    Another "Bukowski Drank Here" Claim

    And for all I know, it may be true? The "bar in Philly", Musso & Franks, and the Santa Anita racetrack bar(s) get the most mention it seems. According to their Facebook page, you can still get a Budweiser draft for 3 dollars. That's not bad for Hollywood Blvd., no? Literary Bars and Cafes...

    Robert Altman - He and I should be so close.....

    Can someone recommend a Robert Altman film that will make me understand him ? Tonight I re-watched "Rashomon"(Kurosawa - 1950) and one of the DVD extras was Altman giving his commentary on the film. In about 5 minutes he summarized everything I love about movies in general and why "Rashomon"...

    A Play's Revival in NY

    I was just reading this short review of a play - originally performed 12 years ago - in today's New York Times. Sounds interesting but I wish that it went more into depth. But of course, if you click on the highlighted link "Charles Bukowski" in the review, it takes you to a place that knows...

    "Howl" with James Franco ? Please ....

    I did a fast search and didn't see any mention of this film here yet. I know Ginsberg is not popular around here and I'm no big fan of his myself. However, I've always liked "Howl" and was very curious to see what this film might do with the subject matter. Let me sum it up quickly: Franco grew...

    Combine Music with Rhyming Poetry ?!?!

    Of course not. I would hate that and there's no reason I should like this video clip either. But somehow I do - the rhyme scheme is largely unnoticeable. But the camera work is sweet and tight. And once in awhile, the small things need to be said...

    Roger Ebert Tweets Buk Photo

    As many of you know, the film critic Roger Ebert was/is an admirer of both "Barfly" and Bukowski's writing overall. Ebert's Twitter feed is full of interesting things and an hour ago, he posted this pic of our hero. Maybe this photo isn't a new one, but it's a cool one I think...

    Teddy Pendergrass 1950-2010

    Just heard the sad news that Teddy Pendergrass has passed away. One of my favorite voices of all time and one of the most soulful in all of R&B. The kind of voice that could overcome 1980's schlock like this:
