In one of my meanders through the web this weekend, I was reading about Jack Kerouac, which led to William S Burroughs, which led to Burroughs’ cut-up technique.
Cut-up is when the author takes existing text, cuts it into pieces of words or stretches, and rearranges them into a new piece. It’s like sampling, but with words.
Sure, we do cut-up all the time online, and isn’t plagiarism a sort of non-credited cut-up? But I think the point is that the pieces, the seams, are visible, the cut-up technique, explicit, is what gives the energy and expectation of the new mix.
I’ve been thinking how such technique could exist online. [If there are any web geniuses out there who want to play with this with me, I have some ideas.]
Art in spam
I’ve always been fascinated by some spam that use clever text to mask their nefarious origins. Indeed, at one point, I was collecting from: names that combined interesting words into interesting fictitious names.
Below, though, is one that came in today, which, in my cut-up-alert state, stood out as a great example of random cut-up of online text. I’ve looked for the sources of some of the sentences (with typos), to give the idea of the extent of the cut-up (revealed with a strict Google search). In some cases, the specific text suggests a pedigree of cut-up across the web. Cool.
I do suppose I’m opening myself up to more spam, as I wonder if the specificity of this email is encoded in the arrangement of the sentences. Interesting, though.
