YOU: Slightly chubby blond who leaned forward to reveal cleavage on the 1/9 train. ME: looking down your shirt, masturbating furiously several hours later. Wanna talk? Call me 217-2316.

06/4/2004 Will Disney: is this a 212 number?
06/4/2004 anonymous: 718 actually
06/4/2004 Ewan Snow (3): 718? Fuck Brooklyn. Three stars.
06/4/2004 scoop (1): Manhattan is for posers.
06/4/2004 anonymous: 1 star???
06/4/2004 scoop: Yeah.
06/4/2004 qualcomm (2): i'll give it this many.
06/4/2004 anonymous: well, i thought this one was kinda funny! also very short.
06/4/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum: Scoop: It's spelt poseurs.
06/4/2004 anonymous: jimson, vote you coward!
06/4/2004 scoop: I was going to try to say Manhattan is a place for puzzling questions, but that's not true. I just spelt it wrong. Anyway, I love Manhattanites, they have lots of big ideas about things. By the way Jimson, when are you returing to the thick, vaginal fold of acme's authorial ranks? Your unique perspective is missed.
06/4/2004 Dylan Danko (3):
06/4/2004 TheBuyer (3): musta had erotica or something written on her tits.
06/4/2004 Jon Matza (4): I'm giving this a four with the intention of conveying to the author that I liked his short.
06/5/2004 scoop: Matza: Would you have given this a four if Texxx were still an author, I wonder?
06/5/2004 Jon Matza: I doubt it...but that presupposes a different intellectual atmosphere than currently exists. To me this influences how I read & how much I enjoy a short. Plus this short's lack of a narrative voice calling attention to itself via useless details, pointlessly inflated verbiage & incorrect usages would have suggested it wasn't Texxx. What about your cruel vote? To me one star means beyond not funny, i.e., intellectually/ aesthetically abhorrent in some way. Explain!
06/5/2004 scoop: Not cruel, friend, just honest. If this were a guest short I probably would have given it another star. But I was offended by the idea that an author with an understanding of this site would post something that pandered so pathetically to the lowest common denominator. More than anything it's so wantonly obvious. It lacks any interesting detail work that might, and I emphasize might, rise this thing out of the chuckling frat boy morass.
06/5/2004 Jon Matza: Yeah, you have a point. I might have slipped up here. FU Disney!
06/6/2004 Mr. Pony:
06/6/2004 qualcomm: are you saying someone's talking out of their anus, pony? i told you to stop thinking in pictures. now look at what's become of you!

06/6/2004 Mr. Pony:
06/6/2004 qualcomm: yeah i think in words, so i don't know what you mean.
06/6/2004 scoop: I think in porno so I have a hard weiner.
06/6/2004 Mr. Pony:
06/6/2004 Mr. Pony:
06/6/2004 qualcomm: how long must i stare at the pony hypno-beam before i understand?
06/6/2004 scoop: until tuesday.
