I’ve been thinking lately of one friend I used have a little over a year ago. The last time we had spoken was just before the Christmas season last year. At one time, we were very close, constant companions for about six years. Then some bad things began to happen in her life and she bailed out of our friendship, impulsively leaving the state.

Dragons from the past return to haunt [Feb. 3rd, 2005|10:24 pm]

[Current Mood |irritatedirritated]
[Current Music |Owning my mistakes---Anthony Steward Head]

I had been in a total deep dark funk the last couple of weeks before Christmas. It seems that no matter how hard I try to forget the bad things of the past, they always find a way to rear their ugly heads and roar at me again.

My dragons or demons…what ever they are, have names. Most are male but some are females that for some reason or the other like to screw around with things in my life, stirring up trouble and causing mayhem at every opportune time just for the sake of doing so.

Family can be a real pain in the butt sometimes, especially in-laws.

Take Mrs. J. for instance, she is a member of our family who married into our little group to escape her own twisted family plots and underhanded dealings. Now we have all tried to befriend her at various times and overlooked her numerous faults for the sake of my brother (her husband) and their two sons, JJ and Josh.

Anyway, my youngest nephew Josh turned 15 on his last birthday and began to take Drivers Ed. As part of the present from me, I gave him one of the cars I still had but wasn’t using, a 1984 Olds Toronto. I hadn’t the money or the time to finish repairs on it and had planned to sale it but figured he would enjoy the car much better than I. It was in very good shape, with a new rebuilt high performance engine but still needed some minor maintance (needed a new muffler, the thermostat replaced and maybe a paint job later). I was thinking by the time he got his license and earned enough to get tags and insurance he would have the minor repairs made and be able to use the car to drive to school and to work at the job he had just applied for.

His father didn’t object and was pleased with the gift. His mother on the other hand, saw this as a way to make herself some extra cash and tried to force me into signing the title over to her so she could sale it. She claimed the car was too much for the boy. She wanted to sale it, give him part of the money later to buy another car and she’d keep the rest to for him till he needed it. I refused because I know her history. This was the same trick she pulled on their oldest son when my brother was over seas fighting in Desert Storm and the poor boy never got a car until he graduated and his father bought him one. I asked Josh what he wanted done and he asked that I keep the title until he obtained a license and enough money to get insurance and tags. Then we will transfer the title into his name. He has the car and works on it when he can, driving it up and down the dirt road between our houses and my parents. But his mother keeps calling me to bitch and trying to convince me to give her the title behind my brother’s and her son’s back. She has even begun whining to my father about my hatefulness over the car and how it would help Josh to get the money right now. That is ridiculous and everyone knows the boy doesn’t want the money but she does.

Back in the summer at the family 4th of July picnic, I had brought the two most recent chapters of my current book for those who are acting as reviewers for me to read. Mrs. J. up to this point had shown no interest in my book and expressed she didn’t find the particular style or genre I used to her taste although she had never truly read any of my material. Her assumption was that I wrote only porn or satanic works. Mrs. J. presents herself as a devotee of Christian doctrine, who even went to college to get a degree in ministry and some diploma for teaching handicapped children. But she doesn’t practice what she preaches. She came by this assumption by reading a snippet of a D&D role play session I once GM’ed and showed to my sister.

Any way, my brother asked if I could give him a copy of what I had written so far so that he could see just what the rest of the family was talking about. I had printed up the first 6 chapters in preparation to send to the publisher for review and gave it to him. I requested he not damage or write on the pages and please return them by the end of the week because I needed to send them off to the publishers soon. He was careful with it but had been transferred to a new work schedule and district in his job, so was unable to catch me awake or at home. He left my manuscript with my Mother. His wife decided to borrow it to read in the mean time without asking. A couple of days later when it was discovered missing, she called telling me she had taken it from my mother’s house. After repeated requests by me for its return, she kept it making excuses why she hadn’t finished reading it. I don’t trust her and she kept making comments about how she would change this or that in my story if it were hers to make it better that bothered me. Things that would change the entire story plot or were just pure lame or cliché.

Then just before Thanksgiving I asked her to return my manuscript again because she said she had finished reading it at last and it had inspired her to write her own book. She then told me she wanted to point out several areas on my story where I needed grammar or basic structure repairs made, because she had more experienced writing training in her ministry work and had taken better English classes during college than I had. I was amazed because I had my several college graduated reviewers go over these 6 chapters with a fine toothed comb for errors of any kind, and made corrections at least 4 times before everyone agreed it was acceptable. I told her I would come get it and she could point out the problem areas to me so I could make corrections. When I got there all she had was the first 6 pages ready, which she had scribbled all over and changed practically every single line and phrase, inserting worn out clichés and overly wordy descriptions. The dialogue she wanted me to change to was dry, stale and so unbelievable I just looked at it and told her I’d give her suggestions consideration. I then asked for the rest of the story pages and she told me that Josh must have accidentally picked them up with his homework and took them to school with him. Then she promised to have him return them to me later that day.

