I need to grow some balls

I am not very eager to actually put money into a new business, since last time I did that, it was a disaster. I dropped nearly 5 grand on a company that's made me exaclty $17. So, lately I've been trying business things that take no money. The Bruce/Sam...

86 people who

[86 people who saw Signs and loved it changed their minds after reading this review.][1] [1]: http://www.xmission.com/~maddox/signs.html

holy crap.

So, I made these VCDs of hard to find Bruce/Sam shorts from their high school and college days. They've been selling really well. I've sold 10 now, with at least 3 more orders on the way. I've been selling them via eBay for $7 each, which I thought was a...

So work is

So, work is going well. I'm enoying it. I get my hands cut up every single day. There's really not a lot to learn, but everything needs to be practiced. The new soda of the hour: Mr. Green. It's by Sobe, and it's freaking awesome. I was disappointed after...

So it was

So, it was an exciting day at work today. It started off normally enough. I was cutting some frames and doing what it is we framers do, and all of the sudden the lights flickered out. We figured we blew a circuit in the basement, but since we are in the...

Weird happenings.

So, I got home from work last night and Jaimee was already here. We went to dinner at Chili's, and right when we got home I got a phone call from Ryan Morge, who I went to high school with. He approached me about several projects he has planned. We decided...

Cheap. cheap, cheap.

For anyone who has ever wanted their own web space/domain name, here's a neat link: [https://www.securesslserver.com/hostonce/cgi-bin/special_order.html][1] $30 for a year, free domain registration, and price freeze. That's $2.50/month. That's cheap....

Freddy vs. Jason

Freddy vs. Jason starts filming September 9th. Rob Zombies "House of 1000 Corpses" comes out on video in October. So does Jason X on DVD. It's a good time to be a slasher movie fan.

Signs sucks.

Yeah, so, Signs is a terrible movie. I'm really glad I just downloaded it rather than actually paying to see it. I hate M. Night Shyamalan with every fiber of my being. He's terrible. Okay, the 6th Sense was a great movie. Fantastic. I loved it. I still...

Up way too late on my new project.

For those of you interested, I'm now [selling VCDs][1]. 'Signs' should be available tomorrow. [1]: http://junkmachine.com/vcd/

Back to the grindstone.

So, I just got the call. I got the job at the art gallery. In one way it's good. I get free inspiration by framing artwork all day. I'm sure I'll get discounts on framing my own stuff. I don't have to work with customers. The bad part: I don't really...

woah.

Yeah, so my interview at the framing place just ended. I'll make $7/hour, which is less than half of what I made when I was working at Iona. I don't have the job yet, but I think I'll probably get it. In other news, Fabish got engaged. Weird. The goofy...

So I've been

So, I've been fairly productive the last few days. Drawing lots of stuff for specialized submissions, trying to get the addresses I'm sending to organized and not doing a good job with it. I really need to clean the apartment, too. Maybe later today, but...

Food I want right now:

With my new diet, I've had to give up a lot of food I love. I thought the cravings would go away, but alas, they have not. So, the list: Cheese fries, double quarter pounder from McDonald's, Hamburger Helper, anything from Long John Silvers, brownies, Mr....

So I haven't

So, I haven't heard back from anyone else regarding illustration jobs. Not that I expected to just yet, mind you. My dad bought me gift certificates to the local art store so I could stock up on supplies necessary to get my submissions done. In other...

Barely 24 hours after losing an illustration job...

... I get this email back in reply to an email I sent yesterday: Thanks for writing, Tim. I had a look at your web site. A few items did not load properly, unfortunately. But overall you seem to be a talented artist. I've bookmarked your site for future...

So it started

So, it started off as a bad day today. First off, my pornography career went right down the drain. I got the email today saying that my porn drawings weren't attracting a big crowd, so my services were no longer needed. I had really been banking on that...

crap.

crap.

The amazing pootastic adventure

As mentioned in jaimee's journal, we went to see the fireworks last night. Let me first explain the "cleaning the system" process. Fabish clued me into this while we were still were roommates. Basically you just eat very little and drink a lot of that...

Wednesday my sister

Wednesday my sister had her traditional 4th of July dinner at her house. Jaimee came along and got to meet the fam. Today is the 4th, so of course we have to go watch fireworks by the river. I just got back from seeing Lilo and Stitch with my sister,...
