Politically Incorrect

In an attempt to postpone the inevitable eventuality of my being tarred and feathered by the collective mob of an enraged forum populous, I've performed some searches in an effort to determine if this is a topic that has been covered before. Since I haven't found any other mention through my admitte...

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090706.htm Tom Morgan - Don't get me wrong. I'm not scared to provoke Harlan, I just worry about the inevitable result. I'd love nothing more than to have a spirited debate on a subject about which we disagree, but I've seen the man in action, and I know enough to...

Re: I'm Kristian. With a K. (It's a whole thing.)

Thanks. I'll try to contribute something worthwhile to any discussions into which I insinuate myself, but please don't be slow to smack me around when it looks like I'm getting out of control. Historically, message forums have been a bit of an Achilles Heel for me, but I'm fairly confident that I ca...

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090706.htm I strongly fear the day when I take a stance in opposition to Harlan's, and set about posting my contrary opinion here in the dining pavilion. I've long since admired his sagacious acumen with regards to the time-honored Art of Putting-You-In-Your-Place...

I'm Kristian. With a K. (It's a whole thing.)

Hello, I'm Kristian. It's pronounced Christian - not Kristen, Kirsten, or Christina. It is only spelled with a K because my parents had a mischievous sense of humor, and apparently wanted me to fight a lot in elementary school. (Having a blatantly feminine middle name did nothing to improve the situ...

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090706.htm Harlan, I've posted the essay I mentioned the other day. I used your excerpt, but declined to rewrite it. I just couldn't bring myself to do it, for reasons I explain in the body of the essay. You can have a read here: http://coqdiddles.blogspot.com/200...

I hate the smell of stupid in the morning.

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090706.htm Harlan, I'd like to ask for your blessing concerning using a few of your well crafted words to illustrate a point in an upcoming essay. Specifically, I'd like to quote the opening paragraphs of Lonelyache. The point I will be attempting to make is that ...

Catching Up...

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090706.htm Regarding the growing hostilities: I wear flame-retardant underwear to the Internet these days. In the past, I enjoyed stirring up a good row here and there, but eventually learned that it's never productive. Minds don't change, attitudes don't improve,...

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090706.htm Ugh. The summer is upon us, and the last day of classes has seen the resurrection of the hideous kid-phoenixes rising from the ashes of a full school year's worth of burning at the stakes of knowledge. They're everywhere all of a sudden, hopped up on su...

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090706.htm Harlan, Thanks for the kind words. Sure, mostly you just agreed with me, but my ego just registers that as compliment. Your reply shed some much appreciated light on an otherwise dark and miserable day, so I thank you for it. That said, never encourage ...

Name: Kristian Bland Source: unca20090603.htm Brian Phillips, thanks for the heads-up regarding the suit against the so-called 'Catcher In The Rye' sequel. How something like this hasn't made everyone's heads explode is a mystery. I'm getting increasingly annoyed at all of the sequel and reboot man...

I know I'm a little rough on the state, but it's not like the place makes it difficult. Still, the whole place isn't all bad. Austin, for example, is a great city. If the rest of the s...

Anyway, I'm here now and thought I'd participate. I hate trying to come up with lists featuring my favorite movie...
