Find Me On:
Give me enough downvotes, and this weekend I shall lift the veil and expose my alter-ego. I am somebody on this board. Downvote me into the ground and as a reward I’ll let y’all know which one of y’all I am.
Yeah, I’m retired from trolling, but I’ll still occasionally post here and there, innocuous things. In the past, I’ve gotten multiple IPS banned from the board for my corky-isms, so I’m respecting the ‘gum forum now. Plus I ended up pissing off people I actually like on the board.
Anyway Oblivion, those are the facts. And read my post on Amanda Palmer. Dammit, I’m going to start adding to music conversation :)
ATTENTION-Stereogum, Scott, writers and staff. Thanks for putting up with my puerile shenanigans that have sadly gotten me banned ( but deservedly so). I wish to return to the gum, but not as Corky. It is with a heavy heart, but a deep knowing in my Ivy League gut that I must put Corky to permanent rest ( perhaps I will spray the sheets first) and with that, I thank you for all the annoying incredulous paths of trolling schtick that Scott and the ‘gum tolerated until I got banned. Scott, I’m sorry for the bears masquerading as Bowie, and I’m sorry for my upvote naughtiness. Forgive me but I do believe I upvoted you 41 times.( Bows head in shame). But seriously, Corky is going to be gone for good now .
To the guys and the gals on the gum, Awesome Opposum, Nathan Christenson ( pardon if I misspelled your name wrong), Michael_ Billycorganwhenhehadhair, Raptor Jesus, Honlads and KidChair, and that chick that had the real long name, you guys were corky’s favourites :)
P.S. Awesome Opposum you should post more. It would be muchos awesome!
(Corky’s mom-”Corky!!!!! You just shot yourself in the mouth with a flare gun!!!!)
Honlads and KidChair, ,thanks for the understanding. I wish Mediator Bear was present for this ( Joking). But yes, I let the trolling thing get out of hand for sure. It was really immature and I’m sure Scott was at first amused but increasingly annoyed ( especially after the Bowie fiasco). But deep inside, I’m just like you guys on the gum-music lover, hipster ( used to live in L.A. and might head back) and not a mean bone in my small freaky little body. So yes. No more trolling with Corky. I’ll set up something now to take Corky out in style. Honlads, I dig the pic. BTW, Michael_ made a post and I suggest we upvote him for comment of the week, as in the right or wrong or night, Michael_ took a lot of shit and it blew into a needless shitstorm. The dude’s a pretty great writer. I like to stick up for the underdog. Peace.
I saw her live and while she wowed me with her braying of a voice, I was mighty thankfull that she didn’t sing originals. I think there’s an obvious trail where she is increasingly going off the deep end for whatever reason(s) and she very well may be a kind of indie Courtney Love in 10 years if the girl best not behave her self.
I actually wrote this (in all caps because apparently my chosen screen name started appearing minutes letter with really crass asinine things to possibly make it appear like I wrote them as well), but for one, Corky’s going to show the ‘gum he’s got a little pro-social activism in his geeky bones and re-paste my feelings on this gal who really is pretty shameful-
HEY AMANDA PALMER…I KNOW YOU’VE PROVEN TO BE INCREDIBLY INSENSITIVE TO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IN A BID FOR EXTRA MEDIA PUSH ATTENTION SEEKING, BUT THIS IS A NEW LOW, EVEN FOR YOU. WHY NOT WRITE A “POEM” FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE MANY WOUNDED RUNNERS WHO LOST ARMS AND LEGS AND ARE FOREVER TRAPPED IN LIMBO. WHY GLORIFY THE VICARIOUS MUSINGS OF A PSYCHOTIC TERRORIST? YOU AMAZE ME…DEEP INSIDE THERE IS AN ILLNESS IN YOU APPARENTLY THAT CALLS EVIL GOOD AND GOOD EVIL. NOTHING OF SOCIAL CONSEQUENCE CAN COME OUT OF THIS “POEM” TRYING TO FOCUS ON AN EVIL TERRORIST, EVEN THOUGH YOU APPARENTLY FEEL SO. I HAD A SEMBLANCE OF ADMIRATION FOR SOME OF YOUR MUSIC ( THE NON CLOYING CLAUSTROPHOBIC KIND), BUT FOREVER I WILL DISASSOCIATE MYSELF FROM YOU AND YOUR BAND, WHOEVER YOU OPEN FOR OR WHATEVER FESTIVAL YOU PLAY. AREN’T YOU FROM BOSTON? WHY NOT A THINK PIECE ABOUT THE WALKING WOUNDED AND A THOUGHTFUL MEMORIAL FOR THE DEAD? LIBERAL LIBERAL LIBERAL EPIC FAIL.UTTERLY DISGUSTING.
