And how I got it! So. First you raid my CD rack and now you've got your mitts in my bookshelves. That's okay.You're aware that I collect books, yes? Well, the bulk of my collection is rare Bukowski stuff. First editions with paintings in them. Early stuff. etc. Authors (like musicians) pass in and out of your life as you get older. I don't read much Vonnegut anymore, but I used to. I don't listen to Rush anymore, but I used to. But Bukowski has been the constant. Started reading him at 22 and his stuff STILL gets under my skin.
and now, i'll say goodnight, gracie...xoxox
I don't know his writing - interesting that he mentioned Mailer. Must delve deeper.
friday night, home alone. you've just reminded me that i need to get out the scotch, grab some bukowski and burn up some waits... ("please call me baby" to be specific). i suppose i should also have a good wank in honor of mr. b, but that's probably too much info...
Welcome back, Map. So, do you speak French now?As much as I read, I've never read Bukowski (go ahead, UB, call me a heathen). I can change that fairly quickly, though.What I liked about the Tom Waits piece was the solo piano—it set the whole mood, kind of melancholy.
Kind of lost on me, but glad others liked it. Maybe I'm too sober!
Just finished Portions of a Wine Stained Notebook, the 58th book i've read by or about one Henry Charles Bukowski, i love the man but i had to slay my proverbial father and move on... but i still love him, when he was on there was no one better, that last book reminded me of that.
