Arthur Magazine Presents:
THE FIRST POPPY SEED SEE-IN
Saturday, March 7, 2009
124 Meserole Avenue
Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York
At the First Poppy Seed See-in we will gather together to look into what is called “the hidden dimension of the public sphere.”
For free distribution at the event will be the famous Poppy Seed Programmes: 200 pamphlets containing poppy seeds and illustrated by Michael Curtis Hilde with integral texts by Arthur “Weedeater” columnist/blogger Nance Klehm. Here’s an excerpt from her text:
“The hidden dimension of a public sphere is the sphere of imagination. How we locate disorder and remedy it is how we imagine our body and mind.”
Also available will be silkscreened prints of the Arthurdesh poster signed by artist Arik Roper. Posters are $5.
Come eat, drink, pick up poppies, talk and listen to records– support autonomous local businesses like Eat Records, haven to thinkers, practitioners, artists and free people alike– re-imagine, see-in.
Organized by michael curtis hilde.

Desh is a hindi suffix that denotes a sense of home or country. This special chapter of The Story literally themes as a benefit for the magazine, which in the current depression has been forced to go out of print and take it online. This is unacceptable to myself and many other Arthur readers, as Arthur is the only great American publication to currently be seeing print. The days of Rolling Stone are over, the high-era of rad zines has passed; Arthur stands alone as a sole halcyon of rugged American individualism and the timeless values associated with nature, consciousness, and evolution into higher human potential. Their struggle today is as much a part of The Story as the metaphysical concepts we’ve been discussing up to this point with the series, and we hope that this show will directly turn around real funds to get the mag back on earth.

The Story is happening all around us, made of TV molecules, lives, lies, dreams, perceptions. The Story, in and of itself, is an idea that encapsulates all that’s happening on the inner and outer plane, real and superreal, canny and uncanny: everything.
People’s music and lyrics tell it. The purpose of our happenings is to gather together and hear it. Whatever the narrative may be ~reality decides~
Only We perceive.
Every happening is a new chapter, every band tells the next sentence.
