    What was the answer of Stephen from some woman out of the audience when she said she never had a good time in school? Something with when you have had good times in school then you are 'f**ked up' he answered?? Do you remember the exact question and answer? By the way, I was the person when the interview come to the 'dark tower' theme and I shouted 'More, More of that!"
  2. Actually I think should get my whole face checked. hehe

    Thanks, everyone.

    I don't remember the exact question, I think the lady was nervous in the beginning, I was getting nervous that she wouldn't be able to finish asking. She ended up asking what he thought about being an inspiration for new authors, and seeing them published, didn't she? But I do recall that Mr. King answered that anyone who had a good time in high school are probably f**ked up.
    I so wanted to ask my question about working with Peter Straub for The Talisman and Black House. I hope that I will someday find out how this process worked.

    It's ever a kind of funny to watch into a american forum, media what-ever, because it's ever (self-)censored, the 'bad' 'f'-word never is written out.
    In the last week the german entertainer Stefan Raab made his show in New York because of the super-bowl, the tv-station Pro7 where the Stefan Raab Show is broadcasted that also broadcasted live the super-bowl. Now Stefan Raab had Ice-T and his wife in the show, and Ice-T told that his songs are never uncensored in american medias published. Stefan answered 'we ever can say what we like, we have the freedom of speech'

    So it's possible that for example this lyrics from the Toten Hosen can be published uncensored, Hofgarten is the central Park of Düsseldorf

    "Last Sunday morning
    I tramp through the Hofgarten.
    Half six -
    I must see under the bushes?

    ****, bonk, Blowjob,
    everything on the lawn."

    This song was published in the conservative times in the 80s. Today there are more in tv-program the 'bad' f-word is peeped out! So it can be say that in the obviously liberal times the tv-stations/medias make it like the american, they make self-censor. That's a kind of crazy!

    @lisey where are you from?

    I am from Norway, but I have lived in North Germany (Flensburg) for a little over 3 years now, it is quite far from where you live, I think.

    I was thinking about what you write here myself today. I watched Marilyn Manson's "The New S**t", and I realized he could say "violence" and "sex", but he had to exchange the word "sh*t" for "hit". I don't get it at all, but I guess it's the laws that make it so.
    I didn't watch Stefan Raab for super bowl, though. But I like Herr Raab, he is funny.

    I live in Ruhr Area, the former biggest place for steelproduction and coalminers!
    Between **** and Hit is a little difference, but I can't find it *smile*
    For me it's no kind of morality or something like that. In fact of the contrarinesses between the selling of weapons to other countries and some years later the
    Humanitarian Cooperation into this countries, that correct the errors which are caused of the weapons. Isn't it something that makes the world go round? It helps all sides, the weapon industry/secretary of foreign affairs, the humanity industry/UNESCO/Doctors without borders,
    sorry for that but sarcasm is the only thing that helps me not to drown.

    Stefan Raab is a kind of funny, but my first priority is on political/sociable cabaret. That helps perhaps some politican to look into the mirror without mask.

    @stoppoker, we ask that people self censor with their language on the MB as we have younger members viewing the pages and so prefer to err on the side of caution. Thanks. :)

    @FlakeNoir My comment is a general statement, not mostly obtained on this forum, but I'm not sure if I understand your answer, I translated it to german, but it will not be clearer for me. Do you mean the question if the people make self censor or not depends on which language/accentuation they use? The second part of the answer, what do you wanna say, I don't understand at all the meaning of it.

    My last comment to you was in response to your use of the "f-word" in one of your previous posts. What I was trying to say was that we prefer that people posting to the message board censor themselves (eg: "f**k") when they feel the need to include swearing/cuss/curse words in their messages. We do this because we also have children/young people using the website. :)

    I don't think he wants to know what MY mom thought of his books. She forbade us to bring one of those "horrorbooks" into her house while she's paying the mortgage, so I didn't get to read ANY of his books until I was in my 20's. That's the first time I felt comfortable overcoming the obstacle of her displeasure she'd thrown in my way. I knew the whole time I was reading it that she disapproved of it and that's harder to ignore and read in spite of it than you think.
    She predicted that "Stephen King and all those other horrorbook writers are a fad and it will disappear." She was unaware that H.P Lovecraft existed and didn't think Edgar Allan Poe was a 'horrorbook writer.'
    Obviously she never read the Black Cat and Telltale Heart.
    She also didn't think the book she DID bring in the house, Helter Skelter, was horror either, b/c it really happened. But I think that's WORSE terror than anything a horror writer could think of, ESPECIALLY since it all happened the way the book started relating it. She caught me reading the first chapter of Helter Skelter and she hid the book from me. I was 13.

    It sounds like your Mom was a bit of hypocrite to read "Helter Skelter" but not allow Stephen King. I am sorry to hear you had to wait so long before reading his work.
