To My Readers: Clutch Magazine Interview

1 06 2008

All,

In case you’re interested, I was interviewed recently by Clutch Magazine. In the interview, you’ll find improper use of the word ‘depreciating’…which I swear said ‘deprecating’ when I wrote it.* Still, I’ve got no complaints.

That Clutch Mag comment section will just be another place for the likes of Creole Beauty to reek havoc. And how can you advise people to not bookmark your site because it’s addictive?

Congrats Chris! However, as one of the famed thunder e-hoes, I’m a little scared of you in real life. Any man that can leave a woman as scorned as you have clearly left Creole Booty, should be feared. And I’m mad she called out Mrs. Epps like that.

Chris you obviously have friends in high august places, it is a coup to be on clutch magazine.

I thought anything Black was the media genius, but you are catching up vey quickly, more power to you.

Great interview, Chris! Congrats. You really gave people a feel for the site and I only expect it to get bigger as time goes. It’s kinda “popular” in its “unpopularity”, ya know?

2 06 2008

“Creole Beauty on June 1st, 2008
Chris’ website is the rantings of a very disturbed black man who hates his own kind.”

lmaooo she is so serious…lmaoo

I cannot get over how dickmatized that Creole chick is. *increasingly intrigued by what Chris has to offer*

Merri lee I have to cosign. I’m curious as to what magical powers Chris used on Creole chick for her to be so pressed.

Does CB e-mail you constantly? or Is CB Admiral Furious? I noticed your facebook status changed. AHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH

CB is going to shit a brick.

Did you notice that the attacks became more frequent when Chris first said that he was just dating someone? CB can’t let go.

“Merri lee I have to cosign. I’m curious as to what magical powers Chris used on Creole chick for her to be so pressed.”

Me, too. I’m not used to having sexual power over women I’ve never met.

Congrats Chris.

Creole Beauty needs to sit down somewhere. Her “antics” have gotten real old, real fast.

Congrats on the extra exposure! I’m pleasantly surprised that you’ve stayed headstrong and stuck to your guns (or more accurately, your ANGER), and that you don’t give a damn about softening the blow of your opinions just to make the proverbial pill easier for the masses to swallow. Keep up the good work!

They were right, and you were wrong. ‘Depreciate’ means “to belittle or mock”, while ‘deprecate’ means “to disapprove of strongly”.

Sort of.

You’re using ‘deprecate’ as a back formation from ‘self-deprecating’, which used to and still ought to be ‘self-depreciating’, meaning “mocking oneself”. Since ‘self-deprecating’ has become semi-standard usage, you have the option of arguing for ‘deprecate’ to mean “belittle or mock”.

But the editors at Clutch were apparently more conservative than you.
