asking for help for a friend 

Meatspace pal Clarence Young (aka badass writer ZZ Claybourne) was T-boned driving to work. His car is a wreck.

Help a guy out. Send him a couple bucks. It'll make the next Brothers Jetstream book come more quickly.

Updates: begging for money 

Good news! The HTC 10 a kind person donated to me has arrived and is charging as I type.

I have rent covered for December. I'm still about $35 short for my storage unit, and of course will have phone and internet charges for the month. The critical part is over, but I could still use some help.

Moving Fund 

My wife London and I are trying to move cross country with our daughter to live in my sister’s spare room (no rent and utilities paid), but we can’t do it without serious help.

We have no income, no savings, and nowhere else to go.

Neither of us can find work due to discrimination and disability.

It’s a 750 mile (1207 km) drive.

We’re trying to raise $1,500 USD over the next month before our lease runs out on Jan 5th.

Casual reminder that Lovecraft wrote a short story where the horrifying, society-destroying revelation at the end of the tale is not that the attractive woman is secretly a literal Greek-myth gorgon (which she is), but that she *had a black ancestor*.

my college's fight song 

Fight, fight! Inner light!
Kill, Quakers, kill!
Knock 'em down, beat 'em senseless!
Do it 'til we reach consensus!

(I am not making this up. Earlham is a Quaker college.)

I keep seeing Peyton Manning and Brad Paisley doing commercials together and wondering where James May is

saying “please leave me to my studies” and then continuing to watch youtube tiktok compilations on mute in the dark

death, music 

Irving Burgie, performer and prolific songwriter, died on Friday. His best-known composition is probably Harry Belafonte's famous version of "Day-O"; he wrote 30+ other songs for Belafonte, wrote for other performers, and composed the national anthem of Barbados. He was 95. SETL.

Never date a tennis player. 

Love means nothing to them.

Remember, it's pronounced "sword", not "sword".

#coloring #drawings today. Just one. This turned out more involved than I originally thought but hey, I think it's deffo an improvement.
