Unca Harlan's Art Deco Dining Pavilion

Discussion of the man and his work.

Welcome to the Art Deco Dining Pavilion! Here's the deal. This is Harlan's little breakfast nook at Webderland. When he's not here, we chat about him and his work. When he is, we act like we're guests in his home. That's about all there is to it. (link to More specific rules) Oh, and since the nook doesn't exactly hold a crowd (and to prevent the less frequent voices from being drowned out), please limit yourself to one post a day unless Harlan asks you a direct question. The Pavilion Annex is available if you're the logorrheic type. Also, we have archives of old posts. RSS Feed

Dear Roddenberry's Ghost

As the Ghost of Gene Roddenberry, are you still as much of a womanizing drunken pothead and cokehead as you were down here?

Dear whoever, nah, once you get up here you forget quickly about all the blather and bloviation down below...ESPECIALLY about anything you did for kopecks. Harlan is one of the crew now, and if we even bring up teevee shows, which we don't, it's just for a chuckle at ye chowderheads who made them into such a biggie in your lives.

Ever since he's been there, has Harlan been giving God an earache and a migraine, whining and moaning, bitching and pissing, about how Roddenberry rewrote his "City of the Edge of Forever" script?
Does God really give a damn?

Hip hole and hupmobile
You wish, pallie. Actually as I pen this little missive, old Harlie is sitting here right now with me and Dez Arnaz in the Great Beyond Bar, drinking his Shirley Temples without the cherry while the Cuban and I pound the rickies and do our usual Friday morning grab-assery. All is well up HERE - it's down there in the alley that things look a little faded. Roust yourselves, wombats! How long can you dumpster-dive, really?

Ellisonian Chilli
One pound of Gene Roddenberry, half a pound of William Shatner, followed by some Adrian Samish and Gary Groth. Mix well and cook. Some mighty fine eating!

Anybody got the recipe for Ellison's execellent chili?

That's EARY tale, not ESRY

I made a faux pas, which is French for screw up!

Name ten world famous SF writers who were shorter thsn Little Harlan! Can you DO it? Can it BE done? Given his overall stature, how big do you think his you know what was? Bigger than Milton Berle'sss??

Again hey, RN!!!

Are you the same RN as in RN: THE MEMOIRS OF RICHARD NIXON? Boy, was he a crook! Had a funny haircut too, although no one seemed to notice it at the time...

Hey, RN!

Moi? I asked you not to feed the troll(s), and you vanished (can't blame you), then "they" multiplied.

And okay, I did strew a few crumbs at "one" of them -- my bad! --
but the harm had already been done by that point. And we had already lost most of the "named" contributors well before then. One problem with the 90s-era interface on this joint is that users can (mis)behave as they did then, with even less supervision. At least the garish color scheme was changed, but that was probably the last upgrade we can expect.

"Now You Can Help...!"
Did you ever notice that when they say "Now You Can Help!", as in "Now you can help Harlan Ellison KICK internet piracy," it doesn't meen that you will be asked for your thoughts and ideas and considered an important member of the team. Rather, it means that you can have the dubious privilege of sending them as money as you can, that you will never get back, while keeping your mouth shut. And that's ALL it means!

Dear Perry Mason...

Is it true that Raymond Burr was as queer as a three dollar bill??

Stork -

Sorry, but you're wrong. There was no need for the Pavilion to fall apart once Harlan died. The Harlan Ellison Facebook page is filled with posts by people who are invariably thoughtful and polite. And all of them post comments under their own names, or at least names that are not obviously fictitious. Why can the Facebook page do what the Pavilion can't? It's because of the people. That's always what it comes down to. It's people who made the Pavilion an enriching and exciting experience, and its other who have made it dross. Once Harlan died, the trolls seemed to feel they could insult his memory and act like fools without his unforgiving eye judging them.

I have no shame about my own posts. Everything I've posted has been under my own name, and I think if anyone looks at my comments from the last 2 years, or the last 5 or 10 years for that matter, they will see that my posts have been for the most part substantive and civilized, carefully written and at times even witty. I take some measure of pride in that.

Mr. Nason........

If your mother and I hadn't smoked that mongoose poop that night, you might not be here today!!!!!😍😍😍😍😍😁😁😁😁😁

The Stork

Why so serious?
The Masked Bishop is spot-on. We all saw it coming soon after Harlan vacated the scene. He provided the juice, the unity; he was the linchpin. After that was pulled, ploop!, the first wheel fell off.

Then the remaining wheels fell off "the vehicle" in the ensuing two years after his death. Even some of your stuff, Roberto, comes off as twaddle.

hey nason---!!!