I ran into my brother last week and told him about all that had been going on and asked why she had not returned it already. He was confused and told me he would straighten it out. Two day ago he dropped in to visit my parents and they both asked him about my manuscript because they both knew I was worried about it and he blew a fuse over his wife lying to him. She had told him she had given it back to me months ago. So, he went home and had it out with her and made her call me and arrange to have it returned. I finally got my manuscript back today.

It seems my fears were well grounded; she was attempting to use what she had of my story and copy major portions of it to make her own version and call it her story. She had used over half of the other pages to make notes to herself on about what she wanted to leave unchanged and what she needed to revise and how. She even had the name of a publisher lined up and typed on top of the last page. But she was lacking the parts that tied all the different elements together and the climax. Ehehhe. I never gave away any of that, I thank the gods for GMing all those years, Ehhehe. She was stuck and couldn’t finish it without the remaining 7 chapters and the ending. My brother explained that by pretending she wanted to help telling how I needed to make corrections, she hoped I would open up and give the parts away she needed to finish the story before I did. She thought she would turn her version in and make a ton of money on it to keep for herself. Silly bitch of a sister-in-law.

Anyway, I’ve revised the first 6 chapter since she had access to it and added a few chapters to the ending making it a much better piece. I hope to have it all ready soon for the publishers, before something else happens. Man this sort of crap gives me major headaches.

Your angst tastes like...
Black Licorice

Unique and difficult to place, your angst finds its source in something you keep hidden. You have something serious and possibly traumatic, but you try to hide it from everyone and just tell them to ignore you when you seem troubled, that everything's really OK. You might think that you have good reasons for not telling people, and some of them may in fact be true, but most likely a lifetime of keeping your secrets has led to a resolution fortified by rationalization that nobody else can shake simply because you never give them a chance. Ask yourself if it would really be that horrible to open up to others; nobody says you have to do it all at once, even. But you should at least try getting out of your shell a little. It's not healthy to internalize everything and conceal it. Anyway, if people really care for you, and they probably do, then they'll be loving and supportive regardless of any reason to the contrary.

We have been vindicated!! [May. 4th, 2004|06:11 am]

[Current Mood |amusedamused]
[Current Music |Kenny Chesney--I Remember]

Well the old adages, “All things come to he who waits” and “time can make wise men of fools” has been proven right again. When we first gathered together to form Epiloguerant for artists to talk through their grievances, we were called fools, whiners over sour grapes, childish, traitors and liars by a steady parade of the Epilogue Defense Patrol. Every single issue we raised was met with staunch heated rebuttal that we were being over sensitive, fabricating, or worse purposefully misleading the public with slanderous statements that Epilogue had serious problems. So strong were the EDP in their loyalty to Chad and his system that none could envision or believe our testaments of abuse.

Now imagine my amazed and triumphant surprise when recently I watched a minor issue turn into the exact examples that we had been accused of making up evolving upon the boards of Epilogue.

And who should be at the center of this shit storm but Mrs. Kay Allen herself who made the unfortunate mistake of questioning an editor’s decision of a picture in the WIP thread. All those involved in the thread have testified that no flaming or wrong doing had occurred but Chad felt it “might” turn out that way and first closed the thread then deleted it.

Since Chad is so fond of deleting threads I thought I'd give the gist of the following story in unedited quotes taken from their boards just in case they disappear.

Here is what Chad had to say after removing the thread titled “Anything goes”:

“Posted 04-27-2004 11:03 PM The original thread with this title was removed because it did nothing to help build up the community. for those of you who were following the thread, this is my reply*I am very honored that you all feel so strongly about this community and that having work accepted here really means something to you. I also know that you all appreciate the work the editors do in maintaining that atmosphere. The editors are the backbone of Epilogue and the site would not function without them. That is why we take public attacks or flames on them very seriously. It makes the whole community look unprofessional. Does that mean you have to agree with their decisions? Not at all. All I ask is that if you have a problem with the editors or a decision they have made, contact the staff or editors directly. It's that simple. In fact, we welome your feedback. While we can't give explanations for every rejected piece, we are willing to offer advice for rejected pieces that the WIP forum regulars can't help with. To help facilitate this, I will be adding a contact form that will go directly to the editors.
The bottom line is that we want to preserve the professionalism this site was founded on. We are attracting more artists and art directors every day. When they see posts bashing the core of our community, it makes us all losers.”

Well that set off a chain of reactions that resulted in every issue we presented being brought to the light again and vocally defended, not refuted, by several of the people who were once the loudest members of the EDP amongst our previous nay-sayers. Why this reversal you ask? Because at last they were seeing the light of truth in our words for it was occurring to one of their own and any who defended her.

Comments recently made by Kallen at Epi:

“For someone claiming to value feedback the editors/moderators sure seem to have a nasty habit of deleting or locking any thread or comment that even remotely weighs against them. It is like fighting a brush fire by throwing gasoline on it. There was never any insult intended to any of the editors nor were my comments flaming or disrespectful, but the heavy handed actions taken against them have fanned the sparks and caused something to erupt that should have never started.”

“Is epilogue now a community for 'yes men' only and all others need not waste their time trying to get a post through because it will just be removed? There is a big difference between a little criticism and comments intended only to cause injury and insult. I believe it was you and not I who crossed the line and made my comments into something they were not and this trend you feel you are making towards 'professionalism' is becoming rather disturbing.”

Chad had this to say in return:

“What is all this? You are making a lot of assumptions and taking things WAY out of proportion. Nobody is attacking you or singling you out. If asking you nicely to follow the rules we expect everyone to follow is being heavy-handed, than I suppose we are guilty. But it seems there is something else behind all this.”

Kallen:

” Well when you post to someone in PM and the reply is "Sorry you feel this way, but there doesn't seem to be anything further I can say at this point." That isn't exactly a reply to a concern. So no I do not believe that anything can be said to you all in private. I was chastised...ridiculed and deleted in public yet I am not allowed to voice my concerns for this behavior or speak my mind on the subject in public.
Yet in private I am dismissed. I am not breaking any of the posted guidelines yet I am deleted that hardly seems professional.”

“Sorry...when someone is reprimanded for speaking an opinion and only saying "Bad Call" and "Nitpicky guys" in a nice conversational way and the editor tells you that you broke guidelines and then a valid thread is closed because you dared to disagree with an editor. There is something very wrong here.”

When a Chad supporter voiced the mantra of emailing and PM’ing the editors as a simple solution that should have been taken, Kallen had this to say:

”I did voice those concerns and they were not discussed they were dismissed. In PM they were dismissed again.”

“Am I suppose to believe that I will be treated fairly now? That this is a nice open friendly forum where feedback is allowed. I am not mad....I think if I look at my feelings closely they resemble hurt and disappointment.
I obviously thought that Epilogue was something it is not.”

Another member agreeing with Kallen was quoted by Chad with further comments by him regarding her support of the issues raised:

“quote: ”I think its (Epilogue) forgetting the humble days when every member, pro or not could speak their mind as long as it wasnt offensive to others and made us see things diffrently.”

I just don't see that 'over moderation' is happening on any kind of scale to generate the kind of reaction that it is. This is being blown so far out of proportion it's silly. We have taken a more active moderation role in the past months, but after some of the trolls and stalkers we've experienced recently, can you blame us for being a little over-cautious? When it appears a conversation is starting to tank, we close it to prevent an all out flame war (which has happened before on more than one occasion). At the end of the day, all we are trying to do is just keep things friendly.
I agree we probably shouldn't have removed some of threads we have, but let's take a step back and realize that it's not something that happens every day. In reality, we only close a small handful of threads and actually delete just a fraction of those. I also think it's important to note that the forum moderators (not editors) handle the locking/deleting of threads.”
“In an effort to get things back to normal and focus on creating art again, I would like to apologize to Kay, and others, for this misunderstanding and any ill-will it has caused. We do value your feedback and don't want you to feel like you're going to be persecuted for having a differing opinion. Epi was built around your feeback, and still is! However, when we were smaller, it wasn't a problem to handle the more 'touchy' issues in the public eye. But with a growing community, we all have to be just a little more mindful of what we say and how we say it. It's just so easy to read things incorrectly and to get the wrong tone of a person's post (as evidenced by this situation).”

I have one thing to say about this regarding Mr. Chad’s kind of tongue in cheek apology. “Don’t play that game with us and don’t give us that smile. You’re just messing with us. That isn’t even a real smile, it’s just a face full of teeth messing with our minds.”

