It occured to me while creating this poster, that the young members of “Le Culte du Prochain Train” (Cult of the Next Train) are not dissimilar to the students at Enfield Tennis Academy. This is the path they have chosen to becoming men and women, and it may destroy or maim them before all is said and done.
It is suggested that John “No Relation” Wayne is a mole for the AFR, of which Le Culte du Prochain Train is a sort of training ground.
On Dan Schmidt’s “Notes on Infinite Jest” page I found an interesting tidbit about Wayne’s possible connection to “La Culte du Prochain Train”:
Geoffrey Day’s article on Les Assassins des Fautueils Rollents and Le Jeu du Prochain Train which Struck is plagiarizing says (p. 1060) “Far beyond prohibited, not to jump at all is regarded as impossible. To “perdre son coeur [lose one’s heart]” and not jump at all is outside le Jeu’s limit. The possibility simply does not exist. It is unthinkable. Only once, in le Jeu du Prochain Train’s extensive oral history, has a miner’s son not jumped, lost his heart and frozen, remaining on his jut as the round’s train passed. This player later drowned. “Perdre son coeur,” when it is mentioned at all, is known also as “Faire un Bernard Wayne,” in dubious honor of this lone unjumping asbestos miner’s son about whom little beyond his subsequent drowning in the Baskatong Reservoir is known, his name denoting a figure of ridicule and disgust among speakers of the Papineau region vulgate.” So the A.F.R. have some connection to the Wayne family. On p. 262 it is mentioned that Wayne’s father is an asbestos miner.
I can’t help but love these.
