Do what you please.  

Anyone who wants this one can have it.  I'm out of the biz. Doktor Plague has demonstrated to my satisfaction that it's stupid, and that I look like a fucking clown.

http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=25924.msg910852#new

I'm done with the Pulp thing, and the Doktor thing.  

Taking a break for a while.  See you all around.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I think he was comparing you to doctor robotnik, the iconic viallian of sonic the hedgehog. That's who that picture is. I'm sure it wasn't a jibe at you.

May you find your worth in the waking world.

EDIT:

Yeah, we talked, it's cool.

Is the old pulp stuff worth reading?

*Got some third hand Doc Savage books 15 years ago and still hasn't read them.

Some is, and some I'd expect would be trash similar to the trashy paperbacks made now. Bear in mind that Edgar Rice Burroughs is a pulp author, and his still gets republished.

Reading Cram's post, I'm wondering if there's more that could be done with this Pulp thing. The basic idea, I think, is to try and get people to capture the spirit of the Pulp medium. I'm not talking about the time period when Pulp was around, but Pulp itself.

Maybe there's a way we can try and introduce that drama and action into normal life. Try and blur the line between fact and fiction.

Any ideas?
