Default Slick Jimmy Is Back...


Um, yeah, sorry, folks.

I've been gone for the past few months. I've been working a lot, and, well, tired as a cliche. My writing energy has been fairly sapped in the last few or ten fortnights, so I'm not sure even what to post. I hope you all have been well. I still don't have much time, but I will try to drop in now and again to get my toes wet. And so there you have it, my fine inimitable Instigators of the Ink. Write Hard.

Slick Jimmy Has Left The Building...

The man is back! Good to see you, SJ. Now, excuses aside, don't be such a stranger. Just pop in when you can, even if only to say, Yo.

Ah, bro! Feel free to drop in anytime, even if just to liven up the forum and up the gregariousness level--Lord knows we're a somber bunch around here

Well, SJ being SJ would not just say ‘Yo’ it would be longer, or have I got a bad memory again?

Ah, yes. You are absolutely correct, but I could never write anything with the same panache as SJ!

His work is great fun to read... but his posts are great too... a major part of his claim to fame here! Welcome back, Slick_Jimmy!

Yep. Slick Jimmy is a legend in his own mind. I mean time.

*Q wanders in, lights a candle, and turns down the lights*

I feel a prediction coming on. There will be much thread-hijacking and long, rambling posts to no purpose. Words will jumble, coalesce, and form themselves into passages of wit and jive-ass beatnik prosody. A figure is coming into view. I see a hip gangster hat, something long, hard, shining ... well, holy crap, it's Slick Jimmy back from the dead!

Q,

You kill me! Bang-Bang!!! I'm pushin' up daisies... Now I gotta' live up to all this grandiose hyperbole. (God, I love spell check and google. Where was I...) Am I really back from the dead? Like Jesus? The Second Coming of the Literary Messiah? This is entirely too much pressure. I might pull another Salman Rushdie, and slink back to my wickiup hermitage deep in the impenetrable woods. Smoke a little paoti, and go a vision quest, with a cute cute lil' squaw wiggling on my lap in the balmy sweat lodge. Dig?

Where was I going with this? Oh yes... Revelations from on high. Literally. Nostradamus can go suck roc eggs. He ain't got nothin' on me, and I ain't afraid a no 2012. The Aztecs, Olmecs, and Mayans were a bunch of blood soaked pussies on a chocolate binge. Nambie-pambies couldn't even figure out metallurgy! (I keep going on like this somebody from La Rasa is gonna' track me and sacrifice me to Quetzalcoatl.) Roland Emerick and his bloody, ecological, end-of-days, disaster malarkey. The man is a one trick pony, just like that bozo Michael Bay. All flash and no substance! Doesn't matter if there is a plot hole you could drive an aircraft carrier through, just put in an explosion, a car chase, or a strip club scene and nobody will notice. Unless that is, they have two brain cells and a synapse to rub together, then watch out! Bad review! And still the Hollywood schmuck bastards make more money than God, and all His feathery angels, queued up in a chorus line, clad only in g-stings and pasties!

Heaven Gone Vegas When Hell Invades!!!

That's Emerick and Bay's new joint venture, and the plebs'll eat it up like sweet potato pie. Damn those soulless bastards!

I await Inglourious Basterds to cleanse my embittered palate of all the vomitous summer blockbuster tripe! All hail Tarantino!!!!!

What was I on about again?

Hmmmm? Anywho...

Like I was saying, I'll never be able to live up to the expectant hype you're building here, Q.

But I shall sally forth as best I can to slay the ephemeral dragons you cast to the winds to beset me.

Heh...

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. Shut up.

Fine. I'm rusty. What do you want from me? A Homeric Epic Ode? Demanding Wench! I'm leaving!...to go to the loo. Excuse me.

Jimmy Out.
