Blog Notes: Categories Still Broken

September 23, 2007

WordPress Support hasn’t replied to my last email about Categories being all screwed up here.

I tried to add a new Category today.

It wouldn’t show up in the blog list of Categories.

I sent WordPress Support another email…

They Want To Erase Bukowski’s Bungalow

September 23, 2007

5124 De Longpre Ave

Charles Bukowski lived at 5124 De Longpre from 1963 to 1974. It was during this time that many pivotal events occured in his writing career, namely; the beginning of his partnership with Black Sparrow Press, the writing and publishing of his first novel Post Office, his first public poetry reading, and the “research” which would later become his novel Women. It was also during this period that Bukowski begain to attain notoriety as a writer, so much so that one neighbor describes his having to sneak out the back door to avoid admirers lingering in the courtyard. The apartment is one of the last vestiges of Bukowski’s Los Angeles – stark, honest, and sometimes beautiful. It’s one of the only places he describes in his books, so noteworthy for their evocative sense of place, that remain faithfull to the time.

Currently the bungalow apartments at 5124 De Longpre stand empty and boarded up, ensconced in a chain-link fence. The property has been listed on Craig’s List as ready for demolition. We are currently embarking on a campaign to have these apartments declared a historic-cultural landmark before the property is sold and demolished. It’s a race against time, but we feel that one of Los Angeles’s finest writers and native sons deserves to take his place in the pantheon of our city’s rich and fascinating history.

Bastards.


Band: Venomentality On Radio Tonight Sunday September 23 2007 At 10PM EDST

September 23, 2007

Go to Albany Edge’s audio stream to hear it live tonight!

Warning: This sites requires registration to access the stream (stupid, stupid, stupid!). Ordinarily, I wouldn’t blog something because of that (stupid, stupid, stupid!) requirement, but I think it’s worth the effort to hear Venomentality tonight. Do it early in case there are other requirements relating to compatible media player and/or codec.
