    this man did not create or inspire Lost, so please stop reccing him for his nominal association with an excellent program.

      If George Bush didn't exist, we'd have to invent him... and then we'd think, "Why the fuck did we go and do that?"

        Because then, yeah, a little. Don't drink and comment, people. Otherwise no, just bored and naked and on the internet way past my bed time.

        But... a little, really a little bit annoyed by the "hey, I confess I may be a hot-shot screenwriter--as some of your private detectives, hot on my trail have somehow discovered--but I still have time to rag on bloggers and Family Circus with my adoring fans in between 'tinis with Aaron" shtick.

        (Yes, I am aware that's a long name for a shtick).

        I actually didn't recognize your name until after I made the first post. I kept thinking, "Man, where do I know that from? Did I have a back-and-forth in a comment box with this guy the other night?" But yeah, okay. I went overboard. My bad.

          ...but I don't think I've ever ragged on bloggers.

          As for reccing me or reading me based on my association with the show you mention... I totally agree... if that's why people are here... well, this is not that show.

          Look, I'm just part of the large canvass here and you should feel very free to spend your time concentrating on the OTHER corners if mine seems... wrong for you.

          Other than that... be well.

          ...your post in another one of my diaries:

          I joined here MONTHS BEFORE Lost ever was on the air (so my using my name had nothing to do with that)... summer of 2004... and never told anyone who I was (especially considering my professional credits are under Jeffrey Lieber)... and never once mentioned what I did, until and unless some other people brought it up... and I made my name HERE (or at least started to) three days before the show premiered.

          Happily or sadly (depending on your POV) my whatever here is based more on a dildo than on a TV show.

          Now, I'll leave you the last word... as Bill O would say.

          If George Bush didn't exist, we'd have to invent him... and then we'd think, "Why the fuck did we go and do that?"

            I was definitely out of line last night (and/or this morning), and you have entertained me even as I insulted you. I cannot bring myself to fault a man who has owned or operated a dildo with a crank. That is a hilarious concept.

            I wonder if the design was somehow inspired by those hand-cranked emergency radios NPR is always trying to give away.

            "How much would you pay for the peace of mind that comes with knowing you will always have a dildo--even when the storm comes." [Dramatic scene of couple taking shelter in the basement while a tornado rages outside...]

            It's like, an earwig. But scaaary.

             title=

            I can't say I had any coherent thought other than "Wow, earwig + fear = good user name" when that came to mind. Plus, there's the whole scary wig angle... you know, it works on so many levels. Deep stuff.

    •  Wow! (0+ / 0-)

      No wonder I never heard of him prior to Daily Kos.
      (What can I say? As far as I'm concerned Lost is Gilligan's Island on steroids with a twist of mystery lime added for effect... sorry, I don't watch it.)

      It is this simple. Vote Republican- Iraq is Forever. Vote Democratic- Iraq is history.
