Reviews & Comments...

"I think I'd be the last person who'd want to stalk William Shatner. In fact, I want to stay away from him. His speaking style scares me. Perhaps the test answer that T. J. Hooker was "described by Nostradamus as the herald of global annihilation" is correct. This site is for people who a) want a good laugh or b) people who want to take the test seriously, and therefore need help. Abnormality: 7; Stupidity: 8; Entertainment: 8"

"Oh my gosh! this is a terrible web site! It is 100% digusting and stupid. how could you go on? I.A.G.T.S.Y.S."

"Have you been living in a hole for most of your life. Nathan's is nothing more then a fast food chain. If you were looking for ambience and fine cuisine, why even stop at a roadside place. Drive into Manhattan and eat at the Palm Club or The 21 Club. In other words get real. A food critic you're not!!!"

"Recently stumbled upon your website featuring homes decorated for Christmas in Yonkers, NY. I have a question. Why were the snowmen referred to as "Mafia Snowmen"? I live in Yonkers and am guessing that since there is a large Italian-American community it was your way of insulting that culture. Or was it a joke? If so, then please explain why there weren't any ethnic comments made about the workers and patrons in your review of Nathan's? Surely, you could have come up with a few funny jokes about them, too. Or is it okay to ridicule certain groups and wrong to make stereotypical jokes about others? PS-If you're going to be a flaming New York City liberal, then leave everyone alone. If you can't, then you're just another ignorant American."

"Wow! Did you get used and abused by Rod or something? Nothing personal and I'm not being critical of you; however, isn't Rod just being a man? And the older he gets, the more he has to prove to himself; I guess he does it by womanizing. Too bad he doesn't realize that it isn't necessary. You also have to blame the women who get involved with him. They know going in an dthey go anyway. "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread." I wonder what I would do. :-)"

"Ya know, I discovered ApeCulture about 2 years ago when there was a posting about the brit-drag-queen Marilyn that was being posted around the net. Since then, I have been an avid fan of it and can't get through a week without checking it out again and again. To say that you have the greatest sense of humor is an understatement - since the stories are having me on the verge of pissing myself from laughing so hard. So, thanks for the hysterical articles, everything from "Eight is Engouh vs. Amityville Horror" up to the Ode to Autumn [mailing list letter], which is so funny I have to send it around to my friends! The fact that you can take stuff like that as well as put together sentiments for us during 9-11 (the mix tapes you put together) is incredible. Keep up the great work. If you ever need a "cub reporter" let me know." Harry

"This is the funniest site I have ever seen. I am so happy I looked up haikus to teach a lesson plan to a group of would be teachers. I can't wait to show them the heavy metal haikus. That's good stuff! - Stephanie

"thank you forever for making me laugh and stay alive forever."

"Heavy Emotion: You don't see the haiku form used to express feelings of love very often. Usually haiku is used to express the ineffable poignancy of a given situation, and often the realm of love is highly complex, and all-too-effable, rendering it more compatible with, say, sonnets, couplets, or free verse. However, it only takes the right admixture for love to work perfectly in haiku form - and that admixture is heavy metal. Somehow, when the object of one's affection is a feathered-haired headbanger, the words just form themselves effortlessly into the elegant 5-7-5 format, producing such paeans as "My radio plays Dream On/As those lips devour me/My body quivers," or "Ozzy, leave your wife/That shrew will work you to death/I'll take care of you." Of course it all can't be puppies and hearts forever, as evidenced by some of the sourer squibs on the page - "Ronnie James Dio/Holy Diver's not bad but/You look like a troll."

"A little warped, but sweet. Be sure to check out their Kevin Spacey haikus."

