“The Controversy Continues” & Larry Shore – Part 1

Monday, September 19th, 2016

[Editor’s Note – What follows was an unpublished blog sitting on the back burner for a few years. I decided today would be a good day to publish. Most of the comments by Colleague Larry Shore are malarkey and stuff he has made up or twisted. I will respond point by point in the near future.]

The headline is a reference to a comment several years ago by Colleague Peter Parisi about angst, anger and frustration directed at the WORD by ersatz student activists known as SLAM – the Student Liberation Action Movement – because they couldn’t control the publication despite clandestine, sympathetic and sometimes clandestine support from certain Colleagues in the Department of Film and Media Studies.

My stomach tightened when Parisi made the comment. I, ambivalent, relaxed somewhat when he also said, and this is a recollection despite the quote marks for effect, “That’s good,” meaning the controversy attracted a lot of attention. Of course, Parisi didn’t ask me how I felt about the “controversy.”

I am publishing below Larry Shore’s email to me without comment. That will  come later, yet, I have to say this. One, I would have coffee with the Colleague identified below only if I was accompanied by an entourage of Ninjas. Two, the lies and deceit threaten to overpower my peace of mind.


Attention Colleague Larry Shore Who Calls Himself Professor: What’s With Your Latest Lumpen Goombah Kamikaze Email?

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

I think you should check out this link before you kamikaze-eee your next email to me. There is just too much academic debauchery-demonic looniness-depravity in the department for one Colleague to try to coverup. Your herculean efforts, so to speak, will not make the stables look pristine but only serve to attract attention. But you seem comfortable with that.

save you some time

I saw your recent e-mail.
I thought I could save you some time and hassle. Your notes were wrong,
Tami has nothing to do with the revised radio course.
It is strictly a project between Sissel and Karen.

Some Hunter-L Nostalgia As We Head into the Perils of 2016 …

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Hunter-L is a primary listserv for inter-community information at Hunter College, City University of New York. The listserv use to be robust. Dynamic. Inclusive. Opened to students. But like a lot of things at Hunter, it has waned over the last five years, dumbed down by the Powers That Be who embrace the insipid.
