Ah well. Time for another overnight shift. Then no more work until...Saturday :/

Good thing I've got two interviews this week and some midterms to study for.

Just one of 24 (so far) different jobs in the journey of my life. :-)

I hear that. I'm destined to be a writer, because I certainly have the resume:

Before Patrick Curtin wrote Pirates of the Terror Moons he was a soldier, a pizza driver, a fence installer, a landscaper, a snow plower, an office scheduler, a census taker, a baker, a convenience store manager, a security officer, and a school bus driver.

Before David M. Mallon tragically hanged himself in a gas station restroom at the age of 30, he had moved from job to job as a landscaper, camp counselor, assistant truck mechanic, construction laborer, construction electrician, oil change technician, professional illustrator, graphic designer, roadie, road manager, record label intern, loading dock operator, dishwasher, copy editor, tape archivist, library page, shipping sorter, guitarist, bassist, and lead vocalist. He could have been destined for greatness in any of his chosen fields, but instead chose to spend the last decade of his life drinking to excess and dicking around on fantasy role-playing game forums.

One of the few pros about freelance work: the ability to get work done at 4 AM while pissed as a newt.

Dude, you have more talent in your pinky than I have in my whole body. Never give up. Latch them teeth into life's windpipe and don't let go.

F*ck I'm almost 50 and headed back into school. Not a penny in the bank and a job that won't give me hours. I'm having the f*cking time of my LIFE!

Still would give anything to be a Jedi Knight or Commander Shepard for 10 minutes.

Unfortunately, you can't eat talent, nor can it pay your rent or fill you gas tank.

Well, unless you're Freddie Mercury, but he's been dead for a couple decades, and I see no replacement in sight.

True, but you can work, and in the brief moments you have to yourself use that talent to bring joy

PS: I want a commission out of you. Send me an email when you sober up and we'll discuss the details. I probably shouldn't, but I am confident the universe will provide. And I want at least one good thing from my taxes.

Ever hear the joke about the suicidal seal? He walked into a bar and asked for a Canadian Club on the rocks.

Beautiful moon tonight. I wish I had a camera that could capture it.


Stuck in a pre-dawn parking lot. Next hour I get to study my Litigation notes some more. Yay

Right now, Wayfinder is on top of the stack, but I'll let you know when everything's finished. Still, I can think of better ways to spend the money you get when the government gives you your change back after taxes.

I can't. Art is frigging all dude. My walls are so full of art now I can't even see the paint between them. I was going to frame up the stuff I still have in tubes, but I want to do my part and be a patron. I'm still way happy with the pennagalan you did for me. And the Bridge of Skulls.


I would rather starve than deprive myself of art or books. Or art books.

Speaking of commissions, if you're into more of the painterly high fantasy stuff, get in touch with this guy, and if you want something weirder and quirkier than my work, get in touch with this other guy.

This got f@++ing dark hella fast.


Meh. It's 530 am. It was dark, but now Dawn is breaking! Yay!

Besides I am happy. Deliriously happy. You know why? Because I prefer to be happy. And happiness is its own reward /trite.

Happiness was last year. This year I'm getting paid.

Money for nothing and your chicks for free. A wise and noble aim.


#selloutorbust


That's the way you do it.


Selling out for what, lmao. As if making money diminishes art. I never understood that thought process. Make art, get paid. Or, make art, don't get paid. Or, think about making art, have good ideas, and fail to execute. Or is that just me?

Make art; make money. Make art that's actually marketable; make even more money.

Anyway, sun's coming up. Time to get back in my coffin and sleep.

Suns out, guns out!


Time to study more. Ugh

While very cool, part of the patron process for me is helping a friend create. I want you to have a paying gig, not some rando artist, even though their art is nice.


Ok. Here we go;

Fed R Civ P Rule 22: Interpleader

A) Grounds
1) by a plaintiff. Persons with claims that may expose a plaintiff to double or multiple liability may be joined as defendants and required to interplead.

Ok I won't bore you with the rest. Still, it makes sense once you parse the new vocabulary.


Sounds boring.

But a lot of things that put food on the table are.


Yup. When I was younger I got it in my head I shouldn't try to get a 'corporate ' job. I would just work whatever. After all, I wanted freedom. Well, that line of philosophy went really well.

Seems like a nice place you've got here.

Thanks! It's been very nice to have some of the old crew come and stop by. I missed the friendly drama-free interaction we used to enjoy in FAWTL once upon a time.

I enjoy BSing with my virtual buds. It also encourages me to stop by Paizo more often, which also helps me inject a bit of energy into my PbPs.

I can't post on Fawtl any more.

It's been over 30,000 posts since I did and I can't break that kind of streak.
