Kafka's Metamorphasis

Post by koan »

To my shame (or not), my introduction to this work of art was Cronenberg's Naked Lunch, wherein the following exchange takes place:

"It's a very literary high"

"What do you mean?"

"It's a Kafka high... it makes you feel like a bug."

(Joan Cusack is one of the sexiest women on the planet, imo)

I then read the short story by Kafka and spent the next 24 hours thinking "wtf?" "that was the stupidest thing I've ever read." Then, suddenly, I thought "omg" "how do I contain how brilliant that was?"

Some times you feel like a bug, sometimes you don't.

"I'm on bug powder. I don't need to come."
