Hi Hanzpolila,
As much as we all love having members from all over the world, I can speak for only myself when I say that I do not speak Spanish and I think that out of nearly 1000 members, maybe only 3 or 4 speak it anough to effectively communicate.

I would love to know what your posts say, but other than the word "fucking" I cannot understand it.

Best,

Bill

Maybe cirerita can translate it for us. One sentence says he's a fucking fanatic, I think...

Geeky bookcase lust, yes, I know it's a problem... :cool:

"my wife makes me go to someone's house for a party. I look through their bookshelves. This let's me know if I will have anything in common to talk about. Buk, Kerouac & HST good; white supremacist Anne Coulter and Bill O'Reilly bad..."

that's just what I do too. what's worse is when people come to my house where there are literally shelves full of Bukowski, HST, Kerouac, Burroughs etc and they ignore them completely. they zero in on something like Howard Marks' "Mr Nice" and say that they liked it when they were a student or something.

mind you one friend I have, a London book-dealer and persistent shop-lifter in his past, has every single first edition of everything you can imagine. when I leave his place he actually frisks me ! which is quite sensible really, because I know exactly where he stole those Samuel Beckett books from in the first place.

he used to come out of Foyle's bookshop weighing about two stone more than when he went in.

Thanks for the great story. How many kilos or pounds is a "stone"?

i may have to reconsider marrying a bukowski collector - it's becoming more and more apparent what an expensive addiction this is!


i guess it's better than crack.

you can marry me, everybody knows I'm a xerox-kind-of-guy. I'm cheap! That doesn't sound very compelling, does it? ;)

thanks for the offer, but if collecting expensive editions of bukowski is his biggest downfall, then i think i've picked wisely ;)

Probably John Martin has the best collection. He did publish them after all! Linda had a greatcollection, of course, but that all went to the Huntington.

Montford sold his massive collection piece-meal, so that is not broken up and gone.

Of course, there are probably other large collectors that lay low. These are the ones that have millions and buy what they want, but are probably not known to many of us (maybe only a book bealer or two).

I am not sure how to post photographs damn it...you should see my copies of "erections ete" and " notes of a.."that I lent out to all my "frends" on first discovering the BUK in late 70s..falling apart and kids drawings all over! At least I got em back and always figured Buk would dig the look of em, Knowing they had been around!..we got to watch this unread look we anal retentives wear! rich g b

First things first:

Click this:
up yonder, if the picture is on the internet. If it ain't go host it over at
someplace like flickr.com.

The rest of the picture thing will work its way free from that tangle.

Now, on to the translation:

WoW ! You guys should see the collection I have!
Buk would've been proud of me. Ths stuff of his I have has drawings all over
it, it's dirty from use, and looks like I rolled around in my sleep with it while on
a 3 week drunk in Hollywood.

I'm just glad I got them back after I loaned them to my so-called-friends.
These books mean the world to me !
 
Father Luke..
Many thanks for the spot on traslation!..and sorry it took so long..
You know,writing works better for me when its by hand,old style..
most people know what I say then without traslation..I promise to keep workin at it!
Just receaved " The pleasures of the damned" and "Bohemien New Orleans" from the states
Oh Joy!

sweet jebus help me!

so, I was looking at my main bookcases and noticed I had some duplicates that I could get rid of and some books I didn't really need. so, yesterday I culled about 50 books from the cases. fine. but then I decided I needed to reorganize.

stupid.

here's where I am now.

I need to do the same. Been thinking about it for months now, but cant decide the proper way. Hardcover with hardcover? or both together like mjp. all black sparrow together? all books by and about Bukowski seperated? maybe organized by the release date? I can see that this is going to take much more thought.....

Must be something in the air.

My wife just announced (the way women will) that we are buying a new bookcase for the music room and that my Buks will move in there.

Makes sense actually because there is less sunlight and no cooking smells like there is in the current location.

More space means more latitude for pretentious display styles - bring it on!
