Meta-Post: The Nature of this Blog (and all the rest of the blogs)

My father recieved a phone call from one of my ex-girlfriends today. It seems that the one girl who I dated and eventually did not become at least cordial with is upset that I’m still hosting pictures of her. For better or for worse, I was forced to explain to my father why it is I’m hosting slightly pornographic pictures on my website. It’s a timely issue for me and several friends I know, so I figured that instead of writing her and futilely urging her to stop contacting my friends and relations to avoid a restraining order, I’d post about it. Clearly she reads the blog still, anyways, so it’ll amount to nearly the same thing. Incidentally, I wonder if there’s something in the water or the air of South Florida right now that is causing everyone who has ever crossed paths with me to cross swords with me right now. First Jason Friedman writing me a message defending his theft of monies from AACS, and now harassing phone calls from sore ex-girlfriends. One wonders. I mean, I truly haven’t thought of these people since I had contact with them, save for the occasional amusing anecdote about them in social situations. The reason I keep all those pictures of her in there still is that they are a record of my life, in a way. They are pictures that were given to me freely, or that I took myself in some cases, and they represent different eras in my past. I keep them there for the same reason I keep a lot of my old diary posts in...

I May Live in Interesting Times…

Tonight has been Grand Central Station on the phones today.  I think I may have spoken with almost every person I’ve ever met today.  Starting to remind me of the old days when everyone and their cousin had my phone number, and always called me. Not that I mind, but there are always a few people who get the shaft.  Tonight it was Darrell and Smokehouse who didn’t get to talk to me.. not because I value them less as friends, but it’s just that you feel obligated to talk to some people when they call when they only call once a month or a week or so.  Unfortunately they all called today. My father is coming into town not this weekend, but the next.  The impetus for this trip is the further aggrevated family situation I’ve alluded to here in the past.  I’m not quite comfortable talking about it on an open forum like this, but if you stick around long enough, I’ll probably get around to it. For you podcasters that read the site, if I keep at it for a couple more hours, I’ll have that HTTP upload component done for Rizzn’s Podcaster. Don’t despair.  In my work, I’ve found a bug in my code that I actually know how to fix that can increase the reliability of the email component by around 40%.  Good times, yes? It’s ever slow evolving into a real live good service.  Wait – I mean, Podcaster rocks now and forever! As an interesting and almost pointless project, I’ve compiled a short list of all the photographically documented romantic interests of...

I am posting this because I know it will annoy a certain somebody out of her mind.

[Rizzn’s Note: slimee still reads my site on a regular basis.  i just found her site today because I was searching thru my site logs, and she linked to me like a moron.  she wouldn’t give me this URL when we went out.  don’t know why.  don’t care.  anyways, when I found she posted about me and is so annoyed by every posting I do about her, I couldn’t refrain from annoying her further.  :)] ok, sooooo much has gone on!!! updating necessary!!! rizzn, who has despicable stuff written about me on his wannabe blog has written yet more!!!  it all started again because i objected to his keeping [okay… i probably earned that one.  some of the stuff I wrote probably qualifies as despicable. But wannabe blog?  You know I get way more traffic than you could dream of.] my full name posted (hes been openly slandering me since its been over, and now id rather not be associated with him), and asked him, via a very [slander, once again, dear moron, is when it’s not true.  I haven’t posted an untrue thing about you on this site.  plus, it’s written.  so it’s not technically slander even if it was untrue. lay off the dead languages and concentrate on English.]  nice private email, to remove it.  once again, he freaked, revealing that [no, actually, i didn’t freak.  I posted it to my website to show how much of a spiteful little girl you were being, with a point by point reply that incidently was much shorter than your original letter.] he is sub-human. he went totally overboard, polluting the internet with [sub-human?  woman,...

I've never known you to shy away from controversy….

But whatever. If you don’t want to be associated with me anymore, that’s your perogative. Let me just say that your request is insane, but obliged. If you were anyone else, I would not have taken your links or names off my site, but because we were such good friends in the past, I oblige your request. No, Laura, this entry is not about you. Quit reading my site. I think your analysis of my opinion is incorrect, for the record. I know you are up in arms about my Gay Marriages articles. That’s the only controversial thing I’ve had up here since my breakup fiasco, and I can’t imagine you being pissed about that. My opinion was that I officially don’t have an opinion. Not politically, anyways. I was attacking the guy’s debate tactics, not his position. But whatever. You said you didn’t want to debate about it. You said you didn’t want to be associated with me. You have been k-filed, k-lined, and ignored. When your analytical skills have reached a point where you can be reasonable, call me. I’m still the same guy you were friends with “back in the day.” For some reason you have shyed away from calling me your friend ever since I moved to Wylie. I’m not up for debate on it… at this point, I’m not interested.. I suppose this is the final nail in that coffin. Knowing you, you aren’t even going to have a second thought about this. You’re going to think, “hey, that’s how he wants to be, fsck’em.” At any rate, I’ve had time to think about...

