So far, so good. A very nice tribute to Bukowski... and also a great continuation. A lot of good poets in this one (and other writers to boot)!

I agree with everyone here. Awesome work. It really looks and Smells Great. I haven't gotten to read all of it yet, I just got it today. But what I have read rocks and kicks some burly ass.... Thank you Jan and Jocelyne. :)

You're not alone. Can we be the brothers Jack? Went back to the well and found mine, too. Way cool. As I save all, including packages, I would not have found this until years later; thanks, Bill.

I got mine too now.
What's left to say about it, that hasn't already been praised here?
It's a wonderful mag with nice little details and fine content and excellent goodies (postcards, print). Everybody knows it.

Thanks !!!

I like the style & the spontanity of
the stroke but I miss the originality.
Let her stand on her head or so...
Correction: that would not be original
either.

I found it while I was going through Buk pics on Google.

It seems like Photobucket has deleted the pic here for some reason. I only see a text now saying, "This image or video violated or terms of use". I wonder why?

Probably the female genitalia.

Still, it is art and very tame. I cannot imagine that they are scared of a little vagina?
I think you're right, Bill! I just had a look at their Terms Of Use and found this:

#

8.3 exploits people in a sexual or violent manner;
#

8.4 contains nudity, excessive violence, or offensive subject matter or contains a link to an adult website;

They must have an army of censors on the job 27/7. It took them less than 24 hours to remove that painting from my account - prudish bastards! :mad:

they're definitely scared of a big vagina.
Shit, I'm scared of big vagina too. We were talking about little vagina.

Bill

p.s. Have we gone off in the wrong direction? I bet Obama would think so....

p.p.s. This was ART, not nudity. Would they remove the Statue of David with his cock bared for all to see? What about Venus by Botticelli? That certainly shows titty.

You're absolutely right, Bill! It would be interesting to post some pics of the Statue of David and Venus, and see if they'll remove them as well.

Of course it was NUDITY! - AND it was ART!
How do these two contradict each other?

BoS: I was thinking the same thing, but not with David. I was more thinking of some Baroque-painting-nudies.
:-P

Ponder: That's wonderful pic of you that you posted, but doesn't this belong to the 'you in 1987'-thread? No? Ah, you say that was LAST YEAR !!! okay then.

obviously not!

And Jesus was not from Scandanavia, but that is how the Mormons paint him.



I bet that this has more to do with the sculptor and his audience than the subject.

Michaelangelo was not a Jew, so he would have Christianized his subject.

Funny thing is that Jesus was more black than white, really. He certainly was darker skinned. He would certainly be on a no-fly list along with Yusef Islam. Of course, Jesus was not African, but was certainly not blonde haired, blue eyed, with a nicely trimmed Barry Gibb-like beard.

I wanna find me an asian jesus....
