REWRITING THE PRESS KIT FOR SUPREME GRINGPO TROLL KENNETH OF THE HOUSES WHITE AND MEDIOCRE, THE VERY PLAID ONE OF HIS NAME, KING OF THE TOTALLY NOT RACIST U.S. AMERICAN POETRY BROS AND BROETTES, FOUR STAR ADMIRAL OF THE DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THE RIGHT TO SELF-EXPRESSION, LIKE YOU KNOW THE DEFENDERS WHO DISAGREE WITH YOU BUT WILL DEFEND TO DEATH YOUR RIGHT TO BLAHBLAH WHATEVER, LORD OF THE WHITE GHOULS AND VULTURES, PROTECTOR OF THE NON-ACCOUNTABLE IVY LEAGUE
In the tradition of HBO’S Sex and the City, Woody Allen Inc & other gringpo, “Acclaimed” “artist” KG’s THOUSAND copy-and-pasted pages homage to New York City—a city with so many homages IT’S OVER IT AND OVER YOU AND WANTS YOU TO JUST FUCKEN LEAVE ALREADY
Renowned Gringpo Troll and One True Heir to Sauron KG had his interns collect a massive assortment of quotations about New York City in the twentieth century. This
kaleidoscopic montage from hundreds of sources is a literary adoration of printed and bound Tumblr regarding New York as the capital of the world, WOW THEY REALLY SAID THIS KALEIDOSCOPIC MONTAGE FROM HUNDREDS OF SOURCES IS A LITERARY ADORATION OF NEW YORK AS THE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and was inspired by Walter Benjamin’s (BASICALLY THE SAME PERSON OKAY) unfinished masterpiece, The Arcades Project (unfinished coffee table book masterpiece lollollollollololl) a compendium of quotations about nineteenth-century Paris. This authentically machine-reproduced Tumblr will retail for 49.95 USD.
Goldsmith’s interns bring together an immense archive of quotations about modern New York from mostly white novels, white histories, white newspapers, white memoirs, white letters, white advertisements and more unlikely white sources (don’t believe? we dare you to—what does Eunsong Kim call it? ROGUE COUNT. bibliography is online), all organized by an unnamed intern into capital “L”yrical according to KG and capital “P”hilosophical according to KG categories. The result is a “magisterial” and “poetic” (wait, is poetry dead and irrelevant or not?) Gringpo history of New York in the twentieth century, and an “extraordinary,” “one-of-a-kind” waste of paper experimental purchase for your guests to rest their coffees on: DO IT
“A “skyscraper”—if you know what I mean—of words—white literary, white journalistic, white poetic, and white prosaic—to celebrate and chronicle a white version of teeming Gotham. The title alludes to Walter Benjamin, and the conceit is to inherit his marxist, radical intellectual legitimacy lollollollollol … but really? cuz uh there is an excess of Caucasity here.”
“Kenneth Goldsmith is always ahead of the curve!” —Marjorie Perloff, author of Unoriginal Genius: Poetry by Other Means in the New Century HEY GUYS, IS IT TOO LATE TO GET MORE BLURBS?
