Dear Marvin,

I've tried to fight the way I am, but I just can't hide it any longer - I like fluffy bunnies. How can I cure this terrible affliction?

Dear itokokokro,

There shouldn't be anything to worry about - I like fluffy bunnies as well. I find they go down beautifully when cooked rare with a few seasonal vegetables and a good merlot. Your impression that liking them is an "affliction" is most likely down to a bad chef.

Yours gastronomically,

Marvin

Dear Marvin,

I find myself gruesomely insulted by the insinuations of a terribly lame thread started recently in All Saints, presumably due to a new host's arrival. Essentially it's just another thread in the line of "Today I Consign To Hell..." or "I Don't Intend On Tolerating..."
My question is, I'm afraid this host might be a rather sensitive person deep inside and that I might hurt his feelings if I express this. I know he has a rather harsh shell, but I fear it's just a shell, covering nothing but a most fragile and tender, and somewhat naïve heart. What should I do? How can I turn this poor fellow the other cheek in a way that he'll still understand that this is beneath his level? How can I make him feel how much I do care for him and how much I've realized he needs care and comfort, not blame and blasphemy? How can I reach through to him?

Many thanks and lots of love,

// Sleepless in Sweden

Dear Chorizoer

I'm encouraged that you recognise these delusions for what they are. That's the first step to being cured, after all! You really must keep reminding yourself that circus hosts aren't big, or clever, or in any way important. You're the last-but-one rung of the importance ladder (just ahead of all those pathetic losers who aren't even hosts at all)!

I hope you can come to terms with the reality that this superiority complex is only in your head. If you can't then the only way to get rid of it is to amputate. I'll keep the scythe handy just in case.

Yours in true superiority,

Marvin

Dear Sheepless,

I know what you're talking about, really I do. And honestly, I used to feel the same way. But believe me, once you get to know Wodders you'll find that his rather harsh shell, far from concealing a most fragile, tender and somewhat naïve heart, conceals no more than a bitter and twisted mockery of the human soul.

He's almost as fabulously far gone as a Hellhost.

Your best bet is to stop trying to care. Harden your heart. Remove all sympathy and positive emotion from your being. Then, eventually, you too can become worthy of inclusion in the ranks of Hellions.

Yours infernally,

Marvin

Dear Blobby,

The problem here is simple: you're so fat you have mass whether the higgs boson exists or not, and you're so lazy you get taken over by continental drift.

You want a tip on how to lose weight? PUT DOWN THE FORK.

Dear Insecure in Some Northern Dive or Other,

Being part of the In Crowd is all about attitude and belief - specifically having the same attitude and beliefs as the other In Crowders.

It's something you've either got or you haven't. And babe, you have not. Learn to live with it is my best advice.

Yours excludingly,

Dear Launch Pad,

That's just sad. Really, really sad.

The first thing you need to do is clear your mind of all thought. Do this by focusing on the below dot for one hour*:

code:
                                       

.


Once your mind is completely clear, phone up a good friend to come over and bitch-slap some sense into you. Thinking about work on a holiday, indeed. Honestly [Roll Eyes] .

Yours disgustedly,

Marvin

I can't help but look at the respone to H&A day and think 'its not like the old days'. I remember the first H&A day like it was just yesterday. Then there was a proper In Crowd, not like today's young pretenders.

Can you recommend a remedy or am I going to die from the nostalgia of the violins inside my head?

Dear Marvin,

We once had hoards of fuckwits and loonies on the boards who would spout all sorts of nonsense about CO2 spontaneously seperating out of air and other equally silly notions. I would sit and patiently explain the truth to them, not so that they would learn (some hope) but so that others would see my intellectual superiority and be amazed.

But, we banned so many of them that I now find that the only people I can discuss things with are intelligent and thoughtful individuals who carefully assess the evidence and with wit and clarity demonstrate the flaws in the arguments presented by others. I find that I'm now unable to so clearly demonstrate my obvious superiority.

Just what am I to do?