True character is determined by what you do when no one else is looking. Once again, because of this letter I recieved from Laura, my ire is raised. It shouldn’t matter to me that every time she communicates with me my character is insulted, but for some reason it does. A Slimee Dittohead at the Top of His Game For some reason, I feel as though I must make a few points, despite the fact I feel my position needs no explanation. First of all, I’m not the one that started this war. I posted a simple thing to my site about what was going on in my life, and Laura unleashed her hounds on me. Within minutes, there were ten or fifteen posts to the comments section of my site attacking every aspect of my character, all using ammunition she had been using for a week previous. I was exercising my God-given right of free expression. I wasn’t really thinking about how old it made me appear. At this point still, I haven’t found a point in which I care how old it made me look. Another thing that I must explain my position on, since I’m not sure it’s been made explicit, is the reason why I decided to cut all contact with Laura… it’s a page out of the Code of the Samurai. Essentially, when you have a relationship of any kind other than blood-ties, and that relationship is detrimental to your health, (mental, spiritual, physical), you must cut it off. By the end of the evening described here, I was gone. Completely bonkers. Wrapping my...

[Letter from the Ex this morning]I hope life is treating you well. im sure you don’t want to be bothered with any of this, but unfortunately, there are a few things I need to talk to/ask you about. I wish I could offer eloquence here, but I guess I simply wont waste your time. its been a while since we last were in contact, and maybe youre less upset these days. the things you said both in person, and online were truly heart-breaking to me (I still really haven’t gotten over them completely)… its bad enough I had to endure all this when it happened, but to have it linger is really unbearable. all I really want is for you to end the continuing strife between us, and make the whole thing private. nobody deserves to have this kind of altercation broadcast in public. the issue of google is especially “unkind and destructive”. you either need to remove the post, or change my name. you wouldn’t appreciate it if this kind of thing were done to you, offering enough questionable shit to cause trouble in your personal and professional lives. ive been hesitant to post anything at all on your site from the beginning, and when I did, I was never ashamed to state my own identity. if it seemed to be posted by anybody else, then it was. I tried to be fair to you. and now, I ask that all this ugliness still there be removed/altered/made private. i ask that you be mature and professional. I ask that you let the two of us truly move on...

Draggin' Ass: Yes, THIS one is about you.

Today’s going to be a horrible day. I haven’t slept all night, and I have a full day of work ahead of me. “Why haven’t you slept all night, Rizzn?” you may ask. My ex-girlfriend made me move out of the apartment I was staying in, because her parents own it, and when you are the princess of the castle, you can make things like that happen. In case you were too drunk to get the message last night, Laura Colaner, hear me and hear me well: I never want to see you again. I’ve NEVER EVER heard out of anyone’s mouth the type of things you said to me. Furthermore, I never want to hear them again. I plan to accomplish this by never seeing you again. If you show up on my doorstep, I will call the police. If you call my phone, I will block your number. If you email me or message me, you will be k-filed. Do. Not. Ever. Contact. Me. Again. You. Crazy. Bitch. I’m sure at this point you have some little smug arrogant theory like you were trying to push on me last night why I’m behaving like this. Whatever floats your boat, think of whatever you want. I’m behaving like this because I’ve been lied to, as well as being mentally and emotionally abused. You’ve not only shown your capable of cruelty, malice, and spite as well as your inability to forgive, you’ve shown me that it is a major player in your general character. You act like you are being all selective when you say you don’t like characteristics...

Rough set of few days — real rough. Laura and I took it semi-easy today. I didn’t answer the phone much. Just couldn’t take it anymore. I shut down all the phones and turned on some music, and did relaxing things. As a consequence, I’ll be up until daylight doing my work, but damnit, it was worth it. Oh, and all you people in Miami afraid of this FTAA stuff might be interested in learning about the Anarchist Movement. /rizznOne more day, and I reveal a secret.
