Reports from the Bibliographic Bunker
Jed Birmingham on William S. Burroughs Collecting
As is documented on the Bibliographic Bunker and on RealityStudio generally, William Burroughs was a master at manipulating multiple forms of media. From movies to magazines, photography to painting, Burroughs seemingly had his hand in, and touched on, just about every form of expression. The Bunker clearly lacks Burroughs’ promiscuity. True, I dabbled in a small range of options from audiovisual to zines but the opportunities are endless and my investigations into alternative media have been rather limited. Well, the time has come to fuck around with podcasting. Everybody else is doing it; let’s see if I can get lucky.
I refer you all to the opening statement of the Bunker from roughly a decade ago to get an idea of what the Bunker is all about. In general the song remains the same but maybe just maybe I can bust out a new move or two. Care to dance? The first podcast is ready for your listening pleasure. À la Buckley not Burroughs, hipsters, flipsters and finger poppin’ daddies, knock me your lobes and let me know what you think.
