Come sweet death (by poison-tipped lances)



Keep or remove? Let a brother know.

This is my third take at a title: The call is for something dark and brooding and non-pansyish. Hopefully this will do. But if not, be sure to let me know. I'll be sure to change it for you.

I always do.

Oh you know it's a keep. After eyeballs, hands, and zombies, shadows is your middle name.

shinigami-sidhe said...

Keep, but give it a more awesome title and a poetry quotation.

Julie said...

It's a keeper.

Squish said...

Justcurious- agreed. it is a keeper.

It looks like it's reaching out to stab you in the gut, so it definitely needs a good title.

MB- How on earth do you do it?
It's sickening the amount of things you even think to capture. It's all so different too with subtle similarities. Maybe you should have a photo gallery one day. You are ridiculous. Truly ridiculous.

Andy D. said...

What a Pansy title. I don't like it.

I mean I don't like it, Bert.

Mike Bailey said...

Andy D: Whatever. I changed it for you. Be at peace.

Squish: Your compliments sit quite well with me.

More seriously, I really am touched. Thanks.

Andy D. said...

Now THAT'S a title!!

Look, just because I haven't joined the ranks of all your new adoring followers (Squish... ok, just Squish), doesn't mean you don't have to completely drop everything and pander to me too like you do them. Her/him. Whounsoever.

That's a long way of saying, thank you!

Do you want to play a game?

This follows on the "who's in, who's out" as to identifying themselves comments from a couple posts ago, which were sparked by MB basically putting his entire social security card, birth certificate, and six-generation family tree up on this previously anonymous blog, without consulting with any of us about it first...

If MB were to host the requested "blog watchers party" (which I personally appreciate the asking for, but believe would be a ghastly outcome for probably 8 reasons, 7 having to do with MB himself...but which would be fun nonetheless) --

Which of us would have to travel the farthest to be able to attend?

I will volunteer that I'm in K.C., which is a fur piece, but that my guess is it ain't me.

Mike Bailey said...

Andy--where's the party going to be hold, dopo? I propose we hold it at someone cool's house. And that rules out me. I'm not cool. My house isn't cool.

Mike Bailey said...

Reason number 7 for why it'd end in disaster: As each guest arrives they're handed a sledgehammer and directed to the backyard, where they discover multiple cubes of concrete and stop watches.

Andy D. said...

Ah yes, party foul number one, MB mistakes the requested "rockin', swingin' party" for us wanting to swing sledgehammers against his driveway.

And be timed, by him. And probably videod or photographed.

Look, your house would just have to do. But it would be ok.... Even if the party sucks, we can hit Taco Bell for the fifth meal, after.

Thought: Drunken party game suggestion - "Let's see who can do the most damage to the Taco Bell with his or her sledgehammer, in five minutes!! Go!!"

headline: "Local 'Art Photog' Nabbed and Held as Taco Bell Smashup Mastermind". (click here for link to security camera video of The Smashup)

NC, not quite as far as KC.

squash said...

Ditto.

anonymous (on occasion) said...

And ditto again.

This is so liberating.

Andy D. said...

"Police say the suspect -- Berry Professor Michael Bailey --had unwittingly posted all his personal details, including specific details of the planned Smashup, and the drunkfest that would spawn it, on his website.

"Local experts have described the website as equal parts political commentary, movie talk site, zombie fansite, Marlon Brando lovers site, and general misanthropy. They say the posters have no real business commenting to anyone, about anything, but seem content to bicker with one another about Bailey's photographs, which lately seem to be posted by Bailey purely to antagonize his loyal readers.

"And that," commented the local police chief, "is where Bailey seized the opportunity to test a little 20-year-old theory of his, against the poor local Taco Bell."

Julie said...

Honestly, I am the only loser on here using my real name! I want a secret identity!

Shazam said...

Think I figured out how you bloggers do it...
Now nobody knows who I am! POW!

Anonymous II said...

Oh I'm sorry anonymous. I think I was anonymous II.

justcurious said...

Really? You two are from NC as well?

Mike Bailey said...

Oh Shazam, I like the real you better.

Andy D. said...

I'm sorry, but I have to say it like Gomer Pyle: shuh-ZAYAM!!!

shinigami-sidhe said...

I'd be coming from Houston. And I'm really cool, so we could have it at my house, and my house is cool because it used to be an abortion clinic and it is right next door to a morgue, but I have no furniture and no air conditioning. Also, no money for large amounts of concrete cubes and sledgehammers, so it would have to be "bring your own implements of demolition."

Mike Bailey said...

sh-s: Man, you make a compelling case! I'm buying a ticket!!

Squish said...

Andy- adoring follower? I am glad I have been downgraded to a brown nosed middle schooler. Thank you.

Mike Bailey said...

Squish--I, for one, think that Andy was a big ol' skunk face for saying that.

A regular Bert, the grump.

I, in contrast, was touched by your kind comments.

justcurious said...

S-S, you know what no furniture means! Lots of room for dancing.

Mike Bailey said...

And you need lots of room when you're dancing with a sledgehammer.

Andy D. said...

Sorry Squish, I underestimated you. Just know it wasn't personal, it was just designed let me label MB a Panderer.

With a capital Panda.

Andy D. said...

Oh and PS, just an observation -

A big, unruly group who don't know each other but have a common purpose? Coming from all around the country? Meeting at burned out morgues with no furniture? Bringing sledgehammers to destroy local businesses?

Merry Christmas, but what are we - The Fight Club??

Geez, Louise!!!

justcurious said...

Throw in the multiple personalities and this could be the best Christmas party EVER.

Andy D. said...

Somebody please, post a 30th comment and set a record.

Ok I'll do it.

shinigami-sidhe said...

Now Andy D, what's merrier? A party with lots of noise where we KNOW the neighbors won't complain, or going shopping for Christmas presents with a bunch of people that you not only don't know, most of them are probably angry and snappish and have no way of expressing their frustration with soulless capitalism other than to turn on each other? We don't know each other, but we love each other, and should holiday irritation arise, we have sledgehammers and targets that aren't each other.

Andy D. said...

You're right. I'm in.