-I’m also aware that the irony in trolling is that it constitutes as attention seeking, But alas. Shame on her. Female morrisey, just not as pretty.
Michael_, the bears and I missed you.
Bah. Banned. No love for Corky but Rubjon has free reign.
ditto amigo! She’s a shameless posturing opportunistic idiot. Go and check out many a comment of dissent from long time fans and haters alike. A new low for the goddess of shameless self promotion. Kind of like a female morrisey only not as pretty.
Yeahhhhh….suuuuuuuuuure. I’m not chopped liver bra.
If indeed you ARE the real rubjon…..(ponders)….
Hey Honlads! You owe me too if you make the week’s worst AND best list!
Hello Mr. Chair. I thought I might try a kind troll and happily upvote you to make comment of the week as a kind gesture for our nearly benign trolling run in’s on the ‘gum. My girlfriend is always on my case about why I troll. She cross-stitches to be honest ( are you a psychic about the cross-stitch thing lol) and indded I also do things any normal semi-freak would do; make music, write music, publish criticism on music, pursue higher academia, and other variables that constitute my semi-charmed kind of life. I never troll to be mean spirited and my alter ego on the board (the real me) has contributed to many a conversation on music with a perceptive approach that adds to the post’s dialogue? Why? Cause I really REALLY love music! So, I’m amazed you pay that much attention to my Corky alter-ego with each pointless trolling trail me or my amigos leave and that’s why I thought, what the hell, I’ll upvote that Kidchair as a kind gesture. And then he pants me, with a complete spongebob picture to top it off. Bah. But you correct sir.
Trolling IS a big waste of time. It wastes my time for sure (I was in the middle of a Twin Peaks marathon when I had to actually spend 15 minutes logging in your upvotes) but you take things way to seriously. But no matter. The non corky me on this board has talked to you many times and we’ve had some good back and forth posts about all things music and you’re a pretty cool dude. Corky’s just a thing man. It’s a stupid thing, yes. An immature borderline obsessive hook hold into trolling type of thing too. Yes. But come on. Enjoy the bizzare characters that help pepper this board. Plus you owe me for those 41 upvotes if you make next week’s highest rated comments list
Nathan Christensen, you beckoned, I came.
Thanks, but Brian…we go home. Tonight. We walk. We’re not wanted here anymore. Time to “dissapear” for a while. You know what I mean. Duly noted, right? No room on these boards for a muffin, a pig named porky, a family of trolling bears, myself and a recipe bear…so, we walk out of stereogum…..and into NME!!!!
for you Kevin Broydrick I/We/They will leave. you have been a perfect gentleman and my time in the blog sun has come and waned. I bring my bears, my muffin, my pig porky and myself….however I leave one troll out there. He’s just beginning A novice, but a good one ;). I hope he doesn’t fail to live up to our standards. Oh and he has a habit of making things particularly “interesting”…
…….especially on friday nights ;)
p.s. CALL ME=
By a Moonlight Mile?
OUTTA SIGHT!!!!!! NIGHT!!!! ;)
