This is the ultimate grift book. You can tell because of the lack of effort. There was no consideration put into proofing the manuscript; the grammar, punctuation and syntax all leave much to be desired. The cover is terrible, and while it relates to the book, this isn't what a cover is for, which says to me that this is a vanity project, not a serious work. Even the blurb on Amazon is a single sentence. I bet there are not even key words.

So if you are not even trying to find a larger audience t

Superb! Riveting! Delicious and Blue; I devoured it all!

"He is thinking of how strange it all is- how everyone can accept this zoo of man, these stacked cubes of domestic atomism- & this is Art? Is this what Life has become? Is this what remains of the species that once toiled and bled in the fields of history? How can this be real?"

I've long enjoyed this man's wit and insights on Twitter, and I was glad to hear he was finally putting pen to paper for the masses. He has often been a gate, for me

Whatever you think about the author of this book and his online antics, disregard it. This slim little self-published poorly-edited novella stands apart from the narcissistic "home base" of its creator and enters another-- the Museum of Expressive Humanism, where not only the distinctions between Art & Life, but Art & Life & Self & Reality, fall away. In a hypermodern world of connectivity, social credit, narcissism, and overhyphenated college majors, we enter a realm where the individual is glo ...more

The literary equivalent of a self-suck video. Why the "author" would put out a book with spelling errors and typos is hard to understand. It shows laziness and a complete lack of pride in their work. ...more

Veritable enough addition to the 'meme canon' so to speak... Cairey Turnbull goes on a date at a museum of performance art and has an existential dostoevsky-like trial about his fate and modern humanity. At times it is too thesaurus-verbose (the waxing of chapter 1), too melodramatical (chapters 4 and 5), too direct (chapter 3, titled 'exposition', where we get a distracting long narrative biography about our protagonist). He seems to emphasize style above all else, although he's clearly excited ...more

The large amount of time it took for me to finally finish reading this short book is reflected by all the other people who had problems with the "wait" at the start. Most people complain about the grammar and style of the opening which I find a bit pedantic, but there is a lead-in before chapter three starts, and all is explained in detail that hits too close to home. I finished right before that and it took about eight months before finally progressing. It's Cairey's lifestory distilled into a ...more

This book left me with a lot to think about but the thing I was most impressed by was what made him freakout when it finally reveals what his grand freakout was.
Lots of funny commentaries on the current art world and the current media world, that's the stuff Daedalus was interested in. Also very "now" to frame it all around a date.
I found this to be a very good book though I really wish he'd learn how to make an em dash on his keyboard rather than using hyphens endlessly in such a daft way.
He's

The book isn't that bad. But the author, Cameron Fuller, has ties to white supremacy and alt-right twitter movements, including Richard Spencer. Thus, I can't rate it more than one star. ...more

Selfie, Suicide: or Cairey Turnbull's Blue Skiddoo, in a Frygian system is a low mimetic technological irony. A literary aleph, Selfie Suicide's influences include Borges, Nabakov, Gogol, Blake, and myriads more, evoking their spirits to skry into the imminence. This future is ruled by a solipsistic snake who's seduction is limbic production; murdering love, art, and God. This gnostic nightmare is portrayed in a paranoid rococo of poetry and purple prose, providing a rich read within sparse page ...more
