This looks pretty cool – in celebration of William S. Burroughs’ hundredth birthday next month, there’s a big wingding doing down in Bloomington, Indiana. It’s going to include movies, a gallery of rare manuscripts, and talks from Lydia Lunch and Mark Hosler from Negativland. There’s also a costume ball. If I was female, I’d go as Joan Vollmer with a hole in the head. If I was still fat, I’d go as bloated, drunken Jack Kerouac and spew jingoistic babble at the hippies. Either way, sounds like a lot of fun.
