The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes = GEORGE CARLIN...Stained glass, engraved glass, frosted glass–give me plain glass = JOHN FOWLES...Music is the mathematics of the gods = PYTHAGORAS...Nothing is more fluid than language = R.L.SWIHART

Kafka's Performance Artists

To crack a nut is truly no feat, so no one would ever dare to collect an audience in order to entertain it with nut-cracking. But if all the same one does do that and succeeds in entertaining the public, then it cannot be a matter of simple nut-cracking.

Franz Kafka
Josephine The Folksinger

Blogger's Notes
If there is a better story about a performance artist in need of an agent than Kafka's The Hunger Artist, please let me know.
Kafka's performance artists is to Kafkaesque performance artists as lightning is to the lightning bug.
(Gregor Samsa nothwithstanding.)
