I Hate You, Mike Oz: Vol. 3

So Bee reader Steve liked my column this morning, but he still doesn’t think very highly of me, if this e-mail he sent is any indication:

wow! u finally wrote a decent column. who helped u with it? u ought to celebrate and have another taco fatboy.

oh, by the way, walnut creek isn’t the Bay Area.

take care loser

I don’t know what Walnut Creek has to do anything. And I’m pretty sure Steve didn’t hear that I made the 40 Under 40 list — I may have a taco in honor of that.

Melyssa (Clovs Eskimo) says:

Damn… now I want a taco.

bradley says:

Mike:

congrats on making the 40 under 40 list, you taco-loving loser.

Whiplash says:

I think it’s hilarious when people call you a loser, and use txt speak 2 do it. And yes Walnut Creek is considered the bay area. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walnut_Creek,_California

Jennifer Blair says:

Make sure you it some Cholula on that taco. Don’t hate. Participate. FLYP loves Mike Oz!

malcolm sosa says:

Dude! I didn’t know Steve Ono could be so rude! I’ll feed HIM a taco when I see him! Congrats on the 40 under 40.

Beth Bridges says:

Mike,
At least u can spell. And Capitalize. Someday you’ll have “I hate you Mike Oz – Greatest Hits” and this guy won’t be in it. He’s a minor league hater.

Congratulations on the 40 under 40!

Beth

Chris says:

Mmmmm, Tacos, Jazz Bands, Rogue, FUSE, Roller Derby, and Mike Oz.

Fresno is SWEET!

Congrats on the 40 Under 40 thing too. You were among some good company I see…

Marisa says:

DUDE, Tacos are awesome! And I think I’m going to make veggie tacos for dinner tonight in your honor!

blake says:

Dang. I’d hoped you’d link this morning’s column just to give me a chance to say how fantastic I thought it was.
I’m sort of sorry it’s in the hate mail context.

People may cut out and save articles that mention their friends, family or whatever, but I’m cutting out and saving that column from today. I think you hit on one of the core inspiring things about Fresno—it’s still not set in concrete–it’s still not fully formed–and folks can get in there and make a real difference. Thanks for putting it in words, and doing so so well.

karma says:

great article, and very true. don’t worry about the haters, you’ve got roller derby girls that have YOUR back!

see you tuesday for Kid’s Day.

marcel says:

Thanks, Mike for the kudos in your column. I am humbled because there were a bunch of folk who embraced my insanity and ran with it.

On another note: You got me salivating for tacos now and I’ll just have to get on my bike and ride down to Ranchito.

Ob another ‘nother note: Yeah, there is a pick of you from last night on my blog.

Kristy says:

Mike,

Stop giving this man attention and print space! He is not worth it! We love you man!

BYE!!!

D says:

I was going to leave a comment, but I have to go get someone to translate the mindless babbling posted by RAQUAEL to effectively retort. BRB.

D says:

I thoroughly don’t get it. AT. ALL.

ed says:

i was going to write a comment about the text speak in the email, but someone beat me to it.

and it’s funny when people just throw out random cities that you allegedly came from, when you’ve clearly identified that you originate in omaha, nebraska. (yes, i know mike is from philthadelphi, pa. wait, pittsburg, ca. damn. fremont, ca.)

but then, oh my word, timmy t’s alleged ex popped up in an all paragraph caps rant. holy cow!

Erin says:

First of all, I am so confused about “Raquael.”

Secondly, can you call someone a dick in the comments? Because Steve is a dick.

Chris says:

Wow. That comment up there harkens back to the days when MySpace was the only way anybody communicated.

There are so many things to say about it, that’s it ridiculous. It deserves a big WTF first off. I mean, who is she talking to? I looked around for another post by another Raquael and I couldn’t find the reference. So I began to wonder if she thought she was posting a Myspace comment on someone’s page, and didn’t realize she messed up until it was too late.

As far as this character Timmy T is concerned – Dickens called, and he said you can come home now.

I’m not too sure that anybody cares how old she is, or weather or not she has any kids, but I’m pretty sure that TYPING IT IN ALL CAPS isn’t making anybody want to read what she has to say.

@Raquael – You got that fools name tattooed on you? Six times? Didn’t learn a whole lot about anything growing up did you? But I’m offering my services as a tattoo artist if you want to cover them up. Take a note here folks, you curse the relationship when you get someone’s name tattooed to you (or so the story goes) but in reality you really just look like a moron for getting something so fleeting, permanently marked on your body.

Why is it that people are still crying about racism? And then posting racist remarks and words in posts? I wonder when people are going to start considering that maybe the only way to get over this ‘race war’ is to realize that it starts with themselves?

Oh, and thanks for letting us know that you really are this person you claim you are, like any of us really give a flying ….

dave says:

I love you but in a guy/buddy way

Is Raquel someone who hates you?

Lindsey says:

Wow….

Steve sounds like a douche. Can I say douche? lol
Also by his impressive use of the English language, or lack thereof, one can only assume that his IQ is comparable to that of a common fruit fly.

Don’t worry Mike, we all think you’re great. Besides, this made me crave tacos and it doesn’t get any better than that!
:)

Marisa says:

Ok, came back for a second and WHOA…

To me, Raquel’s above comment is like:

The Hypno-Toad on Futurama
Or
A Dog Whistle to a Dog
Or
“The Pinch” in Oceans 11 when it sends out that electro-magnetic pulse that shuts down the city

Some sort of brain scrambling occurs. I SO want to read the entire thing for it’s ALL CAPS AND ALL CRAZY ALL THE TIME minute details, but I get about 10 words in and I go all comatose. LOL

WOW!

mdub420 says:

in defense of Racquel….HOEZ NEED LUV TOO.

karen m. says:

Your column in today’s “7″ was so great. LOVED it. I know I’m not alone in saying that you’ve done a ton to shine a positive light on Fresno, and this place needed some brightening up. Thanks for being part of the positive.

To Steve I’d say, well, actually I wouldn’t say anything to him. I’d be busy making a toast to Mike Oz, cuz he is the cat’s meoooooow.

dave says:

RAQUEL RULES

ANYONE WITH A TATOO ON THE “BOOTY” JUST RULES

grendel20 says:

I think you’re an okay guy, Mike. Been reading you since Backtalk in the Bee, God knows how long ago.

Claire says:
