Raingod’s Weblog

Snark spoken here

And the winner is….

Skeevy McGee, for his winning entry:

Cockinshiner is a Germanic word with no English equivailent. A lesser known subset of the doppelgänger myth, a cockinshiner is the evil double of an individual’s penis. So, when Nicky suspects you might be his cockinshiner, you have just received a major ice burn.

“And but when Nicholas Kane bent down to take the penis of the stranger he did not know into his mouth it was seen and shown that the penis was an exact double of Nick’s own, and Nick’s horror was not to be conceived by the human mind or brain.

Nikita’s whine party – for one

Looks like La Femme Nikita posted his “everyone’s picking on me” article over on Associated Content, where the stringent criteria for publishing, is having an internet connection and a keyboard. Way to go Nikita! Aiming high as always I see. The link to this lulzapalooze is here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/945957/internet_trolls_when_the_family_gets.html?cat=9

By now, most who read my blog have seen this; but see, unlike Nikita I actually have a life and was out living said life for most of the day.  When I got home from a very enjoyable luncheon date, my first since damon passed last year, I was alerted to LFN’s scrawl. There’s about 5 pages of his incoherent, patently bad writing, with grammar and spelling errors to lower a 3rd world countries educational scores.

But to summarize, he complains about internet trolls and bullies, yet calls someone at midnight while his inbred family listens in. Yup, victims ALWAYS do that, don’t they? He then goes on to talk about how his non fiction book scared everybody in the industry.  What scared them was the piss poor writing, non existent editing, and general whininess of Nikita’s tripe. He claims to have disturbing knowledge of the industry, yet he only comes across as disturbed. He seems to think because he’s a “writer” (much the same way Paris Hilton is an actress, in name alone), that somehow people are jealous. That is perhaps the biggest laugh and the smoking gun that shows NIkita is a hack, with apologies to the hacks.

The astonishing thing is this; as someone who claims to be a writer, he proves his detractor’s right. His Troll piece is so filled with bad spelling, gaps in logic, bad grammar, that no one could ever confuse him with being an author.

so perhaps some good will come out of this after all. La Femme Nikita, you’re giving yourself enough rope, so watch where you step.

BTW: Everyone still has time to enter my contest. Submissions will be accepted until midnight August 24th. Further details are here: https://raingods.wordpress.com/2008/08/14/contest/

Contest!

First things first. Head over to TRN and read the cockinshiner entry, here: http://therustynail.wordpress.com/2008/08/14/cockinshiner/. Then come on back and post your best guess as to what a cockinshiner is, and then using it in your best Nikita style sentence.

Winner will receive my personal copy of Tom Piccirilli’s novel, Frayed. Why Frayed? Well here’s the jacket blurb:

“Are you the one who helped him kill the angel?”

Twenty years of repressed anger and memories. A bitter knot of hatred that binds and divides two friends. The dark secret that fuels and devastates them both.

“He killed it. I only helped him to bury it.”

Eddie’s doing his best to get by, but every day the good fight just gets harder. And now there’s a new burden to shoulder. Gray – his best friend and nemesis in literature, romance, and life – has landed in a bizarre mental hospital, known for its radical treatments, because Gray couldn’t bear the weight of an unspeakable trauma.

The last time they met, Gray almost killed Eddie, but it seems that all is finally forgiven. Tonight, there’s a wild hootenanny up at Gray’s house.

The nuthouse.

And Eddie’s invited.

Winner will be announced on August 25, NIckolaus Pacione Day!

Good luck
