"Rains feed the earth.
The flowers, the trees, the rivers. the oceans.
Rains, slow ME down,...releasing 'the reins of time'.
Giving my soul, my mind,...time to feed.
Given the sunshine of friendship,..
the fruits may be luscious."


Sitting out some hard rains,.
yesterday,..today;
two 'Café time-twiddlers' and myself
talked,..'the veiw from the bottom'.
...while sharing our '3/2 Coffee Special',..
cut with hot water,..
this very morning.
Café Junge,..Lübeck.

"What? The guy's in 'the Café' 15 years,..a 'VIP',...only written 200 other Posts,...and he writes YOU'..?!? 'Cause you called his voice 'hokey'..?"
"Pretty thin skinned, eh?"
" 'Hokey'?...funny,..derived from 'Hokus pokus'...kinda fitting.". ☺️
"THAT! insulted him!..?!?"

" 'I hope no one sends it to him.'. "
" Wow!, did he really write THAT?..!?"
" 'Schadenfreude' man. 'Schadenfreude'.
"Malicious Joy".
"Did he REALLY write that?..?"
"Such an act of small-ness, from such a 'big man'."
"Did he REALLY say that?..!?!!"
"...'cause you called his voice 'Hokey'?..!?"
"You know, the difference between stupidity and meaness,..
lays in the heart."
"Let's toast to our stupidity!"
"....god! this coffee tastes like some ass-hole watered it down!"
"WE,...watered it downed."

"He'd last two minutes in our shoes, man!"
"Where's he roost?"
"Hollywood. Magic Castle."
" 'Magic Castle'..?,..or did you say: 'Ivory Towers'? ". ☺️☺️
"Man,..google 'Ivory Tower' "
"..my telefon was stolen. Two weeks ago.'
"I don't have any mega-bites. Is the net free here?"
"****,..my battery's dead."
"Buddy. Buddy. (guy three tables over). Google 'Ivory Towers' for us."
"Thanks, man."
"Ivory Towers: a state of privileged seclusion or separation from the facts and practicalities of the real world. *
...Oxford Languages."

"Hey thanks buddy. You want that cookie?,..you got with your coffee?"
"Come on,..these guys are simply..out of touch."
"No man,..he wants, to eat the cookie himself."
"Not HIM! coran-flake,...the 'Tower Dwellers'!"
"Yeah,..right man."
"They're like..scared of,..the World,..? Incapable?"
"Lazy?"
"Sold out, for Security, man."
"Naa...in-capable."
"Think he's drinking watered down coffee!..?"
"He ain't got friends like ME!" 😄
"Who does he hang with?"
"I guess,..other 'Tower bats' "
"Didn't Daryl,..hangout the Castle, man....?"

.....silence.

"He said he wouldn't send it to you? You think he ever sent ANYBODY anything,...for free?"
"Yeah man,..you can have my cookie."
"Thanks buddy."

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . ö . . . . . . . . . ß. . . . . . .

3 peoples SENT(!) me Max Maven's Genii article,...
in the past 24 hours.
..i never asked a soul.
.....for free. 😌

Who?
'Buddys', on 'the Café' ?
Nö.
Guys, with names, I've never read before.
Two,..'Romantics',..
The other, probably a 'toe-nail biter'.

To brag about this is disgusting. I skimmed what you wrote because after about the third non-sensical but distasteful “paragraph” I lost the stomach for the rest. You seem to be nothing more than a self glorifying parasite. Sorry for the name calling but to revel in the fact that 3 people sent you a copy written article that the creator of said material explicitly asked them to not share is repulsive. Not only is it banal, it is self congratulatory theft. Congrats, you’re a jerk.

Hey Eric. 👋
Seems like a pretty scathing review,
from someone who opens by saying:
,...he didn't even read,
..most of what was written. 🤔

As you 'might' have already read:
the passing of Copywritten Material
IS NOT 'theft',..
let alone..."self congratulatory theft."

Published material,..in 'our' society,..
is open to exchange,..
for ALL.
(the selling, of copywritten material,.....forebidden)

I've heard,...some folks,..
WOULD,..like to change this... (🖕).
.....probably the same guys who make laws against Street Performers.

