howsy all, i know it’s been a while but i’ve been busy peomoting Saturn Rising and with writing my new book. the ultra-special editions are out and look snazzy as hell if anyone wants to google “saturn rising” just for fun, and to see the totally over-the-too deaigns (seriously, i mean, hand-painted gold peacock feather paper covers and a hardwood box enclosure? LOL!!
anyway, there’s also something that i found rather distasteful, and without saying any more on it, i will quote the communique in full, below. it was sent by S. Ben Qayin to someone i am vaguely acquainted with on facebook (who happens to be a real nice guy, divorced and homeless, and suffering from… i think it was… bowel cancer and crohn’s disease. i can’t verify that last part, but it seems legit. anyway, here’s what S. Ben Qayin emailes to him just a day or two ago. this is the full message in its entirety, so Ben Qayin should have no problem standing by what he said, and supporting his having sent the measage in the first placeZ i will neither condemn nor praise, save to say that i felt it rather unkind, and not what i would have expected from a supposedly enlightened magician.
moreover, this should in no way reflect on EA, as i’m sure he had nothing to do with it, and i still intend to buy stuff from BALG like the universal circle etc. so, make of this what you will…
quit begging online for money and get a fucking job!!
its atrocious that you beg for charity and probably get it from the kindest of people. But then you leaf a crazy ass life style. Booze it up. And worst of all you won’t or can’t even keep a simple job.
you are a pitiful excuse for a human. Get a job, get a life and quit being a bum faking hard times and illnesses. You are such a parasite.
Do yourself and everyone a favor and get a life… Or end yours.
Keep it real bitch
i can only imagine that S. Ben Qayin is proud of this communique, that he fully endorses its content and would, presumably, continue to do so. if this is the case, then i sincerely hope that sending this message gratified him as much as i know it hurt the person who received it. personally, i wouldn’t have done aomething like this, but that’s just my personal point of view. any thoughts from others?
if anyone’s interested in my facebook reply i’d be happy to copy it here. i’m not trying to start shit between people, of course, but merely pointing out how shitty people can be, given the chance.
so, again, make of it what you will. (and remember to google “saturn risin
g” dor the totally wicked pictures of the ultra special esition of my book:P
kind regards, Tj.
