  1. Wait until they pick you up in a tractor beam. I tell you what, Reidy, you better break out that aluminum foil and get your hat together--that's what I'm doing. What will be better is if the theory of alien life is true, which I believe it to be. I hope they're nice. r
  2. I so want to tear into this but I'm going to use some restraint. Adam? I'm struggling over substitute ingredients for avocado dip.
  3. Heh. I actually had to check myself and see if I had smoked any dope before I was watching this, and I hadn't. Yet. But I felt that way. rde Quick, Robin: Into the Popemobile!
  4. Well, at least you got off your filthy sex habits enough to write something cogent, Adam. ;) rde Running
  5. Nice job, Ridley! OMG! You could practically see the constipation levels increase. I'm guessing that might have ruined their lunch--digestive problems? I like the one cop in the back (obviously someone who watched way too many Steven Segal movies)--you can just feel the boil going on. And in NH, of course, of all places. Those activists should get sent fruit and cheese baskets, at the bare minimum. rde Today's word is "wow."
  6. Wow, did I like reading that, Andrew. And it wasn't even for me. Hey, that reminds me! I'm working on this giant story for my blog and I have a few days before I can put up anything of my own. Your last article was so good and well-received! Do you have anything sitting around that you'd like to put up over on my place? Even a shorty? I just got done working with Robert Binidotto and before that, Rachel Cron, both of which took a bit of doing. But I would love to have you do something else. Message me or whatever. You are really emerging well as a writer, from my eyes, and what that
  7. Hi, Dana. Hardin is a very good man, and probably an excellent therapist, at least for anyone but himself. Occasionally, he even has a sense of humor. He seems to be stuck on this football thing. But we all have our stuff. Perhaps he likes all the ass-patting, the roar of the crowd, whatever. Anyone that is willing to pay 12 bucks for a beer needs to do some serious introspection, at least in my book. As to your experience talking to others about AR, etc. . . .this is a constant. And by that I mean decades. Initial exposure to, say, Atlas, or Fountainhead is an amazing, liberating experi
  8. MESSAGE AUTO-DESTRUCT WILL ACTIVATE APPROX 60 SEC.S AFTER READING Our dearest Curly-Tail: First off, apologies in advance: as you may or may not know, it was Weasel Stomping Day over here in the Everglades, which of course puts a halt to whatever government functions are actually still functioning. If you are not familiar with the tradition, or perhaps need to refresh your understanding of this colorful ethnic event, I offer you a lovely reel--just ignore the upfront advertisement (though it is rather appropriate to the matter-at-hand)--I can't filter out what those bloody Nips over at Sony
  9. From: R. Engle, National Affairs Desk, Division of Horny Goatweed To: Hogswine Frothington (or as we used to know him back in school, "Old Stinky") Re: This whole Pervo Situation First off, I am not an esquire. I hate fucking lawyers. But I can understand your misunderstanding, given the way I behave. As to this person's "proclivities," as you put it, I only see certain ones, and trust me, they are disturbing enough to make one believe we are only dealing with the tip of the iceberg, here. My only hope (which I hang on threadbare) is that he isn't doing anything involving barnyard animals,
  10. Fracking Then he defended his remarks, which to me appear to be a ding-dong problem involving mistaken causality. I mean, I guess I could be wrong on that but for fuck's sake. rde "I got it from the toilet seat." --Frank Zappa
  11. Oh, and if time allow y'all: Could you please comment on the interview? I think Robert is interested in feedback--he had some very interesting answers. Comment on the blog if you do, so we can see it. It seemed to me that he came up with some good new ways of looking at things. I mean, even if you already read it, it would be great if you could go back and comment. Hunter Interview
  12. This is starting to grow on me. And then I looked back on it and found yet more evidence as to what a total Sex Pervert Selene is. He seems to have an endless appetite for naked chicks, and other forms of the Finer Sport. It is nice to know that you aren't the only filthy hound out there. rde I like to watch. <---yes, it's just a quote from "Being There," for fuck's sake.
