Reviewing #DAASlive

November 4, 2017


<Not a reunion>

Missing one of their set, Flacco
adopted the third man position like
a curtain pleat.

DAAS are incompleat.

Not PC, not
winsomely youthful, not
stopping, not nice, not
clean or simple. Not best
manners & not
afternoon tea malarkey with proper serviettes and sponge cake on a tablecloth with your dear old gran who minds those p’s and q’s and c’s (oh, Paul.
Did you really need to club the
cripple with that one?). Wrong, yes,
awkward, given, cringeworthy, amen.


Yes. Some things

This mob are still ribald
malcontented miscreants playing
jester fool pugnacious Puck iconoclast thorn

the édu flâneuse

"For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate observer, it's an immense pleasure to take up residence in multiplicity, in whatever is seething, moving, evanescent and infinite: you're not at home, but you feel at home everywhere, you're at the centre of everything yet you remain hidden from everybody." Baudelaire
