i filled the last 40 seconds better than before, but still not especially well.
///////////////////////

I made a patreon page for no other reason than that new users are to be charged 8% instead of 5% of what they supposedly take in from this point onward.
If you are not familiar with patreon, I envy you! It is a website about trying to convince people to donate meager amounts of money at you just for existing. it can be very annoying to see people constantly promoting their own pages so I aim to be cautious in how I do so.
Is there any realistic reason that I should expect any great amount of success from this? Not at all, but I sure beat my self up making a stupid video, just because the site heavily implies you should have one and I was worried the page might not be approved if I didn’t, not realizing that the “review” you submit your page for is instantaneous and probably just a filter looking for words to indicate you are a drug kingpin or Jared Fogle. Meanwhile I had almost no thought left over for what I could do with the page that would be worth attempting to charge people different amounts of money for.

this post contains the sort of description that ensures I stay obscure, so I wisely sort-of-hid it, which is the closest I come to deleting. No, nobody has to sign up for that. I just need to know that I put it there.

Also note that the video is one third irrelevant because I didn’t want to cut off the music, even though the music isn’t complete, particularly the part that occupies the filler section, and so it might as well not be there!
Gosh if I were organized enough that I could make good use of my “skill” or internet fame generating schemes I would have what’s it called a “career” and not bother with dumb old paytreeon which seems to combine them all. Your worth expressed via a number beside your name? An utterly non-functional method for sorting posts? People being encouraged to think of and express themselves as if they are “brands?” It is all there.

I can replace the video since it is “unlisted” and not being shoved at anyone who did not request it. I probably shouldn’t. I probably will. And I probably won’t mention this anywhere else until after I do that! Which means I can expect more email from the website pestering me about how little activity the page has had, because it means no five percent for them.


They all but admit that you can’t become popular unless you look like you already are. “Organic” might as well just be adjective to describe an organ.
If I had ten close friends or family members, I think this would be a rude way to treat them! What sort of person even has an “inner circle?” Cult leaders? Socialist dictators? Well that is who the ideal patreon user aspires to be. ME sending links in email is a REALLY good way to make sure that email doesn’t go anywhere, and I never know because usually people don’t reply to me anyway, and I don’t want to ask because then if they DID get it then I look impatient and pushy even WITHOUT asking them to give me money. I literally have to describe a url on the telephone if I want to send it to anybody. “aiche teetipee colon slash slash… Yes two slashes. No no not back slashes… You know the one that goes back. The upside goes back. Yes exactly. NOT that one. didn’t you get my email? No of course not.”


A few people told me I should activate the mode that charges users immediately rather than at the start of the next month, because otherwise someone can sign up, save all your pictures and distribute them. Gorby I have been trying to get people to do that for YEARS! If leaving this unchecked is what it takes then consider it taken.

Whup this seems sad again. I am not sad! Just tired.


that seems like a rather defeatist moral to take from this.

    A terribly amusing video! I think it does a fine job of showing off the sorts of animations you produce, and it’s nice and brief too, which is always handy for new viewers. The only thing I don’t understand is that cyclops with the weird mohawk at the end!

    dhraiden: There is no time to rest! I have to catch up on what I was not doing because I was worrying about dumb old patreon.
    Are you saying the music reminds you of that? It has an interesting sound to it.

    pindohodor: thank you for approving of the video! Unfortunately I forgot to put any URLs in it so I will still have to upload another, which means an additional opportunity to change my mind about any other part. Even though url OUGHT to be obvious but i believe something similar WAS addressed in the video.
    I do not understand the ending either but the cyclops seemed fairly emphatic about it.
