TEAM ROMANCE ENTRY - Epon Ymous
Title: Crazy Man Michael (Despoiling Harry Zine)
Artist: Epon Ymous rumpelstiltskin
Email: desdibujo at aol
Artist's Notes/Thank yous/Fanfiction used: This is a Zine/Art Journal made Out of my Stream of consciousness as I thought about Crazy Man Michael brilliantly written by Amanuensis, particularly the Section where Harry and his fantasy of the Half-blood Prince interact. Reading it my mind Would grasp at lines: "The memories come when he despairs / When he is at his lowest/ They slip in because he has no resistance/ The Prince's expertise/ Half-Blood all rough edges and street smarts/ An unshaven chin/ Hair / Jacket of Beat Up leather / Disreputable / slouches against a wall / Not Him / His limitations like stones uneven on his Shoulder blades / Harry / himself an empty pack / his naked heart laid open / He can do no more than succumb."
Although this Story is angst the first-born concept of the dark object of love to me is the height of romance. Harry is a young man, a teenager and His epitome of Hipness is none other Than the Half-blood Prince. I began to think about My Half-blood Prince "Roman Nervo" the boy who Symbolized coolness in my head when I was just a young thing and He was also a dark-haired Mix of James Dean, Marlon Brando, Che Guevara, Allen Ginsberg, Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Poe, Bog Dylan, Montgomery Cliff, Antonin Artaud and many, many Others. He would Change slightly depending on my Mood and sometimes He would be the leader of a commune, other Times he would be a modern Prophet, a Beat Visionary, a Poet, a Saxophone player, a common Criminal with artistic Interests, a Painter, a Sculpture, a Rent boy who I would Meet in the Venice West cafe to discuss art and Love with. He was everything I Wanted to be but Was not even In my dreams. Here Harry is a Poet/Singer, Taunter of the DE's otherwise known as the Ultra-Right, lovingly called by his Beat friends "Crazy Man Michael" because of an incident involving a monkey, a Queen and a police officer. He is always accompanied by his companion Severus Snape who is a taciturn Saxophone player with a Flair for wonderful if Incoherent soliloquies and maker of the best hallucinogens this side of the Equator. In this Zine I was Having a conversation about This with Amanuensis with how Her story reminded me So much of how I felt as a Young person and my own Concepts of the Heroic. I hope I have been successful In Conveying what I felt. Thank You v. much Amanuensis for allowing me to Use yr brilliant work of Art to make this humble tribute. Thank you to my Team and to the Mods for the valuable advice to make my little work much better.
