|I think that's a totally valid and interesting question, HunterWolf. This word "represent." I think that "represent" is one of those words that seems absolute, but is actually relative. E.g., the Statue of Liberty represents "freedom, liberty, equal opportunity" to you, HunterWolf, who lives in New York City. From the Dadaist's point of view, in Argentina, the Statue looks quite different; and that's a view that I'm interested in.|
I mean, I think that if more Americans would try to see themselves as the world sees them... argh, I'm not saying that 911 would never have happened. But I can't stand how so many Americans can't see at all how 911 could have happened.
So here is the Dadaist, who write a comic that --to me-- says, ARRGGH, Statue of Liberty, I hate it, I'm going to blow it up in my comic! And here he is, and I just think that this is a good opportunity to find out what that's about from him. On the relative safety of the page, if you know what I mean.
And you know, this doesn't strike me as too dissimilar from Jenny & pals jumping that coffee executive in the restroom. Fly's characterization is stronger & that probably helps. And actually, you know what I think startled me the most about Dadaist's comic that the little bomb that says "The End," because you know it's not the end. As Emma Frost would say, "And then what? Then what?"
