Comments: hey! you rule Sloth! I`m an norwegian anarchist that just read your page! its makes sence, and marx was a good man! rotten would never had been a president, for people are obbcest with power, and if you become the president of the us you don`t just throw it away! I mayby would, cuz I don`t give a fuck! yeah, it would be great to have lots of mony and control over the world, but thats not the way is should be! Sorry my english isnt so good, but you sure understand! But I don`t think that the internet is anarchy, cuz some of the sites I`ve been to, some pop up`s and shit, that totaly fucks up my computer... I could have many years in jail for that! But, I think some rules are good, like its not leagal to rape, to do child pornd and shit like that! but, the punishment is wrong! do to other wath they`v done you! I think thats the only tule we need besides the natural human rules! yeah! good day!

wanted to compliment you on your abilities. your writing employs such an efficacious voice within this sort of charasmatic/latent surroundings. im a writer, i know content is dictated by circumstance, experience, blah blah blah.... but were living in a generation of shapeless eyes, we're in such a state of conscious inertia its just refreshing to know all the smart ones haven't all died.

Comments: i love your site, i accually think it was this site that really inspired to be a more well read person instead of just drinking beer and being a fool ALL the time. Anyways, the reason i am really writing is because i want to know how you manage living in Europe as an American. I mean, did you get citizenship some how? Also, how do you manage to make money there? The reason I ask is because i live in America and hope to leave as soon as possible....after college most likely.

Comments: OMG! You HAVE to finish writing this story. It is too good to stop. It would be so great if you made a series. Maybe like, the next 10 chapters or something could be about one of his friends back on Planet Ravulon. A sort of Back and Forth series. I REALLY hope you take my advice. THANX!!!

Comments: What a joke. Elders was forced out because she wanted to have kids, kindergarten kids, sit in a circle and masturbate each other. Like a true liberal you lie about the facts. And why on earth do we need to teach kids how to masturbate just so they can put on a condom the correct way? Why not teach them "Hey, don't have sex until you're married, and if you can't do that, then at least wait until you're a legal adult". Because abortionists are making a killing (literally) , making money hand over fist. "Education" has been going on for centuries. It's only when the liberals took a firm hold on our schools did things go wrong. You need to get your facts straight...oh wait. You'd rather lie than tell the truth. Never mind.

Dr. Elders was too good for this country.

We are cursed with hypocritical right-wingers that fornicate with their secretaries, steal the company assets and preach morality.

I think the underlying problem is that ejaculations inside a woman "prove" manhood, while the same by self-stimulation is shameful, because it means you couldn't persuade (or force) a woman to submit.

I'm retired now and have given up trying to change the world, but I'm not too old to salute Dr. Elders -- a modern saint.

Comments: I've been checking out your website off and on for a couple of years now. First, I must give you props for putting all this out there. Gotta say though, it seems that you are bound by your appetitive desires. Can you not see past your cravings for sex and drugs? Why don't you take a moment to feel real pain and write about it, rather than numbing anything you don't like the feeling of, and then giving a profanity laden account of your trip into a moral vaccum.

It comes accross quite clearly that you have issues with just about everything - most predominantly american culture. Ahhh yes, the european life is so desirable. Why don't you take a moment to educate yourself and evaluate their culture - one in which anti semetism is growing again in just over 55 years after the holocaust ended. Is this something you think american's should strive too emulate? Americans "elected" George W, but look at Europe Union, who in this past year has had a number of member countries !

show growing support for extreme right wing political leaders. For someone with a liberal arts background this should be of keen interest to you. History is complex and let's not kid ourselves, no one is innocent. You also seem to have a preoccupation with people that are obese...were you a fat child? Where does the hate come from? How is their over-indulgence differ from your use of copious amounts of drugs and alcohol? Don't bother spouting any bs about drugs enhancing your mental state - judging by what I've read this is far from the case.

You obviously have talent - let's see you use it.

Comments: I love your writing. Can you give me your opinion on what you think about my poem. No bullshit, strait truth please.

"Melting Soul"

Puzzling character,
Subdued by unobvious existence.
Straying away from plastic subsistence.

Every emotion is obtained,
Accept love is desired ,
But one wanted can’t be acquired.

Heart broken day to day,
Loving feelings stuck in the brain.
Drilled the soul,
Exceeding all collected gold.

Must teach to forget,
It’s becoming a living threat.

Can’t learn to love another,
What a phuking bother.

Comments: Okay so I click on the Read Us link and at the top of the poem list is "Druggy Slutty Girls". You think you're an artist but your source of inspiration is lacking. Your attitudes towards drugs and sex are just fragments of another time before ex-girlfriends could call on the phone crying AIDS. You preach ecstasy like it's some kind of panacea. Your lives sound interesting and stimulating, get over the drug addiction and find some real beauty in the world. Look within and get off your rich boy asses and do something real for once. The potential is there; don't let vices cloud the dream.

i know you've probably heard it plenty of times but you're writing is really fucking good. i was really excited when i first heard of the towers destruction. i thought 'yes, finally someones fuckin done it' .i thought it was some extremists finally bringing about change in america.

war, the very concept made me call up ex girlfriends for a fuck cause i began thinking we might be dead the next day. in a couple of weeks i completely forgot to make the most of my life and started abusing people that care about me and sitting doing nothing. i'm still very doubtful about change. you can't change the world only yourself. i always fall back into my patterned disenchanted mundane existence.

a revolution is not political it is sexual. sexuality is so often repressed so that we can never come to terms with ourselves pschologically. once we come to terms with our sexuality we discover shit about ourselves. hopefully enough to discover and come to terms with ourselves. then we can change those around us by helping them come to terms with themselves. hopefully that will pry open their eyes enough for them to see what we could be doing.

Ian Browns Website has us 'banded' from using swear words - what are they like eh?

Anyway - good site - loads of filth, erotic stories that get ya going & then depress ya out to bits. Loads of stories of being mad out of the head & even more mad pictures of people 'being' out of the game!!!

Hi (two-toed or three?) Sloth,

Living in different places and experiencing different cultures and
subcultures forces you to be more open-minded. It's what everybody needs. And it's fun. I'm a military brat and I've seen some of the world: the U.S., parts of Europe, and the Virgin Islands. Living in Germany was interesting... such as being forced to stay indoors during the wet months for fear of acid rain (the Chernobyl explosion)...might also explain some peculiarities...

Not all folks become more conservative as they get older. Some do but it's just easy to say. People seem to get disenchanted as they age. I think radical change is still possible.

To read list:

Joyce Cary.....The Horse's Mouth
Tibor Fischer...The Thought Gang
Henry Miller....Tropic of Capricorn

Thanks. Sacramento's a nice place to say you've been, but it's serving it's purpose. People tend to be overly-apologetic here, yet quick to sue. Have you been having fun with cockney rhyming slang? Apples and pears=stairs, flute=suit, jam-jar=car... Enjoy your travels! There's no telling what you'll get into

i'v been dropping in on this site for a bit. i think its refreshing and
inspiring, i agree with alot your ideas about hedonism. i too live on the hill, i'm a student here. i thought that "sex starts in the mind" was a really beautiful way of articulating your mood since sept 11. i've felt sort of meloncholy and just an eery awareness of death, even when i'm content and laughing or having sweet cuddly sex in a warm house on a cold day. i cant stop thinking about the reasons america generates so much hatred, and how none of us are really americans. i started to write something political and anti-patriot then i got paranoid about being put on some cia list. anyhow, i just wanted to say good show- your writing is improving and you so deserve to be published.

I read your latest posts and then I read your fan mail and realized that you are doing something quite new and original. It is an artistic endeavor that may or may not ever be critically or finacially appreciated. That would be a loss, but . . .

