NSK State Invades Berlin, Asserts Universal Hegemony

With crosses on their arms and cogwheels on their lapels, delegates arrived at the Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt to take part in the First NSK Citizens’ Congress, three days of deliberation to determine the future of the NSK State. Its emblem was there to greet them, projected full across a wall, replete with thorns, torches, and a swastika. Even for someone who has seen it before, this sigil invokes the primal reaction that the Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) art collective often demands.

Number 14

dentist drills

…we must always interpret what are called “˜dreams of dental stimulus”™ as relating to masturbation and the dreaded punishment of it.
— Freud, Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis, Lecture IX

The dental assistant, a pretty Hispanic girl, pointed at my lower left jaw, “Which is it? Number 19?”

“No, up top: Number 14.”

She smiled, “You sure know your teeth.”

I shrugged, “I know my numbers.”

A filling falls out. There”™s a mix-up at the laundromat. The car is making a weird noise. It”™s tax time again. The gas valve on the boiler is leaking. The city is cutting down your trees. You can”™t find a flashlight to go look at the boiler. Trains are running twenty minutes late. The bicycle has a flat. The door lock is sticking from the cold. Why is my left eye twitching?

Fun is suspicious. It is, at best, frivolous. There is no “right to fun” protected by the constitution (although a few r[DIE VERWENDUNG DES URSPRUENGLICHEN NAMENS DES UNTERNEHMENS WURDE UNS UNTERSAGT]s did propose a right to pursue happiness). If anything, we must be protected from it. Due to fun’s flashy appeal (it’s FUN!), it must be taken off of the streets, away from vulnerable children, and isolated to sanctioned fun zones for those wastrels who cannot resist its hollow allure.

“Couldn’t sleep. Wrote this.”

Das schickt mir Carlito in einer Mail und ich wünschte, er würde öfter nicht schlafen können. Von unserem NYC-Korrespdondenten: Warum die Klimakatastrophe nicht aufzuhalten ist. Wahrscheinlich.
