I Knew It Just By Not Thinking Of You.

I saw him taking ketamine near the portable toilets, finally giving a contact high to the rest of the inner-farm festival.

The theater and the dance of song
are the theater of the furious rebellions
of the misery of the human body
facing the problems it does not penetrate
or whose passive,
inevident nature
excedes it.

So it dances

"I'm supposed to tell you that the reason we left is not because we wanted to or they wanted to, or what we're about to do needed us to," she says.

A suitcase of empty plastic bags sits next to me, covered in stickers of American independent record labels.

I tell her, no smile, we're almost out of food.

I say, in order to remake his anatomy.
Man is sick because he is badly constructed.
We must decide to strip him in order to scratch out his animalcule
which makes him itch to death,

and with god
his organs.

For tie me down if you want to,
but there is nothing more useless than an organ.

When you have given him a body without organs,
then you will have delivered him from all his automatisms and restored
him to his true liberty.

Then you will teach him again to dance inside out
as in the delirium of dance halls
and that inside out will be his true side out.

Yeah, It'd Be Too Hard.

- It's so much like the vision I saw. Nations in the background. I was reading Revelations. I'm so bad about remembering scripture, but I remember thinking, "That's me."

A block away people are waiting on the sidewalk for tables, for a nice dinner at Montage. Here at SE Belmont Street and Third Avenue, a crowd of men and women wear army-surplus fatigues, disposable Tyvek coveralls, and radiation badges. These people carry military C rations and covered casserole dishes. They cradle warm garlic bread wrapped in tinfoil.

A woman drops her casserole dish, and it breaks on the floor. "Fuck," she says. "It's the end of the world after nuclear annihilation, and I broke my hot bean dip."

The fact is that the pre-Colombian Indians were, contrary to whatever
one might have believed, a strangely civilized people
who had in fact known a form of civilization based on the exclusive
principle of cruelty.

Man, when he is not held back, is an erotic animal,
he has within him an inspired tremor,
a sort of pulsation
producing innumerable beasts which are the form the ancient terrestrial
peoples universally attributed to god.
That made what is called a spirit.
Now, this spirit which came from the American Indians is reappearing
a little bit everywhere today in scientific guise which serves only to
reveal this spirit's morbid infectuous hold, the salient state of vice,
but a vice pullulating with diseases.,
for, laugh as much as you wish,
what have been called microbes
is in fact god,
and do you know what the Americans and the Russians make their
atoms with?
They make them with the microbes of god.

I am not raving.

In 1972, when Walter opened his nightclub on Old Town, Roxy was in the original show. His first night tap dancing there, "Roxy's first boy tap dance got this," Walter says and claps once. "The next night, in drag, he got a standing ovation because nobody'd ever seen a tap-dancing drag queen."

Philip K. Dick Talks Of Roog.

To make matters worse, I now had begun to nurse the delusion that I might be able to make a living as a writer. The fantasy in my head was that I could quit my job at the record store, buy a better typewriter, and write all the time, and still make the payments on my house. As soon as you start thinking that they come for you and haul you away. It's for your own good. When you are discharged later on as cured you no longer have that fantasy. You go back to work at the record store (or the supermarket or polishing shoes). See, the thing is, being a writer is -- well, it's like the time I asked a friend of mine what field he was going into when he got out of college and he said, "I'm going to be a pirate." He was dead serious.

Moreover I've definitely broken with art, style or talent in all the drawings that you will see here. I want to say that there will be hell to pay for whoever considers them works of art, works of aesthetic stimulation of reality.
