Sante Fe: You in Danger, Gurl

A certain itinerant sketchy pilgrim has blown into town.

Kevin Sessums is an asshole, but he is a human asshole who isn't famous enough to be incessantly stalked here, have accidents and ill health wished on him, and to have his health problems mocked.

Once upon a time, nestled amidst the golden wheat fields of Saskatchewan, lived a young fellow named Kevin Sessums. Unlike others who dreamt of wrangling cattle or unearthing dinosaur bones, Kevin yearned for words. He’d spend hours weaving tales that sparkled with wit and whimsy, his imagination a boundless prairie where characters galloped and mythical creatures roamed. One crisp morning, while exploring the vast Grasslands National Park, Kevin stumbled upon a peculiar sight – an old, leather-bound book tucked beneath a gnarled saskatoon bush. Curiosity piqued, he brushed off the dirt, revealing the inscription: ‘Tales Untold’. Intrigued, Kevin opened the book, and as he did, a whirlwind whisked him away to a fantastical land. In this land, words were not mere scribbles on a page, but living, breathing entities. Letters transformed into fantastical creatures, sentences bloomed into enchanting landscapes, and stories unfolded like magical tapestries. Kevin, with his gift for storytelling, was hailed as a hero. He befriended a wise old proverb perched on a semicolon and a mischievous group of commas who loved to play hide-and-seek amidst paragraphs. Together, they embarked on countless adventures, battling grumpy adverbs who hoarded synonyms and rescuing misplaced prepositions from the clutches of ambiguity. Kevin’s stories, filled with humor and heart, brought joy and laughter to the land. With each tale he spun, the world around him grew brighter, the colors sharper, and the characters more real. News of Kevin’s exploits reached the ears of the benevolent Queen of Syntax, who ruled over the realm of language. Recognizing Kevin’s unique talent, the Queen bestowed upon him a magical quill, crafted from a moonbeam and a shooting star. With this quill, Kevin’s stories flowed with an otherworldly grace, his words weaving spells that enchanted all who heard them. Finally, after many adventures, Kevin knew it was time to return home. The Queen, with a heavy heart, waved him goodbye, reminding him that the power of stories resided within him. Back in Saskatchewan, Kevin emerged from beneath the saskatoon bush, forever changed by his experience. He continued to write, his tales imbued with the magic of the land he had visited. His stories, filled with wonder and whimsy, became beloved by all, a testament to the power of imagination and the enduring enchantment of words.

Kevin! Kevin! Kevin Sessums!

He's sharp, he's witty, he keeps 'em guessing!

He's cultured, he's caustic, he's never stressing!

Kevin! Kevin! Kevin Sessums!

He'll take on any topic, puttin' all to the testin'!

From art to music, he sets the trends,

A champion for the downtrodden, a critic with no ends!

Kevin! Kevin! Kevin Sessums!

With a heart of gold, but a tongue that can sting,

He'll challenge your thinking, make your funny bone sing!

Kevin! Kevin!

[quote] Can someone please explain the hate for him? I get that he’s pretentious and delusional, but isn’t that 40% of all gays.

I think for me at least, it wasn't his downfall or his drug addiction or health issues. It's that he was about the meanest cunt alive back in the 1990s when he was flying high, and even now, with his #grateful and supposedly humbled persona, that same awful person comes poking through all the artifice. He fashions himself a writer, but can only write about himself, and he doesn't do that particularly well, with his alliterative nonsense and florid Southern Gothic prose. He prides himself an aesthete, but has the most pedestrian taste. There's a world of avant-garde and experimental theatre and dance in Europe and the UK, but he'll go see Sunset Boulevard five times instead. And then there is the inflated sense of self - that somehow, mere coincidences are cosmic signals of his own importance. Then, there is the disdain for his followers who try to engage with him, but he ignores them, or dismisses them with condescension. There are the endless burdens he appears to put on his far more responsible brother and sister. There is the unwillingness to take responsibility for his incredible ineptitude when traveling anywhere, which always ends in a tale of woe. There is the lecherous covert stalking and photography of young men, which will surely get him clobbered some day (and may already have). There is the outright stealing of copyrighted material for his little-read Substack. There is his not so thinly veiled racism. There is the repugnant use of the term "Jew queen" for his supposed fetish of Jewish men. His abuse of press tickets when he's not press and hasn't been so for 25 years. There's more, but I think it is enough to illustrate the fact that he is loathsome and worthy of all of the derision with which he is received here.

