OK. The above image WAS NOT done by a professional artist(BUT IT DOES ASK WHY)-obviously-so THE EDITOR HAS MANGLED-NOT ONLY MY ARTICLE-BUT THE ENTIRE MAGAZINE. That would be a professional and over-paid editor!

VERIFICATION OF STUPIDITY:

The last paragraph, line 2 from top, of my good-not magnificent-article-contains, in print,two errors in one sentence. WTF? OK. Is "it is" too hard to get correct? Is a misplaced-or nonexistent comma a major challenge? Did the meaning of important last paragraph need to be changed to demonstrate absolutely incredible ineptitude.

Well, then. Did the printer throw up on the blues (understandable) or did you just happen to sign off on a pull-quote with smeared text? Bravo. No more articles for said magazine.

OK. NOW THIS ONE WAS FUNNY:

"...it is a time ...to take an honest look at our lives and asses..."

ABOVE DIRECT FROM THE LETTER FROM THE EDITOR.

I THINK YOUR AVERAGE THIRD GRADER WOULD CATCH THIS ONE. IT SHOULD READ "ASSESS."

Please tell me how the hell, a real-life third grader found pixel errors in the pictures?

SHIT. THANK YOU DEAR PHOTOGRAPHER FOR NOT SHOWING UP FOR THE INTERVIEW I WAS TO WRITE. MAY GOD JUST BLESS YOU AND YOUR FORTUNATELY TIMED HANGOVER.

The good news is I can take the issues I was responsible for and compare them to following issues-of course, it is now impossible to work there. I know there are a serious amount of errors in text, spelling, etc. in my entries, but then, this is not work. Damn. Also, how the hell did they add the word "fairytale" to a sub-header in an architecture/design article? Well, Hell.

I stand behind "my" issues, including the one on Yacobian Building, as it covered serious social issues, including: political graft, child labour, forced prostitution, gay issues and other more meaningful articles..it also featured serious actors...and soon to be censored, talk shows. Shit and double Shit.

I have been critical of fundamental religion and its effect on women and children. I have made jokes. Maybe I have overstepped certain lines (no). I would like to think that, while OK here, no one would be so insensitive to stir up the already overflowing shit, solely for shock value, in print....and cause what will, no doubt, be a reaction of the Muslims in London, to purely provocative bullshit designed only for shock value. Hey,it's Yellow Ragtime!

I do not think it is quite needed to talk about smoking dope after Iftar-unless one is exposing hypocrisy....at any rate...you seriously challenged shit-wads for brains-was it necessary to insult your own religion's practices, without a serious point? Just to shock. That's self-indulgent immaturity and irresponsible in print. Unless, you can be as good as "The Daily Show"--or "South Park"--but, you are not. By the way, please feed that same anorexic model-and not just cocaine. And, when "stretching" her legs, try not to make it look too fake. The rule is 33%, not, oh shit is that her neck or her crotch?

I am so pissed off. Also, does anyone in an international magazine NOT understand Italics? I know you do not have an AP Stylebook because I have it. Please use grammar check before publication.

OH, a deadline means a deadline, which would mean-even in Egypt-latest the 5th-Not the middle of the damned month. And, I have not been able to bring myself to read entire issue. It is just painful. I guess you can be monumentally stupid when you have OPEC money. This contradicts every genetic theory-cuz the late and the great OPEC Papa Bear was a brilliant and recognized author.

Maybe, I should have known. Pen names rule!!!!!


A subduded rant....I have a few hours alone, as dear mother-in-law is out shopping with dear brother-in-law's money for a new refrigerator. OK, I said plane tickets. I think between the rotting frig and the nonflushable toilet, I may just be on my last straw. But, I will be damned before I eat my mother-in-law's food-the kids can eat. But, just out of principle, I refuse to participate.

OK. It is offically IFTAR. Someday, when I feel less stupid, I will actually state the name of the magazine........sandy,,,,,,,,hell,was that a comma, ASSES THIS! [Editor Note: all my frickin errors LET STAND]

Pen names and stupid people

Pen names are gods gift to the colleague challenged in our world. Just because they create nonsensical dribble and adhere their only true possession to it doesn't mean everyone has to follow!! I'm proud that you see the crap that they are and have kept your name as YOUR name and not a name to throw around on random magazines that don't even take the time to hire a proper editor. Shit, I should be your editor, forward your copies to me!! hahahahah. I wouldn't eat the mother in laws food either - they could be slipping some tranquilizers to quell those Jinn infestations. Asses truly. heheh
