Thankfully, with the microbrew revolution that is sweeping across america, there is some damn fine beer available.

A friend of mine goes to estate sales and looks for artwork created by schizophrenics. She has contacts with estate brokers and verifies that the artists were indeed schizophrenic. I've seen some of her collection: "angels divine" devouring children, dark forests with eyes, and more.

Oh, and "Betty" is Betina, a woman who sells absinthe.

By Verdigris_Harpy on Thursday, February 07, 2002 - 10:08 am: Edit

Just my own epidermal paranoia showing...
No,I'm not Betty..Betty White? Who the
Heck is Betty? Me and my friends say I am
a female cross of Fox Mulder and Betty White.

Ok I do this for the good of the one, the few,
and the many.Copies of my birth certificate
available for sale,BIN $1,021.95 on eBane.
Real nee name-Lisa Ann Speer.Prefer to spell
ann- anne,not because of Anne Rice but because
I likes in better like that.

When I'm a dead and buried dead artist,
and my freak a zoid weird art,and my "early
works" representational art pieces, are pulled
out from under my bed and sold at Christie's
and on eBerries for googles,you may all say "she was the mentally ill artiste who flipped her nut on an absinthe list!"

And you can sell my birth certificate copies
for big moola,or wear them on on chains around
you necks.

In absurdity

unfortunately anna magnani is dead. please call me larsbogart. feel free to make light of my situation, all my friends do. contrary to what most top bush officials might say, thats life. my condition remains at least until winter is over and my forced agoraphobia.

By Verdigris_Harpy on Thursday, February 07, 2002 - 12:34 am: Edit

I wrote that last post when I was feeling
overwhelmed.It was more important to me to
say something which I needed to say both for
my own emotional peace and to hopefully
actually help out,in maybe some small way,
even if I messed it all up the first time around,
a real person.

I was in no state of mind to go back over and
re edit my post,and in my opinion ,right or
wrong,it was more important to send that post
then and there no matter the state
of editing.

I am not saying the following as an excuse
or a plea for pity,however biological illness,
not just poor typing and computer skill,
causes some loss of mental and physical
cooridation for me,under stress.In the future
I will take greater care.

In this case it was not an option
and I did not wish to wait until morning
to send that message to Lars.

With hope he will understand both the
meaning in my message and forgive my
temporary loss of coordination.

Lars or whatever you would actually
prefer to be called.isuppose I ought to
wait for your response.But look.I was not
making light of your situation or telling
you to tone down a serious problem to a
habit.I thought you actually wanted me to
tell you something,help in some form,based
on what you'd read about my situations.

I have agorophobia and everytime I ahve to
leave the house to do any thig at all it
is a major thing,some tmes better sometims
alot worse.for years so bad didn
even take teh trash out til it was all
pieled in heaps in my kitchen i n the corner,

i laid it onthe line for uyou told you
all about my own spooks in my own head
my own paranoia it was true.not something
I was jsut jokig about.

seeing things in theceiling? real.

the tv and raddio on 24 hrs a day for over a
week and most of the time with oen or
the other for the past 15 yrs real.

the cardss talking to me from my compurr
real too.

not meaning to yell or argue with you
or anyhting else but look.
i did my best to offer what I coild to you in
sincerity in true caring out of kowing
the pain of beiign locked in a freaky hell
with no where to go.
I sign ed my real name cause I was taling
to you as a real person not
a cartoon character on a mailing list.

if youa re not bugged at me andi have it
allw wrong i apologize

i do care what you are goign threough
een tough i dont knwo you really.

take care
i gotta
go to bed

Hey Lars

Can this anna lady come to my house and cure

thanks for the all tips, i think i got it. i didnt tell you there are times when im listening to the TV and Radio simultaneously while im reading and typing at a keyboard? then it all makes sense and everythings normal. other times it just gives me a headache and i go weeeee.....

By Verdigris_Harpy on Wednesday, February 06, 2002 - 09:39 pm: Edit

Hi L

I tried to send a message before and it vanished,
so here is again..I still have my TV
on alot..I used to keep my radio on all the time
when I did'nt have a TV.They keep the scary
pictures and noises in our heads at bay,but
then soemthing even spookier starts to occur.

The TV and the radio and computer are not
talking to you.The stuff coming out of them at
you is combining with the scary stuff in your
brain and has created Your Own Private Idaho.

I know of what I speak.Just a couple months
ago the computer solitaire cards were starting
to whisper the secrets of the universe at me.

My first suggestion is to make an appointment
ASAP with a psych doc.Get a referral from your
regular doc,a friend,a local hospital,the local
mental health association,whatever works.

Next,do'nt think you have to turn off the
tv,radio,etc.They are not intrinsically bad,
and for now they are your comforts and security,
real or not.Until you can at least partially
replace them with competant care and therapy,
do'nt worry about it.

I would suggest trying to do other things
while they are on ,read etc which I am sure
you do,so you are not staring at the screens

A last very important tip.Do'nt dwell too
much about your weird thoughts and what
they might mean or if you ought to be afraid of
them.Thinking about thinking,and fear of fear,
can lead down a loopy,spooky road and you do'nt
need any more of that.Until you can get into see
a doc,do the things that you already know help
set your mind at ease..

truth beauty freedom,and love

take care,

..(harpy shoves Sally Field off the stage,causing
her to weep harder and tear silk panty hose..)

