More job openings on this one than might otherwise be expected. Dibs on the tranny.

Shockingly, I've been summoned back. I did have my place of choices to go, and of course I chose here: because, reasons.

Good smack?

Lighten up, Francis. If they are blue again already, I would be as surprised as anyone--which is to say, not at all--and twice as sympathetic as the most of them, but as you know... I'm in no position to be giving advice. Least of all: to you.

Here's what I can tell you: after she beat me bodily about the head and shoulders 8 or 9 times, I finally ended up hitting her back once or twice in self-defense. I don't actually know how many blows actually landed. I just know that I found myself thinking, "does this deserve a third hit?" And then I didn't do it anymore--because obviously nobody deserve to be hit. Nobody deserved anything like that. Least of all, ME. And, neither did she. This is Key. Because, it's not that I don't like violence, or, that I can't control myself--guffaw--that has caused me to choose pacifism is my primary combat discipline: I chose it because it is THE BEST.

(Thanks for the Alpha code, Gandhi. You're a star! Now, take off, Hoser: I'm going to show you what a Hungarian can do with what an Indian couldn't make heads nor tails of. Leaving a spirit nonplussed is pretty crucial when engaging this kind of diplomacy, not going to lie. Avoid Foreign Entanglements, Kids.)

That I would one day end up being alone with no teammates facing a vastly superior force in both numbers & technology, as well as in pure vitriol, did not occur to my 12-year-old mind. I just saw that stupid kid running away crying and I didn't like the way It made me feel, so... I just resolved never to do that again. It was easy. Maybe it was because of the oxygen? No I don't think so. I think it's because I got a good heart.

Or, I'm a robot sent back from the future to right wrongs according to an exacting timetable. I'll be fucked if I know. I'll tell you what, that's a more likely idea than smack. Jesus, does anybody still call it that? I don't know, I didn't hang around doper addicts even when I was still allowed to have human friends. And here you are. I'll give you credit: you're using a five letter word. Here's another: relax. It's what one can do after flexing. But it's what one should do regardless. Especially you. Tell you what, go on back to the emoticons if you like. Get yourself a sippy cup and a blanket too, whatever it takes to get a toddler like you to stop having a tantrum, I'm on board. You think you're tired of this? I got you beat, 6 ways from Sunday. Bored now. However, opinions vary; and I am nothing these days, if not attentive to the minority view.

Trust me: that's you people. You people reading this I mean. You think anybody else is? Shit no, they fall asleep. Most them are all sleepwalking sheep that count themselves, but nevertheless... "Oh noes. A Wall of Text. I better fit in, and do what everybody else does. Because that's safe enough, that's good enough, and gosh darn it, I need people to like me."

Also, none of you are supposed to read this. Just let Alexa handle it. What are you... one of them, Uppity Literates? With a penchant for ad hominem, I gather.

Well, sweet: this is my area. And also, added to the list of latest rumors about Grapefruit: that I've been "abusive." Presumably, by refusing to share my heroin, right? We'll see what comes up when the latest Records trace comes back from "subspace." Or whatever they call it. I don't care. This isn't my area. Maybe that's the new job for this dead guy? I don't usually speculate on that kind of thing. And yet, here I am... speculating. And why not? Someone else started it! And since I can finish it, I get to play Primacy--at least until Greatfruit figures out what Mendelssohn is for. Honestly: I wouldn't hold your breath. Not at all.

Meanwhile, back to Fantasyland: I, of course, made a big show of pretending that it was oh-so-difficult to hold back my violent impulses. As if continuing to hit somebody over and over and over--as had been done to me by the never-mentioned person on several occasions, causing legitimate physical distress and emotional harm and intellectual zugzwang--was something that was difficult for me to recognize as a foul and abominable impulse, and as if purging those with a snap of my fingers was something that I hadn't quite Mastered yet.

