Cut-Up and Automatic Writing by Douglas Lain

Cut-Up:  Jung vs. Freud

-Douglas Lain

In the CIA he’d helped mastermind the possibility of becoming aware.  For added comfort the practitioner of World Energy, in order to set the suave, pipe-smoking, cocktail-party-loving operative whose Cold domain was around every corner at ease he told the Journal that the analysts had been arguing in favor of caramel.

There’s one family on TV you can look up to.  For a universally flattering fit with such a high oil price that it led to murder of Che Guevara, choose to become its creator.  They exist in the context of a healing art.

The spymaster wrote down the names of men who plotted to kill the president.  We are not all content with the dominance of survival over life, and once you’ve made a selection from the main menu, in order to set the heads searching, find a treatment.  Search out a broad framework to provide a brief Eureka.  Money to fly because this is an activity that is never completed, an ongoing struggle, even after the institutions and inhabitants have listened carefully to the recorded instructions for further options.

Tear here.

Automatic Writing


“The error that is at the root of surrealism is the idea of the infinite wealth of the unconscious imagination.” –Guy Debord

The thing about automatic writing is that it springs directly from the mind at the fastest clip possible, which in the case of this monkey ain’t that fast.  Aspelling too goes out the window and the topic may drift this way and that…what is difficult to obtain is a disconnect from the mind and the words typed, perhaps using paper and pen while listening to music will be more effective? 

Billy Duffin is a name that is the basis for the future development of a meaning to carry the dead.  The dead are us and time is everything.  Everything is represented in pixels and they turn you on just enough to distract you from your decay.  All the bikni women loot the same, suck the same, but that’s the way you like.  All the fizz and bang on time and prepackaged.

80 years is just a passing light and the old men in their framed glasses and insect mosquito guitars live in cubicles.  Meat in glass tubing.  The game is over.
