"You've Got (HATE) Mail"

I don't expect anyone to like me, or what I write for that matter. Frankly, when I do get a proverbial back pat, I'm surprised & appreciative. I get a mild kick when somebody says "good job, Grand$", or anything to that effect, like most people would. But, when I got this comment Sunday afternoon, it really caught me by surprise...

I realize you will not blog for much longer simply because you can not write, do not have much to say that is innovative and all of your posts are the same. I love my kids, I suck at life, zzzzzz. You're like a Berenstein Bear (no shots) that is your lane you clearly are not that smart, be honest, but you seem to love your kids and thats what you should stick to writing about. You should not write about anything else because you lack any real depth, corporate perspective, where are your references, all you have is lame insults. You're a watered down version of your favorite writers. Honestly I'm simply being truthful you're a hack, probably well intentoned but a hack.


As far as reading your blog ban me, because im going to pop in and point out your idiocy constantly.

[tony's note: i printed that as is...the entire exchange is located in the comments of 'Sean Combs Wears Prada!'.]


Correct me if I'm wrong y'all, but that's quite a bit of hatred from a complete stranger, right? Not only does he know an awful lot about my content for somebody who thinks I'm a hack, but why even pay me any mind if I suck that immensely [||]? It's like that gallon of spoiled milk in the fridge that stinks to Jesus' sandals, yet one continues to come back & open the refrigerator door, pick it up, open the jug, & inhale the moldy stench. Then amazingly, repeat the steps soon there after. Personally, I say throw the shit out the very first time you decide, "Nah, this shit's not good at all...".


The whole process of subjecting one's self to anything so blatantly unpleasant is kind of bizarre
to me, but to each his own, or whatever. As an adult, I habitually stay away from things I don't like:


Gucci Mane's music. Penny loafers. Getting hit by cars. Fat women porn. Police. Stray dogs. Liars. The list is virtually endless, & it's not that hard, or at least it shouldn't be. But, Mr. O brought it to my attention that I'm not that smart, so then again, maybe I just don't know any better.


In case it isn't clear, very few things I say here should be taken seriously. I ASSumed by the title, that my snarky opinions would be understood as just that, unless I denoted otherwise. &, I've come to realize that those who truly fux with RAWIFDP know as much. Those who come here looking for truth & actuality should probably call their birth father or read the newspaper instead. I attempt to "entertain" people (or apparently not), nothing more. & if I happen to touch a spot where some realness shines through, that's an accidental bonus that clearly comes from a place of good intention.


After awhile, I got to thinking to myself, "Wow, maybe I do suck, & all these folks who read my shit, sometimes going as far as to give me props & respect on other websites, are just as dumb as I am...", but then I couldn't contain my laughter any longer. The good thing about the "Mr. O"'s of the (internets) world, is that they reminded us who write for the people, that for every 3-4 niggas who enjoy what we do, there's 5-6 cats who wait for a reason to piss in our cereal. But see, I wear my umbrella hat at the breakfast table, so I'm good.


It's not like I get paid, & I concluded long ago that I'll never be famous, or even remotely close to extremely popular. So in essence, I write because I like to write. I started my blog because I was nursing my brain back to functionality after almost drinking myself to death last year. Somehow, people started catching wind of what I was doing, & for the most part, it's been all love ever since.

There's a lot of people who dislike me already, & none of them are anonymous. They know me personally. Hell, most of them I'm related to. So, to have one more human in the long line of "Fuck Tony-ites" is no skin off of my back. Nobody likes to be "hated", but it's a part of life, so it is what it will be.


& for the record, I'm always accepting emails at tonygrands@gmail.com.


Like I always say, as long as folks keep reading I'll keep writing. Thanks for rolling with your dude, y'all...

Man, Fuck this shit.

"You should not write about anything else because you lack any real depth, corporate perspective, where are your references, all you have is lame insults."

Corporate perspective? This right here is a fuckin blog, not an economics class you spineless pseudo-intellectual over-opinionated pussy. Mr O-face has obviously read enough to form an opinion and is clearly hurt deep in his vagina that the writing isn't up to his caliber. Don't like it? Don't read it. Add to the conversation, insert some insight, or fuck off. To call someone a "hack" from the comfort of anonymity is straight pussy. Jackass.

Technique said...

Fuck Mr.O

Keep doin your thing playa, if not for anything else at least to keep us "dumb" folks entertained.

Don said...

WTF is going on?

Mr.O why don't you express yourself over here? Seems like you may bring a good perspective to the forum instead of bashing it, which it seems like you are partaking in yet dislike within the industry.

Cats hate to unite, but love to hate.

Now I'm not gonna disrespect you Mr.O but it seems like you know better. Yes, it did get off on the wrong foot. The man is making dudes think beyond the normal propaganda with a twist of the funnies, and bringing people together that have no means or reason to be around each other.

Join in.

*Chuckles*

Why do people who choose to insult you ALWAYS hand you the loaded gun and keep the whiffle bat for themselves, Tony? LOL! Whether it's their lack of schooling, delusions of e-thug dominance, not knowing facts or just plain ol' being a 3rd testicle...they trip over themselves every single time! Ha!

Needless to say, another one bites the dust. Should've done more research, Mr. 0. Keep that good shit coming, Grands!

Kiana said...

Hate Mail? You made it!

You handled this well Grands.

Mr.O said...

I enjoy the spectacle of skill what can I say. Lets see you edited your response under the Sean Combs thread Tranny, technically I am picking on you but its cool, oh very nice you virtually made it look as if I was arguing with myself. Playing a victim is so, so, girly! I apprecate the drop though but next time come with it, state the truth do not carefully edit to make your point, its really no fun.

Its easy for an artful man who makes no coin, enjoys self deprecation, persuading himself and telling half tales but guess what there is no such thing as a good excuse, and you're a bitch!

Jamal7Mile said...

^^^What?!!!

Are you high? Re-read that shit and tell me that you're making ANY sense at all.

And "technically" you need to take up a new hobby. Hating on random bloggers has got to be the saddest shit I've ever seen. Try pussy, it's good, believe me. Just lay off the dust, man!

Worldstarhiphop.com

THAT'S the site you're looking for, Mr. 0.

Slick said...

What it do Grands, who is this punk trying to discredit your shit?

I know you might not know it but even cats in Africa read and enjoy your blog, I know it doesn't mean a lot but nigga you's international. If we respect you in a third world like Africa and read your ish daily, with all the prob's we have and shit, then know that you have something going on with this blogging stuff.

Am in Nairobi (Kenya), was introduced to your blog by a friend, we hip hop heads and we read your shit as much as we read Bol's ish in xxl. and we are not alone, though we dont always comment, we read this blog.

So dont let a bitch come up in your crib and disrespect you, we kill niggas like that up in this mo'fucker, run your mouth and lose your life. Mr. O, you gosta respect dude, give respect where its due.

Out

Mr. O you can't be serious. What is the point in reading this blog regularly if your only intentions are to be a hater? You might as well pick up some porn mags to satisfy your 'gaydom' because you have too much built up and a bunch of time to waste!! Blogging is an art and we all have our own perspectives. Comment, but don't be mad because you don't have the same skills. Idiocy runs rampant! Be careful out there.
Grand$ keep doing what you do baby! I'll keep reading.
