  • Thanks, Mike! Who knows when this movie will actually be finished, so it’s a nice opportunity to peek over my grimy shoulder. Showing some interesting material, incorporating a lost 1960s lengthy Burroughs reading from NOVA EXPRESS that hasn’t been heard in 40 years…

    with special guest supervillian Allen Ginsberg, plus Proctor and Bergman from the Firesign Theatre reading a few routines.
