Public Relations response to person who commented on Clifford Irving video


This was just sent to me from Bobby 'Words' VanderDutch at the Plaza of the Mind
PR department:


My twin brother 'Scoop' tipped me off to what a viewer at YouTube posted on your channel concerning your Clifford Irving movie:

weird. lame. why post such a non-response?

So's I sent her the following explanation:

The Plaza of the Mind is an avant-garde think tank built around the inner-workings of artist Kurt Weller. Mr. Weller's writings, images, as well as his videos have no basis in ordinary reality. Rather, these films are made simply because they need to be made and so they are made - this one, I believe, Mr. Weller filed under 'Sketch Document', and was meant to detail his ongoing struggle to implement the Plaza of the Mind's Public Outreach program. He found Clifford Irving's experiences to be quite interesting and thought he would make a good candidate for an interview at the Plaza. He was unaware that a film had already been made concerning Mr. Irving's experiences.

The Plaza of the Mind has been working closely with the Paramedia Ecologist Bob Dobbs on an interview project. His take on what Mr. Weller is attempting to do here may help fill in some of the confusion concerning this 'non-response'.

"Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object."
-Bob Dobbs

I hope this clears up some of the confusion.
