Ode to Bukowski....

“I don't like jail, they got the wrong kind of bars in there”
Charles Bukowski

Aw,Bukowski.Americas dirty poet.I do love him and I hope you do too.I've been reading a bit more of his writings lately.Reading is a lost art when you have 2 small children.Well...reading something other than the Cat in the Hat 10 times in a row that is.I often accept functioning off 3 hours of sleep to stay up until the wee small hours of the morning to get some adult literature in.By adult I mean non-nursery rhymes not like XXX rated!

I found some neat Bukowski items or Bukowski themed items on etsy that I thought I'd share with you all.

  1. I'm fan of Buko. He cames in 1978 in famous french tv show "Apostrophes". Since 32 years, each "collection of tv howlers" pass the vid ha ha ha fantastic !!!! The Great Buko in action !!! ha ha ha
    My fav are "general tales of the ordinary madness".

    Excellent idea for the necklace !!

  2. I am addicted to Bukowski! Have you seen "Born Into This"?..Amazing how I can be so attracted to such a dirty old man LOL

    p.s "The Most Beautiful Wowan in Town" is my favorite short story collection :)

  3. I love Bukowski. He's our small town hero. Even though he's major.

  4. I recently read about Bukowski and realized I hadn't read him and need to. Your post confirms this. Synchronicity.
