“Burroughs used the cut-ups to write beautiful poetry, or he would cut up his friends’ personalities and see what emerged. The cut-ups are the runway to the magic universe. Everybody should cut their lovers up for better sex. Everyone should get themselves CUT UP!” Victor Bockris, author of Transformer – The Lou Reed Story; Andy Warhol – The Biography
