NOTES FROM THE DUMP

Random "...NOTES...from wrinkled scraps...


…I’m about to enter my arteriovenous malformation period in which either my DVTs get me, my breaking ticker quits or a stroke smites me down as sure as would Excalibur in the hands of King Arthur…now I ask you is that plain enough or what? All it means is that the Grim Reaper is in the 'hood...some reviewer of NOTES in a publication called Zine World, wrote thusly of NFTD, and I might add, set me off like an M-80…here is what ‘Jack’ wrote:

Notes From the Dump #415: I have no fucking idea what this guy is talking about. It makes my head hurt. References to the Grateful Dead, Jane and Rasa whom he’s not heard from in 45 years, medulla oblongatas, the sleazy dirtbags at Halliburton, and the oil embargo of 1973. Plans on writing a book. Terry Ward, PO Box 133, Westminster Station VT 05159, nftdnotes@yahoo.com [$? 6M :30] –Jack

Hi, it’s me again, you hoser, TWard, Terry - I am not used to and don’t like being criticized, so with great umbrage I fired off a note to Jack’s editor, Lynne Bailey:
Lynne, hi...

...the reason Jack's head hurts is because it takes a little cerebral work to appreciate NFTD and he isn't cut out for it...am I correct in thinking he spent a whole 6:30 seconds on it...wow...after 21 years of poring my literal and literary heart and soul out to a very widespread and global audience (NFTD has been featured in many mainstream media publications - The Boston Globe, The New York Times and People Magazine and the subject of a Public Television program, not to mention a 100 underground reviews) suddenly a neophyte having a bad day torpedoes my magnum opus in 6 mins. 30 secs?

...I don't think so...look here Jack, thinking is hard work that's why not a lot of people do it, give it a try Dude. It really doesn't matter to me what people are saying just so's they are talking about me and NFTD, ever in the vanguard, way ahead of the curve, and over your head son, over your head...Regardz, TWard

Jack apparently hasn’t heard: Even people who don't like to read like to read Notes From The Dump, am I wrong? Take a couple Pamprin Jack...

If People magazine can publish a story that was read and understood all over the country, then there is something wrong with this dude, keep up the good work and don't sweat negitive comments from morons.
