New Book

A Hilarious New Book “I WON THE INTERNET! – DAILY WIT, WISDOM AND SELFIES, ACCORDING TO G.” To Be Released In September 2014

New York, NY (September 10, 2014) – Poet and blogger Geoffrey Dicker announces his third book, “I WON THE INTERNET! – DAILY WIT, WISDOM AND SELFIES, ACCORDING TO G,” which will be available to purchase through Amazon on September 20, 2014. The book chronicles some of the encounters of a “modern day Zelig” who has met a celebrity born on each day of the year (including Oprah Winfrey, Bono, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Morrissey, James Franco, Lady Gaga, Joan Rivers, Bryan Cranston, Jane Fonda and Ringo Starr) and presents his witty and uncensored one-liners and words of wisdom disguised as Status Updates and Tweets. Dicker encourages the reader to use this book as a guide to put them at the forefront of pop culture. It’s literally three books in one!

The book contains two sections of thoughtful and hilarious ideas for people to ponder and share online to make them the most popular person in their social media newsfeed. The third section is dedicated to “Selfies” which showcase a small portion of Dicker’s impressive celebrity autograph and selfie photo collection. Using this book as a daily calendar, readers get the chance to view these superstars and legends in the making in an entirely different light. The book features 365 exclusive color photographs of some of the biggest names in entertainment, music and art, and features cover art by pop artist Troy Gua.

“As a consumer of social media, I got sick of seeing people posting the same ideas and being afraid to voice their opinion as it might not be politically correct, so I’ve written this book to help people find new things to complain and laugh about. This book is my response to some of the good and not so good things I’ve experienced on line as well as some satire on social (and anti-social) media and the current state of the world. Plus, there are 365 exclusive color photos of celebrities!” Dicker said.

For celebrity enthusiasts, pop culture critics and aspiring social media superstars, this book is a must read. Featuring 365 exclusive color photos, the book is available in September 2014 from Amazon. Go viral!

On March 19, 2014, Chelsea Clinton and model/actress Lily Cole discussed Lily’s new app “Impossible” at the Apple Store in SoHo, New York.  Despite the negative connotation with the title of the app, “Impossible” seeks to help connect people to find others out there with the same interests, connect people to make their impossible dreams come true (sort of like how Craig’s List offers services) and also just gives a space for people to just show their gratitude.

The information presented was quite awesome.  It gives you the feeling that there can be an self-moderated online community that seeks positivity instead of whining and bitching about all that is wrong with the world.  It also seems to present an alternative to the time wasting and ever-present negativity that you find on Facebook and Twitter.

On a personal note, I’ve fallen for celebrity/politician bullshit many times in the past where you see them speak (either on TV or in real life, for me mostly in real life) and they seem to be such pleasant people, but once the cameras are off and they have the chance to really ‘put their money where their mouth is’ so to speak, you see a different side of them completely.  Lily and Chelsea Clinton spent a good amount of time talking about giving gratitude and being thankful for all their blessings and moments after the talk, Clinton showed her gratitude true colors by having ZERO intention of stopping to talk to the couple of fans that were interested in meeting her.  What happened to all that gratitude she just mentioned?   Hmmmm….. The moral of the story: NEVER TRUST A POLITICIAN.  I’m grateful that I never have and I never will.  Thank you.  Thank you. Thank you.
