This may be my last chance to make fun of Brent Sampson in 2010. Or, maybe not.
(left-click to enlarge photo)
Brent Sampson is the boss of Outskirts Press, a pay-to-publish company.
Both Brent and Outskirts do so many things so badly, that I often poke fun at them on this forum, and even wrote a book that is appropriately titled Stupid, Sloppy, Sleazy: the strange story of vanity publisher Outskirts Press. How do they stay in business?
Brent recently published a photo of the annual Outskirts holiday party on his blog. The photo was apparently taken on 12/14/10. To the right of the party photo, the blog displays Brent's official publicity photo. There's no date for this photo, but it appears to have been taken about 40 pounds ago.
Brent: it's time to get an up-to-date pic that looks like the 2011 version of you. And, this time, pick a different shirt and tie (that go together). Also, dark blue dress shirts died with disco. Make sure your collar point is not flapping in the breeze, and don't pose in front of a shit-brown background.
