Charles Bukowski, the Poet Laureate of American Lowlife, would have celebrated his 94th birthday tomorrow, almost certainly with some beer and cigarettes. (The very stuff that makes it difficult to reach 94 — but I digress.) To mark this occasion, the folks behind the Blank on Blank animations previously featured on Open Culture have created a video called “Charles Bukowski Uncensored.” The video animates outtakes from candid conversations that took place between Bukowski, his wife, and the producer of the recording session for the 1993 audio CD, Run With the Hunted. It’s a little something to hold you over until the Blank on Blank team returns with new animations this fall. If you’re wondering, Bukowski died in 1994, at age 73.
