    3 uncollected poems: AVALANCHE 1 (1966)

    A Conversation... and A Kind... are very strong ones! Not such a fan of the second one though. It's good but the ones where Bukowski goes a little "child's play" with his typer I always find of lesser quality. Love the more serious ones. Who cares.

    The best beers (not the so-called king of beers)

    yeah said it before but being Belgian and loving beer go great together. The best one out there is the "blue" Chimay. Like angels having an orgy in your mouth

    Have you ever been dead broke?

    how the hell do you homeless guys get your hands onto a computer with an internet connection? Lived on the street myself for about three months (was never really thrown out, I was fucked up and on a great big drinking binge). Got by raiding night shops and sleeping in a friends' car. Was a...

    What are you drinking?

    yeah it really arrogant it may sound, if you're used to drinking Belgian beer most foreign beers really don't taste that good. Very bad even. To be an alcoholic in Belgium is like being a kid in a candy store or a nerd on linux btw Bruno, do you remember some of the stuff you drank?

    What are you drinking?

    One of the only perks of being Belgian is the beer the fridge and highly recommended: - Chimay (bleu is the best) - Duvel - Westmalle trippel - Westvleteren (10°) - Satan (ow yes) believe me folks, that's a class beer fridge.

    I just received Hitler Painted Roses in the mail today and am 96 pages into it... it works for me. Not everything but most of it anyways. Now aren't you glad I shared that with you! You're most welcome

    A discussion about '2 a.m.'

    That was brilliant. Very passionate. One of his better ones I think... Haven't got a clue what Shostakovich sounds like but I will surely check him out.

    I'm unemployed for five months now and live on a minimum wagers wellfare cheque. I can drink for two weeks with that and then I'm broke. Life sucks not at the beer bottle.

    Steve Richmond / Mr. Viced Honest

    I know a lot of people that use of which a great share are artists. Believe me, there isn't a rule. Like there never is. It's not like 'oh you use it can't be good' or something. It all depends from person to person.

    Steve Carell as Buk

    that's pretty tasteless. Just like Victoria Jackson for that matter.

    Why do you like Bukowski?

    the thing I like most about him is that he knew that life was fairly pointless.

    Bukowski's funeral

    I don't think he ever obtained that peace, but I do feel like he searched for it. I mean, you don't drink when you're content. No one does. I believe he drank to cope with things. Granted, inner peace was a shitty way to put it...

    Bukowski's funeral

    the only thing that comes to mind that Bukowski and buddhism have in common is the search for inner peace. One of the biggest differences between the two however is how they searched for it... you won't find these baldies in a bar if ya know what I mean

    Bukowski tattoos

    Yes I do have the poem in one of his books, so that won't be happening. Could you tell me more about John Martin altering his work ? I don't really get it since he seems to have so much respect for Bukowski. If I respected a poet I'd leave it all as it was, typo's and everything. Just to feel...

    sunlight, here I am...

    you guessed right, Ponder ! And Ambreen, I do speak French but only the sort of French they have taught us at high school. So as soon as the words have more than three syllabels (?), I'm fucked. And thanks for all the warm welcomes guys ! I really apreciate it. Take care

    Bukowski tattoos

    hi there, ever since I read the poem (and that goes way back) I've always wanted to get the lines ' born like this/into this ' on the inside of my right arm. Well, not really on the inside cause that would be pointless. But you know. Greets !
