I briefly owned a rubbish removal business; truck, roll-off containers etc...I will say that it seems odd to have a 30 yard roll off for some minor renovations on a bungalow.
Noooo, but I would meet you at the gate with a pint of Early Times...I still want to go down there and take the windows, tiles, plaster and dig up some dirt , but I'm sure Hindinwood will have armed thugs there to lynch me.
OMG! I luv those 2!at least i was just quoting rubyred, who was telling me the other day how much she likes paintings of girls with giant heads and oversized eyes...
If you go back to the beginning of all this (and only a masochist would do that) my question was always (and remains) what the motivation of the preservationists was, and if it was at all possibly financial.1. people who don't care about preservation have the option of ignoring delongpre completely.
None. To me. Personally, a book that I did not hand to him to sign has a worthless signature in it. But the book collecting world disagrees with us, so we are stuck with this standard.2. what's the difference between ascribing special importance to his residence and special importance to his signature?
There is indeed, and it is only one of the many things about book collecting/selling/buying that has always mystified me.there's a hell of a lot of financial motivation in buying and selling signed bukowski books, regardless of how significant the signature is to the person doing the buying and selling.
A TRUE fanatic would move into the apartment building on Mariposa.It still retains some of its former seedy working-class glory: last I saw there was a nice big banner advertising vacancies, and the place seemed to be fairly teeming with Salvadoran refugees, young Mexican families, and chain-smoking Russians. Jumbo's Clown Room is nearby. And I'll bet the rooms are cheap(for Hollywood).
