The Greatness Of The Magnificence

This series of events was created in 2000 by Jesse d Vernon and a heavenly host of helpers. The idea is that any creative idea is possible, regardless of resources so let’s aim for the highest in quality, good taste, subtlty, irony etc and the result can’t fail to be The Greatness Of The Magnificence (even if it’s also quite rubbish).

Here’s a quote from a song by The Moonflowers called The World’s Most Famous Unknown People which illustrates the concept quite nicely:

“The Worlds most famous Unknown People
In these progressively backward times
Carelessly precious with dreams that are real
More brilliantly crap than anything else”
