Foetry Podcasts Poetry Snark

Last night, Alan of Foetry more or less "interviewed" me for a podcast. Ginger Pennebaker sat in for some of it. It should be up at the Foetry website in a week or two. I'll link to it from here.

Trochee's identity is known. The little man would be better off hanging up the mask for now, unless he wants to be exposed.

So fucking what, anon! You're the little man, apparently. Empty threats from someone who has ZERO power. Let me guess, "You've published in all the online journals run by all your friends." Am I right? Never done based on the merit of your work? Bingo. For an anonymous wanker, you're pretty easy to pin.

No, Alan! Actually, it's my wife who's in all of the online magazines that her friends edit. I don't want to ruin her reputation!!! You know the deal.

Agent Trochee is Ismael Archbold, a guy who writes bad poems that no one, not even online magazines, will publish.

Ismael who? That means nothing to me. Outing people on their blogs isn't cool.

And Poetry Snark is really John Lennon, a well known musician.

How could outing him ruin him? Ismael Ricardo Whateverthefuck Archbold hasn't accomplished anything to be ruined or tainted by the outing. Unless blowing his Snark cover is personally ruinous to him.... that could be true, this is one of the few outlets he has available for his, ahem, creative writing.

Isn't it telling how just about all of the anonymous Foetry and Snark people are either not poets at all, or just very fucking bad poets? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... !!!!!

Go figure.

Hey recent anon -- so which one are you -- the foetry anon or the snark anon?

Snark, Ginger, I have a feeling this podcast will be the wedgie these foets and snarkables really deserve.

Mwahahaha.

It continues to amaze me how these people who profess to despise this site keep returning again and again. And you think we're lame? Do tell.

Oh, *waaa* the snarks don't like being snarked? Zip your fly, dipshit. You guys haven't done anything good in like a year. Let's see you bring it! "It continues to amaze...sniffle sniffle...waaaaa!"

Oh I wasn't talking to you Jimmy--that was meant for the dude who "outed" Trochee.

BTW, if either one of us gave a shit, we would have simply deleted your comment.

You're right about one thing though: I've been a lazy bum, but it's only been a few months, really. This site hasn't even been around a year. I guess it must feel like a year though to such an ardent fan as yourself.

Snark on,

Well, it's been a year since anything here's been funny. If that pre-dates your existence, well, seems like you have some work to do. Sounds like your boy Trochee drinks a little too much and blabs shit around. Wonder what else came out in the middle of the night...

Quit fucking talking about it and do it.

Liar. At least one of my other comments, left in response to Ismael the troll's latest post as "Trochee," where I mentioned him by name, was quickly deleted...

You know he's been revealed. It's over for him. Unless he really wants to continue to be play the role of "Agent Trochee," hahahahaahhahhahahahhahahahah!

LOSER! You should spend more time working on your poetry, it's pretty fucking bad.

Blogger Snark said...

So why the fuck didn't I just delete the post you just wrote? Or delete all the comments sections for that matter? That would end this and all other subsequent conversations (hmmm, that's starting to sound like a good idea).

You have the ability to write here because I let you. You come back, again and again, to read a blog you profess to despise because you have no life.

Here's the difference between you and Trochee. You are going out of your way to read and attack a blog -- even outing one of its members -- because you are pathetic; we don't know who you are, don't read what you write, and have no interest in "outing" you or in fact knowing anything about you, and the only reason I am even writing this to you is because you came to our blog to cause what you thought would be trouble. And we let you.

And you are too stupid to even see the irony in the fact that you are attacking Trochee as writing stuff no one wants to read, when you yourself are in fact a part of his audience.

What a fucking loser you are.

Or the irony of someone posting as "anonymous" and complaining about the use of pseudonyms... Such a brave man this "anonymous" is.

At least this loser has done you one favor, snarky. Now people know that you are in fact not the same person as Trochee, Ginger, and Blood. Unless you yourself made all of this up...

