They don't like comments

Lis Carey apparently doesn't like comments on her reviews.
this may explain a recent comment on one of my reviews of last year’s Hugo nominees–and means maybe I can expect more. (sad face)
Even I occasionally forget how fragile these psychologically decrepit specimens are. Anyhow, it's a good reminder to ALWAYS USE RHETORIC on them. They're vulnerable to it; they can't take it. That's why they resort to it even when it doesn't make sense in the context of a discussion, because they are trying to make you feel the emotional pain that they feel whenever they are criticized.

Remember, SJWs always project.
They don’t have the numbers to do much to the awards, but if someone has the time and energy it might not be a bad idea to keep an eye on other activities, if they’re going after reviewers. Individual reviewers are a lot more vulnerable to malicious actions and I find it hard to celebrate Rabid activity in that area even if the continued lack of impact on the awards results next year proves something.
"Vulnerable" the Lacedaemonians said.

Just remember to play by the rules; you cannot criticize the author, only the book. You cannot criticize the reviewer, only the review.

In other SF-SJW news, Rape Rape has run into writer's block now that he can't reasonably expect to get away with writing one rape every twenty pages. That, or whining about the Rabid Puppies is cutting into the Dorito-eating binges with which he powers his writing.
'THE WINDS OF WINTER is not finished. You're disappointed, and you're not alone. My editors and publishers are disappointed, HBO is disappointed, my agents and foreign publishers and translators are disappointed... but no one could possibly be more disappointed than me.

'For months now I have wanted nothing so much as to be able to say, 'I have completed and delivered THE WINDS OF WINTER' on or before the last day of 2015. But the book's not done.'
I'm not disappointed. I'm laughing at the fat bastard. It should be amusing to see who will push their next book into 2018 first, Rape Rape or McRapey.

Does it surprise anyone that Martin didn't hand in his work on time?

It would surprise me if he ever released another book at all. Seeing as he gave his "cliff notes" version of the end of his series to HBO already, who's even going to read the books if they do come out, months or years after seeing it on tv?

If I looked like that, I'd probably be fragile too.

Whoops, should have read the instructions all the way through.

Well, Lis Carey is certainly consistent in her reviews. Loves Anicillary et al, Scalzi (frankly, she looks a little like Scalzi in drag with a shave. I think it's the lack of a chin, though how someone can have no chin and multiple chins at the same time is a hell of a trick), Jo Walton, Neil deGrasse Token. She hates Vox, JCW, Kratman, Rolf, MZW, all things puppies...

Makes me all the more convinced that what we really need is a matched, personalized review system. The scores you see should be weighted based on how closely your own scores track the reviewers (e.g. if everything that I like this creature rates as 1 star, then her reviews don't influence the scores I see for other books).

Looks like Rape-Rape Martin doesn't have an ending in mind. Or one that is really hard to get to from the hole he's dug himself into.

Just like J.J. Abrams and Lost. Seriously, I doubt the new Star Wars trilogy has an ending yet.

Blogger Cataline Sergius January 02, 2016 8:52 PM  

Its time for him to farm it out.

Martin is an explorer and the problem with explorers is that they have to be excited by the exploration. Past a certain age they just can't get all that excited by anything.

He's just plain past it.

That and the Winds of Winter needs to have a strong romantic sub-plot and he simply can't write one. The only kind of romance he can manage is Beauty and the Beast. Long distance, tortured longing.

That's his idea of love because Martin is a deformed ugly dwarf...hmmmmmm.

Even better - Rape Rape chokes to death demonstrating the verisimilitude of Joffrey's poison, and to finish the book, Scalzi volunteers to be chained by the Ex-Toad of Tor to a flimsy chair consisting entirely of R. Scott Bakker's spinal bones, teetering over an open flame fueled by Martin's fat drippings.

For every self-soothing personal anecdote typed by Scalzi, a vertebra is removed from the chair...

So on that note... I don't check his blog often these days. Sadly, my respect for his work is tanking pretty hard (that's what happens when you needlessly insult and denigrate a large portion of your readers; but I digress). But I do pop over there every now and then out of morbid curiosity for the status of the next book.

Has anybody else noticed how loudly he trumpets it whenever Sibel Kekilli drops by for an extended visit with him? The "actress" who's basically only known for European porn and playing a prostitute on his show? And it's such a huge deal when they spend so much time together? Anybody else getting the vibes I'm getting off of that weirdness?

@27 - no, I commented on the review she made on The Stars Came Back. She posted the same comment on Amazon a while back, and in the comment thread there she essentially admitted she read less than 3% of the story, but it was clear she didn't understand that which she did read. I'd not said anything on GoodReads. I did After Vox said the battle could move there because I went and looked at what people had posted. I saw her same dishonest review as she'd posted on Amazon.

I'm not sure where Liz made her comment, or why Vox/s link goes where it does. But I'm sure her post was directed at my comment.

OpenID Jack Amok January 03, 2016 12:28 AM  

Ah, thanks Rolf. I don't know where she wrote her comments either, but looking for where it might have been, I did discover she has a GoFundMe site. Looks like she is a slumlord and is asking for help to replace her tenant's heating and plumbing system.

Anonymous Rolf January 03, 2016 12:39 AM  

@29 - HAHAHAHAHA..... Ah... no. If that is truly the case, it explains a lot of her mindset - she wants to privatize the profits (that why you are a landlord, to make money) but socialize the costs (begging when something goes wrong). That's just lame. Eat it or raise rent to the point where you can at least expect to break even. Been there, done that, got out of the business. But I never, EVER, begged for money to cover things I couldn't repair as landlord. It's also ironic, because I've been doing repairs like that myself to my own house this very weekend (and last year), but if I tried to do a GoFundMe thing she'd have ridiculed it and me, I'm sure. Expected repairs is why we save for the future. But socialists rarely understand economics; in fact, that's why they are socialists.

