Vonnegut brought a zany yet scientific voice to life which pointed out the absurdities of modern life and warfare. I was inspired to embody him in a surrealist portrait on my artist’s blog which you can see at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/11/happy-birthday-mr-vonnegut.html
“I tell you, we are on earth to fart around and don’t let anybody tell you different”
Yeah, I bet you like that one. I do, too; I have a card with that quote glued into my journal.
Kurt had some pretty good ideas. I've never known whether or not to quite take him seriously!
