Sesshie Messhy Pusshy thread is no more. Continue on the musings on our favourite onward pilgrim Madame Sessums right here!

Well bitch got her out of state insurance coverage. L'opération will commence on Tuesday 16th a full two and a half weeks since it broke. I am sure that is going to add complications but good luck to her.

"I won't bury the lede. My surgeon Luke and his insurance administrator Jack got me approved for out-of-network surgery here. "We're good to go on Tuesday," Jack said when he called while i was having a coffee at the bookstore off The Plaza. I cried. I whispered hundreds of Thank You's to Those Who Hear Our Whispered Thanks. i have often been called a one-off. The surgeon even said i was a singular sort during our conversation the other day. after all the tsuris and still the pain of the next fews days to get through, i kind of like being referred to as outside the network. i am so grateful to luke and jack and the person in authority who had the empathy to approve this. That nameless faceless entity with the power to affect my life did so in a positive way that feels a bit like salvation. there is even a way to look at bureaucracy in a spiritual way i guess when it was being folded in already no matter the outcome to my pigrimage.

The walk today and the people i met fit into the heightened state i feel these days which is the balance for the pain and the stress. Surrender and decisions have been in quite a dance. The narrative of today - of which the approval of the surgery was but a part - was a bit mind-blowing even by my mystical standards. But i need to eat then (sort of) lie down and contemplate this day. i will write more deeply about it tomorrow.

R8 the person who reports them / gets them deleted is an enabler to Sesshie’s self-destruction. We talk about what he posts, and he is delusional and deeply fucked up. Whoever gets these threads deleted likely thinks they’re protecting him in some way. But we — people who can see clearly— are not the problem. You can delete our threads all you want. But you can’t delete proof that Sesshie is a narcissistic imbecile who can’t write. In order to do that you’d have to delete all of his Facebook and Instagram posts. Good luck with that!

But note that he’s not staying at Ali MacGraw’s, or his new friend and fellow looney-tune Kathelin’s. And as someone pointed out in the latest deleted thread, he had all those breakfast/lunch/theater/ballet dates in NY, and not one of his associates was willing to put him up on their couch or in their guest room/pool house, etc. No. He had to stay at the hostel in Chelsea and wander around the breakfast room in his underpants stinking up the joint and asking randos to wipe his ass and whatnot.

The people he brags about being associated with are not the fawning dementia-addled commentators on his FB posts. And that, my friends, is his tragedy.

Or at least one of them.

This asshole takes and takes and takes and has never once given! His idea of “giving” is coasting along while using others, and interacting with NPCs to be used in his scribblings as foils in order to - again - gaze at his own fucking navel. He’s so maddeningly unself-aware!

(Just to note - I’m an [italic]actual[/italic] fucking cripple due to delayed cervical spinal surgery that damaged my spinal cord because my province’s medical system is FUCKED - and a gen-xer who raised a kid without any support or complaint while fighting depression, C-PTSD, and chronic physical pain for years, which is neither here nor there, but… never once did I make that anyone else’s problem; nor did I grift or abandon pets.

It’s ludicrous that his FB friends/enablers are decrying the evil health insurance system when it’s he who is milking the system and risking his own health. He could have had excellent, low-cost care in Paris or gone to an in-network surgeon in NY, which has some of the best orthodpedic doctors in the world, but oh no, he had to continue this suicidal “pilgrimage.”

by Anonymousreply 14May 11, 2023 10:01 AM

Shr left Paris because she knew the surgery would be relatively cheap, and wouldn’t be able to grift tens of thousands from it, because even the dumbest yokel knows that health care in France is heavily subsidized - even for foreigners.

She left NYC because she couldn’t afford any more nights at the Chelsea Ho(s)tel, and no one would put her up.

I’m recovering from hand surgery and wrap my hand and bandage with a plastic bag tied with a rubber band and carefully get into a sitz bath everyday. I can’t get the bandage wet. I then, after washing completely, carefully get out. I can’t stand being dirty. I’m the same age as he. I leave the door to my apartment unlocked during the bath in case I fall hoping people will hear me and come in. I will do this for at least a week, maybe two. Should I be taking a spit bath?

Strangers stop and stare and connect (as does everything, natch) with him, mesmerized by his aura, then, on cue, start blurting out random pronouncements rife with spiritual haikus and quirky coincidences which are then pureed into the multiple inane word salads he tosses out on FB and IG (and, presumably, his Nutsack "rubrics") multiple times a day to the gaggle of followers who are clearly the fuel for this drivelmobile.

I honestly would be fine living in a shack in the middle of nowhere, but I’m also a serious introvert who grew up rural and somewhat self-sufficient, growing food, looking after chickens, and building stuff and whatnot, always learning about the flora and fauna around me and exploring the wilderness, and also having a lot of therapy for my (substantial) early trauma, some of which was zen-based (DBT). I also grew up without religion. Sesshie… did not do any of these things.

My issue is this. According to a poster on a deleted thread, he told a group of other gay men that when he was staying at his brother’s guesthouse, he felt grateful for a small loan his brother gave him and got the notion that he would like to go up to the big house and give his brother (I shit you not) “a luxurious blow job” to thank him for the loan. Luxurious. His brother. According to Sesshie, all the doors were locked at the big house so he skittered back to the shack he was staying in, and if I remember correctly, Sesshie said his brother likely locked all the doors because he knew what Sesshie’s insane, incestuous ass was up to.

