Summary Observed While Falling

Free download Observed While Falling ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub How their personal relationship affected their creative partnership The book is written with insight and humor and is liberally sprinkled with the kind of outr anecdotes one would expect working with a writer as original and eccentric as Burroughs It confirms Burroughs' and McNeill's prescience the place of Ah Pook in relation to the contemporary graphic novel and its anticipation of the events surrounding 2012 I have never read a biography like it The author and Burroughs begin their collaboration by meeting to study a copy of one of the few Mayan codices not destroyed by brutal censorship The suggestion grows in the reader s mind that the Mayan books are related to the nature of time itself that time can be folded in the manner of the long codex pages that different points on time s path can touch and influence each other The decades of gestation of Burroughs and McNeill s own book then become a demonstration of that idea as McNeill discovers the way his own life has exactly synchronized with that of the first Western artist who entered the jungle in 1836 to document the Mayan ruins In the end what would have been the first graphic novel falls prey to the same censorship or Control that tried to eliminate the codicesWhether the reader has never read a word of Burroughs or has and didn t care for him or thinks he was a geniushas no bearing on what this book has to offerIt s about words as literal magic The powers they unleash And the powers in this world that will go to any lengths to deprive us of that magicStunning

Free download Observed While Falling ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Observed While Falling is an account of the personal and creative interaction that defined the collaboration between the writer William S Burroughs and the artist Malcolm McNeill on the graphic novel Ah Pook is Here The memoir chronicles the events that surrounded it the reasons it was abandoned and the unusual circumstances that brought it back to life McNeill describes his growing friendship with Burroughs and Observed While Falling is not a great book Its not even a good book it s decent For the most part I feel Malcolm McNeill is riding the coat tails of Burroughs while simultaneously sneaking in and trying to force an autobiography of himself portraying himself as a starving artist of the 60s It comes off as rather self aggrandizing to me Also the problem is that McNeill is not a good writer he s decent at some parts and comes off dull and boring in many parts though he might be a good illustrator I m not sureThe examples seem to show that he IS indeed pretty damn good at illustrating In any case he repeatedly describes putting down Burroughs sexual advances probably the only somewhat interesting parts of the book My response to this isITS FUCKIN BURROUGHS YOU BLOW THE DUDE IF HE WANTS YOU TOO Shit if he had two dicks you should have blown one of them while giving a handy jay to the other The dude is a legend I would totally have blown Burroughs just so I could have told an awesome drugged out homoerotic storyMaybe if McNeill s banged Burrough s instead of being a fag about it the book would not have been so boring and dullJust imagaine Burrough s dick turned into a Emerald Tree Boa right before my drug induced eyes See how much cooler that is Clearly McNeill is a total suare and a closet homosexualThe book leaves you wanting to hear about Burroughs than McNeill s boring cliche problems with the law and ladies typical of hippy stories at this time Does have some good uotes from time to time mostly by BurroughsAlso there are some major grammar mistakes which I usually bypass But these are bad for example this oneThe We of his letter to me back then was now very apparent I don t have a fuckin clue what this meansThis is just bad grammarOh wait now I get it after rereading 8 timeswhateverand this one is another example of shit grammarI would one of the first ones on itI would expect better if I was going to drop 2999 for this bookThis is just sloppy workLuckily I would never pay this much for anything and just drunkenly annoy librarians via email at 4am until they unwillingly order books for meSurprisingly the chapter entitled Here was pretty fascinating and has left me curious about Mayan civilization He starts going off on paranoid rants about 2012 and the collapse of societyThis is all necessary and good stuff I can appreciateHe then compares the circular rather than linear idea of history and how the current present time is a repeat of the pastRanging from politics to technologyExamplesTelegraph to internet Really well written chapterOh here are some cool uotesBill was no fan of book reviewersHe compared them to the Egyptian Assayers of Scribe the court historians who enforced the interests of their employers and forestalled opposition They were the arbiters of taste the controllers of information the ultimate censors It was they who determined what would be read and who would read it Bill wanted to put a curse on all of them GPS CCTV surveillance 24 hours a day and cops and security relentless wordimage programming and monitoring through media results in an increasing behavioral conformity political correctness and identical cultural religious mindsetBut such a level of control in the long run produces a dull homogenous non resistant human productHollywood indoctrinated audience
