Do you remember that time the KLF literally set fire to a million pounds in cash? Did they do it as a work of direct action against the Bank of England’s lax monetary policy? If so, did the British mint simply reprint the money rendering their protest pointless? Did they do a bad thing? Have you ever considered exactly how difficult it is to win a bad dancing competition and realised the parallel between that and a nation state successfully decoupling from the global business cycle? Do you actually think sex and money have anything to do with each other? I don’t, and do you remember that time the Department of Human Services sent out fraudulent Centrelink debt notices and over 2030 people died? Oh, you’re trans? We’re sorry. Your resume was great but we just feel you didn’t preform well in the job interview. SEX MONEY SUICIDE: a one man show.