"...a self glorifying parasite."
..i couldn't help but being reminded of the film clip,..of YOU(!),.
a couple of years ago,..
laying in a hospital bed,... 🤕
begging,.. 😪
nö,..'asking',...for 'contributions'.....
[ 2. A person who is lazy and lives by other people working, giving them money, etc.: cambridge dictionary ]

(With so much time and thought, for 'me',...
i'd be curious if you ever wrote any of the poor saps,..
with words of 'thanks'. 🤔)

"Congrats, you’re a jerk."
I was curious,..

[informal, offensive, disapproval] Collins Wörtbuch

hmmm?
I'll let you explain yourself to me personally,
next time we cross paths, on the Streets.

öh,...i don't play,..'tourists parks'...
never did.
Do you ever make it out,..to the 'real' Streets, anymore?

Remember? One time in the 80's,
we DID cross paths.,...in Stuttgart.
You were with Cellini...
Zurich had been shut down,,.
Freiburg,....shut.
everybody headed north...
ran into 'the real Streets'.
,...and real Street Performers..

Remember that?
...you guys kinda all,......died.

Luckily,.Alexander de Cova had a place and refigerator(!),
..in Stuttgart!

"Mamma.."

I have to admitt,
I always expected,..
something a little more, from you.
I've always heard,...'rumour'.
But the truth is,..,
you're still hiding in the shadow of Cellini.
You never 'were'.
....you didn't even 'set-up',..in Stuttgart......

Yeah yeah,...hide in your 'Magical Magicians World'.
..play the tourists traps.
But if you ever want to breathe some real air,
...probably do your over-sensitive stomach(!) some good(!..!),
.....give me a call.
Day or night.

....ain't never goin' ta happen. 💋

Eight copies.
Thank you folks.
I really appreciate it.
Gallagher Hayes.

p.s.: Nate.
The letters themselves,.. https://www.michael-h-rohde.de/

,..AREN'T much fun! 😳

You have to 'hit' the 'Link' (!..!)... 😐

,...then,
the website opens. 👍

Michael Rohde,...a GREAT (!) Artist,..in our times.
Very humousfull works,...
playing
with 'the view from under'.

He worked 'the Streets', in Germany. for years.
Painting CEILINGS' in train stations,...
as an Underground Artist.
In 2017' he crash 'the documenta', in Kassel,...
became world famous,...
in certain circle....

In any case,....funny works.
"A lot of fun...",...in some circles.

That adage, “never argue with a fool…” probably applies here but I’ll wade in one more time because I struggle to find a truthful or accurate word one in your reply above.

As far as anything you wrote about me and Cellini I’ll just state it’s all wrong and you don’t know what you’re talking about—again, everything you wrote was wrong. I don’t suffer fools well and I certainly won’t get into a ****ing contest with one.

You seemed to miss, or purposely avoid my first point though. “Borrowing” copy written material had little bearing on my overall point. The point of my objection was that you were obviously gloating over the fact that 3 people had shared the material with you in spite of Mr. Maven’s expressed wishes to the contrary. What you did is shove it his and everyone else’s faces. That was what was so revolting about your smug, self-aggrandizing post.

Instead of addressing my overall point you try and smear me and one of my teachers. Nice. If you can’t attack the message, attack the messenger.

As to my working the streets, there are magicians all over this world that have seen me work the streets, it’s been my main source of income and has been so for over 25 years. How about you? Do you perform any magic in the streets? I ask because all I’ve seen you upload are clips of you playing piano while your wife dances. Do you perform a magic show? Or do you just do tricks on the side?

I learned a long time ago not to pretend I’m something that I’m not.

That's pretty much exactly opposite of how it works in the US. If someone purchased a copy of Genii magazine, they have the "right of first sale". That means that they can sell or give away the physical copy of the magazine that they purchased. If they distribute copies that were made without permission from the copyright holder, they are stealing intellectual property and that's illegal. If a bunch of people sent you their physical copies of Genii magazine, then good for you; it is their right to do so. Otherwise, you (and they) are infringing another's copyright.

It's way too late to stop while you're ahead on this thread, so I would suggest that you stop before you get even more behind.

