I'm Slowly Posting: There's A Woman In My Life

This is my sister, Marva Holiday, and she and I have finally been able to freely communicate after decades apart. We're both foster children, so we've a lot to talk about - we haven't even gotten around to this guy yet - so we're like two Chatty Kathy's ("I'll call you when I wake up") with more and more stuff each of us has to know!

It's probably the best thing that's ever happened to me.

This is Marva with The Rascals. (It seems like she's worked with everyone at one time or another. Tonight I got a great story about Hunter S. Thompson and David Crosby of Crosby Seals & Nash: Hilarious.) Anyway, it's in the blood.

I'll still be posting, but probably won't get back to the regular pace of things until this dies down, if it ever will:

Because I think, finally, I'm in love again. (Shut up, you pervs,...)

  1. That is great news Crack! Also, it is really lucky that you like each other. I love my sisters, but I think if they were not related to me and I just met them I would have very little interest in them.

  4. Glad to hear it.

    Maybe now you might see the virtue in dropping the bogus macho façade and get back to being a real man.

  5. I hate to break it to you but - surprise - my sister likes me the way I am.

  6. Anonymous,

    I like how you think I'm fake. What does that make you? An authentic wimp. You even spelled "facade" with the fucked-up little tail on the c. You probably hold your pinky out as you sip your tea, too.

    What a maroon.

    dbp, Luther, and Brian - thanks, guys.

  7. You don't get it. Why should I be surprised? I'm glad you connected with your sister. Why shouldn't she like you the way you are?

    By the way, I don't think you're fake. I think you're trying to distinguish yourself on the internet. A lot of people are doing that these days.

    The problem is, making "The Macho Response" your tag line is like calling yourelf "The Internet Tough Guy" and trying to sell t-shirts.

    Anybody who goes around telling people he's "x", isn't "x."

    And as far as the spelling goes . . . who cares?

    Reading so much into something so unimportant makes you look, well, misguided and frivilous.

  8. Oh, and by the way, a real man don't go around telling people he's a real man.

    You know . . . telling people he's macho.

    I thought you were smart enough to make the connection from "real man" to "macho." I thought you were smart enough to get it.

    Looks like I was wrong.

  9. One more thing.

    "Moroon" dates back to the old Bugs Bunny cartoons.

    It used to be funny but now it's just a stupid internet cliché.

    You should be able to do better than that.

    Try being original for a change.

    Only to feminized males. Men (if I can call them that) who think being masculine is a negative. men who think being macho is a joke - until it's I who have to save their lives. Macho ain't no joke:

    It built this place.

  11. You're like one of those grandiose mental patients who thinks he's Napoleon.

    Whatever.

    You seem harmless enough.

    Who knows? Maybe someday somebody more successful than Randle McMurphy will come along and bust you out of this place you've built.

  12. Or maybe, just maybe, I'm a man who knows who he is and ain't dumb enough to let some anonymous voice on his blog talk him out of it.

    Gee, I wonder which it could be? Which is more likely?

  13. Bullshit. You're working a gimmick, and nothing more, trying to get noticed on the internet. Who knows? Maybe you even do it in real life, trying to get noticed. I hope not. I hope you're not that emotionally needy.

    When I first came here I thought maybe this was a parody blog. But now I believe you're sincere and that you have no idea where the bullshit ends and the truth begins.

    You are right about one thing, though. I was hoping to encourage you to employ some moderation in your thinking. You know, like tone down the fighting words, end the grotesque generalizations, broaden the scope of your subject matter.

    There's still time, by the way. After I'm gone -- and that'll be soon -- why don't you give it a try? Try to be less repellent.

    You say it's "dumb" to consider the advice of an anonymous commenter. Well, first off, anonymity has little to do with it. Advice stands or falls on its own merits. You should know that, already.

    Second, it's extraordinarily "dumb" to wall yourself off from different points of view as if you already know it all. Wisdom is derived from other people. The more, the better.

    That's one of the reasons I've been visiting your blog. I've learned some things from you, although they're probably not what you think.

    But ultimately, I have to say, it's been a bit disappointing. I was intrigued by your blog, at first, because I thought you had something fresh to say. Hell, I thought that new age stuff went out of fashion back in the 1980s and I was surprised to find out there's someone out there who still cares about it.

    Why am I disappointed? Mostly because you're the same as 80% of the loudmouths on the internet. You bicker back and forth with each other and it soon becomes nothing but an exchange of insults and pointless one-upmanship, as if you're competing at something, but there's nobody keeping score and there's no prize to be won.

    It's mental masturbation and little more.

