No, no it’s decontextualizing D’Corbusier. Not curing. [Embraces brutalism, makes speakers that can only play the first 10 Cure albums out of slip and CO2-breathing flow batteries (yeah, but they make methanol as storage media) and a RasPi2] Okay curing.

Cure-Damaged Cement! Float not here! [Scores curing cement] That stuff really absorbs, er quietly distorts sound okay.
