    Poet Galway Kinnell

    Just discovered this guy Galway Kinnell. I don't know much about him except a brief scan on the interwebs. What are some opinions around here, if any, on his writing? I like what I've seen so far.

    Bukowski Tavern Boston is a thing as, i assume, most of you already know. I'd like to hear what what folks here think about the swag BTB is offering. I say no thank you but i find it rather amusing. But then again, i am a dork & if i come upon an old racetrack t-shirt i might purchase it. Now...

    The Iggles

    I grew up an athlete in a family of athletes and sure it was good times. My folks were also hippies so it wasn't all false machismo. There was also weed & music. Anyway, the Eagles won the Superbowl and although I no longer follow most sports closely I did watch the game & it was awesome, maybe...

    Yet another "Buk" bar going down due to gentrification. There's a link to a 12 min doc on the making of "Barfly" in there too. The Smog Cutter is the latest Los Angeles bar to fall to gentrification, after nearly 30 years in operation.

    Bukowski Tavern

    Well, the Bukowski Tavern aka "a dive bar in Boston" has, on the bookface, made a request for "fans" & patrons to design a sticker for their establishment. Anybody here wanna take a swing? On the one hand, who gives a shit? On the other hand it's kind of funny, the idea of doing one. Would that...

    Wrong (find what you love and let it kill you...again)

    This is rhetorical. All around here seem to know better by now. Why does this quote continue to go around? Found this on the fb page "Charles Bukowski Fans". Ugh.

    While The Music Played

    So what's this thing I found on ebay? Am I missled? Is it actually collected somewhere? It's a monthly thing from Black Sparrow featuring one of their writers per issue. This is SPARROW 5 While The Music Played by Charles Bukowski from February 1973. The post says poetry is in it but not what...

    So this is kind of funny. I couldn't say if it's true but it seems someone actually did a study on this.

    A podcast other than THIS IS NOT A TEST

    Maybe admin can move this if i've put it in the wrong spot or if there's already a thread somewhere that i've missed. Anyway... just listened to the 99% Invisible podcast and specifically The Architect of Hollywood episode about one of the first greatest black architects in America. Paul R...

    Ben Franklin Museum

    Went there yesterday. Haven't been there since the late 70's. It opened in 1976 so it was a requirement for pretty much all grade schools to class trip there. Pretty cool. Wow, printing was a labor intensive process back in 1725(?) when Ben started. Also, the hole is the, supposedly, first...
