  1. "Most people would rather die than think. In fact, many do." We're tracking you down like a hunted dog, Ding-Dong. Amazing how self-fulfilling prophecies still manage to work, even when the person is not who they propose to be. You thought it, and now you own it, shit-for-brains. But let's not ignore the basics. Cowardice, for one, my ding-ding-dong. No balls doesn't work in a street fight. And it works that way especially well when you go to start one. Weak. Very, very weak. I wonder if It is either A: Sleeping B: Ran, or C: Is going to the tribal counsel for advice. rde Expect More of the Same
  2. These personal attacks just have to stop. rde Waiting for the lightning bolt. It would be better than more sniffy, effed-up logic and lifeless prose.
  3. I have tired of the Russell character. Oh, I thought of bringing it to this shit-spike with interesting juxtapositions of BR quotes against a person that, consciously<---either a keyword or otherwise chose that mask before starting all this. That would have been fun, but it just isn't enough for me. You have to have some standards. "After all, we are Professionals." Anyway, I am borrowing something I was using for other purposes. I will now switch over to, when referring the the BR entity, as "Ding-Dong." Maybe use the hyphen, whatever. Here is the new battle theme. Just for now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbYtqAWDF2U rde Oh, you touch my tralala
  4. Hmmm. Interesting, MSK. All possible. Good bird-dog work! Starting to get the words. So now, one of the lead riffs this punk uses (statistically, from what I have read) is the argument from authority one. I do believe they even violated that once, but it is all so full of goo I could be incorrect. Either way, it's a comin'. Don't challenge a bunch of natural researchers. INTERMISSION (including mild prophesy @ around 1:27):
  5. I just changed my avatar to Bertrand Russell. Maybe that was one of the (many) things that annoyed me about this person. I remember the one time I really had to go to Jail. I had read a great deal of BR before. In this, I managed to get past the tumble, and I spent my time there reading "The History of Western Philosophy." Might as well do something, no? But I digress. Maybe we should all change our avatars to BR. I don't know much about this particular Richard Martin, and I will not accuse unfairly, but it seems, between what I just read of his work, and the history, that it is a definite possibility. Apologies in advance (but if it is true, you got Problems, Big Boy: Big Problems). What would make a man do such a thing as to so thoroughly compromise his credibility, such as it is? Someone ought to ask him. From what MSK says, there is a bit of (and I come to hate this word used around here) "evidence" that compels it. If it is so, he is definitely slipping his game. Loyalties do strange things to people. You never know where a person is in real-time, vs. how you remember their past. I have seen people mutate in odd fashions. More digression, but I still maintain that it is a very sad thing when someone masks their identity; that is only done in very unique situations, and even then it comes to question. I guess people lose their kung fu sometimes. I hope it is not so but it is starting to stink. I smell the winds of shit. The thing to do for starters would be look for turn-phrases, certain types of rhythm patterns, etc.; generally, what their "flow," and breadth and depth typically look like. Writers (at least real ones) eventually develop a unique flow and style--it can be I.D.'d with a bit of work, annoying as that is to do. If, and I just say if (because the possibility exists, esp. when dealing with those who work very hard at masking, or, more likely, have developed some kind of fucked up pathology) this is true, it will reveal itself to anyone that studies writing style. Another thing I notice about this is what appears to be a "run-to" action. Meaning, when, er, "Bert," here has been hit with a shit bomb, he has, in his reply, manifested something that looks like he went back to his handlers. It is a tell when someone has new stuff that just came in--hard to manage into the regular flow. Often, the kind of information that, had they remembered or had prior, would have appeared earlier, either directly, or in their general authority of style. Informed, call it. Informed of shit or gold, but still informed. rde Hey Bertie, You Shoulda Never Let Them Take THAT pic, it is gnarly.
