Excuse me, what's special about making a thread which links to the forum?Originally Posted by *o*
I think *o* is having a nervous breakdown.
Ah, but hasn't the book converted all of us to a permanent nervous breakdown?Originally Posted by fatwoul

Why'd you change it?Originally Posted by fatwoul
And where'd *o*'s signature go?
And I found a thread (old one, from 2004) by *o* where he links to this thread. Wonder what he's cooking? Here's the thread: A nice look into the 20 th century.
"Call me Greg"
I got two words for ya
darn. haand is hand. but not echoed. at least not acoustically
haand is the danish for hand
here's some leonard cohen translated into norweigan
sorry bout the line breaks... if you go to the page and scoll up.. it talks about "where he hung" odinreference etc.
conspiracy theoriesgrandstaircase blah.
(not mine, from http://home.comcast.net/~g_m/LC-ng-90-95/1249.htm)
ohh.. and note the vikingish icon of *o*
Vi laa ved hans side. We lay by his side.
Vi lokket bekjennelsen frem. We lured the confession out.
Vaar haand paa hans oeyne, Our hand on his eyes,
vaare fingre paa duggen fra dem. our fingers on the dew from them.
Hvis ditt liv er et loevblad If your life is a leaf
som hoesten vil kvitte seg med that the fall wants to rid itself of,
skal vaar kjaerlighet farge deg shall our love color you
groenn som en gren paa et tre. green like the branch on a tree.
I've always wanted to know what a Norweigan Leonard Cohen would sound like, so thanks. For an encore, could you translate some Suzanne Vega into Finnish?
Surely not. It's Klaus the Konkistador!Originally Posted by w.teeth
I've gone through purges of my posts in the past, to keep the numbers down. I delete all the arguments, and occasionally some of the stuff that really didn't relate to anything, but I have never deleted a post someone actually seemed interested in, and certainly never deleted a HoL-related post.
Since I am adopting a stance of superiority and disdain, in memory of *o*, I haven't bothered to look at what has been deleted, but if he has deleted anything of any real value (admittedly only about 10% of his posts), then that would be a great shame, and rather selfish on his part.
However, I don't imagine *o* sees it that way. Talking about it is fairly pointless because if *o* wasn't rigidly trapped by his own view of things, and if he hadn't made up his mind before the debate on something is even opened, he simply wouldn't be the *o* we all know. He also claims that we don't know him, of course, which seems to stand as the ultimate self contradiction; a fault *o* has recently strived to unmask in others.
*o*, I can just about understand your deleting posts in this forum (even though I wish you wouldn't) but on the main forum? You're decimating a lot of worthwhile topics. Don't do it you fool!
I have a theory - he's under indictment for murder, and he's trying to erase all evidence that might support the lead detective's notion that *o* is quick to anger and given to irrational outbursts.
Or...maybe not...I don't know
It's like a Dan Brown novel. I can only imagine a bunch of computer nerds gathered around a monitor, watching *o*'s posts disappear one by one.
Cheesy dialogue for the scene:
O'Brian: "It's beginning."
Durst: "My god..."
O'Brian: "At this rate, we'll have total post eradication within...(checks watch)...72 hours."
Miss Paltran: "I never thought he'd do it. I know him...I...I thought I knew him."
Durst: (Turning away from the screen, grimly) "We all thought we knew him. We all--"
O'Brian: "--Not to interrupt, but...look!"
"Call me Greg"
Keep going! I want to know what happens...Originally Posted by modiFIed
*o* finds the "rose line" and then Jesus Christ has a son. The end.
Moments before the wind.
You mean he's axlrose?Originally Posted by modiFIed
And who's Paltran, Durst and Brian?
Based on what I have heard, axl has other things to worry about.Originally Posted by sutrix
And he always will, poor bastard.
"Call me Greg"
I can't believe you went through the trouble of updating all those links, *o*!
You sad, sad bastard.
Edit: Are still going through, in fact...

It seems there are plenty of important post of his that have dissapeared. It is sad and a loss. A few that I actually wanted to refer to the other day in this, my own most intense exploration of the I feel sorry.
However, the same happened to works of Saphos and Plato. And what's more important than the text is how the text affected us. Our reactions are still there though our friend (paranoid of our feelings of him that he is) seems to be eating himself alive.
"but if he stays inside himself, if he is contained within his nature as he is participant in the larger force, he will be able to listen and his hearing through himself will give him secrets objects share."

Except now with THIS board, users delete a post and it is not really deleted You guys dont see them, but I do.
I am god here.
Well, here is what I see when browsing the forum, if there were moderators, they would see this too:Originally Posted by Ellimist
And this is what I see and the options I have when I click "Manage"

Ha. That's very cool. May I post that link yet?
I like how we are muddying up *o*'s silly thread (more). This is fun.
Heh, ^^^that up there^^^ makes me look like a right inconsiderate bastard. Ellimist's agonizing with his conscience over whether to put up f_s's pdf, his conscience gets the better of him and he deletes it, then I wade in with my size nines and stick it up without so much as a by-your-leave.
At the time, I didn't know you'd done that, honest!
Hmm. I see what you're saying. All we can do is wait for the *o* Renaissance when surely his greatest works will once again see the light of day. The Turks (cyber-terrorists) will sack Byzantium (the HoL servers) and scholars of *o*'s works will be sent to the corners of the earth, taking with them the precious manuscripts (bits of code) that remain the sole record of this philosopher-king's genius. Then it will take a Cosimo de' Medici (naught?) to recover the artefacts and set the greatest minds of a generation to work interpreting and publishing them.Originally Posted by ManiKatt
Until that day, all we have are memories.
unfortunately i am too much a young'n to remember this *o*. Were his posts insightful and thought provoking?
Do you have any special writing rituals?
I sit very quietly and wait for my gorillas.
