Get Your Fix

Another Sunday, and after the grey, weeping sky that prevailed last weekend, it is so good to feel the last of today’s winter sun streaming through my window.

And while I am getting my fix, you should get yours.

Huncke

Check out this great short film based on the poem A Fix by Herbert Huncke. For many Huncke is better known as ‘Herman’ in Burroughs’ classic novel, Junky or as ‘Elmer Hassel’ in Kerouac’s On the Road, but Huncke was certainly no bit player. In fact it was Huncke who intoduced Kerouac to the term ‘beat’.

And if this film peaks your interest, check out this reading of Huncke’s classic ‘The Evening Sun Turned Crimson’.

Now that voice is beat.
