Paul Elam – 2008-11-14 9:43 AM Yes, there is a need to pull back at times. Sometimes there is a need to let go. Whatever the indignation at the problem I conveyed though, I don’t think it compates to the personally insulting nature of your post. Have a nice day, sir. Learn where you can, and where you are willing. Paul
I was just sharing a little of what I’ve learned as an Internet opinionator myself. Hell, the last thing I actually worry about is teaching the middle. I’m all about the red meat, so I figured I’d heads-you-up a little on what I picked up from the piece, and from your other piece about Chivalry. You have a theme going, and I just wanted to see how committed to it you are.
Believe me, I share your energy, and take the arrows with a smile whenever I let loose. Take a wander through this forum alone and see what kind of brutality I engage in. I’m a cartoon more often than not, but I’m purposely a cartoon whenever I am. That difference is a big difference, and as long as you know that, then enjoy yourself.
Just a thought from one antagonist to another – find untilled soil to dig into, and you’ll find a lot more valuable resentment attracted to your work. Helium.com is packed with the battle of the sexes, and those meat pies are all shilling for Google Ad clicks with that stuff. There’s a lot to get angry over out here in Amerikaland. If this slice of outrage is your personal itch, the scratch away, but if you’re mining for productive territory, you might want to keep on looking.
Personally, I’m thinking that misguided existentialism hasn’t been turned into a WWE pay-per-view event yet, and I’m looking into the rights on that circus. I figure that if someone can cartoon that up a little and get people angry with it, the competition will be confused as to how to properly address any of it. That should give me some months of market share before the Chinese figure out how to make it cheaper and flood the Walmarts of the world with it.
Relax. There’s enough anger for all of us here. The world is one big scream therapy session. The trick is to find a frequency that’s not being used at the moment before letting ‘er rip.
