Scot Snow, A Few Days Later.

The post about Scot Snow's bullshit has brought a lot of local scene traffic through the blog. For five minutes, it's a talking point.

In case any of you are curious, I've not heard from Snow. It's been all empty on that front. As to what that means, I've no idea. It could be that he's simply going to lie low and wait for it to pass. I'm one guy with a blog, after all, and it'll pass with enough time. Indeed, this can't be the first time Snow has been caught out. I remember him in the late nineties on the Warren Ellis Forum (WEF), spewing the same garbage back then. The only reason his name sticks is because of the Australian connection, but he's still known in the comic industry. Do a search and you'll see people like Andrew Dabb and Steven Grant talking about his self released album.

The thing is, this can pass over. Snow can come back later with smaller lies that skirt his truth and continue in the same way he always has. It shouldn't happen, but lets face it here, it can.

So, if you've got a blog out there and you're connected to the local scene and you're as fucking offended as I am by the existence of Snow's fake reputation, then link the entry. Spread it round. Spread it so that Snow can't walk into a bar in the empty outback parts of Australia without someone backwater, incest spawned bastard coming up to him and saying, "Hey, you're that fucking liar Scot Snow, right? Get the fuck outta my bar."

Also, lastly, the point was raised by Grant Watson (angriest) in the reply section that people were leaving anonymous posts and slagging off Snow. He's right: it lacks class. If you leave a post and you've no livejournal, sign your name. From now on, all nameless posts regarding Scot Snow will be deleted. I understand if you don't want to be public in your hatred for what he has been doing, especially if you know/like him personally, but empty voices have no weight. That's exactly what allowed Snow to keep this shit up for so long.

Now you must mean either Roper River/Bar or Halls Creek.

As I am far removed from the situation, i'll keep my comments vague and childish. heh

BTW I read your short story on that website you had posted in a journal entry, and thought it was fantastic. Thankyou for sharing, I look forward to future entries.

yeah, this whole thing is a local spec fic scene thing, so it's probably best just to keep out of it so you don't cop any flak. if any comes, it'll be for me, and not others who got caught up in what i said, then.

but i'm glad you liked the story, man. there'll be another appearing around the end of the month.

Most definately. Though, from an outsiders point of view, it looks as though you are covering all the bases adequately.

Look forward to the new story.

time will tell, i guess, but when it comes down to this. i'm not particularly worried. i find this kind of shit offensive and i won't tolerate it.

And so you shouldn't. I wouldn't either, if it was relative to something I am passionate about on an everyday basis. Especially if it put others hard work down, by demeaning them through personal lies of grandness.

Anyways, go forth and seek, young man. Time is fate and future.

Done, with much trepidation and much internal debate. I'm not so connected to the scene but I know people in WA who are, and I know they read my lj.

After discussing the question of defamation with my newspaper affiliated bf, I took out references to Scot Snow and links to his journal. It feels a bit gutless, but I've linked to your posts and hope that people will be curious enough to read more.

that's fair enough. i'm sure if people are curious, they'll come by and see for themselves. anyhow, i've seen your post, and it looks fine to me. you've done more than you needed.

scot's snowjob
Hey there...it's Lynda, posing as an 'anonymous' poster, but immediately outing myself...
Just like to point out that out here in the wilds of Central Queensland, the correct response would be 'Get the fuck outta my PUB, mate'.
Sounds like Snow couldn't down a XXXX if his life depended on it anyway...what a chump.
Go hard son, and keep up the good fight.

See you at the PUB
Yes, well it is DR Lynda, though I never make anyone but subordinates use the title; good of you to remember.

And you're wrong; I don't glass men. I headbutt them.

See www.lyndahawryluk.com for a taste of the violence, the anger, the seething brutality...I WILL get that blog one day...the world awaits with fear and loathing, to co-opt from a late great...

Are you the firebrand I saw making a real impression at the Eureka Bar at Woodford this year?
