Just a copy of the Mutt editorial

I'm exhausted from overwork right now, so here I'll allow myself to give nothing more than the famous editorial about the "bathroom fixture" that someone attempted to enter into the 1917 Exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists. The editorial's author is not officially known — however, as Calvin Tomkins notes in his biography of Marcel Duchamp (which is the book I'm copying from): not only are the ideas recognizably Duchamp's, but "so is the succinct and not quite American-sounding syntax."


This afternoon I read another favorite poem by Walt Whitman: Facing West from California's Shores.

Also I made another piece of audio furniture that is purposely stiff & un-funky.
