Happy Berfdaze Robert Dobbs!!!
The retrieval of oral culture in a visual society where the word makes the market with centers everywhere and margins nowhere (eye come from?), museum without walls and city as classroom while cut and pasting pastimes of the mystery landscape with social networks when holeopathically juggling Dobbs and Bobs, who travel at the speed of thought amongst inventories of hidden psychic and social effects qualifying every known Menippean narratorial clause because there ain’t no sanity clause on the mourning stage at the memory theater of the rogues’ gagster gallery, thus all-at onceness, rearview mirrorism transforms hendiadys, tetrads and percepts synesthesially smelling “speak that I may see you” which seduces discarnate Mobius strips of past software hoicking hot & cold fusion massage. Club 22 repurposes the “who new” genres of antiquarian and post-antiquarian James Joyce po-mo decon studies by transforming the very format of coach house continuums lectures into the form and content of Finnegans Wake itself in this berfday partee.
G.K. Chesterton quipped, “Angels can fly because they take themselves so lightly.” The abnihilisation of the etym? Maybe it is a byte like Garner Ted doing Flaps&Randy as Jack Nicholson doing Pee-Wee Herman while reworkin’ the whittling “Angles can buy because they tax themselves so litely.”
Is Rumpelstiltskin (aka Joaidane — “He who talks too much” in Arabic) a Houdini-like rattle of the harvest moon? Know more questions from you Buddy?
Can we brake the chaosmos code of projection mapping the Android Mom? Meme?
Hand signals for the blind? Percept plunder for the recent future?
WHO’S JAMMIN’ THE CULTURE JAMMERS? Rank Slappa?
Our “consciousness can be freed from the shackles of mechanical culture” and can “enable us to roam the cosmos.” Party people” learn the secret songs that orchestrate the universe.” “Must we continue to mow down the Kennedys in order to illustrate that the hot politics of the old machines won’t work on the cool and involving TV medium?” — McLuhan ’69. “I should prefer to de-fuse this gigantic human bomb by starting a dialogue somewhere on the side-lines to distract the trigger-men, or to needle the somnambulists.” — McLuhan ‘51.
Celebrate Bob’s 100th year of living centennial cultures as our business.
