Campaign closed.

by martianexpatriate

I recently started a gofundme campaign which I canceled. I appreciate the few people who offered to help.

I apologize for any body who I've offended recently. I've been under a lot of stress. I appreciate the offers of help.

I may not be able to respond for a while, but I'll be back.I'm going to the hospital for awhile until I get things sorted out.

Discuss

I wrote an earlier article asking for help which didn’t fully explain what’s going on. If your going to respond to this, I would appreciate it if you would read all of this article first.

You should also understand that my only access to a computer now is at the public library, which limits me to sessions of no longer than an hour at a time. I can get in two, or possibly three sessions today if I’m lucky. During that time I have to handle every email response, coordinate my campaign, and write this article.

I won't have time to do all that. It will not be possible for me to respond to comments sooner than several days, because this library is closed tomorrow, and the buses aren’t running. I’m not choosing to limit my time; i don’t have access.]

If you doubt the truth of anything I say, and are nearby, you may come by and see me in Pueblo, Colorado. I live in Woodhaven Apartments #104, in Belmont.

I'm looking for help.

by martianexpatriate

I've been attempting to start a series online for some time. I was preparing on launching a series of webcomics on the 20th, which would also have included occasional animations. In time, I wanted to build up to a web studio doing CG work and animations. Unfortunately, my computer is not currently usable, and I'm asking for help.

I am disabled. Despite having no car and finding it increasingly difficult to get around, I've been unable to find a job for many years. As things stand now, I don't think I'm going to be able to begin working without a small amount of cash to get me going.

My computer crashed.

by martianexpatriate

I'm writing this from the library. Earlier today I was rendering an image for my story. The computer froze, and when I tried to turn it on, it wouldn't go back on.

You would think that an era like this, stories of class struggle would be common. But not so. If you went to almost every movie that showed in the local cineplex this year, it would be easy to assume that we are a nation of middle class people who are all gainfully employed, and pursuing our careers. A few of them can bringt themselves to mention a “bad economy” or something like that, but there is no intelligent discussion of what's happening.

Indeed, the movies about comic books, aliens, and apocalypse all manage to avoid talking about anything vaguely having to do with our lives.

Apparently in order to make a movie about class struggle, one must go to South Korea. So a number of people did just that.

I've been working on a video for some time. Unfortunately it still needs a bit of work, and I have recently been reminded of the problems with video. So instead of sharing a video this week, I thought I'd share a few interesting thoughts with you this week.

Please stick with me for a minute or two. You can get back to your video experience in a moment.
