Re: Mayan Codices

There was an interesting programme on UK TV a couple of weeks ago(channel 4 I think) about the latest finds in Mayan archaeology. They send a helicopter equipped with some type of laser scanning device over miles and miles of treetop canopies. This generated a 3D model of all manmade objects under t...

Re: Burroughs gets a statue

I quite like the statue. The sculptor said "It's very necessary to have the William Burroughs sculpture here because of what he did for the world intelligentsia," he said. "I believe his art is more important than his personality. St. Louis should be proud to have William Burroughs here." Don't thin...

I seen last week that Grant Hart from Husker Du died. I saw them over 30 years ago in Edinburgh and heard the odd record. They were great live but I didn't take much interest after that. Reading some of the recent memoriams(?) I see after splitting up he formed a band called Nova Mob and later on re...

Keefs bio

Just read Keith Richards autobiography which came out a few years ago. He mentions Burroughs a couple of times: 1967: "And from Algeciras, where we checked in as Count and Countess Castiglione, we took the ferry and the car over to Tangier to the El Minzah Hotel. There, in Tangier, were Robert Frase...

Re: Bradley the Buyer

Hi Alex, Heres my 2 cents worth: Why is Bradley called the "Buyer"? Is he "buying" trust to get information from the pushers etc. Bradley is an undercover narcotics agent. He tries to find dealers to buy heroin from. At first this would have been to arrest the dealers. What's about his contact habit...

I just watched an interesting animal documentary on the BBC. It concerned the brown and black lemurs of Madagascar. It turns out one of the things they enjoy eating are bright red millipedes. The lemurs were picking them off trees and biting them in half then sucking on them. The millipedes then rel...

Burroughs has gone insane

I just finished reading the Burroughs letters 1945-1959. I thoroughly enjoyed them and they give a great insight into his frame of mind in these years and his ideas of developement of Naked Lunch. Ive never been a big fan of Kerouac or Ginsberg but was wondering if there are similar letters books by...
