images-1Dipping into Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi. Godfather to Pere Ubu (the band), and Ubuweb. Can only find in French at Project Gutenberg. Which is not a problem, I can read French! Uhmm, yes. mm. yes. Reading for gist. Good practice. Alfred Jarry, father of pataphysics, proto-father of surrealists, and all other other -ists that came up at same time, and later (some of which). Small guy on a bike with a gun. Sort of like a 19th c. version of Hunter S. Thompson (well, mainly the bike and gun part).


(Wanted to, tried to, leave the S. out from Mr. Thompson’s name, but somehow just couldn’t).

Alfred Jarry: 19th c. Kenny G., but without the glamorous white rabbit fur coat.
