    Damn it you spam way too much for such shitty productions, James. Quit trying to attach your name to pseudo-esoteric insights and popular movements for SEO buzzword placement and go do some real magick to improve your subpar output, son.

      Indeed, I will clearly turn to “magick” to increase our output. (Since not a one of these projects is just about me.) Rather I have spent over a decade working very hard to put out the best possible material that I can with positive, productive people who would rather create output rather than masturbate over sigils and think we’ve produced change in the process. 

      This work is very much about creativity and expanding awareness and not at all about knocking other people down a peg. I’ve sacrificed a great deal for this work, though I’m not sure that’s something you would know anything about what that’s like–What, exactly, have you produced in the past ten years?

      Of course, if you want to call it spam or if it simply isn’t your cup of tea, that’s entirely your prerogative. But I for one would appreciate a bit more collaboration and a bit less snide trolling on the internet. All the same, thank you for your astounding insight.

        Your judgment on the quality of your work is clearly jaded by your participation in it’s creation. My problem isn’t related to your lack of magickal understanding, etc. – it’s your incessant spamming on any channel you can find to promote your terribly uninteresting and outdated content. I’m also not very fond of the way you package it as though it should be insightful or cutting edge material when you fail to live up to your self-generated hype to such a staggering degree. I mean come on, you basically post ads and old ass memes run through a new filter on disinfo of all places.

        • Pickles McGurkin

          Wow.  Then do the simple thing of -unfollowing- James.  You don’t like his content, you don’t like his packaging – unfuckingfollow.  
          And who made you arbiter of what’s cutting edge or interesting?  I know I certainly didn’t nor  did people who actually -do- like James and his fellow collaborator’s works.  If you believe you’re providing constructive criticism, you’re not. You’re trolling and it’s not adorable or even bright as it’s currently packaged.

    • Pickles McGurkin

      So you’re cranky because someone actually has passion for what they do, the drive to get it done and knows how to get it out there?  

      Hate on with your bad self and while  you’re at it, no one’s forcing you to listen to any pod casts about or with James nor read his material.  
      But hey, I guess it’s just easier to be a tin whistle blowing cry baby than it is to go create something yourself and oh, I don’t know, actually have it be seen -aaaand under your own name-.

      • Hatersgonnahate

        Passion means footing your own bill for your creations not spamming for crowdsourced handouts to pay the rent…y’know like listing webhosting cost in your fundraising campaign when your sites are just blogspot. Domains are $10 and shared hosting is ~$120/year – if you were passionate about what you had to share this is a small price to pay.

        • Pickles McGurkin

          It’s obvious you know James. Wo/man up, step up, own your opinion and sit down with James face-to-face rather than whip out your internet balls.

          The guy writes. He writes constantly and consistently.  He puts it out there under his own name when those very writings could be easily found by anyone who not like them. Ergo: passion.  
          That’s more than I can say for many so-called writers or transmedia artists.  What someone does to pay the rent, or whatever, is really none of your business. It’s not hurting you. No one’s forcing you to contribute.  Do you personally know that every single creative utilizing crowdsourcing is not using some of those funds to pay for whatever they need to continue creating like rent, transportation, for a bag of Skittles?  No you don’t. Again, hate on with ya bad self being a judgmental ballsack when you could easily un-follow James on all social media, remove yourself from any mailing lists and get on with our life is pretty… creepy.Or maybe you’re a masochist. If that’s the case, I can help you. But that would be in meatspace which you seem to fear.Again, no one’s forcing you but for you to sit behind anonymity and berate someone who -is- passionate about his -projects-… someone that you so obviously know is bullshit and you know it.

    Passion for a project means connecting to people, getting the word out there, and working your ass off to make things you’re proud of, all of which James does. He’s constantly starting new projects and collaborating with artists, musicians, writers and other creative folks.

    You can be passionate about something and still struggle to get enough funds together for a project. For all you know about the situation, the
    $120 for shared hosting and other expenses might be a hardship, though
    perhaps you don’t have to worry about money (that must be great!). That
    doesn’t mean someone isn’t committed to their project. Tons of people with passion and drive don’t have the funds to support their projects, which is why people do things things like fundraisers, crowdsourcing, and applying for grants (depending on the project they’re working on). Also, maybe you don’t understand the notion of crowdsourcing, so let me break it down for you. Crowdsourcing is when you give investors something in return for their investment, from a simple thank you to a physical/digital product. That’s not a handout, that’s a clear ROI.

    The great thing about the internet is that it’s full of everything you could want, from Rule 34 or LOLcats to music, writing and art, so instead of tearing someone down for fun, why not go find the wealth of other things on the internet instead? You don’t have to like what everyone creates, but you don’t have to be a troll either.
