Fuck Amazon Back
There has been some confusion lately around Amazon.com.
They have blocked me from writing reviews apparently due to my not having spent $50 in the past 12 months, which is true, since I live in Canada & shop on Amazon.ca. This is a problem because reviews on Amazon.ca do not appear on Amazon.com, so this makes it impossible for me to support the writers I want to by writing reviews on Amazon.com. I am very tempted to say Fuck Amazon but I fear they fucked me first.
What’s more, Amazon.com has been blocking people from reviewing Prisoner of Infinity, saying the book has not been released yet. This is despite the fact people have been buying the book since April 1st, and that 8 reviews have already appeared (before the ban was imposed).
Officially, the book was released yesterday, April 30th. If you have read it and enjoyed it, go review it and let us fuck Amazon where they, apparently, hurt.
If you haven’t, go buy it, maybe somewhere else. Me and book sales may be two worlds that will never meet, ever since a) I gave away all my money and said Fuck You to serving Mammon, ever. b) I tried to hedge my bets with Mammon by writing Matrix Warrior, declaring myself The One (Prince of this World), and, when asked what would be the proof, replying, “Book sales.”
As further proof of my Nothing-ness, I did a book reading and presentation in my home town for Seen & Not Seen. Despite it being probably my worst hair day ever, it went very well, as I think the videos below will show (especially the one where I keep my cap on). Only setback, for over twenty people attending, not one of my books sold! Of course I forgot to plug it! I even implicitly suggested that the book wasn’t important, because we were there for real-time, soul-to-soul connections! D’oh.
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
Guess that means I am doing alright, then?!
Apparently YouTube is also keep its AI on me, as a subscriber tweeted me this recently:
quality controlling your video now, what did you do to piss off the AI? I’ve only seen it once before. Click on the emoji.. but satisfied about what, video, sound, content, your clothing? Although I’m subscribed none of your uploads appear on my “recommend” landing page.
This dovetails not-so-nicely with my current experiment in viral engineering, to see if it is possible to get past Al Gore’s rhythms with my own brand of inconvenient truths. If you want to participate…. Help. Let’s hate this world together.
