Aww. My sister bought me that book on Debord for my birthday. I think she saw 'revolution', 'poetry' and 'situationist' together in one place and thought she could do no wrong. I feel obliged to read it. At least there are pictures?!

Henry tha cat may be an asshole, but like, a gorgeous sultry one whose number you always come back to in your little black book. Or not, this time?

Hope all's well with you tou by the sea,
Francesca xx

surely she is referring to Henry's cat- ?

"Henry himself never appeared on screen; the name was an allusion to an earlier one-off Hayward/Godfrey collaboration, Henry 9 To 5 about a bowler-hatted commuter who escaped his boring everyday life by indulging in daydreams, mostly of a sexual nature. Henry's Cat shared the earlier character's tendency toward wild flights of fancy and laid-back approach to life. The name "Henry's Cat" was mostly an in-joke for those few people who remembered the earlier cartoon and did not mean that Henry's Cat had a "master", unseen or otherwise."
