Kudos to my anonymous tipster, who alerted me to the fact that Nicky lost his “job” administering the Metal Mania page on Facebook. The Nickster himself publicly posted confirmation on his Twitter account:
Incroyable! Quelle horreur! Quelle est sa réaction? Alors quoi? Très bien.
Seriously? He was like “Really? Okay.” This is not the Nicky we have all come to know from his online persona of years past. Evidently, whichever uncle it was who moved in with them after Don’s death is doing one heck of a good job keeping Nicky in line. I don’t know how he does it, but a whole bunch of people appreciate it, from horror authors who make a living from their craft, right down to those us of who have merely crossed swords with the guy a decade or more ago, and have been in his crosshairs ever since.
I appreciate the break. It’s rather nice to post about something other than Nicky’s antics for a change. Alright, not tonight, but my last few entries had nothing to do with Nikita. I’ve been extremely busy with other things, which is why it took me a few days to get with the program long enough to even post this entry.