You guys are doing something unique through the net. You are the characters people always wanted to meet. Now they can. I know you want to get published. I know not making money from what you love to do is not idealistic. But you are doing something vastly important because of its originality. The phrase there's nothing new under the sun does not apply. You and Sloth and your friends are more real than characters in a Hemingway novel or Henry Miller's mind, and you are characters to your readers. Prior to the net, no one could access an author, so his work was important. That's all there was; he himself was irrelevant outside of his creation, but you are probably more important to your readers than your characters ever will be. Does that make sense and not insult? If you can find a way to market your internet experience or to put it into paper form; it will
sell -- but it would not be new and original -- because it would be static. Your art is your life and your presentation of it, and it is very very dynamic. It does not sell, but it is so much more than selling.

I really hope that you guys continue to explore your medium. I think your exploration is brilliant without meaning to be, which makes it even more so.

And here's a little poem just for you on the subject of ladies' men.

Electro Ladies’ Man

He’s plugged in and turned on
This mighty morphing power ranger
A real techno raver.

Pixy sticks, and pixels
A synthesized, ecsta sized surfer.

Searching for skin
Under his fingertips.

His typing is madness,
a start, a bump, a change of direction.
Neurosis in the pharmacy
Of words, swallowing the medicine
And spitting it back out.

A cad, plastic clad,
Writing to be more than being,

He is the electro ladies’ man;
A writer, an actor, a critic, a drunk
A revolving, evolving,
Activist of funk.

Please forgive my constant correspondence, but as a devoted reader I felt the desire to feed your ego.

I like your prose because you manage to be manic and mad like some of the great authors of our time, yet you have a romantic and open side to your writing so unlike the other male writers of today. You even write from the veiwpoint of a woman convincingly. What an achievement! You have a charming and unique understanding of young womanhood.

I also admire how you will not change your nom de plume. I think it is a beautiful name. Yet still I read your stories and wonder, does not a wider audience deserve to read your works?

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know I enjoyed your site. Based on your content/links, I think you might like my site as well. with original art, poetry/lyrics, music, photography, humor, opinion, creativity, and a healthy dose of insanity.

I certainly welcome any feedback you have on my site. If you like it, feel free to link to it... I can even provide a standard-sized banner if you need one for the link.

Anyway, good work on the site. I appreciate it.

Good site, I check it frequently and like lots of what I read there. There's no way to communicate the amount of respect due for putting Shaun William Ryder on the bus, but what about Bez? Anyway, I was looking at your links page, and is good, but for US folks, what about (I do not work for dancesafe)? They have test results etc. that are more relevant for the US than Nicholas Saunders' site has (although I owe N. Saunders for recurring dreams about having an indoor duck pond). Anyway, good job, right, and if you make enough money to live in comfort from this, let me know, and I'll get right on coming up with my own fun, fulfilling way to pay the bills.

Thanks again for being,

Hi, I just wanted to say that I love your writing, especially your piece on anarchy. I totally agree. I sacrifice 8 fucking hours a day to school because I basically have no other choice, and I see your articles as a ray of hope.

I dont know you or anything that your site has to do with. All i know is that I stumbled upon your story about Trevor and the pizza business and i fucking loved it!

I saw that is was to be continued and I was hoping that is the case. I sat at work and read the whole thing getting very little done. All I would like to know, is if it is indeed continued (not knowing how long its been there) and when might i expect some more chapters in this saga?

Keep it up man,

Shits great


Hello Matt,

I went and read on your site for an hour. Printed off some stuff. I wouldn't have stayed there an hour if you weren't about a million times better now than you were when I started reading your stuff. How long ago was that? A year? Must be two, because I hadn't started working in
Seattle back then.

I read through Girls' Night Out, Bourbon Street, lots of your poems. Read the Easiest Lay, which was cute, funny. You have a lot going on in Bourbon Street, fantastic descriptions, poignant observations.

Do you travel or do you make all this shit up? Almost every story is about a different part of the world. I have travelled no where to speak of, so I just stick to what I know. Can't conceive of Paris, even after studying French for a full four years.

Liked Slutty Drug Girls and the one about the Bartending Babe.

So what is your novel about? Did you work on is this weekend? Where are you working now?

Good job.

Comments: Fuck me, from a Belle & Sebastian links page I stumbled in here about 3am, an it's now 7.30am. Gonna miss my deadline for a Gram P archive piece, but this is good stuff, quite internationalist even, not like the usual patriotic, flag-wavin', peasant bombin' US of A at all. I scored a 90% in your test, but I'm damned sure some silly fucker's died while arsin' about on the heinous, hippy weed, but I'm not about to take issue about something as trivial. As far as bein' 'on the bus', you gotta get Nick Cave on, you gotta get Gram Parsons fuck me, you can't have a degenerate collective without the wayward genius of writer Alexander Trocchi being in the atmosphere in some shape or form. If you ain't familiar with this unique libertine of a man, I've got a piece on him on Alan Mcgee's new Poptones' website at so check 'im out! I'll get the literary endeavours of you guys in time, cos I got fingers in these sort of pies on this side of the pond, so keep up the good work. Not bad, not bloody bad at all.

Keep The Faith



I just wanted to be able to tell you how much I admire your stories, although sometimes the use of descriptive sexism is fluent thoughout your stories, I am a person that admires honesty, and you don't really leave anything out. Your stories turn me on, because I seem to like every little thing I read about you or that you have written and I likes it... You can write me back if you wanna or if you have the time it whould actually make my day, I am interested in what you have to say about stuff.

Hey - like your Space Cake story a lot. It seems you're a little TOO knowing about stashing drugs on trains!

Enjoyed reading 'Manwich' again too the other day - I don't think it's fair that you're sexy and talented AND funny. Good thing you're a fuck-up in other ways or you'd be intolerable.

Talk to you soon....

Do you realize--what am I saying? Of course you realize how difficult it is to find yippies. I don't know if I'm even that. What the fuck; to hell with the identity crisis shit. I know who I am, I just have trouble labeling myself. Anyway, enough of that. I found your page on Abbie Hoffman, and read what you wrote. Bloody well intriguing and real fucking depressing if you ask me. But if you're anything like me, (I haven't looked at your site enough to know much about you), you know that the underground isn't six feet under. Perhaps it was, for a while, but slowly, new life is breathing into it. Here's the punch, if it's a punch at all. I'm fifteen, going on sixteen in may. There's a new generation, for you. Maybe Abbie was thirty years too soon? Fucking pity he's dead, if you ask me. I realize this is a tad crude, tough shit, sorry if I'm offending you, but I think it's quite difficult to offend anyone who devotes a page or more to Abbie Hoffman. Anyway, I'm looking to revive the revolution if it hasn't been already. Hell, I'm sitting here stewing until I'm 18. Listening to consumer radio, watching consumer television, reading consumer news. It's like suffocation. Maybe I'm thirty years too late. What the hell, I'll give it a shot. Email me if you give a fuck.

Comments: Wow, I've been meaning to do this for a while. I love yr. site, it is by far my favorite site. My fanaticism borders occasionally on obsession. I would just like to say that I've been following this site for, what....about a year or so, maybe a little more and I love it even more everytime I show up here. I myself am a writer, and am touched by yr. prose. I recently read the V-Day story, and was moved. I was also recently in NYC and was recently dumped there, in all the same places, and ended up doing the same things. It was the perfect thing to read upon my un-triumphant return from the city that never sleeps -- and it's good to know that someone else got fucked up in NYC also. And to think.... I thought I was the only one. Humph. Anyway, the new look is good, and no matter who you get dumped by, just keep going and fuck 'em.

Comments: Your site has stimulated me to ask you a question I have been wanting to ask for a long time : namely, where can I find pictures (8 1/2" X 11", say) of Arthur Rimbaud, something that can be framed. I'd be so happy to know.

It would be wonderful if you had photos of him on your site. He's truly an extraordinary poet.

Dear MC,
Name's Andrew.I was never interested in pulp fiction until I saw the Tarintino film, so I got curious. I tried and I read a few stories.
Then I read your story "Valentines Day" and it blew my mind! It is so awesome.

People my age normally don't read stuff like this, im only 14, but I have a question I have to ask you. I am hoping to be a director some day, for films, and currently I write short films, and I direct them with my little DV camera. I was wondering if it could be possible that you would let me make this into a movie, or base it on it. please email me at
