Martin Amis cock-cunts on 9/11

Martin Amis tells US mag Vice that 9/11 was "masculinity in a whole new form". I suppose the Twin Towers - though architecturally phallic - were in this instance a cunt metaphor degraded by the latest incarnations of cock, a Boeing 767-223ER (North Tower) and a Boeing 767-200 (South Tower). An interesting notion, though I should have thought the masculine destruction of things in war a commonplace: certainly 9/11 provided new visuals, a new scale to urban terrorism, with glamorous New York uncharacteristically cast as victim: but a whole new form beyond the obvious? I'll have to think about that. To me 9/11, beyond the tragedy, was a surprise casting, though in a whole new form from the likes of Matt Smith's for Doctor Who.

Why were you surprised darling? Don’t you find the vast majority of catastrophe films speak of how dreadful the destruction of New York would be? I think the terrorists chose NY because it has been fed into the masses through Hollywood that the end of New York would mean the end of the world as we know it and they wanted to tell us: “we can do it, so be afraid”. Remember the perception they have of us is that we live by what is in the movies.

oy vey and I say it again...Oy vey and la dee da..and yes, without New York there would be no culture in the United States..oh, did I say that?. and it is reality, so live with it...we will take our chances in the eminent likelihood of terrorists "trying" to scare New Yorkers. It's not going to happen though..there is more of a chance that a major earthquake will take out the whole state of WA..
yes, look it up ..it is built on a fault line, so I would be more inclined to take my chances in the subways of NY and dodging erratic driving taxis on 5th Avenue than the possibility of a bomb going off in Trump tower...
aren't there any other bloggers out there that want to take a stab at this posting?

It's all too complicated for me and Elvira has too much time on her hands. As for you Steph, nice pic.

Al-Qaeda terrorists are brainwashed to think this life has no value (including their own); consequently, they had no remorse over killing thousands of innocent people by blasting the jets they were flying into the towers, in order to make a statement to their declared enemy. We are brought up to cherish our lives; nevertheless, the passengers of flight UA 93 had no hesitation to bring down their plane to save the lives of other innocent people they had never met. I think it was clearly stated that morning of September 11 which group is more corageous.

Er, someone may want to take the time to spell out the answer to the deceased Mr. Hawtrey impostor, as she is bragging over how dimwitted she is; frankly I don’t think I will ever have that much time in my hands – not even in the afterlife.

As to New York being the ONLY cultural center in the whole of United States of America, I will leave it to residents of other big cities to respond to that, if they care, as personally, the attitude towards arts and culture in the little dinky town I have moved to would make Mayberry look like a metropolis and some times I almost forget how good things are elsewhere. Steph, I hope you don't make it a habit of talking that way of the rest of the USA; it’is very bad PR if you ever plan to show your work outside your town… (and your picture does look good).

Oopsy daisy, MA darling, these women and their free assaults are getting me to begin to enjoy behaving like a poltergeist. I need a séance.

All continental plates have fault lines (look that up). No doubt Ms Mastini (aka Dogberry), philanthropist that she is, is just hoping for the "eminent" demise of her family.

New York is just a cultural center, not the cultural center. Those of us in the middle might get on nicely without either end. Of course, the Yellowstone caldera might punch a hole in middle of North America. If that should happen I suspect a lot of New Yorkers are going to be wondering when the sun will come out again and where the hell their food will come from in the meantime. Puts culture in perspective, doesn't it?

PS. The picture is nice. I notice she always poses in that particular way, and it does something to minimize her very prominent nose. Well done to her.

...that is hilarious stuff..definitely someone has some very low self esteem issues or they wouldn't be coming after me... Ask anyone that knows me and they can tell you that my nose is not prominent or large; I just like that pose..my nose is cute as hell!..All my family has Italian noses..on both sides..the person that wrote this comment has never met me obviously..or has, and is jealous of my very high class (over 35k)septorhinoplasty!!
steph!
keep the comments coming..just demonstrates stupidity and down right mean spirited nonsense..

...Dogberry? I guess that is what you have to eat when you go foraging in the woods (must have found some "mushrooms"!)... having seances in the forest with the ghost of Thoreau lately?..
here's a suggestion..stay off the internet...you portray yourself as a total ass..no wonder you pen yourself as anonymous..

It is a shame that you are such a transparent fraud.

Dogberry is a character from Shakespeare. It's hardly an obscure reference and one you might have gotten if you'd ever read a play instead of Googling for quotes. It is quite an amusing coincidence, however, that you should mention asses. (Never mind, dear, you won't get the joke.)

Oh, and, Dogberry, I used to sign my posts, but, in your rampant paranoia, you accused me of lying about my own name. My Anonymous state is entirely your doing.

you are quite full of yourself..go try and badger someone else....If there's one thing I am not is a fraud..you must be very bored, lonely and homely to be so pathetic as to cry out for attention in this manner..we know who you are...
ciao

You will refuse to believe the truth because it trumps your feeble protests, but, in truth, you haven't the foggiest notion who I am. If you are going to whore yourself for the attention of MA's global readership, you mustn't expect love or respect, but you must anticipate that most -- likely all -- who partake of you will be complete strangers.

Way it goes, Dogberry.
