MKMOT (August 2, 2012)

To those of you who don't have time for long form pieces, here is the condensed version of the open letter from our helicopter boss who won't go away founder.


Look, I'm going to do this one little posty thing and then vanish, because I don't agree with any of what I'm about to write. I love miniature Pete Gaines. [editors' note: I have no idea what this means.] I'm somehow in Denton's camp. I hate to say it, but blame Denton all you want, if any of you die of syphilis. 
            With love,
IMG

Feel free to read the long version. I highly recommend it to any of you who are into (Denton) fan fiction. Go ahead and join IMG on the high road. For those of you who like fun, veer off behind me as I take you on a joyride down the low road. It gladly accepts your traffic, and it's open.

  2. Guy Who is not Raysism and is a little bit jealous of that factAugust 2, 2012 at 9:44 AM

    Hopefully everyone caught it or saw Drew's tweet, but Raysism just dropped what will surely be in the COTY contention in the Dominique Moceanu post.

    1. I guess we should also give credit to Joey Barton, because he was going to make the same exact joke.

    2. It must have been while he was kissing Ray.

  3. To all the Guy Whos and Burner accounts -

    You want to criticize things? Fine. Put your name* on it. Anything else is weak.


    * By name, I mean commenting handle.

    2. What about if I just make dumb jokes and don't rip on people with my Guy Who hilarity?

  4. Since I've decided not to rip poor comments in threads, I'll do it here; Flapship, fuck right off.

  8. Look, "good natured" friend who I just dismissed over at Deadspin. I really don't care what goes one here or on twitter - it isn't much of a secret that I get bored and stir things up occasionally. I know some don't like it, but come on ... everyone here is just killing time. Why not have some fun while doing so? You can call me crazy all you want, but it's an act, just like yours.

    But for the last year, I have kept it clean over at Deadspin and so should you. The comments you referenced in your dismissed reply all either came from twitter or from open threads where I was actively engaged with the EIC. None were during joke posts. So, knock it off. Or put your "name" to it.

    My family is back in the US all summer, and I just got some devastating personal news. The intersection of time, opportunity and (frankly) anger have left me even more willing to play around than normal. So, I'm playing around here and on twitter. That makes me different from you only in that I use my own handle when doing so.

    Sack up and do the same.

    1. Hand to God, I was the one here yesterday (and a lot of the other times), but I'm not the one who came at you on Deadspin. As you said, keep that shit here or whatever, but not there.

      Delete
    2. Also, on the real, I bust your balls here, but I'm sorry for whatever personal things you have going on right now. I may be an asshole, but I'm not evil.

      Delete
    3. That's actually fine with me. I enjoy it here (well, I sometimes get angry, but then I enjoy it upon reflection). But it doesn't belong over there. This was a nice wakeup that there are those who are perhaps less "nuanced" than you who take their cue and randomly attack across platforms.

      And, thanks. I'm an asshole too but hopefully not evil, so at least we have that in common.

      Now, back to searching "____ hereditary?" for another 5 hours.

    6. @DubaiAt Night

      You're a fine commenter, and I'm a guy who makes lukewarm comments once in a blue moon, and I say this without the slightest trace of personal animosity or rivalry, and with my Deadspin handle attached so as to satisfy your apparent preference for one alias over another: if the last two days are representative of your habit of "stirring shit up" for your own amusement, the habit is obnoxious and you come off looking like a combative jerk with thin skin and no sense of humor. Loath though I am to agree with a Guy Who burner, yesterday you definitely seemed to have temporarily lost your mind, both on Twitter and here on MKMUB.

      I don't happen to believe the version of events that includes you doing this shit because you "like to stir shit up". I think you're a sucker for drama and overreact to a challenge, and that makes you roughly like many, many other people, but I think if you could step back from the act for a bit and see what it looks like from the other end, you'd be embarrassed and you'd stop as soon as possible. Yesterday, from one end of your conversation on MKMUB to the other, you looked like a guy who demanded attention for something that happened on Twitter and then threw a tantrum when you weren't happy with the nature of that attention.

      So there. You seem to be asking for feedback, so there it is. I laugh at your jokes and respect you as a commenter, and because of that, I feel compelled to give you the outsiders perspective on the other stuff you do under your DubaiAtNight handle.

    7. @Vuvs,

      Thank you. That is fair, and thank you for writing it with your handle attached (yes, that is my preference, as it should be for anyone reading this site - not all aliases are equal. And coming from a respected commenter like you, the comments are worth more.)

      For what it is worth, I agree - but I am what I am. The best I can say at this point is that I am honest about what and who I am. As you say, many, many other people are the same, but a few of them like to use "Guy Who" and burners so they protect their "reputation" on Deadspin.

      As for my explanation of the last two days ... well, you are wrong in the specifics but perhaps right in the general conclusion.

      Now I know you've lost your mind.

      Glad you took it the way it was intended. I'm not trying to go on the attack at all.

      Good talk.

    Oh yeah, this changes nothing. But I don't wish anything bad upon you. We'll continue this blood-feud at a later date.

      You know, clicking reply in the right spot isn't that hard. Well, for intelligent people anyway.

      As for the blood-feud, I'll stick with my own sources if that is OK with you. At least my kids are proven to be both disease free and have IQs slightly above those of the gerbils in my bathroom. You? well....

    Goddammit. It won't allow me to click reply, so my only option is to add a new comment. Two things:

    1. You did the exact same thing the other day
    2. Why do you have gerbils in your bathroom?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Look down at the website. Look for the orange text marked "reply." Click that.

      You're welcome.

      (It was roughly 2am here yesterday - as it is now. And with an empty house I have certain [ahem] liberties. What is your excuse?]

      Oh, and the gerbils are a temporary "charge" from my daughter's friend next door who went home for the summer. I also have two dogs, so a bathroom behind two closed doors seemed like the best answer.

      Do you have any other questions?

      By the way, I tried to have a conversation with those gerbils last night. This feels like that, except that they were a bit more articulate.

  13. So, Marv, did I pass my internship yet? You wanted page views, right?

    (Also, there are about 5 people who will take this seriously, but thank you. It's been a long, long night, and this was a fun distraction. I meant what I first said about not bringing this stuff to Deadspin ... whoever did that thankfully did not reappear. As for the rest, if you take MKM seriously, well good luck to you.)
