YIPPIE!!!

I remember one time, some time ago, when Spike&Mike came through town (back when it was just the normal festival, with the occasional after-midnight shows being the sick&twisted version), there was a particular piece that struck me and has stuck with me since then. It was a mostly black/white piece -- done in a somewhat sketchy/glitchy style of animation, and the soundtrack was a piece read by William S Burroughs.

I finally found a copy of that track on CD this weekend. What's even better is I didn't even notice I had it till now, when reading the track listing for this specific CD (purchased simply for Burroughs' name on it) and I see it. There amidst various names unknown is that one precious gem, "Ah Pook the Destroyer/Brion Gysin's All-Purpose Bedtime Story".

I am a very happy man right now.

Is that the one with the baby and crib and evil giraffe monster that was trying to kill it?

don't think so, though it could have been. All I really remember was some sort of large animal (elephant, giraffe, can't say) moving around a planet of trash. I've been wanting a copy of the animated short since then.

and the line "death needs time for what it kills to grow in, for ah pook's sweet sake, you stupid vulgar greedy ugly American death-suckers". that is so beautiful..

i am so jealous right now. I have found bits and pieces of the original texts from that animated bit but lusted for the actual narration. ixta, goddess of ropes and snares.

There were multiple copies of it where I got it. Check The Beat, in the discounted new CD baskets near the counter (I belive they are Universal Media CDs). William S. Burroughs Dead City Radio. Not only Ah Pook, but also a few other pieces. All him reading beautifully twisted words in his wonderfully lazy drawn-out way, with random music in the background. Good stuff (if you like his voice) for only 9 bucks.
