I think I only have myself to blame. After all, I did three podcasts on Nickolaus Pacione, one on Blake Leibel, and another on Will Bernardara. Calling a spade a spade, these episodes were loaded with goss and drama, but focused around specifics. Nickolaus Pacione is a deranged troll that wouldn’t stop stalking, so I had fun with him. Blake Leibel is a psycho that mutilated and killed his girlfriend, and Will B. is a dangerous individual that is probably trying to find ways to target certain people that put restraining orders against him.
I woke up on Saturday, hungover from the countless shots of Jim Beam Bonded, and had received a message from an author that will remain nameless. This author explained in a message that he’s sorry for not coming on the Deadman’s Tome podcast, but his phone was disconnected because his agent did not pay him, and that the agent advised him to not come on the show.
I rolled my eyes and was going to ignore it, but then there was a screenshot of the person he was talking about. Who was this person he claimed was his agent? Well, it is a co-host in training for the Deadman’s Tome podcast. I immediately asked her what the dealio was with this guy to find out that she’s not his agent, she never told him not to come on the show but advised against talking about Nickolaus Pacione as it might come off as petty, and that she paid this guy. Not only did she pay this guy, she paid $800! Mind you, I saw the screen shots of her PayPal account.
Sack of Lies
Lie Number 1: When I confront this author about this, he claimed that he wasn’t even talking about the co-host, yet she was the person in screen shot he sent, and the person that had sent him payments.
Lie Number 2: The author started off by blaming his “agent” of withholding funds, but she paid him. Not only that, but based on the screen shots the request for money and the payments sent are within the same and following month.
Lie Number 3: The author then claimed that his “agent” paid him but only $400. What is this, People’s Court? More than $800 was sent to him, and when approached about that his story changed to that she was late with payments. So why start off with a fucking lie? How am I supposed to believe you now? Am I supposed to take his word for it? The word of liar?
Lie 4: Phone Bill. Even if she was late, how the fuck is it her fault you didn’t pay your phone bill! Pay your damn phone bill!
Messy and Grimy
First off, he blamed his phone being cut off on an agent he doesn’t even have. Instead of taking responsibility and owning to why he can’t pay his bills, he had the nerve to blame someone else that isn’t even his agent, someone that actually did pay him.
Secondly, he pretends like I don’t know who he’s talking about. The person he claimed was his agent was Becky! He wants to pretend that I have no clue who he’s talking about and has to be slimy like a snake around the subject. He thinks he’s playing 4D chess when he’s actually playing checkers with a no king rule.
Third, why does he feel like I even care about this. I don’t. The only reason why I wrote this post is because I invested enough energy to warrant a response. If you can’t make it on the show, then just say you can’t make it. Don’t send me a sack of lies and act like I wouldn’t figure it out. Who the fuck do you think I am?
But it gets better
Now, I learned some things about what this payment was for and it’s very sad and a freaking scam. This author claimed he was a great poet and his “agent” requested his services. The author was hired to edit a book for .10 cents, an author that can’t even make a living off his own material. Let that sink in, an author that can’t even make a living off his own writing wants to edit the works of others. You wouldn’t hire a salesman that can’t sell a car to sell a car, so why would anyone hire an author that can’t produce a book that people want to assist in producing a book that people want?
Charging .10 cents to edit as a struggling writer isn’t bad enough, but he didn’t even edit but made suggestions and recommended books to read. Not even worth the $800, because unless this guy is some poet guru why would you trust what he has to say?
Even Becky agreed that the service wasn’t worth paying for, but the reason she sent the money was because of his financial hardships he would tell her about. I seen those conversations, too.
It’s very fucking grimy and low to make false claims about someone, especially when that someone actually did fulfill their end of the bargain. Maybe the fulfillment was later than expected, but that doesn’t give permission to present it as if it hadn’t been fulfilled! That’s just a blatant lie. To have the nerve to present that lie wrapped in other lies is just so pathetic. I wont name who this person is, but he knows I’m talking about him, and he needs to just think about what he does and how it makes him seem. One’s character is very important, and I know I joke and act like a fool on the Deadman’s Tome podcast, but that’s not business. That’s putting on a show.
Oh, and for those that don’t like I did this. Remember, I didn’t ask for this. He sent me that message and lied about someone behind their back. Where I come from, that’s not tolerated. People like that get made examples of.
