This morning brings two new screeds from Mr. Pacione, both posted on his Blogspot. In general, they consist of his usual whining about being mistreated by the world. I find this line to be particularly amusing:
I challenge every jouranlist who is on that side to do an interview with me and with the results of that interview you don’t dehumanize me one bit.
Considering that his interview with a reporter from the Coal City Courant came across as snarky, and his interview with Matt Staggs made him look no better, Mr. Pacione has issued quite a challenge.
The Skullring.org interview made Pacione look worse than the one by his local weekly paper by its impartiality. There was also the fiasco of an interview with Larry Dagstine, who took down the interview and closed The Literary Bone after one issue as a result of the fallout.
Pacione refused to be interviewed by Andrew Crowe mere months ago. I suspect it was because he thought Crowe wouldn’t make him look good.
Yes, interviewing Pacione and making him look good is quite a challenge. As if that alone is not enough of a challenge, Mr. Pacione demands that it be uploaded to Associated Content. That is where Pacione uploaded his Cabbie “Homocide” story. How’s that for a Freudian slip?
Who will take on this challenge? Like all challenges issued by Pacione, it comes with rules issued by him. I can’t be the only one laughing. Traditionally, the one who is challenged sets the rules.
There is also this prize winning line:
Come on you motherfuckers — you know you want a dig into my mind.
If there were something between his ears besides lint, people might want to do that. As it is, there’s nothing worth examining in any depth.
This part is hilarious:
You want to piss away my respect, I want to see you assholes try. That is the one thing that keeps going with me respect.
Since when did Pacione ever have respect from anyone? With his attitude, I sincerely doubt he’ll ever achieve respect. And, unlike Rodney Dangerfield, he’s not even a comedian.
The Rusty Nail would love to interview Mr. Pacione, but of course it would have to be on my terms, with the interview uploaded here at my WordPress. Therefore, Pacione will refuse my offer.
Draw your own conclusions.
