I think the sunglasses in the VW pic above is one by Montfort and was a print with the Free Thought paper, Bukowski issue.

I have the Free Thought Buk issue but not the print...I believe there were numbered and not numbered copies?

Previously unknown picture of the side of Bukowski's head, 1987.

Taken the same day as the Penn/Madonna pic in the photos section of the site.

I always wonder if it ever happend that somebody came up to Madonna and she's expecting they want an autograph or a photo or something but they only say to her: "HOW WAS IT TO MEET CHARLES BUKOWSKI??!"

I got rid of the Christy-Powell thing years ago, so I can't check it, but I don't think the picture is in the Buk book.

Most certainly it is. And by the look on his face, one might wonder what was the fate of the photographer. By the way, Life and Death in the Charity Ward is among his best short stories. Told with dark humor and aplomb regarding what weren't his best days. It's right up there with All the Assholes... and Confessions...

And Ponder, that scratch and sniff shot is indeed in The Buk Book, Musings on Charles Bukowski, by Christy and Powell, along with a few others from the same night (as well as some playing the piano drunk photos that might have spawned a book title).

Still wondering if anyone knows where to locate the photo I'm using as my picture.
I need the one where the forehead isn't cut off.
I'd be a huge help if anyone knew where to find that.
Advanced thanks.

Thanks, Digney.

I think that's the picture that goes on screen while George John Martin speaks about Buk's idea of earning for a living at the track(s).

GREAT Photo. I love the hole in the wall. Anyone know if that is to bleed the radiator? Do they even have radiators in LA?
