a writing machine that shifts one half one text and half the other through a page frame on a conveyor --- the proportion of half one text half another is important corresponding as it does to the two halves of the human organism(shakespear, burroughs etc) permutating through page frames in constantly changing juxtaposition the machine spits out books,plays and poems, the spectators are invited to feed into the machine any pages of their own text in fifty-fifty juxtaposition with any author, any pages of their choice and get provided with results in a few minutes.    wsb(ticket)

I've just learned that there's a very good chance the visual will be in color, but time will tell for sure

John, There's a place to leave the author questions/comments at the link DVS posted.

I wonder if this new ed. of The Third Mind, etc. would include color plates of all the visual material that didn't make it into the original edition?

Hey, 'DV' thanks for the heads up! I left them a comment asking if one might subscribe to future comments on the book and letting them know I will wish to purchase a copy. YOB-f

Someone sent me this link to a new book that is being published of the writings of Brion Gysin & William S. Burroughs on the cut-up technique.

You probably won't find a better understanding of cut-up than going directly to Gysin & Burroughs. Included is an explanation of the difference between cut-up & DaDa methods.

Apparently this new volume includes a new printing of the book The Third Mind (1978) by Gysin & Burroughs, which originally fared very poorly and copies are hard to find. Of course it is now a classic. (Gysin only rarely visited the USA & was not well know in the states until after Burroughs' (final) return.) Anyway, looks like a good book.
