F16 - With Apologies to Allen Ginsberg by jbwarner86 F16 - With Apologies to Allen Ginsberg by jbwarner86
Another Forever 16 from 2005, this one dated April 17. Donkey Kong Jungle Beat was the newest GameCube title at the time, and just looking at that DK Bongos controller, this idea practically flew out of my head fully-formed. Excerpts from “Howl”, of course, are the copyright of Allen Ginsberg and not me, as if that isn’t obvious.

I always thought Steve would be more a fan of Hunter Thompson, to be honest.

Showed this to my American Literature professor on my iPad, and she asked me to send her the link so she could see it better, but she found this funny and awesome. She's kind of a Ginsberg fan, and we read "Howl" for class.

Seriously? You're going to report him for using an actual quote from the actual poem, which was written in the 1950s by the way. Wow... True Ginsberg was white, not African-American, but given the language of the 50s, there is no reason for the poem to be censored. "Howl" is literature, and as a English Lit major, it's sad to think that someone can't understand how even vulgar language has value in literature. Maybe you should read the poem before you make threats...

Really? Just because I expressed distaste over your reasoning to report someone? At least if I go from here, I have my art and writings to put somewhere else. You can't censer something that has been proven by literature professors to be literature for fifty or more years.

No you don't. When they review the report, they'll look over my comment history; and since I've never made a racist comment, they won't do anything. If anything, you've just made me want to report YOU for harassment.

I got the DK Bongos pretty cheap at a local Goodwill. Still need a Donkey Kong game for them though.

So Steve read "Howl" because he saw it it in "The Howling"?

I beat DK Jungle Beat, actually. And the bongoes were a neat gimmick, if not for making the whole game rather expensive.
