231239-282955-thumbnail.jpg You may remember my reviewing the Gerard Jones site everyonewhosanyone.com last year in radar at the sydney morning herald . I've gone back and had another look at his revamped site. It still makes me sad. Tonight I played some of his Ebook and it made me even sadder. And he annoys me when he claims his book Ginny Good is the single greatest literary achievement of the 21st Century. Sad part is, I think he's serious. But, like, whatever. Have a listen to an excerpt from his Ebook Ginny Good. There's some great music there, I like his voice and the story's O.K. But it still makes me goddamn sad. Sad that he's put all this work in and it doesn't seem to have advanced him any. Just seems to have pissed the trade off. Nobody's breaking the door down to publish him.

I'm too modest to say how good it REALLY is...read it and see for yourself if you know how to read. G.

I've read it man. I prefer Bukowski, the truth be told. But I admire what you're doing. And you're funny at the same time. So I've read you but I bet , I JUST BET, you haven't read any of my stories because you're too busy trying to get your head out of your arse (you can quote me on that). :) see...a little smiley thingey to let you know I'm pulling your leg.

Here's Bukowski talking to you:


The Audio Book of Ginny Good is the greatest literary work of art of all time...anyone with any branes who's heard the whole fifteen hour extravaganza knows that's a total fact. G.

That's a cool audio. Enjoyed it. Just sent you $5. I have a Hunter S Thompson story under "Malradio" on the Nav. Column. No need to send me $5. Do you have a Mug-Shot I can put up next to this piece? Oh...and it's "brains" not "branes". Unless, of course, you want to spell it that way. Hasta le Vista, Gerard.

I kick Hunter Ess's ass. Here's some Kesey and Mario Savio, too:


And some Ginsberg:


And Kerouac talking about a bee. G.

When I say a Hunter S. story...I mean I met the guy when he was Downunder. That's what this 10 minute podcast is about. Maybe my next will be "Conversations with Gerard Jones". LOFL. Found your piccie on Google BTW. You, in your twenties by the look of it. Can I whack it up here? You want people to send you a few shekels for the Audio Books BTW?
February 28, 2006 | Registered CommenterMalcolm Lambe
Whack up whatever you want but in the only picture I know of on the Internet I was around forty, I think. People can do whatever they want with their shekels, as well, but it's free. Oh, here's Jerry Garcia (Laughing), Timothy Leary (Dying) and Neal Cassidy (Talking Fast and Slow). G.

Hi there Gerard.
I'm a huge, huge fan of yours too.
I still remember that try you scored for Wales against France in the deciding game of the Five Nations at Cardiff in 1978...

That's fingers. He wrote a bestseller in the Sixties called "How to be a Complete Fucking Idiot without even trying".

He knows it's fingers, you dumb cunt.
It says as much under the post...
