2. The Town and the City.

At the secondhand and antiquarian bookshop where I was hired in the mid-eighties, during my first week on the job, the owner handed me a stack of books to put on the dollar shelf that included a pretty nice copy of this book without a dust jacket. I said, "ummmmm... you might want to reconsider putting this out for a buck."

He sold it for $500 a day or two later.

7. A friend of mine had a rare copy of "Fahrenheit 451" (I think it was with asbestos cover)

and in 2003 or 2004, needing cash, he asked his friend Harlan Ellison if he knew anyone who might want to buy it.
Harlan told him that he'd get back to him.
Next day, Harlan called him back & told him that Ray Bradbury would buy it for $500.
(It might have been $600)
It was right around the 50th anniversary of Fahrenheit 451.

I've met Crumb numerous time, but he's so damn socially inept and private, I never really got to know him. It wasn't until I saw Terry Zwigoff's film, Crumb, that I discovered why.

The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers was Gilbert Shelton's creation, no?

63. The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers was done by Gilbert Shelton

(One of my all-time favorite comic book series)

I, too, watched the doc "Crumb" and it depressed me.
Especially when he visited his older brother Charles in that flea-bag hotel.
It seems to me that Crumb, who was wealthy by that time, could have helped his brother out somehow...like giving him some dough for a nice apartment or something.
(His brother Charles committed suicide before the film was released)

64. There's a lot of Would have, Could have with Charles

He WAS helped as much as he would allow it, but even by the sixties, he was to totally broken. It is what it is.

Maxon was the one that blew me away. Making a living sitting on a bed of nails, and that three day body flossing? Apparently his crazy artwork was discovered and started selling after the film was released.


And the sisters. I can understand why they refused to be filmed, but I always wonder about the story they could have told.


It's sad how a fucked up dominating ex-Marine can totally fuck up a family!

I need to believe I would have remember any exchanges between Robert and Charles, but with my Swiss cheese brain these days....

I do know he refused to acknowledge the dentures that he was given. I'm not privy to how that went down, but I understand Charles was Hellbent on traveling his own path, alone.

He also stated that "no drug worth taking should be sold for money."

Some of his other plans were to rename Aspen to "Fat City" and tear up all the asphalt in the city center, replacing it with sod.
