Words of Advice For Young People – William S. Burroughs

And speaking of Burroughs… When I saw this in the list of related videos I just couldn’t pass it up. Spare Ass Annie, a collaboration between Burroughs and Michael Franti (before Spearhead, back when he was doing the Disposable Heroes of Hiphopricy). It is a brilliant album featuring a particularly entertaining version Words of Advice for Young People. Below is a short film experiment by Mario Escobar, where he takes this track and merges it with an old educational film on manners.  As a bonus, we also have a short animated Burroughs film. Enjoy!
