In an added level of hilarious complexity, the comment that I had previously found that referenced attempting to try and make Ms Holm hate herself, may have actually been written by Ms Holm herself (or someone creating a convincing simulacrum commenting account).
In that same post I had wrote 2 words that make people uncomfortable. I believe I had made a referance to "that horrible word, N*****" and also suggested that Holms not be a C***, as her fave saying of late seems to be 'Don't be a Dick'. This seems fair to me. So, if I had to guess, I think Alison in particular cannot stand the word C*** for some reason, and it made me wonder if she was in charge of going through comments that day. If they put people in charge of such things. In another post I later quoted a bunch of derogatory names for just about all colors of people, and it had no problem with the editorial board of the MERC, so I guess it had to be the awful C word. Talk about hypocrisy though, The day before there was a pretty funny Sarah Silverman video where she was complaining about so-called divas and calling them c*** . Sticks and Stones people.
"As he tried to seal the bargain with a handshake, he saw what was in Monroe's right hand: a small pocketknife, with the blade extended."
By this point, Reister said, he'd already seen Monroe with a knife in his hands, and that he'd been fumbling with it.
It was "very clear," he told investigators, "it was a knife."
"Palmiter went to find the various bits Monroe had been tossing away. The knife was among them."
CLOSE READING. THANK YOU.
Never mind, I made an educated guess and googled it (hint: rhymes with bunt) along with "frankieb" and "barbara holm," and it still pops up.
Frankieb: what piece of constructive criticism towards Barbara almost got you banned? I know it wasn't when you posted that she'd "earned" being called a bimbo, although that comment's been scrubbed, too.
Okay, you convinced me. The pigs fucked up totally. The kid was probably just scared, and had the knife ready to defend himself. If he had actually threatened anybody with it, the article would have said so. I walk around downtown Portland all the time, wearing a trench coat concealing a katana, and nobody ever freaks out about that unless I open my coat to take a piss in a doorway.
Did anybody go? Did she show?
I like when you say that you're not going away. You stepped into a really true voice there.
People saying that you need to do a better job or write better or say you are creating straw men are so patronizing. You don't have to toe to their standards.
I hope helmets are included in this project.
That song sucked in '89 and it sucks now.
I mean, really, have you actually smelled his anus? You'd probably be too high to say hello too.
Dirk:Despite what you say,I am rooting for the Buckeyes.
Todd, to be fair, I'm pretty tolerant of my dog, Malcolm.
This is gonna be such a cute story to recount at Barbara and Graham's wedding.
Thanks for turning Blogtown into Tumblr! What the Portland/Seattle corridor was REALLY lacking was a winsome type with zero sense of the comedic craft to tell us about words we shouldn't use and why we shouldn't use them. I've only been to college, like many people here, and I've only traveled around the country and the world, meeting a variety of different races, cultures, genders, and potato products. I don't always remember that the N-word is bad, or that an indignant hipster screeching at me to be nice is supposed to turn me into Andrea Dworkin.
Also notable tard emiritus from that g-Rant class is W+K current director of digital media, he'srightyourwrong. Hey that's me!
She hates herself, like most people do, and is a young person searching for an identity. I thinks she's trying on defensive feminist right now and it's not working out too well for her. She'll move on to something else soon; she's already changed the name of her column after a just a few months.
Please don't confuse critisism of your blog as an attack upon feminism itself.
You seem nice enough, and 'true of heart'.
The goal is constructive critisism, though I realize I can sound harsh, for my own part.
@tk I definitely recommend getting it at a sale price. It is super fun, but it's not something you'll be playing forever.
Yay Barbara! I'm happy you keep writing this column and making great comedy. Don't let the haters (whether they be in comment threads, in insane emails or confusingly passionate facebook posts) get you down.
