"Ken and Gee Julie Goethe Institut Boston Freitag 8 Sept 17:
wilhelm neusser elsewhere provincial perpsectives. paintings not
from berlin but from provinces. gee julie took photo of me
next to sinter klaus. a home on a strasse looked like hannover where "you-lie"
(Duetsch und Dutch sprechen) hast freunds. GG Allin's mutti,ein
Gunther, also ist von Hannover. "you-lie" met some folks and the feller
said "this is flensburger beer? do you know where Flensburg is?" why
Pierre Le Coutre ist von there! "let's toast your friend in flensburg!"
(photo by me). We cornered a Deutschman on the steps and Blodgetted out our
Deutsch lineage and where "you-lie" had been summer. he probably said
"mein gott in himmel"! (beforei started collecting Beatle records
in '68,i still read WWII comics; ALL influences on music to kill
by! many more goethe institute events coming up! we'll be there
like flies on schiess!"...
