Johnny Depp + Charles Bukowski

Oh yeah! My favorite writer is in the news today, even though he died years ago. And it's for a cool project... Johnny Depp is starring in an animated movie for grown ups, "How The Dead Love", based on four of Charles Bukowski's (my hero) short stories. Oh joy... what bliss!!!

*My Fave Words From The Master...

when God created love he didn't help most
when God created dogs He didn't help dogs
when God created plants that was average
when God created hate we had a standard utility
when God created me He created me
when God created the monkey He was asleep
when He created the giraffe He was drunk
when He created narcotics He was high
and when He created suicide He was low

when He created you lying in bed
He knew what He was doing
He was drunk and He was high
and He created the mountains and the sea and fire at the same time

He made some mistakes
but when He created you lying in bed
He came all over His Blessed Universe.

-Charles Bukowski

(genius... pure genius!)