To paraphrase John Cheever, “What can you do with a man like that?”

And he defended this lunacy by saying siblings who lose their parents at a young age don’t have sexual boundaries, which, sorry. That’s a you thing.

As he basks in the light, beatifically glowing in spiritual-repose selfies, I wonder. Do you think he believes any of his own tripe? It's clearly not genuine in terms of "paying it forward," or making amends, or kindness, but, in his own way, does he believe this? Or is the whole pilgrim-in-(ladies')-rags journey schtick just his only face-saving recourse, his only way to parlay his decay -- in which not a single member of his exalted coterie of celebrity friends has offered even a cot or a sofa to sleep on--into some kind of glamorized Gandhi cosplay? To make it seem like this is all a deliberate act as opposed to a tragically deserved dwindling? Clearly he has not given up his obsession with material things (fashion, that pretentious array of literature and wriswatches flat-Stanley-ing their way around the cramped Airbnbs), and he seems unaware that his postings are as shallow as ever. But do you think he believes that he is on some special journey, somewhere in the windmills of that mottled dome?

No, R91, I don't think he believes any of it. He's an opportunist to the core; it's all a means to a grifting end. It's a look, a pose, and he's nothing if not a poseur--he's built his entire life around posing--and his words are as hollow and empty as they sound.

Not that he is not a grifter, but I also think he is in some type of manic state. His behavior is elevated and distorted. It is curious as you mentioned, r91, that since all his nonsense began in London not one person he has run into or contacted has offered him a place to stay. He mentioned the other day his sister is coming to Santa Fe to care for him after his surgery. If I were his sister, I would have told him to contact Ali McGraw and ask her to help out since they are such bosom buddies. Such an appalling person.

by Anonymousreply 100May 14, 2023 5:28 PM

Relevancy, validation and ego. These are what drives this sad little man.

Years ago, I knew another old guy Rick, on Christopher St. He was large, pale, and slack faced, his clothes smelled bad,and though he was a gentle, nice man, he really looked like someone had “rode him hard ad put him back wet.” A lot like what Kevin looks like now.

He had been a top hairdresser and done magazine covers, etc. as a top stylist (back then there were only an handful) and fell out of favor with drugs and alcohol. He’d sit up in the window every day, peering out in the street and I befriended him. I’d buy him a coffee or dessert once in awhile, and he told me lots of stories. He was always looking for work and working in a high end shop then, I arranged an interview for him at the salon I worked at. I really had to pull a lot of favors to make that happen, and he didn’t show up!

I got angry and didn’t really engage much with him after that, he was in his 60’s and acting like a man baby.

I think KS stories are an old man revering or living in his past, a general disconnect from current reality, and that like Rick, wasn’t doing anything to reverse his predicament, but swanning around in his own manufactured fabulosity, waiting for someone to throw him a safety line.

It’s tiring, I feel bad for his family who is likely bankrolling him, and that this isn’t going to end well, especially because reading between the lines, he doesn’t talk about sobriety, any projects aside from his own manufactured ones, or how he’s navigating his pain sober.

by Anonymousreply 101May 14, 2023 5:37 PM

KS reminds me of an ex of mine - a “former” meth addict and fabulist with spiritual pretensions who refused to work and soaked me for the better part of $20,000 before I finally pulled the plug.

Wherever he is, I hope he’s as miserable as KS secretly is.

And before I get primetimed out of this thread, I’d just like to second the comment above about DoomLA. Your comments are gold. Thank you!

R101’s comment about the “man baby” in his 60s reminds me that KS, like so many other profoundly solipsistic people - especially those in the “arts” (what KS purveys is scarcely worthy of the term) - is a Boomer.

I know - not all Boomers think the Universe revolves around them and that their self-perceived brilliance entitles them to a fabulous life whether they work for it or not, but of the people I’ve met in that category, all have been Boomers.

If I were on FB, I’d be sorely tempted to “OK boomer” her. Imagine her spluttering indignation!

by Anonymousreply 105May 14, 2023 7:01 PM

R91, You asked if he believes his own tripe? I think it's irrelevant. The thing with Sesshie is he cares about how things look, not about how things are. I think back on the post he did with a picture of the building in Hudson that had section 8 housing for seniors. He was considering applying, but clearly hated how the building looked. And he hated how he'd look as a normal 67 year old, living within his means. It was at that moment he came up with the whole pilgrim schtick.

So he develops this plan to go from one cultural hub to the next and stay in the cheapest possible Airbnbs, and spends all his waking hours trying to *look* like a rich sophisticate. The press tickets, the opera, the ballet, you know the drill. Remember how he'd go sit his stanky-ass in the Dior store in Paris and pretend to read a book? He wants to rub shoulders with glamorous people, run into Mick Jagger at Prada, and look like someone who can afford to shop at these places. He's already running around Santa Fe going to all the fancy stores and galleries, forcing himself on the staff -- a captive audience who mostly just have to be polite to the old coot.