"HELLO? YOU'VE REACHED STALKER CENTRAL. There is something very, very wrong with these people, and the fact that they've all found each other and are organized should strike fear into our souls. In fact, as soon as I stop laughing, I'm going to get very alarmed. Until then, I'll keep reading Ape Culture, every update, all the celebrity haikus ("I can never get back/The fifteen minutes/I crushed on Vanilla Ice"), the epic love poem to Charo ("after finishing a divine banana flambe, the lady of the house/takes to the small bamboo stage"), the poetic dueling Bill-lovers (Paxton vs. Pullman), the concert reviews ranging from Cher to Hole and everything in between, the essays in which the cast from "Eight Is Enough" encounters the plot from "Poltergeist." Weird, wonderful and certifiable, a big, fat wallow in popular culture, and an utter hoot...Don't miss it."

"The Should I Stalk William Shatner page is a riot, but don't take my word for it, just go there!...the hard truth is you probably aren't prepared or devoted enough to reap the avalanche of media attention a man who really, really, really liked William Shatner a lot would almost certainly get. Before you buy a sleeping bag, night vision goggles and bus tickets to a year's worth of Mr. Shatner's speaking engagements, take this simple quiz. It could save you a lot of time, humiliation and listening to George Takei ramble pointlessly about getting his own show while waiting for William Shatner to come on."

"Oh Captain, My Captain: So you want to stalk William Shatner. Sure, doesn't everybody? But do you have what it takes to pursue the Man Who Would Be Hooker relentlessly to the ends of the earth? Previously, you had to attend countless Star Trek conferences, read all the TekWar books, and put up with the incoherent ramblings of James Doohan to find out whether you had the mettle, but this is the future! It's 2001 gosh darn it, and we have the modern miracle that is Should I Stalk William Shatner Test. Just remember, TJ Hooker was only a phase. He was experimenting (like all teenagers do). If we can forgive the hairpiece, lord knows we can forgive that."

Re: Requiem for The Richard Bey Show
"Thanks for the astute evaluation of the Richard Bey Show. I always saw it as a performance piece satirizing American pop culture... we are all actors in this production...today even more so with shows like Survivor, Big Brother and all the court shows. The irony exists that while I shouted "Where do they find these people", we ARE these people -- from Bill Clinton to Princess Di to the guy waiting for the bus to the winner of a reality game show. The media is like 'The Matrix' today. The line between real life and commercial media encroachment becomes more fluid all the time. Now I don't think or say that Bill Clinton canceled the show...your assessment of the media feeding frenzy on talk shows is correct...it left many shows weakened...stations dropping shows or shifting them to weak time periods, sponsors dropping advertising, etc...but all evidence pointed to at least another year for us...The company threw all of the one-inch edited masters out in the dumpster this year...800 of them! Five year's worth...Now it truly is trash TV!!!"

Re: Heavy Metal Love Haikus
"Ahh...here's something to sink your teeth into, haikus written in ode to rock gods. Perverse, slobbering and downright hilarious."

"Everyone take a look at Ape Culture. Look at Joe's Ode to Tootie, who is tied for my favorite members of the Facts of Life family (tied with Blair). Kekeke. Oh yeah -- Tina was mentioned in The Temp's Corollary. And what's incredibly funny?! Apes Abroad - Japan. HAHAHA! Loose socks! Fertility Shrine! I couldn't stop myself from laughingl. Well, of course the blinds were partially open since Janet wasn't in today and the door was completely ajar since there are very few students during the summer...and hence I didn't want to laugh too loud. I was reduced to tears -- a kind of hearty deep breathing. Eeek! Waah! It was so funny! I had to really tear myself away from reading everything on the site! It was plain hilarious! LOOSE SOCKS!"

