Mr. Ellison, thanks for stating your position on the Sinatra tale. Further, deponent asketh not.

As to admiring the work of great artists who do bad things, I don't think there needs to be that great a dilemma. Trust the art, not the artist.

People have different ways of reacting to different things, including death. As is their right.

Saying Hi

I'm new, hello out there. I'm a graphic artist by trade, and I split my waking hours as a singer, writer, cartoonist, web artist and husband as spirit and duty move me.

I first encountered this story in an anthology called The Elvis Reader (which also happens to be where the great "Bubba Ho-Tep" made its debut). I read it as something it very probably was: a work solicited and altered to include an Elvis angle so it could be included in the book, rather than any si...

Why Everything is Stil F**ked Up

Name: John E Williams Source: unca20050815.htm It's been over twenty years since I first read Mr. Ellison's column from An Edge in My Voice entitled "Why Everything is Fucked Up (Since You Asked)", and it's an essay whose message I immediately took to heart. I especially paid attention to the way E...

Dougie and Tony, thank you. Oddly enough, part of my confusion is whether the quote I'm looking for is by Simon or Hemingway! I'm leaning towards Simon, as Dougie's quote sounds closer to what I'm looking for.

Quote Needed

Name: John E Williams Source: unca20050524.htm I apologize for jumping in here without proper introduction or credential, but I'm looking for a favorite quote of Mr. Ellisons, attribution required.

Question Redux

Name: JohnEWilliams Source: unca20031013.htm Mr. Ellison, Since you seem to be around of late, and since it appears a question I asked some time ago got lost in all the foofrah, may I ask again what you thought of "Wonder Boys" (book and film) as far as how it depicted writers? I ask because I have...
