He Loves Him Some Him!

April 9, 2010

JaMal links to himself three times within a single column.  Pity poor James bravely enduring the merciless echo chamber of his own mind, where two-year-old columns endlessly ping and skirl in a deafening cacophony, from there to regularly erupt into the future reverse-Terminator-style.

Half-baked ruminations with the interminable half-life of spent nuclear fuel rods.  This is navel-gazing of supremely focused intensity, a dry run for the eventual mission to wrest open the puckered anus of his bellybutton and disappear whole-bodied into the umbilical remnant, there to collapse the shimmering barriers of space/time and emerge ahead to the past, in Mommy’s uterus, and from there a second chance… to invent Traveller himself… to witness Gary create the Wandering Slut Table in the DMG… to assassinate John Milius so that Conan can live forever in obscurity… so much to do…

But seriously, constantly linking to yourself is kinda gay.

    Every time I link to my own material I wonder how many more I can get away with before it is obvious self-fellation. Good to know three is where the line is.

    I’m just glad someone is here to let the rest of us know when its kinda gay and when its not. Good thing is isn’t just left for the reader to decide his or her own opinion all wily-nily.

    If your problem with James M. is that he thinks he’s more important than he really is, stop commenting at length on everything he says!

    Seriously, I like your criticisms of some people’s ill-thought-out plans, but not this sort of thing.

    And the ‘Ugly Chicks LOL’ posts are just puerile.

    PS The common thread in the above is constructive criticism is interesting (and compatible with corrosive humour), just insulting someone isn’t.

    James seems to be following the pattern of classical scholarship by referring to himself and other parts of his work. I’m not saying it is right or wrong, but that’s just how I see it.