Web Guide Magazine -- For the Best Time Online, Listed in Best Rated Sites for 1999, "The most impressive sites we found in the past year." Review from 10/99: "...This e-zine attempts to make a monkey out of American pop culture -- or does it insinuate pop culture is making a monkey out of you?" 10/99

"You want some cheeky, cheesy pop culture commentary? After all, the Onion doesn't come out every day. Or maybe you're just tired of trying to be smart and reading books about Derrida and stuff. Apeculture is perfect for those who were weaned on television celebrity culture, and the ambiguous love-hate/worship relationship with it that such an upbringing engenders in anyone possessing one iota of critical conscience. Tellingly enough, the icon for this web site is the silhouette for Cornelius from 'Planet of the Apes'. Featuring such sly star-deflating concepts as bad movie reviews and concert reviews that manage to simultaneously praise and belittle rock stars and icons Ozzy, John Waite and Cher. One of the more moronically sublime features of the site is 'Love Poems to the Stars', sample couplet 'To the Fonz'. www.dolomite.net, 8/99

Re: Talkin' with Elvis Down by the Sea by Ann Cefola:
I visited the site and read your piece on Elvis.I have mentally returned to it many times. We think we know people and continue to be surprised by them. Your stream-of-consciousness style in this piece is so different from how I think of you. (very organized and businesslike). However, I was swept into the spirit of impersonation while at the same time, stood with you outside the impersonator and his act - watching. I did have some difficulty imagining you acting like a walrus. You're far too delicate for that, but then again ...You are truly a multi-faceted gem. Is the impersonator giving you management commissions? You'll probably inspire someone to hire him. p.s. A good writer always teaches something to the reader. I learned things in that article. Congratulations. Keep on being you.

"I just discovered Ape Culture and, I've got to tell you, I feel like I've come home ... in essence: Ape Culture, good. Make me feel happy inside. Yes, reading over your "zine" -- as the monosyllabic refer to it -- I chuckled many times and nodded sagely to myself in that self-congratulatory
I-get-this-and -therefore-must-be-cool sort of way that later sickens me a bit. Right away I decided I must write the editors a letter in which I sound very smart and clever and call upon the deepest resources of my vocabularic... thingy in my brain...box. Yes, I thought, I shall craft an e-mail brimming over with forced humor that makes them smile tightly while clicking delete. The slim point of this missive is I really enjoyed Ape Culture quite a bit."

Re: Divas 99, A Look Back in Anger
"So much hate for Cher. The way I heard it, Whitney hogged the whole show claiming that because she was first to sign up, she deserved it. Also, as you noted too, there were too many damn alleged divas. I thought Cher's performance of 'Turn Back Time' was great. Yes, as a long time Cher fan I was disappointed in her half singing 'Believe', but I have heard her sing it live on Letterman, Leno and in concert twice so far. To compare her to Vanilli? Geez. That sux. But you redeemed yourself with a few nice comments, too."
Thomas A. Dalesxio, 11/99

"FAT CATS: The fact that Richard Simmons is already a parody of himself hasn't stopped a generation of humorists from poking fun at the frizzy-haired fitness guru. Despite this, I've yet to see anything as downright goofy as Ape Culture's "Obese House Pets Petition Richard Simmons for Help." The piece features imaginary correspondence between a compassionate Simmons and desperate domestic animals, including "Sam, the cat with they thyroid problem,"
"Rham-Beau, the shih tzu in denial" and "Helga, mixed-up mixed breed." Before and after photos of the now-svelte pets accompany their letters."

Re: The Gentleman of Leisure's Review of Nathan's Eatery
"I visited the site and must say that I was quite upset about your review of Nathan's on Central Avenue. This fine establishment deserves nothing but the best reviews, and seems to me to be above your taste. "Limp and chewy," who are you calling limp and chewy? I bet the hard-working, diligent, and selfless employees had nothing but the highest opinion of you as you scarfed down your undeserved fare. However, the kind and forgiving employees of Nathan's would allow someone as ungrateful as you to return to their hallowed halls as soon as you print a retraction. Otherwise, you can keep your ungrateful self out of the sanctum sanctorum of haute cuisine. I am further discouraged by your unwarranted lambaste of Nathan's when there are so many other ills which our society faces, like homeopathy. You need to think before you write your next submission. P.S. I will never submit to Ape Culture! I will resist your plot to destroy the fine society in which we now live where a crucifix in urine gets more attention than the most noble of pursuits - simulated bass fishing."

Keep up the great work!"
