Dear World:

We’d like to invite you to our show because we need to re-educate you about The Situation, specifically, or perhaps more generally speaking,the issues of right and wrong, because “right” now, you’ve got it all WRONG.

Some things that are wrong:

1.     A certain type of man of which there are many, all of whom rule the world and torture—literally—us, for no reason (see our travelbrochure/exposé Stoning for Pleasure and Profit in Many Countries)and all that really needs to happen is your wives roll over and stab you in their sleep, problemo solved!

2.      Wake up! Machines are needy little takers.

3.      The Lack of Sleep/Christmas/Corn Syrup Chain of Signifiers/Absence of Leisure Time To Make Art and Write etc./OurEducational Cultural Indoctrination System Which Turns LumpenDull-Witted Three-Year-Olds Into Massive Raving Homo-Bashing TumorsStewing In Hot Tubs On Their Own TV Shows/Axis of Evil. We’re ALL TheBiggest Losers.

4.      The military-industrial-pharmaceutical-artworld complex

5.      Animals in captivity, including the loss of all carbon-based life forms

6.      Domino effect, Chinese accordion, string pulled on sweater, Russiannesting dolls

7.      Plastics & pesticides (in your tits!)

8.      The greater the massacre, the bigger the Xmas bonus

9.      Unending Ice Capades of Destruction

10.     Everyone’s desire to be happier than everyone else’s desire to be happy

For these reasons and more, you, World, really need to come visit usin 300 square feet of luxurious, non-denominational, nonlinear,spa-like atmospherics of the gallery Invisible-Exports (that’s the name of the gallery). Your visit will be rewarded by mind-expansion and tax cuts for the rich. BYOR! (Bring Your Own Road!)

Your BFF 4-Ever,


P.S. Our show is called Readykeulous: The Hostile Healer (The Correspondance Issue) because we have chosen at this point in time to highlight our letter-writing skill-set.
