Beat News: June 3 1996

Beat Generation Litkicks News Tributes
1. Happy 70th birthday Allen Ginsberg!

2. Allen is probably bummed, though, about Timothy Leary's death this past weekend. An interesting piece of info here: one of Leary's last phone calls, a few hours before he died, was to William S. Burroughs. Leary told Burroughs: "I hope someday I'll be as funny as you are."

3. This is way overdue: I'm going to spend the next few months reviewing and updating all the pages in LitKicks. Some of the info is out of date, and some areas need work -- hopefully things will start shaping up real soon. I'm keeping the basic design the same, though (I think). I never liked the look of frames, and even though I do know Java and Shockwave, I just don't see that stuff fitting in here. If anyone has thoughts on this, though, send them along.

4. Coming soon: a pretty impressive photo-essay/walking-tour of Neal Cassady's Denver, contributed by Andrew Burnett.
