Surrealism is Back!

Or so says The London Times, detailing various surrealist fashion designers, musicians, and department stores in example.

You gotta love a girl who describes her look as "Bassett’s Liquorice Allsort meets Josephine Baker”! And her music--she rocks out with sitar! Super cool.

Sometimes life today seems inherently dada; how refreshing to get a good dose of dada, by design. It's comforting to know that sometimes things don't make sense on purpose. Makes the random senselessness a bit easier to bear. You think?

I love when dada spills into the everyday; except when I decide to drink some water from a urinal.

Now that would be Dada in the extreme! And while we are on the topic of Dada, I'd like to shill Daniel Pinkwater's Young Adult Novel , the only Dadaesque YA book that I know of. Alas, it's out of print (grrr), but it's worth hunting up a copy, for here shines the Master at his finest.
