In a capitalist system, a corporation’s primary purpose is to create value for shareholders.
On roller coaster streets that dive into mist shrouded hills crusted like barnacles with candy colored houses, a one armed guitarist distorts rivers of sound that paints the walls of the old poet’s shop, made weird and etherial it bleeds across the boundary between worlds and above helicopters watch drones play in the park. A wrong turn takes you to an arterial hub of vegetable delivery trucks in insectile ranks, dress white and at attention flanked by forgotten industrial machinery. In the valley the code of pimply faced boys mutates through the real estate like an entitled virus and climate-controlled garages keep self-driving cars waiting for their oncoming disruption. San Francisco is a science fantasy city.
I was a teenager in the mid-to-late-90s, and I’m thinking now about how there were three pieces of culture that came out then that came to define my thinking about what culture should be like: Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994), David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest (1996) and Radiohead’s OK Computer (1997).
I think all of these works were part of a similar cultural zeitgeist that looked backwards as well as forwards, high as well as low, and embraced cleverness as high value proposition.

It’s not a bad idea. Perhaps a release party for Eruditorum Volume 5. Anyone have suggestions where to hold such a shindig?
Forbidden Planet, The Strand, Midtown Comics.
These seem perhaps bigger than is entirely sensible. I mean, they’re not stores that stock Eruditorum in the first place. I was thinking something more casual/restauranty. Wasn’t there a bar that did a big party for Day of the Doctor? That might be sane.
That’s The Way Station bar in Brooklyn, which has a TARDIS bathroom. Most logical choice for such an event. I know the owner if you want me to contact him.
