Re: 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: https://web.archive.org/web/20071210210355/http://www.geocities.com/ekx001/MG/CMMG.html Thanks for this! Always good to see other GG fans on the interweb :lol:

Re: Burroughs predicting the Kennedy Assassination?

That's pretty cool. But we can't confirm it was actually in the "original" Word Hoard?

"The only thing not prerecorded..."

"in a prerecorded universe are the prerecordings themselves." or the full quote: Changes... can only be effected by alterations in the original. The only thing not prerecorded in a prerecorded universe are the prerecordings themselves. The copies can only repeat themselves word for word. A virus is...

Re: 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 rioter...

Re: Magazines and periodicals

Tor, Harold Norse magazine BASTARD ANGEL is a good place. Only 3 issues produced but for the times the printing standards were good. They might be found for maybe £40 (or $60 USA) maybe. Lots of Beats in those. Kerouac, Burroughs, Bukowski even and loads more. In England from the 1960s Tom Raworths...

Re: Beat exhibit at Centre Pompidou

i loved the whole thing - there were a lot of very stimulating spaces .. not least of which was Giorno's Dial a Poet environment and the recreation of a Beat Hotel bedsit, complete with a dreammachine, brass bed and 'armoire' (this last item looking a bit too modern.. you'ld have thought it would n...

Re: Beat exhibit at Centre Pompidou

A purist, eh? I get what you mean. People wearing Che Guevera t-shirts etc. Though I would place myself in both camps, sans gif memes etc, as I both consider Burroughs a master and yet whom I would probably go hysterical if I were to see on the street (I mean when he was alive obviously). That was t...

Re: Beat exhibit at Centre Pompidou

Well, wouldn't call it detailed exactly ... just some impressions. On a side note, too bad your girl didn't like it — I'm glad to report my wife actually liked the exhibition despite not being all too familiar with any of the stuff (except for the Burroughs/Gysin stuff I tend to ramble on about eve...

Re: Beat exhibit at Centre Pompidou

Yes, a very nice exhibition indeed — I was there last Sunday myself. I share your opinion on some things seeming a bit filler ... Particularly, I found the three pieces by (co-curator) Jean-Jacques Lebel a bit unwarranted ... Egos must be fed, I suppose. But certainly amid the (minor) controversy a...

Re: The Initial Burroughs Fascination

Once William was named Old Bull Lee. Right around the book i became aware of Burroughs. After that: Junky, a heavy dosage of cut-ups under the influence, Cities of the Red Night, Yagé and Naked Lunch. All of this in one continuous obsession. Fueling my writing, philosophy and overall approach to ev...

Re: Beat exhibit at Centre Pompidou

They also had a library you could peruse. Finally got to browse "The Secret Fascination", made me want to read it even more. Just hoping someone is selling it used to a fair price at amazon soon.

Issues of Unmuzzled OX?

Does anyone here own any copies of Unmuzzled OX? There is one, the infamous one, on ebay, but with shipping the price is a whopper.
I'm sure the Mr. Realitystudio has some, but for us mere mortals I'm hoping some kind souls uploaded some pdf's somewhere...
