Frank Olive Were The Hell Are You — 1995 First Retroconsumerist Conversations

12:10AM
College — SCAD — first quarter freshman year... Schaefer and Olive begin in depth converstions about the current state of art. New concepts and idioms in the arts are conceived, among them Annihilationism, Abandonism, Noughtism and Retroconsumerism. These topics are discussed late into the nights at great length.
Before the first quarter ends, Schaefer and Olive have decided they are bothered and disconcerted with the ciriculum and student body SCAD has to offer. Both artists agree they need to go to schools that will stimulate their intelects. Both attempt to reapply to schools in which they were accepted but turned down. Schaefer reapplies to the Cooper Union in New York City. Olive reapplies to UMASS. Schaefer this time is rejected and remains at SCAD while Olive leaves for the second quarter at UMASS.
Neither see each other again and the revolutionary discussions they engaged in thus cease.



ROCK THE CASBAH — The Clash
Now the king told the boogy man
You''ll have to let that dragon drown


I JUST NEED MYSELF — The Cure
I know that I don't love you but I tell you that I do
But I only buy you flowers if I want something from you
You say that if you'll leave me it will put me on a shelf
But I don't need you girl
I just need myself
I just need myself

You trust in all my lies
You believe me when I see
That I'll be with you forever
So you let me have my way
I say "you can be my baby"
And I'll lavish you with wealth
But I'll make it that I leave you
'Cause I just need myself.
I just need myself
I just need
