<table><tr><td>​The psychological exhaustion of living under capital’s all-encompassing hand is not only intensely depressing, it’s socially depraving.

Most aren’t even friends, the war between shifts and stubborn high school personalities put us against each other.

We write letters, hold "benefit shows" and "express solidarity".

Since the metropolis acts as the materialization of our daily misery we find it is necessary to explore the limitless possibilities within our grasp to aid us in the re appropriation of the totality of our lives. We are not social scientists; what interests us is the “impossible”.
