what makes me tick

My afternoon plans were ruined by Gnapppo, who redirected me to this archive of contemporary art sound and video files. Am currently downloading the video(?) of John Cage's 4'33''.

All this brought me to some reflections, such as:
Should we define a surrealist to be anyone who proclaims himself as such, or just anyone who Breton considered a surrealist? In the second case, we would have to study Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin as surrealists. And not Salvador Dalì.
My realization of this made me do the happy dance around my room, and proceed to change my study schedule even more.
