Must have been one of the first places on the net ever where you could find Bukowskis work, no?
It was. Well, it was one of the first places on the web, period, so we won by default. ;) When it went up in September of 1995 (on the mjptv.com domain), there were fewer than 20,000 web sites in the world.

I don't know when realbeer.com put up their Bukowski page, but it was also very early. That may be the first Bukowski page I recall seeing outside of smog.net or mjptv.com.

smog.net, real beer and a site called Anti Hero Art were the only places with significant Bukowski content. It was exciting to find those places. Seems so long ago.

Mixed Nuts

https://thisisnotatest.com/mixed-nuts/

Happy new year, here are some mixed nuts. And, since a balanced diet is important, have a little helping of 9/11, Black Lives Matter, trolling the aisles of CVS, the mathematics of grocery shopping, human history, deadly peanut allergies, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Che, Celiac disease, The New England Journal of Medicine, the most kick-ass 70 year old the world has ever seen, unemployment insurance, working at McDonald's, Corrine Burns, and lunatics.

Nuts raise a lot of questions. You're a nut! Ha! All nuts matter! I'm listening right at this moment in the new year. Who could imagine? Laughing my ass off. P.s. Sounds like you have a cold. Drink more o.j. Or don't. Dude, you just keep on going on & on about nuts...and no mention of deez nutz.

You got to keep the Newcastle upon Tyne tea service, the Sharper Image foot bath, and the Pomeranian. I'm not sure what else you want.

Who sneezed in my arpeggio?

Let's get right to it, shall we? Or rather, let's not get right to it, let's start this one with a poem. Then let's talk about mixtapes, sliders, memories, smells, silence that isn't really silence, limitations, your mother's shoes, tweens, soccer moms, Young Adult fiction, the Sundance film festival, veal, Hindu gods, Springsteen on Broadway, the working man, Sons Of Anarchy, U100, snow globes, Dr. Seuss, SWAT teams, and insurrection.