If you've ever seen the amount of work it takes to make a single hour of television, it will surely blow your mind. For the highest quality, like HBO turns out, it's easily 400-500 people involved during shoots, and that many more in post production.

So, literally, 1000 people can work, 8-10 months a year, for 5 years, and turn out 60+ hours of television (after editing), costing tens of millions of dollars at a minimum, on 4 continents, and he can't complete 1 new volume.

Based on his weight, his age, and general lack of appearance of health, I'd say we will be lucky if he delivers 1 more book before he expires. Let alone finish the series, whatever that may be.

Maybe instead of not-blogging every not-day, he could instead just write. Or hire someone to come in and finish of the story and start closing down lose threads. Even if he hired out someone to randomly kill off, oh I don't know, 30 or 40 of them, that'd be a good start.

How many characters exist in the GoT novels now? 50? 100? And he's going to wrap them up with satisfactory conclusions plus progress the plot and introduce a few new characters as needed in TWO more books? Yeah right. Here's an author in desperate need of a strong, talented editor but I get the impression of a coddled whale handing over self indulgent filler and being pandered to by a publisher too shit scared to tell the fat man he needs to go on a diet. Besides he only started writing the book last year so his protestations that the TV show went quicker than he planned for are particularly silly.

@33 - Indeed it is. A big one. In my rental (before I sold it), I had to do painting, replace an electrical service (a 60 am fuse system with a 200 amp breaker service), water heater, remodeling the kitchen (total gut and replace *everything*), insulating, total bathroom remod, new siding, new deck and patio and replacing an ant-destroyed wall. Yes, been there, done that. *myself*. Bought the materials, provided elbow-grease (actually the siding as a package deal, so I didn't do that part, I just paid for it). I'm sure she's a tough feminist, all for the empowered woman, who will just charge in there and get it done, right! And because she's a little older, her kids will pitch in an help her out! Oh, wait... she's looking for work, a quivering wreck, unpaid bills, literally begging for money, but she's still got time to read and review about a book every other day. And her picture is with pets. And the sob story includes wimmin 'n chilluns.

2015 would be bucking the trend if he has managed to get it to the editor. I wasn't planning on starting the series until about 3 years after the 6th book was published. I don't like to wait so long on things that I have to go back and reread them. But then if it is as graphic as being alluded to, I suspect I wouldn't enjoy it.

Makes me all the more convinced that what we really need is a matched, personalized review system.

Pretty much every company does this on the back end to enhance their sales to you. Google, Amazon, Target, etc.

For a time Netflix used to tell you what they thought you would rate movies based on your past ratings and what people with similar tastes rated. I haven't noticed it in a while, so either it wasn't useful or they are just hiding it and propagating the recommend lists based on it.

I actually read the ASOIF books for the first time last year. I enjoyed the first three and found the fourth passable(I like Sansa, Littlefinger, Brianne as characters). The fifth was tedious crap.

I find it funny that every message board and all over reddit the super fanboys can't admit to themselves that GRRM is essentially writing fan fiction adaptation of a superior work. Because the HBO tv show is superior. The writing and acting around characters such as Stannis, Arya, The Hound, and Littlefinger is vastly superior on the show then in the books.

Yes, very much so. I also noticed that he appears to have 3 or 4 assistants, all of them women. That's not suspicious in and of itself, but, you know, throw in the sex in his books, his sex-positive hippy vibe and his general creepiness, and a picture starts to emerge of what might be going on in Santa Fe. And that picture is the orgy scene from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. (Link SFW...ish.)

Apart from that, there are only two things left to say about Mr. Martin. One, his beard is horrible, and two, he clearly enjoys being a rich and famous writer far more than he enjoys actually writing the books that justify his wealth and fame in the first place. Look at all the time spent on indulgences like art galleries and movie theatres, and all the time spent being fellated by zilches and paedos at every SF convention he can get to (not to mention the week afterwards when he needs to "recover from his travels". What, is he walking to these things?).

His problem is he's acting like a legend in the field before he's finished securing his place in the pantheon. He's trying to cash his check before the job's complete. Or if you prefer, he's wiping before pinching: right now he should be gritting his teeth, bracing his hands against the walls and bearing down, but he's tired and gross and would rather just go back to his filthy Laz-E-Boy.

@43 Netflix seems to have something like that.

Netflix used to have a system whereby one could go into the account settings and mark entire categories as "I don't want to watch this, don't show it on my screen".

Their current system requires one to click on a show and select "one star" (i.e "I hated this show") of each individual movie or series that the user does not want to watch.

This makes the process of removing, for example, all the "gay and lesbian" shows Netflix insists on displaying very tedious. I believe the system is supposed to learn the user's preferences and show different content based on the star rating the user gives to the various shows.

I am not sure that it does.

I'm getting two more quotes today, and I'm hoping for a better price, but I don't anticipate that closing the gap completely by itself. I'd much rather go crawl in a hole and not bother anyone, but this is heating for a family with young kids. And Thanksgiving is in two days. Please continue to share!

UPDATE: The plumber has come, and the tenant's boiler needs to be replaced urgently. It is currently a hazard. I'm now a complete, quivering wreck.

I'm in a major fix. I don't have an income right now, but I do have some major expenses. The tenant's apartment has no heat, and a leaky kitchen sink, and needs a plumber. I have outstanding gas,and electric bills, and water bills for both apartments. I'm looking for work and trying to hold things together, but I'm desperate and need some breathing space. Help!"
