I just went to politicswny.com. I've never seen so much
advertising on a "political" web site. He's even
advertising for his own advertising ("ad space available").
Too bad we can't take a paint can to online banners. What
a scumbag. This guy deserves whatever comes out of this
battle, and more.
the way, I had never heard of politicswny before this. Has
politicians. Nobody who matters.
out for this political hack weasle. I wouldn't put it past
him to try and set you up or something sneaky like that.
He's already running his mouth off around town saying he's
going to punch your lights out if he ever comes across you,
so watch your back with this creep. He's an old sucker puncher
(like most cowards are) from way back. He's certainly no
tough guy, but he sure is one political hack weasle.
promise to kick our asses all the time. None have (this
is not a challenge; we’re perfectly fine with that). We’re
not scared of Illuzzi, which apparently separates us from
every politician in town. On the other hand, if he did assault
us, it’d be a great story for the next issue.
a followup comment, then I promise to leave you folks alone.
The second edition of PWNY the Mag has a story on the inevitable
collapse of the Democrats in Chautauqua County. Whether
or not that is true, the article certainly neglects to cover
anything that's happened in, oh, the last three months with
the Dem party. I wonder if part of the reason is that it
is written by a "Randall Brown", who I suspect
(but do not know) is the same Randy Brown who ran as a Republican
against Assemblyman Bill Parment and lost by 14,000 votes.
Now that's the sort of journalistic credibility Buffalo
is known for!
i get Illuzzi's craptastic glossy mag for free. And I have
no idea why. I just keep wishing quality publications start
showing up in my mailbox. So far, no such luck.

I was referring to the fact that you had wasted resources
by being distracted by a distraction. People with IQ's lower
than our esteemed president's — which stands at a hefty
91 by the way — were stopping me in the street to point
out this fact. And since your header to our last little
exchange was so pedantically hissy; have you realized your
error yet in following up the brouhaha raised by Cruise's
attorney with a "Cruise Baiting" issue, yet?
mean, you were handed 35mUSD (I asked) in free advertising.
Paul — I'd be just thrilled to write for you again, but
alas I'm working on a play.
Tragedy of George II
a farce. Want to know how it ends?
happen to think that our nation’s pacification by a media
replete with irrelevant human interest stories while liberty
crashes down around our ears is an entirely appropriate
subject. But hey, what do we know, we just make the paper.
You’re the one that’s going to make us millions, right?
understand you’re an anti-establishment paper And it’s refreshing.
you print bullshit too? Itza Crock’s article [“Cross
Examination,” issue 67, 1/23/05] was just that. Unmitigated
reeks of the devil. That’s who wrote it, right? The devil
works for the beast?
don’t know what Bible he’s reading. It’s not the same one
I read. Itza Crock has got the facts wrong. One has to be
open-minded. The spirit of the Word is what is important.
Itza Crock whants the Truth or you do call the Doc or write
think it’s pretty obvious from our publication of your letter
that we have no compunction about printing bullshit. Judging
by the sheer bigness of your handwriting, we’re guessing
your scriptural discrepancies can be traced to the fact
that many passages have been left out of your Playskool
Bible for Tots. And no, the devil doesn’t work for us; we
work for him. BOO! We’re glad you were refreshed by our
antiestablishmentarianism, at least until we criticized
the establishment you hold dear.
Beast, Keep up the good work. It is probably a sad comment
on the times when the best news is coming from a satire
magazine, but I just love your reportage; especially the
caustic pieces on the political powerbrokers, financiers,
realty moguls & other evil plutocrats that are the mipulative
powers behind the whorish elected ofrficals that have put
Buffalo & Erie county on the cutting edge of civic meltdown.
However, given the already large numbers of criminals in
the Federal & State levels, keeping track of who is
who amongst the local wanna-be oligarchs in the clusterfuck
that represent local misgovernment is getting daunting.