    And that's why, to me, it all seems like a cult. You belong to that cult, Mr Emcee.

    But you don't have to. Think for yourself. Don't play their game hoping to win their approval.

    Here's a fair example of what I'm talking about. You invoked "Occam's razor." (Notice how I didn't insult you for misspelling it the way you insulted me earlier in this thread.) But the way you used "Occam's razor" is the standard internet cliché, like the way so many people on the internet end their bickering comments with "Q.E.D." or something like that.

    Fuck, it's you congratulating yourself and hoping to intimidate the other person. And again, for what? You don't get paid squat and you don't learn squat. Does attention from strangers mean that much to you?

    And that's why you belong to a cult, Mr Emcee. An internet cult. Actually, it's worse than a cult because at least cult members in the real world know each other and make meaningful human connections, like you and your sister.

    One more thing before I go. You said that you "ain't dumb enough to let some anonymous voice on his blog talk him out of it." Fine. But "dumb" has nothing to do with it, same as a transparently needy macho strut has nothing to do with being a real man.

    We're all dumb, so far as I'm concerned. Some are dumber than others but we're all dumb.

    But if you insist that dumb-versus-smart is the standard for judgment, and if you insist that judgment is imperative, then consider how you used the principle of "Occam's razor."

    Go ahead. Look it up.

    You used it wrong, same all the other loudmouths on the internet.

  14. Look, Anonymous, I think it's time for you to go, because you really don't understand how pathetic you are in my eyes. Here's a few points just to make it clear, but, since they're anonymous, the rest can wait:

    I was hoping to encourage you to employ some moderation in your thinking. You know, like tone down the fighting words, end the grotesque generalizations, broaden the scope of your subject matter.

    Because you, voice from the ether, decided you could convince me you were the font of wisdom - like the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain - and I would do what you say. But isn't that a form of "trying to get noticed on the internet"? (Again - it's a weird one, since you're Anonymous, but it is what it is.)

    And also, since you're Anonymous, who in their right mind would listen to you? You say "Advice stands or falls on its own merits." but yours is getting nowhere, so what does that say about the quality of your advice? Come on, man, think!

    You say "it's extraordinarily "dumb" to wall yourself off from different points of view as if you already know it all. Wisdom is derived from other people. The more, the better."

    Since this first implies I don't have a life, featuring actual friends and such, I'll start by saying you're really "dumb" to have written it. Second, I wouldn't be of much worth to those friends, or they to me, if we weren't men - real men, who know ourselves, and question what the fuck the rest of you flakes are buying and selling. As I keep reminding you, I'm a real person online - anyone can find out what's going on behind the name The Crack Emcee. You? You're Anonymous. Nobody. Nada. To think I'd listen to you, who thinks I have no friends, and am so desperate for attention I'd (and this can't be stressed enough) would listen to, and start doing what, anybody says, shows why your thought "Wisdom is derived from other people" is bullshit on it's face. You go out there and let others tell you what to do, and, since I'm pretty sure you're too dumb to think for yourself, you'll find yourself with somebody's dick up your ass in no time.

    Ha! I loooove this comment, because it shows what a fool you are more clearly than anything presented - I might even do a post from it, it's so brilliant in it's stupidity! You thought NewAge died in the 1980s? Really? You fool, the Harmonic Convergence took place in 1987 and is supposed to go until 2012. So, what you (brilliant NewAge scholar that you are) thought of as the end of NewAge was really it just getting ramped up and you missed everything in between - assuming "that new age stuff went out of fashion". You're a fucking idiot to be talking to me.

    You're the same as 80% of the loudmouths on the internet.You bicker back and forth with each other and it soon becomes nothing but an exchange of insults and pointless one-upmanship, as if you're competing at something, but there's nobody keeping score and there's no prize to be won.

    Wow - this, too, is golden. You're describing your experience - Anonymous guy goes online and expects to be respected but, instead, gets dissed and decides they're all the same - when other's experience (like how many friends I have vs. how many you imply I have) is totally different. Nobody's keeping score? What do you call this? I'll tell you what I call it:

    You're an idiot.

    I could go on, but - since you're Anonymous and, like any NewAger, will slink away hoping no one ever discovers who you really are after you've made a fool of yourself or destroyed someone's life - I won't go on. But I will leave you with this:

    Don't write here again. I am trashing every one of your comments from now on. And, ultimately, I hope you take that as the most potent symbol of how much you understand me or my supposed desperation for online attention and interaction. See, whether you're wrong or right, you've missed one thing from the very start:

    I will never desire to be around fools.

    Now GO AWAY and stay there.