  6. GHS I think we just posted near at once. A number of intersects. The best way for this person to ever redeem them self would be to come clean now. In the end, that is always the best. But that rarely happens. rde
  7. The work reeks of student. Just about anyone who has an invested history in studying intellectual forums (and, more importantly, investing the work that goes with the subject matters) is able to see what this kind of writing is about. It is sloppy, free-floating, elusive, and limited even as prose. It is very poor writing of its own accord, much less having any philosophical, logical back to it. It is the work of a disturbed amateur. Combine that with the very-poorly executed (and pointless, dishonest) anonymity, and there you have it. Misplaced loyalty will do strange things to a person, I suppose. Especially, one who is challenged in terms of emotional intelligence. Even the works of most dedicated hacks have more to offer, at times. I stay away from writing technical philosophy, because I do not enjoy writing it (and this person doesn't even really approach true technical writing), but I sure know what the real thing looks like when I see it. As a matter of fact, with a little work, most times I even understand it. This is more like throwing a few shitbombs on the wall. And above all, never staying on the point of the debate, the counter. Hack, hack, hack. To hide. Why would a person hide? Hide, and send out what is clearly hack work? rde Someone Needs A Support Group. Or Maybe Just Good Meds
  8. Yeah. I just couldn't buy into the Phil thing--as far as I know he has never participated in the Truly Nefarious Shit. I was waiting around for MSK to run down the address lines. This is not just the work of a coward, but a fucking stupid coward. Keep it up, Ace. You're doing all the work for us. All that silly spy crap just to smear that kind of poopy on the wall? Head full of bad wires, creep.
  9. Where's Bertrand? That is some of the goopiest stuff I've seen in a very long time. Yet, at the same time very limited scope-wise in terms of philosophical buzz words--a tendency to repeat what appears to be a very limited lexicon. Small tool bag. For the record, I'd be surprised if that were Phil. Disappointed, really. Oh, it has some of that pedantic snarkiness, no doubt about it, but still . . . I don't see the motivation. And, he would have had to actually do quite a bit of trial work to reanimate as this creature. Maybe I have missed something. I've seen Phil do a lot of bizarre shit, sniffy shit, all manner of Phil-crobatics, but not something like this. If he really has this in him, I've definitely not seen it out of him before. It almost looks like more than one person is writing this--really does! It's got that kitchen sink dealio going on. rde Show Yourself, O Great One.
  10. Earlier, Rich mentioned my distinctive style. Well, the above is a good example of my style, especially during my earlier years. Readers of ATCAG will find many similar constructions in that book. When Wendy isn't plagiarizing, she doesn't write like this at all. Ghs I have to defend my turf every day because where I live is attached to one of the most buck-ass wild trailer parks on the planet. Overkill? Believe me, there is something to be said for it. Oh yeah, it's annoying and requires a certain kind of patience. Some days I just want to stop and go smoke dope, watch Roku, whatever. But you have to answer with the thunder in certain types of engagements. So I have no problem wearing that bitch out. Any responses? I don't go chumming O-sites, I can't stomach it anymore. Oh, and yes, that tract you put up is exactly what I was talking about. I remember that feel. You are a one-off, and she can suck drain from a rotted pig's ass. Have a Joyous Day! rde
  11. We had something down here this a.m. on Wink News (Ft. Myers, FL) where they were trying to cover the tail end of the story. Live broadcast. At the end the newsmen just totally lost it, almost falling off their chairs and stuff. rde No more buying hot dogs. Not even White Hots (I have around a dozen of them in my freezer, and I mean the real ones, anyone interested?)
  12. Thank you, Rich. I appreciate the kind remarks. One reason I haven't published very many books is because I don't see the point unless I have something original to say. Nor do I see the point, as many authors apparently do, of essentially rewriting the same book over again in various forms. That would bore me to tears. And the notion of plagiarizing someone else's material repulses me. I identify with the autobiographical comments of various writers. One of my favorite comments is by Montesquieu, author of Spirit of the Laws, one of the most influential books of the eighteenth century and an important text in the history of classical liberalism. Concerning this book, which took many years to write, Montesquieu said: "I swear, that book almost killed me." Any writer who has invested serious time and labor in a book will know exactly what Montesquieu meant. If a lot of your blood doesn't go into a book, then it probably wasn't worth writing. Ghs I see your point, George. But on the other hand, what you wrote right there is more intriguing than most people do in posting alone. You have a defined style as a writer, and it flows well. Sort of like the thing with Howard Stern . . .the Stern haters actually listened to him longer than the Stern lovers. Reason: wanted to see what he would do next. You're fine, dude. Roll like a fuckin' pirate, per usual. EDIT/ADD: I hate when afterthoughts come, but to clarify a bit more, by way of example, I can tell instantly when you write, because it has that unique fingerprint. And I read a lot of stuff. You have a voice. Oh, you handle heavier topics than I ever will, and it might take a few lines to see it, but in the end I always know it is you. Isn't that one of the things writing is about? So, yeah, GHS lifting. Sure. I bet you wake up every morning thinking about that. rde Ops Normal Books are extraordinarily difficult for me to write, but for some reason I can write quality shorter pieces, such as posts on OL, very quickly. About "defined style" and "voice." I agree, which I one reason why it was so weird and disturbing when I first read TRW. It was like looking at a picture of myself but being told that it is a picture of someone else. Here is an interesting story about that dreadful evening when Sharon brought a copy of TRW at one of JR's Beer Busts in SF. At one point, while skimming the book and shaking my head in disbelief, I did the following: When I located a passage in TRW that began with a verbatim line from my FOR transcripts, I handed the book to someone else and then completed the paragraph from memory. In every case I came very close to being correct, word for word. Spooky, very spooky. And unsettling beyond belief. Ghs You know, you basically said what I was already considering, in a certain fashion. I mean, I'm way too vain to be a GHS fan or apologist or whatever. But you got me going on the thinking. Normally, I won't hold onto something this long. First time for everything. For what is worth then, I am going to Hold Forth. I was around even before all this started. Green screen, Atlantis, whatever. I got the better part of it, including reading Wendy's posts. I was there because I was trying to learn. I am a music instructor by trade, and one of the things I picked up on early (much to my success) had to do with continuous learning. So I read, and participated lightly. It was a brutal thing, back then. But, you stuck out--I always knew when it was you; you didn't have to sign it, though you always did. I digress, sorry. I think there is such a thing as reverse plagiarism, I do. But there is a line to it. When I use things, which I often do, they are, hopefully, obvious, and loving. You know, like if I drop in some Hunter Thompson or whatever. I'll say "savage burn," and you either get that, or you don't. And I see this crap in the guitar gunslinger biz all the time, for fuck's sake. There's quoting, in music improv, and then there is quoting and acting like you own it. Just the usual crap. Toss it off to creative problems, whatever. In your particular case, I felt like she was drifting off your tail quite early on. So, you could say she regurged early on. Then, assumed credit for her "style" and threw it back on you. Happens all the damn time. These are not joyous makers, people that have such mentality. It is entirely possible that she really feels she has a case, but is not conscious of her beginnings, which, as I remember, largely involved your influence. That kind of thing. I just move on. I am glad to say that many things have been said about me, but I have never gotten the plagiarism shit. And I know why. And I know you wouldn't do it, because you simply aren't wired that way. You're just not. That's about as clear as I can make it, but it lights my ass up to hear about this junk. It smells like a ham and feet sandwich, to quote Drew Carey. Finest Kind, rde Play "find the quotes" in that post. There are a bunch, and I did them on purpose.

