Let’s fix some crappy movie tropes with the use of modern technology! Yay!

Yes, I had a very good, well written introduction to this post but I accidentally deleted it in my pocket. Then I wrote another well written introduction and accidentally deleted it in my pocket as well. The moral of this story is that I shouldn’t be allowed pockets.

So I know I’ve not mentioned it on here in a while, but if you follow me on twitter I still get almost daily packages from ‘the Chinese people’, Amazon sellers with poor grammar skills who want me to write reviews for them on the various Amazon sites in exchange for free or heavily discounted products.

As often as packages of random tat, I get tweets asking “How do you get all this free stuff?” and while I have mentioned how to do it before, I figured another blog post would make it look like I’m actually producing internet content rather than stagnating and sending people to old shit.

<!–more–>

Before I do that, I figured I’d make you exercise your scrolling fingers a bit.

Here’s a very small selection of some of the more recent random tat…

Fancy spy stuff…

A 3D Pen… (imagine trying to draw with a glue gun)

Some kind of mad tin opener…

Some sort of daft bra…

Heterosexuality enhancement devices…

A piano.

Half a dozen pairs of VR goggles…

Bibs for mucky pups…

Not a fucking clue…

Kitchen scales!

A terrifying tooth whitening kit…

Knickers!

Right, if you wanna get involved with what I find hard to tell myself isn’t some sort of scam, get yourself signed up with review.directory, leave your amazon profile details (here’s mine) and get ready for an influx of poorly google translated review requests from people with suspiciously English names.

They usually request about 300 words in your product review, and a few insist on photos or the occasional video, but you don’t need to be as much of a magicial wordsmith like what i is. Just say nice things, end it with a lie about being honest and unbiased and Bob’s your Dad’s best mate who you call your uncle even though he really isn’t. As a computer generated insurance flogging oligarch meerkat would say “Simples.”

One thing I would recommend is being a member of Amazon Prime. Yes, it is a bit of a pricey lump, but you get free next day postage in most cases, as well as getting to watch Preacher on Amazon Video.

So, yeah, that’s me being useful and helping you get free awesome stuff, so why not buy me a coffee to show your appreciation.

See you later then.

Hiya, it’s me again.

The Chinese people continue to send me random things to review on Amazon, as seeing as I’m just sat here watching a really boring sleeping baby doing sleeping and nothing interesting, I thought I’d share some more of the nonsense that keeps showing up at a pretty regular rate…


Ready? There’s quite a bit, so bear with me. Or don’t. I’m not massively bothered, you’re getting this for free. Well, unless you buy me a coffee, that would be a nice incentive to be actually entertaining. Look! Look at the monkey dancing from the caffeine rush that he is not able to metabolise correctly! See him fall down the stairs and split open his neck! Laugh! Laugh at the monkey! LAUGH!

Ahem. Sorry.

Another quickie review now, and get sat comfortably because I can guarantee you this will be the most exciting review you have ever read… OK, that’s a life. It’s a review for a wire. Yeahhhhhh baby.

Right then, time for a couple of quickie reviews, just to pass the time while the kids are in dance class and I have nothing interesting to talk about. (In real life, I’m still waiting for my daughter to be born, currently 5 days late emerging from Gem’s party zone, feels like it’s been 3 weeks since Saturday)

In other news, I also had a haircut.

First off, TechElec’s SP-X ¬†Sweatproof Bluetooth Headphones. (more…)

Hi.

It’s me.

Good. Glad we sorted that out.

I apologise for the lack of posts lately, been super busy getting ready for the new babby. Won’t be long though, she’s due tomorrow and I am extremely confident that she will be as efficient and punctual as I am. Oh, wait…

Anyway, this past fortnight has been fairly weird, as I have somehow been recruited by a bunch of Chinese businesses to write Amazon reviews in exchange for free products.

Heyyyyyyyyyy there ladies, how are you?

I know next to nothing about women. Well, I know what various bits do and how to make them cross, but otherwise I’m about as clueless as they come. So when I’m asked to write an article about women for women, about using technology to juggle careers and family life, well what do I do?

That’s right! I run off to twitter and ask for help.

I drew a picture of a snail because girls like snails.

I drew a picture of a snail because girls like snails.

Well I got a mixed response, because most of them refuse to take me seriously, and most of them wanted to mock my poor spelling of the word ‘sentence’. YES I KNOW HOW IT’S SPELT NOW.
