Hate Mail of the Week, With a Twist: A writer sounds off


1 comment
Turns out it's not just our readers who hate us. Our own writers hate us too. This week, our tastiest batch of hate mail comes from a freelance writer who apparently had a small problem with changes made to his article -- about a Shogon Assassins show at In the Living Room Cafe next Wednesday -- by Michael Gallucci, the editor of Scene's Night & Day section. You know, if your pupose with your write ups was to discredit people who are actually putting in work to achieve is your purpose, you keep that hoe shit to yourself. I am already a credited writer, poet, activist, artist, graphic designer and more. I don't need your magazine trying to change my write ups to discredit what I do. I have so much more going for what I'm about you can't hold me however hard you and your little circle at the scene tries to do. For real write the shit and manipulate it for yourself. That show was legit and it still goes down... Whatever your intentions were to make Malikee who was already an internationally voiced and heard activist for pushing 20years, and the group, G-style and Free, the coffee shop and anything else, don't cross my path and I won't cross yours. I am already aware of professionalism, the legitimancy of what I'm doing, and please if your in tentions were to try to make people look like fools, then as I said, keep that bullshit amongst your little downtown office clowns. and fuck you to your face if you think its about playing people for a joke, the poets, emcee's, and artists involved with what S.A. are doing are continuously working with the community, and the public through violence and struggle firsthand and personally.... like I said you think what is going on out here is a joke, keep that bullshit with your little office friends I don't need that fake shit your trying to post like I can't write an simple fucking write up and I don't need you playing anybody involved with it looking like a fool... go back to playing yourselves for the worst cuz I don't have time for it. If you ever need me to come down to ya'll office to clarify it in person, MY PLEASURE, fuck the games and the bullshit ... Malkiese Paythress
