman in all his forms, and of course a license to just look in the mirror. Oh! Haven’t seen you in quite a while. Oh! Oh! Age brings beauty and a spot of bother. Is there a dermatologist in the house? I have a little blemish. How the hell are you California? I hear you’re a little backed up on the 101. Who do you think turned the 680 into the 280? Hello? I do love highways. My absolute favorite is the information superhighway. I love information on people. I was just today at the coronation of Comrade Putin, my old protege. I remember telling him back in his days in the KGB, soon people will actually spy on themselves. So here we are, the truth is dead and the KKK are out on the streets of Charlottesville without their silly costumes. Who’d have thought? Oh San Jose. When you don’t believe we exist, that’s when I do my best work.

I’m a man of wealth and taste. I’ve been around for many a long year. Stole many a man’s soul to waste. I was there in Charlottesville when the KKK sieg heiled together. They made sure the president’s hands were full with stormy weather. Pleased to meet you. Hope you guessed my name. My name is actually Mr. MacPhisto, sometimes I try to be Mick Jagger. Oh San Jose. It’s when you don’t believe that I exist, that’s when I do my best work.

Desire, greed, lust, showoffishness, deceit, vanity — all the essentials for a front man like myself. Guilty of all. And of course, a license to just look in the mirror. Oh. Very revealing. Age brings a spot of bother. Is there a dermatologist in the house? My name is Mr. MacPhisto. I have always been with you, though its nice when I get a chance to dress up. It feels like I’m making a comeback. Do you get that feeling? You’ve made it all so much easier for me with your telephones and your zeros and ones. I’m so proud of you Comrade Putin, dearest Vlad, I told you one day people would spy on themselves. The truth is dead. And the KKK are out on the streets of Charlottesville without their silly costumes. How very honoured. Get with it, Vladdy Vlad. Polonium ???? seems a little old school. Oh.

non so se sia stata una buona idea questa... anzi forse proprio no.

poteva creare qualche altro personaggio nuovo e non ripescare qualcosa dal passato

Sono d'accordo, resto dell'idea che non avrebbero dovuto scomodarlo.

Oggi mi pare che abbia poco senso.

Io speravo nel Mcphisto visto da Kimmel tempo fa...

Questo non mi piace molto.

10 per il messaggio, 5 per la mise en scène. Bono ha dei collaboratori, ai loro livelli certe cose non le pensi affacciato alla finestra della tua cameretta. Comunque questo show ha qualcosa di diverso, personalmente, sarò una stecca fuori dal coro, ma mi sta entusiasmando. Sempre tornando in tema, l'impressione è anche quella che MacPhisto 2018 stia pagando il suo tributo al predicatore inscenato lo scorso anno in occasione di Exit. Al momento un po' di rammarico, perché poteva venirne fuori qualcosa di straordinario...forse preso un po' sottogamba.

non c'è storia con quella a Roma alla residenza papale, dove chiaramente nessuno gli passò il Papa (anzi, nessuno al centralino capiva una parola d'inglese.. la telefonata sembrava uno sketch di totò). fu una roba esilarante  :hearteyes:
