If you scroll to the bottom, you’ll see Lorenzo’s “busy” schedule. Seems he’s on a role. Having been banned from Silverthought, then having his “tell all” interview yanked, and his stories pulled from Silverthought, Dagstine is now parading out two “new” projects. The first is a collection called “Fresh Blood”, which he advises isn’t about vampires, but does have a vampire story in it (huh?). He writes, “Only the finest or most entertaining tales made it in, and some I had to rewrite from scratch!” He can put on the cover, Now with 100% more suckage! Truth in advertising, you know. He also goes on to give us insight into why he chose the name “Fresh Blood” : “The reason my debut book is called Fresh Blood is… Well, new writer, fresh book… fresh talent… so I’m Fresh Blood!” Because you know, someone who claims 300 plus credits has to be new. Even after all those “credits” the fact no one knows who he is, is lost on him. Larry, there’s a reason you’re still unknown: you strive for stardom and can’t even reach the lower rung of mediocrity.
His next project is a history of Coney Island. He starts this off with a good chuckle: “Stay tuned here for information and some lovely pictures related to my big (and very first) high-paid non-fiction freelancing gig which involves reporting, real historical research, and required photography/picture-taking.” Umm, Larry, photography is picture taking; were you a real reporter, and done some research, you would have known that. Hope that’s not an example of your research abilities. Yes, that’s right, you possess none. BTW, if you google Coney Island, you get 457,000 hits. Yup, here’s a story that’s never been told.
Perhaps my favorite line is this: “I’m sure even people from England are aware of the rich and wonderful history of Coney Island New York (and Astroland Park, home of the Cyclone)…” Well of course. With Stonehenge, Hadrian’s wall, Big Ben, buckingham Palace, the tower of London, all the Brits talk about is an American amusement park. Daggy also mentions it being a high paid gig. Twice nothing is STILL nothing.
If Larry spent more time actually writing, than talking about it, he might, he just might, reach that lower rung of mediocrity.
