"Here ye Here ye!!! Calling all SHAMANIACS! CIRCUS FREAKS! METAPROGRAMMERS! ZOMBIES! CLOWN ARMIES! ANONYMOUS! MUSICIANS! SEAMSTRESSES! LUNATICS! HORNERY (F)ARTISTS! THE REVOLUTION HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN!
We will no longer wait for some fake elected “AMERIKKKAN OFFICIAL” to liberate us. We hereby TRANSFORM OURSELVES into our own superheros, villains, and heroines, liberating ourselves NOW from the track lit tomb of bureaucrappic politics. Do we want to spend our precious energy revolting against a system that’s designed to crush our very resistance, or do we want another alternative altogether? I’d rather party down during the apocalypse then spend my life force playing by someone else’s rules in a game I bound to lose!
Election Day (Tuesday Nov. 4th) is fast approaching, and we want to make a cosmikataclysmic statement this year. The puppets in charge are just that- puppets. They are put there to give us the illusion of free will and a choice. This somehow placates people into thinking if they just cast their vote, they are playing their obligatory cultural part in the grand political play. Why would we dain to participate in the grandest puppet show of all time? (Can you say, “Illuminaughty, Oil Tycoon, Corporation, and Freemason?”) Because we’ve been programmed to think that somehow our vote makes a difference. While this may be true to some small degree, more and more- voting machines are becoming rigged by the Republicans, and the popular vote doesn’t amount to dog dookie. Corporations have more rights than individual citizens.
If you think that a 2 party system is any kind of choice, the revolution is here to prove you wrong. If voting changed anything, it would be illegal. We do however support you getting out there to vote for whatever degree of change it’s capable of enacting, but we also hope that you’ll go in costume to show your support for alternative freedom not dependent on our two spoon-fed choices and the linear, rational, anti-intelligence of modern humanity’s monotony. COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST MONOTONY NOW!!!!
I vote for a giant army of anonymous clowns, costumed superheros and supervillains, and massive zombie walks to the polls and through the streets and stores with creative protest signs and a fire in your gut urging to do things you never thought were possible in public. Anarcho-political street theatre (with props!) videotaped and photographed in L.A., New York, San Francisco, Tucson, AZ, and anywhere else our agents of chaos spring up and call the troops into action. We already have our agents stationed in these major cities, so if you would like to participate on Election Day, send a quick note of inquiry to the contact below with your city, and we will disclose the various locales closer to the date. We are presently coagulating this vision, so if you have any artistic and organizational ideas, please feel free to share. And pass this invite along! We are still looking for other art generals who can push the red button on their collective group factions and promote the art revolution. Recruits are always welcome.
WE ARTISTIC REVOLUTIONARIES dumb ourselves UP!!—– With half-crocked fairy princess alligator costumes and demonic security guard uniforms. We are the not-so-secret agents of CHAOS and INSPIRATION blowing the hot breath of MAGICK in the face of a sleeping population, stirring them for an ETERNAL, psychoiridescent instant from the NIGHTMARE OF HISTORY. ‘Cause this sucker’s going to collapse, and we pretend it’s not, but make no mistake- this civilization is going down. We will dress it up and party it down, with singing and dancing and laughing and crying and making out in public all decked out like the funny animals we know we really are. And when did the masquerade begin? We don’t know. And when will it end? We really can’t say. This is the climax of our species.
We will be employing a strict regime of costumed anti-camouflage as far as the “I” can see. Costume is your PSYCHIC ARMOR and is an INDISPENSABLE part of fooling the pigs into thinking we’re just some innocent freaks out for a few laughs.
The War on Terror is a FAKE. The Real Fake War is the War on Anxiety- Anxiety that Keeps us paralyzed from feeling like we can DO, BE and WEAR exactly what we want, when we want. So bust out your body paints and throw on a chicken hat. No one will remember the nightmare of history when we all look so stupid fabulous, and believe me, we will all be craving a hearty dose of forgetting soon.

I’d like to give you a personal account about the necessity of costume as psychic armor. For a long time, I attracted feds and security guards like flies to honey. They could smell my anti-authority streak and went right for my throat. I was usually able to smooth talk my way out of these situations or otherwise escape but walked away shut down from my creative expression and very upset. However, when I started wearing costume, something amazing occurred. The cops started to like me. In fact, they thought I was so cute they started taking pictures of me and with me, and not mugshots either. My intuition about the necessity of costume was proved correct, as I found a way to completely throw the trail off of my malicious intent and hatred for pigs. Pigs became my cohorts in fake crime! The last thing you want to do in this art battle is get a pig who wants to smash your face into the pavement, and I’m telling you, COSTUME AND NO FEAR IS THE WAY!!!!! Subvert them with humor! If you are caught in the midst of some anti-patriot anarcho spectacle, FREEZE! Literally! Don’t move! What a beautiful vision of motionless clowns and impotent feds who can’t arrest anyone who’s not doing anything against the law!
To join the art army, write firstname.lastname@example.org, Joan o’ fArt on tribe.net, or www.myspace.com/thebadbabysitterproject with your city and you will be added as an indispensable part of the mission. Feel free to share all pertinent ideas and visions to add to the collective pool and help us achieve immortality. And please pass this invite along to all potentially interested parties. Infinite Thanks"
