I was reading Charles Bukowski's selected letters (vol. 4) and this quote stood out, it made me think of aftershows in L.A.
From Bukowski to Gerald Locklin:
"That after-premiere gathering was one of the worst. I felt mutilated and de-balled. There was a heavy nothingness in the air, black, stuffy. Barbet described it best when he walked up to me and said 'God, these people are horrible! I feel like my whole body is covered with shit!' That cheered me, and soon after I talked Linda into
getting out of there. And when I leave a place with free drinks, Lock, you know that place is minus zero plus zero = a nothingness worse than can be described."
Last night we watched the Metallica documentary. Those guys need to quit. The whole songwriting and producing and recording process was so arduous and uninspired and they sounded like Christian metal.
