Henry's sister is a hardback book writer, she did the prose version of "Melancholy Accidents", I kid you not, Google it!

No, simply defending myself and correcting lies and misrepresentations. If you miss them though, there are even more anonymous obsessive losers on Topix.com , although recently the Moderators have been weeding your ilk out. As the New York Times recemtly reported:

The "problem and animosity" seems to be a widespread problem with anonymous trolls such as you, hiding behind fake names and posting lies and smears against people.

Unfortunately for you, I fight back and correct your lies and misrepresentations about me... and label you for the trash you are.

Truth hurts, eh?

The fact is that I'm just a real person posting here, while anonymous trolls such as you create these threads apparently from some obsessed agenda they have to attempt to smear my name, libel, and otherwise misrepresent me. And from further reading, it appears to be a sort of Topix.com phenomenon that some don't seem to be able to deal with as well as I have.

For example:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/20/us/small-to...

"...a social media Web site called Topix, where they write and read startlingly negative posts, all cloaked in anonymity, about one another. And in Dee’s Place, people are not happy... called Topix a 'cesspool of character assassination.'[...] In rural America, older, poorer remote population lagged the rest of the country in embracing the Internet, the growing use of social media is raising familiar concerns about bullying and privacy... hubs of unsubstantiated gossip, stirring widespread resentment in communities where ties run deep, memories run long and anonymity is a novel concept.'Something about rural culture seems to make people want to have conversations in public,' Topix, a site lightly trafficked in cities, enjoys a dedicated and growing following across the Ozarks, Appalachia and much of the rural South, establishing an unexpected niche in communities of a few hundred or few thousand people..."

And, of course, there's a difference between free speech and libel. The posts made here and elsewhere on Topix.com by the trolls you asked about generally tend to fall into the latter category.

Okay, Commando, you've made it clear, and repeated here over and over, how much you hate the music of The Conley Brothers.

Yet you never seem to be able to elaborate, give a reason why, or offer any sort of valid criticism of their music, writing or musicianship.

Would you be interested in trying, for once? here's a good one for starters, can you offer any constructive critique on what you find so easy to snear at here?

Twilight Girl, written by Will Dockery & Henry Conley, one of what I consider one of my more successful poems, perfectly framed in musical arrangement by what many say are some of the best in the Columbus-Phenix City music scene... The Conley Brothers.

Twilight Girl

Six or six thousand,
we will meet again.
At blazing dusk,
or quiet dawn.
On that shore... again.
This is the wait,
the weight of the world.
Comes down sweet and heavy...
Twilight Girl.

On that quiet morning,
clear, crispy light.
Seeing a movie from a distance,
mourning in front of her flight.
This is the wait,
the weight of the world.
Comes down sweet and heavy,
Twilight Girl.

She offered me her cup,
asked me to fill it up,
I said "Later, babe.
Right now we have to talk
untangle the chakra
that crosses over."

Ghost horses,
from the car ahead,
looks like engine exhaust.
Blink my eyes through bitter tears,
a smile for what we've lost.
This is the wait,
the weight of the world.
Comes down sweet and heavy...
Twilight Girl.

Ok Will fair enough, look, you are not original, I see parts from other artists all through your stuff.
It's like you find bits of others people's and like it so much you eat it up and the vomit it all back up here and call it your art.
Man I had to call you out but it's real.
I find people and their art I like a lot but you gotta learn to let it influence you, not try and peice it all together and call it your own.
Sorry for the dose of reality, but pass it on to the Conley Bros too man.

Okay, fair enough, and granted /all/ artists are influenced by those who came before.

Even Shakespeare said it best:

"There is nothing new under the sun."

And said it 500 years ago.

That settled, I'm now curious on who you think, in your opinion, my work is too similar to? I'm aware of my influences, but I've always prided myself on my original take on poetry, and now later, music.

Can you cite some /specific/ examples for me, that in your ears and opinion, are not original? For example, does this one, "Shadowville Speedway", which I personally know of no other poem or song like it, fit with this (I have to say shallow) judgement?

