Re: Carver and Chekhov

The Babel Fish passage was a seminal moment in my young life. That an author of a popular book would reach/stoop to that level, a level of intelligent, argumentative rhetoric, I think is what helped form me for the next ten years of my life. ' "Oh dear, says god, I hadn't thought of that."...

Re: Whatcha reading?

I remember Brian Daley's Han Solo series. Han Solo's Revenge, Han Solo At Stars End. They don't call it juvenilia for nothing.

That is pure effing poetry, man. As William S. Burroughs said, "That's good enough to steal." :lol:

Re: Great Bumperstickers

Was he suggesting we shoot our elected representatives as they drive by? Gee. . . Dunno. I mean, I probably would have worn that during my proto-punk days when I was sixteen/eighteen, sure. I would have saved it and worn it on Nov. 22, just to be a dick. But on anyone older than that, it just reeks...

Re: Whatcha reading?

Now that's an interesting question. What was your first real SF? Wow. I've been going over it in my brain for half an hour now, and that's tough. I've been reading since I can remember, and it's difficult to separate the what from the when at such a young age. I assume we mean Speculative Fiction a...

Re: Great Bumperstickers

Not a sticker but a T-shirt I saw a while ago. I was at work when a co-worker comes at me fast and says, real quiet but intense, "Paul, go look at the black t-shirt at register 5. Now, go now, before it's gone." So I saunter my way across the front and there was a portly thirty-something m...

Re: Writing a Dumb Joke

I once, years ago, looked for some Anne Frank jokes on the internets. I couldn't find any. I could not believe that there were none. It was incomprehensible that no one had made any A. Frank jokes, ever, nor that they would not be found on the web. And yet, I could find none. So I made up my own. Kn...

And let's not forget Iphigenia auf Brooklyn by P.D.Q. Bach. Chuck Oh man. I got to see Peter Schickle give a performance here and it was UFB. Un-f@^&ing-believable! I have a ton Of P.D.Q. Bach, but you are just not prepared to see what the hell they're doing to make that music. Kinda like Weird...

Hey Mark? That was good, man. Thanks for writing what many of us feel and say, and get our friends and co-workers and peers all in a twitch, even though they knew we spoke honestly to begin with.
Do you mind if i share this, FB and such, with credit given, natch?

Re: Webderland Wine Seminar

Doug~ You're correct about the MD 'liquor store only' law. The laws are quite strange and seemingly arbitrary. I guess whatever sounded good at the time was made into law. For example: A case of beer is okay to carry out of a store, but everything else must be in a bag, even if it's a six-pack and i...

Goodness, how bad could it have been?

There is still moderation. In all tenses of the word. That is a good thing. 8)
