Cigarpipeman tells me that there is a batch of 6 letters and another handwritten missive on e-Bay up for auction at this very moment. At low prices. I guess the snipers will be lining up their shots soon.
Ah, computer letters. I could never warm up to those computer letters and poem manuscripts. $900 may turn out to be a good deal in the long run (the really long run), but I don't think I would have dropped that on those right now.
Ezio has agreed to email me scans of the letters when he receives them.
I'll post them when he does.
He says this is one of his favourite sites.
I say the same thing.
Well, we may never see those scans.
It's just under 60 days since Ezio bought my signed copy of the days run away... and he still hasn't received it yet.
He's starting to get (understandably) nervous and (less understandably) shitty with me.
Even suggesting I may not have shipped the book at all.
Obviously if the book is a no show he will tell me to shove the scans up my ass (not that he will let me have them to do that).
What does one do under the circumstances?
He asked for the book to be sent uninsured and with a declared value of only 50USD (to Italy :eek:).
There's no way in hell I'm giving him his $$$ back.
Am I evil?
Send EZIO this:
Carissimo Bukistosolo Ezio!
Allora, hai vinto quelle lettere di nostro meraviglioso ubriacone e cretino Hank. Che gioia! Sei veramente un campione di e-Bay. Un assassino!
Voglio chiederti una cosa, bravo stronzo. Puoi lasciare a noi poveri schiavi una veduta?
La Fraternita Bukistosolo Internazionale (FBI) vi ringrazia con un sacco di merda e una bottiglia di smegma.
Can someone translate into english? I don't speak Italian. I have no hands.
MULLINAX is calling Ezio a champion of eBay, an "Assassin!", and offering
smegma and home made honey wine to him and asking for a glimpse of the
letters, perhaps one or two, to appease the FBI (The Fraternal International
Bukistosolo - It doesn't translate well. . . . but I think you get the gist of it,
he is appealing on our behalf . . .)
Then he calls Bukowski a few nice things.