  13. Utopian colonies have a terrible track record. Crap, for that matter the Pilgrims thought they were creating one, and they ended up with the Salem Witch Trials. If only, if only. I think you create your Utopia in small, hand-made family type groups--family you choose. This is the only thing that has ever worked for me, anyway. I have a really nice one going on right now--very diverse, very together. We do communal activities but we do not function all together in a communal environment.
  14. Which martial art, Sensei? P.S., nice interview. Martial art? Oh, when I refer to martial art, it is in my own context, coming from 1969. I started out in TKD under 4 Korean masters (native teaching), which included judo, and in the end, Hapkido. In between that, I studied Okinawan karate, and was started to get into weapons. Then, back to the Koreans. After that, I freelanced and taught MA. I went back into training in the early 90's, but was looking for a "soft" style (tired of bone crushing injuries), so I did a brief gig at the Cleveland Aikikai (Aikido), and that included bokken (w
  15. This was a chat session that Bob and I did today and trust me, he answered a lot of questions. I was very honored to do this work and plus it was a real hoot to work with him. Right here: Rich Engle Interviews Robert Bidinotto Best Wishes To All, rde
  16. Yeah, but it's still fun to call a bluffer's bluffs. J Yeah, ND. I got that too. You gotta try a little better than that to slide one by. rde Remember: This Is A Tough Room
  17. Hmmm. Now that thar is sumthin' boy. Like he's being all Bad Boy saying that. Jesus, read Hemingway, read Henry Miller, read me. Like this is a big deal? Fuck's sake. What was it? Ether? Viagra? Warm glass of gin with a human hair in it? Over the counter sinus pills? Mouthwash? Sterno? You write through sobriety, you write through insobriety, you write, write write (or in his case, jabber audio, I guess). At this point it would probably be better if he got back on the stem. Shit, I start having flashbacks just listening to his audio. It puts you right in bat country. It is so god
  18. I talk about how I somehow missed this one, but whatever--read the review and more importantly, if you're into this kind of thing, watch it. Here's my thing, including the trailer. Trust me on this one, friends: Roger Corman's "Bucket of Blood" I think it might be the best film he ever made (which is a relative statement, considering what we are talking about). rde Hail Corman
  19. Joel M. is the ONLY person that has visited the Phil Shrine lately. You dirty pigfuckers better get over there and do some cleaning up, tribute, whatever. The Phil Shrine I'm interested in His answers, as far as apologies and such go, but I am getting The Fear. Believe me, once he gets this math problem out of his exhaust port, we're all going to pay. Phil, hitting a thread at only approx 65% energy. I don't care if you are atheist or even completely un-spiritual: It's Gonna Be Like That. I've been through several of these campaigns, and the one thing you better know is that we are al
  20. Laugh now, heretics. He (Phil, that is) will come upon you with a mighty vengeance. I am scrambling to give It (Phil, I mean) Meager Offerings<tm> to fend off the inevitable. Behold my latest postage-stamp size rendering, where I have ported Him into the world of sixties pop art: But this is a mere morsel. rde I have pictures of Phil for all of you to edit, just message me.
  21. Build it and she will come???? You know, it has only been in recent months that I started to realize what a sick, horny bastard you are. It only makes me respect you more. rde Now give her a proper paddling.
  22. Well, if you made a little list . . . Actually, that's a great idea! That way, if you adhere to it, you are almost assured of not inviting assholes to your cocktail parties. I'm starting to really like this idea--that would've avoided me a lot of trouble this year. rde OK, Peikoff, fork over the ball cream.
  23. Brant, Why not a branch called human nature? After all, philosophy is supposed to be for humans... Michael Academically everybody is fighting for their own turf and will not tolerate a rejiggering of their own spaces. There is much too much specialization in the liberal arts and not enough integrated thinking across these disciplines. "Human nature" is the right idea, but the term itself doesn't have enough oomph or gravitas. It can't compete with sociology, psychology, philosophy, language arts (or what-have-you), anthropology, etc. The best term is still the old term: liberal arts, which ev