[im still laughing...that was good.]

this is just between you and me, ok? recently i leased a dell (sorry vera) and they were giving away those palm things, you know, the cheap ones. so i was playing around on it, peckin with that little needle and making masterpiece after masterpiece on note pad by the full light of the not-highdefinition TV challenging my eyesight.
the TV was ON because im afraid to turn it OFF. i have been for years, the current TV has been on since 1986, although i didnt think it would become something that might be a danger to myself until just recently. but you hit the nail on the rusty head.
im getting to the point, so after needling, i look at the palm M105 and it says to me:
"The time to proterct your future is now. dont take another step, marie osmond media tycoon. do you think youre normal, connie chung? blue skys and green lights.
yes! this stylsh home furnishing commercial
was filmed using an extrordinary lipstick, 'covered in smoke'. choose!
when youre here your fuckin family.
the muscles are made on the job not the gym..."

"so your a writer eh?
"of sorts." "ever do an honest days work in your life?" "try to." "know what this is?" "a hand?" "a workingmans hand." "ive done farm work and timber." "what kind of timber?" "spruce." "what kind of saw you fool?" "power saw". "very unconvincing".

whoever really makes this thing suggest you change batteries one at a time, never really turning it off. i couldnt believe i was reading that, just like me not turning off the TV. that stated me thinking "they" were listening again.
which means i wont sleep tonight.

He will have to start going on Barney

For Harpy, because she likes the great God Pan. This is from a friend of mine:


For my people (you know who you are)

I am among the blessed.

I am of the kind who leaves the glaring tube, remembering

And goes to watch the moon rise silver through the trees

Breathing purple and chill, stinging pine. I am

Among the blessed: I know the acacia, the first daffodil,

The irises unsheathing cream and violet labia in the green wet of May.

I tune for the new music on the radio: I turn it up.

I am among the blessed: I drink wine by firelight, clothes rank with smoke,

Bright silver twisted through my lobes. I know secrets;

They are tattooed on my body where the sleeves can cover them,

They read

Blessed, and only if we are lucky enough, you and I, courageous enough

To shed our clothes together will you read them. Seeing scarlet leaves drift down,

Perhaps, with ice around the moon, or the steel bones of the oaks against Orion,

Knowing we are among the blessed, that we miss nothing, that we will eat this life

Like a chocolate mango, like Beethoven ice cream, like silver roses

Moaning our joy with each sweet bite.

Strange, I was just listening to that song while reading this thread. Actually, I listened to the whole Nick Drake box set today. I'm a huge fan. I even visited the town where he spent most of his life (Tanworth-in-Arden), saw his house, and visited his humble grave while in England in 1998. A tremendous talent, gone too early from this earth.

I am capable of writing in prose.I do not love

What is good for the one is good for the many.

is a beverage best served in black and white

Everyday you can see
Changes in her hair and smile
I can wait a million days
While her smile goes away

Sometimes i feel dizzy
By the slices in her hands
Secrets in her lipstick mouth
Shiny on her again
Shiny on her again

Capture her smile and then that's all
You won't know her so it's okay
Funny how things change
Funny how things chang

Just not the romantic
boy girl intercourse

Friends and
the company of like minded
googy heads
on another Ether

black jelly beans.

in affection,
claws in.

I have done my best to ignore holidays for many years as a policy. (Even when I was a kid, I used to ask why, if the Christmas spirit was so great, people practiced it only a couple weeks a year, and went on being greedy bastards for the rest of it.) Couldn't manage that with Valentine's Day when I delivered flowers. That was a freakin' zoo. Worked a twelve hour day with extra rental vans and temp workers... people are lemmings.

Personally, aside from the resentment problems of the have-nots, I never understood why a have would appreciate his/her/its lover making a gesture which basically conveys conformity, predictability, and lack of imagination. Valentine's Day is the least romantic day of the year on which to do something romantic.


By Verdigris_Harpy on Tuesday, February 05, 2002 - 09:31 pm: Edit

That sounds like fun.
How about letting the streets
run red with the blood of long
dead christian marytrs,feral ferrets,
polka dot minkees,and chupacabras..
Then Mr Rabid can dress in a giant
cardboard heart candybox and sing
pagan love cries before tossing
shredded hallmark cards,red hots,and stale
hard,penis shaped choco-Peeps
to valkyrie shrieks . !

then run rampant

love love love!!!!!!!

I think we should all talk about our favorite love songs for valentines day... mine is here:


There's subtitles too!

By Auntieminda on Tuesday, February 05, 2002 - 09:15 pm: Edit

I believe we should declare February 13th, the evening before Valentine's Day, to be Valentine's Eve, the night when all the blackhearted among us ride out unchecked,like Valkyries hunting the souls of saccharine sweethearts through the streets. I declare it shall be a night of wild revelry and dark dancing that will put the Bacchante to shame. Euan Euan Eu Oi Oi Oi Oi!

