I Have Saved TW new [re: K]  

You guys! I am so proud!

My opinion-free reporting of a minor news item has devolved into a vintage Dogz thread with THIRTY posts! Doesn't it totally feel like 2002 all over again?

Anyway, yeah, what were we talking about? Art film? Well, the easiest and thus most correct way to determine whether something is art or not is to think about where you saw it:

-- Was it hanging on the wall of a gallery? Then it was ART
-- Was it spraypainted on the outside wall of the gallery? Then it was NOT ART
-- Did I see that movie at Angelika/IFC/Film Forum/(insert the name of local cinema with poor projection and uncomfortable seating here)? ART!
-- Did I see that movie at a Loews/AMC multiplex? NOT ART

So there you have it - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is not art. If you want to expand your personal definition of art to include such qualities as "truth" and "beauty" and "heartbreaking honesty about human relationships" then you could probably squeeze it in, but that's on your head, bub.

And now, because old habits don't die, I just have to ask:

In reply to:

Your post just confirms you had no idea what Dogz was about and still haven't!!!


OK, no, I won't ask, because obviously there's no way you'd ever just come out and *say* what Dogz was "about," no, that'd be too easy.

So a simpler question: was there ever anyone at TW who you feel DID get what Dogz was about?

I don't walk it like I talk it cause I run it

OK, Ziggfried. I retract my previous retraction of the post about wanking and speak my mind once again.

What I always saw in the "dogz affair" was bullying. It has the classic hallmarks; people see someone they don't understand and they respond with aggression. As in:

In reply to:


You want to know what a tragic joke is? (...) middle-aged weirdo (...) I figure you're either an emotionally-stunted retard


When one sees this going on it is one's duty to speak up. Hence I make this fight my business:
1. I never saw dogz make a racist comment -- be that as it may; if he did, then you have no right to criticize that before you do the same to Strawman or Monkeyboy.
2. What you misconstrued as "flooding the boards" could also be seen as being chatty and friendly.
3. Dogz has a personal punctuation style (and never has an impersonation been as bad as yours, ziggfried) and people get all crazy about it. Why not turn against bowiefanpeter, then?? He even stopped using those commas but people just won't leave it alone.
4. As for the

In reply to:

pissing off and/or driving away most of the intelligent members of this site


I know there were one or two jerks who said they left because of dogz. But you might want to remember that David Bowie stopped making music in 2004. And perhaps compare the decline in members on this board with other Bowie sites.

It's SAILER, idiot!

Wouldn't you love to see my PM inbox dear

I'd say hehind the scenes about 75% of the forum knew what Dogz was about. The other 25% were too busy shoving their heads up their asses

You made Dogz what he was.

Happy Days Matthew



I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.

I had managed to forget how much of a tosser dogz was, but this thread brought it again to crystal clarity.

Re: What is this thread about anyway? new [re: Emil]  

Emil, If you perceived the "dogz affair" to be bullying, then you either aren't aware of, or are willfully ignoring, the period of time when Dogz went out of his way to basically insult and antagonise as many people on this site as he could - before later on trying to cosy up to people and make out that he was the victim. Since you seem to be an intelligent person, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you missed this thread. If you're going to flame threads with insults, you can't turn around and claim you're being picked on.

And I always felt that my "impersonation" (?) was pretty close to my own personality (for better or worse). If that's "bad," well...

Digging up old threads from 2006 proves just how sad you stil are and how far the rest of the forum has moved on.

You didn't win one argument with Dogz and never will because you still don't unbderstand Dogz. Dogz was the nicest person on here along with a few others...Tristan...Strawman and a few of the alters created by others

You judge a person by what's written on an internet message board who lives the other side of the world from you!!!

I've met members in person off this forum and the most intelligent member I met was Strawman. We had a solid hour of serious laughs provided by you guys.

I respect Matthew (Marquis) very highly along with Auntie Prism

Ziggfried I hold no respect for you as the only person who's funny in your world is you!!! [sad]

You couldn't impersonate your way out of a paper bag dear.

Now please...go get a life it's almost 2011.

I dunno if you've noticed, but the rest of the forum hasn't actually done a hell of a lot of moving since 2006.

And if we're talking about "sad" behaviour...A grown-up man (?) playing dress-up with his dog and posting pictures of it (and warbling about "untarnished love") goes well beyond "sad" and into the realm of "disturbing."

How do I go about unbderstanding Dogz? I don't think I've ever unbderstood anything, is there a trick to it?

You live the other side of the world? Are you a socialite gadfly or something?

Only an hour? Pfft.

How about a plastic bag then? Should I set my sights lower?

You show a fine unbderstanding of chronology!

Seriously though, for however much of a pain in the arse Dogz was back in the day, isnít pretending heís back here providing the TW message boards with the most activity it's seen in ages?

Yes indeed, the fact that you pointed out one spelling error to me wipes out all the good times we had in the past, like the time you threathened to SUE THIS WEBSITE and resultingly have it taken down unless I complied with your demand of removing a post you found insulting. Oh yes, those were the good days when we were such great friends.

Looking at my PM indox of the time since I got moderator status, the contents fall neatly into three categories: You making threats to me, other posters voicing their complaints about you to me in private (presumably to avoid getting a flood of insults from you if posted publicly) and then the more pleasant stuff of talking about Gary Numan with ziggfried. You really are such an exceedingly nice guy whose niceness is far too much for me to handle.
