Anyone know how long this is gonna be on sale? I get money on the 14th but I'm not giving 23 pounds for it if it's not on sale after that.
Anon, how does the tripcode work?
On the FAQ, it says to place a # followed by a word or short phrase after what you've entered into the [Name] field (ex. "User#password")
Does that mean that if I was to put the desired name, "Test", do I put it before, or after the #? And what do I put before or after the #?
I just uploaded the most recent part for ya'll.
Does anyone know what happened to the chick that started doing readings in one of the most recent threads? Wondering if she still plans on contributing.
Either way enjoy. Been doing this for about 3 or 4 weeks for those that haven't seen one of my vids before.
Be warned, I think I was drunk when I recorded this video.
Reddit just had a big thread on this book, so they'll be coming here in droves for the next week or two.
How about we just stop mentioning it and stay extra dry and surly for awhile to bore them away.
do another today man
id do my own recordings if it werent for normie housemates and paper thin walls....
trying to think where in public i can narrate with energy and not come across as some psycho
I totally would if I could.
Most of the time my siblings (we all live together) aren't home so I can record. But I went to an old neighbor of mines house and smoked weed with him. He is a very paranoid tinfoil kind of hat guy. In his 60's, drinks white russians, told me that some of the brighter stars are fake one part of a giant mesh/grid created by the military to protect earth. He's fucking radical. He's also gay and the dude he's with well. They're fucking hilarious to watch.
Thinking about writing a piece about fictionalized versions of them.
Anyway, I'll try and record something tomorrow. My one class on fridays (psych 101) is cancelled because the professor is going out of town for something.
So I'll have plenty of time to record and get fucked up then.
Maybe I'll do some high readings.
>paperback has twice as many pages
I can see that the hardcover is bigger in terms of dimensions, but does that really account for 200 odd pages?
What's happening here?
I don't know man, I'm really digging the butchered French paperback cover
I was high.
Probably added too much detail
Here's a new recording bruv
Of course all of you can view it if you so desire.
Looks like it was taken on an iPhone and then a screenshot was taken of that. So my guess is the poster saw him. Maybe.
Either way try cropping the borders and then searching it. It could work.

I've got a fair amount of recorded material, but editing it is such a major pain in the arse. Unless anyone wants to help out with the editing aspect (which is easy, but super boring), then I think I'll call it here.
Also, hey - did your audio quality get better Egotist? Good job.
There've been some amazing parts done by a guy on reddit by the way, if you haven't seen them:
Nice. Was wondering if you were around.
Also no, still using my webcam like I was before. For whatever reason some of my recordings will be miles better in terms of quality then some of the others.
Like my most recent one there
Is slightly worse quality then the one you just responded to.
No idea why.
Haven't seen those yet as I don't visit reddit but they're not bad. Although
no offense to the guy but I don't think I could listen to his too often.
If you do happen to edit/post anything else let me know if you can. I enjoy listening to high quality stuff.
You should get a decent condenser mic - it would improve the listenability of your videos immensely. You can get a good quality USB condenser mic for fairly cheap nowadays, 40 quid on sales IIRC. I got mine for 80.
Have you tried to run your recording through audacity's noise removal tool before you upload, by the way? Awful background noise is awful.
I have not tried running it through audacity. I'll start doing that though, hopefully that will slightly improve the quality.
I may see about getting a mic eventually but for now it will have to wait. Don't have any money whatsoever to spare currently. Hopefully audacity NRT will be a good enough improvement for now.
holy shit its real
>he disagrees with me, therefore he is a contrarian
Your argument is that the book was good because it was popular
My argument is that popularity doesn't make the book great
Popularity isn't a factor
>the bible is the greatest book ever written because it's the most popular
It says "Fourth edition" on the first page. There's only like 20 first edition copies, one second edition, six third, 360 copies of the fourth edition are sold. Something like 7 DELUXE.
Hello, Bottleman here.
As of last week, I have been recreating the book in A5 format, trying my best to remain faithful to the original format but not binding. The final result, I have decided, is open for anyone to download. I have postponed revealing this version due to the sudden influx of redditors, so let them have the flawed book. I don't really mind much if bourbonfag comes and adopts this as the latest version, but I would fucking like, personally, some evidence that he isn't hoarding the lot like the pig people depict him. Anyway, here it is:
As far as I know, having gone through all 685 pages and making corrections (I left punctuation and some misspellings since, I think, they portray the spontaneity of the project in a nice way), but all my concerns have dissipated with this masterpiece.
My job is officially over, now I'll use this post to answer some questions that have been afloat recently concerning the new project.
Q: Is Bottleman profiting off Hypersphere?
A: Not a penny, no. It stands against my principle. It's not so much a matter of ethics as it is ownership. Now, why I didn't publish it and proceed to send the earnings to a charity, is explained as me having restricted my privilege to "editor." I had strong convictions that Hypersphere would not be commercialized at first. I would not betray /lit/ with independently publishing it to the net, but I can't say I'm not surprised by the denouement, given previous attempts as these.
Q: What do you think of C://... (New book project)?
A: I had people nod in my direction to take command of a new project or, the very least, collaborate with what's-his-name (Ishmael, had to look in the threads). I don't necessarily approve of his methodology, a bit ambivalent on the topic all over.
To expand on this, here's a little shocking revelation. To me, personally, Hypersphere is an utter failure, not devastating but more a minor disappointment. I made use of it to practice typography and diction style, but in hindsight all I wrote is "neat lexical acrobatics". All which proves I have a long path to traipse before my work is slightest respectful.
Q: Will you continue writing?
A: Yes. One person suggested a blog. I need time to think about it. I jokingly helped write a page in the 24 hr. GoogleDoc that was hosted yesterday, just because. Bigger projects? Don't see it, really.
Yeah, so this is, officially, the final edition. Enjoy, have a nice and cuckless 2016, guys.
From what I heard Bottleman hacked tripfags lulu account and transferred ALL OF THE PROFITS (several dollars from what I've heard) to an account in Switzerland. This communist façade is just a charade for the masses.
It's true I tell you! TRUE!
>Lulu Sales Rank: 11132
It's a smashing success dontchaknow?
Bottleman here, this isn't me
Sorry guys. You reach a point of recognition on this website and that recognition becomes notoriety. I just wanted to work on a novel and now people are out to make me look bad.
This will be my last post, thanks
m8s I bought this after the apostrophe formatting problem was allegedly fixed, but lo, there's a big fucking space after every apostrophe in the book
sorry, i should have written:
there' s a big fucking space etc.
pls gib explantion.
Fucking disgusting /pleb/ tier reddit made book with a shady ass publisher and editor. Why the fuck did anyone give this guy so much authoritative control literally reeks of redditry and tarnishes everything that gave the previously mediocre books some shred of value, the equal and consequently chaotic nature of their making.
Do not buy this trash, it's not /lit/ canon, it's reddit /r/ writingprompts
PS kill yourself
Here's the newest video for ya'll.
Didn't get a chance to upload one yesterday.
At this rate I may actually finish before I die!
RIP I love you thank you for your work
Rest now sweet prince
I kind of almost want to own it to have a piece of meme history but I'll withhold the buying impulse just yet.
Actually wanna sift through Tundra electronically instead. I see there are multiple copies on scripd.
