Well, it got so that every piss-ant prairie punk who thought he could shoot a gun would ride into town to try out the Waco Kid. I must have killed more men than Cecil B. DeMille. It got pretty gritty. I started to hear the word “draw” in my sleep. Then one day, I was just walking down the street when I heard a voice behind me say, “Reach for it, mister!” I spun around… and there I was, face-to-face with a six-year old kid. Well, I just threw my guns down and walked away. Little bastard shot me in the ass. So I limped to the nearest saloon, crawled inside a whiskey bottle, and I’ve been there ever since. ~ Jim from Rock Ridge
Angela from Kansas City would like a further word with the Slabbed Nation:
Slabbed–still don’t know who runs the show here,but, hey . . . I was pleasantly surprised to see you post my response, although disappointed that you still hide behind a pseudonym. I do have to admit, I can see why you do this. It must be somewhat addicting to see your words generate such strong emotions from so many people. ~ Angela from Kansas City
This, in reality is a two part question so I’ve taken the liberty of breaking it down.
First the use of an internet handle or as Angela puts it, hiding “behind a pseudonym”. I will admit to getting kinky once or twice with an antonym. That said I neither admit nor deny the specific allegation, which in my opinion is a lazy person’s attack on a blogger. That said and despite the fact that Angela is too lazy to find the information she desires on her own, we’ll give her a steer by linking this. I will add, unequivocably that in the interim, my respect for Wayne from DC has increased a good bit as further elements of the microcosm of society that is the Slabbed Nation has manifested itself through time.
One other thing and the reason you see Sop here on Slabbed is that the Sop brand carries a certain gravitas in certain financially savvy circles. I was pleasantly surprised to learn just this morning that someone would indeed capitalize on the name similarity to take our Scott Walker coverage to an international finance forum. Those people up in Wisconsin seem mighty pissed off these days. Gives ’em something in common with the good folks in Libya to boot.
The second part of the question: The addictive power of using art of the written word to move people to comment with such emotion.
I’ve always said that sometimes when asking questions, a poster/commenter will reveal something about themselves and I think that is true here. It is clear IMHO that Angela is descended from Sigmund Freud as she so freely opine on what might motivate one to blog, especially in this area of the country. For those that are tuned into the human psyche and the art of communication, the fact that Adolf Hitler frequently ejaculated during his speeches is commonly known, for example, so I guess it is a fair question albeit one that I can only address on my behalf.
The blogging is a means to an end. Eyes on the prize.
Hopefully our own Carnac reads this and chips in as we’re more into the paranormal down here at Slabbed. You know Angela, voodoo and stuff. If any of our readers have any questions for me or Nowdy please send them in by emailing me or using the contact box. As always we thank you for your support.
