Goodbye

More than a few people have accused me of trying to have it both ways.

1. Pretending to be some outrageous fictional character, writing in a voice that has no responsibilities for consequences.

and

2. Being in fact an indentifiable academic administrator at a major research university

For reasons I am not going to make specific, I am now convinced that the critics were right, all along. I can't have it both ways.

So...let's forget the whole thing. I will post here only those things that I am willing to stand behind, and believe, in my actual life as Mike Munger, Duke Professor. Since I don't think I have anything interesting to say, in a blog at least, in that voice I don't expect any further blogging on this URL.

And, I'll start an anonymous blog where I can rant with impunity.

Goodbye.

I beg to disagree. I never made the distinction between the two. If you start a new blog, e-mail me the URL - I promise not to bust your identity.

All wrestlers make a comeback at some time... it's science.

Nah, Grease is just turning heel. Look for an appearance by Hollywood "Grease" Mungowitz in the near future.

"All wrestlers make a comeback at some time... it's science."

It's a slick PR move on Mungowitz part. He has been watching too much of Smackdown and Raw and making the typical MacMahan move to up his educational rating for the big one in the Cage fight of the century against Michael Jackson, which is bill as " The Rumble at the Neverland Institution" I have every reason to believe we will see him with a mask hood over his blog site trying to fool us again for a lousy raise and bonus from his present Institution. Say it ain't so shoeless Libertarian!

Don't go. Certainly don't go because someone kvetched about your (hilarious) Starbucks performance art! What message will this send to all the little Grease-o-maniancs out there?

King said...

As another blogging academic chair, though certainly not at an institution like Duke, I understand. Good luck -- I'll have my eyes open for Grease Reprise.

At the very least I'm grateful to KGM for making me feel better about going off on that desk clerk at the Tropicana Hotel. Though I didn't get him fired. Also, I apologized. Still...

What was I saying? Oh, yeah, the Killer Grease is dead, long live the Killer Grease.

Or something like that.

I haven't been this upset since the Cobain homicide wrecked high school for me 11 years ago.

Uh! Thank God you were not at Combine or you would be a total wreck over KM leaving and stash in some mental religious institution high in the Rockies with hundreds of priests muttering to you about your confession to Killer.

William said...

Are you really quitting? This is really awful. If you restart anonymously (and I confess if I had to start over again blogging, I would probably go anonymous to keep the university off my back), however will I find you?

Well...crap. If you're giving up the blogging biz, us untenured lecturer types are screwed for sure...

I told you to keep the job at horny lube, but no! You wouldn't listen to me and fell for Killer trap to leave you hanging with over the toe and foot hold behind the counter of the coupon.... So much for our leader !

Two questions:

1) Why give up the blog instead of the administrative position? (I assume you'll still be a tenured prof.)

2) Are you going to cut your hair also? I don't think I could take both in the same week.

It's like watching you favorite band sell out to the man.

Don't worry Troops! I was at Duke Medical today with my beloved for a follow up and I spotted Killer in the health system computer, while the sec turn her back to me. He is listed as Dr Doom under the Blog Doc section as the " Bald Headed Boys in the Band and Operating room" His main surgery skills are listed as on the cutting edge of high tech state cutting budgets for fat democrat and repubs in government....

You're only quitting so that people don't find out that you ain't Munger. You're the Krusher.

Im a little confused on the direction of the site, I mean, one can post whatever you want, no matter if it is true or not, thats the beauty of this, one can create forums with just an idea or a thought.