Jim & Co.:

I had never thought to ask but have we met and I simply don't recall? [shrug] It's true, I have been known to drink alot but that is not how the whole Trochee thing got out. But I am not the sort to point fingers and this is not really a matter of any importance, so why fuss, right? But yes, the persona known as Agent Trochee is me. So what? What amuses me is how folks take things so personally all the time, as if it all really matters. The reason, as I recall it being discussed, for anonymity was for those reasons. It is near impossible to make fun, absurd or, at times, mean-spirited remarks for the sake of humour (&, to not cut corners, provocation) without folks getting totally bent out of shape and confusing the show for the person. Oh but there is little satisfaction from a theatre of the internet and I will be the first to admit that I came to be bored with the whole thing (& busy besides) and spent more time working on other projects. So, no one has taken anything from me or done me any real harm - as ever, as anyone who knows me well enough, I am indifferent.

It is a fool that takes another fool seriously. So, I thank you & the rest for this bubbly affair, for making fools of us all and so this Akla-Seltzer of a moment, a taste of medicine if you will, is just what I need rid me of such gas.

I say mean things about people *every* *fucking* day, coward. And you really do need a new author photo. Do all anymous losers spell humor with a "u"? And what the hell is "careering"? And why weren't you ever funny, troch-shit?

i say mean things all the time too. i need a new author photo like we need a civil war. no, not all anonymous losers spell humor with a "u", just the ones with a little bit of English training. "Careering"? Look it up. And I never was supposed to be funny though some folks seem to think I was but I could never quite see why. Anything else your sourness want to know?

Blogger Behrle, Prince of Trolls said...

You look like a bedwetting freak. I like how you're not responsible for the dopey things you wrote because it was a persona. Yeah, I stand behind all the shit my persona sprays, dilweed. I can only hope all the snarks are as cool as you. Your "careering" is about to take a nosedive, dupe.

xxxjimmy

PS: "Wasn't funny" isn't the same as "Wasn't supposed to be funny". Poetry is dying for a funny site that gives shit and takes credit for it. Too bad you guys don't got the spines to stand behind your work and stand up for yourselves. Pathetic.

I want to know why he is still reading this daily and, as his multiple posts now indicate, repeatedly each day.

I guess it must be because y'all's writing is so bad and not funny, right. I know that's why I frequent a blog, because I think it sucks and is boring.

Actually Ismael, I think we really DO need a civil war. How else rid ourselves of Republican scum?

And these guys really are pathetic, it's true. Why are they even reading this? I think they jerk off to your posts...

I read lots of shit I think isn't funny--so I can make fun of it. Quit your sobbing, what a little wuss.

And doesn't trochee look like a virgin?

PS: I'm looking forward to smoking the snark, too. What a little crybaby.

Little trochee is quoting Elizabeth Bishop in little e-mails to me. Is he mentally handicapped or something. I don't give a shit about getting e-mails from him. He is a urine-soaked bed-wetting coward who can't write poems.

My question for Ismael is, if Trochee is just a "persona," why does your Live Journal (under your real name) contain many of the same sentiments and employ the same style, more or less, as your Trochee posts? The same goes for your often caustic and snarky comments in the Choriamb community. Don't blow off your actions on this blog as merely the ravings of a "persona," that's fucking weak.

Hey anonymous, the real question is: if you think he sucks so bad, why do you read his blog?

These people are real pieces of work.

dear Anonymous,

my posts on my LJ often do not discuss poetry and when they do, they are copied out remarks from an article or essay or links to a poet/poem.

as for my "often caustic & snarky comments" at Choriamb, I would hardly consider my comments caustic or snarky though i am forceful, direct and, at times, argumentative, but with a number of folks agreeing with me, well, it seems little cause for alarm. if it were, i imagine i would have been banned.

as i have said previously, i take responsibility for most perceived & actual ill i may have caused. to provide an analogy - if this had been a variety or skit show like SNL, it would all be written off as comedy, good or bad, whatever but since there is conception of a theatre for the internet, given the high degree of no-imagination & hyper-sensitivity amongst a cross-section of readers (here & elsewhere), it falls on me to bear the fullness of said persona. so be it. and what now, Anonymous, would you have of me?

yes, the style of some of my LJ entries and the Trochee posts are similar. chalk that up to a lack of effort, illness, intoxication or whatever suits you; doesn't matter. if one is incapable of seeing the thickness of irony of my Trochee remarks and my actual person, it is because you haven't (a) the foggiest notion of who i am &/or (b) you are dense thicket of trained subjectivity.
