survival magazines


SURVIVAL MAGAZINES

I read my three Kindle survival magazines last night and I shall now enlighten and illuminate your ignorance ( not that you are stupid, after all you are reading me- no, you simply weren’t dumb enough to spend $10 to see how they were so are ignorant of their worthiness ).  I can’t say I really cared for any of them.  One, while great, wasn’t of a subject matter I cared too much for.  One was an embarrassingly amateurish attempt ( although not worthless ) and the two were best left to their paper format.  I present “Self-Reliance Illustrated”, “Prepper and Survival E-zine” and “Survivalist”. 

*

RSI was about knives and primitive wilderness survival.  Not a bad subject, but I don’t really want a whole magazine worth.  The pictures were almost impossible to see on the Kindle, so if you wanted detail on the debris hut type thingie you could squint and not see much.  Of the three, the most professional.  P&S was really not a whole lot more than “gee, I saw this mostest awesomest groovy subject on survival and here is the web page”.  Okay, not bad ( and the price is right at a buck ).  But you can get these things on discussion boards.  Such as several different ways to make natural bread yeast.  It is a time saver, at most.  Survivalist was the same mag I reviewed some time ago.  I loved it in its paper version, but unable to get it at my local store anymore, I settled for the K version.  I don’t care for that one.  Without the ads and pictures it was a bit short ( okay, it rather serves the same purpose of the defunct American Survival Guide as a fantasy gift catalog for survivalists ).

So, three strikes out for the electronic survivalist magazines.  Buy the paper.  Which leads me to the subject of ME, beautiful me.  I told you yesterday that I would be writing more, after the marital problems once again reared their ugly head.  After thinking about it, I said to myself, “Self, you stupid ass knuckle- dragging delusional moronic crap for brains, you are getting paid the same money per word as your century-ago pulp fiction comrades, yet your purchasing power is pitiful compared to them.  And you want to write even more?”  I’m glad I had that talk with Self.  And I’m serious about my pay.  I have wicked more talent than those writers did-mostly- and I’m getting paid one eighth or so.  So, seeing as how I’m not going to have all that much serious competition on the e-magazine front, here’s what we are going to do.  I’ll be writing at half my word length on the weekdays, 500 words instead of a grand.  And the extra effort goes to writing content for the magazine.  Unless of course I change my mind, which happens a lot.  But that is the plan for now.  I don’t actually expect great things, success wise, but I’m going to give it a try.  Stick with me minions, I still love you guys.

NEW Bison Blog CD For Sale
I've got an actual professional to achieve and format all the old blog on a CD-ROM. It turned out really nice- much nicer to read than online. It does cost $5 plus shipping, figure another $4 or so, which might be a bit on the higher side. But I think I'm worth it. That isn't too much to ask for over five years of work and nearly two million words of pure brilliance. Here is the link to order:

  4. What did I miss? :p

    Dunno Jim. During the 3 year marriage hiatus thing, I dated a few wimenz and downloaded a lot of porn. Breaking in/dating wimenz is EXPENSIVE and a bit of work. Better to keep your own esp if the new girlfriend wants babies.(But with Jim paying child support again, this would give the minions more time to prepare!!!)

    Just funnin a bit. W & U will get back together again.

    Love ya, bro!
