McGoon was writing a book
called Zombies in Paradise.
Or, simply, PARADISE.
It was about the commercialization of art
in the Mall Builder culture.† Public television
saying it was noncommercial.† Between the ads.
The permanent fund-drive format.† The incessant
preoccupation with money.† Itís tacky, boys.
Talking about money is tacky.
A gentleman doesnít talk
about money.† God gave it to him.
You donít want to know where it came from.
It doesnít bear scrutiny.
Who gave me the right
to write PARADISE?
Ha ha nobody.
I just did it.
