"What more can be said," says Aristotle Derringer III. "Their lives were ruined. Shattered. Like mine."



Excerpts:

LYNN, Frank
The inspired Frank Lynn was so tragically ahead of his time he was banned from the Electrician's Union for his theories on myoelectric variety ability systems detailed in his
(r)evolutionary paper, "Putting the Chi into Animated Prosthetics." He was so far ahead of his time that his ability to find a loophole resulted in modern performance art, Frank Lynn advertising his experiments as merely representational, "kind of real, but not really," thus permitting him to operate without a license. "The Colossus of New York" isn't about Frank Lynn, it is Frank Lynn. If success rests mainly in the eye of the beholder, it must be admitted that in his post-1958 form he recommended to acolytes they think twice before letting actors carry out subtle procedures. Though Lynn later betrayed his students by eschewing notions of semblance of appearance and converting to Roman Catholicism so he might receive the perfect and authentic eucharist (which effectively ended his performance career, the fullest potential of which he'd pretty well maxed out in "Colossus") artists such as Monika Tichacek-Damhuis (now planning a collaboration with Matmos) admit they owe more than a little to the visionary Lynn.

Lynn died in 1994, a man broken by the US government and the corporate establishment and their evil strategies.

THE COLOSSUS OF NEW YORK (1958) Paramount Pictures The main character is supposed to be a genius, yet he dies in the first 15 minutes by chasing his son's toy into the street, and getting hit by a truck. He was going to get the nobel peace prize, but he got hit by a truck. A $#@%^&*$@ TRUCK!!!!! Anyway, his dad is a brain surgeon, so he takes out his sons brain, and keeps it alive in a jar. He shows it to his OTHER son, who is an electronics expert. Together, they build a robot body for him, and put his brain in it. How could a brain surgeon and an electrician build such a poorly designed robot???! It's shoulders are about 10 feet apart, the head is huge, and it just looks CRAPPY!!!! Anyway, it can see, move and talk(although his voice is coherent about half the time. In one scene, he screams, sounding like a goat in a bug zapper, and his wife says that she thought she heard him. Oh yeah, the robot body gives him ESP, but he goes crazy? He finds his 10 year old son and claims to be "the friendliest giant you'll ever know? And he hypnotizes people? Catch this one on AMC periodically. Dave Sagehorn, sage@pcii.net

Superman (19xx - ? )
"The fatal truth about kryptonite is it's encryption," the drunk pseudo ex-reporter said, finishing off his 4th Purple Passion. He called for another and passed off his empty glass like so many used women. "Every single one of those movies, the comic books, all of it, encrypted, you know, secret, nothing to do with art or entertainment. None of us expected it to be absorbed into popular culture like it was; after a while I couldn't tell what was real life or *them*. Little boys running around spouting our most sensitive intelligence. It was creepy."

Clark Kent Hogan now says that he lives only in the minds of others, yet another man broken by the US government and the corporate establishment and their evil strategies.
