Lou and I have the same birthday, that said here is my fav.


I wonder what the esteemed directors of the library would have thought of him when he was alive? It’s amazing how death makes even punk rockers into sacred icons.


I think you’re underestimating the number of punks and other weirdos in places like universities and public libraries… :wink:


NYPL? It’s the only place really.

The notebook doodles reminded me of his Kung Fu cover.


I’m a bit curious about “The Secret of Hung Men” myself.
I… I’m not gonna’ google it though.
