Thanks. Never heard of the Watts Towers before...
Is this you trying to post on something more architectural than grout?
Did your press agent give you the idea? Not bad, keep at it, but maybe hire
someone with an education in the subject. If you don't know any,
I could hook you up. I know a few.
With a history like yours it takes a long time to change public perceptions.
Now if only you could stop posting those sermons of yours on me-me-morality
and whacko politics....and those medical diagnoses...and all that cussing
and name calling.... and... oh, who are we kidding?
Maybe so, but it ain't Don per se- he's powerless for now. I don't like
*bullies*. I spent three years on my last "bully" project...
which directly resulted in this:
Don't you have a little unproductive habit of some kind? If not, I'd suggest
you try it.
Succinctly put. The thing I find most troubling is that two stubborn
people are willing to fuck up innocent peoples' enjoyment so they can
Here's the deal for Michael and Don - show any one of these stupid
threads you're both propagating to your kids, or parents if they're
still alive, and the person that doesn't hear, "Yeah, he's an asshole,
but you're acting like an asshole, too. You're never going to win, so
just ignore him." wins!*
* Don't hold out hope that you're going to win.
Who is innocent here, and what aren't they enjoying? There is still all the
wonderful content provided by the Redneck Broadcasting System. You've
watched Don Linsenbach insult and chase numerous gentler people from the
group, under his current identity. If you've been enjoying this
cyber-bloodsport, I'm sure the vanquished would hardly call that innocent.
You haven't answered my other questions about shaking and making up with Don
Linsenbach yet, Rico. Remember them? I've asked them several times now, so
I'm left to wonder why you won't answer. They are:
Have you ever asked anyone to shake hands and make up with Don Linsenbach
If so, how did that turn out?
I have stated generous terms:
No offensive behavior towards others from Don Linsenbach, and
no OT political/philosophical blogging by Don Linsenbach on the group
and I'll stand down, and treat him civilly.
Would this spoil your 'innocent' fun?
Yep, keep painting yourself in that big white hat. Maybe someday
someone will believe it. Your feelings got hurt and you're trying to
Do not ask me questions hoping to pull me into your stupid tilting at
windmills, DON Quixote. I am not your enemy, but it appears you are
trying to make me one. Why? What did I ever do to you except point
out that you've been acting like an asshole? Ask your wife, kids,
parents, co-workers - anyone at all in the 'real' world what their
opinion is on your behavior. You're embarassing yourself and
embarassing your family. Over what? Hurt pride.
You do know how newsgroups work, right?
You do understand that this is an unmoderated group, right?
You do realize that Don is Don and you are you and you're both
stubborn children and won't change of your own volition, right?
You do realize that there is nothing either of you can do to change
the other one, right?
So what do you do? You resort to personal attacks (way to take the
high road and lead by example), and hope to out-flame your
'opponent'. Yeah, that's a winning tactic on Usenet if I've ever
heard one. It's pathetic.
You came to the group as a normal person with a sense of humor, and
you've turned into a flaming asshole.
The only thing you will accomplish is turning into the very thing you
hate. A Usenet bully. Congratulations. Now please fuck off.
While you're at it, start only on topic threads, or put OT in the
You guys deserve each other. Obviously neither of you cares what the
other one thinks, SO WHY DO YOU KEEP REPLYING TO EACH OTHER?!
Why drugs? If these guys were on drugs, they prob would not have built
these things becasue they'd be sitting around either twitching, or hanging
over the chair arms saying "heeeeyyyy doooooood......"
IMo, more power to them - whatever one might think aesthetically, I think
it's great that some people still not only dream, but ignore the naysayers
and negativists to pursue those dreams. Ther are all sorts of
dreams/inspirations, and IMO, hey, go for it.
If nothing else, one cannot legitimately accuse them of being "mere
I couldn't see the link, but if it was Watts Towers, I remember going there
for a school trip. Wasn't built by any architect, just a construction
worker in his spare time, using whatever he could find. I think of it more
as a large sculpture rather than architecture, though it is thought to be
along vernacular architectural lines. Pretty amazing up close, though it
was so long ago.
THe link had several examples o fpersonally-created "structural
sculptures"/"sculptural structures". THey seem to blur the line between
architecture and sculpture in the sense that some can be entered, tho' I'm
not so sure whetehr one could say that they actually function as buildings.
But it's still really cool IMO that peole do this sort of thing :)
((I've only seen pics, myself.))
But I see you as, more often than not, missing/losing grip and falling
And when some point to the shit on your own face and nose, it's like you
don't seem to know quite what they're talking about.
In any case, and as you might have suggested, the decades-long shit is
getting old, dry and cracked. How about putting it out to pasture? :)
