Please note: I've switched to "New" blogger and it works like shit-- which is why part of this post may be missing.

Funny Karl. Good to know you are looking out for the little guy and the underground and that independent spirit. With people like you on the job who needs enemies?

M.D.G. said...

Maybe you're workin for the CIA.

King said...

Please, get a sense of humor.

Please stop bein a hypocrite and acting like you are standing up for the little guy and shitting all over them at the same time. That sounds like an agent to me Karl. If I did run this shitty little reading down here where only a bunch of birds show up you would think that was funny, wouln'd you? Luckilly that is not true because unlike you Karl I get off my ass and build something constructive. But no you just want people around you that'll kiss your ass. Even if they don't really kiss your ass they just have to act like it. I don't act Karl and if I do kiss someones ass (Which is rare.), they do something to earn it, and it is usually a mutual respect. I bust my ass to do what I do. I print my own chapbooks and sell them and I run two poetry readings a month that I built up from nothing. But you are standing up for the little guy. All you ever did was worked against me Karl. Remember the poetry festival that I put together from scratch, that you boycotted. And I did come to you about that before I even started putting it together and asked you what you thought about me putting a Poetry festival together, and what did you tell me Karl? That you were not the Poetry expert I was. Then all of the sudden you were all up in arms that you could not be a part of it and I would dare to act as an individual. I know but I'm just bitching and I should get over shit, but man if someone shows me that they are a snake I remember that shit. You don't get far if you don't. You don't give a fuck about the little guy Karl you are only looking after yourself. If you want me to be the butt of your stupid jokes fine.

Whatever.
Did you hear the 5-Spot burned down a little while ago. People are talking it up.
Bad Karma?

King said...

Man, what insecurity.
The delicate bourgeois ego.
(The ULA of course was founded by the little guy. We're from the grass roots. That's our origins. I've been "Do-It-Yourself" for years. Nothing to answer for on that score! We seek to immortalize
underground writers, to announce them to the world-- which is what we're doing; making literary history in the process.)
p.s. There's no disgrace in reading for pigeons, as Crazy Carl and I did that afternoon. We had a lot of fun. Pigeons are cool people.

M.D.G. said...

Insecurity? What are you talking about? I am totally secure with myself as an artist and I am an artist before I am a promoter. And yes, I can do both. I like you have been doing zines for a long time, just about twenty years. Maybe you don't realize that. And bourgeois me? I doubt that Karl. You're the one that's chasing the money and fame. I could care less about it. This is about the art.
Yeah Frank I was on the phone with Julia when the Five Spot was on the news burning down. What do you mean whatever Frank? Did I streatch the truth or make something up? Enlighten me Frank please. And say it straight. Don't speak in riddles. People are talking what up?
And Karl where are the seagulls? Seagulls also are a fine audience..

King said...

Yes, I plan on communing with the seagulls next time I visit Atlantic City, when the weather warms up.
If it were just about the art you wouldn't be posting here, would you? (Got to go. Some pigeons gathering outside. My fans are calling.)

M.D.G. said...

Wrong Karl. I would only be posting here if I felt that you were desecrating the art if it was only about the art.

M.D.G. said...

Oh yeah you can go down to the Deleware River and find some seagulls.

I think Dean Haspiel is the enemy.

Any friend of Tim Hall's is the enemy of alternative art, comic culture, anything else cool and interesting.

chilly charlie said...

Tim, I agree with your other post. Dean really is a loser. I'm glad you had the courage to say it.

chilly charlie said...

Warning: Tim Hall is stalking this blog.

Dean Haspiel is his best friend.

Never trust a comic book illustrator.
