Never Blame the Booster
For What the Sucker Does

TERRY SOUTHERN INTERVIEW
John Cally, who was a very hip Producer at MGM - he produced The Loved One that I worked on, and he became the President of Warner Brothers for a brief time, so he was in this heavy decision-making position, and said, "Well now it's time to do Blue Movie." He was convinced that the first studio to come out with a quality full length film showing erection and penetration, using stars, would go over the top. "It'll be like Gone With The Wind," he kept saying. Super enthusiastic about it. So he got Mike Nichols to direct. And since John was practically living with Julie Andrews at the time, he was able to get her of all people, as the girl. John's diabolical genius envisioned Mary Poppins getting banged for the world.

SPLASH
by Charles Bukowski

the illusion is that you are simply
reading this poem.
the reality is that this is
more than a poem.
this is a beggar's knife.
this is a tulip.
this is a soldier marching
through Madrid.
this is you on your
death bed.
this is Li Po laughing
underground.
this is not a god-damned poem.
this is a horse asleep.
a butterfly in your brain.
this is the devil's circus.
you are not reading this on a page.
the page is reading you.
feel it?
it's like a cobra
it's a hungry eagle
circling the room.

this is not a poem.
poems are dull.
they make you sleep.

these words force you
to a new madness.

you have been blessed,
you have been pushed
into a blinding area of light.

the elephant dreams
with you now.
the curve of space
bends and laughs.

you can die now.
you can die now
as people were meant to die:
great,
victorious,
hearing the music,
being the music
roaring

- Charles Bukowski -

"Dick Lit"

"dick lit" is here to acknowledge the good, bad and ugly that goes with it, as it celebrates every young boy's quest to get off the next  time, and every old man's quest to get off one more time, before there is no time left to get off on...
