    This book reminds me of Dungeons and Dragons fanfic I wrote in high school creative writing classes. I failed that class and also didn't have a girlfriend, so it's great to see Dylan not only freeing himself from slavery but also raising the consciousness of humanity with such similar quality work.

    Maybe we'll get our own, entertaining mini Shia Lebouf for a while.

    Shia is completely inscrutable at this point, because I know and he knows that he's doing some stuff because he's crazy and other stuff because he knows it'll get shared, but I don't think anybody (even Shia) knows which is which.

    That does not seem exactly true.

    I heard that his preface is similar to some youtube video? But his preface is a brief explanation of his life philosophy. I ain't have problems with adopting someone else's approach to life and then evangelizing for it.

    But maybe there is something else I haven't seen yet.

    Interviews with him are delightful.
    What was your childhood like, and how did it shape who you are today?

    My childhood was full of paradoxes. There seemed to be this constant duality in just about every aspect of my life, which gave me many perspectives and allowed me to wear many different masks. Ultimately, I was fortunate enough that my consciousness maintained its understanding and connection with Natural, Moral Law, so I never chose a path that sought to control people, but rather empower them. I have unknowingly tread on the left hand path, and I suffered a lot for that, but it allowed me to gain experience and understanding of certain types of people.

    Before your readers cast stones at me for that admission, know that most people are on the left hand path, they just don’t realize it, which was the case with me. So that’s why I became an alchemist, one who transmutes base consciousness into higher consciousness, whereas Sorcerers seek to destroy people from within through obfuscation of the Knowledge of the Self, and they do that for their own ego-driven, selfish gains.

    Right now, the most effective way for me to the transmute consciousness of unbegun, unraised slaves is through art, because of the frequency at which my work is created: Love. The greats do what they do because they love it, and Love is the force that expands consciousness.

    Dude they were just after a funny story about your mom and dad or something.

    To be fair, a lot of the one star reviews seem to be from people who have downloaded the e-version of his book and at least given it a shot. Judging from the first paragraph, which he quotes in one of the sarchived comments, it's a terrible, terrible book.

    It's not easy being a man of integrity. Like some sort of superhero, you have to be prepared to do battle with injustice wherever you see it. This particular adventure begins with the unlikely scenario of me embarking on an acting class - for no other reason than I enjoyed it at school and felt it might be a skill worth exploring as games and movies grow closer together. Hey, if you know you're capable of anything, why not? However, I had forgotten what it's like to sit before an insecure teacher and their flock of servile sheep. This one had the knives out for me from the start - beginning, rather predictably, with a stab at my name. She found the name "Dickie" objectionable and implied that I might like to change it for the sake of my career. "Not a chance", I retorted, pointing out that it was unique and memorable (a journalist I haven't had contact with in over 5 years instantly remembered who I was for that very reason). Besides, I wear it as a battle scar that states you can give me the most ridiculous name possible and I'll still make people respect it. She should have been paying ME for this wisdom! Realizing that my mind wasn't up for grabs, she then moved onto the physical and demanded to know why I was sitting in a "confrontational manner". This, I discovered, meant having good posture and holding your head high. I cautioned her that it was a side effect of being fit and confident, and refused to apologize for it. "Why is physical strength important to you?", she pressed, "Were you bullied at school?". "No, I bully bullies", I offered, "That's why I'm standing up to you". We could have made a movie right there with such classic lines! She wasn't impressed though, and pointed out that of all the people in the class I was the only one that had a problem with her. Trying to make MDickie feel bad about being "the odd one out"? The poor bitch didn't know that I could write a book on why that's a GOOD thing! I submitted that I was the only one with the courage and honesty to say what I was really thinking, and again refused to apologize for it. On the contrary, I took it as an enormous compliment. Any fool can sit there nodding their head and smiling politely if it gets them through the next 10 minutes without incident. Clutching at straws, the poor woman then claimed that "I need her more than she needs me". Again, I had to disagree and asserted that I don't need anyone for anything. She misunderstood my words spectacularly, as weak opponents often do, and dismissed me as a soulless robot who doesn't HAVE anyone or anything. I countered that divorcing yourself from "need" is actually the height of humanity and elevates you to a place of CHOICE - where you can in fact "have" anything you want. Since psychoanalysis was the order of the day, I then submitted that her thoughts turned to a "robot" because she wished I was one - and was rather annoyed that I had too much character to be controlled by her! And with that I stormed out of her pitiful class, which hadn't touched upon "acting" in its entire 3-hour length. It seems that skill, like every other, is one that I'll have to master on my own - free from the clutches of embittered has-beens who don't know what they're talking about...

    No, she seems way more weeabette than that. Her profile is all like Macross, Persona, and Zero Escape.

    And if she actually is the same girl I'm thinking of she's the kind of person who comes to classes wearing a tartan skirt with thigh-high stockings and stands around pigeon-toed, etc.

    I think I'd consider more Naruto fans weaboos than fans of other works, but I tend to only use weaboo as a term for the obnoxious, awful sort of anime fans.

    Still, Persona and Zero Escape are good choices. If nothing else, you need to steal her video games.

    My favourite thing about MDickie's self-aggrandising nature is that he didn't know how to code a quit function, so exiting the game worked by overloading the system with a loop function until it terminated the game itself
