john sinclair is all talk and everyone but himself.


Listening in to Matt Dwyer's podcast featuring John Sinclair gave me a great big smile. For now I understand what John so loved about Burroughs -- The acting, the fraud, and the great con.

If you stringed together the interviews with Sinclair you'd see what I see, and that's the evolution of his bullshit - Where he, like Burroughs takes from all around him and spins it into something they call their own. Much like popular writers do every day, they don't live a life and write about that, they write about those who live a life and 'act' as if it was their life.. and being an actor/writer, it's not hard for them to spin that illusion, or it wasn't hard until present-day.

Now that the age of information is leading to the age of honesty you can document the con.

Sinclair, in the Matt Dwyer podcast contradicts the argument he had with me when I filmed him some 5 years ago. He basically uses the point I stressed to him and he argued that I was wrong. The point I made was creative influence inspiring all change, and if a revolution was wanted, it would have to come about through creative influence first.

Later in the Dwyer podcast Sinclair takes from yet another interviewer - a Mr. William Ham and the interview he did with Sinclair while in Astoria, Oregon for the WTF Fest. John railed on Mr. Ham for bringing up pop culture names and I mean RAILED on him… In the Dwyer interview it seems he's had time to think about Mr. Ham's point and use it as his own.

The only reason he didn't beat on Matt like he did Mr. Ham was because Matt is a pal of Wayne Kramer, combined with the fact that Amy and I had just called Sinclair out publicly for being an asshole to folks who were his host and folks who went way beyond the call to give him respect and honor his wishes, and to top it off, having an ego that didn't match the results.

If you listen, and you won't, excluding Matt and Ham of course, you'll hear the dick talking about how famous folks are just people, and once you understand this you can have a conversation with them.  Funny, Sinclair isn't capable of a conversation… He cuts the too polite host, Matt Dwyer off time and time again to hear himself sound smart, to hear himself sound famous - Although he's merely regurgitating the words of every great man and woman he's brushed up against.

A typical poser who came from a zipcode of affluence and for some insane reason admired those who did not… Just like the man Sinclair wrote his college thesis on, William Burroughs.

he's alone because he can't put the weed down. yes, most likely because his peers had a monetary success and he did not... I bet they didn't want or care about that and he did. it really shows the intent of an artist. the beats we all derived from slum poets who didn't care about that bullshit of it all, only the freedom to express - the beats exploited that for the romantic notion and not the political evolution of that grand idea that total unrepentant expression will set you/us free.

My Photo
Name:

over 20 years of refusing the invites of the educated, celebrity and ruling classes, preferring instead the excitement of upper low class, poverty, petty crime and violence.

It's not the wine and cheese I hate, it's the boring, void of anything lives the rich and privileged scurry thru like the walking dead on meth - most of the rich think their cultured simply by consuming - culture can't be bought, it must be lived.

I was truly meant to live on the side of a hill, growing my own tomatoes, basil and garlic in peace with my soul mate and dog.
