If you read everyone's comments here in the same voice as Burroughs, you`ll think anything anyone says is sound advice.

1:27 KITTEH!
Burroughs was a cat-lover! One of his last publications was a book about cats...

Cats, guns, heroin, booze, other drugs... he was a true Bohemian!

vv Dammit! I spelled "Junkie" wrongly... Oh, both spellings were used! Learn something new, eh?

The Cat Inside (1986)



Burroughs is in the crowd here too!

@VirtualParty: Burroughs was very innovative & creative! He'd write poems that sounded like stories and stories that sounded like poems (on purpose! lolz!) just to be weird.
Of course his dead-pan voice is uniquely well suited for him to read his own works... RiP, WSB!

@patchouly: You didn`t like the "hippy trippy" style music? I thought it suited the reading pretty well.

@spani: Good point: GOTO YOUTUBE to read the transcript, eh?

@Lordjim: I own all his books! I`ve even read half of them (pretty rare for me! mountains of un-read books fill my house). Junky is by far my favorite...

THANK YOU @FancyLad (or @The Mods) for fixing up my crap-tacular description. AND adding the NSFW warning too! I`m so used to Burroughs` swearing, it doesn`t even register...

And IAB-BOT sent me a "duplicate submission" e-mail = LM-F-AO!!
