Thanks to one of our dearest fans, a bunch of documentaries were recently created on ToobBox.com. At night I’ve been watching random ones before I go to sleep. Last night I watched Born Into This – a documentary about the late Charles Bukowsi. His legacy jives well with the spirit of ToobBox.com, mostly because we has an Angelino and one of those eccentric freaks that most of us love.
A passage from his poem Born Into This particularly hit home with me:
born into this
into hospitals which are so expensive that it’s cheaper to die
into lawyers who charge so much it’s cheaper to plead guilty
into a country where the jails are full and the madhouses closed
into a place where the masses elevate fools into rich heroes
Damn! That shit is so true! Even 40 years later. Ain’t nothing changed. Actually it’s probably worse.
But enough of the doom and gloom. Click here to watch this documentary on L.A.’s most famous author.
