Fame and Fortune aka. HEIL GLIDER

It's so funny — a few of you have mentioned that my obsessed super-fans (anti-fans I guess) are planning a new anti-Shannon, anti-IAM, anti-BME, and anti-iWasCured shirt (and judging by the tattoo, anti-Martini as well — but Marty's like a brother and I don't mind if they get us mixed up!).

For those that don't know, here's the quick version of the story. About seven years ago, yttrx made fun of “Rave”'s implant on #bodyart (irc). Rave thought it was me that had made fun of him (even though at this point he must realize it was not me, but I guess he doesn't want to lose face by admitting he spent seven years obsessed over the wrong person), and started to become obsessed (eventually dragging along his girlfriend who's website that shirt page is on).

Then a few years later, he spent a while dating an ex of mine who spent their entire relationship telling him how much smaller his penis was, and I guess that twisted his head up in a knot that a sort of black-hole-of-anger radiated out from around him. Then my leaving the CoBM was the final straw I suppose and they both lost it. Funny from an objective point of view, but sort of sad and pathetic at the same time.

In any case, I think it's hilarious. That said, on a purely humanitarian level I hope [y] and Rave grow out of it one day — they're both intelligent people that have things to offer the world, and it's too bad they're just wrapped up with obsessing over me instead of going on with their own lives.

Now to start the actual editing on the video — five hours of raw footage, ack! I have to bring the footage down to about forty minutes tops I figure to make it fit nicely on a widescreen DVD (along with the 8/11/02 BBQ). I'm going to try and squeeze on as many of the older videos on as possible (they can be overcompressed I figure). The work will be totally worth it though — the footage is beautiful (thanks to the subject matter).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
