Hi Omar. Thanks for the correction about the SSCCC and CyBear Copy Center. I appreciate it. --J. Loceff
Thanks, Omar - fixed.
Also " counsel" should be changed to "the council"
The appropriate name of the SSCCC is the *Student Senate for California Community Colleges and the ASP membership does not grant access to the CyBear Copy Center, it merely provides a discount to services provided there.
There is nothing inferior about fanfiction, Rob. I'm a published author and I actually prefer writing fanfiction over writing my own stuff. Know what else? My best piece of work so far is fanfic.
Fanfiction isn't just a stepping stone for growing artists--it's a worthy final destination for the mature writer.
P.S. Dante, Virgil and Milton all wrote fanfic.
What?!! that sounds hard to believe!
Despicable. Darius Anderson is trying to shut down the first amendment freedom of expression and opinion in Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Darius Anderson is a plotting, manipulative man with a hard on for power and money, the most dangerous type of man is one who lays in wait for his unsuspecting prey, ready to pounce...if that doesn't work, then he plays the "pay to play" game while he "Rapes and Pillages' our City of Sonoma, our people and our land. The only way to stop a man like this is for the truth about him to be known, that's why he is buying up the media, in a futile attempt to hide all his failings, fines and downright theft of public employee pension plans in numerous cities across America which is only the beginning of his evils. The other truth is that he is so money hungry that he thinks he can get gambling into the City of Sonoma under the guise of a large hotel near our Plaza while he reaches into his pockets, realizes there is nothing there, so he begs for money as a lobbyist for some "great political cause" so he can use money that belongs to other people while practicing his speeches as a confidence man...build another Indian Casino, then steal from the Indians...a truly bad man.
Manipulative and plotting are two good words for Darius Anderson... trying to shut down the first amendment expression of opinion and speech in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Obviously, he has a lot to hide while he is "Raping and Pillaging" our newspapers, our land, our City of Sonoma and our people.
A despicable human being with a hard on for power and money is the most dangerous type of man.
Speculation in my opinion is he may also be eyeing the KSVY 93.1FM radio and SonomaSunTV station across from the Index Tribune known to be struggling. Current owner Bill Hammett has creditor court cases pending and some interesting real estate transactions recorded this first quarter as well. Darius already bought up the real estate Bank of Marin building 134 W Napa and the parcel behind it all located right beside the Sonoma Sun media empire. Many think he is planning on using the parcels as annex hotel buildings for his Chateau Sonoma.
Also rumored are the 10 Maple Street LLC Jeffrey Freiberg buildings said to be for sale behing the Lynch buildings. He may "go big" on this hotel some say could someday include a casino.
Bibi, it doesn't seem as though Rachel is complaining about "Twilight," but about a publishing world -- and a broader culture -- that encourages the creation and consumption of derivative works.
It's wonderful that "Twilight" has inspired so many people to want to write, but it would be even more wonderful if it inspired them to come up with their own characters, situations and themes. Fan-fiction can be a great place for aspiring writers to begin, but it ought to be just that -- not something that ought to be appearing in hardcover at Barnes & Noble.
Sigh, Rachel, love, you need to take a chill pill and develop an imagination. You come across as an elderly spinster in dire need of some romance and adventure in your life!!
If Twilight is such a horrible work of fiction, it would not have inspired millions of fans (young and old), it would not have lead to five movie juggernauts (btw, it is a four-part series - not three), it would not have inspired youngsters to start reading and people to write books and fanfiction. Frankly, any work of fiction that can achieve all that surely cannot be all bad.
Some of us enjoyed the books inspired by Twilight fanfics (or at least some of them).
So Shriek, let's get this straight: the right thing, the ETHICAL thing to do when one is the direct descendant of a world-class huckster and thief of souls, is not to speak out, but to shut up about it. Nobody cares about the thousands of people still enmeshed in the cult Jamie's great-grandfather founded, or the families they've disconnected from, or the internal gulag system the cult runs.
Re: "I can't imagine how his girlfriend tolerates his madness", etc. You sound just darling, and not even a little bit jealous.
Comes across like a self-aggrandizing, pompous loudmouth. What an idiot. He's a lot like El Ron in that way. The Fatman built his cult through pure aggrandizement, and Jamie the Troll is trying to build his own following on the back of Scientology and the Fatman. Fortunately, most people don't give a rats ass about Scientology anymore, so Jamie will have to eventually begin attempting to cultivate some sense of talent and originality, both of which he's lacked for years.
I can't imagine how his girlfriend tolerates his madness. Jamie, please put a dirty sock in it and save the world from the sickness of your voice which sounds like a screaming pig.
Is there a point in here somewhere?
so sad, so sad.
You have learned well, Grasshopper.
