Is that during his Language is a virus from outer space tour?

Bubs said...

That's the work of one of your countrymen Dale--David Cronenberg. I think that's from the set of Naked Lunch.

At least, I hope it is.

Dale said...

Yes, but isn't that William S. Burroughs shaking there?

Bubs said...

Yes. It is. He's obviously embracing his hallucination.

Dale said...

Language is a virus from outer space was one of those quotes that Laurie Anderson turned into a song. I likes me some Laurie but I found old Bill a tough read.

Bubs said...

Oh yeah. Some of it's real tough going. Try "Junkie", which he wrote under a pseudonym. I have a signed paperback copy of that one.

"Cities of the Red Night" was pretty linear too.

If you ever find a copy of a record called "You're the Guy I want to spend my money with" get it. It's Burroughs, Laurie Anderson and John Giorno, and it's got some great stuff on it.

I've heard of that now that you mention it. I see the LP is on eBay but I've no record player. I'll have to see if I can find mp3s of it somewhere.

The autographed book sounds cool. No junkie sweat on it is there?
