Apologia for 25 years of Being

I apologise for having a childhood and youth (like Lao Tzu it is best to get old age out of the way first).
I apologise for letting individuals declaim about ‘morality’ and ‘suffering’ without first asking them to showcase the ontological foundation for such queer facts.
I apologise for being too cold to some and too warm to others.
I apologise for not vocalising my almost visceral hatred of Blaise Pascal.
I apologise for not doing any more work on the script for Speculative Realist Movie (‘they’re keeping it real, speculatively real’).
I apologise for having spent so many hours of my adolescence reading third rate weird fiction when I could have been reading Tolstoy or Aeschylus.
I apologise for the existence of True Detective and the fact that the world probably hasn’t heard the last of it.
I apologise for not having cultivated a more prodigious and baroque array of facial hair – special apologies to Husserl and Frege on this point.
I apologise for not attempting to save the works of H.P. Lovecraft from the Lovecraftians, the dullest cult imaginable.
I apologise for having wasted time and money on gimmicky projects when it would have been better used to help friends.
I apologise to Monsieur Karmazinov for potentially endangering his sales figures.
I apologise to the One for complaining about the Many.
I apologise for those whose horizons are determined by US politics and to everyone else for not knowing what to do about them.
I apologise for not taking down Jeremy Dyson – I was endeavouring to but his hairstyle overpowered me.
I apologise for continuing to listen and talk with people who effectively claim that their words have no meaning.
I apologise for what happened with the New Doctor Who series.
I apologise for revealing the secret identity of ‘the Ray’ aka Marco Salazar – ‘Right On!!’
I apologise for the fact that certain kinds of pop-rhetoric have been allowed to infect the collective consciousness with a view akin to that of some of Lovecraft’s fiction: that ‘the Truth’ is terrifying, maddening, et cetera, and thus the ‘lie’, or at least ignorance, is preferable
I apologise to Julian for Gore Vidal and friends (I couldn’t stop them).
I apologise to Ligotti for not asking if he saw that in cold climates puppets without strings caper just as well.
I apologise to the Asian pear and to its victim too.
I apologise for the Noema – I was born too late.
I apologise for not having lobbied to have the present World Fantasy Award replaced by an Abstract entity existing outside Space-Time, thereby offending no-one and taking up less room on Ramsey Campbell’s mantle-piece.
I apologise for not being able to hold a tune (though not to M.S.).
I apologise for being so mellow and good humoured in this apology.

Re: Apologia for 25 years of Being

The long awaited twenty-five
Spit dripping on horror tomes
Enough with the old genre jive
Now it’s time for Dan to roam

The Nightmare Network is my dream
But not without Corrick here
For Lovecraft in my pants I’d cream
Go ahead and call my dare

Re: Apologia for 25 years of Being

I refrained from posting this song yesterday:


Apparently Brian Cox, who plays keyboards on this, later apologised because it was not a scientifically accurate song, the message of the lyrics being contrary to the second law of thermodynamics.

He would have done better to apologise for it being musical pigswill.

I apologise for posting it now.

I apologise for my favorite book of all times being Harriet the Spy.

Re: Apologia for 25 years of Being

I accept all your apologies, Evans. I even accept the apologies Bredanconnell will never make. I apologize for that.
But I will not accept nj's apologies because even a man like myself has his limits.
Qcrisp has nothing to apologize for.

I was young and vulnerable. It was my hormones.

I do not apologise for being an obsess'd Lovecraftian freakboy.

Re: Apologia for 25 years of Being

I appreciate your apologies, Evan. However, being of old age, with another reminder coming this Saturday, for my own part, I will not apologize for anything, even less so for being since I was never consulted. My mother told me once in the prime of childhood that I was a mistake. Being a mistake absolves one from making apologies. I think E.M. Cioran had a similar experience, and I doubt that he apologized for anything.

Re: Apologia for 25 years of Being

I apologize for apologizing. I WILL NOT apologize for loving Harriet the Spy. If this love is wrong then I don't want to be right!