Thanks, and be specific, please:

Shadowville Speedway

In a taxi watching a sporting house
Beside a Linwood vacant lot
Silverdollar moon portspotting
Constellation like a sailor's knot.
The sky was black, ink and glitter in the night
Train whine saxophone out beyond the light.
I'm in love with a ghost blue turns to grey
Put a pyramid on my head to take my pain away.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Brown Reculse magic drifting around the shed
Someone has it in for me I must not lose my head
Moving with the speedo life several with me left behind
Burned too many bridges defragmented my time.
Somewhere in time I've seen all this before
In a magazine or a dream of a distant war.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Manifested destiny a manifesto and a part
All the actors still agree that ever had a heart.
Hazel knew the karma, she kept it in a bottle
Black tooth mojo marked index cards
Bundles over the side of Dillingham Bridge
Splashing as ripples reflect from the stars.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Don't look back, don't admit defeat.

Well, your opinion on whether you like my work or not isn't really my focus here, but your accusation that my poetry and music isn't original, which I'd like to know more of, since that's one thing I've always prided myself on, was my original twist on the age old art of poetry and song.

For example, I can't see or feel really anything the following poem and song comes from but from the work of my own brain, never mind of course I didn't event rhyming poetry or rock-n-roll...

Can I venture to guess that you may admit you're somewhat mistaken in your "non original" judgement?

She Sleeps Tight by Will Dockery & The Shadowville All-Stars:

"She Sleeps Tight", vocals by Will Dockery & Sandy Madaris, guitars by Brian Mallard. Paintings by George Sulzbach.

She Sleeps Tight
Sleeps so tight
she has a marksman's eye.

Maker's mark
tattoo firewater spine.
Leather shoes
but nowhere to go.

Dice and coins
scattered in the snow.
Dice and coins
scattered in the snow.

Won't be long,
until I see her face.
She's waiting
in an undisclosed place.
I've been conspired
banned from my muse.
This won't stick
poor boy's all confused.

This won't stick
poor boy's all confused.
In Salem town
she keeps her chin so high.

Darkened breeze
she smiles as I roll by.
Step inside
she looks for tables left.

Wink at time
nothing lasts except yourself.Wink at time
nothing lasts except yourself.

Like a Steamboat
she plans to roll on down.
To the Gulf
out of this dirty town.
Copper mesh
kept stuffed in a jar.

Sharp cold hit
turning wine to water.
Sharp cold hit
turning wine to water.

We know him
eye deed by his ship.
In a trap
a kind of goosechase trip.

Whiskey fumes
and stale gunsmoke.
Sunk and drowned
with all her knives and jokes.

Sunk and drowned
with all her knives and jokes.
Sleeps so tight
she has a marksman's eye.

Maker's mark
tattoo firewater spine.
Leather shoes
but nowhere to go.

SHADOWVILLE SPEEDWAY is like JACK THE RIPPER wrote the lyrics
Interesting interpretation, but not what was intentional.

This was a simple love poem, such as written by Edgar Allen Poe.

Please women readers, and men. What is he talking about in these writings? What is he describing occuring in these songs?
Well, that's a good start, anyhow, you're like the A.J. Weberman of Shadowville or something.

Here's another you can put under your One Trick Pony microscope:

Swamp Street Exile (words by Will Dockery/Music by Rusty Wood)

http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_116...

Swamp Street Exile

Winterworld descends
Night owl on my back.
Your eyes are bleary
you won't be coming back.

Time... Demands
She's yelling.
Shut down clocks
at Noon.

In front of the Dead River
time to leave your smile.
If I'm wrong dear'lady
Come sit with me a while.

Memories... Like
Snowdust.
Swamp Street Exile
Tune.

Draw another picture
Of a perfect storm.
A red October morning
A field forever gone.

My wayward muse,
Leave it all to me.
Still in the bewilderness
Still too blind to see.

Time demands, she's yelling
shutdown clocks at noon.
Memories like snowdust
Frozen Stopwatch moon..
