William Burroughs shooting William Shakespeare

Passed on to us by our good friends at the Club de Lectura Biblioteca Les Corts Miquel Llongueras, a 1995 video of author William S. Burroughs shooting at (a portrait of) William Shakespeare.

It’s not really clear why he would want to do this, but then again, many people have struggled to understand this author of the Beat Generation, famous among other works for his “cut-ups” both with spoken and printed word. On YouTube, you can also find him playing a cameo in the movie Drugstore Cowboy, alongside Matt Dillon, in a video with U2 and as part of a Nike commercial.

Strange Random William S. Burroughs Quote:

After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say ‘I want to see the manager.’
