[Seven by Nine Squares home page] [Neoist Path]

One thing I definitely did invent

is Monty Cantsin, the open pop star. I did not do this alone, I did it in Portland, Oregon with the very first Monty Cantsin, a Lithunian puppet player named Maris Kundzins. Maris and I sent a card to Kantor in Montreal, You are Monty Cantsin, the open pop star. Well, I have to assert what Kantor did with this simple postcard belongs to history. The idea that people can share their identity is a very good one I think. My own understanding of Neoism is that is is about resolving contradictions by reinforcing them, putting personal agendas aside, though not always seeming to.
