I am Danny Mac and I just found out about this website. Have I been under a rock? I am happy that I found it just the same. I am so thankful to the people who have put this site together. Everything is so thorough and so well done. I watch the "Barfly" one or two times a year without fail. I have almost every line in the movie memorized. I just bought two books of Hank's letters. I am purposely buying Buk's stuff slowly so that I always have something to look forward to. I also just bought the DVD that has the Canada and Redondo Beach readings. I love Bukowski so much. I'm sure he would have been proud of me if I would have had the chance to tell him I used to polish off 1/2 Kegs of beer by myself every 7 weeks. I used to play the drums and I would drink like a mad man and play the drums like a demon from hell. Ah...the good ole' days.
