Quote from: uffeviking on April 09, 2007, 03:16:51 PMOf course it's good, otherwise I would not have read it a few minutes ago. And it's good because it's not about War, but Peace! It's Allen Ginsberg's Howl.This afternoon I spent less than hour watching my lasted DVD purchase: An Elegy for Allen Ginsberg and the next logical step was to reread his 'Howl', prominently mentioned and intelligently discussed by William F. Buckley, Philip Glass and many other of his friends.

My original idea was to read it a couple of months ago, so that I could attend the MOMA screening of Fassbinder's saga which is going on right now. Well I couldn't and thus am not attending the screening
Quote from: uffeviking on April 11, 2007, 03:08:07 PMMy mouth still open! Fassbinder's Alexander Platz is finally in a video form? My video supplier and I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for it to come out. If MOMA can show it, a commercially available DVD can't be far behind. I am suffering with you because you had to miss the screening!
Quote from: uffeviking on April 11, 2007, 03:03:58 PMI didn't even know there is such a thing as a 'censored' version of Howl! Surprised you could get any intelligent meaning out of it, but some is better than nothing! Those non-chain used book stores are full of treasures, and I am sure your wad of money was sell spent!

Quote from: uffeviking on April 09, 2007, 03:23:45 PMWho are they? The Fuggers? Their family started in the 16th century and still some of them around, but I didn't know they were in the recording business!
