The Last Words of Hassan i Sabbah | Burroughs


Okay. Another video from William S. Burroughs. But look here: NSFW.

This is an example of the cut-up technique developed by Brion Gysin and perfected by Burroughs.

It does not necessarily make complete sense. But it is very cool.

And it is a great example of where the notion of a Society of Control arises in Burroughs thinking.

Thanks to my buddy Ian for posting this originally on my Facebook wall.
