Beat News: July 23 1998

Beat Generation Litkicks News
Damn! My new project won't be ready till August 4. On that date, I'll be giving away 750 free test copies of my new CD-Rom movie, so please try to come back around then. Right now all I can offer is a sneak peek at the website (if you don't mind some broken links).

Bringing a creative idea to completion is never easy. While I work myself to exhaustion finishing my little indie project, you can enjoy checking out Neal Amid, a wildly anarchic comic tribute to the Neal Cassady legend, created by Cat Simril, who actually *did* finish it and sent me a copy as proof. "Neal Amid" is a sound play on audiocassette, very much in the spirit of old Firesign Theatre or Monty Python comedy records, and the plot revolves around a 60's-era Neal figure whose spirit is somehow intersecting with that of the Grateful Dead during their 1978 visit to Egypt, where they played a series of concerts in front of the Pyramids. The cassette's wonderful cover photo illustrates the cosmic sense of this notion better than I can explain it. Order a copy -- you gotta love it.

And please come back August 4 ... see you then ...
