and you may find yourself... shopping in Costco with one of your all-time underground literary heroes? I've spent the past 2 days doing SRL duty tarping machines before the rain hits San Francisco, and shot this video of a fun, unexpected minute with the man responsible for Modern Primitives, Pranks!, all those wonderful Ballard books and RE/Search Publications:"Since 1977, beginning with Search & Destroy, we've produced personal (not corporate), ground-breaking books on a variety of subjects, from punk rock to incredibly strange music, tattooing to S&M, zines to pranks, William S. Burroughs to J.G. Ballard. RE/Search Publications have long been required reading in the underground canon--primary source books that define, inspire, amaze and amuse..." interestingly, I just found out that this Costco was built on the site of an old brewery, where allegedly parts for the first SRL machine were obtained.