Once upon there were three little girls who went to the police academy. Two in Los Angeles. The other in San Francisco. And they were each assigned very hazardous duties. But I took them away from all that. And now they work for me. My name is Charlie.

by Anonymousreply 11July 10, 2024 2:32 PM

Coasts apart, their dreams collide,

Kevin Sessums by the bay, where fog does hide.

Charlie chases sunshine, palm trees sway,

Los Angeles a million miles away.

Golden Gate whispers secrets old,

Hollywood a story yet untold.

Cable cars climb, a clanging rhyme,

Freeways tangle, stealing time.

Sourdough bread and ocean breeze,

Freeway fumes and citrus trees.

Golden Gate Park, a tranquil ease,

Venice Beach, a salty tease.

Do they yearn for what they lack?

San Francisco's fog or LA's crack?

Distance whispers, soft and low,

Maybe someday, hearts will know.

Backup Kevin Sessums stalking thread because they are periodically deleted.

Honey, what have I told you about looking at Kevin. Sessums online without asking? It's not very nice, just like peeking through someone's window. We wouldn't want anyone doing that to us, would we? The internet is a big place, full of fun things to see and learn about. Why don't we find a nice game or a silly video to watch instead? There are plenty of ways to have fun online without degrading yourself.

Canadians are really quite vicious

Verse 1)

Kevin Sessums went outside today,

Ready to skip down the way.

Met some friends, from up north, eh?

But they weren't friendly, not one bit, they say!


Canadian maybe, but not so nice,

Pushing and shoving, wasn't their best advice.

Being mean, isn't very polite,

Sharing and kindness, makes everything right!

(Verse 2)

Big Bird saw what was going down,

Flew over quick, without a frown.

"Sharing is caring," Big Bird did say,

"Let's play a game, and chase the blues away!"


Canadian maybe, but not so nice,

Pushing and shoving, wasn't their best advice.

Being mean, isn't very polite,

Sharing and kindness, makes everything right!


Elmo came running, with a ball so bright,

"Catch!" he shouted, with all his might.

The Canadian friends, they started to grin,

Joining the fun, letting the happiness in!


Canadian maybe, but now so nice,

Sharing and playing, what a super surprise!

Being mean, wasn't very polite,

Sharing and kindness, makes everything right!

These threads are creepy, but addictive.

R4, awesome job but I went tl;dr 3/4 through.

Young Kevin Sessums, with stories in his head,

Lived on the prairies where wheat instead Of fame, he craved the written word,

And wove fantastical tales unheard,

One day, a book, with secrets untold,

Whisked Kevin Sessums to a land of old,

Where words were alive, a wondrous sight,

Letters danced, and stories took flight.

With proverbs wise and commas keen,

Kevin battled grumpy adverbs mean,

Rescued prepositions lost and small,

His stories brought laughter to all.

The Queen of Syntax, kind and fair,

Gave Kevin Sessums a quill, a magic rare,

His words flowed bright, a shooting star,

Enchanting all, near and far.

Returning home, his heart content,

Kevin' Sessums's tales, a wonderment,

Were filled with magic, whimsy, and light,

A testament to words' lasting might.

Do you mean Sante Kimes?

by Anonymousreply 21July 14, 2024 4:44 PM

Sante Kimes was an American criminal known as the "Dragon Lady" who was active in the latter half of the 20th century. She was involved in a number of crimes, including murder, fraud, and arson, often working alongside her son Kenneth.

Kevin Sessums is an asshole, but he is a human asshole who isn't famous enough to be incessantly stalked here, have accidents and ill health wished on him, and to have his health problems mocked.
