Maniacal Laugh

On the advice of the internets and H, I finally went to the goddamn doctor to talk about the goddamn depression that’s been plaguing me all goddamn winter. It goddamn helped, a little. They suggested all sorts of pills, including many that I’ve tried before: Wellbutrin (makes me manic), Abilify (gives me crazy high blood sugar), Zyprexa (causes weight gain), and Latuda. That one is new, and is an anti-psychotic used for both schizophrenia and bi-polar. If I can afford…

I do find it funny that I even get paid to do that, given that I’ve never even taken the LSAT, let alone a law class. Getting a free…

Kickstarter Time!

After much cajoling and craziness, The Horror Within Kickstarter is up and running. I’ve supported plenty of things at Kickstarter over the years, so it’s my hope that all that good karma will help me now. Yes, I realize I’m referring to a bogus, Americanized version of karma–still, I’m hoping for it. After one day, we’re just shy of the 5% mark. I’ve sent a few press releases out, and plan to send a bunch more now that we’re live.…
