As most of you reading this probably know by now I was interviewed by Bubba the Love Sponge this morning, let myself be dragged off the topic of dolphins into other species (which I had promised myself I would not let happen) and hung up on the shit head and his partner Manson after one of them – I think it was Manson – called me “a sick son-of-a-bitch.”
I’ve put up with plenty of abuse in my life, I don’t need to take any more, especially from someone with the intellectual capacity of spinach.
I have to thank Dave Farrier of NZ3 for re-breaking the story yesterday. Why it took him so long I don’t know, I sent him those clips (which a friend filmed with my video camera) like a year ago, shortly after the story broke the first time in April of 2010. In effect, by delaying the release of his program, Farrier has given me a second “15 minutes of fame.”
Bubba’s interview has set in motion a chain of events which I, like Muad-Dib in the spice-trance, confronting the manifold futures of Arrakis, cannot predict. This is a personal event horizon for me. There’s no going back.
One of the events I could have foreseen was losing the client I’ve had for the past 5 years, a local magazine which has regularly published my photography and writing. Apparently several astute readers had recognized the me on Bubba, talking about banging my bitch (albeit unwillingly), as being the same person as the one who wrote those stylish, clever articles everybody liked so much. So I’m fired, and I’ve lost my primary source of income.
Then there was the phone “denial of service” attack, which required me to change numbers, but the less said about that the better.
The good news is, SALES ARE UP! I’ve sold 13 copies in the past 12 hours, which is more than in the previous month!
THANK YOU, BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE! Luv ya, Lard-Butt – NOT!
Apparently SOME people are willing to hear my message, bless ‘em! I’m ordering another press run of 50. Wish I could do 100 but I’ve got to make this paycheck stretch. Only the gods know when I’ll be getting another one… and from whom.
Stay tuned, I will try to update this blog on a daily basis until such time as things settle down. I have to go to bed soon as I have three interviews to do in the morning tomorrow… if they can still get through to me!
