Extraordinary Discourse 082




Story, Story, Aleatory





This is an idea-generating jukebox/talkbox from the Edge. Songbirds select their music stands along forest edges, which means edges of roads or railway cuts or perhaps rivers as well as the edges of clearings, swamps, lakes etc. Burroughs said about text cut-ups, "cut into the present and the future spills out"… Another Burroughs wrote, “Down into Africa from the storied port of Alexandria, through Memphis and Thebae into the great unknown...”



Are you ready to move on to being cut up? Jump metaphors: These utterances  were planted for the wind to catch and flip up into spontaneous tableaux vivant, encounters, unexpected engagements: this is the domain and daimon of the funny, and a stretch and oxygen cocktail throughout the dimensions that rarely get together in organized, compartmentalized days: rarely a cross-sectional party, a head-to-toe visit or two, a hunker down in the riverbed with a mad hatter and a committee.
