Yes that is it .

I'm away for a while

Have some Ludacris fun while I'm away.
Best of luck!

The technique is also called "cut-up" and that's the name of of one of Ludacris' "songs".

On the right path with 'cut and paste'
Another very similar term for Burrough's technique will get you to Ludacris.

(I thought your solution was far too obvious, Grey, so used another link!!!)

Sorry, just disbanded the committee...

Adverts ?

In 2002 the Washington Monthly was slated for using William Burroughs 'cut and paste' style for its adverts and we all knew about Pepsi having to drop Ludacris from their adverts due to public pressure !

No ?

OK I'm still looking.

What a way to spend a day off !!!

(As we've just hit 1922 posts - should we form a committee ?)

Oh dear, had to look up Ludacris to see who or what, he or it, was or is.

This may take some time............

Thanks TM,

I love the Alan Partridge exchange with Patrick Marber as a defence lawyer

AP: " With all due respect, you don't expect me to believe that the police would arrest an innocent man"

PM: " With slightly less respect, Alan, can I mention the Birmingham Six or the Guildford Four ..?."

Anyway.... back to C & R

From William Burroughs to Ludacris

Yeah, those police people, so unreasonable.

In reply to an earlier post on 29 Oct 2009 09:06:29 GMT
Toffeeman says:
Yes, there we are, that's the right answer.....

I was always highly amused by the Police's "new wave" credentials. Ex Soft Machine, ex Curved Air, they were 2/3 old hippies....

In reply to an earlier post on 29 Oct 2009 06:55:54 GMT
Carradale says:
Yeah but Summers played briefly with Soft Machine on an American Tour in 1968 supporting Hendrix
(Apologies for fripping out earlier. Too many mushrooms.)

Greysuit says:
In 1949 Burroughs was arrested by - yes you've guessed it - The Police - after letters between him and Allen Ginsberg referring to a possible delivery of marijuana were found in his home.

And again in 1951 after shooting and killing Joan Vollmer - guess who arrested him again - .......

I was beginning to think I'd got this link wrong but i've checked it in about 30 secs and I'm right.

Toffeeman says:
and what has Fripp to do with Soft Machine then? Nothing!

But you're warmer

In reply to an earlier post on 28 Oct 2009 20:06:28 GMT
Carradale says:
Well Fripp and Summers recorded a couple of albums together etc, etc

OK Paul Weller an American actor appeared in a 1991 film version of the Naked Lunch as the Burroughs character. British musician , etc of same name had/has a well publicised dislike of Sting which included in its manifestations a widely reported incident when Weller spat on a portait of Sting (Sting was in The Police)

Not the link I was after (and no clues yet)

Carradale says:
William Burroughs wrote The Soft Machine which is part of The Nova Police Trilogy

Correct answer Toffee

On you go and set from The Police, if you can refrain from nattering to hg for a mo'...

Toffeeman says:
Hg,

I followed the text on www.bbc.co.uk (can't cope with radio commentary) until we went two behind. Given our lack of the two creative players in our midfield we were never going to score two.

Anyway, if any team has to beat us I don't mind Spurs. We need to keep going in Europe or our season could be over before it's begun.

Toffeeman says:
Sting was in that film, so that must be the link. (You had to press "more" on IMDB)

OK that WAS sneaky but not my original intention to come back. Just that I AM hooked "and ( as the large lady used to say at the end of Morecambe and Wise used to say) I Love You All !"

Right, C! Resigning from the threads and then attempting a comeback under another name... now THAT would be sneaky, but of course you would never.......
Thanks for the 'poor man's pizza' recipe, I'm sorry to only just be replying but I'd already left for the PPU when you posted it and have only just seen it. Any more food ideas, anyone, stick 'em up!
Sorry about the match, TM, but from what I heard on the radio you gave us a pretty good battle, especially considering your circumstances.
Love.

Almost there but c'mon Toffee. Look a bit harder at who was in L. S etc......I try not to do sneaky .
Convoluted, yes but I hope never sneaky...

Toffeeman says:
Well the only film I've found that links the two is Lock, Stock etc which has an OCS song and Junior Murvins Police and Thieves (which is a bit sneaky if it's right)
