Default Has P.net lost it's Punch?

Gosh and wow, it's been informative and educational at p.net lately with some fabulously balanced contributions on the legal, practical, theoretical and even etiquette issues of street performing but isn't it getting a little dull?

Let's put it this way, even the spammers in the Gigs section have given up on the porn, viagra et cetera and are now trying to sell us kitchen make-overs, bedroom furniture and real estate in Detroit.

I mean, really?!

Has Martin totally abandoned us for a site that pays mere money for his wit? Was p.net just a passing fancy of Jester's as his broken leg healed and RSPCA considered cruelty to reptile charges?

Has Dr Eric gone straight and Rachel gone drawing?

Have we heard the last of Taxi's verse and the Ramblings of Rumple
As my lousy poetry gets worse and remaining brain cells crumple?

These and other questions raced through my brain as I deleted another spam for "medical needs". This one mostly revolved around various mechanical devices from Zimmer frames to serious and curious prostheses. Viagra seems to be a little postscript at the bottom.

It must be part of the anti-spam software, replacing chosen words with the spamspamspam bit when it detects them, maybe to stop offensive stuff coming up. I just tested and it did the same to me. I've not noticed it before and worder why it doesn't do it to Viagra. I'm now wondering what other words it works on.

I've just found 3 more.

The spamspamspamspam thing appears repeatedly in spam posts in "Gigs"

Uh, sorry 'bout the Viagra promotions ... they have been following me everywhere since I refilled that script at the Winnipeg Fringe in '93.

P.S. Fuck Martin ... Fuck Taxi ... who needs 'em.

I didn't put the spam filter on for viagra in case anyone ever needed to have a discussion about erectile dysfunction. Some of the performers who post here are getting on in their years.

Ah, most thoughtful of you Jim.

I just hope p.net isn't following the flagging fortunes of the flutterby's flaccid phallus. Somebody has to stand up here.

you're about to get the chance... he should be landing on your shores with his flippers and goggles right about now.

I thought the call for stilt walkers... "you must own and be able to bring your own stilts for the audition. The audition space has low ceiling. " was one of the funnier things I've read here in awhile, which is a sad state of affairs. Tumbleweeds have been seen blowing through the site of late.

Thanks for the courtesy to us not-so-youngs, Jim.

And just for you, Robert.



There lives an old man from San Fran
whose uncanny companion from Japan
combines sorrow and sighs
in her mistriddled eyes;
cause he goes to the can in a pan.

Question your chalk has the same polarity as cement

Hey Peter (appropriate name, I might add),

Is that some sort of Australian Dick Joke?


P.S. Taxi ... we need the soil.

Hey so I'm named after my genitalia. Many our the male members here are named after other male members, John, Thomas, Dick, Peter, Willy and that's only a few in English. Some of us are named after what we do with our members, Jack, Roger and unfortunately, Harry.

Others are named after their personality, Kurt, Matt, Frank and Ernest.

Some too, Bob, are named after their actions, as they are washed up by the tide.

PS who mentioned Finkel?

Default Where's my subscription to "Retired from the Street" News?

Peter, I'd be thankful if you wouldn't use the J-word around here. Say it three times fast and you're sure to conjure him (and he's about as welcome as that freakin screaming beatbox sig).

There hasn't been enough going on around here for Martin to even score a point off of - now that's dull. But isn't that what happens every high season (this being so in the Nth hemisphere, January-February being same for you)?

Perhaps it's only Robert and I, in our dotage, and you on another insomniac tear, who have the time to hang about waiting to be entertained.

Butterfly Maybe this will bring back the magic...

I have always found Gazzo to be a far more original performer than Robert.

Default no original Gazzo

Gazzo's not original! Jim Challini taught him nearly every thing he does, as well as many others ! I know I was around when he was learning from Jim. Oh no there's little Gazzo's running around every where RUUUUUUUN!!!!!!!!!!

Love Thank You Jesus!

I have the honor of owning everything Gazzo has ever written ... his impressive book entitled "Phantoms of the Card Table" is absolutely superb. My only gripe was them giving a co-author credit to that hack David Britland.

Luckily, that didn't happen again on his other splendid publications.

I value my copy of his inconceivable book on heckler lines entitled "Read Between the Lines" almost as much as Danny Hustle values his copy of "Krowd Control", a publication that must have taken Gazzo years to properly research.

I, for one, would like to publicly thank Penguin books for buying the rights to these publications and giving Gazzo six figures and a mini cooper.

It does my heart good to see him reap a bit back from all that he has sown. Truly, I feel blessed to have known the thieving cunt for so many years.
