Barber and Doug

It's just the the way I am, I realize I'm over reacting a bit but it keeps me from really messing things up.

Lori, what Doug and Steve said. You did not sound shrill, and Harlan sounded kind, like himself, just telling you not to worry. How are you these days? Is your dad better? I don't post much, cause my old computer is driving me crazy with its stops and stutters.

Lori, one final thing, I promise. I just wanted to show an example of Harlan going off (although with tongue in cheek) on someone -- me. Behind the humor was a serious plea on his part:

IMPORTANT WARNING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WARNING !

TEMPORARY NEW RULE !!!!!!!!!!!!

Do NOT I repeat do NOT NOT NOT NOTNOTNOTNOT say a word about the film that opens this coming Friday, based on the Marvel Comic of the same name, to wit:

GHOST RIDER!!!!!!!!

Don't even post that you went to see it, because I know you swine, you'll feel merrily naughty by suggesting SOMEGODDAMTHING and if you so much as spoil it for me, even one frame of it, good or bad or sensational or garbage, I will, as GGGGGGAAAAAAAWWWWWDDDDD is my witness,

I will track you down, stalk you relentlessly, seek you out... unscrew your head AGAINST the threads, reach down inside your pustulent body and yank out your nuts and/or fallopians with my bare paw, from the inside, and make you masticate them through your disembodied mouth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HAVE I MADE MYSELF ABSOLUTELY DO-NOT-FEED-THE-GREMLINS-AFTER-MIDNIGHT CLEAR????? Youse all has been warned.

DEATH THREAT DEATH THREAT DEATH THREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

See...!!!!!! Al READY you li'l fuckers are starting!

Already, Messer, your worthless life hangs in the balance.

I KNOW you, you rapscallion piss-ant! You just can't WAIT to sneak in some smartass fillip.

I will kill you, Messer. I will kill you, eat your remains, puke you out, kill you again, and feed your regurgitated offal remains to my hunting dogs.

Then I'll kill and eat THEM!

Does ANYONE out there think I'm kidding here?

Yrs. with a steely stare, John Fuckin' Dillinger!!!!


And that is how Harlan goes all Castle Bravo on your ass. I hope it gives you a chuckle as it did me. By the way, he was a bit disappointed with the movie.

I'm not sure he expressed his disappointment.

I do remember that he was ADAMANT that he had seen the film, but that was as much as he'd commit to. :)

Shockingly, Harlan has never been that hard on me. He likes me. It's a wondrous thing.

Homeslice, this is one of those moments you should sit quietly and hope for short memories and the kindness of others.

Too bad you don't reciprocate. HE has asked repeatedly that we keep the politics out of the Pavilion and there you are every five minutes with another screed.

The Supreme Court just said black people have less rights and the NSA can do anything it wants. That's a bit more important.

I remember reading that and thinking "Note to self, don't ever be that dumb if you can help it."

Laughed then as well as now.

Ah, yes. The few, the proud, the fuckheads who got their lives threatened by Unca Harlan.