When not vommitting uncontrollably over the mismanagement
of this country, I am already overwhelmed by the sheer number
of federal players, and I just can't keep track of it all,
let alone the local shitheads. Can you print a chart or
diagram or something of the locals I can pin to my wall
for EZ reference? Can you also do a peice on legal recourses
(or their abscence) that explains why there seems to be
no laws against misgovernance??? ( or if there is, why
none of the faux-humans masquarading as civilleaders are
having their asses traded for a pack of Maroboroughs in
Attica)? Anyway, Keep up the good work.
print a comprehensive chart of the massive infected inflammation
we in WNY call “local government,” We would need sheets
of paper the size of a city block, and that would be in
a 7 point font. As for legal recourse, well, what’s so great
about legality anyway? Try throwing rocks [please don’t
TO THE PARTY
list. The cursory few liberals sprinkled among your vitriol
and hatred of republicans. How original. Not one fucking
muslim terrorist scum listed in the bunch. Also no black
liberals. Thankfully, no one reads your shit. I only saw
it because it was linked. Ah, what an amusing little liberal.
Don't let facts get in your way.
hope it made you feel better to call us “little,” but we’d
like to point out that we actually intended
to be amusing. Also, for the millionth time, it’s the most
loathsome people in AMERICA, not Afghanistan, genius. We’d
love to hear some of your “facts,” if only to reassure ourselves
that people like you have no clue what’s actually happening
in the world, and are determined to stay that way. But we’re
afraid we just don’t have enough time to interpret your
grunting, ape-like vocalizations. We can’t understand you,
Chris; we don’t speak shithead.
The Beast Staff:
this is the place to send good comments. You guys are the
gold standard in alternative press, nobody's even close.
All of your articles are strong, but one of the best was
"I Bedded Ann Coulter". I think you should keep
moving in that narrative direction. Stories have broad
apeal and the power to change peoples minds or look at what
is happening in a new light. You guys were right, Cruise
should be happy your spreading hetero rumers about him.
Don Imus, who has a million times your audience was cracking
queer jokes about Cruise last week. The difference is that
your conclusions are more intellegent and have the ring
of truth. I'm working on some stories myself, when they're
ready, I'll send them in attachments. you can do what ever
you want with them.
we make little airplanes out of them? Origami swans? What
if we glued them all together and then threw them at your
head? Would that be okay? Hey, you said whatever, right?
CAN YOU FEAR ME?
I just want to say I love your paper! You guys crack me
I know how much you guys adore Tom Cruise, so I thought
you may find the following interview with Entertainment
favorite quote taken from the interview:
been taking a lot of flak for your appearance on Oprah,
for all the jumping around you did on the show. Does the
criticism bother you?
I don't care. I can't live my life based on what other people
think about me. Who cares what other people say? There are
some people who just don't like to see other people happy.
They try to actively stop it. They find that sort of happiness
ugly. They're in the minority, but they squawk pretty loud.
They're like the bullies you grow up with in school. But
you know what? If they don't like it, f--- them. If people
don't like it, f--- off."
sure find it interesting for someone who got so upset over
being listed on your "50 Most Loathsome People"
list can say the above. ~Liz Curry
he’s got a zombie she-slave to convert now, so he’s probably
in a better mood.
hope that you can print this letter to tell people that
Buffalo State College is not friendly to working artists
in the community. If you're thinking about giving them
money, please read this.
a kid in Syracuse, I attended a public, unmoderated figure
drawing group for almost a decade. It got me into an art
profession. Regular figure drawing is vital to many artists.
The group I was with, http://www.openfiguredrawing.com/
offered the ideal benefits: public accessability for all
skill levels, at a low price, with a long-term core membership
of pros, run by dedicated volunteers. It wasn't just great
for practice, it was great for connections, something you
don't get from on-again off-again groups. It gave and recieved
so much community support that it was able to incorporate
as a non-profit.
I moved to Buffalo last year, I was disappointed to find
temporary, student, or invitation-only groups, but none
that offered what Syracuse had. Then I found a group that
was just being put together. It was free and public, run
by permission of the Buff State Visual Arts Board. It was
an amazing resource for Buff State students and alumni,
but it wouldn't have existed without regular attendees and
volunteers from outside.
last year the group went on hiatus for the summer. This
year was going to be different- except that the director
of the art department objected. Today, 6/13, the group
was cancelled for the summer. Now, I don't speak for the
group, only myself as a member, but I heard that the excuse
was to "protect the facilities" (though no example
of damage was given), as if working artists cooperating
for community benefit are going to crap in their own beds.
Another possible reason is selfish politics, because the
VAB changed directors.
what does Buffalo State College value more than a thriving
arts community? Too bad for us local artists, who might
not be able to get to less available groups, and were trying
to form a permanent public group, they chose a safe but
assure you, we were never in danger of giving Buff State
any of our money.
