Well, having been to Lawrence, let me just say, this makes perfect sense.

Being that it's Kansas, I believe this is some sort of coded message to proponents of intelligent design. Translated, it means: All your schools are belong to us!

Wasn't William S Burroughs from Lawrence? He did a bunch of cut and paste type novels, reminescent of Dada...

International Dada Month?

I lived a coupla houses away from this guy for two years. They had a lot of junk in their yard (supposedly art i guess) and the grass was overgrown constantly. Also I remember him painting his car purple with nail polish or house paint or something. College towns ftw.

ubermensch: I don't think Burroughs was from Lawrence but he lived there the end of his life. There was a big huzzah about naming a creek after him awhile back about as some of the more upstanding residents of lawrence didn't want a creek named after a devient. I never made it to his house but I hung out at the guys house he left his estate to, it was fun

While I don't like many of this guy's positions, I admit to being amused by this, and by the comments on the website. Too many people managing to get up in arms over, well, zebra.

In Dada spirit, Highberger did not select a specific month to celebrate Dada. Instead hes proclaiming International Dada month as Feb. 4, April 1, March 28, July 15, Aug. 2, Aug. 7, Aug. 16, Aug. 26, Sept. 18, Sept. 22, Oct. 1, Oct. 17 and Oct. 26. Highberger selected the dates by rolling dice and pulling numbers from a hat.

That is sheer brilliance. I am genuinely impressed. Even if he does have one of the world's premier silly names and an uncanny resemblance to the creepy father on "Family Ties."

Two main groups of people who live in Lawrence: 1)KU students and 2)hippies. Since they feed off each other perfectly, this is no surprise.

Salla walla walla hooooo!

Cupajo wins. Any reference to Gregory always wins. Zimzam.

How do you translate "cockpunch" into nonsense language?

If he needs a lot of nonsense gibberish to recite, all he has to do is read a FARK thread concerning politics or guns.

I say unto you: there is no beginning and we do not tremble, we are not sentimental. We are a furious Wind, tearing the dirty linen of clouds and prayers, preparing the great spectacle of disaster, fire, decomposition.

OH GAWD...yep - i'd have to agree - this fits Lawrence, KS perfectly...

Buch of whacks over there in liberalville, glad I'm in the next state over - but watch - Fred Phelps will find a way to protest it!

What is this thing called existentialism?
What is this thing called neo-Dadaism?
What is this thing called post-impressionism?
What is this thing called neo-classicism?

Why don't they call it art?
Why don't the call it good?
Why don't they call it cool?
Why don't they call it something monosyllabic?

Q: How many Dadaists does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: A fish.

Considering the fact that about 90%* of the weed consumed in Kansas gets smoked by Lawrence residents, this comes as no surprise at all to me.