If someone calls him on his shit -- for instance asks him why he's doing all this globetrotting instead of hunkering down and paying his taxes -- he's got an answer. As he has told us time and time again, he is not a tourist, he's a pilgrim! Someone in his FB comments yesterday asked why he chose to visit Santa Fe, and he said something like he never does anything for a reason, he just gets a feeling of vision about something. He's running on pure vibes, our little Seshhie. You can't argue with his visions and hunches.

And he's fooling nobody except for the fraus. He can brag all he wants about the pashmina he's been wearing that he says was a gift from Tom Ford. Zoom in and it's thoroughly motheaten. And the briefest glance at what's left of his teeth will confirm he's not even passing as middle-class at this point. So back to your question about whether he believes all the hoo haa he spouts. I think he thinks he can use the pilgrim nonsense to deflect from his recklessness and it's working out for him. What he believes is he can do whatever he wants and nobody gets to question him because he's on this higher plane he invented. I don't think this is going to end well for him, but I think he wants to go out in a blaze of glory (falling down the Paris metro stairs or some shit) rather than living to a respectable old age in senior housing.

And I agree with everyone else. You're a much better writer than he ever was.

[quote]How did the bridges get burned in Hudson of all places

No idea. He befriended me on FB at one point and I thought, odd but okay, sure. This was at the time of his move to San Francisco when he was to edit some new magazine. I read scattered posts for a while but they became too bizarre and I stopped. Around the time of his move to Hudson I got a new FB friend request and as I have some experience moving from big cities to small places, maybe this will be an interesting adjustment. It was clear he thought that Hudson would be a panacea, that he would be a bit of a big name in a 'small town,' but it was also clear that his finances and prospects were not bright. I read only scattered posts and he disappeared from my feed for a long while, cropping up again when he it was clear her was a little tight for money and his economizing in moving to Hudson had perhaps not been enough.

He wrote of being harrassed by some druggie with who he had sex, evidently, of giving up pets (again) for who he couldn't be bothered to keep a less than revolting cat box, of pining over other pets he had lost or relinquished, of the misplaced optimism of being 'this close' to a big book deal, of a change of fortune that wasn't going to happen, of believing that some lunch or dinner was going to secure a big and fabulous future... And all the while that he was harping about humility and the El Camino and living simply, he still managed to come across as a vile person who had learned nothing but new disguises from his long tumble down the hill of Grace. He is absolutely a long, slow motion image of a train wreck, but with a thick outer crust of cuntiness and hauteur that makes it impossible to have more than the rare seconds worth of pity.

His current course of Grifting, his Pilgrim's Path has the pathos of a Thackeray novel but none of the humor. I can only read his rantings in small infrequent doses and don indulge too frequently in schadenfreude, but damn, what a show this creep puts on.

"SATURDAY HEIGHTENED COINCIDENCE #4: I have been trying to find a simple black cotton poncho to wear post-surgery that wasn't cost prohibitive and finally found one on my Plaza amble hanging on a rack outside a women's store. Went in to pay for it and was standing inches away from this dark-haired beauty at the small counter as she was buying or exchanging a leather change purse. i tried not to get in the way of her own transaction or to get bumped by customers on the other side where my shattered shoulder was. the young woman at the check out asked about the sling and i gave her a brief version of the narrative.

The woman next to me turned and said, "Do not look on this as suffering. You don't deserve to suffer. This is not about suffering." "You are repeating what i have been saying about this," i told her, "which is that i could choose to see this as punishment and suffering or i could see it as a ..."

"Crucible," she said, invoking the term i have been using for this experience. I have learned not to be shocked anymore by these heightened moments, just live gratefully in the wonder. "Yes, a crucible toward a deeper enlightenment," i said.

She turned to face me. "This is a moment," she said, waving her hand within the small space between our bodies as if it were in need of kneading, a tactility to the stillness between our chests. "Live in this moment. When i was 32," she said, "i had a heart attack and stroke while driving with my young children in the car and crashed it. Thankfully they weren't hurt but i was in a coma for two months and had a near death experience. i had to learn to use a whole side of my body again when i returned. This experience for you is about being in your body in a new way as you heal. It is an opportunity. When I came back into mine i had a new mission to help others heal."

"Who are you?"

"Shan. I moved to Taos and became a shamanic healer. Let's go out into the courtyard and let me work on you." When we got outside, she introduced me to her friend sitting on the stairs, Maureen Dodd. "She's a healer too," she said. "Talk to her while i do this." So i did as she did, laying her increasingly warm hands upon my shattered shoulder that warmed to them. During our simultaneous conversation, I told Maureen that i had come into the store to buy a black cotton poncho. The beatifically bemused Maureen reached into her own bag and pulled out an identical one that she too had bought.

After about 7 or so minutes Shan shook out her hands. I turned to her. "That was deeply kind of you," I said. "Thank you. i'm so grateful." "I can tell you are deeply kind yourself. I know it, You are a kind person," Shan said.

"i'll own that," i replied. "i am both a receptacle for kindness and someone who also pays it forward.' "Stop," said Shan to the man walking past us at that exact moment. She put her hand in front of his chest and turned him around so I could see the front of him and his t-shirt. BE KIND was printed on it.

"Who the fuck are you?" i asked the guy after Shan explained we were in the midst of talking about kindness. "I'm Carlos," he said, staring at me. "Keep manifesting."