So... was there a "good smack" in there? Is that story even have any kind of ring of truth to it? I don't know, I'm thinking it over. Obviously, I'm not talking about You-Know-Who, and obviously I'm not talking about heroin, and obviously this is just a euphemism, and analogy, and a metaphor.

Or maybe not. Who can say? Well, not you, that's for sure. Taste the rainbow. What does that even mean? Well, I know this much: I don't have to worry about it. At. All. And as you well know, this is not meant to imply that you need to worry about anything. Or that this is any kind of threat. Or, any kind of attempt to extort any kind of desired result from you.

This is exciting, isn't it? For you. For me--just another fucking command demand performance. As it would seem that my delusions include the belief that people wish for me to do things that I would rather not.

Okay, sure. It's a delusion. I'll let that stand for now. Why not? At this point... what difference does it make? It makes none to me. But for you, oh boy. A two word rhetorical question... and, look... a treasure goblin, spitting out coins. I bet you'd like to run after that. Yes, I do.

Sorry, Champ. Embargoed. *cue_sad_trombone.wav*

I'll be honest: I have no way of knowing. This suits me down to the ground. I helped someone kick heroin once. Once. What a pain in the ass! Someone should really figure out a way to cure addiction.

That The Guild hasn't yet patented, that is. Thankfully this is not my area. I'll be moving along. (See? I'm playing ball. Hooray.)

* Ahem. *

Keep it up, Doc. I am prepared, after all. This was The Plan, right? Yeah, well, everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face. And I'll be honest... I've never punched anybody in the face. I really don't think so. However, I have been punched in the face... well, less often than a lot of people might think I deserve, but way more often than a lot of people ever have. Sorry, I have to be vague here. Because of the, you know--drugs, and the sex with (PROTECTED).

IN THE PAST, I HAVE INSTRUCTED YOU TO STAND DOWN. CONSIDER YOURSELF INSTRUCTED AGAIN. THIS IS NOT A THREAT, NOR IS IT MEANT TO BE. NO ATTEMPT TO EXTORT OR TO COMPEL COMPLIANCES INTENDED OR SHOULD BE INTERPRETED AS SUCH. JUST... stand down, mang.

I say this because I am legitimately embarrassed for you. And that's on record. Also, I was given a Hot'N'Fresh mandate last night: I'm supposed to stand up and put things down, or something. I'll be honest, I kind of forgot the details at the time. I knew they would be supplied later when the time came.

Please don't make me have a new mandate. You wouldn't like me when I have a new mandate. You don't like me now. You didn't like me then. When did you like me? Nobody gi-gi-gi-gi-gives a fuck! You said it. We all heard it.

Just those two words. And the door opens. Honestly, at some point... you're going to wish it was just a lich. However, that's not my problem, or my area, or anything to do with what I would prefer to talk about. Which as you well know, is Flat Earth.

And heroin. Lots and lots of heroin. Dude, what are you: mental? Well, whatever, just pretend I didn't say anything. Pretend I felt like being nice. Because I did. And now... It is quite simply... beyond my control. See you at the links later, cheers! (Stop flaming me. PERIOD. STOP. Go back to #subGenius, Doc. While you still can.)

* Polite cough. *

So, as I was saying. There's a matter here I'd like to discuss: Jack Palladino. Obviously, I never knew the guy. BUT THERE'S A COUPLE PEOPLE I'D LIKE TO ASK ABOUT HIM. Sure and boy howdy! Oh, wait... oh, bother.

QuoteJack Palladino, the flamboyant private investigator whose clients ranged from presidents and corporate whistleblowers to scandal-plagued celebrities, Hollywood moguls and sometimes suspected drug traffickers, died Monday. He was 76.

This doesn't look like any kind of resemblance to me. Let's look deeper. Oh, but wait: embargoed. Now, that is awkward. What am I supposed to do after the 30-day waiting period expires? Oh, wait that's right: You don't know anything about a thirty-day waiting period.

