polite peter chung and rude mark mars

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

In reading posts from Peter and Mark, I found a striking difference between these two friends. Yes, one is a gentleman and the other is bad-mannered. Mark, I don’t deny that you are a genius, (I’ve seen your contributions to Aeon Flux) but I wonder if those statements by you that are now respectably quoted came about just arbritrarily, are they just random “big words” that have won the respect of many. Maybe you should tailor your “habits,” they’re offensive.

There is a certain strut to him though..."Black and orange stray cat sittin' on a fence...ain't got enough dough to pay the rent. I'm flat broke but I don't care. I strut right by with my tail in the air! Stray cat strut I'm a ladies cat. I'm a feline Cassanova-hey man that's that. Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man. Get my dinner from a garbage can (Mtv). Meow! Yeah....Don't cross my path! I don't bother chasin' mice around. whoa no! Slink down the alley lookin' for a fight. Howling to the moonlight on a hot summer night. Singin' the blues while the lady cats cry...wild stray cat your a real gone guy! I wish I could be as carefree and wild but he's got cat class and he's got cat style". (Stray cat strut; Stray cats)

Well thank you for providing very cool pics of him at this recent event, thus proving he's still alive! His image speaketh volumes.

-- Barb e (Suesuesbeo9@cs.com), June 05, 2003.

Still, I miss his wayward style and wit. Mark, if your out there, come back and tell us how you liked Animatrix?

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo9@cs.com), September 25, 2003.

would sell the product of a dimes worth of matriculated bullshit and give you some things to fuckin talk about you and your delusive sanctities erected on summits of festering injuries reaped to see how shit grows from annealed simulations of your own flanking constructions what to denude what to denude and desiccate your slime with what making choices arbitrarily would like to see you do it view thoughts on seeing how arbitrary it could be to make the decision to approach/verbalize the interpretations of fresh perspectives to this would concede dont you see howdat be dangerboyz

Man, whats with all this Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia.

-- Sam (janecherrington@paradise.net.nz), October 26, 2002.

So, just because an artist posts on a forum that is partially about him and his work, he's not allowed to be "offensive"? Do we have to like someone as a person before we can appreciate their art?

-- Inu (paul@nadisrec.com), October 26, 2002.

Thank you, Barb! For the record, of course, I am certainly no genius. I don't even know what my IQ is but it's not really up there, you know? And shit, I'm cracking up because come on I have to admit I'm such a asshole I appreciate someone coming on board here to give me a taste of what I come off like to other people, sometimes.

Danger, about that gender question...

Gender Question: WHICH ONE??? I mean, WHICH GENDER question!?! YOU people, PEOPLE, HEEEERE, are all well and definitively awAAAAAAAre that I cant' EVEN THINK STRAITJACKET.

Oh but BTW johnpaulmatthew (sans Mark, I take it - what's this some allusion to some "pinochle gospel", here now or WHUD now) - it seems apparent to me upon a bit of reflection that you are attempting, here, to attack myself as an easy target for your own displeasure since Chung is too hard for you. Oh, oh pooh pooh you.

Having known Mark for so many years, it's hard for me to comprehend what it must be like for anyone to experience him without meeting him.

So I'm posting these shots of him, with his permission. #2 is a freeze frame from a student film, the rest are shots I've taken of him.

1, 2, 3.

If you can somehow imagine a cross between David Bowie, Johnny Rotten, Lenny Bruce, and Diamanda Galas you're at least getting warm.

Then there's this shot of Mark, making the scene at one of the Animatrix screenings here in Hollywood.

-- Greg Ercolano (erco@3dsite.com), June 05, 2003.

Mark and Peter are strange critters each in thier own right. Chung appears polite and benevolent and Mark appears rude, crude and socially unacceptable but I assure you I have seen the opposite displayed in the behavior of both. Mark is often a crusty critter who I feel at times should be locked in a small cage and poked with sticks. He came to our house once and I had to promise my live in lady that he would never be allowed back. He likes to sleep in his leather jacket and drink warm, falt beer for breakfast. His voice is very loud and can be heard over the cacophony of any large gathering usually making some ridiculous pronouncement that often appears deep and insightful evoking the possibility of creative genius but usually folding under investigation. He is a bad habit I will (alas) probably always have and definately an original. If he could just stop asking me for five bucks every time I see him and return my damn firewire and pay off what he owes me I would be able to write a more favorable report.