I am a conduit. I bear witness. The manifestations are gifts - illuminations - from a power greater than myself. Onward"

r173, I think it is early dementia (although it is not all THAT early) along with being a dumb, pretentious, broke ass cunt. I would throw in the likelihood of being on the spectrum (all that self-involvement is clinically pathological.) Oh, and a cluster of personality disorders that could deteriorate into delusional schizophrenia at any moment. Wait, I forgot about the drug addiction. The personality he developed as a raging drug addict did not disappear once he supposedly stopped using. So add that too.

[quote] I think it is early dementia

Slogging through some of his FB posts and greasy-lensed snaps of "the blue light," I've wondered the same, R175.

But then before the bottom completely fell out of his career, he decided to scrap his $2000 a month lease on a 2000sf TriBeCa apartment and...

[quote]Instead of relocating to one city, Mr. S[.] eventually settled in three: Miami Beach, New Orleans and Paris. “All my wealthy friends have places around the world,” he said, “and I thought I could have that life on a smaller scale with 500 square feet in each city.”

That was in 2000, evidently His HIV diagnosis was in 1997 and his firing from Vanity Fair was 2004.

In any case, his recklessness with real estate and finances and long-term planning wasn't born yesterday, or in Hudson, or even in his short-lived second act in San Francisco.

Giving up a sweet lease on a large TriBeCa apartment in order to rent not one, not two, but three apartments in Miami - New Orleans - Paris. He's always had a real talent for pissing whatever he had away, in this case abandoning his oddball jetsetting scheme by 9/11 he claims. It's like those fashionable shop windows with the smart typography across the bottom: NEW YORK - PARIS - LONDON - MILAN - SIOUX FALLS.

Batshit decisions are long a specialty it seems. As if burning a candle at both ends leaves much room for "Onward!"

“I’m a mentor, not a tutor, so we do things like go to museums and the theater, and he spends a week with me in Provincetown every summer,” he said.

“I never thought I would be a 51-year-old homosexual in New York, and the two most important relationships in my life would be with a 13-year-old Puerto Rican kid and a 3-year-old Chihuahua,” said Mr. Sessums, a wide grin spreading across his devilishly handsome face. ___

Yes, R185, he has a real talent for giving the appearance of reading. He's been toting James Baldwin's 'The Fire Next Time' from place to place on his travels it seems, propping it on a desk/refectory (refracted blue light special?) table as though he were reading it. It's one or two essays, less than 60 pp. He wants so much to show it to us in every desk photo, his little still life along with some watches and, somewhere in the background, a collection of too-tight ladies' frocks and smocks and casual wear and black turtlenecks tight as sausage casings -- the trappings of a writer's garret. Nevermind it's not a proper garret nor he a proper writer, it's the accoutrements that count. ('Did I tell you about my series on celebrities in black turtlenecks? How much time do you have?̈́')

Like that novel he's been reading, a page a week it would seem, and milking it for its visual prop value since he started his Pilgrimage.

The lack of out of state coverage for the physical therapy....that's it! That's the casus belli for the grift. No way his brother is paying for it when he stays with him in Mississippi. That line of credit has long been closed. Cue "Medicare won't cover my physical therapy for my shoulder while I'm on my pilgrimage...they just don't understand. Please help with lots of your lovely hard earned money, I'll pay it forward with oily cake if my brother's wife lets me use her kitchen. Onward".

More fool the fraus and eldergays in Des Moines IA etc who will actually give him cash so he can continue writing his shit poor writing.

The next few days are going to be really telling. That poor sister is going to be so put upon. Ali MacGraw better change her phone number or she will be asked for all sorts. I wonder will he continue to stay in the shack? It's nice but not appropriate for convalescing. Is he going to be taking 'spit baths' for the next six months. If so, I hope he invests in some good deodorant and a few bars of Irish Spring.

As for Santa Fe...I wonder if half of these 'heightened coincidences' (that in itself makes my eyes roll like the cookie monster), actually take place or whether they're embellished bullshit. Because if he's truly running into all these shamans and shoulder injured persons then there must be a severe calcium deficiency in Santa Fe and/or some of the radiation from Los Alamos travelled in the wind from the Manhattan Project and fucked the whole place up.

He constructs his little coincidences as a reflection of his own talent for conjuring in every city he visits, every path he takes "a marvellous environment for coincidence" (to steal a line from a Charles Ludlam character.) He really does try to cultivate an image of moving about on some rarefied Higher Plane, the coincidences of which he writes are plentiful and delightful, but also re-affirmations of his excellent choices in sowing all the right seeds to harvest later along his path. He's so self-absorbed he can't leave chance to chance, magic to magic, or refracted light to the sun. It's all him, him, him. Business as usual. He is his own HIgher Power of his own absurdity.

How disgusted he is with the Facebook followers of his "narrative." these great unwashed who can reflect no golden light back upon him, have no names to drop, no luxurious guest houses nor unused fourth homes to offer him, who don't even subscribe to his Substack.

Thanks, R248. To your question (and that R249's point), no, I don't know him, and have no grudge from way back. I think it was in the thread just before this one, now deleted, that I mentioned that I had been introduced once as part of a group of people all at once, fleetingly, many years ago. That's it. I've had acquaintances in common with him, but we never discussed him. His name never came up, or there were better things to talk about.

