Wunderkammer :: Musrum's Museum
First though, I believe its important to have an insight into Musrum’s world. Knowledge of the origins of Musrum and the formation of his personal universe that reached its zenith in the founding of the Museum in the Iron Castle and subsequently its Russian branch, the Museum of Sevastapol, allows us to better appreciate what a victory it is for MoD to devour it.
I mean, shelter its crumbled remnants under our aegis.
Musrum : Extracts from the Original Documents
¶There was little excuse for the invention of the name MUSRUM. It was already known in sixteen principalities and native states.* Quoted from: Eric Thacker and Anthony Earnshaw, Musrum, Jonathan Cape, London, 1968
¶There were, however, several religious reasons, but these are unlikely to become evident in what follows.
¶Musrum is terribly afraid of sponge-cats.
¶Keep your sponge-cats under control…
¶The kingdom of Intersol slopes down for a hundred miles through blue flax plantations to the sea and oblivion.
¶The Tran-Siberian Railway was established to facilitate the construction of the Far East.
¶Every hour, on the precise stroke, trains leave Moscow bearing Musrum and his relations in tears.
¶Gilvis wrote a Book of Life for the dead.
¶He is probably writing your biography at this moment.
¶A sponge-cat weeps after the Moscovite trains. Musrum also weeps, but in another room.
¶Sudden prayers make God jump.