Red valentines,
my heart is made of cardboard
behind it I stand, a rampant swelling cock
a dick behind a duckblind
just waiting, waiting
too see if she will fall
for the bait
for me
this little box of chocolates set like a snare

my second layer of decoy
sex, hot and ready
only a trap
to try to make her love me

"I beg whatever Illuminati are in charge of these matters to reinvent the Valentine's Day rituals. "

Your request has been duly noted and we are considering introducing as a replacement Saint Christina the Astonishing Day, where you can demonstrating your undying devotion by strapping your loved ones to water-mill wheels, locking them in coffins or keeping them in dungeons.

I was born bent.came out that way.No

from being flayed and fed on by why I thought
was a friend of six years.I have no mouth(hahaha!!!)and I must scream(you aint heard
nothin yet.I dont bite less bitten first...)
and have little skin left right now.
End pity party for me.My teeth at the

by stainless steel,so,,,

I love you Mr Rabid.Can I start stalking
you immediately?Jesus.The police are

window...really..I know drug real from real real..

Love in slavering red heaps...

Fuckin a right Harpy.

Welcome (since I didn't say it before.)

This place is like (as it's been said many times) a punk rock stripper bar crossed with a parisian cafe.

The main thing to keep in mind is that flames are rampant, but essentially good for entertainment or to ignore. Whatever you do, don't get bent out of shape over it if (when) it happens.

Like, Anatomist is a cool guy (for instance), but he has a wit like barbed, rusty wire. Nothing to take take too seriously around here though.

Life was easier in Communist Poland, not merely because of blissful prepubescence and obliviousness to the madly competitive Capitalistic hell out there.

We knew not of the existence of Valentine's Day. Perfect, happy innocence from that wretched holiday.

Since about the age of 16, I have managed to be in only the kind of relationships that begin in late February at the earliest and end late January of the following year at the latest.

Therefore I've had bad PMS cramps more romantic than my Valentine's Day, pretty much throughout my adolescence and young adulthood.

But anyway, that's personal. I can deal. On a grander scale, I find Valentine's Day in general to be more cliche-ladden, more "antierotic" (thank you Don) than any other holiday. Halloween is more sensual than this cardboard-boxed, cellophane-wrapped, sickly sweet bullshit.

I beg whatever Illuminati are in charge of these matters to reinvent the Valentine's Day rituals. Make us all go out and buy new nail polish and curtains instead of sickening chocolates, hallmark cards and roses. Invent some sort of human sacrifice or a plant life to hang with ornaments and treats. Anything but this pink-hued, sexless angst fest.

Just for you Rabid, I dumped her! On the phone!!!

Ain't that a bitch??? High Five!

(goddamn I miss them titties...)

By Mr_Rabid on Tuesday, February 05, 2002 - 04:36 pm: Edit

Ah yes- that time of year that says 'remember when you had that special someone and you were in love together and everything was wonderful and even the bad times were so much better than the best ones before? And then she dumped you?


Gaze upon these cupids, these gushing red cardboard hearts, and despair!

Bite into these chocolate candies! Twice as bitter as wormwood, and all they cost you was everything good you ever had.

But wait- there's more to come! Yes, you may yet receive a perfunctory valentine from someone at work, or a family member! Oooh! Dig that warm squishy simulated sentiment! Almost as good as the real thing, but only it's not even close.

Not sure how to wind up this most perfect day?

Summon up Venus, with chants and charms and incantations- invite her over for roast cupid, perhaps a consomme made of young lovers, a glass of battery acid and for dessert, send her to the blackest pits of Hell, tell her to coo her lies into the festering ear of Satan.

Bitter? Moi?

I'm ducking everyday.if I
do'nt I might burst into flame
just by walking by a church.

I went to see The Last Temptation of Christ.
I throw Adventist pamhplets in the kithcen trash,
with the banana peels.

And if I do'nt get some good lovin soon,
I will become an involuntary born again
virgin(a truly perverse concept and club).

Do I have to marytr a christian on
valentines day?

Can I eat a polka dotted minkee broasted
in absinthe,wrapped in banana leaves,
and cooked on "Defrost" in my microwave

Am I a pyscho troll for
thinking in heritical

do'nt answer.I may paint my apartment
black,Lovecraftian Mists green,and then
run amok through the
avenues of the valley.....

V Day is a heinous
and hideous excuse for
a holiday.

Celebrating the life
of a rather vile individual.

Not to mention a day
to celebrate guilt,shame,passive-aggressive
behavior, forced affection, and
staged romance.

Plus the cards are ugly as sin.

On the plus side,there is chocolate in
abundance,rich foods filled with butter
and cheese over lots of pasta and shellfish,
adults who loosen up and go to Disneyland and
make out in the Haunted Mansion and the Peter
Pan Ride,"excuses" to get together with friends
and watch The Lifetime Channel all day
and industrial films on menstruation,hygene,
and dating etiquette circa 1950-1975 while
eating gourmet foods,Eazy Cheez,and (with hope)sipping "funny green cordials".(No,I would'nt invite a date to bash like this..athough it
would be evil-ly fun....)

Zippin my keyboard shut now.
