where the grapes of wrath are stored

 LUX SOAP
WOMAN'S DAY

p. 13

Lever Bros. advertisement for Lux Soap: Woman's Day, 1 September 1949 (Gallery of Graphic Design)

AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE: (opening a box of Lux): "Why don't it have an electric eye the box flip open when it see me and hand itself to the Automat Handy Man he should put inna water already ... The Handy Man is outa control since Thursday, he been getting physical with me and I didn't put it in his combination at all ... And the Garbage Disposal Unit snapping at me and the nasty old Mixmaster keep trying to get up under my dress ... I got the most awful cold, and my intestines is all constipated ... I'm gonna put it in the Handy Man's combination he should administer me a high colonic already."

LUX SOAP
WOMAN'S DAY
05/01/1949
p. 115

Lever Bros. advertisement for Lux Soap: Woman's Day, 1 May 1949 (Gallery of Graphic Design)

THE COUNTY CLERK: "So there I was sitting in front of Jed's store over in Cunt Lick my peter standing up straight as a jack pine under my Levis just a-pulsin' in the sun  ... Weell, old Doc Scranton walks by, a good old boy too, there's not a finer man in this valley than Doc Scranton. He's got a prolapsed asshole and when he wants to get screwed he'll pass you his ass on three feet of in-test-tine ... If he's a mind to it he can drop out a piece of gut reaches from his office clear over to Roy's Beer Place, and it go feelin' around lookin' for a peter, just a-feelin' around like a blind worm ... So old Doc Scranton sees my peter and he stops like a pointin' dog and he says to me, 'Luke, I can take your pulse from here.'"

Brubeck and Young Seward fight with hog castrators through barns and cages and yipping kennels ... whinnying horses bare great yellow teeth, cows bellow, dogs howl, copulating cats scream like babies, a pen of hogs, spines bristling, give a great Bronx cheer. Brubeck the Unsteady has fallen to the sword of Young Seward, clutches at blue intestines squirting from an eight-inch gash. Young Seward cuts off Brubeck's cock and holds it pulsing in the smoky rust sunrise ...

Brubeck screams ... subway brakes spit ozone ...

"Stand back, folks. Stand back."

"They say somebody pushed him." 

"He was weaving around unsteady like he couldn't see good."

KOTEX
LADIES' HOME JOURNAL
03/01/1952
INSIDE BACK

Kotex Co. advertisement for Kotex: Ladies Home Journal, 1 March 1952 (Gallery of Graphic Design)

Mary the Lesbian Governess has slipped to the pub floor on a bloody Kotex ... a three-hundred-pound fag tramples her to death with pathic whinnies ...

He sings in a hideous falsetto: 

He is stamping out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He has loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword. 

He pulls a gilded wooden sword and chops the air. His corset flies off and whistles into the dart board.

The old bullfighter's sword buckles on bone and whistles into the heart of the espontaneo, pins his unconsummate valor to the stands.  

William S. Burroughs (1914-1997): from Naked Lunch (1959)

Hey Tom, I've been trying to catch up with your work here, reeling in the weeks but you're keeping 10 steps ahead. This post is so cool. streetmax's Matrix, Burroughs, Giovanni, and Ryan Schude pictures -- perfection from top to bottom. Sheep? Yeah, sheep.

Yo, Tom, lovely to hear from you and esp on this post, pristine in its untouchability until this moment. My fave of all time!!

streetmax captures the mute truth of our stunned end-of-history world awfully well, I reckon.

I think the secret lies in the spacing of the figures. Our wonderful advanced apartness. No touching!!

But then how would I know. If a smart-smart iPhone 6 or next-app whatchamacallit came up and bit me, I'd never know what did it, and the device would probably be even more confused, if that's even possible, which I doubt.

All down to the spacing of the figures.

old time physiology, and who among us can hit a curve ball anyway? And, esp., that Muybridge’s discovery in motion is only nearly confirmed in the bipeds!
