Heck, I still love the Prunes. I was so excited to hear they were playing a show in NYC last year that I started to make plans...until a friend hip to these things told me the band should be billed as the Electric Prune.

But back on topic. I remember being harrassed by people many years ago about how I *had* to read Last Exit to Brooklynn. I finally broke down and took the plunge. I didn't think it was that bad, good enough to keep reading until I got to the really good part. But the end came before I got there. Perhaps Requiem for a Dream is better. I loved the movie.

I think we will always be able to wear Bill Burroughs t-shirts with pride. No matter how badly the experimental stuff ages, there's always Junkie.
