#1336: 1938

it is 1938.

the england football team have just saluted the nazi leadership before a match in berlin.

it was suggested by the chief of the F.A. & - being working class - the impassioned elbows automaticed as window wipes.

mickey mouse has subtly softened from the sharp-toothed, brawny, violent creature he was before, to a provider: offering escapism through magic & nature looped to the lymph-nodes of classical music.

from now on - until the advent of punk - there will be far less for the working class to associate with.
