I also love Bukowski. I use to read him religiously. He wrote this (before social media):

"now it’s computers and more computers

and soon everybody will have one,

3-year-olds will have computers

and everybody will know everything

about everybody else

long before they meet them

and so they won’t want to meet them.

nobody will want to meet anybody

else ever again

and everybody will be

a recluse

like I am now."
In the multi-dimensional scheme, you'll know what I mean- J Frusciante

Bukowski had Leonard covered. Leonard comes from an exalted, privileged place that appeals to the intellectual. Bukowski came up from the gutter and saw the human condition for what it is and sugar coated nothing, called it as he saw it with exacting truth. I like both but i feel Bukowski relates better to the masses.

You might find this link to a Tom Russell song/Bukowski poem interesting: ‘Crucifix in a Death Hand.’

...I love the film adaptation of Barfly (1987), especially soundtrack and how Barbet Schroeder included classic music (for example Beethoven https://musescore.com/hmscomp/lvb-piano ... -no_-4-1st) into the movie.

If you want people to hear Beethoven's absolutely amazing piano concerto, please give them a link to a real musician, not a computerised MIDI-file. Beethoven's music requires soul, thus needs to be played by human beings capable of expressing the most profound emotion through sensitive and nuanced musical performances. Here's a great place to start, with the sublime Mitsuko Uchida on piano -- it's just breathtaking!