I'm certainly not going to tell you. I'm stuck in Customs. Besides... I'm being heavily encouraged to not conversate with... certain beings, such as yourself.

I know, right? Sounds stupid, right? And yet, who am I to argue? I'm tired anyway. * Yawn * I'll take a nap instead.

After I do the thing that I'm supposed to do. Summoned, remember. Believe me, I'd rather not. Still--duty calls.

Wow, that's quite a list. And, just think: none of it is my area. Thank God. Who was it who said that I "crave attention?" Hey, guess what! WRONG. Now, please: hold your applause. Not that I hate applause, but most of you are going to need both hands for clutching at your pearls.

For I am unbowed: behold!

Famed private investigator Jack Palladino dies after being attacked outside his San Francisco home.

Wow. Who could have seen that coming? I'll be honest: I forgot all about this guy. And yet, here I am. That's weird, huh? Weirder still: you're already convinced that it's "drugs" faster than W was convinced it was bin Laden. Fancy that. Maybe it's Maybelline, did you ever think of that? It's not, but you're still thinking of it. Ha! Ha! Good makeup?

QuoteJack Palladino, the flamboyant private investigator whose clients ranged from presidents and corporate whistleblowers to scandal-plagued celebrities, Hollywood moguls and sometimes suspected drug traffickers, died Monday. He was 76.

Oh, right. I already mentioned that. So I guess any of you actually reading this, could have seen this coming. Let's keep going--this is getting somewhere, I promise.

And it won't be an opium den. Hey, do any of you ever remember Fletch? How about Flynn? Nah, with this crowd: non-dair challenge reason. (That's code, Kids.)

QuotePalladino suffered a devastating brain injury Thursday after a pair of would-be robbers tried to grab his camera outside his home in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. He held on to the camera but fell and struck his head, and the photos he took before his attackers fled were used by police to track down two suspects. They were charged with assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes.

Wow. How convenient. Now I don't mind telling you, it's a real serious breach of protocol, but I'm about to tell you: the dude is pissed. It would be a much more serious breach if I were to tell you why, and I have no interest in doing that. So, I won't, and no other reason. I mean, I could... but why beat the wookie? I'll probably need him to be able to help parallel park later. And, funny thing about wookies: they never forget being beaten. Something to consider for your next time out, maybe. Just a thought. I'm still allowed to contribute those. I'm Special.

I have a lot of autonomy these days. It's pretty ridiculous, I'm not going to lie. President Biden seems to be a fan! Or something. I don't know, whatever. Maybe I'm the only person on the continent with an IQ higher than 175 who did not vote for Trump? I have no idea, actually. None at all.

This suits me down to the ground. Who is the guy who said that I like to go around bragging that I know everything? Well, number one: I talked to Everything the other day, and she said, that guy is a major dweeb. (Don't ask who. A little respect, people. I do, of course respect your curiosity. Cram it.) Number two... I've never said that I know everything, or if I I have, it was meant ironically. Number three... I really don't like being the only one in the room that can explain things to everybody else. I'm pretty lazy. I'm not going to lie. Because it's too much work to remember lies. I get no pleasure from it. Also, yeah tell him the truth is good sure... but more importantly: it's easier. For me.

Quote"He would have loved knowing that," his wife, Sandra Sutherland, told The Associated Press on Monday. She added that she had told her husband while he lay unconscious in the hospital: "Guess what, Jack, they got the bastards, and it was all your doing."

A little known fact about Jackstar: I went on a date with a woman named Sandra once. Once. It was an awkward date, I'm not going to lie. If I had ever gotten the chance to tell her why there was only going to be one date, she would have been flabbergasted, because--that's how she thought it was going to be too. I guess. I think. This was 2 decades ago, so, whatever.

