William S. Burroughs

Today is one of my favorite days in literary history: the day that Uncle Bill Burroughs came to planet earth; February 5th, 1914.
“We can console ourselves with the Buddhist admonition
that nothing is more stultifying than safety…”
“Salutations to all my relations, that is all who can relate to me
and those to whom I relate.”
And of course;
“LOVE? What is it? Most natural painkiller what there is. Love.”
Dearest Uncle Bill…
I related from the very first sentence right to the last.
—- William S. Burroughs, February 5th 1914 – August 2nd 1997

Patreon: Deleted

THE NAKED BLONDE WRITER‘S PATREON ACCOUNT HAS BEEN DELETED AS OF FEBRUARY 1ST, 2019. VARIOUS REASONS FOR LEAVING PATREON INCLUDE THE DIFFICULTIES OF POSTING CONTENT WHICH IMPLY NUDITY (PATREON PROTESTED AGAINST POSTS WHICH SPOKE OF ‘THE NAKED READING’ RATHER THAN ACTUAL NUDITY, PATREON DISABLED THE ACCOUNT BECAUSE OF A PHOTOGRAPH WHICH IMPLIED A NAKED FEMALE BODY, EVEN THOUGH THAT BODY WAS OBSCURED BY A BOOK), THE FACT THAT PATREON WAS AN EXPERIMENT WHICH DID NOT WORK WELL BECAUSE TNBW DOES NOT PRODUCE REGULAR WORK QUICKLY ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY THE MAINTENANCE REQUIRED TO BE A PATREON CREATOR AND – MOST IMPORTANTLY –

Patreon’s recent removal of
Sargon of Akkad’s account…

While TNBW may not agree with everything S.o.A says, the manner in which Sargon’s account was disabled smacks of Orwellian Thought Police… the slow, gradual murder of Free Speech is underway and while it does not yet affect TNBW too much, she cannot  continue to be a part of an organisation which has used Big Brother-1984 type tactics to silence someone so wonderfully articulate in the art of Free Speech… Free Speech is one of the most important elements under threat today… And so the Patreon account must go… Meanwhile, YouTube continues to remain impenetrable: TNBW’s account was at first ‘suspended’ and at least 7 videos removed… 3 Videos remain but TNBW cannot sign in or do anything with her own videos… YouTube have recently claimed that the account is ‘lost’ …

ALL TNBW’S STORIES/AUDIO AND VIDEO FORMERLY UPLOADED TO PATREON WILL SHORTLY BECOME AVAILABLE DIRECTLY THROUGH THIS WEBSITE.

Neutral Necessity

In acknowledgement of The Greatest of Poetic Geniuses, born on this day in 1757; here are my favourite quotes:

“Excess of Sorrow laughs. Excess of Joy weeps.” (from The Marriage of Heaven & Hell, 1790).

“The Road of Excess Leads to the Palace of Wisdom.”

“Prudence is a rich, ugly old maid, courted by Incapacity.”

“The Tigers of Wrath are Wiser than the Horses of Instruction.”

William Blake; Born 28th November 1757. Never forgotten.
