Do you have absolutely zero ideas for a book?
Or perhaps you just want to know how to properly use the little known literary trick, “ellipse-semi-colon style” (…;) properly in a sentence?
Then, here’s your man. But, fair warning: you probably don’t have the chops to get this dude to rep you.
This might be old news to some of you, but I just heard about this today. Apparently Levi’s has managed to marry Bukowski’s “The Laughing Heart” with a sixty second “film” — aka commercial designed to sell you cool. It’s playing on the pre-roll in theaters all over.

Recently re-reading “On the Road.” “On the Road” for me, like a lot of other kids, was one of those things, a secular bar-mitzpah like “Rocky Horror” or copping beer with a fake ID.
