I'd love to make this happen for you, but at $250 a Tuckerization it's a bit out of my range. Would people be interested in getting together another Kickstarter, called "Tuckerize Mamatas in Glitter and Madness"? We can offer tuckerizations by me for $25 a pop!
if i can finish a story for G&M (which i aim to do), i will definitely tuckerize you, for free even
I think people are vastly underestimating all the creative worldbuilding that Beale has accomplished. I mean, "Gamma male," "rabbit," giving himself a pseudonym whose initials makes everyone think of syphilis? Surely his entire online presence is an attempt to become the next Andy Kaufman, right?
I mean, the alternative is too pathetic to consider.
Internet tough guyism often inspire a Poe's Law reaction in me. It has to be satire when you equate sitting by yourself typing stuff on a computer with physical combat.
Then I realize my paycheck involves typing stuff on a computer and I often feel a level of satisfaction when I finish typing as if I just moved a heavy set of boxes.
If Vox is satire, the target is being emotionally (and otherwise) invested in an intangible activity involving little real life exertion. So much so one adopts metaphors of deep physicality to fend off the inherent existential absurdity.
"Starring Vox Day, AWCA, Superintelligence, and Rabbit Hunter Extraordinaire"
Lord, I hope you're right.
Gosh. I was going to say something like "he's really turned transference into an art form" but it's such literal, on-the-nose transference it's hardly even interesting. He couldn't be making it any clearer that his mental image of Scalzi has everything Vox Day wants.
if ten of you buy that premium in my name and I show up in every story, the book automatically becomes my memoir.
Sorry, I already did that for Daphne. No repeats.
How is that measured, I wonder...
Aw, don't you know? Haven't you experienced it? Looks like somebody married a chubby gamma!
He doesn't fear women, he merely denies them his essence.
Clearly the fellow is mentally deranged. There is no other explanation for such -- well, such -- word here, I need a word that describes the depths of stupid displayed in public for all the world to see, point and laugh at.
Sort of like I always laugh (though then in a good way) at this line in Willie Nelson's and Merle Haggard's "Pancho and Lefty:" "He wore his gun outside his pants for all the honest world to feel ...."You can see a video of a performance here
-- though it's not the best one by any means -- there are others on YouTube, but hardly any with Merle, as in the original recording which just breaks you heart every time you hear it. Well, it breaks mine.

Just a minor note: 'Pancho and Lefty' was written by Townes Van Zandt. The Haggard/Nelson version is merely the best known cover.
Yeah -- it's even better than Townes doing it himself, which I heard again, not long ago!

Well, my mileage varies on that. I love me some Haggard and Nelson, and I like Townes' version best, at least when it comes to Youtube. BUT yah know, it's like arguing whether bourbon is better than rye.
I feel like there should be a poll option for "write another NY Times bestselling novel while banging his hot wife." Because it's clearly an option for Scalzi.
“Gamma male”? Doesn’t that means don’t get Scalzi angry, you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry?
I'm eagerly waiting for the Christian micropress fiction about whether or not gamma males have souls.
The have female souls, also known as demi-souls!
Team Bacon Dong 4 Lyfe!
Scalzi's wife is hot and also really smart. He is a lucky man.
Of course, same wrt your wife, my husband...I don't know why all these otherwise sane and attractive people decide to marry writers, but for God's sake nobody tip them off!
As for the picture, be still my beating heart!

Re: Vox Day.
I don't know why anyone pays any attention to that blowhard.
It's like somebody concentrated all the available douchebag into one guy.
That is why. He's like the guy who can fart "Flight of the Bumblebee."
Please retract such a scurrilous comparison to Le Pétomane, a man far more welcome at any party than VD.
...I like her pants. Tom Cruise, significantly less so.

You can't see it, but he isn't actually wearing pants in that photo.
