Jacob Steinberg read his newest and greatest book tonight: Your Eyes saw my unformed limbs. On the cover was the picture of the saddest Golem I have ever seen. For those unaware of what Golems are, they are basically the precursors to Pokémon, those lovable creatures who will cherish your friendship forever. To follow up on this chapbook dedicated to golems, those ancient creatures, some random blogger may or may not decide to make a mini chapbook dedicated to those wonderful creatures. Among the titles thrown out there are “Pikachu: I choose you” and “The Electric Acid Pikachu Test”. Either way it could potentially change your life and all perceptions on the Pokémon lifestyle. Prepare yourselves if this comes to pass.
The reading started strong. Personally, I think Jacob has a great online presence. Reading his newest chapbook half-naked is usually a good way of attracting viewers. Even in the literary underground (above-ground) sex sells. That’s what happens. Due to his tactics he managed to sell one of his chapbooks to an interested overseas buyer. Of course you can go to his blog right here and snag one of them from the temporary Florida resident.
A few additional financial opportunities presented themselves. Jacob decided to take a page from the Golem playbook. In Golem culture, thousands of years ago, Golems used to hit on each other through the only way they could: through the exchange of underwear. Mr. Steinberg sold, or toyed with selling, his underwear to make ends meet (in more than one way). Chapbooks can’t pay the bills. Sometimes it takes a little bit more to bring in cash money. Sometimes it takes a blog to focus on underwear sales, to get all the gossip about alt lit writers. Of course you come here for that.
“This isn’t about Jon Ross it’s about art” received some sweet attention from Mr. Steinberg. His chapbook may or may not be reviewed at some point in the near future. Besides this Jacob became a boykitten, through his application of cat makeup onto his face. He did this in celebration of Kat Dixon’s greatness.
It ended with Jacob wishing us a fine night and becoming one with the boykitten internet movement through a complicated induction process.Welcome Jacob!