Did this apology solve the problems brought up? No, for they will continue to encourage and perform censorship because Chad and others like him at Epilogue refuse to admit it is wrong. Did it put the thread back? No, those words are lost now so that they may not inspire others to think outside the box. Did it explain what reasons he took these actions? Yes, for censorship for our own good and the good name of Epilogue’s professionalism. To keep us or others from seeing there are problems and thinking of Epilogue as imperfect or in error in some way.

There were others who defended Kallen with the following comments:

(1) “Having read all the posts that lead up to this, I'm a bit concerned here, I didn't see Kay be rude, hateful or disrepectful in any way shape or form. She should be allowed to speak her mind and address that issues that bother her. The editors and mods shouldn't brush her comments off like nothing, Kays helped alot of people get a gallery here, by helping them in the wip thread. I being one of them, I tried inviting Simon Bisley here.
Sadly enough he read the threads that lead up tot this one and he's respone was. " Hell if a person can't speak their mind there, why the hell would I want to go there. I'm staying put here. "Meaning if your not insulting anyone and not starting a flame war. Why on earth should the mods, and editor treat you like you did so?”


(2) I'm almost afraid to post in here.
I think this discussion can boil down to something. Obviously Epilogue artists and future artists have a concern. It has to do with the relatively few Editors that view (and decide the fate of) the artwork that is submitted. Many, many times the Editors opinions are called into question. It is frequent enough to warrent mention. They are prevalent in the WIP forum especially. I think the fact that the identities of the editors is known can perhaps be an issue. Perhaps the length of time they have held their positions. Perhaps something else.

Despite the fact that it was pointed out how true professionals in the field felt about censorship, Chad’s replies with these comments:

“Well, of course. People don't like being rejected. I imagine the Editors' opinions are questioned with each and every rejection.
Switching out the Editor's wouldn't change anything other than the scenery. We have a very talented group of devoted artists jurying the submissions. What else can we ask for?
I think a big part of the problem would be solved if we could convince people not to take rejections personally or even so seriously. When you sign up for an Epilogue gallery, you are putting yourself in a position where there is the possibility that not everything you submit is going to be approved. It's not the end of the world if you get a piece rejected.
If there was an easy answer, there would be tons of Epilogues out there.”

Thus revealing his true agenda and feelings for the average Epi member but Kallen again had to reply to his insensitivity :

“That line by Erika is the whole point I was trying to make. Fear of restriction on what you might say, how it will be taken by staff. It crosses peoples mind that if they speak their mind and it isn't all brown nosed... it might effect the judging of their next work. That is a terrible power to have over people. Walking on eggshells because God forbid you offend an editor.”

“You are hurt because your baby was rejected. Art is creation...it is love. It is damn important to the artist. So when it is told it isn't good enough. You seek comfort and advice and a place to vent a bit with your fellow artists.
That is what an open forum is for. Speaking your mind.”


”So if an editor comes into a thread and starts throwing their weight around and saying...Take it to private...we don't want you to talk publically...treats you like you have no value...has you shut down. Pulls out some obscure forum rule that shouldn't be there in the first place as justification for you being sent to the corner that is being a Bully.
Why you may ask? Because that editor has the knock out punch. You think that if you don't do what that editor says that the next time your work comes before them they are going to pull out the magnifying glass on you and reject your work. There is no perfect work. Any work can be rejected for one of those drop down menu reasons. Editors are human.”


“You can't have it two ways. You can't say to people to come to the forum to express their concern over a rejection and get help and then when they do tell them to take it to private because you don't like what they said.
The artist has to take it on the Chin...but the staff and editors can't? So anyway...that power that you have over the artists here shouldn't be thrown around. Not even remotely. If anyone should walk on eggshells it should be those in power.”


Further discussion revolved around the rejecting of pieces that were seen in the WIP thread and no one trying to help the artist could figure out what was wrong with them while others with many obvious flaws and lesser quality were accepted. Then McF joined in and made these words of wisdom.

“When you say "good pieces", and "quality" we all know those are just YOUR subjective judgements. So if you say we reject a picture that shouldnt be, it means we just disagree on what "good" pieces are. No jury in the world is going to make everyone happy, because everyone thinks differently about every picture - some say its good, some say its not. No matter how big the staff/editors/jury will be, no matter how hidden or how varied or flexible or changing, there IS NO WAY TO PLEASE EVERYONE with a jury system. But it IS the ONLY way to keep quality standards high.
And I would like to note that we do NOT reject pieces without reason! If the reason is not obvious to anyone though, how can you blame us for it? You can always use the WIP forum to ask opinion of the fellow artists, an no posts are deleted because you say "this was rejected and I dont see why/disagree"! “

Now I don’t know but my thinking is, if no one finds an obvious flaw in a work of art, not even the mods or editors…What is the purpose and reason for rejection if not a subjective and personal dislike by the editor who rejected it.