No doubt that he's crossed paths and burnt bridges with many, including some on DL (condolences to the poster whose cats our pilgrim agreed to watch and then forgot.) But the worst he's ever done to me was give a vague little eye roll to the group introduction and to befriend me on FB at about the time he was pleading contributions toward a veterinary bill (to which I didn't contribute.) His FB posts would percolate to the surface now and again and disappear, as they do. I unfollowed him at some point in his Hudson phase and then began following DL threads on his pilgrim posts on high jinks.

The way the eyes slow down and stop-frame the action when an accident is occurring has always interested me. I guess that's my best excuse for watching this terrible circus.

[quote] I was thinking about my upcoming itinerary for the next few months which included NYC and Santa Fe and San Francisco and New Orleans and Mississippi and Asheville and Provincetown before heading back to London for six months and Paris for two.

Fucking hell. How complicated, and expensive. What's with the 7-city American tour? Is he a pilgrim, or is he not?

He wanted to live a European life but his brain is too addled to manage it. It's simple. He could as many as 90 days in Paris (or any place in 26 Schengen Zone countries within the EU), then up to 180 days in London, then back to Paris for up to another period of up to 90 days.

90 +180 + 90 = 360 days. A year. He can repeat the whole thing, fitting in 5 days in the U.S. as a novelty.

If he really wanted to be a pilgrim, it's possible. He doesn't need to set foot in the U.S., let alone do a 7-City Pity Tour of however many months. He's said that his European life is a bargain, his lodgings less than half the cost of his old 'loft' in Hudson, but surely flights and city-hopping and his $130/night lodgings at the Chelsea Hostel, for example, must erode some of that economy. It's a lot of money to spend to get Ali McGraw to spring for a dinner.

He complained last year that he couldn't spend more than 90-days in Spain between Barcelona and the El Camino de Santiago again. But he could have done those things in 90 days or fewer and been fine, jumping over to London for 6 months, then to Paris for 3 months. But he seems never to let simplicity interfere with a plan, even on El Camino.

by Anonymousreply 299May 18, 2023 7:54 AM

Either set of travel plans doesn’t sound very wise when you have little income (Social Security, presumably, some of which may have been attached by the IRS) and no job or savings. And as above, there is the cost of daily living. Even at $50 a night, 360 nights a year in the cheapest BnB in existence is $18,000/yr. Add $50/day to ogle baristas and eat food you made on the John and there’s another $18k a year. Throw in some airfare and the train from London to Paris and you’re crowding $40,000 annually. His Medicare premiums, if he’s paying them, would be more than $2k/yr but may be offset by the money he doesn’t spend doing laundry. Medicare, as he’s seen, only works in the US and in his case, largely in New York. Getting ill outside the States could be very expensive.

Fat chance he's making $50,000 from Substack. Surely the figure of "over 1000 subscribers" on Substack includes followers who might never had contributed any money or be people who gave $1 or $5 once. They likely receive an alert of new postings and may or may not have access to all his content. He's not pulling in 1000+ paid subscribers at the hoped for sum of $50 a year.

His London room rents for £35 a day. His landlady confirms the figure, writing that it makes her £900/month which funds her annual 3-month holiday in Spain each winter. She writes that she lets a second spare room separately to a boarder (poor Pan on whom the rotten things in the refrigerator were blamed.)

£900/$1115 a month. His monthly room cost is cheaper than the average monthly rent for a studio apartment in about 20 U.S. states, and not extravagant compared to the rest (the lowest rate is for the state of West Virginia where the average monthly cost if a studio apartment is about $250 less than his London lodgings.)

He's a horrible person, deluded, an idiot, a grifter, a positive example of nothing, but even I don't begrudge his every penny or worry about when exactly the poor IRS is going to start collecting its due. But I can't take a pleasure if wondering how much too much he paid for a sad lady's trench coat or pulling out of his hands foil-wrapped crumble of rotten cheese. Poor people, stupid people, rich people, no one spends their money well according to almost anyone else in the world.

Two years ago he backed out of a Section 8/Senior housing deal, a tentative offer of a one-bedroom for about $700/month. He backed out, he said, because of his premature glee at accepting a new editorial position at Grazia magazine which, as these things do, ended badly and quickly. The salary he anticipated making him ineligible for housing assistance never materialized (though the secret salary from a NY legislator's did.)

In retrospect it might have been prudent financially to have taken the cheap Hudson apartment and to have stayed there 'til death, refusing income of a level that would jeopardize the roof over his head. But he didn't. Like a gambler, he seems to hold tight to the idea that just around the corner there's some "connection," some chance meeting to relaunch his career and fill his pockets.

by Anonymousreply 314May 18, 2023 5:18 PM

I doubt the Substackers are paying the $50 fee. I imagine some are the $5 a month who will give him a one or two month subscription and then pass off. The fact there is even one gullible cunt paying him $50 to read the shit he writes just reaffirms for me how stupid people can be.

by Anonymousreply 315May 18, 2023 5:19 PM

When she was applying for Section 8 housing she was still going to go on her pilgrimages

"Sometimes the difference between depression and "getting on with it" or between the definition of defeat and redefining triumph is not in the life we live or the life we have but in the way we tell ourselves the narrative of that very same life. Nothing changes but the narrative.

I have thought a lot about this lately.

