"ToyLit Issues TimeShip Medusa Tome"

by Twist

“All we can do is remain present, because the future is too horrifying and the past is too embarrassing.” That’s a quote from James Mathers, aka ‘Toylit,” quoted in Dani Katz’s column in the latest LA Weekly. James has just completed the first installment of his graphic novel, "Prevenge of the Androgynous Cyborg Pyrates from the Future." It kicks off with a re-telling of the glory days at the Topanga Rodeo Grounds TAZ. More on Mr. Mathers at the Institute for ACausal Studies.

He told me about the movement he’s heading up (working title: The Crapture) and the manifesto he’s working on to unify a collective intention among local artists, thinkers, dreamers and weirdoes that would draw upon the brilliance of the Dadaists, who abandoned reason, the Cubists, who bent space, and Mathers’ own prescription for these mad times: “All we can do is remain present, because the future is too horrifying and the past is too embarrassing,” he said before pecking me on the cheek and dashing off to hustle a sale.
