Bluebird – A poem by Charles Bukowski

There’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
you want to blow my book sales in

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
and we sleep together like
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do

Goodbye David

Goodbye David

Look up here, I’m in Heaven! 

I’ve got scars that can’t be seen 

I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen, 

Everybody knows me now 

Look up here, man, I’m in danger! 

I’ve got nothing left to lose 

I’m so high, it makes my brain whirl 

Dropped my cellphone down below 

Ain’t that just like me?! 

By the time I got to New York 

I was living like a king 

Then I used up all my money 

I was looking for your ass 

This way or no way 

You know I’ll be free 

Just like that bluebird 

Now, ain’t that just like me? 

Oh, I’ll be free 

Just like that bluebird 

Oh, I’ll be free 

Ain’t that just like me?


Goodbye David you will be missed


Lee Rosevere music

I really like the music form Lee Rosevere. Made some creative stuff with his work that is under creative common license and can be found on Free Music Archive. Genre: Dance/Electronica, Ambient, Experimental music.

FMA states that “Canadian artist Lee Rosevere (pron. rose-veer) has been riding on the crest of the free digital music wave for about as long as the web has been able to provide music files. Rosevere is a veteran artist on many netlabels and even operates his own quality and low key free netlabel, Happy Puppy Records and also has a few things on CDbaby. He works in the radio industry by day” His music has appeared on websites, radio programs, podcasts, and short films. He works professionally in radio, and has won a New York Award in sound design.

But of course it’s about his music. So without further ado here are some tracks:

The brain that wouldn’t die

Created a remix of the movie The brain that wouldn’t die with music from Ian Alex Mac.

Published 1962

The Brain That Wouldn’t Die – Full Version (1962)

Dr. Bill Cortner has been performing experimental surgery on human guinea pigs without authorization and against the advice of his father, also a surgeon. When Bill’s fiance Jan Compton is decapitated in an automobile accident, he manages to keep her brain alive. He now needs to find a new body for his bride-to-be and settles on Doris Powell, a glamor model with a facial disfigurement. Jan meanwhile doesn’t want to continue her body-less existence and calls upon the creature hidden in the basement, one of Bill Cortner’s unsuccessful experiments, to break loose.