I recently faced some truths about myself and my life and made a choice to take an action and attempt to do the next right thing.

But at first it truly depressed me - deeply so - until I realized I wasn't telling myself the right narrative about it all.

I decided that I should apply for Section 8 Senior Housing here in Hudson because my financial situation demanded it of me. It was a solution. So I filled out all the forms and applied and was approved. But sitting at my desk and staring at the documentation what I saw was the documenting of a failed life in so many ways. I was a poor old single white man finding a way to get by in my final years. It saddened me even as I knew gratitude awaited if I got approved. I might have to grub around for it but I would find the gratitude. I had recently visited a friend who lived in Providence Hall - the senior apartments here in Hudson - and the apartment was serviceable - even lovely in the way this person had arranged it - and the person paid under $100 a month for rent. But sitting at my desk that day staring at those applications I felt such defeat. Depression indeed set in.

Finally however instead of telling myself the narrative of a failed life I told myself the narrative of a freed one. I would find freedom if I downsized yet again in my life and moved into such a place. It would give me the freedom perhaps to live in London for several months of the year. My dream is to be there 6 months and here six months. Such a move would perhaps enable that. So I told myself that narrative instead: London and life lived in a new way. It would also maybe give me a narrative to write in the form of a book.

I bucked up. I snapped out of it. I began to look forward to a life lived in a new way yet again.

Last week I found out that I will be moving up to #3 on the list to move in to an apartment there in Providence Hall. It was becoming more real - not just a narrative I was telling myself. Depression beckoned but I did not heed its call. I focused on freedom.

And then this week, the narrative of my life took another surprising turn. A rather sharp one. I am still processing this new chapter that unfolded while I was busy telling myself the other narrative. Sometimes life itself takes on a life of its own.

I will write more about this in the days to come.

Now the move has been complicated with a plot twist.

One thing I've learned in my 65 years is this: Who the fuck knows what each day will bring. Wake up and make the most of the one that lies ahead of you. I know as a writer sometimes how a story takes over and begins to tell itself. Whose narrative is this finally? I am often told that there is our plan and then there is God's plan. Sometimes we just have to surrender and see where a greater narrative has been taking us all along. My tiny little narrative is tucked into that greater one.



Bake a cake.

Give it away.

Pay kindness forward.

Acknowledge the power of narrative in one's life. It's there telling you the story you then can tell yourself. Listen to its voice before you listen to your own. Then harness the harmony into that combined voice that carries you forth with, yes, a bit of fear but a reliance too on fate and faith and a what-the-fuck sense of wonder. Never misplace what-the-fuck. Never lose wonder.

Keep moving forward.


Only onward."

So you see. Section 8 but live in London half the year. Someone obviously gave him a reality check that it's not how it works.

Did she ever offer an explanation of what happens over at Grazia? She tends to just pass over the full story of major failings. I assume they got tired of her act pretty quickly and realized she was not worth keeping employed.

How does she still receive press passes though? She must be lying somehow to get them because operating a personal Substack does. It count as doing press work. It’s vanity journaling. They have rebranded “blogging” as having a Substack.

As you can see in R316 re-post, his writing has truly slipped when you compare that with some of the drivel he has pumped out lately. It really makes one wonder about his brain health. He really passed up a great deal when he dropped the ball on that apartment. I am sure it was mostly about vanity i.e. what people would say. That is why he had to call his old apartment in Hudson a LOFT. So chic! So NYC! I mean, he could have hopped on a train to NYC from his $100 a month perfectly fine apartment to soak up all the culture he could ever want. It really shows who the real Kevin Sessums is, deep down.

by Anonymousreply 319May 18, 2023 6:00 PM

If the Section 8 housing was $700/mo, that means he was making (or rather, admitting to) an annual income then of about $23,000: Section 8 housing requires you to pay 30% of gross income. If that’s still his income, $2000 a month ain’t much money to live in Hudson let alone London and Paris.

New York State’s definition of poverty and thus eligibility for subsidized housing means an income of a bit less than $34,000 a year. Even that much isn’t a lot of money to spend flaneuring in London and Paris.

I have no idea what meth costs, but if he’s still using…and generous as they are, New York won’t buy your meth for you at 70% off.

But my sister loves her spot over at St. Bede's, proving what we already knew: it is a more welcoming place for a Christian and loving lesbian in town to be of service. My friend messaged back that he loves lifesavers - especially the red ones. So i sent him this everything connects photo of me with ours. Karole used it today to run her many errands before taking us to lunch and paying a visit to my friend Nelly at her gallery and getting ice cream cones.

"I have to go deliver this baby," he said. She got the second out. As she was working on the third and hardest one, he Facetimed back. "okay, i delivered it, " he said focusing again on my knee but she was already snipping and pulling the last suture free. it was rather surreal yet also deeply movingly sweetly real - we three sessums children coming together in such a moment. Yes, i am lucky to have a nurse and doctor as siblings but i am even more grateful to have these two remarkable people in my life who have rallied to my side while respecting the decisions i have been making when some have not been those they would have made. they are both so skillful in their own specific ways but their greatest skill is unconditional love. Watching them work together on my knee was one of the most absurdly grace-filled moments in my life. it was the makeshift moment when i felt the healing shift from being about my shoulder and knee to something deeper, a big brother's profound love for a little brother and little sister and how we three orphaned kids - so very different living distances apart as adults all in our 60s now - have found our way back to helping each other heal from the emotional trauma of our childhood by using the excuse of helping me heal from a physical trauma i have suffered. Suffer little children to come unto me, someone once said who is talked about a lot at St. Bede's and St. Anne's. We three suffering little children - through my suffering body - came unto ourselves today. i think i have been waiting for this painful, healing absurdly graceful moment all my life. and then we laughed"

This is so much over the top made-up bullshit. First of all, no nurse ever gets "a bit rusty" regarding removing sutures. They are fucking sutures. All THREE of them required Facetiming?

