You ungrateful, heartless bastard!

The lad poured his heart and soul into that work of "sheer warped genius" (Burnley Express)

There's nothing wrong with the good old days! Damn your eyes! Times of...well, we won't go there.

I wish him well.

Every success!

HUZZAH!

Who'd have thought our very own cutting edge reporter has a book out?

That must have been the world's most closely guarded secret.

Has it got acronyms in it?

I shan't be buying it anyway. For obvious reasons. But then I shan't be slagging it off in the comments sections of Amazon etc. either. Like certain warped individuals do. I might have considered it, had it featured Maggot Armies, Messiahs and Judas's, but as it stands I'd rather read Simon Cowell's autobiography.

I asked in Tesco when I popped in after work earlier tonight if they had it in stock, but the pimply faced shelf stacker off the night shift just looked at me as if I'd gone out as he shrugged and pointed haplessly at the beer aisle.

That was all the inspiration I needed.

Go Jaggy!

This time next year you'll be a billionaire!

No need for me to go too deeply into reasons for writing here - I've bored people to virtual death with all that.

As for submitting - I've had a few knockbacks. Sometimes I've agreed and sometimes I've disagreed with decisions, as I'm sure we all have. I tend to just try to keep calm and carry on.

I'm displaying my goods in somebody else's shop window, and I respect that. I wouldn't be too pleased if somebody swanned into our house and crapped on the sofa...if you see what I mean.

This only my opinion, but I think anything's fair game for satire, no matter how distasteful or abhorrent a real life incident may have been. It's how people do it that counts.

I recall watching a TV News report about a gun rampage where several innocent people lost their lives, and a reporter quite callously asked a police spokesman if the bodies had been left out in the open on a hot day as investigations continued. That aspect sickened me, and I spoofed it, wanting to take a pop at the bloodthirsty media.

It wasn't really funny, more of an angry rant about insensitivity. There's always an angle.

Also saw a post relating to 'mutual understanding' between US and other contributors. As in - do we understand what we're approving/disapproving? I approve a lot of US stories involving people I've never heard of, or could care less about. There's celeb stuff and sports stuff - unlike Frankie I don't always have the time or the inclination to Google subjects - but generally I'll approve, providing it doesn't contravene the general rules.

And as for the app center (sic) I must confess that I haven't really been as active as I should have been over the last couple of weeks, but that's purely attributable to personal circumstances.

As for so-called 'men' who abuse women, either physically, mentally, or in some online fantasy existence as a tormentor - not my bag.

I'm going to start ranting now, so I'd better shut up.

Regards

Skoob.

Frankie,

I think I know you well enough by now to know that you wouldn't make light of a situation regarding child molestation.

And I know you'd never do that.

The lizard people thing is a reference to a guy named David Icke (Google him) a former sports reporter who currently conducts 'lecture' tours, and has some pretty weird theories.

One of which suggested something along the lines of a cabal of 'lizard people' who are really aliens, who run the earth from some subterranean cave. In South America or somewhere.

Personally, I think he's crackers, but having said that, he has his adherents.

Not for me to criticise - I can only give a personal opinion.

He is a bit mental though. (In my opinion.)

Regards

Skoob.

Can't see why you're pissed off mate. Seems to me that we're all singing from the same hymnn sheet.

And Frankie - just for information - you got it wrong sbout the British press. Every newspaper is a private enterprise. They tend to have political affiliations in much the same way that Fox News and others do The BBC is state funded, but in its basic code of practice has always been for free editorial control. It is far from being a propoganda machine. (Despite complaints from the right that it leans too far to the left, and vice versa when it suits people with vested political interests.)

Although some people would - as is their right - dispute that.

The Savile case will be thoroughly investigated.

Albeit decades too late.

Anyone who covered anything up should be made to pay. And I'm reasonably certain that we all hope they are.

By the same token - what's been going on for decades in the Catholic Church needs to be exposed, and justice needs to be served.

As a Catholic myself, I don't hesitate to demand this. What I will say, is that as this was going on among Catholics...it's never happened among any other religious group?

These freaks know no boundaries - whether it's an internationally renowned media outlet, or one of the world's leading religions.

This problem needs resolving across the board. And I'm sure we all hope it is.

I could probably have argued my point a little better, but it's late, I'm tired, and I've had a very unpleasant last few days.

Just don't interpret this as a taking a pop at anyone here - because I'm not - I just want to see justice, for all victims.

Sincerely

Skoob.

Can I make a constructive comment on this and others in the cycle? No? I will anyway.

It's a bit of a rip off posting these items on an almost daily basis, with very little writer input, or criticism. These things are just quotes, followed by a couple of words of comment.

Bear with me here...

People use the Magazine section of the site to try out experimental and creative writing. That isn't the sort of thing you can knock out on a daily basis with twelve words of comment on eighty nine words of quotation.

And it swamps the Magazine section.

Okay - this is where the constructive part comes in.

Why not collate the quotes over a longer period - a week, or a month - and then make some genuinely scathing remarks, Fanzine style?

I'm not trying to be negative - quite the contrary - it's just that these pieces seem to be rushed when they don't need to be. In this case, it saves clogging up the Mag section if there's more time devoted to them, and it makes for something people may want to read, as opposed to two or three words strung on the end of a quote from a newspaper.

Last suggestion - be biased. That's what makes fanzines function.

It would be infinitely more interesting.

Regards

Skoob.

Point taken.

Funny how nobody seems to comment much lately. Can only speak for myself, but I either can't comment, or the things being posted recently, I just don't have an opinion on.

Can't somebody write a story about lesbian tennis players?

If anyone's deluded enough to think that continually recycling the same old toot ad nauseum is somehow going to rejuvenate the site, then perhaps they ought to sign up with the BBC.
