Do you know how difficult it is to make me feel bad for a street urchin? For anybody just begging? It’s almost impossible. They could be holding a sign that says “Sober war vet” while their dog births a liter of puppies right next to them and their kids do math homework on the other side and I’d still say, “Eh, sorry I got nothin’” without ever checking my pockets. But I feel genuinely bad for this trumpeter. That man, who looks like some mutant, midget version of Andre the Giant and sounds like Vizzini from Princess Bride gave the most savage critiquing a street performer has ever received. Untrained classically! Untrained contemporarily! You’re flat! You suck! Are you an artist, does anybody even know who you are? Who are you, you miserable, presumptuous, no-talent! 4 minutes of truly amazing and incredible insults. And they’re not from just anybody, guy’s an NYU film school graduate, so you know he knows what he’s talking about.
