This puny inexhaustible voice. 
In 2009, I wrote and self-published "They Shoot Porn Stars, Don't They?" It's a 10,000-word longform investigation of how the Great Recession impacted the adult movie industry. It was written for a specific publication, but I ended up publishing it myself. What I've written here is sort of an addendum or annotated-ish version of it.

All great works start with S.
Halston. I went and saw this Halston show today. Obviously: very fly. The thing that struck me, being in proximity to the pieces, is how relevant they are to what we're doing. The acronym: KISS. Translation: Keep It Simple Stupid.

"Flogging the Freelancer" is a blog post a day on freelancing in the gig economy. Browse the archives here. I've become oddly obsessed with automating shit in my life lately. Oddly because I'm not a robot, and I mostly think the whole quantification hack zone is a bog of absurdity. That said, I've had wild success improving my credit rating over the last several years in part due to automation. In 2010, I actually didn't have a credi...

Reproducing the self.
"Flogging the Freelancer" is a blog post a day on freelancing in the gig economy. Browse the archives here. There's a really lovely piece in today's WSJ: "The Power of Daily Writing ." It's about a man who's been journaling since February 24, 1964. His first entry began: “I have decided to be a writer. I will it, thus: I am a writer. Now—by definition if for no other reason, writers are distinguished chiefly by the fact ...

I dream of dying.

In the depths of winter I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. —Camus (via Clayton Cubitt) About five days ago, I stopped eating sugar. I don't eat a lot of sugar, or sugar-like things, but I stopped it altogether. It was making me crazy, having all that crap in my system. Now I feel about 50% ...

"Flogging the Freelancer" is a blog post a day on freelancing in the gig economy. Browse the archives here. You said it, Backhoe Failure Meme Generator Tragically, I forgot to blog yesterday. Originally, I set out to blog 365 days this year. Yesterday, I failed to do so. Although, after setting my goal for the year, I realized it was a leap year, so I can still blog 365 times this year. Regardless, I failed in the consecutive depart...

Walk "Flogging the Freelancer" is a blog post a day on freelancing in the gig economy. Browse the archives here. I went for a walk today because I try and do a walk almost every day and many days I fail but I keep trying. On Friday and Saturday I got a lot of work done on this book proposal I'm working on and Sunday I had a headache so bad that I spent the day in bed. By Monday the headache was lingering around the edges and then ...