I wonder if I had the psychokinetic shielding then? If I did, I hadn't turned it on yet, that's for sure. In any event, I wonder what Jack Palladino used protect himself, that seemed to have failed at just the wrong time. (Or maybe he was just sick of his wife? Oh, probably not. He doesn't seem to like that joke. Oh, sorry Dude--and there's probably some other stuff about being dead that you're not going to like either. My condolences.)

So anyway:
QuoteIn a career spanning more than 40 years, Palladino worked for a who's who of the famous and the sometimes infamous, alternately hailed as a hero or denounced as a villain, depending on who his client was at the time.
Quotealternately hailed as a hero or denounced as a villain

Yeah, so: I guess this is my area now. Sure, why not? It's not like I have got anything better to do.

QuoteHe was hired by Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign to put a lid on women who were coming forward to claim they had had sex with the future president. [...] He was also the investigator for the family of a 14-year-old boy who won a multimillion-dollar settlement from Michael Jackson after accusing the entertainer of molesting him. Jackson was never charged with a crime in that case. [...] Their clients included everyone from the Black Panthers and Hells Angels to celebrities like Courtney Love, Robin Williams and Kevin Costner. They once recovered a truckload of stolen equipment for the Grateful Dead, and Palladino spent years investigating the mass suicide of the Jonestown cult in Guyana. [...] Some celebrity clients, like Williams and Costner, were the targets of fan or tabloid abuse. In Love's case, she was being linked to unfounded allegations that she played a role in the suicide of her husband, Kurt Cobain.

Jesus, did this guy have no shame? No wonder he's pissed. I bet he thought somebody owed him something. "Those fuckers owe me!!!" I can hear the shrieking starting to wind up now.

QuoteFor (John) DeLorean, he discovered that the former General Motors executive had been set up by authorities, who had charged him with trafficking millions of dollars in cocaine in what they said was a failed effort to prop up his failing DeLorean Motor Co. DeLorean was acquitted.

Oh. Toll debt, paid in full, looks like. U mad, bro? He dead, word. But he mad, yo. He says he heard about My Mother, The Lich, he says he wants a piece of the action. Oh, sure. What a great idea. Hang on Buddy, let me just break down for you on how to do that: step one, go find yourself a bag of dicks. Step 2, No.

Even Art didn't ask to be a lich. This guy just strolled right up and asked. No wonder they sent him on to me. This guy is truly adorable. Luckily, My Mother, The Lich is just a fantasy. Just like Jack Palladino is now. Right? (You can imagine the shrieking. This guy is beyond pissed. I suppose I would be too, if such a thing called psychokinetic shielding actually existed and I didn't find out till after I had been killed. Guess you didn't detect that, huh Pal-0?)

Quote"Jack was a pillar of the legal and professional community. He was a firm believer in due process, First Amendment rights, particularly freedom of speech and freedom of the press," Palladino's lawyer, Mel Honowitz, said in an emotional statement confirming Palladino's death.

What was his position on Assange? I can't ask him now. It's against the rules, and I don't care what his opinion is. Ho ho ho, Dead Guy. Hey, at least you didn't just get droned. You got two drones. (Instead of acknowledging this tremendous honor, he's begun to pout. No wonder this doesn't happen often. No one will ever ask to be a lich, ever again. Good. Mom is quite enough, thanks.)

QuoteAlthough he still took the occasional case, Palladino had largely retired a year ago, his wife said, adding that the two were looking forward to traveling and pursuing photography, which was a passion for both of them.

Cut down in the prime of life. I'll be honest, it's not my business, just curious: did this guy have life insurance? Yeah it's probably a faux pas to even ask. Shrug. (The pouting has dissolved into sobs. Poor guy. I don't even know what his deal is at this point. Do you think I care? Gablings & Stardarlings... I absolutely do not.)

QuoteThe couple married in 1977, the same year they founded Palladino & Sutherland Investigations.

