asian fever?!

asian fever?!...

".... private relationship between advertiser and viewer?!"
a call for response and reaction

Advertisers sell consumers to corporations.... usually by cultivating a sort of confidential relationship: We are
expected to FEEL but not to talk about our feelings with each other. We are expected to keep track of the
puns Tide laundry detergent can come up with etc.. all by ourselves. As long as we allow ourselves to be
isolated we allow ourselves to be intimidated. The pimps and the pushers count on it. It is always time to
respond and react. Let us not be separated and silenced by our genders, races, sexualities, etc.


Larry Flynt has invited me.. and you.. to the ASIAN FEVER beauty contest on October 3rd, 10th, and 17th at
8pm. On the 3rd, some anonymous volunteers scoped it out. The Hustler Casino dominates the
intersection of Vermont and Redondo Beach Blvd in Gardena like Disney Land or something. One of the
huge lighted signs flashes a rippling American flag like a flood light. Mr. Flynt himself is helped from a
limo and into his wheelchair and soon disappears into the 'casino' (how there can be a hugely advertised
casino in Gardena is unclear to us).

a group called acolectiv used the following strategy against the New Times, which we notice, is
imminently defunct: New Times advertises bloody carnivorous decadence in the guise of journalism --
acolectiv conducts guerrilla street theatre outside advertised venue.

Advertising works. but as long as we don't allow ourselves to be separated from one another, WE can decide
HOW advertising works. In many or most cases, we'd like it to work as follows: when sick corporations
advertise -- 1. the public makes their business a target of confrontational ridicule and eventual bankruptcy
2. publications like the New Times or LAWEEKLY give up their sick ads or else fold.


So..meet us at the intersection of Vermont and Redondo Beach Blvd the next two Thursdays, Oct. 10th and
Oct. 17th in the evening. Some feel that protest visibility may be higher before sundown - the 'contest'
starts at 8pm - we will be out there from 5pm to 9pm. Bring cameras, bring flashlights, bring banners and
signs.
