So, it's kind of like a Delusional-Rape Kit?

Psst, hey Arthur, just a mathematical reminder of how you weren't "the star" of the Philly Mag issue you were in ...
The story that I wrote in Philly Mag, I hear from well-placed but unnamed sources, is making minced meat of one Art Kade, even though he was blushing about it as being an indication of his looming fame. Guess he's one notch under a guy who got ran over by a car, huh?

Unfortunately, I'm not interested in spending a life in the background of three-second portions of movies. But casting directors, if you can do just one thing for me: Strip Kade of even his $70-a-day appearances. It'd make your lives ball-ass hot-ass worthwhile.
(Oh, and that Metro article, Kade? Yeah, it was a monthly recap of the stories in Philly Mag. So, really, they had no choice. Just like the rest of us who wish you'd just go the fuck away.)

Doesn't it ever get boring for him? He's so into himself...doesn't it ever get old?
He's just empty. And lispy.

It sure doesn't seem like it. I mean, fuck, if I had eight years of therapy under my belt, I'd expect to be entirely self-aware. I'd expect to also have the wisdom to wonder what people think about me, and have alarms go off when I fly off the grid, so to speak.
There's nothing, absolutely nothing, that indicates that he doesn't believe his own fantasies. It's getting to the point now where I think law enforcement might have to get involved before he climbs the Comcast Tower with an AR-15 to go out with 100 bangs.

Kekeke! That image made me chuckle.
People like that never get it. I'm sorry if this has been listed before but narcissistic personality disorder is defined by the following traits:
1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance
2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love (megalomania)
3. Believes they are "special" and can only be understood by, or should associate with, people (or institutions) who are also "special" or of high status
4. Requires excessive admiration
5. Has a sense of entitlement
6. Is interpersonally exploitative
7. Lacks empathy
8. Is often envious of others or believes others are envious of him or her
9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

Well, I'm no shrink, but it looks like 9-for-9 to me!