Dear Ferrisjen,

The good old days just aren't what they were, are they? Kids today don't know they're even logged on, that's their problem. They're all too lazy and creatively bankrupt to have a good time like we did in the old days.

But the solution is obvious. Stop expecting the kids to do it all, and start some fun stuff going yourself. What's the matter, too lazy or creatively bankrupt to do it? Pah.

Yours nostalgically,

Marvin

Dear Alien Cressage,

Well, you're in a dilly of a pickle there, aren't you? You've banned and banned and banned until only the smart ones are left, and now you're having to have smart discussions with people who are more your equal.

While that really is your own damn fault, there are solutions. One is to reinstate the fuckwits and loonies, with all the attendant headaches. The other is to continue to ban and ban and ban until you, I and Wodders are the only ones left - Wodders so that you'll have someone to run intellectual rings round, and me so you'll have someone to whom you can demonstrate your superiority [Smile] .

Yours slightly-less-smartly,

Marvin

Dear sithsuzy,

The problem is that you're constrained by the narrow-minded dogmatic view of the Heavenly. A true Host must take a... wider view. Become one with the Hellish Side, and you will find the powers you seek. May the Fucks be with you.

Dear Sorblister,

Yes, Gerald and Sine were talented exponents of this genre, but you are quite right to recognise my inherent superiority.

Dear Banana Laddie,

Heavenly hand my ass. Are you quite sure you really want to be bad, because I think you're subconsciously sabotaging your own attempts at evil.

Which means you're just one more fluffy bunny. Fortunately I know just what to do - get together a carving knife, some seasonal veg and a nice merlot and pop round to my place. We'll have a "rare" old time, after which I promise you'll never have a worry again.

Dear Marvin,

It is past midnight and I have early lectures tomorrow morning, yet here I am, perusing the Ship. Every time I consider leaving to get some sleep, I spot yet more amusing products of Hosts & Admins day and am compelled to read further. Is it possible to remain a Shipmate without failing my degree?

Yours addictedly,

itokro

Dearest itty-bitty teeny-tiny student:

Since Marvin is doubtless asleep in the arms of Lethe (I think that's his Wife) I will take it upon myself to answer in loco Hostis, as it were.

You really expected to join the ship and study for a degree?

Delusions set in early, don't they?

Yours faithfully,
The Real Hellhost

The real hell host wouldn't sign his missives the real hell host becos his missives would carry the gravitas of the real hell host in every real hell hosty word. So, I might just point out that I haven't signed this pearl the real hell host and let you commoners draw your own conclusion.

dear Blooddrunk: at first it's so GRAND, isn't it? and you (and I) are getting all the good bits as temp H&A Day hosts. But when it's a daily grind of following shitloads of youtube links and reading dumbass screeds by people enamored by their own (false) belief in their brilliance, as well as fixing code because some people are too stupid to fart without assistance...

***breathe in, breath out...***

anyway.

count your lucky stars. temp hosting is sexy. regular hosting is hard work, and the pay sucks.

(she says while missing being part of the elite....*sigh*)

sincerely,
cometrocious, Retired Hellhost

Dear BloodyDrunk,

Good. Good. Feel the chaos flowing through you. You only have a limited time, so take it for all it's worth. The Circus Hosts can always put things right again afterwards...

Yours chaotically,

Dear itokokotheclownokro,

You poor sad fool. Pete was right - there is no hope. You are now one of us. Sleep is irrelevant. Resistance is futile.

Yours somnambulantly,

Dear Peat,

While we all know that your dearest wish is to be just like me in every way, I'm afraid it's just not to be. I'm not a naturally gregarious Host at the best of times, let alone when I'm having to read all these damned support threads every day. Go and get your own band of concerned supplicants - these ones are MINE [Devil]

Yours territorially,

Marvin

Dear Marvin

I have lots of work to do but find myself drawn irresistably to the Ship and other sundry websites of the genre I believe is known as "social networking".

How can I prevent myself from being distracted?
