    Default My name is Jeroen and I'm a Bukaholic...

    Good morning all. I tend to avoid clubs who accept me as a member, yet here I am and I'll have a look around. Meanwhile I launched my own website Bukowski, Beer & Beethoven last weekend, on which people can explore classical music through the works of Charles Bukowski. The site contains 50 excerpts from his poems related to classical music and 50 Spotify-link to 50 recommended recordings. Feel free to check it out. > http://bukowskibeerbeethoven.com

    Greetings,
    Jeroen

    I think I have now read most of the list. Have to say this is a fresh and good approach for evangelizing CM. I don't agree with everything (I'm an old fart, at least mentally), but I can handle it... I'll definitely put this forward. Good job!

    Welcome, bukowskibeerbeethoven!

    Very interesting website and really good concept, Bukowski is one of my favourite writers, too. I recently read one story from the collection "Tales of Ordinary Madness" where Charles was fascinated by Brahms.

    Excellent job.

    Welkommen, Bukowski/etc! Yes, I remember Bukowski mentioning Dvorak in a book…his books are fun to read, and I want to be just like him when I grow up! Such an inspiring man...

    Welcome Jeroen. As a Media student I praise the design of your site. I don't have the time to read it but I should take a look. ^^

    Welcome! I knew a Bukowski fanatic back in 1974, and he was my introduction to his poetry. That's back when Buk was still with Linda King. I've lost touch with his works since then, but I just checked back in on Bukowski a couple months ago and was surprised to see how much of life happened to him since that time. And how many women. He seems to be more popular now than back in 1974, when he was a cult figure.

    So your site sounds interesting. I'll pop over.