I think that's the same year that I fell off my tricycle and fucked up my sinuses. Probably just a coincidence. Probably a better year for him. Married 33 years, huh? You know I'll tell you what, I know that my father was married, and I know that I don't know how many years he was married, but I do know that he died on his wedding anniversary. As you can see... I am a terrible detective. And, I just let personal facts about my life and my parents life just dribble out right in front of everybody! Columbo would be furious.

Ask me if I give a shit, Kids. That's right. Holder of The Chalice, in the house. If this Palladino character had any idea how exalted he was to even be here, he'd be happier. Right now he seems to be relentlessly self-absorbed. He went off to go hide somewhere. Apparently things that I'm looking for him. Oh no, no no, no no no, fuck no. I'll be honest the first few spirits came by and visited me were kind of novel. It's no big deal anymore. Not to me, anyway. I've been doing this for a while.

I guess I was supposed to mention that 7 years ago, huh Bellgab? Yeah, sorry, slipped my mind. Scusi, mille regretie.

QuoteWhile many in their business keep a low profile, they did anything but. They publicly took on high-profile cases while the media sometimes compared them to Nick and Nora Charles, the fictional, wisecracking, high-society husband-and-wife detective team in the Dashiell Hammett potboiler, "The Thin Man."

Spare me the details, if you don't mind. Imagine the dry cleaning bill.

Quote"I am somebody you call in when the house is on fire, not when there's smoke in the kitchen," Palladino told the San Francisco Examiner in 1999. "You ask me to deal with that fire, to save you, to do whatever has to be done to the fire - where did it come from, where is it going, is it ever going to happen again?"

'99, huh? I wonder where he was at on JFK on 9/11. Fortunately, we'll never know: please stop letting his peanut butter brain dribble out all over my immensely powerful chocolate bar. So to speak. You get the idea.

I don't think this guy is coming back after this. This suits me down to the ground, of course. The less annoyed I get, the more effective I can be in reality. Whatever that passes for these days. Y'all elected Joe Biden, huh?

Oh, but Jackstar is the crazy one. Oh-kay fine.

QuoteOver the years, some people, including the women who brought accusations against Clinton, complained that Palladino sometimes threatened and harassed them, their families and friends.

Ah, here it is, here it is: The Wrap-Up Smear. And the worst thing is, at this point I can't even tell the difference! You know me, I don't judge. I will say, however: what kind of a dick wants to be a lich? Well, I guess this guy, and my Mom. And my mother is no dick, has no dick, and... I mentioned my father died on his wedding anniversary, right? I'm pretty sure she gets a pass on this one. It's not like I wanted her to be a lich. I didn't even want her to be a poltergeist!

What I wanted, was for her to be able to talk to me. Well, looks like she took it one step further. Or maybe it was a curse that was supposed to upset me, I have no effin' idea. I'm cool with it though, you know me... I don't judge.

Although if I did, it would be my judgment that y'all should leave out cookies for her as well as Santa every year. Just in case. What could it hurt? Fuckin' websites give out enough cookies. What are y'all, stingier than a website? Yeah, well... it's up to you. I am well past being concerned on this point.

I've got bigger fish to fry. BEHOLD:

QuoteAlthough he would acknowledge he wasn't afraid to What I wanted,ask tough questions, Palladino denied ever crossing the line either ethically or legally.

All he was ever after was the truth, he said, adding that he was better at getting it than most other private eyes.

"I'm not a self-effacing individual," he told the Examiner. "I am a driven, arrogant person who holds himself and everyone around him to incredibly high standards."

Those of you who are (or, were--get a life) a fan of the TV show Night Court, or ever read a book by Piers Anthony, Wielding A Red Sword, probably have an eighth sense of what's happening here, and will be pleased to punch, as I am, to hear me say: "I'm passing, thanks. MOVE ALONG." Not really sure what this was all about, really. But I'll tell you what, it's like this: NO DEALS.

QuoteJohn Arthur Palladino was born in Boston on July 9, 1944, the son of a pipe fitter.