GMcAlpin,....Gregory. 👋
You talk, as though, you know your way around the Copyright Law,
in the United States of America. 🤓
Great.
I was a bit surprised you didn't mention.....'Fair Use'. 🤔

After all,...this is kinda the theme we are talking about here. 🤗

You know,...'Fair Use'.

"Copyrighted work comes with certain restrictions and exceptions. Specifically, the law has a 'Fair Use' provision that may allow for the distribution and reproduction of copyrighted material without the owner's expressed consent.

Under Fair Use, if the original created work serves to teach, to be discussed and studied, to be reported in the news, or to be commented in public discourse, then it may be disseminated without any legal repercussions. Fair Use serves to balance the owner's rights versus public interest.

Some exceptions to copyright protection may include the following:

1.) Library and archives - Protected work may be copied for the purpose of its preservation in libraries and archives.
2.) Educational use - Copyright infringement doesn't apply to protected work used for learning, instruction or examination. For this purpose, the material may be photocopied, performed and played as part of the public's education and enrichment.
3.) Temporary copies – Having back-up copies of a computer program, provided it has been purchased and used lawfully, will not infringe on the owner's copyright.
4.) Specialized format - Reproducing and distributing copyrighted work in a specialized format for people with disabilities is not a copyright infringement.

The statute provides that fair use of a work “for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use, scholarship, or research)” is not an infringement of copyright." ☺️

....kinda clear,...don't you find?
(Especially #2)

{ Section 107 of the Copyright Act. }

Gosh,...i'll sleep well tonight,..knowing...
"It's way too late to stop while you're ahead on this thread, so I would suggest that you stop before you get even more behind." (GMcAlpin)

...knowing,....you're looking out for me.

Good night Greg.
....that finger points the way to the stars. 🤗
Gallagher

p.s.: Somewhere I read:
"Weakness is NOT, in our failures,
but in our resignation. "
....can't remember where.

The guy was talking to folks,...i can 'associate' with.
Don't pollute the air asking me,..'to stop'.
Thanks.

Eric Evans,...I'll start by saying: "You were right!"

I DID miss your 'first point'.

Gee,...how could I have...?
You only wrote one paragraph. 🤔
......only 85 words. 😳

Only 85 Words,....in which,
you manage to called me:
"...a non-sensical distastful writer".
"a self-glorifing parasite."
"repulsive...banal...self congratulatory thief."
"Congrats, you’re a jerk.",...as a cherry on the top. 🍒

Somewhere in the middle, you managed:
"Sorry for the name calling." 😇

...golly,...how could I have over-looked,...'your point'? 🙄

In this second Post, you start,...by calling me a "Fool".
....and stating how it's a waste of your time.
(Gosh,....lucky me.)

You then, label my first Post as: "smug, self-aggrandizing..".

Accuse me of: skirting your "overall point".
"smearing me (you) and one of my teachers." (Cellini)

You imply I am 'an in-experienced Street Performer'.
'Not a Magician.'
....basically a 'Poser'. 😞

Hmm,...a lot of 'Points',...to chew on here. 🤔

Let's start with the easy poop.
Someone who sells themselves as "Sun Tzu's seventh son".
or 'Carl von Clausewitz boot-polisher'...
you sure like calling people names and throwing insults.
Basic 'Abusive ad hominem'.
(....seems more likely, you studied,...Hu Flung Pu.)

You show NONE of the qualities, of those you exemplify.
None of the Class, Self-discipline, Thought,.....Martial Tack.
None of the Mental Finesse.

'Name calling'?,...that's your metal?

"I learned a long time ago not to pretend I’m something that I’m not."
....maybe you should take a re-fresher course.

"...smearing me (you) and one of my teachers." (Cellini)
I only state the facts.
You guys couldn't get an Audience,..that day, in Stuttgart.
1.) Your Shows couldn't cross the language barrier.
2.) Without Tourists, no-one had interests, in what either,
of you offered.
You were too banal,...for 'the Banal'. (Not a joke.)

Simple facts.
Do you deny them?
"Smearing"...?
....wake up buddy.
Learn from the Reality around you.
You could (can?) only play English speaking Touristic resorts.
,...'Busker Festivals'.
......with groomed audiences.
Why deny?
Be proud of what you are.
...or change.

