Chronic pain and job loss has been a brutal blow to my household income, and I am attempting to make up for some of the loss.  I am running some freelancing with a goal of $1,000 
The question is what can I do for you?

I can run an RPG for you and your friends (RISUS, FAE, Fate, Bids)
I can run a one on one story game
I can run a one shot of West City Supers, a FAE street level superhero game of working class heroes, just trying to earn a living.
I can walk you through a guided meditation
I can help you brainstorm game design
I can playtest your game and provide feedback.
I can be a pair of ears to vent to
I am up for suggestions, if you are looking for things other than the above.

These will be Audio via hangout.
Due to my medical issues theses sessions will be capped at two hours running length.  I can be Paid Via Paypal, and it is PWYW, suggested price is $10 an hour, or $5 an hour per person if I am hosting multiple people.  Please reply on the original post or by direct message if interested.

My paypal is Strathadan @ Gmail.com (remove spaces) Anyone paying more than $1 may choose to get a no DRM copy of one of the following, anyone donating $3 or more gets all three.  Please send me a direct message letting me know which you may like and I will zip you the appropriate link(s)

FARM Champions: a Fantasy RPG with Four Classes, and Unlimited Jobs, giving every character a multiclass feel.  No two fighters need to feel the same.  Mechanics involve a simple 2d6 task resolution.  Suggested tone is village level heroics, less "save the world", and more "save the farmhouse", but it can easily be scaled upward depending on the adventures given.

Bids and MicroBids: An any setting quick play token based RPG.  These games are great for play by post, or low prep games.

DeScriptors: This wordgame story game lets you use your character's collected adjectives for bidding on success.  Search high and low for new adjectives, and take a few failures so that you may add some words to the pile.  Great as a simple party game or a 0 prep RPG, it comes with a wacky over the top Post Apocalyptic setting teaser.

A few more thoughts on my OSR mindset having ran 5e.
I've often thought that I'd like to write up my own version of rules, atleast a hack.  I think I will probably still do that, atleast for my own peace of mind.  As I've said before those Lab Lord/OSR/B/X rules fit neatly in my head.  After running 5e for th...

This anti-vaccine stuff, I have to tell you, pure bullshit.  Dangerous bullshit that gets people killed.

http://thedailybanter.com/2014/03/this-is-why-fighting-the-anti-vaccination-crowd-matters/  

I am just going to leave this up here. Science, it works
It's easy to point and laugh at people like Jenny McCarthy and Kristin Cavallari, idiots peddling C-list celebrity pseudoscience and mothers who believe that their ability to create life has naturally imbued them with inherent moral superiority and a mainline into some secret medical knowledge doctors just don't have. It would be easy to dismiss their arrogance and their ongoing insemination of the national conversation with ignorance -- if only ...

Bernie Sanders wants to help heal the sick. Sounds like my kind of guy.
In this clip, Bernie Sanders sits down with ABC's George Stephanopoulos to talk about the healthcare ruling and the future of healthcare in America. Sanders proposes the expansion of Medicaid for all and eventually converting to a single-payer system: “...

A question worth boosting.
 
Does anyone know a good TNG/DS9/VGR era fan series that is half decent? The two I found ... I can get by the green screen everything but the acting ... I need at least something on a high school drama club level.

Since I started writing this blog, I’ve used Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder more or less interchangeably. That’s because, in a lot of ways, they are – after all, Pathfinder is directly derived from the 3rd edition D&D rules. But if you’re looking to…

While it's true that some things in science fiction are still in the realm of fiction, and it looks like we may have to wait quite some time for them (where's my jetpack?!) in others, reality has allready overtaken fiction. The development of electronics and the technologies that depend on them has ocurred a lot faster than many could anticipate.
At some point reality overtook fiction and began making way cooler gadgets than apparently any filmmaker could conceive.

"Their research, "Achieving synchronization with active hybrid materials: Coupling self-oscillating gels and piezoelectric (PZ) films," appeared June 24th in the journal Scientific Reports, published by Nature. The studies combine Balazs' research in Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) gels, a substance that oscillates in the absence of external stimuli, and Levitan's expertise in computational modeling and oscillator-based computing systems. By working with Dr. Victor V. Yashin, research assistant professor of chemical and petroleum engineering and lead author on the paper, the researchers developed design rules for creating a hybrid "BZ-PZ" material."
