Jack Gooding: Winner of the LIEF BOOKS IMAGE MACRO CONTEST
I remember when I first met Jack Gooding. There he was, in the chat room, advising Steve Roggenbuck to ‘take his shirt off’. Ever since then many have taken up Jack’s call for partial nudity of America’s greatest living online MEME/poet. Personally I’m thankful for Steve’s support, but the love between Steve and Jack is something very different. Is it love or something perhaps deeper? How deep is their love? I really need to know because we’re living in a world of fools, bringing us down, when they all should let us be.
Jack Gooding is no fool. Currently attending Oxford University in the UK studying advanced meta-physics of nano-biotechnology he often gives lectures about the benefits of technology to man. Many of Jacks’ creations are already in use. Jack Gooding invented the toothbrush in a past life. Now in the present he creates tiny robotic insects that fly into our ears and tells us we smell nice. Boosting is a major part of Jack’s online and offline persona.
Sure Jack may study technology in school but online he lives it. Online he has appeared in many Spreecasts. A few have complained about his shirtless wolf-mask life but those are the true ‘party poopers’. For only a select few understand the performance art of Jack. His work in the chat rooms of the world cannot be underestimated. They are beautiful works of art. Read his ‘TAKE YOUR SHIRT OFF’ repeated over and over, like a desire of enlightenment through partial nudity.
The UK has its own alt lit scene. Maybe Jack likes it. I do not know. What I know is he loves the American alt lit. He follows so many on Twitter expecting nothing in return but ‘LOLs’ and true fulfillment. Excited to see he is getting through school the top of his class. All of Jack’s classmates know him as ‘the genius dude who walks around half-naked in a wolf mask’. You think getting that sort of reputation is easy? Heck no one works at that sort of thing. And Jack is a worker. He’s dedicated to a beautiful tomorrow.
His award-winning Macro shows off his ‘work ethic’. While he might be so vain, thinking this blog post is about him, it is. I am happy to cover this important element of the alt lit scene. Sure I have mentioned him on this blog before, his tireless efforts to attend many ustreams and Spreecasts (he is in the UK so he has literally given up sleep for the occasion) but never before have I gotten this close to the mystical men-wolf hybrid. I am excited for a future with Jack Gooding on the internet.