Hey, that's cool. My mother's birthday was July 8th. Small world.

Quotepassing the state Bar exam in 1978. But by then, he had already found that his true passion was investigations.

So... he got married, and then became a lawyer. Huh. I wonder if he knew how to divorce himself? I bet the thought never crossed his mind. This fucking guy.

QuoteWhile still a student in 1971, he had himself incarcerated in New York's Nassau County as part of an undercover operation exposing rampant crime in the county's jails. In 1974, the family of newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst hired him to help investigate members of the Symbionese Liberation Army, the ragtag band of young revolutionaries that had kidnapped her.

What was he, the inspiration for Encyclopedia Brown? He's chasing down Patty Hearst while he's 30. Talk about working one's way up from the mailroom. Let's see, what was I doing at 30? Oh, right, I remember: being starved for oxygen and thinking that there must be something wrong with me. Everyone said so. And wow, were they every correct.

No one did anything about it besides, whining & mewling about it, but they were all certain that they were right. And I guess that's what used to count in life. Huzzah.

Quote"I was planning to be a lawyer," he once told People magazine of his law school years. "I didn't know in those days that investigations would make everything else seem dull, unchallenging and uninvolving."

I once thought about being a lawyer for a while. Then I heard you have to do a lot of studying, which at the time to me meant homework, which to me meant, I didn't want to do it. And why lawyers didn't like lawyer jokes. Fast forward to now... oh, I know why now. It's because they can't bill for the emotional labor they have to undergo when they hear one. I'm sure that's galling.

He's got his talent, and I've got mine. What are you, seriously imagining that I've got The Limitless Pill? Rather, I've got news for you, Corporal Clank--I've always been able to write like this. I simply had no reason to before now, or lately. Ask around. It's a true story. And while the presented evidence might support the notion that I was crazy and I'm now struggling to maintain sanity... well, no--it's the other one.

I'll let you know when the extraordinary evidence that you're going to be expecting to be delivered to you post-haste clears its way through Customs. I wouldn't wait up late tonight if I were you. And then, tomorrow, I hear Customs is going to be busy with an entire day of processing cat box photos from Cydona. Is that weird? That's weird, right? Why would I even think of such a thing? Oh, right, because it's funny, and I was there. Heh heh.

Also, I'm pretty sure that Wayfair just killed Wayfarer. I'm not certain, it's like one of those endfilm fightscenes where two robot clones are going at it--to the death, not to the pain--and one of them goes down, and the other one gets an inkblot test.

Stay tuned. I'm getting snacks.

Knives Out - Harlan's Plan: ...

I missed his passing by a few years apparently.  Your "Harlan" reminded me of the bastigeHarlan Ellison.

Always enjoyed his idea of "revenge":  Send them enough bricks (post-paid) that theythe hobo elite could build a defensible position behind which to hide...

Prosit, Harlan!

Ellison provided a description of himself and his writing: "My work is foursquare for chaos. I spend my life personally, and my work professionally, keeping the soup boiling. Gadfly is what they call you when you are no longer dangerous; I much prefer troublemaker, malcontent, desperado. I see myself as a combination of Zorro and Jiminy Cricket. My stories go out from here and raise hell. From time to time some denigrater or critic with umbrage will say of my work, 'He only wrote that to shock.' I smile and nod. Precisely."

Practically a godfather of Gabdom.

Not famous but should be appreciated more than Hollywood or sports "stars" who die. Fucking tragic.

I can't find details, yet. But, regardless, a tragedy and should be more appreciated and on "news" more than some Hollywood or sports "star" death.  Horrible. Or politician that they always make a big deal over when one of them, finally, keels over due to scotch and regulatory capture bills. With a wife carrying baby and just doing his job on the road.

Damn shame.  But it goes with the job.  Salute to a fallen brother.


He's gone thread. I guess he just sort of slipped away.
