They started speaking about me in the past tense. “Avida,” they called me, “Avida Dollars.” No more invitations came in to participate in their special hang-outs or whatever they called their blahblahblah all-talk-no-action conferences. I guess if you don't count their literal knockdown drag-out fight at the Champs-Elysee Theater over who gets to call themselves surreal as action. I don't have time for that bullshit. Maybe if they spent half as much time creating something as they do blabbing about who is more real of a surrealist, then they would have really accomplished something. Nobody will care about how “dedicated to the cause” you are unless they've heard of you in the first place. Well, that's where our differences drove us apart I suppose. In any case I kind of like my new nickname. Avida Dollars really rolls off the tongue. Maybe I should think about rebranding. [Jackson McHugh]
