Sensacao Do Principio

Let’s say you snort a line’ve old fashioned mescaline off the ass of PK Dick; the euphoria is immediately transportable to an oozing discotheque shimmering in the glitter of C-Beams. Watch as Precog’s bubble & melt. Who needs them anyway? It’s the 21st Century, so no smoking! Besides, everyone’s telling their cigarettes to shut up nowadays, I mean, IN THE FUTURE. Perky Pat Layouts might promise eternal life, but they’re gonna need a soundtrack to sell it. What could be more suitable than Sensacao Do Principio’?

When Abraham entering Egypt says, “I know that my wife is beautiful to behold,” the image of the heavy-set and coarse-featured Sarah may make us think twice about the accuracy of this judgment, though of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I would guess that the graphic image might actually correspond to the artist’s feminine ideal.
