There's this song where the guy is like, "I'd still sell my soul / For a little bit of money / And some self-control."  I think that's a brilliant lyric, and I think of it often lately. A litt...
I've written and published writing my entire adult life.At 20, I entered the army, but I kept writing then. I did my first what I would call real book at that time, though I had published two shorter things with a press before that, in 20...
Things have begun to turn around. I did lose my job at CCN. I was charged with a false OUI. There's more about that here. (Just hit the play button.)Today I'm looking at a house I can afford. I've been freelancing. If things go right, I'l...
If anyone could please help me, it would be good. I'm having some issues that I won't get too deeply into. I should have a paycheck already but apparently things aligned wrong for that. So I'm having a tough time. Hope you're not. Thanks.

In the state of Maine, you can grow marijuana. Next year you can buy it. Today is Sunday. I bought a bunch of alcohol. But there is a creeping problem. The problem of meth. I will be working hard to ensure that this disease does not reach...

I've spent hours convincing IRL friends to get on here. So far neither has joined. What I'm thinking is that if we want this to succeed, we're going to have to approach it professionally. I will be back with some marketing materials soon....

Sebec LakeAfter five hard years in Arkansas, I am once again in a place where we don't play all that nonsense. My ex is on her way to prison, if there is any justice. As long as she lives and breathes I will have to worry about my childre...
"So many assholes actin' like they know what they're doin' in life, man. Every last one of 'em's as confused and lazy as you and me," said Mick, not looking over at me but at the constant stream of these assholes strolling by the beach be...
Wake up before the blood starts running. Might run away. Wake up before the day starts dying. It'll die anyway. Wake up before the lights go off. And through the glare of bleary eyes: a fist. Never aimed at you. You were a bystander. Side...
ignore this postok?
Being honest, I can hardly imagine a worse confluence events than recently. I spent a third of my paycheck (which is monthly) repairing our family vehicle at the beginning of the month. My kids are no longer in daycare, as I can't afford ...
Look, the timing is too perfect. Good ole Bitfinex, known to manipulate Bitcoin markets, gets slapped with a serious demand from even more serious LEOs. Then they hilariously launch the $LEO token. LEO = law enforcement officer. They run ...
Amir Taaki published a blog on Coindesk today outlining his feelings on the recent Binance flirtation with “reorganizing” the Bitcoin blockchain so as to deprive criminal hackers of their proceeds. The famed crypto-anarchist and creator o...
Do you like poker? Tron is an inexpensive token to play with! Go here to start. If you're just going to play poker, I actually won't get any affiliate earnings, but if you decide to play other games later, I'll disclose that I get a sma...
Ha, I just read Bitcoin Origins for the first time. It's very long, and a lot of it is a bit boring. Scronty goes on for ages about how all the study in the run-up to Bitcoin's development happened. I can't say if I'm convinced or not...
Craig Wright is out there using the legal system in an attempt to silence people who don't believe he's Satoshi Nakamoto. The absolute ridiculousness of this only makes me think that he is definitely not Satoshi, but I've always thought i...
1 **There's nothing more annoying than supposedly wise technologists who are sure of things. **Beyond the laws we know, like the ever-changing rules of programming languages or the limits of current networking technology, no one can pre...
Everyone's losing their minds about high fees on Bitcoin right now. Bitcoin Cash is having no such issues, and actually proportionally greater gains. I'm on record as saying I support all three implementations. Which I do. But one thi...
(2006, fiction) I threw my coffee at the white door and caffeine splattered back to my bed striking my arm with liquid heat as a cloud of ceramic shards spread before me. It was something, but I needed everything. I struck across...
I’m about to connect two things that might not seem immediately related, but they definitely might be. Let’s leave Venezuela out of this one. Let’s talk about the world’s largest petroleum producers: MENA, the Middle East and North Afri...
