Index 03 - by Tal Meta (Yes, by Tal Meta!) First off, I'd like to say that I'm not dead. But Allah knows I'm damn'd tired! Between getting married back on May 14th, shopping for the baby-to- come, and shopping for a house to live in, I've had a busy summer. My "staff" has seen some additions, losses, and changes, but I imagine we'll be going strong for quite awhile yet! Filename : TANJ-061.ARJ File size : 5,284 bytes Description : Throckmorton Of Amber 01 Written By : Tal Meta Date Released : 01-17-93 I actually wrote this story several years ago on a grimy Amstrad PCW. Most all of what is portrayed in this story actually happened during an AD&D campaign I played in while I was in the Air Force. Filename : TANJ-062.ARJ File size : 15,328 bytes Description : Not Necessarily The Evening News Written By : An Assortment Of Authors Date Released : 01-21-93 This file was compiled over the course of several weeks by as many as half a dozen authors. For anyone who cares, Ned Copper greatly resembles a certain editor-in-chief.... Filename : TANJ-063.ARJ File size : 4,735 bytes Description : Going Crazy In The Suburbs 06: Changing Values Written By : Hairy Leech Date Released : 01-25-93 This file pretty much marked the end, I think, of Hairy's writing much of anything. He's said, on and off, that he'd written things he wanted me to have, but he never seems to get them to me. Which is a shame, as his life has changed so much in the year + since he wrote this. I, for one would like to see how much affect its had on his style. Filename : TANJ-064.ARJ File size : 18,059 bytes Description : Phreak Encounter Written By : Roger Macbride Allen Date Released : 02-07-93 What can I say... I liked it, so I had someone scan it. One never really knows what most sysops look like anyway... :) Filename : TANJ-065.ARJ File size : 7,736 bytes Description : Rage Of Angels Written By : Tal Meta Date Released : 02-07-93 I kinda liked this one, as it gave me an excellent vent for my own personal distaste for religion in general and Christianity in particular. Filename : TANJ-066.ARJ File size : 10,419 bytes Description : Blood Lust 03: The Marriage Written By : Anonymous Bosch Date Released : 03-11-93 Anonymous was very, very happy to get this file written, as he'd wanted to kill his main character off since chapter two. Having pretty much depleted his interest in them, but had promised a trilogy. So he turned the premise sideways, wrote it from a female perspective, and grossed out a whole other side of the BBS community.... Filename : TANJ-067.ARJ File size : 5,729 bytes Description : Offramp To Hell Written By : Tal Meta Date Released : 03-22-93 This file owed its birth to a guy calling himself Puppet Master. He submitted a file that wasn't quite what I look for in a TANJ, so I suggested some "improvements". He never resubmitted, so I wrote the file myself. Filename : TANJ-068.ARJ File size : 6,285 bytes Description : Poetry Interlude 05 Written By : The Ac908 Poets Society Date Released : 04-21-93 I really, really have nothing to say about this file. It had poetry in it, I remember that much. :) Filename : TANJ-069.ARJ File size : 5,305 bytes Description : Vanity, Thy Name Is Woman Written By : Tal Meta Date Released : 05-26-93 Long, long ago I threatened to write a "retrospective" about a certain relationship. The person in question responded by assuming that every TANJ file ever written was full of "malicious lies" about her. Well, she can be certain of one thing at least... TANJ.069 was MOST DEFINITELY written about her! I hope she's happy now. Filename : TANJ-070.ARJ File size : 24,373 bytes Description : The Road Not Taken Written By : Eric G. Iverson Date Released : 05-31-93 Another file I liked so much I had it scanned. Filename : TANJ-071.ARJ File size : 6,476 bytes Description : Poetry Interlude 06 Written By : The Ac908 Poets Society Date Released : 07-09-93 More poetry. Filename : TANJ-072.ARJ File size : 4,612 bytes Description : Why Computers Are Better Than Women / Bumper Snickers Written By : Kel'anth & Scooter ][ Date Released : 7-20-93 Kel'anth's last file before he rose off to college. Filename : TANJ-073.ARJ File size : 7,207 bytes Description : Retrospection Written By : Agnostic Messiah Date Released : 08-25-93 Agnostic didn't go off to college, but he did pretty much drop out of the general BBS scene after writing this. Filename : TANJ-074.ARJ File size : 5,758 bytes Description : Her Written By : Tal Meta Date Released : 08-25-93 Little did I know when I wrote this file that the person it was about would come gliding back into my life a few DAYS later. I made damned sure she got a piece of _MY_ wedding cake. We're good friends now... since its all we can be. Filename : TANJ-075.ARJ File size : 8,704 bytes Description : Blood Lust 2 -Stalking Buffy Written By : Anonymous Bosch Date Released : 08-31-93 Anonymous sent me this for my birthday... I had been moderating ChateauNet's VAMPIRE echomail conference, and some female calling herself Buffy the Vampire Slayer had been making a royal mess of the echo. So Anonymous (ever the lurking reader) wrote this little tfile to show her just how annoying _HE_ could be. Filename : TANJ-076.ARJ File size : 4,396 bytes Description : Blood Lust 1 -A Victims Story Written By : Metonymous Bosch Date Released : 11-18-93 I never, ever suspected that anyone besides Anonymous would want to write "BloodLust" stories. So imagine my suprise when his SISTER chimed in with a submission! Somehow, I imagine their formative years as something straight out of _The Addams Family_.... Filename : TANJ-077.ARJ File size : 10,553 bytes Description : Poetry Interlude 06 Written By : The Ac908/Ac215 Poets Society Date Released : 11-22-93 This poetry file includes Angelique's first "official" contribution to TANJ. Her poetry was featured in TANJ's first poetry issue, but that was done entirely without her knowlege. (and yes, she has since read the file) Filename : TANJ-078.ARJ File size : 8,007 bytes Description : The Gift Of The Maga Written By : Ace Lightning Date Released : 11-25-93 Ace's first contribution to TANJ was 1993's only "Holidays" file, marking a change from last season's "killer christmas" motif. Filename : TANJ-079.ARJ File size : 5,002 bytes Description : To Sleep, Perchance To Dream... Written By : Tal Meta Date Released : 01-10-94 This file is actually about six months worth of collected dream fragments, blended together to make some kind of sense. I may or may not be releasing a sequel to this one... I'm not sure if Tom Hanks committing suicide in my driveway belongs here or in a "BloodLust" file, though. Filename : TANJ-080.ARJ File size : 3,593 bytes Description : "To Protect And Serve" Written By : Public Enemy #3 Date Released : 01-30-94 This file, written by Ace's 14 year old son, is amusing if only because several weeks before he submitted it he threatened to have me arrested and prosecuted for having published the "BloodLust" series of Tfiles. Threats like this amuse me greatly, especially when I quote the First Amendment back at the threateners.... Filename : TANJ-081.ARJ File size : 7,114 bytes Description : Eulogy Written By : Lazarus Long (actually by Tal Meta, you silly people!) Date Released : 03-18-94 This file came to me one afternoon.... the first draft was too obviously a joke, so I "serioused" it up enough to be convincing. Since its release, I've gotten consolation messages, confused messages, and people calling me Derf for not having warned them it was all a lie. Heh! Filename : TANJ-082.ARJ File size : 4,310 bytes Description : Free & Dominate Written By : Dirk Gently Date Released : 04-23-94 Ace highly recommended this young man to me, and I wasn't disappointed. I'm really looking forward to his next submission (hint, hint). Filename : TANJ-083.ARJ File size : 6,180 bytes Description : Don't Fuck With Misogynist Unix Hackers Written By : Frank Oz Date Released : 05-21-94 This file is not available in Australia, due to thier curious customs concerning libel & defamation of character. :) This also marked the first of what is sure to be numerous submissions from Down Under. Filename : TANJ-084.ARJ File size : 4,433 bytes Description : Hell Is A Banjo Written By : Black Rose Date Released : 06-19-94 An excellent file by the E-I-C of Moose Magazine. To return the compliment I'll be releasing a Moose file of my own REAL SOON NOW.... :) Filename : TANJ-085.ARJ File size : 7,150 bytes Description : Live And Let Die Written By : Arifel Date Released : 06-19-94 I found out after the fact that this file should have had a different title, but what the hell... the one I gave it works well enough, I think. Written to be "compatable" with the BloodLust(tm) files, it actually is far less gory. Filename : TANJ-086.ARJ File size : 7,606 bytes Description : Date With An Angel Written By : Dava Date Released : 06-23-94 This one really should be read to music. Pick something soft, melodic, and preferably nostalgic. I won't mention what song I had playing, as that particular 70's duo hardly matches my "image". Filename : TANJ-087.ARJ File size : 9,454 bytes Description : How To Destroy A Network Written By : Joseph Elkhorne Date Released : 07-03-94 An interesting tale of mismanagement in Saudi Arabia. I've been there. Having seen the way those people drive, I found this file to be frighteningly reminiscent. Radio techs based here in the US assure me that this sort of nonsense happens here, too. Filename : TANJ-088.ARJ File size : 10,387 bytes Description : This Week In Job Interviews Written By : Arifel Date Released : 07/08/94 This started out as a series of posts in GodNet's alt.dubious echomail conference. I liked it so much I asked for permission to reorganize it. Filename : TANJ-089.ARJ File size : 12,005 bytes Description : Cestoda 01 Written By : The Collective Date Released : 07/22/94 This file reminds me of BloodLust(tm) more than anything anyone else has written. Even though nobody has a knife, or even sheds any blood, it makes me think of things written to make people FEEL. Something, somewhere in this story is certain to give someone nausea.... Which is why I liked it. :) Filename : TANJ-090.ARJ File size : 5,518 bytes Description : T.A.N.J. Index 03 Written By : Tal Meta Date Released : 08/14/94 This file right here! --- There, I've gone and done it... released TANJ-90. Now I can release the 2-3 files sitting in my -process- bin and start the drive towards TANJ-100! ۲ ݲ۱ ۲ ۲ ۲ ۲ ۲ Phoenix Modernz Systems: 908/830-TANJ ۲ The Syndicate: 908/506-6892 ۲ VapourWare BBS: 61/3-429-8510 ۲ Yellow Submarine: 404/552-5336 ۲ ۱ Urban Discipline / VaS World HQ : 313/464-1470 ۲ ۱ RipCo ][: 312/528-5020 ۲ ۲ ۲ ۲ ۲ ͸ ۲ TANJ Mailing Address ۲ PO Box 174 ۲ Seaside Hts, NJ ۲ 08751 ۲ ۲ ; ݲ۱ tanj@pms.metronj.org
