The goddess-seeking whack job is back

and this time he's written a book! I mentioned this guy about nine months ago, but I haven't thought much about him since then. Tonight, though, Sarah brought his site to my attention again, and the moment I saw it, I knew that all other blog topics would have to wait.

When we last visited with our goddess-seeking hero, he claimed to be working on a book. I have to give him credit for honesty on that front, because now he finished this important work and is offering it as an ebook. Check it out here. Scroll down a bit for a larger image of the cover. It is truly amazing.

I'd like to think this site was all a crazy pomo irony mash-up, but I don't believe it is; I think the guy is serious. That only makes it both weirder and funnier.

Wow.

His cover kind of creeps me out. Any woman stupid enough to fall for his revelry, deserves him. I can't imagine ever being desperate enough to want him as a life partner. However, if you "pretend" he is writing a satire, it is a very amusing read. Unfortunately, he isn't.

Mark said...

No, I don't think he is.

What a special, special man! I am simply astonished that he has not yet found his goddess. I particularly like his offer to refund the $9.99 ebook fee (required reading for all goddess applicants) in the event they score a date with him. Would that be $9.99 in food, or is he going to fork over the actual cash? Or should one bring along a penny to make the refund more convenient for him?

Mark said...

I think that bringing along that penny to ease his load would be in the spirit of his site and his book.

Michelle said...

I'd like to ease his load and slap him in the name of goddesses everywhere. I love that he promises complete sexual fulfillment. Ewww...I think he should buy a blow up doll, give it a copy of his book and be content. I do wonder if anyone has purchased it. Good point, Elizabeth, he is a special, special man. Ha Ha!

Mark said...

He claims to have applicants. Perhaps we're all judging him too harshly...nah.

Ticia said...

Okay. Love may not be a crime, but that cover is.

Am I the only one concerned that those women pictured are being stalked by this weirdo? That's the kind of collage police find in hidden shrines where there are lit candles and styrofoam cups with lipstick on them. ::shudder::

J. Griffin Barber said...

He's got four names; a sign, if ever there was one.

Mark said...

Ticia, I share your concerns. Let's hope there is no shrine made of the femurs of all the women who ever treated him badly.

Mark said...

Griffin, as someone with a two-word last name and a middle name--and thus another person with four names--I must say that not all people with four words in their names are goddess-seeking whack jobs.

J. Griffin Barber said...

Yet your parents didn't saddle you with three given names, as did his... Unless he took them for himself, which would show an even more more disturbing trend to creepiness.

Mark said...

Good point, Griffin. I like to think he chose to take all those names. It would fit the rest of him.

Did anyone else Google AngelBase? http://www.angelbase.com/

He's promising a heck of an ROI. Oh, and you get to bless the world too.

Mark, somehow, I can't see your title being changed to "Chief Angel" any time soon.

Mark said...

I did not Google it. Wow, that is some kind of return. I do, though, like the sound of "Chief Angel."

I tried to view it, and my security software blocked it, saying:

"The website you wanted to see might transmit malicious software to your computer, or has done that before to someone else. It may also show signs of involvement in online scams or fraud.

"Because you have set your Protection Against Web Threats to 'High,' all websites not yet checked by Trend Micro have been blocked for your protection.


"Address: http://findingmygoddess.com/
"Rating: Dangerous"

All things considered, I'll take your words for it that it's creepy.

Mark said...

I did not have those security issues, but I feel you're safe skipping it. Sorry for the hassles.

Fred Kiesche said...

I'd rather spend $9.99 on a Baen Book from some guy named Van Name.

Mark said...

Fred, did I mention you're a powerful man, and a handsome one, too?

Seriously, thanks for the kind words--and the purchase.
