The Charles Bukowski Tapes of Mid-1980′s Hollywood

We love Charles Bukowski. Love him. But we found this clip of The Charles Bukowski Tapes documentary and it’s the writer being driven around Hollywood in the late 1980′s. You can see a Pac Bell truck and lots of places that have come and gone since then. Note they are in what we now call Thai Town (which is also Little Armenia according to signs) and there’s no Thai Elvis to be found.
