"Hopefully transformative 'use' of Proust, Duchamp, Beckett, Cage. How it is is what it is." -P.G. 1972.

"UDF explored the problem of simultaneous function of two distinct language forms which draws attention to the fallacy of assuming that communication occurs during the process of sympathetic involvement common to the technique of the commercial movie.
