High Plains, Heavy Metal, Iron Master, Super Strength Bible!

Post by Bud Charniga's grape ape » Wed Mar 19, 2014 9:02 pm

by Steve Justa and Bud Jeffries

Who runs Bartertown?

I got a free copy of this "book" through the Amazon Prime kindle lending library, and feel like I overpaid. It lists for close to $30. Let that sink in for a minute.

I put "book" in scare quotes because here's what you'll find inside:

-A mildly queasy love letter from Bud Jeffries to Justa
-Justa bragging about what a badass he is
-Poorly-scanned photos of Justa doing Justa things
-Justa's art!
-Hortatory prose about being a badass
-An offer that, for the low, low price of $30,000, Justa will come train with you for a month
-Oh, and at the end, a "training routine" that one could conceivably follow only if you were an unemployed, unsocialized hobo living in the boonies with ready access to a dumpster full of scrap metal

For $30, I'd rather pick through some bullshit by Ferriss, or Waterbury, or Romaniello, or one of those assholes, because there's at least a chance, however slight, that you might pick up something interesting or useful. At this point, the only interesting thing you'd pick up from Justa is a staph infection.

Go reread Rock, Iron, Steel, and raise a glass to Randy Strossen: Whatever else you think of the guy, in between daydreaming about flossing with Pisarenko's leg hair, he managed to get a passably readable book out of Steve Justa.

This is not that book.

Next time, just mail me the money you plan on spending. I'll do something cool with it and send you a photo.

Amazon Prime lending library. I wouldn't spend money on this.

I'm almost certain Randy wrote the entire Rock, Iron, and Steel

The typical response from neighbors of serial killers is something like, "He was nice and quiet".
When they finally dig up the bodies behind Justa's hovel everyone is gonna say, "I knew it." :axe:
"Tell A.P. Hill he must come up."

Since Romaniello is currently banging Neghar Fonooni, I'd listen to anything he says.

The only thing they'll dig up when Justa dies is a bunch of benefit checks.

Does anyone think a guy like that actually works, at all?
