Very, very funny. Especially the vandals.

Sounds like a whiny-ass loser to me.

Sounds like Steve to me.

steve mueske said...

Poor Alan. Don't you have a cape or something to put on?

steve mueske said...

Oh, I'm sorry, whining about getting a bag of weed with too many stems in it, not being recognized by a professor on the street, talking about skipping class because there wasn't beer in the fridge ... obviously a paragon of virtue.

Tony said...

Damn, Steve---

Seems pretty hilarious to me.

Hi Steve. No cape, but I do accept thanks for your new guidelines. They look pretty tight. I wonder why you changed them, seeing as how you were so defensive last time around . . .

Funny? Not funny?

Hi Tony. What happened to your douchebag post? That was pretty funny.

steve mueske said...

The guidelines are the same as before; the only difference is that I've made them more explicit. They were the same guidelines I operated under last time.

Well, maybe Eduardo will ask me to ask this elsewhere, but for the benefit of people who might be interested in entering the contest, would you please explain the phrase "worked with the editor in some business capacity prior to the opening of the competition"? Specifically, foetry forum members might like to know if there is a way you handle manuscripts submitted by people you have published in your journal. Are they anonymous when you read them? Can poems that have appeared previously in your journal be included in the manuscript? Thanks in advance. Al

Alan Cordle said...

Ah. Just reread the guidelines. No need to respond. Sorry I missed that extra sentence.

Tony said...

Hi Alan,

I still think you're a douchebag.

That's not funny. Just my impression. You spend entirely too much energy picking on people...and for what?

Tony

Hi Tony,

I tried to befriend you -- to give you a chance to meet the actual person -- not the foetry persona, and you rejected my offer multiple times, though we live close to each other. It would take one hour of your life: I'd buy you coffee or beer or whatever you like, we could talk about poetry, or anything you choose. Then if you still think I'm a douchebag, please, tell the world. Until then, we don't know each other, and I'm the sincere one.

Alan