I have personally removed a dozen sutures from one hand with my less dominant hand with an exacto blade and a pair of needle nosed plyers.

One thing I don't blame Sesshie for, is his abhorence of having to live in Section 8 elder housing. I get why he ran away from that shit, even if it might have been the best/safest thing for him to do.

Who the fuck wants to live around a bunch of old poor people? It's one of my great fears, too.

For that matter, I don't have any desire to have to potentially live around ANY old people even as I become one. I don't like old people and never have....they're boring and annoying. And, old.

Even if I had a shit ton of money and could live in nice senior housing it would still mean being surrounded by fossils who enjoy watching Wheel of Fortune and wearing ugly ass clothes and playing bingo in the rec room.

So he basically thinks his sister has the right to take up space on someone’s (St Anne’s) private property. It’s naive that the Episcopal church down the road allowed that but no one is obligated to do so. Perhaps the Catholic Church needs the space more than the Episcopal Church does, or whatever. His sense of entitlement is grotesque. This is basically his world view in a nutshell. “You owe me.”

You don’t “heal” from “emotional trauma” — especially something as devastating as losing both parents as a kid.

This current voguish paradigm of somehow magically finally “fixing” what is broken within you is utter BS. You simply learn to face reality, deal with reality, and live with reality.

Constantly bringing, up and thereby luxuriating in, your psychic wounds is the very opposite of that — and the very opposite of “onward.”

R353, I would LOVE to get a spot in senior housing, my aunt was pushed out of her home by her ex and a divorce agreement, and living with a friend until she could find housing. This became precarious when the friend’s husband died, and she was offered to sell the house. My anunt only recently landed senior housing after two years of looking. We all pay into this housing with taxes and is much needed- theres no shame for those that really need it because they were shoved off course of prudent financial planing by someone else, untenable situations they have no control over, or being deliberately scammed or taken advantage of.

At 53, one of the things that absolutely terrified me is not having a stable living situation in old age watching other’s rent go up hundreds of dollars a month. I had a weird situation during the pandemic I went through, a corporate landlord absolutely refused to renew our lease because of our newly acquired third dog. We spent months looking for a new place that would accept us, were approved, and when we moved in, mentioned offhandedly to the realtor that we’d be interested in buying in the same complex.

Two months later, the owner of our condo was going through a nasty divorce, and called and asked if we’d be interested in purchasing another condo he owned next door after a buyer financing fell apart- he had already haggled the price Dow as well . We went over to look at it and ten minutes later made an offer.

The mortgage and HOA is just under $1000, and I thank God for that little dog every day! We would’ve never moved without him and be paying twice the rent today.

Approximately $40000 over 10-months...

[quote]Maloney paid Sessums, who did not return a request for comment, roughly $3,000 a month in taxpayer funds, allowing his husband's "old friend" to pocket nearly $40,000 during the 10-month gig. Sessums wrote a daily column for his magazine as he collected the taxpayer-funded cash—in some of those columns, Sessums detailed personal travel to New Orleans, Mississippi, and London on days in which the House was in session.

[quote]Sessums's job in Maloney's office was his first in politics—prior to his role as an apparently part-time House staffer, Sessums interviewed A-list celebrities as a Vanity Fair writer, a job he lost after a falling-out with his editor that led to "a long descent into substance abuse, followed by unemployment and a time on food stamps," according to the New York Times. Sessums went on to work as an editor for FourTwoNine magazine before launching his own publication.

[quote]Maloney spokeswoman Mia Ehrenberg said Sessums "worked as a communication staffer" and offered no further details on his responsibilities. She acknowledged Sessums "had a personal project separate from his House employment."

"Yesterday, Ali MacGraw and i were resting sitting on a log in the shade in Madrid, New Mexico, while the others in our little tribe were off having a silly adventure. She asked me about my own acting days when i attended Juilliard's Drama Division and the few years afterward when i was an actor. We got to talking about one of the productions of Equus i did at Theatre of the Stars in Atlanta. James Daly - father of Tyne and Tim - was supposed to play Dr. Dysart to my Alan Strang but injured his back and suggested George Maharis replace him which he did. Ali and I ended up talking about George for a bit - I hardly ever talk about him - and i even mentioned that the last time i talked about him was long ago with Edward Albee who told me that George gave one of the greatest stage performances he'd still ever seen in the original off-Broadway production of Edward's "Zoo Story."

l got home a few hours later and pulled up the NY Times and suddenly saw this obit. Another Heightened Coincidence. i sent it to Ali who was shocked by how heightened and coincidental it was but said she was getting used to such occurrences hanging out with me.