'Street Performer' ? 🤔
...well,...let's be honest.
'Out-door Entertainer',....'Animator for Tourists'.

Concerning your 'initial point':
"you were obviously gloating over..."

Nö.
You seemed to have missed MY initial point.

My point was/is: Malicious Joy.
,..from one so,...'highly respected'.
For what reason?
"...hokey voice." ? 🤔

Dumping buckets from Ivory Towers....
on sops below.

BUT(!): Three 'sops',...didn't eat the droppings(!). 👍
Two of whom, spoke of....'the Underground'.

My second point, was an expansion, on this territory,...'the Underground'.

"Gloating"?
You've got to be kidding.
"Talking heads" don't tickle my turtle's testicles....
let alone stir my coffee.

I couldn't help but wonder, though:
"How quick, to the defense, would Eric Evans *have* hopped;
if I would have scratch,..
let's say:
Harry Cox..?
...a 'no body'..?
Would he have shown sö much.......concern?"

Or is he booking a room in 'the Tower', as well? 🤔

. . . . . . . . . . . . *. . . . . . . . . @ . . . . . .

A 'Poser',...this is a hard one to fend.
I mean, I could simply say: "Sure! I'm a Magician!..!"
....but that doesn't prove much.
You kinda pull me over the table here.
...with an accusation low enough,
.....to distract, from the 'initial point'.
👏 👏 👏 👏👏👏👏

Your,..."25 years,...'out-of-doors' ",..I know it's true.
How many videos are there of YOU,..up in the net?
(yeah,...ONE(!) came up,...mysteriously,...
1 month before your Penguin Talk. ☺️)
Other then that?

You know, as I;
'Stealing' ain't happening by guys sending Genii articles.
'Stealing' happens when our acts get filmed,..
our Pitches told,...ect.
Therefore,...few youtubes clips, of Street 'workers'.

Still,...how do I answer the sucker-punch: 'Poser'?

I always believed,...still do:
"Trying to prove myself, I only lose myself."

But,....
.....your profile says: Rio Grande.
Texas?
Go knock on the door of:
1082 N Fm 649 Rio Grande,...Texas.
A guy named Alan will answer the door.
Ask him what his brother does for a living.
,...since 1975.
Consistently,...and only.
(öK,..there WAS a 3 year break, in the early '80's, for the U.S. Army,..
and a year, as a 'hired' Strolling Magician,
at the Tennessee World's Fair,..)

Hmm?,...47 years?,..?
Can that be?,..?(!)?
Ask my brother,...
Take a minute,...drink a beer together.
(Altho, he has a bad habit,
of putting a scoop of Vanilia Ice Cream(!),
in his Guiness! 😑)

He has enough film and newspaper and photos and storys.
Ask him "What kind of Shows his brother does,...
and has done,...on the Streets?
,....since 1975."

Then Eric,...
be 'the Man that you think you are',...
The 'man',..you 'want to be',,.
and report back to us.
öK?
Clear up the question 'Poser', you threw.
,...or was it just a 'smear'?
("Sh*t sticks...doesn't have to be true." Leona Helmsley. 'Queen of Mean')

I wish you well,
...and some of the good weather I've enjoyed the past 7 days.,....
here 'on the Streets'.
(Lübeck. Bad Oldesloe. Bad Schwartau.,.....
...no Festivals,..no Touri's,...nö other *Profi's*, like yourself.)

Dr34,

Dude, that’s a really heavy compliment. Probably the best I’ve ever gotten. Thank you doesn’t seem to cut it but it’s all I have to offer. Thanks for taking the time and making the effort. You don’t seem to post much here so I’m even more impressed.

I have a lot of respect for Gallagher and for Eric and want to stay out of the ****ing match.I do hope to meet both of you one day, but probably not both at the same time. Perhaps it is time for this thread to quietly wither away.

Seriously, Eric - to work with you and Jimmy in New Orleans in the French Quarter is on my bucket list. I have been there twice to perform (once near Christmas and once during Mardi Gras) and both times was there when the two of you were absent.
Gallagher, I am not sure I will make it to Europe again, but the invitation to Pennsylvania still stands.

I don't see where any of that fits in with you receiving three copies of an article the author specifically asked not be distributed.

"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
