The Luvvery Interwebs
is a luvverly place indeed
One of my favourite sites is A Softer World
I signed up for the Notify List
and received this:
August 2nd 2007 marks the 10th anniversary of the death of William S. Burroughs. In honor of the occasion, Lawrence.com offers an excellent commemorative edition of interviews, memoirs, and articles commemorating Lawrence’s most famous man of letters. (Where else can you read an anecdote like this one by Mr. Grauerholz? “In 1974, I went to some of these classroom meetings at CCNY, a creative writing class. And one of the students asked him: ‘Mr. Burroughs, how does it feel to be a genius?’ And he said: ‘You get used to it.’
In commemoration of Burroughs, you might also want to read about the 1997 memorial service, Timothy Miller’s eulogy, and Jim McCrary’s Remembering William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg at George Laughead’s comprehensive Beats in Kansas.
I know it’s a little overdue, Parishioners,
but drop an Aspro&#trade; into your communion wine
and spare a thought for Wild Bull Lee
I shall be trawling these links until I am well sated.
