THIS is the task of all writers and artists tired of cultural stagnation business-as-usual mentalities recycled postures and ideas tremendous sums of money thrown at the artistic problem but creating no excitement. ART for most people in this country has become a DUTY.
"Read this poem. It's good for you."
"I don't want to read it."
"Read this story then."
"But I don't want to."
The tragedy is that new exciting art and literature IS being created. I've discovered it, my friends-- the New Stuff, the True Gen, and will be announcing it AT THIS VENUE in between pointing out the moldiness and madness of today's cultural fakirs. Help is on its way.
America's culture belongs not to the intellectualized fossilized mandarins the professional academic authorities conglomerate machine flunkies or foundational snob money launderers. Not even to the sons and daughters of Presidents, TV execs, and bankers.
It belongs to the people.
It belongs to you and me.
