On June 30th I got an email from GetGlue saying I won a book for being the guru of the book Zombies for Zombies . Well the book that I won “ The Living Dead” by George Romero is apparently not really happening.
I haven’t really been that focused on getting it on a certain day or week because I know when you win things it could take a month or longer. But since it has been over 3 weeks I thought maybe it might come soon. I waited for the mail like a little pup but once again, no book.
I decided to go onto Amazon and get more information about the book, maybe read some reviews. What I see is confusing because it says that this book is available for pre-order and that it has not been released yet. Hmmm , ok well I go down and see in the product details that it was released on July 1st 2010. Well that’s odd. So I scroll all the way down for the discussion section for this book and find out that in the post at the very top that this book is not even real. It was actually someone who responded to the post titled “ Exciting! “.
Someone on July 13th said there was an interview on YouTube of him saying it’s not real and another person on the 24th said they would like the link to that. I searched and found it. I had to watch the first part of the interview then watch the second part of the interview to see and it was the very last question all the way at the end of the interview.
The question was asked at 6:09 and he responded at 6:25 that you can’t listen to what you read on IMDB, he responds about amazon at 6:51 saying you can’t believe any of the “shit” you read on amazon.
Seriously? I really don’t believe this. The Q&A session he did in this video was posted on YouTube on May 12 2010 by a woman who clearly sounded annoyed by the video game and novel questions and she clearly had her nose so far up George Romero’s ass, it was any wonder you could hear her chuckling at the questions being asked.
Anyway, I am a bit disappointed that the one thing I did win from GetGlue might never arrive, it was fun to think that it would though. I guess I can stop waiting for it to come in the mail now.
