    Righto, Zobraks...I tried to find the column using Captain Co's March 23, 1972 with no luck and tried the data base and found it on March 23, 1973, but then forgot to put the correct date in my post. Thanks!

    South of No North - magazine column sources

    I am just finishing writing a book on Robert Crumb so I have been looking at Crumb's illustrations of "Bop Bop Against That Curtain." I tracked down the original story to LAFP, March 23, 1972, but the opening was unfamiliar. The LAFP version begins: "All of us had begun to masturbate and we...

    The red neon Pegasus signs were common in LA when I was a child during the Sixties. I just looked it up and yes, they were at the Mobil gas stations. Don't know if it was Schroeder or Bukowski's idea to have Pegasus flashing in the window as he is writing poetry in "Barfly", but Pegasus the...

    Anthony Bourdain

    I watched his shows, liked the fact that he had a program on Burroughs and one on Jim Harrison in Montana and I seemed to recall a Bukowski reference which I just located turns out to have been in Bourdain's show on Mississippi: BOURDAIN: What kind of socialist, communist are you up to...

    Charles Bukowski's Posthumous Edits: As the Spirit Wanes, Shit Happens

    Also, to weigh in here, there is ample evidence that Martin substantially changed Bukowski's stories before they appeared in Black Sparrow collections: i.e. the originals appeared in the Los Angeles Free Press, Nola and Open City and the changes mirror the alterations made in the poems--i.e they...

    I just came across "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen (from the song)" from Open City, November 23, 1967--so another poem with the same title. I don't think it has been posted previously.

    L.a. free press nov. 28 - dec. 4 1975: 4 poems

    I think the "William" in "no fuck" is William Wantling. Bukowski writes in several places about the situation after Wantling died and his wife came to California and he reports a variety of scenarios which ensued between himself and Wantling's wife. The "William" in "all the little girls" is the...
