Ananda Osel/Joseph Osel: Article about a emerging genre of poetry. What does everyone think?

The funniest thing in all this is the time and energy some here lost in seeking information about the said Ananda Osel on Google and writing their mocking, virulent, never-ending blablablas. Though they could just ignore him/it.

Well, we tried just ignoring you, but that approach obviously didn't work very well because you're still here.

Seriously, isn't there a Wuthering Heights forum where you could go and be more appreciated? I'm sure they spend their time much more wisely than we do, and you could entertain them with your boring stories about France. Plus, you'll finally escape all the mocking, virulent, never-ending blablablas!

PS: And take all of your bouncing smiley faces with you.

...the style here and Bukowski's is too similar to call anything about it "new."
Yes, Osel's poetry is exactly like Bukowski's, so you're right. In fact, I would say that the sooner we crown Änanda Selah Ösel, Ananda Osel, A.S. Osel, et al, the NEW BUKOWSKI, the sooner we can live in a perfect world full of Osel's marvelous poetry, and make him the rich man he deserves to be.

[A.S. Osel is the former president of the Black American Student Association. Osel lives and writes in Seattle. He can be reached at ananda@ananda-osel.com.]

If you look him up, he is white/black also he is a master in the ultimate fighting circuit.

Former president of the Black American Student Association - now you're talking. That's an awesome accomplishment for a white suburban frat boy. It's like a Marshall Mathers movie up in heah!

The funniest thing in all this is the time and energy some here lost in seeking information about the said Ananda Osel on Google and writing their mocking, virulent, never-ending blablablas. Though they could just ignore him/it.

I'm confused - you say it's funny, yet I don't see any animated smileys. How can something be funny without half a dozen little bouncing faceballs punctuating it? Am I supposed to know that it's funny based on your words alone?

This forum is going to hell, I tell you.

Appreciate your friends
Thanks d gray.

I just heard on CNN that the great poet and political activist Ananda Selah Osel was shot and killed during a protest in Tehran. I think you guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

well, I heard Ananda Selah Osel faked his death in Tehran. he has gone into hiding and is planning to get plastic surgery and gain 138 pounds and infiltrate the elitist hierarchy of academic poetry. he'll lay low until he gets tenure (could take a dozen years, but Ananda Selah Osel is committed!) and then lay those Ivy League snobs out with his street wise free verse never before seen in poetry!

boy, I can't wait to see their faces. free verse no less! whew, rock their world, Ananda Selah Osel.

o, Ananda Selah Osel, you magnificent bastard....

Oh oh.
Best not get in his way, yo. Whether it's on paper or at the Abercrombie and Fitch.

wait. It IS a new genre of poetry: Frat boy poetry.

He's got what he wants, which is attention. This type of net.kook doesn't care if that attention is positive or negative. Though they almost always prefer negative, as it reinforces their delusions of martyrdom. "Look at the way they hate me. Their hate is proof that I am great."

But like others we have seen - and more of the same that we will see in the future - when you actually look, there's nothing there. Trying to point that out or trying to reason with someone so wrapped up in their delusion is pointless. You can say 'black' all day long and all they will hear is 'white.'

Ananda Osel's many conversations with himself sprinkled across the web are initially an entertaining diversion, but ultimately boring. Just another schoolboy Quixote tilting at windmills.

Ambreen - In this case, some Google researching was required to expose the hoax. People who try to sneak their poetry onto the web under fake names deserve to be called out and mocked. It's part of keeping a forum like this as honest as reasonably possible.

Under other circumstances though, I agree with your strategy to either ignore or delete.

[EDIT] Once again, I failed to see there was a Page 2 on this topic and I posted a reply that looks a little silly in its timing and placement. You can't acquire this awkwardness I tell ya' - you gotta be born with it.

Well, we tried just ignoring you,
Ignoring me by answering to my posts about Kate Bush and Beth Ditto ? You lack coherence, my dear "proud lesbian". :)

but that approach obviously didn't work very well because you're still here.
Yes, I'm still here, leaning toward this computer. For your greatest happiness. :)

Seriously, isn't there a Wuthering Heights forum where you could go and be more appreciated?
Why move when I'm already appreciated here ? :)

I like this place but if something disturbs me, I will express myself, no matter if I have you all against me. I'm not the kind of person who shuts up and follows, sorry. In this case, I was struck by the relentlessness and wickedness of some members. Was it really necessary to react like bullies in school playgrounds ?

He's got what he wants, which is attention.
He's won the game. That's tragicomic.

I'm confused - you say it's funny, yet I don't see any animated smileys.
You've probably eaten them but don't remember it because of you know what (that damned Alzheimer...don't worry, I'll keep the secret).

It's part of keeping a forum like this as honest as reasonably possible.
But is keeping the said honesty by resorting to aggression the solution ?

reading threads like this can be awkward, like watching flavor of love or the jerry springer show. it can also be enjoyable in the same way.

Ambreen;

We are not bullying this "guy":) We are pointing out his ruse.;) You will notice that we did not discuss the article that he sent us, but discussed the scam that is Ananda Osel. :)

He is trying to use this forum and others to advance his con.:D

We have pointed out the scam and are making sure that anyone that Googles his name sees this forum where he can be exposed.:)

I'm sure a white guy who is brave enough to be the president of the Black Students Association and a guy who is a master ultimate fighter champeen is not being bullied by a bunch of poetry readers.:D

I can tell Bill is writing to Ambreen.:D and Ambreen you are going to be okay.:)

But you guys were all so mean about it!

I know hard to believe that we would be mean to a person who comes into our house and takes a big shit in the middle of the living room, on our white carpet.

He tried to play us for fools and was called out on it. He treated us with no respect by playing a game.

It is not like we are being mean to anyone who came to us honestly.

Billy Mays can get shit out of a tan carpet, but not white.

At least that is what he says when he is yelling at me on the t.v.

Billy Mays is my hero. Now there's a motherfucker who can sell. Artemus Osage - or whatever the kid who started this thread is calling himself these days - could learn a proper pitch from the great Billy Mays.

If you are going to do anagrams, please use his full and proper name: Änanda Selah Ösel

she does la lanana

And what is "la lanana" ? It's what servicemen men pay extra for in the Philippines. Or humiliating acts of self-debasement performed by desperate poets in the U.S.. Same thing - different time zones.

You move like a giant, ancient fish...
Ananda and Osel are both Buddist names. Selah is Hebrew.

So I figure there are two Buddists and a Jew at college in Seattle, or wherever, getting high and lamenting that Courtney Love will never go down for killing Kurt.
Outraged, the conceive ASO as a weapon to fight the white/middle-aged/poetry establishment which we all know secretly controls the government and hence the judicial system.

They choose the only one of them with dark hair and eyes, make him over as a black activist and the rest is history. (check out the photo at Korean Times - man he's White!)

I suspect if you track his "poetry", you'll find the same stuff elsewhere attributed to a timid housewife in Akron or a political prisoner in Burma.

I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Right, but there's a difference between expressing yourself and insulting us. Don't try to spin this into into some kind of noble effort on your part. If you take a passive-aggressive stab at people when you "express yourself" like you did, you can expect to get a negative reaction. It's a pretty simple concept, really.
