Who the hell is Rockinghorse? And what's with
the Dada Disco? Well, usually I'd say mind yer own bee's-wax, but since
people so seldom ask, and I'm so desperately lonely, I'll answer.
Rockinghorse is Becca, the lesser half
of Raddittzu's Anime Playground. The Playground was around way before I
wandered in, so I'm a new element. Rockinghorse is the translation of the
French word "dada", which refers to the art movement, Dadaism. Such artist
as Salvador Dali, Man Ray and Dorthea Tanning made this an 'unreality'.
Dada literally was meant to tear down the perceptions, to see that nothing
is as it is. I won't beleaguer you with more details that that, other
than to say I have never seen things as anyone else. Disco, of course,
is a much lauded portion of the gaudy 70's. I love the 70's. It was ugly,
loud and fluorescent. Who wouldn't enjoy that? So that's it folks.
A very vague explanation for something significant only to myself. So what
on earth do you do, Rockinghorse? Well, I hide. I live out as far
as I can and avoid contact with all but 'my people'. Not that I don't like
people, I just like animals better. They don't hassle me as much.
And they never borrow money. I am small and inoffensive, but I cuss like
Popeye. I run an animal shelter and go in the hole on feed every
month, so buy our stuff!!!! (shameless, plug, I know). At this moment I
have no more room for anymore animals aside from cats or small dogs, and
the llamas desperately need a barn. They glare at me and plot. I can tell.
There are 8 potbelly pigs who run the joint and I envision making hamhocks
of them. Won't someone take them away? I had a cat named 3D Buffalo
Clotheshanger. I miss him. I want to paint my room bright blue and
lime green, but who has the time? I read William S Burroughs and he makes
sense. Why gravity? To me, rubber bands are meant to shoot at people, not
bind together your bills. The best bill is Bill Shatner. I like to
play with action figures. I prefer villains. I make airplanes noises
when I run. I forgot to vote against Bush, so this mess isn't *my* fault.
Quite often I sing Calypso songs and pretend to be Belafonte. Turtles are
my favourites, because they can always go home, even if they don't have
a ride. Inhale deeply. I wish someone would make a really good
cheesecake mix. And when will they ever put on new episodes of Space
Ghost Coast to Coast? Give me slack or kill me. Or don't. I used
to be an illustrator. Now I am not. I used to be in advertising.
I have a lot to amend for. I believe some ghud made the world then forgot
us. Just like that hermit crab I got and he crawled off but I didn't look
hard enough for him because he never resurfaced. I think naked people
are funny. You know more about me now than was ever necessary. This is
a run-on paragraph. Elvis has left the building. We will now deconstruct
your dog. Hail Eris.
