Tony:

What're we fuckin commies.

Rhonda:

If the hat fits, wear it. (Rhonda screws around with her gizmo to show how easy it is to change hats.)

Me:

Interesting. That reminds of a Marx Brothers skit from Horse Feathers. (he shares the scene):

Rhonda:

Yeah. Yeah. That's how it works!

Tony:

Marxists? Pink hats? F*ck lateral thinking. Give me badabing badaboom any day.

Beautiful People: A Tool Box for Revolution (Teddy)

Teddy:

Well, I really liked that clip of the kids getting ready for the show. Cops and protesters. That's about it. I'm surprised Stanford didn't have some kind of horror experiment with it. Anyway, I'm bringing to the table Beautiful Trouble. It's a book and card set that, like the de Bono theory, has players getting ready to Occupy a space controlled by government or corporate interests -- could be Wall Street or Pentagon or the Flint Water Management Corporation headquarters in Detroit. (he shares the book and cards) I really like this stuff. Instant mobilization against anything oppressive. Taxes. Corporate excesses. Mind Control. Fake News. The best of the '60s and '70s -- the seriousness of a child at play, as Nietzsche put it -- revolution for the hell of it plus social media and stuff. The way OR Books describes it, Beautiful Trouble has "The best ideas of the front lines of creative activism, and puts them in your hands."

Tony:

More commies. When do I get to wear the black hat?
