I’m being majorly spammed on the My Pitch post by multiple trolls – probably the same entity under different guises. I keep marking the comments as spam and then removing them, but I might just let them accumulate so I can show them to the Happiness Engineers when the time comes.
Probably their motive is to get my goat, knowing that since My Pitch is an obvious appeal to get money for my demo recording and the ultimate packaging of my musical, I will always head very eagerly toward that post in hopes that it’s money I might be receiving, rather than incoherent inter-babble from fat guys drinking whiskey who, unlike Yours Truly, do not have a life.
(Oh well. At least I learned that I don’t like the picture of the Rainbow Kids dancing around making music. It just seems weird and phony. I’ll replace it with something more along the lines of “Power to the People” and see if that works better.)
On the money note, we did receive a $100 donation on the latest bid for seven hundred bucks. I also want to make a true confession here, which will at least assuage my guilty conscience, if not make me any money.
More than once I have taken money intended to be used for the project and instead have paid my phone bill or bought groceries. I did it out of desperation, and it has not helped my cause. It’s true that my rent is $175 more per month than it used to be, and that I am also a disabled man on a fixed income. However, it is also true that $175 is worth the fact that there are no more tweakers knocking on my door day in and out asking me for cigarette lighters (although I do not smoke) and where I’m hiding the drugs (because nobody can possibly type as fast as I do unless they’re high on speed.)
Unfortunately, there are limits to human compassion. Ah, but I digress.
Because of my earlier indiscretions, Danielle and I have set up a fund site where all donations will simply sit in limbo until the $700 is achieved. At this point, I am happy to announce that $100 has already been received toward that goal. So we only have $600 to go.
Let’s get the $600 together, guys — and let’s get this show on the road. It’s not as though the cat has nine lives here. Enough said.
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
Anything Helps – God Bless!
