then he goes on:

AJ: (randomly inspired / taken and miswritten from his essay "to be and to live": monolog:

in the beginning was thought? or In the beginning was action? or fishing or bicycling>?


let us not introduce a third term, the Word, into the equation, for the word is only thought perceived, either by the person it inhabits, or by the passer-by of the exteriorised world.... interrupts and pauses: sees somebody coming;

camera shifts to passer by: Lenin

Lenin walks by with a piece of a bicycle. - front wheel, somehow lookikng dirty and fucked up. pants broken. etc.

AJ addressing Lenin: Qu'est ce que ce ca / what is going on with you?

Lenin: I was in a car accident. I was riding down hte street with my bicycle, a new deesse, and this huge dark car was crashing me

AJ: this is not nice, this also has happened to me nearly several times. (AJ pulling his guy) this is why I m carrying my gun and if somebody comes close I am pulling the trigger....

Lenin: mais nous, nous ouvrier, nous alons faire une revolution et leur voitures vont etre saisie / we worker, we are going to make a revolution and take away their cars and chop their heads off stuffing it into the trunk. pauses: before that I take the driver to court

AJ: meanwhile.. do you want a fish?

L: non, je viens de manger

AJ: what is your name?

L: Ullay Illyanowitch Lenin, russian revolutionary and your's

AJ: They call me UBU, pecheur, bicyclettist et pataphysician/ fisher, bicyclist and pataphyscian

L: pataquoi?/what pata/peche/ pata fish?

AJ: we are scientiests an invented our proper sciences ourselves , with guns, bicycles and fishing rods, our business is bursting.

Lenin: vive la revolution et la bicycle

AJ: taking some absinth : a tout ce qui roule .. he focuses on the fish adn something is hanigng ... some fish is biting

Lenin: you caught something

AJ: yes something is haning. For your revolutionaries: Hanging is better than the guillotine ((this part is taken from: visions of hte present and future)) permanently visible and more elegant: pictures the worm-eaten copreses in the gibbets after the crows have passed., and their own aerial navigation.

lenin leaving definitelhy: nous allons y pensez!

Lenin walks.. speaking to himself: this accident was definitly not as dramatic as the one i had last year in geneva.....
