This is a post.

Princeton did well to publish this book: The Posthuman Dada Guide: TZARA AND LENIN PLAY CHESS.

If you listened to Jon Weiner's interview of Andre Codrescu yesterday on Weiner's KPFK show, you were likely heartened to hear again that the twentieth century was invented by a bunch of irreligious Eastern European Jews (and even some religious ones, like Schoenberg).

Codrescu is both unbearably heavy and unbearably light. He once sent me an email and it was all about sex. I like him and have no wishes for him; he is fine on his own. He knows that Dada unquestionably won the last century, as neoclassical won the eighteenth and impressionism the nineteenth. We are waiting for something to win this one...tap tap tap...
