Mydlack's eclectic work begins with an explanation. In 1985, he created the idea to tour a series of performances through people's living rooms. The piece that follows shows him performing a spirited ballad about the Lone Ranger, Tonto, and a small child. He accompanies himself on the accordion. Occasionally, somewhat random, misspelled subtitles flash across the screen. In the suburban-style living room in which Mydlack performs, a handful of onlookers observe him while seated on a couch. Their reactions alternate between amusement and blank stares. The work is approximately six minutes long.
