Four Charles Bukowski Poems Animated

Bradley Bell: “The Laughing Heart – Charles Bukowski: A Short Film” (YouTube)

Spoken by Tom Waits.

“You’ll find Bradley Bell’s interpretation of “The Laughing Heart,” a poem that advises its readers not to let their lives “be clubbed into dank submission,” to “be on the watch,” for “there are ways out.” “You can’t beat death,” Bukowski writes, “but you can beat death in life, sometimes.” In Bell’s short, these words come from the mouth of the also famously dissolution-chronicling singer-songwriter Tom Waits, certainly Bukowski’s most suitable living reader (and one who, all told, comes second only to the man himself). Only fitting that one inspiring creator delivers the work of another — in the sort of labor of enthusiasm that, too, will inspire its audience to create.” — Open Culture

Jonathan Hodgson: The Man with the Beautiful Eyes HD (YouTube)

A gang of kids find a strange house with an overgrown garden where they play. Only once do they meet the man who lives there, a dead-beat alcoholic with a free and easy spirit who welcomes them. The children see him as a romantic character in stark contrast to their neurotically house proud parents.

Guilherme C.: Roll the Dice – Charles Bukowski [animação] HD (YouTube)

“Animação 2D baseada no texto “Roll The Dice” de Charles Bukowski: Jogue o Dado Se você vai tentar, vá com tudo Senão, nem comece. Se você vai tentar, vá com tudo Isso pode significar perder namoradas, esposas, parentes, empregos e talvez a cabeça. Vá com tudo. Isso pode significar ficar sem comer por 3 ou 4 dias Pode significar passar frio num banco de praça Pode significar cadeia, menosprezo, insultos, isolamento. Isolamento é o presente todos os outros são um teste da sua resistência de quanto você realmente quer fazer isso. E você vai fazer Apesar da rejeição e dos piores infortúnios E isso será melhor do que qualquer coisa que você possa imaginar. Se você vai tentar, vá com tudo. Não há outro sentimento como esse. Você ficará sozinho com os deuses e as noites irão flamejar como fogo. Faça, Faça, Faça Vá com tudo, por todos os caminhos Você cavalgará a vida até a gargalhada perfeita essa é a única boa luta que existe.”
