GG Allin, William S Burroughs reader.

Fucking believe this if you will. Not cunt-and-pasting a quote out of it; read the whole fucking offensive and deranged interview. :shock:

Death as Photographic Art.

Hope I never get assassinated in an art gallery, and have my death reviewed like an event.

Trump After Inauguration.

Why does this suddenly seem very, very familiar? 'Roosevelt After Inauguration: Immediately after the inauguration Roosevelt appeared on the White House balcony, dressed in the purple robes of a Roman Emperor and leading a blind, toothless lion on a gold chain, hog-called his constituents to come an...

Re: Anything but the word.

He was more about communicating through images without talking, really, so posting this here was just really examples of non-verbal communication.

Anything but the word.

Examples of communication without words in Naked Lunch, a la Korzybski. Just a random observation. 'Bulletins from Party Headquarters are spelled out in obscene charades by hebephrenics and Latahs and apes. Sollubis fart code, Negroes open and shut mouth to flash messages on gold teeth, Arab rioters...

'Robert Christie knew the answer...'

Was just looking at the old thread on the Turkish Naked Lunch. Years ago, RS is talking about not knowing who 'Robert Christie' is in the book. It is clearly the guy whose Wiki page I link to below; WSB probably just recalled his name wrongly. Name Christie, mass strangler of women, pubic hair colle...

Re: Has anyone seen the movie or read the book of Crash by J.G. Ballard?

The Unlimited Dream Company is a fucking excellent JGB novel. The collected interviews are good, and the RE/Search books too. Always liked JGB more as a thinker than a writer, mostly, to be honest.

Re: Has anyone seen the movie or read the book of Crash by J.G. Ballard?

I've read it. Cold, psychopathic (on purpose), difficult going. What about it? WSB and JGB have Rimbaud in common, and it shows through in Crash. Did you read the excellent piece on their relationship on this site? If not, I'll be kind to you and save you looking for a link: http://realitystudio.org...
