    Factotum - broken clock scene

    I don't want to go all philosophical here, but this is a joke but it also is centrally connected to one of the main themes of Factotum: Time. And the way clock-time dominates the lives of workers in the modern world and the absurdity of living by clock-time rather than by inner time, or...

    existentialism for dummies...

    I wonder if any of you guys and gals ever saw the TV series "The Prisoner' with Patrick McGoohan. Seems to me to fit Roni's description quite well for an existentialist film. Poor Pat is thrown into a bizarre, totally "made-up" "village" by remote authorities and tries unsucessfully to escape...

    "Murder" in NYQ 47

    Found a poem entitled "Murder" in NYQ 47 1992 but it is different from the "Murder" listed as being in that issue. Not sure if this one is collected or not.

    Crumb interview

    Thanks for posting the cool Crumb interview. I recently finished writing my book R. Crumb: Literature, Autobiography and the Quest for Self, due out in February 2021 from U. Press of Mississippi for any of you Crumb fans. I have a chapter discussing Crumb's Bukowski drawings. Here is the cover.

    The Lion, Oui April 1984

    I was rummaging through my magazines in search of a Robert Crumb article and found "The Lion"--don't think it is in database or posted anywhere unless I looked in the wrong places. A riff on Hemingway obviously...

    In which year did Bukowski wrote Democracy?

    That makes sense since there would be no way Brewton could have gotten the ms. And the fact that there are no corrections on the Bukowski ms suggests that it is the final version I would think......So I assume Martin must have retyped the poem and sent it to Brewton? Bizarre but not unexpected...

    In which year did Bukowski wrote Democracy?

    I'm curious what happened to this poem between the ms of 1986 and publication in X-Ray in 2001? Did Martin get to the Ms and alter it before X-Ray published it?

    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 City' in Bukowski's work: advise a student of literature!

    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...
