Yiyi Jambo

Dawn of the autumni paraguaiensis, 2009.
I and the brother alligator tamer writing from some place in Asuncionland dispatch to tutti the Globoland our triborder cartonero manifesto:

Good morning Wisconsinland! Halloooo Martians! What say the Yiyi's?

Books by Yiyi Jambo Cartonera have eyes, lips, nose, sex and legs, they speak for themselves like little posthuman animals, but… have no fear of books by Yiyi Jambo, they don't bite…

May Yiyi Jambo and the other cartoneras keep sprouting up from the manure of kows grazing at the border, from the economic krisis of imagination, from Kurepaland to Asuncionland, from Boliland to Perukaland, from Nerudaland to Mexicoland, from the wrekkage of the world, from any sorta place, to the world kapital of fiction on the azure shores of Ypakaraí Lake…

It's not necessary to keep plundering nature just to make art. Among the detritus abound cardboard and other remains for fueling the invisible mambo of the visible, for cartonerism to keep sprouting up without end and without repetition.

From Paraguayland to the a$$ of the world: impulsify cultures of cardboard: turn trash into objects of cultural-aesthetic value…

Not just hand-painted book covers that are never the same: paintings on cardboard, sculptures of cardboard, contemporary art on cardboard.

Spread the word on sudaka literature, spread the word on Amerindian poetiks, spread the word on triborder Portuguaranholism umía kuera.

Generate opportunities to work without bosses.

Stimulate reading and writing by means of the cardboard book.

Start international cardboard book fairs in Paraguayland.

Stick cardboard alligators up the a$$ of the Official $tory.

There's non lux at then end of the tunnel at the fin del mundo in the kunt of the bull, but there are great opportunities, life in prose and verse three-years-running without paying a cent.

Karnavalesque cardboard blocos overcoming the transnational crisis of imagination.

JAPIRO THE CRISIS!

Have no fear, don't shit yourself over the CRISIS!

Kolofull kardboard nirvanas in the midst of the commercial-ekologikal BLAH-BLAH-BLAH…

Down with the vogue of DEPRESSION and STRESS.

Play games knew games with cardboard.

Turn cardboard into books into life into art into bread.

10 Tymes the movement everywhere you look.

I LIKED THE PRINCESS OF THE SUKATA.

Markets parallel to the GREAT OPEN MARCKET and other alter places.

Invenshuns instead of copies and books of all shapes and sizes.

Free room and board bus and air bus so all the SUDAKA CARTONERA PUBISHERS can come and go from any place to any other place.

THE SEA ITSELF, JUST THE WAY YOU LIKE IT.

CRISES-SCENARIOS FOR KNEW TITLES HANDPAINTED BY THE ALLIGATOR TAMER AND THE ÑEMBYENSIS BROTHERS.

DEBUREAUCRATIZE PRACTICALLY USELESS AGILITIES.

The joy of cardboard is a fiction that exists.

EMPIRE OF DREAMS OR EMPIRE OF THE CRISIS OF IMAGINATION?

KUNTS AND A$$ES SATURATED WITH INFORMATIONS.

The week of love has begun in Paraguayland and they say it's the fortysomethings who get off the most.

Invent the cardboard book-dildo.

Invent ANTICRISIS OF IMAGINATION plans, of course mia nêga.

OTUTÚMA KARTONERA KARNIVAL IN THE MIDST OF THE TRIPLEBORDER MADNESS.

Cartonera books walk on their own two legs on the wave to the ESCOLA DE SAMBA on Palma street through Post-Hystory.

Kontraband into the Vatikan and the rest of Globoland the sincerely sincere kisssses that not even the loverboys and priciest hookers from the Sãopaulandese River will sell...

SELVATIK GLOSSARY

JAPIRO LA CRISIS!: Fuck the crisis!
Umía kuera: Em general.
SUKATA: Detritos.
OTUTÚMA: Yes! It moves, it jumps, it flies...
