#BarbaraKruger for Newsweek, July 3, 1992. (at Shupp’s Grove Antique Market)
Today was my first time stepping foot at my old high school, since I was kicked out in the 11th grade. I spoke to the students, after sharing my story, a teacher said to me “I don’t think you should be talking about your troubles, but what’s going on in your life now”. The obstacles, the struggles, everything that made you who you are should never be forgotten. IT’S NOT HOW YOU START, BUT HOW YOU PLAN TO FINISH. #KRTcares #inspire #akingsjourney #success #imaginecreateinspire #KingsInspireKings #Kingsruletogether #KRT
"Machines are worshipped because they are beautiful and valued because they confer power; they are hated because they are hideous and loathed because they impose slavery."
"For all the exotic ingredients, natural or otherwise, found in the The Futurist Cookbook, a rather common regional one is conspicuously absent. In the December 28, 1930 edition of the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta del Popolo, Marinetti and his associate Luigi Colombo (better known as “Fillia”) published a manifesto of Futurist cooking. In it they mounted a vicious attack on pasta. The stuff was inimical to the body assimilated to a world of steel, they wrote; it fills stomach without energizing the body, leaving the eater heavy, shapeless, and inducing in him “lassitude, pessimism, nostalgic inactivity and neutralism.” “An absurd Italian gastronomic religion,” pasta yoked the country to its backward condition. “The danger and disgrace of … this macaroni,” complains another Futurist, Marco Ramperti, “has made us the butt of indecorous metaphors beyond the Alps.” Ramperti goes on to insist that pasta is as toxic as it is disgraceful. “Swallowed down the way it is, spaghetti poisons us,” he writes. “Our thoughts wind round each other, get mixed up and tangled like the vermicelli we have taken in.” Those who would defend this farinaceous enemy of the people Ramperti likens to convicts serving life sentences and archaeologists carrying around ruins in their own guts."
