Pottersville's Gone Professional

For over four years, I've been giving it away and proud of it, glad to do it. Now when it looks as if I won't be able to do that, it's at a time when my blog posts read if they were written in contravention of the million monkeys/million typewriters theory.

The quality goes down, the demand for money starts. Sounds very, very Republican to me.

Please note the Paypal button just above my profile on the right. There's no rush, no unreasonable demands. Except to say that if I don't soon see some cha ching in my savings account, I'll go to someone's house at random and shave their dog. Maybe drop off my junk mail in their mailbox, too. Clip my toenails in your bed and leave them there. Yeah, I play hardball, folks.

Seriously, whatever little help you can give me would be, of course, greatly appreciated but don't be stupid and give what you can't. I ain't exactly starving thanks to some OT at work and two very good friends who couldn't wait for the Paypal button and sent some generous tokens of appreciation to me via snailmail. Home internet access will be a done deal perhaps by this weekend. Once I have unlimited net access, this blog will be up and running and you'll be seeing our usual quality programming. Perhaps I can be persuaded to offer gifts in return like manuscript copies of American Zen (the first 50 pages of which I sent to St. Martin's Press about a week ago).

I don't expect much 'cuz times are tough so be smart. I would appreciate some help from anyone who can advise me on how to customize the button so it doesn't look so cold, curt and demanding, saying, "Donate." Paypal's customization template doesn't really offer shit in the way of diversity.

From time to time the Big Blogs (like Americablog) shake the donation can and ask for people to donate. I never do, I ain't got enough spare change at this time, in fact I am 16 days late on rent this month!

But I will gladly give some money to JP. His is THE best political writing on the series of tubes that I have ever read. He's not one of the Big Boys, he's gets no income (like advertising) from this blog.

I will donate to JP and this blog.

I made a contribution so now you have to write what I want you to write. Oops you're not Armstrong Williams or the propagandists at Faux Mewls so truthfully thank you for the great stuff that I've read here and I really did donate.

Hey, if you want me to tout No Child Left Behind, I'll do it for a cool $240,000.

Comrade: Thanks, dude and to everyone who'd kicked in. I should be getting 'net access within the week.

yeah they do havea decided lack of imagination over to paypal.

of course, i've never thought that imagination was all that great a fucking thing when i was talking about my money folks. give me boring everyday when they're handling money.

look what creative got us.

graduation is tonight. it's been a long road to get there.

it. feels. good.

it felt good to give a bit too. like gilly used to say:

we. fight. on. (and fuck the fucking yankees)

I tried sending you 5 bucks through Paypal but I'm not sure it went through to your account. If it didn't let me know and I will try again.

Kathy: No, it didn't go through. I didn't get a notification, at any rate. No one's money, as far as I know, has made it to my bank account. Apparently, I have to confirm some bullshit on Paypal before they'll open the dam. Wonky bastards.

Stevie: Your daughter graduates from medical school tonight? Congrats, mazel tov and however you say it in the beautiful Apache language!!!

Fuck the Red Sox, too. The way they've been playing, they can suck a bowling ball through 30 feet of IV tube. Sheesh!

Bruins and Celts are headed for the playoffs, though.

Well, PayPal has no problem charging my bank account for the money I donated to you! My bank says PayPal billed it yesterday, so they've got your money, but I suppose PayPal doesn't feel like it has to give it to you...
