NC: If you took Bukowski the man away from his writing there's very little there but kind of self-referential...shit. But even though Berryman had a very colorful life, he was largely in our imaginations. When you think of Berryman you think of his poems and you think of his character Henry and all of that stuff. When you think of Bukowski you just think of Bukowski.
Well I was all excited about finding a new home there until I saw this:
I love Nick Cave, but sometimes he is just wrong. Plus, he can be a bit of a pompous ass at times.
Non-commital yet sucking up to Cave (by agreeing) at the same time. I'd prefer it if he'd said 'I hate Bukowski myself'. At least then you'd know it was an actual opinion.Last year you recorded a song called "And We Call Upon the Author to Explain," where you praise John Berryman and sort of diss Charles Bukowski. I kind of think Bukowski sucks myself...
well i guess what i'm saying is: if buk had been more of a "regular guy" the site might not have had a chance to fizzle out-it prob wouldn't have existed at all
wow. you wrote 'heavens to betsy'...enough said there, i thinkHeavens to Betsy!
wish i wasAre you high boy??
how do you say, "the stone is the only sane person on this website" in German?the stone's head is filled with colourful plasticine.
oh please stop gerard! you're killing me with your cleverness! oh please have mercy!That guy has sunk like a stone.
i'm saying that average writers with average personalities don't have websites dedicated to themAre you saying that all authors/poets/musicians/creative persons are solely remembered thx due to their crazy personalities?
lashing out? deep. thanks for the analysis dr phil. i'll go sit under a tree and contemplate that right after i write this. no, i'm all for comeraderie. like i said, i'm a buk fan, and actually, i think this site is pretty cool despite that smug cunt moderator and the rest of you sycophantic ass kissers(i have a little hope for you though b dante) i take issue w/the lack of objectivity. and how many lines do i have to cross before someone "cuts off my wings" gerald? i'm gonna keep crossing lines until someone earns my respect. like nervas said: SOMEBODY STOP ME BABY!No, don't stop him. He's probably someone we already know who has some issue with the camaraderie that exists in this forum. It may be his way of lashing out. Besides if he crosses too many lines or steps on too many toes someone will cut off his wings and toy with him as he crawls around.
Then again he'll become bored and go away. In the mean time our forum demographic needs at least a small percentage of asshats to qualify for federal funding for the arts.
i'm a buk fan
he wasn't a terribly good novelist. i'm sorry, he just wasn't.
i just finished factotum and-i hate to say this-but i found it to be shockingly bad.
some of the poetry is enjoyable(not much of a poetry guy, so i can't really speak on that)
Blah, blah...quack...blah blah blah.....and actually, i think this site is pretty cool despite that smug cunt moderator and the rest of you sycophantic ass kissers(i have a little hope for you though b dante) i...........
