Welcome to the forum and thanks for the update Edwin.

I have added your post to this existing thread on this exhibition.
Cool looking event, Edwin. Is it too much to request that somebody make a documentary of it for those of us who can't make the New Orleans trip at the moment? :rolleyes:
Lou looked at me and cringed, then shrugged off concern for her unreliable faculties. “I lost my mind when I had the stroke two years ago,” she said. “But I am getting better.”

Watching people lose their memories is sad. (But sadness is beautiful, no?)
in the Vice article, that little part about bukowski trying (and failing) to "fuck lou", ummm.....don't think so...
if I recall correctly, they are thinking about when William wantling died, and bukowski kinda tried to get ruth wantling to go to bed with him...
