Ever see Riverdance? That crazy sort-of-Irish quasi-folk mess with long rows of people dancing from the waist down? People, "the masses" out there, love that shit.

I wish I owned smog.com. I could sell it to some California company and live off the proceeds for a few years.Kalli said:speaking of snobs, who was the fella' who posted on smog.com that was all cranky about people changing his bukowski wikipedia entries...i have my suspicions, but yet i wonder...hmmm. ;)
She's quite a well-known poet, and was also, coincidentally, published by Black Sparrow.Kalli said:I found an interview there with a poet named Wanda Coleman who cites Bukowski as an influence, I'll post the quote sometime, it's really quite funny.
