  1. Filthy disgusting rat face paedophile. You should be ashamed of yourself for promoting this kiddy fiddling demon

  2. This is easily one of my favorite Ginsberg poems and i've never done LSD.

  3. I’m retired from the Navy. I fought in the war. Oef/oif I flew in support of it for over 12 years. After I retired I got cancer. I live in California. I found out that doctors do not have to treat you. I didn’t know that. It’s been 8 years of fighting to live all by myself. They tell me I should die for being part of the military. I’m being aborted. I need to move out of liberal hell California. They are the new gods, liberals. They’re going to destroy America.

  4. Man Ginsburg really milked it didn't he? Must have been great to be a beat when the hippies and freaks came along they became as big as rock stars.

  5. It speaks deeply to the triumph of the human spirit – and to the deep integrity, despite all his confused nonsense, of Buckley – that both men could come together in this gorgeous moment of celebrating the beauty of creation.

    We are, indeed, all one.

  6. He described all my acid trips and lucid day&night dreaming in one beautiful literary image. Does anyone see how pataphysics parallels dreamstate poetry?

  7. It's the LSD talking . . . wonderful word mechanics . . . and Buckley appreciated its complexity.

  8. conservatives have no heart nor ear for poetry their asses too tight..thus waste of time..!!!!

  9. How well Ginsberg read this poem, he seemed to really be taken back to the moment durring this reading.

  10. I love how Buckley and Ginsberg both acknowledge that it is okay for them to interrupt the poem, but they do it once, and then seem to realize that they are interrupting a very real moment. They never do it again and they never shake him from his intensity. Regardless what you think of Ginsberg, imagine being Buckley in that moment, having someone looking you in the face and saying those words. Phew! Buckley was lucky.

  11. Nobody like those guys anymore, Ginsberg, Burroughs, and Kerouac. Pioneers, and innovators of the 60's, 70's, 80's, and finally the 90's generation of musical inspiration, and all forms of artistic talent. What we see now, is inspired by whom? What came after these pioneers? No one, why? They all died at 27. Or died too young to stretch out they're charisma.

  12. I think a pink flyod album would of been better, if I was tripping I'd have to tell him STFU!!! Jesus!
