I don't know how "exactly" I came to find Siglerism, I was looking for some song on iTunes a few weeks ago, I don't remember what exactly I typed into the search field but it returned a bunch of very random and mostly useless results... but something caught my eye... my gaze briefly dashed across the term "audiobook" and "free" ... I clicked for further info and saw an entire audiobook called "Infected" listed right there... chapter by chapter... and to be honest, I though it was a fuck up on iTunes' side, since I've come across several albums or songs that were free while they weren't supposed to be.
So before even reading the description or anything for that matter, I had added Infected to my download queue, thinking to myself: "No idea what this is and if it sucks I can still delete it, but since it's free, why not give it a try?" I had several nights of office work ahead of me and could use the entertainment.
It didn't take more than maybe one, maybe two, perhaps even three episodes, but at that point I was HOOKED, helplessly being forced to watch my attention slipping from "80% work / 20% Infected" to "Work? What work? All I know is triangles..."
After tearing through Infected in almost one sitting, I moved on to Contagious which at the time was at Podcast #3, which was the moment I actually got some insight on the twisted vile mind behind all of this madness and it ultimately sealed the deal for me.
What currently has me on the fence though is purchasing the Contagious Audiobook on iTunes... it's not a question of money or anything, since buying music, books and other kinds of entertainment media is a regular part of my monthly budget... but I've started enjoying listening to our Overlord at the beginning and end of the podcasts almost MORE than the book itself and the weekly anticipation for a new episode is quite literally like an intellectual crack-drip.
If I get the audiobook, it'll probably be (understatement incoming) "amazing"... but just like that, it'd be over in a day or two and it wouldn't have that arsenic sweet touch of Sigler speech at the beginning and end :(
Yeah, oh well, rant over, hope the Overload ever makes it over to Europe.
P.S: How many Siglerites/Junkies are there in Germany? Do I get to feel special yet? :D
