Saturday night, bottle of wine and some Bukowski.
What's Bukowski, one may ask?
One level above Romance novels it seems.
Henry Charles Bukowski (born Heinrich Karl Bukowski; August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer.
His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambience of his home city of Los Angeles. His work addresses the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women, and the drudgery of work. Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually publishing over sixty books.
In 1986 Time called Bukowski a "laureate of American lowlife". Regarding Bukowski's enduring popular appeal, Adam Kirsch of The New Yorker wrote, "the secret of Bukowski's appeal. . . [is that] he combines the confessional poet's promise of intimacy with the larger-than-life aplomb of a pulp-fiction hero.
looking for some soul buddies. if you don't know Bukowski you aint hip.
bukowski could open up a whole new world to you.
it would be better if you read some of his books. there is a documentary on his life on Netflix and a movie called factorum on Netflix with matt dillion that is biographical.
he is rated up there with Thompson and kerourac among others.
now , another bottle of wine.
Prolly gonna take a third bottle of wine...
And a new car.
Lots of Polish decendents in my area. Could probably find a Bukowski at the saloon.
the greatest art has come from tortured individuals.
Justin Bieber claims to be an artist. Shall we torture him?
yeah, make him spend 24 hrs. with fellow Canadian rickyb.
Apply enough waterboarding and he could be brought up to the level of Bryan Adams at least.
Did you at least get laid???
Being a former stripper, I doubt she has a problem with that.
Anyone can be whomever or whatever they want to be on an anonymous Internet forum.
The only thing that is certain is that she is not a retirement financial adviser.
I don't know about you, but I have gotten some great financial advice from strippers.
