Default Bukowski

I hope I'm that cool when I'm sitting in my incontinence, he's my idol.
I guess you could say his words flow like Rakim's but Charles isn't a negro.
Discuss him and his work/anything connected to the ****.

Bukowski is the shit, he's one of my favorite authors. I think Post Office is my favorite book by him. "Frankly, I was horrified by life, at what a man had to do simply in order to eat, sleep, and keep himself clothed. So I stayed in bed and drank. When you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn’t have you by the throat." <3

Post Office, Factotum, Women and Ham on Rye are all excellent books.

Factotum was made into a decent movie as well, with Matt Dillon (i think) playing lead.

I LOVE Bukowski. My favorite author/poet laureate of skid row of all time . Adore his short stories - Tales of Ordinary Madness & The Most Beautiful Woman in Town are fantastic. The novels... well, I don't have words for those. Just such a REAL guy with a REAL and loud, and brutally honest voice in a world full of such bull****. <3

Didn't like Dillion in Factotum... see, they portray Buk there by hinting at a "scum of the earth" mentality. But Buk thought he was great. He was the "best loser he could be." I much prefered Rourke's version of Buk in Barfly. One of my favorite movies, actually. Buk actually had a wee cameo in one of the scenes in the bar, he'd be the German guy with the mostly-empty bottle .

What's even better is... ha, I am no more in posession of any of his books because, I lent them all to drunks.

I just read Hollywood a week or two ago. It's my first Bukowski. I really liked it, but I don't think it was a good choice introduction to him, as it was written so late in his life. I really want to read more, but Hollywood was the only Bukowksi at my library and I'm broke.
