    Even more bizarre than Cameron Diaz... - Jewel?

    any time the words of your poems are stacked on top of each other like this you are going to be compared to Bukowski.

    "Peanuts" as written by Bukowski

    I'm going to assume a lot, if not most or all, of you have seen this already. But, for anybody that hasn't, this is Peanuts as if it had been written by Bukowski. http://progressiveboink.com/archive/peanuts-by-charles-bukowski/ It still cracks me up every time.

    Is Buk your favorite writer?

    Obviously everyone here is a huge fan of Buk's, but do you consider him your favorite writer? How about just poet? Short story writer? Novelist? If not, who are your favorites? I definitely consider him to be my favorite poet. For short stories my holy trinity, so to speak, would...

    What do you want for Christmas?

    My family exchanged gifts tonight. I did, in fact, get a typewriter. Very excited. Now all I need to do is move out and develop a drinking habit...though, I don't drink at all(and can't because of a stomach surgery I had), so that might prevent from becoming a great writer ;).

    Favorite Posthumous Collection?

    It's almost universally accepted that the posthumous poetry collections are weaker. Some of my favorite of Buk's poems come from posthumous collections(So You Want To Be A Writer, Roll The Dice, a bunch of others...), but as collections I'll agree that the ones that came out while he was alive...

    Well, it does sort of have to do with Bukowski, but only indirectly...

    Thank you so much. I'm still fuzzy on all allowances and restrictions regarding Fair Use, so your help and explanation is greatly appreciated.

    Well, it does sort of have to do with Bukowski, but only indirectly...

    My question to the board is about copyright laws and such. I'm working on a non-fiction short story and I wanted to quote Bukowski from the poem "Some People" when he says "some people never go crazy. what truly horrible lives they must lead." Does anyone know if I'm allowed to do this...

    Lately I've been listening to a lot of Miles Davis, Black Flag, and Neutral Milk Hotel.

    Hank wouldn't think much of me.

    Thank you everyone for the warm welcomes. I imagine there will be many many many late night hours spent here. I will do my best to destroy the introvert in me and be an active member of the forum. This seems like a really great community and I hope I can work my way into it.

    I don't own nearly as much Buk as I would like(who does, right?) mainly due to finances. I only have paperbacks and I have: Ham On Rye Women Post Office South Of No North Hot Water Music You Get So Alone At Times... Slouching Towards Nirvana Pleasures Of The Damned Burning In...

    Thank you! I actually used to live in Germany as a kid. My father was in the military. Wonderful country. I actually plan on leaving the job this summer so I can go back to school. It'll be nice to be awake during the day again.

    Ha... But seriously, it is quite easy. I would be quite upset with the southern stereotype if I didn't see so much of it on a regular basis. If you ever get a chance, you should check out a High School football game in Alabama, it is a universe all it's own. Thanks for the welcome. Before I...

    Hi, guys. I'm Erek. I'm a new member, but I've been lurking for a while.(I work third shift at a hotel while I've been taking some time off from school, and this board is highly entertaining. It makes the nights go by much faster.) I write, as I'm sure most of you do and probably better...
