February 15, 2013 | By | Add a Comment

Bucky SinisterBucky Sinister is a poet, self-help author, and a comedian. He’s also a published journalist with focus on film reviews, and he’s written a few short stories. Erik Core interviews Bucky about his move from the mid-west to the Bay Area to hang out with the beat poets and punk rockers, his recovery from drugs and alcohol, his unconventional approach to writing self-help books, and his natural progression to the world of comedy. This is part two of two episodes.

Poetry: He counts nine chapbooks, and four books of poetry, and one album. Most of his poems are about drugs and alcohol.

Comedy: He currently participates in a weekly show at the Dark Room called The Business. Most of his jokes are about drugs and alcohol.

Self Help: He has a very unconventional take on the world of 12 Step recovery, which led to him writing two books, Get Up and Still Standing. He’s a staunch atheist but also a strong proponent of the higher power part of 12 Step, and doesn’t see a conflict there. All of the self help books are about drugs and alcohol.
