    Drug Art

    Xanax works well for this old dog, keeps the amygdala down to a reasonable size. Trouble is, getting doctors to write prescriptions for it. Like many medicines that actually work, it's "addictive". Usually, I've been offered one of the dozens of varieties of salts they pawn off on those needing...

    abandoned cities/buildings/amusement parks

    Used to be an abandoned rail station on the outskirts of Buffalo, N.Y., the place haunted me everytime I rode the train to Toronto past it. Wonder if it still stands?

    What are you drinking?

    Gubna' The latest offering from the folks at Oskar Blues Brewery. Ridiculously expensive four-packs, well worth sampling if you got the dinero.

    Which Bukowski title should my sister use in class?

    If you want, you can always ask. A misguided attempt at humour on my part, terribly sorry.

    Ten year drunk/on the bum - fact or fiction?

    Always a mystery, that's for sure, and rife for no end of speculation. I live in metro Atlanta, and cannot imagine what it was like here in the forties. I worked with a guy who moved here in '55 as a kid and was put in special class because they could not understand his Upstate New York accent...

    Which Bukowski title should my sister use in class?

    Anything by Elmer Batters. Bukowski had enormous respect for his work, as do I. They were of the same generation. Or as my smarmy NYC hipster friends like to refer to: "A dwindling demographic" God Bless Them All

    Used to drink with this biker who had that tattoed on his bottom lip. Christ, the people I used to hang with.

    Samuel Adams (the beer, not the dude)

    I want a set of those Sam Adams "Turbinator" glasses they're always advertising on television. It's Friday guys, let's get fucked up.

    What are you drinking?

    La Fin du Monde, a Quebec version of the killer Belgians, quite good I might add.

    Heavy Metal

    No one has mentioned the awful "G.G. Allin", not sure where he would fit in this spat...surely not an original, but if we can utter the names of Halford and Zeppelin, then why the hell not? (ducks head to avoid flying object)

    The Corgi's name is Bill?!! Christ, my name is Bill too. He's a lot better looking than I am though.

    pimpin' ain't easy...

    Hell, the poetry game is a minefield, but would you elaborate on the pimping? p.s. I know a halal butcher in Brooklyn who's got more goat heads than he knows what to do with...maybe you guys could cut a deal...

    A good beating...

    Who knows?, beatings were a regular thing around the old casa. I won't go into detail, but it will suffice to say that they made me the person I am today. Different people deal with trauma in different manners. I have friends who were equally roughed up, yet they seem to have done well as...

    Nick Cave on Bukowski

    I like a lot of what Cave has done over the years (not particularly the latest Grinderman stuff) but the SCUM manifesto? I tried reading that crap years ago, absolute drivel. When you separate Cave from his writing and music what have you got? Another swinging dick that has to shave his mug...

    As my old buddy Charlie at the cemetery was fond of saying: "I root for the Red Sox and whoever is playing the Yankees" Another uninspiring October, time for some Hockey.
