(viz SYNCHRO obv)

yesterday wz the GOLDEN GOGGLES AWARD for swimmin pools good and bad (and shut down)

it wz presented in uber-classic synchro/performance art format: viz happened in an EMPTY SWIMMIN POOL DO YOU SEE! (step forward marshall street pool) where a CLOTHED DUNCAN GOODHEW DO YOU SEE! made announcements of winners and losers while his voice was LOST TO MIRROR-SURFACE CERAMIC ACOUSTICS DO YOU SEE! while the list he wz supposed to be readin from was LEFT SOMEWHERE ON A TAXI DO YOU SEE!

the politics of swimming are even more interesting than the politics of foopball bcz they involve THE DIALECTICS OF RISING UP OUT OF THE SEA and WHETHER WE WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPIER if we had (as some radically argue) STAYED THERE??!!
