I'm sorry if this has been mentioned, I've been away.

http://fatherluke.com/bukowski

The most
common question I
get
is
that I remind
people
of bukowski

I know.
It isn't a question.

Duh.

But
my writing
reminds them
of the Buk

I mean
huh?

It shouldn't.

I don't
write about
drinking

I don't
write about
horse races

etc., and so forth.

So there
must
be something
else

something about my writing
something about Bukowski's writing

Would my writing still seem like Bukowski's if I wrote like this, and

not
like
this?

Maybe.

Maybe using punctuation would set me apart

from
the
Buk

I have now driven through every state in America.
Well, all 48 connected states.

When I drove through Cleveland, Ohio, I thought of Harvey Pekar, and his work which he called American Splendor

The bleakness of Cleveland reminded me of Harvey.

Harvey Pekar
Charles Bukowski
Father Luke Miljevich

American Writers

None of us on MySpace

My friend Blake says that she is glad Mitch Hedberg and Bill Hicks died before MySpace.

"Can you see Hedberg or Hicks asking you to be their friend? I mean, duh. Get a life."

Thanks Blake. I love that.

Mitch Hedberg
Bill Hicks
Harvey Pekar
Charles Bukowski
Father Luke Miljevich

Crazy, Dark, Average American Heroes,
taking a casual, and an unflinching look, at everyday life

In all modesty,
I mean.

I like Father's writings. He is member of this forum, but he post here only a few messages. But I visit his site often. IMO he have interesting blog.
 
Jesus Christ! Stop talking about myspace!

You make it sound like it's some kind of Revolution!

O, the world was authentic before MYSPACE
everyone was real and true and beatiful

what a lot of nonsense.

it's just an e_Mail!

BILL HICKS AND bukowski

obviously
created by OTHER people

Wow, Mitch Hedberg and all, good to know. Fuck comparisons with Buk you write just fine. If we follow a good trail we might get some meat.

Let's no one shut up or apologize. I will listen and I will be heard. Dumb and drunk or sober and wise and vise versa. You don't have to be one to be the other.
