. community —

I am dying so please supporting my art.

Dear Beloved.



This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met.
I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains.As you read this,
I don't want you to feel sorry for me,because, I believe everyone will die someday.
My name is Mr steven read an artist in colorado, but taking treatment now .


I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal cancer that was discovered very
late due to my laxity in caring for my health and making so much god damn art all the time. It has defiled all form of medicine and right now, I have only about a few months to live according to medical curators.
I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone
not even myself but my art. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I
was always hostile to people and only focus on my art as that was the only
thing I cared for.But now I regret all chance to come to this world I would live
my life a different way from how I have lived it.


Now that I know my time is near, I have willed and given most of my properties and art
assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends.I
have decided to give art to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of
the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed arts to some charity
organizations in the U.A.E, London and Ireland.


Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self
anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my art studios and donate
the arte, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria, they refused
and kept the art to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem
not to be contended with what i have left for them. The last of my art which is
the huge art deposit that i have with a Security/Finance Firm Abroad which is also
an affliate of a chelsea gallery.


I will want you to help me collect this art deposit and dispatched it to art organizations and let them know that it is I steven x. Read that is making this generous donation.I
am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait for my time
to come. I pray for you to support and assist me with good heart.




Bless You Beloved In Christ.

Death is not.

We at Rhizome don't appreciate this sort of material. We already know about your massive netty art hacking stylez, but this death-bed-spam-art is just absolute crapz. We know youz been shamelessly self-promoting and hacking your way into blogs and museums for years and years and years and years and years, way before these new kidz on the blockz. We know you hacked so much fucking spam art that Google pushed your sorry ass blogz way down the stackz. We even know you art is so good your stylez were recently plagiarizedz on Nasty Nets. We know your shit is so damn manipula-fresh that its virtually unbloggable. So we officially ask you to leave this community if you continue with this shit dude, please.

Is MANIK part of what you call ‘we’ (on Rhizome)?
MANIK don’t want to be ‘us’ on Rhizome because you have no right to usurp nobody’s name in your clash with somebody.

We already know about your massive netty art hacking stylez, but this death-bed-spam-art is just absolute crapz.

MANIK believe in Mr. Steve OR Steven story and give shit about his die. We expect you to help us (us, live people) instead to argue with death.”Let young death bury old death!”

We know youz been shamelessly self-promoting and hacking your way into blogs and museums for years and years and years and years and years, way before these new kidz on the blockz.

Is that something what insults your taste, your sense for universal harmony? Is his ‘death’ something painful for you…Is his ‘crapz’ something you can’t stand .If is it …Why?
MANIK don’t care for ‘OR’s crapz.We find that funny considered our situation right here,on the streetzzz…y,”on the blokzzz…”in Belgrade your country ruin like piece of shitzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
What’s your problem Miss Moss…Something intimacy?
Please change your sanitary NAPKINZZZ somewhere else. We are sick of people like you who live comfortable and spread lectionz around.

We know you hacked so much fucking spam art that Google pushed your sorry ass blogz way down the stackz. We even know you art is so good your stylez were recently plagiarizedz on Nasty Nets. We know your shit is so damn manipula-fresh that its virtually unbloggable. So we officially ask you to leave this community if you continue with this shit dude, please.

MANIK didn’t know any of those factzzz you mentioned. Is that meaning MANIK’s ignorant?
You talking to us? If ‘we’ are part of ‘we’ from rhizome as you said before that mean you considered MANIK as stupid and uninformed?
Shame on you!

MANIK and others,

Please note that the first two comments ("Joe Edit" and "Ceci Moss") on this thread were actually posted by Steve. If you click on the names, they all return to his profile.

Cheers,

IS THAT SOMETHING SEXUAL?
IS THAT RASCISM?
IS IT FOR HILARY AND AGAINST OBAMA?
IS THAT SOMETHING AGAINST SHIPTARS?

death on the web, by being removed from search engines

death on tv as a show

death that we're constantly separating from, in perception

we're hooked on medicines, vitamins, antibiotics, fitness centers, surgery, genetically modified stuff, biotech, nanotech, no wrinkles, new noses and nice clothes

Yes I too have submitted paypal payment to this Steven Read fund but I am not so sure this is a scam or not I have a feeling I was ripped off in the name of 'art'. Anyone else have any insight or knowledge of this person? Please email me thanks. If I was indeed tricked you can be sure there will be repercussions. His art career will be history.
