The return of Clarence Stately(-Holmes)


Clarence in Iraq

Clarence Stately-Holmes is the alias I used to use for my (slightly embarrassing but very fun to write) Grimewatch column in Vice where I would write about stuff like Jammer's imaginary line of night-wear for kids, Py-Jammers. Yesterday I decided to Google the name and found that as well as an a emo teen from New Zealand using it as his screen name on Bebo, by strange coincidence, there is a real-life guy called Clarence Stately. He is a US soldier who has been stationed in Iraq, he seems to love Halo 3 and Silent Hill and we are now best mates on Facebook. He is currently back at home but has promised he will send me a regular war diary the next time he heads out for a stint in Iraq.

Below is a slideshow of some snaps he took in Baghdad earlier in the year.

funny hook prancehall, but i can't get over the soldiers in these photos.. look at them all posing with big guns and cigs in their mouth. i guess that's what they do all day, but jeez it seems a bit contrived. they think they're freedom fighters, but alls they've done is help divide the populace and help US companies rape the country of oil... and now they'll be pulled out leaving the country in chaos. rant over.

We need to nullificate those Iraqian terrorists for the good of our nation, sir. As long as Saddam Hussein is alive we will not stop fighting for our freedom and free will.

Ask him how many "hajis" he "schwacked".

You used to write a column under a military alias where you made up imaginary shit involving Jammer?
And I thought I was weird..

no, retard. i made up a ridiculous name to use as my byline in a grime column and it turns out there is a guy with a very similar name who is in the army.
