Awesome. I wish I hadn't just used up all my spending money on Absinthe.

No, not really. I do wish I had another hundred right now though. Congrats on another triumph David!
Rimbaud
Can't wait! Congrats, Oxy!
Kirk
I would love to have an autographed copy that says to the effect of : ( "totally deleted").
So,
send me one now you fucker,
I'll work it out with you later.
Absomphe
What Rimmy said! chickawow.gif
Kirk
Oh, sure, forget what I said.
Absomphe
As if.

It's just that I'd never think of calling Oxy a fucker in public. biggrin.gif
Kirk
And yet
with no disrespect;
he is (after all ) the uber fucker.
Absomphe
Fuckin' A!
Bruno Rygseck
Congratulations, this is wonderful news! Ordered! w00t2.gif
Grim
I'd really like to order this, and a copy of the Duplais facsimile, but last time I ordered the latter, the order got refunded…

Should I even try, Oxygénée?
Oxygenee
Yeah, give it a shot, you never know.
Grim
Awww heart.gif … what a mensch!
Absinthia
Books to read, shelves to fill;
books on booze just fit the bill.

Ordered!
Rimbaud
When do we get to see an image of this puppy?

Even just the cover would suffice…
Oxygenee
Soon, very soon…

After 1977, I did.

Nothing personal, Frank.

I think that cover says plenty.

Kind of speaks to you, does it? What were you saying about shallow?

Let me sleep on it, baby baby let me sleep on it!

Can we ban Wild Bill Turkey?
thegreenimp
No need to ban Wild Bill, just have him give Oxy a Brazilian Wax. sleepy.gif

No matter what I do, I can not get that image out of my head. It is burned into my mind.

I need a drink.

There was a moment Oxy and I shared on that Boveresse trip last year. It was a night in Paris when I had to delivery a very important package to his hotel room. I caught him by surprise. From my vantage point I could only see that he was just out of the shower. The door was opened only wide enough to hand the package through. I quickly delivered the item. He said "Thank you!" I said something clumsy, something awkward. Yet the message was clear. This is Paris. We knew it by the look in each others eyes. Except we both knew she was waiting for me. This Henry Miller moment wasn't meant for Oxy and I. We both knew the moment was lost. Yet he, always the gentleman, took the wise initiative to put away those wild unbridled impulses by yelping a quick "CHEERS!" and pushing the door shut with his still dripping body. We both rode away with honor intact.

And then I banged her good. Never looking back.



*Thank you Bill, any questions I might have had, are now answered. See, my mother had a compact mirror with that image on it. Father, oh my father…
Steve
We'll always have Paris.
thegreenimp
Yes, they will.

Uh, you guys…
Donnie Darko
If I were you I'd ban everyone.
Jaded Prole
If he was you-know-who, he would.

Pfffthahaha!

Ordered… just wish you took Discover.
OMG_Bill
Ordered!

Cheers!

Maybe redundant to post this as many FV members probably have received the VAM newsletter, anyhow:

Have the first editions shipped? I can't wait to read it!
Rimbaud
I was just wondering that. Last I heard, ship date was middle of November (which is about now).
Rimbaud
Hmmm…pre-ordered mine back in August, shipping was to be mid-November.

Still no sign of my copy…
Absinthia
No sign of mine either, buddy. Since it just so happens to be that my orders always arrive the same day I start asking about them, the book better be there by now wink.gif
Shabba53
If they shipped using the UK equivalent of 'media mail', it could very likely be several more weeks. Even if it was shipped on time.
Rimbaud
I fucking hate media mail. Shit takes forever!
Steve
I think the last book I ordered from Oxy actually shipped from the U.S., but it was still kind of slow because of media mail.
Kirk
My postman said they didn't have media mail option anymore
Steve
Your postman is full of it: Media Mail
Kirk
Not surprising in an area where they have to pipe in sunlight.
Everytime I mail something to the same place, they use a different price and protocol.
