    Apparently this story ran a few weeks ago initially, but I read about it this week in The New Yorker (paywall).


    Good riddance, you piece of shit. Join Joe Francis in the Hall of Irrelevance.

    I have found him so unenjoyable, and so utterly unredeeming, that I can't even get worked up about the fact he has found success. He has his millions (if he indeed still has them) and has had no effect on me. I do find it to be a useful cultural barometer that I can dismiss people who like him, but that's about it.

    However, this ...

    He is changing his ways of the past, and—gasp!—becoming a mature adult male, one is who seeking a committed, long-term relationship, leading to marriage, with an intelligent, substantive, accomplished woman.

    God bless the poor woman who falls for it, because her innermost personal and sexual secrets will be broadcast on the Internet soon enough.

    Biggest disappointment I've seen from this phenomenon is that the majority, if not all of, the people who I know who have bought his book and enjoyed it were female.

    I feel like some of the posters over on the Breitbart thread. I have no idea who this man is.

    Somebody loaned me "I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell." My thought after reading it: "Thank God I didn't pay for that." He's basically every asshole you knew in high school, only he never grew up.

    Never heard of the guy until I watched the "beer in hell" movie, which had a couple of funny moments. And, one of the best-looking unknown actresses around -- Marica Dominczyk:

    She was also the hot warehouse chick in "The 40 Year Old Virgin."

    Nice tagline to the story, by the way ...

    I know who he is. I remember reading through some of the stories on his website 5 or 6 or 7 years ago. I saw his book with the empty face, but was never going to buy it. Funny thing was, I was drawn to his ability as a writer. His stories were amusing, but his story-telling ability was what impressed me. Even if he did come across as a narcisist.

    Reading that interview? I started snoring half way through the first page. He's not that interesting in therapy. He had a shtick. He womanized, drank and treated women like crap. Then he wrote embellished adventure stories about his dalliances. Take that way, and . ... zzzzzzz.I don't want to read about his childhood and how it relates to his psychoanalysis. I can get that from all my neighbors, and it is just as uninteresting.