  14. Oh, my. Uh, off-rip: 1. "Don't threaten me with a good time." 2. "Charnel-woman, my ass." 3. "In case you didn't notice, this is what happened to my last husband." 4. "You just don't send me flowers, any more. Which is good, because it's a real bitch to plant shit around here." 5. "I just sharpened the blade on this bitch. Care to tango?" 6. "If you bother to sniff it, you will notice the butt-end of this smells vaguely like chicken. Wanna know why? DO YOU?" 7. "The best thing about all this is that I kept my receipts, and I fully plan to return both of these to Home Depot. Once I get finished, that is." rde
  15. The bottom line of it is, George, simple: that you are so talented you would never find the need to steal. Too good for that. I just can't see someone like you ever having such a need. Best, rde
  16. Pay-for Skype session via www.kink.com . So they say. Most myths are based in fact, no? As legend goes, the quote was, from her "Damn, Bobby Evans, (or should I call you "Big Boy?") that's a fine piece of man-meat. Please, please, part my own powerful meat-curtain." Personally, I am pretty sure I saw it myself, back in the 80's. It was plastered in a phone booth over on Hollywood Blvd. It had weird stuff on it and smelled sort of like chicken. And I don't mean the photo. r
  17. Check out the book titles listed under "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought...." Titles include: All Jacked Up: Rough Riders, Book 8 Here Kitty, Kitty: Magnus Pack, Book 3 Cowgirl Up and Ride: Rough Riders, Book 3 Rough, Raw, and Ready: Rough Riders, Book 5 I love titles like this. Btw, take a look at the hunks on these book covers. That's how I used to look before I did drugs. Let my cautionary tale serve as a warning: Just say no! Ghs Well, yeah. You know, it lends to credence to the idea of writing off the title. You gotta start somewhere, no? Thanks, GHS. I'll tell Rachel. I'll tell her that you are probably quietly fouling yourself and bought everything on the suggested list. Regards, rde Hoping everyone knows how to buy Kleenex in bulk.
  18. It wouldn't stop you from having a couple of them, if they came over. rde
  19. Geezus H. Xstian, George . . . How long does the Fear last? Is there a way to do TedRemoval<tm>? I ask you as a professional. Lordy knows, I have tried, and hit it pretty hard. I think one of the most annoying wounds is one of those like, say, where you get bit from a Brown Recluse Spider, and it starts creating necrotic flesh on your ass. He reminds of that. Anyway: Possible Solution. Read, review, purchase "Punk Rox Warriors." Buy a bunch of copies (@3.99, I'll go in for a few dozen). Send to him. After they arrive in a shipping carton, it is pretty much up to you how you wish to proceed. I mean, we could really get into this, if your tolerance levels have dropped. Tempting, George. Real tempting. But I think we are both busy. Either way, have at it. I'm sure you'll figure something out. EDIT: Or, we could just start up on the Angie/CNN jokes, but that is fairly well-mined. Options, friend: options. PS: I was there through all that. Let's say it simple: Wendy is a cunt. You heard me. Regards, rde
  20. Yes, that was all very cute, boys. Very predictable, though. Oh, run the crucifixion jokes. Jesu Xsti, I thought I had that done a few years ago. You better be careful, or the next you know, you'll become a narcissist, and, for sure, I for one don't want to see that happening. I'm not even an Xstian and those riffs you are running are just weak. If you want to get to work on this thing, you're going to have to bear into it. Blessings, and let's get this fuckin' party started. rde
  21. Here is the Amazon link: Punk Rox Warrior, Rachel Cron Enjoy the just-appropriate whoo-hoo. rde
  22. I have also read this book, simply do a search on Amazon for it. My wife's review below, there are other around: I am Rachael's sister-in law. Knowing for her long as I have known her (and in fact, we haven't for that long, if you don't count 15 years), it is amazing for me to be able to tell you that, by the verbiage, the experiences, with assurance, that they all come from her. She creates the visceral experience. Simply put. When you read her work, you are "there." It is that good. She has a natural ability to create a dynamic writing flow; and that is very hard to come by. This book book draws the erotic romance reader into the highs, and the lows of "R's" experience. In other words, she is so good at her work that she can allow the reader to experience the highs, and the lows. This means that she has command of range in writing. And, still manages to make it come off sexy Check it out, boys and girls: it is a great read. Best, rde Darlene Passarella
  23. I just like the word "mount." Heh heh. huh....heh rde Channeling Beavis
