“All The Way” – A Charles Bukowski Poem (Clip)


Bukowski ftw – das ist ja klar! Bin soeben über einen wahnsinnig guten Clip gestolpert, “All The Way” basiert auf Bukowskis “Roll The Dice”-Werk und wurde in Andalusien/Spanien gedreht. Gesprochen wird der Text von Tom O’Bedlam, die Musik kommt von Tony Anderson und bei dem Schauspieler handelt es sich um Imre Tigchelaar. Unter dem Clip haben wir noch einmal den Text für Euch, zum Mitlesen und Auswendiglernen:

“Directed, filmed and edited by Willem Martinot – Based on the poem “Roll The Dice” by Charles Bukowski – Voice: Tom O’Bedlam – Music: Tony Anderson – Shot in Andalusia, Spain – Actor and assistant: Imre Tigchelaar – Inspired by Salomon Ligthelm”




roll the dice

if you’re going to try, go all the way.
otherwise, don’t even start.

if you’re going to try, go all theway.
this could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

go all the way.
it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,

isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with

do it, do it, do it.
do it.

all the way
all the way.

you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter, its
the only good fight
there is.

– Charles Bukowski
