I am a few days late in wishing happy birthday to DADA, but missing the exact date kinda seems appropriate...

"DADA was born on the 8th of February, 1916, at a Café in Zurich by the slippery hand of Tristan Tzara, despite any malicious claims to the contrary made by the intelligent but foul-smelling André Breton, that green-eyed Pope of Surrealism, which, incidentally, is very much NOT DADA, especially in that it advocated descending into the streets with a revolver in each hand and shooting people at random."

- from "Tristan Tzara's Eighth Symphony: or How Dada came to me in the form of this self-contained manifesto"