I honestly think Santa Fe was good for our Sesshie. My guess about Ali and Jeffrey is that they're both in recovery (we know Ali is), and saw in Sesshie someone who is really living on the edge and about to pop off, so they decided to join forces and show him some care and stability. And wash his filthy drawers. And the sister really went above and beyond. If I gave a hoot about this clown, I'd suggest he just stay there. If the shed he's in isn't available he could get some sad little casita and have the support of A&J, and his nephew in Albuquerque. At the same time, the likely reason Ali and Jeffrey were so generous with their time may have to do with the fact that they knew it was a temporary arrangement. Sesshie is leaving tomorrow, and not coming back until next summer. (In case you missed it, he announced yesterday his intention to spend June and July of next year in Santa Fe. I think that is... very optimistic of him.) So it was a short term commitment. They knew that eventually they could take a deep breath through their noses and not pass out from the stench.

So he's off to San Francisco tomorrow. A San Francisco that is very different city than the one he lived in pre-pandemic. It's not the wasteland that Fox News would have you believe, but it's not at its best right now either. And there was something about being in Nowheresville, New Mexico that suited him. He acted like he was too good for all of this -- the first day in he visited his sister's RV he said something like, "I never imagined I would spend an afternoon is such a manner!" Please, Gladys.

I have the distinct impression that Ms. Sissy will trip and break another shoulder while traveling the Camino America. Probably way down South in the French Quarter, or even Uptown-- our streets and sidewalks are treacherous. At least she'll have family nearby. Good surgeons, not so much.

Okay, first of all… woof! This bedroom is a disaster. It’s as if Helen Keller said, “I have a vision.” LOL, just kidding. She said, “I’m blind and can’t see shit. Let me decorate this bedroom and someday a repulsive stanky clown will plant his filthy spit-bath ass here and stink the joint up.”

To which I say, Helen, you are a visionary and Sesshie is a sniveling little bitch.

Second of all, it’s Presidio Heights you pretentious little creep, not “Pac Heights.”

I have to stop myself from overusing "cadge" to describe his walks by old haunts at about lunchtime to maybe land a coffee and pastry or a proper meal. There was a huge magazine article years ago about the deposed Windsors living in Paris and combing the morning Ship Arrivals columns for Midwestern dime store millionaires who might be invited to the Ritz for lunch but always left as though they had extended the invitation, paying the bill of the famous tightwad grifters. A ghastly expensive lunch, bottles of good wine, and maybe some cash to cover a sum owed the chauffeur for cash he fronted to the duke, always with an empty wallet.

But there's no cachet here of having been fleeced by slick royalty, though. This one is just some gummy, sputtering addict Uncle Fester In Black Turtleneck has-been, bridges-burned former celebrity journalist. No chance of turning the story around for a laugh when it's this smelly creep in ladies' frocks angling for some Blackglama photo moment, just any excuse to scurry off and have a hose down at home.

by Anonymousreply 476June 2, 2023 11:52 PM

What's he getting away with, R476? Self-deception for the most part I would say, and that's the dark humor of it, carrying on as if he were some grandee on a social tour through the provinces.

The ticket office staff at theatres and performance venues have lax verification standards. They must be instructed to offer two complimentary to anyone with an even half plausible request. And they don't press too hard for the details of circulation and readership. His good luck. I suppose we could all try it and say we are regional scouts for his important publishing venue

Old boyfriends and "dear friends" from years past find time to host him for a quick lunch but not to host him in a spare bedroom. It's seen as a sort of obligation, maybe, though further or more frequent obligations seldom seem forthcoming.

Various agents pose in gritted teeth smile selfies and are not mentioned again. An ex movie star buys him some lunches. Some friend from years ago in San Francisco feels bad for all his gory photos of his tube stairs tumble and offers a guest room.

It's stupid, all of this flying about in the U.S., costly and imprudent for someone with little money, but what's he really getting away with? The worst he's done is cornered barristas and shop clerks as creepy "new friends." The people who know him, family included it seems, try to maintain a distance and limited contact.

Sure he's bagged a pair of eye glass frame from a manufacturer by more or less out and out begging, but I didn't seeing him with steamer trunks from Dior. The list of luxurious gifts is no doubt disappointingly small. Even his FB "family" are a little slow these days to shifts a feed $€£ his way for the unrelenting hints: debating another frock!

Outside if those theatre press tickets if you like, it's an incredible amount of work in the self-delusion department with a reward that barely tops the value of a Laurel, Mississippi high school reunion S.W.A.G. bag.

I saw he deserves his very slim reward for the larger comedy he provides his secondary audience.

Oof. That picture he just posted of himself with the woman who is hosting him. I don't know who looks more uncomfortable. And for those of you who knew this clown back in the day, you know he hates women. If I were a shrink I would likely draw a line from when his mother died (and he's told us he thinks she died on purpose, out of spite, or weakness or whatever.) So just imagine being in Sesshie's shoes right now. 90% of his Facebook fans are pathetic fraus who he would detest IRL, but he has to pretend to care about to keep his grift going. Same with his current hostess, JR.

I agree with R477. What's he getting away with exactly? He's just wedging himself into a situation where he ends up feeling beholden to someone he detests. But I guess we can all rejoice that he can actually take a shower now instead of a "spit bath." Whether he actually will or not is anyone's guess.
