Gentle Reader, The Word will leap on you with leopard man iron claws, it will cut off fingers and toes like an opportunist land crab, it will coil round your thighs like a bushmaster and inject a shot glass of rancid ectoplasm. -- WSB
Beat artist Byron Gysin correctly observed that writing is years behind painting, when it comes to expressing human emotion and experience. Very little writing really can really capture a moment like painting does. Lovecraft knew this. Bangs knew this. And William S Burroughs especially knew this. And together with Gysin, they created a new tool for the modern writer and journalist- the cutup.
The cutup is a mechanical method of juxtaposition in which a writer literally
cuts up passages of prose by himself and/or other writers and then pastes them
back together at random.
The results can be astounding, of black magic in general, and they have in- to

in- magic and cutup is usually done, by taking the text, cutting up
words or phrases, throwing the whole lot into a paper bag, and
pasting what you pull out of the paper bag on to a sheet of paper.
Personally, as much as I love the craft, its a lot of work and a bit
costly. Fortunatly, some fans of Burroughs have seen fit to build an
automatic cutup engine that will do all the dirty work for you. tors face
