When 22 words turns into 252 words, it isnt that good of a time (Short Notes From Far Out There 2)

This morning I woke up with ‘Life During Wartime’ playing in my head. It is may 14th. When the sun goes down there will be a full moon in the sky. And it feels sorta’ strange, because it is David Byrne’s birthday. He’s Sixty-Two: “I wanted to be a secret agent and an astronaut, preferably at the same time.”

“Dona Budd’s The Language of Art Knowledge: “Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. This international movement was begun by a group of artists and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara’s and Marcel Janco’s frequent use of the words “da, da,” meaning “yes, yes” in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name “Dada” came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to ‘dada’, a French word for ‘hobbyhorse’. Dada is the groundwork to abstract art and sound poetry, a starting point for performance art, a prelude to postmodernism, an influence on pop art, a celebration of antiart to be later embraced for anarcho-political uses in the 1960s and the movement that lay the foundation for Surrealism.”
