Now that the Bukowski material is all gone from smog there’s probably no one here to read this. Ah, well. Maybe you’ll all show up on the groovy new Bukowski forum and we’ll get to know each other better.
Forums are tricky business. I ran one on smog for a while – actually I tried one here a couple of times, but it never panned out. I think there were too many artists on the site and the thing never had a focus. I have learned over the years that for every few hundred visitors you have, only one will leave a comment, send an email, make a forum post, etc.
But on the other hand, a new forum with a dozen really active posters can really take off. So we’ll see what happens over there. I hope it doesn’t just wither and die, because it was a bitch to integrate into that new site design.
So come on over to the forum. Even if you’ve never heard of Bukowski, you can still make fun of all the Bukowski geeks over there — like me.

It’s a windy night here on the point. Friday afternoon the radio and TV stations were on STORM WATCH! Must suck to have to stand there in front of a camera trying to instill fear into hundreds of thousands of people when your storm doesn’t materialize.
