I could only add people already in my contacts.

It was funny anyway.

Appreciate your enthusiasm and support for Mike's Skype Thing, Kormodd.

And I appreciate you guys doing it. The Skype Thing is pretty fun, overall.
Ever do nothing and gain nothing from it?
Ever feel stupid and then know that you really are?
Ever think you're smart and then find out you aren't?
Ever play the fool and then find out that you're worse?

Here's an example of "weird fiction," for those who are unfamiliar with it: http://www.hplovecraft.com/writings/texts/fiction/o.aspx

I'm a smoker, and I don't find the way Rustin Cohle smokes to be particularly strange. Holding the cigarette between your thumb and index finger is unorthodox, but it's not verboten among real smokers. I mainly prefer to hold a cigarette between my index finger and middle finger, but I've held one between my thumb and index finger before, and I've seen other people do it too.

And yeah, I'm trying to kick the habit by using e-cigarettes.

Bad guys always hold their cigarettes oddly. Haven't you seen Coffee and Cigarettes.

And I'm reading The King in Yellow now. In it, "The King in Yellow" is a play that drives the people who read it crazy and makes them devotees of the King in Yellow, who seems to be some sort of unpleasant divinity who lives on another planet; his followers want to overthrow the U.S. government and appoint an emperor to represent the Yellow King on Earth. So far, human sacrifice isn't demanded, but murder is deemed necessary to eliminate unsuitable pretenders to the emperor-ship (a complicated genealogy is created by one of the characters to determine who this person is). Mike would no doubt find the book to be pure junk, but I'm enjoying it.

Mike: Why waste your time watching a show you don't like? Instead of spending your time watching the last three episodes of True Detective, why not reread Hamlet or something?

I've seen it. I've never really put much thought into how characters in movies smoke cigarettes (I had to rewatch one of the scenes in True Detective to see what Mike was talking about). I guess I need to start paying more attention to what I watch.

You and most other folks.

Tom loves you.

It's been documented.

P.S. It is in the the first scene.

Someone stole my copy (Probably the NSA.).

Back atcha, kid.


I just listened to an episode where Frank from Weehawken calls in as "Frank from Scotch Plains." It was jarring. He did manage to mention Mike in Manhattan, and Tom hung up on him on disgust, so all was normal at the end of the call.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

One of my favorite all-time hang-ups was a Halloween when Frank asked Tom if he gave out big candy bars because he was rich .  Tom stumbled a bit, like a great hitter getting frozen by a change-up. Then he recovered and GOMP'ed Frank. Great memory.
