Pope, Others Admit Christianity Not True

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Pope Benedict XVI, after seeing the documentary about Jesus by James Cameron, wiped away a tear and said, "Holy shit, I'm out of a job!" Across the pond, the Rev. Jerry Falwell was seen tossing an armload of Bibles into a dumpster. "I've long worried tha...

A Substitute for Soccer Balls

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Same old story: a young person wearies of working dead-end jobs for low pay and no benefits, and decides to join the military. In this case it's Joshua Key, a twentysomething lad from Guthrie, Oklahoma. He's got a wife and three kids (with another on the...

The Galumphing Gourmet

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Thanks Harlan--and Serita--for the recipe. It sounds tasty (I've never tried the combo--I live too sheltered a life, obviously) and has the added virtue of being SIMPLE. When it comes to cooking, I'm highly skilled with hard-boiled eggs and toast, but .....

Resentment

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Jorg: So, Harlan Ellison is an inferior scribe because he only wrote ONE novel? Hm. I guess that means Oscar Wilde sucks too, because he only wrote one novel as well. But who's to say which medium of prose expression is superior? Is it a greater achievem...

MYSTERY SOLVED!

Name: Larry` Source: unca20070325.htm My years of literary sleuthing finally paid off. For those of you who've wondered, "Why is the 'Art Deco Dining Pavilion' called the 'Art Deco Dining Pavilion'"? Wonder no more. As Harlan wrote in the essay, "Why Everything Is Fucked Up, Since You Asked" (circa...

Re: The Rant

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm This rant of Harlan's reminded me of an earlier one regarding his observations while viewing THE OMEN. Seems there was this young couple really getting off on the gratuitous violence. The worst part came when a fellow was decapitated by a sheet of glass ...

Bigots for All Seasons

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Steve Barber: Point well taken about not defaming Cal State at Long Beach. Of course I was only writing in jest and meant no denigration of the university or the city. Yes, our institutions of the higher learning do contain some rather odious sorts, but ...

Damn Cybergremlins!

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Pardon the double post, but those damn cybergremlins cut me off in midbabble. I just wanted to say to Josh that, if he encountered Eva Green in Paris, to mention that Larry Forrest is her biggest fan in Oklahoma. Of course, he'd forget, and of course, I'...

Anti-Semitism with an Academic Face

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Luigi: Are you saying that, because Harlan wrote an essay critical of the rampant commercialism of Xmas and a positive review of THE CARBUNCLES OF RIDDICK, that he's part of the International Zionist Conspiracy to Pollute the Precisous Bodily Fluids of A...

Only a Zahn in Their Game

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Harlan: I am very sorry about the passing of your friend. I hadn't heard of Lee Hoffman until yesterday, but after viewing her website, it's obvious to me that her life was one well lived. I read the CNN transcript of Paula Zahn's interview with three pe...

A Simple Desultory Ramble

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Carstonio: "If you have a thing for Republican women's loins, I understand Nancy Reagan is available." Uh, hmmm, well ... I think I'll pass on that. Ronnie would be a hard act to follow, after all. Connie W.: Pleased you could join us. Pull up a chair. N...

Onward Ho!

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070325.htm Harlan and Jack: thanks for the opportunity to witness this ongoing literary collaboration. Anyone interested in the creative process--which includes all save for those who buy their plots from an idea factory in Schnectady--will find this irresistable. ...

Of course, modesty is not a virtue common to politicians--particularly to one whose theme song is "Hail to t...

Librarian-in-Chief

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070202.htm Much derisive comment has been made about plans to contruct a $500 million library to the greater glory of President George W. Bush. I confess that there is a certain irony in building a library to honor a president who has rarely, if ever, impressed any...

Harlan's Humor

Name: Larry Forrest Source: unca20070202.htm There certainly is humor in Harlan's fiction. Offhand, "From A to Z, in the Chocolate Alphabet" and "Mom" come to mind. There are also some comic scenes in "Repent, Harlequin! Said the Ticktockman." Though it's not fiction, the introduction to "Edgeworks...
