11-8-08 Brooklyn, New York. While reading "How to Disagree Without Being Disagreeable" out loud, two performers sit still and alert, dressed as goats. One commences reading while the other eats vegetables. Nearby, text from The Anarchist’s Cookbook playing on a monitor, contrasting ominously with their polite reading. Time-lapsed plants grow and eventually the mood changes as goat #2 starts to spits out vegetables. The change to eery music emphasizes the words of a Molotov cocktail recipe. This was performed as a part of the Labyrinth, during the Bushwick BETA Spaces Art Festival of 2008.
