Cabaret Berlin – Exploring the entertainment of the Weimar era
This site is a great source of information for Weimar Berlin, its culture and its stars.
Pushing Ahead of the Dame – David Bowie – Song by Song
Inspiration comes from many different places and David Bowie has been a constant source. This is a great site which details the ideas, stories or theories behind each song. I keep coming back to the entry about Warszawa in particular.
Language Is A Virus – Cut-Up Machine
This page makes it easy to play with William S. Burroughs Cut Up approach to writing. Whilst not always practical, it can be a very helpful tool allowing you to examine sentence structure and word play.
Oblique Strategies – Card by Card
Looking to change direction, then try one of Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategy cards to help you shift focus.
Strange Flowers – An alternative who’s who of the last 200 years
This is a wonderful site if, like me you’re interested in life’s eccentrics, the decadents of fringe societies who have become undeservingly obscure footnotes in history.
Reality Studio – A William S. Burroughs Community
Fantastic site with lots of information on Burroughs, access to interviews, writing and archives.
Ballardian – Exploring the work of J.G. Ballard
Lots of interviews, views and essays surrounding Ballard’s work.
Website of the collaborative art/writing group.
