Moving Day!

website
As many of you know by now, life has been a bit chaotic as of late. After the break-up with my fiancee, I still had a book in the works despite having spent my last penny moving back to Montreal. This forced me to live on the generosity and kindness of my friends and family, and despite getting a huge portion of it done, the loss of the art-book set things further back, forcing me to delay the launch.

To make matters worse, my microphone and computer situation had deteriorated to the point where recording podcasts was simply impractical, and with the book looming, and my growing disconnect with the atheism scene in general, I called the radio show off.

Of course, I’ve been doing podcasting for so long that I can’t seem to go without it, which is why I’m working on a brand new one called Holy Shit I’m an Ape. The show is not about atheism, but is a general topic show  covering everything from my thoughts on writing to politics in the US. Unlike the format of TGA, which tended to be more rigid and academic at times, I’ve decided this one is more of a stream of consciousness, interspersed with humor, a bit of music, and some interviews.

Now, because I’ve been sleeping in various living rooms and guest lodgings for a while, I didn’t have the stable environment to pump out a regular show. Instead, I’ve been working on a backlog of them slowly so when I launch the new podcast, you’ll have something to bite your teeth into a little. That’s changed now that I finally have a place of my own (well a room, but that’s a start!).

In the meantime, I’m regularly posting on jacobfortin.com now, usually showing all the behind the scene stuff you’ve never seen, and I’ve also set up private forums for members only. I’m changing the membership dues to ‘pay whatever the fuck you want’ and I’m actively recruiting for the 300 (since this is more ‘fans of my work’ stuff than ‘atheists who want my message out there’). Naturally, because of this new policy, I’m counting on the people who join up at reduced member rates to participate heavily in the forums, sharing their Internet discoveries, stories, and thoughts about future content I’m developing (including a cooking show that I’m working on with a TV producer).

If you’d like to be a member, please get in touch. Slots are filling up quickly, and it caps at 300.

    Why did the woman ditch you? Could it be that you’re just another brainwashed man-boy who can’t provide for a family? Newsflash Foreskin: atheism is the central axiom of communism. The same communism that killed 40 million Russians and 60 million Chinese. And you think religion is bad. LMAO.

    Religion is not bad. The people who use religion to do bad things are bad. Focus on the problem. Not the symptom. Durrrrrrrrr.

    You communist.

    Hey Andrew, this forum is not for dicks like you. If you don’t like Jacob, then don’t read his stuff. On the other hand, thanks sooooo much for providing yet another example of why religion is dangerous. And it IS bad, and it IS what makes good people do bad things. If left to their own devices like it should be, they wouldn’t BE bad.

    No dicks allowed? LOL considering this was written by a man-boy who infringes upon peoples’ right to religious freedom. Jeanette is just another brainwashed tool. Go watch Big Bang Theory you closet communist.

    Yeah, Jeanette. Don’t you know I’m a secret communist just angry at God for not letting Soviet Russia win the cold war? That my atheism wasn’t a result of study, reflection, the weighing of evidence and the decision not to make assumptions about the Universe that weren’t substantiated with proof? Sheesh, you would have thought that would have been obvious from the thousands of articles I’ve written over these last 6 years. Get with the program! I mean, why else would the banner be red if not to welcome our comrades into the digital age?

    Hey Andrew!! I’m pretty sure you’re the brainwashed tool. I’m the one who uses logic and reason in my everyday life. Why don’t you try giving respect to other people’s beliefs/non-beliefs if you expect them to respect you? I bet if you have kids and one of them screws up you punish all of them. Go be an angry “Christian” somewhere else. I’m sure nobody is forcing you to read Jacob’s blog. Oh yeah and Jacob, you are hilarious and I LOVED your podcast. I’m sure you’re lauging just as hard as I am at the posts by Andrew. He is one of the reasons I am an atheist, and very proud of it. I’ve got and brain and I’m gonna use it!!!

    The only thing hilarious about Jacob is his hypocrisy and eyebrows. LOL @ study, reflection and weighing of evidence.

    Which evidence is that? Reflection? Lemme guess, you looked at a mirror and said to yourself, “if there was a god, why did he make me so ugly? there must be no god!!!!”. The only thing you study is the Communist (psuedo-Jew) BS you see on cable TV.

    I am no Christian. BUT I do believe in the Constitution and religious freedom. You can believe what you want but to try to make a living making fun of others is a truly pathetic existence.

    March on Commies. Go kill another 100,000,000. You probably worship at the feet of Obama.

    Wow Dude!! I only guessed you were a Christian due to your narrow “beliefs” and mean judging spirit, not to mention the fact that you clearly lack reason. My bad. Since there is no convincing a douchebag that the grass is green and the sky is blue, I’ll disengage. But seriously for the third and last time: YOU ARE A BULLY AND NOBODY IS FORCING YOU TO READ THIS WEBSITE SO GET OFF IT!!!!

    No Jeanette. Im gonna pull a Jacob and ask people to pay me to harass Jacob. Jeanette. Give me $20 and Ill give you a “gold member” membership pass. Pay the tithe. Ill be your false idol. Ill tell you what to think because youre just another fat, lazy blob who is too lazy to think for yourself.

    Hey, Jacob! Don’t let your perfectionism get the best of you. Do you have to translate the entire old testament? The entire thing? That sounds so ambitious. It will be great even if it doesn’t live up to your standards. It’s best to get it out there.

    xoxo
    we miss you