Again Kallen was quick to rebut Mr. McF with some very revealing comments that reflected views voiced here in this forum and which were called lies and over-reactions.:

“Rafal...there are only three editors that you can email for some help and possible get an answer. Three editors that are even seen in the WIP. And those editors are not seen that often. Only those of us who are active in Epilogue a lot even know who those three editors are.
Because you are all hiding on who rejected the work you don't know if one of those 3 active in public editors is the one that rejected you.
Personally I think it was a bad call to make who the editor is that rejected you hidden. I understand why you do it of course...but I still think it looks pretty creepy.”

“If you guys are now going to help people in private fix their work then you need to direct them to the correct editor.
Because like you say...art is subjective.
I doubt if all the editors see the same things. Especially if it is a close call rejection.
The WIP was set up because the editors are volunteers and busy people and can't answer all their emails and are afraid of flame. That was all discussed.”

”You are told not to email the editor but to take it to WIP...and of course since you don't know who rejected you...You just about have to do that.
So are we now reversing that?
Are you three editors going to take on all the emails now? Are you going to get the editors that don't participate in the forum active? Seems to me if you don't then you three are going to be overwhelmed.”

“So the way I see it...you are going to have to round up all the editors and make them public folks and accessable to the artists or you need to leave a good thing alone...if it ain't broke don't fix it.”


The following are some comments from the EDP who stepped up to make some very amusing and note worthy comments following Kallen's final post that I think sums up the general feeling of those in charge at Epi and their groupies.:


“Kay, i honestly didn't think that by asking you to respect the forum rules that you were being treated heavy handed and was a little shocked to see your reaction. You usually seem so much more level headed than that, and i was quite taken aback by your responses. This thread is even more shocking to me since you are normally a strong supporter of editors judments. You've done a complete 180 and now sound like the "kiddies" you always chide for being indignant about a rejection. You constantly tell us to trust the eyes of others, and now you are doing the exact opposite, and worse, have gotten angry about being called on it.”

”Be careful what you wish for Kay, you might actually get it.
Do you REALLY want an "anything goes" thread where the entire membership responds with their honest, unfiltered opinions on this particilar diatribe of yours?...or is it just umbridge that a thread that you happened to have been vocal in was pulled by people, who it should be pointed out, still do this thing on a volunteer basis, and didnt want the trouble they saw coming from it.
Remember, it works both ways. If memory serves, the last time you were involved in a thread where some people spouted off their "anything goes, honest, unfiltered opinions in your direction, it resulted in you boycotting the W.I.P forum.”

On another thread I found this very interesting conversation and so I am including it also:

“Forum Apprentice
posted 03-12-2004 12:47 PM
Oh Kay, I know being accepted at Epi isn't a truly accurate measurement of a persons worth as an artist. That was just a joke. I notice most art at Epi tends to lean towards the realistic; there are lot's of respected artists that would probably never have a gallery here. Van Gogh would get "blurry/unrefined," Picasso needs anatomy work, etc.”

Socar MYLES
Actually, Van Gogh and Picasso WOULD get rejected from Epilogue, but not for technical reasons. They would get slapped with the whole "Not fantasy/sci-fi/anime in theme" deal. Although a lot of Van Gogh's work would probably get in anyway--things like "Starry Night" and "Night Cafe" would fit just fine in the Horror category.

I found this quote from an old comment posted on the Epiloguerant boards by one of the newest members of Epi to join the ranks of the whiners/losers and troublemakers'and feel it expresses my feelings toward Epi and all this right now.:

”This looks like a pity party to me.
I think you all would be better off if you didn't waller in it. And just got to work on your art.”

Ah yes, so nice to be proven right for a change isn’t it? Now it sounds like to me Chad and the EDP are the ones having the pity party because we have taken the steps to open the eyes of many to the problems that exist in their perfect world. So Mrs. Kallen and those others who have recently seen the light of truth I would like to share these parting thoughts with you. This is something a wise old man once told me that I have found to be very true. He said, “We don’t choose the things we believe in, they choose us.” I also like to keep this quote in mind, “What is a man without hands? Is it the hands or the man that creates the art?”

Lillith
You are Lilith. Lillith represented childbirth,
sensuality and power. The legends of her
rebellion may cast her as the first feminist,
and as the first wife, the stories of her
decisiveness and her maternal power are intense
ones. Even though many see her as a demon of
her own making, Lillith also seems to represent
the acceptance of the self-truth, no matter
what its cost. She was sometimes seen depicted
with symbolic animals of royalty and wisdom.
