TZARA NOT DUCHAMP
If it ain’t a pleasure, it ain’t a poem.
So K.G. defends Fritterman’s Metropolis thus:
consumerism is boring
consumerism is contemporary reality
good literature should reflect contemporary reality
good literature is boring
Fun is a medicinal bath, the culture industry never fails to prescribe it.
– Adorno and Horkheimer
Fun is no problem. Prescription is problem.
Who controls the fun controls the measure.

giving in giving is
giving is in giving
giving is giving in

Refuse OTC literatures!
