Obscene Retail (in excruciating detail starring Crazy Rich Asians and others)

February 19, 2019

Here it comes obscene retail in obscene mob scene detail
a wannabe wafting wannabe dream drifting through mellifluous floating brick and mortar realms through and back through to a cyber otherworldly shmorgesbord ..

obscene retail starring crazy rich asians, fetishists high on being packed into Moncler, lovers mothers brothers and others

Cannot find Lagerfeld at the beach he is out of reach the kind of guy
to do a private island in Dubai..

On the brutalist bunkers top floor basketball court to test drive soccer boots here all red with price sticker constructs hanging off the sides for goal stinging striker kicks from Latin American teen boy tour groups hitting direct shots at video targets and moving up levels its high time for retro pinball pared down to just the basic bumpers and it takes a while to get hold of the body English to rack up the stacks of points going around on the odometer to only five figures and then…

I am in a fine art gallery to see works by a friend none of which I see though it might be a two person exhibit … I walk into a room where behind it is another room

Where though trying to avoid her I cannot I get called into it by the head gallerist perhaps and probably the owner and I advance and she motions that I only should come forward so far and asking where his works are she says she will show me and brings us to a big tank contraption and I say oh cyrogenic-suspension and she laughs but climbing in it ieads to a zip line elevator where you hang on by the top of a wine glass and fly down through a  multi-story department store past endless rows of empty cosmetic counters and I tell the lady this the best thing I have seen all day .. upon landing  i say you probably do not want to take that all the  time or some people might not want to take that all the time and then suddenly I am in conversation with an African American impresario inventor who is giving me a job in this crazy mall and tells .me the ride I just rode is his invention and just  about everything here is his all of it his work and that if I work for him would I mind having to listen to all he has acheived I say no I do as such all the time and he takes me to where I will be working in an arcade boardwalk indoor fun center individual game area and i see some familiar faces including Dora Espinosa who keeps saying hello Lee while I am trying to complete my interview and Norman Douglas and I say i I know some of  the people who work in this mall we all live nearby in the same area
