The cut-up generator

One of these days, I really will get that paper written.

As you may know, I greatly admire the writing of William S. Burroughs.  Yes, his text can make even me blush sometimes, but that does nothing to detract from the pure craft of hooking words with other words, even if Burroughs himself called language "a virus from outer space." But I digress...

I have amassed a significant amount of research material on the cut-up method of composition and I have become something of a Burroughs scholar in the process.  My problem is that I don't yet have a thesis.   I have researched the cut-up method and I know that I want to write about it as a technique of composition and rhetoric, but I lack an exact focus.  Frustrating.

In taking a break from my frustration and my placing of a literary aureole around William Burroughs, I like to play with cut-ups themselves.  I found a Cut-Up Machine online and have run a few segments of my recent blog posts through it.  It was righteous.  Behold the results:
