Life Update: 100 followers

I am writing this on Monday, even though my usual routine is posting on the weekend. Which I didn’t this week. Lol.

I’ve just hit 100 subscribers. My goal this year was to get one of my social media projects to 100 followers. It looked like this blog was the most likely to hit that number. This year I finally had a regular posting routine and actually had things to post.

A very special thanks to my readers and those responding to my posts. Hope you have a good holidays and a decent Christmas.

Important Life updates:

  • I have a brand new studio and will be planning some new projects for next year
  • I am officially driving on my own with a Restricted License
  • I could be a full-time carer by next year
  • Officially married as of September
  • I might be finally out of the Dole Years by next year

Blog goals after 100 subs:

I won’t be focusing on subs for this blog next year, instead, I will be working on my other platforms. I need to go back to DeviantArt and using YT and my Facebook page is in desperate need of an upgrade, lol. There will still be regular weekend updates on this blog. Eventually, this blog will be mostly essays on my other projects, on top of my usual essays on random things I’m interested in. Epic Christmas/New Years post will be coming later.

At this point, I’m also asking for your input. Is there anything you want to read more about on this blog? Leave it in the comments below.

Why all of you should observe the Sabbath

Yes, even if you’re not following any particular religion, even if you are agnosic or athiest you should be observing the sabbath, right now. And not just because God told you to.

Before you jump onto your keyboard screaming about church: first you might want to learn to read, then find me where in the bible it says ‘sabbath = go to church’. Because I’m a bible reading christian and haven’t found it yet.

Instead, Sabbath basically means ‘rest’. As in, drop everything and rest. No working. Even if it’s paid. Going to church is optional, but it is helpful having a day set aside for it!

The Sabbath was always officially held on the Saturday. Yes, Saturday, not Sunday. Anyone else saying otherwize is lying. But the aposltes stated it didn’t matter which day between the two you use to observe the sabbath, as long as you did it. Just take a day off. And worship if you need to.

Even God rested on the Sabbath, that’s how it was invented. If God needs a rest day, so do you, so take one.

Its not for the sake of a rule. If there is a sin being commited when you don’t observe it, the victim is yourself. God can set rules for yourself. Do you really want to deny yourself a break?

Today we are living in a toxic culture where success can no longer be measured by acheivments but how many massive burnouts it took to get there.

Look at your favorate celebs having meldowns and suddenly doing weird crap. Are they really ‘crazy’? Really? Or did the toxic culture of Hollywood do that to them? Marylin Monroe died because there was no #MeToo movment to support her. Just sayin. Look at their burnouts, their months in rehab, their mental health problems. This is what it looks like when you have no Sabbath.

The richest, most succesful people that have everything, are all really depressed. How many of them have a Sabbath?

What is worth go go go go go? No sit down for hours? Skipping multiple meals a day for the sake of time? Flaking everything because you are ‘too busy’, or just because you forget and forget and forget and forget because you are constantly double booked three days a week? Ending up in hospital from exhaustion and burnout from your multiple skipped meals? You better be getting some good coin. And you should be getting twice the coin if you never have a Sabbath.

I can’t tell you what to do though. I can’t tell you when to take one, just take one. Though I can tell you not to drag other people into your downward spiral of burnout, or expect everyone else to keep up with your inhuman level of self abuse, or blame anyone for your own ability to book your own scedual.

JUST TAKE A SABBATH!!!

via I won’t be the ‘tame autistic’ – The need for real Autistic involvement not just ticking a box

Don’t move to Hollywood

There is a huge problem in Hollywood at the moment and I don’t know if they are even talking about it.

How much is Hollywood talking about Mental Health? Is it common knowledge yet that Hollywood is a massively toxic culture?

We look up to these stars too much and dream of being where they are, and we also don’t. Because now we know what Hollywood does to our favorite stars. And we don’t want to be there, even though we secretly do.

 

Hollywood gives its stars the biggest houses, the best cars, the top careers, but at a price. How many of our stars will be dying of old age? How many of them have already died of drug overdoses, drunk driving, suicide, heart attacks? Is it possible for a celebrity to die any other way?

 

How many of your favorite stars have sold out? How many of them have burnt out and had a breakdown, ended up in rehab, became a social media joke? That doesn’t just come from nowhere. Why are they plastering on a fake face to slap on a product they don’t even care about selling?

Do you really think most of the profits go to the star? How much of their time is actually spent making someone else money?

Is making fun of Charlie Sheen called for?

 

They are walking on the eggshells of our entitlement. When someone shot up Adriana Grande’s concert she profusely apologized to her audience. What did you do wrong, Adriana? Nothing! Did you shoot up the concert yourself? Someone should be apologizing to you for ruining something you put so much work into!

 

It’s not a conspiracy theory, it is official now. Hollywood is run by peadophiles and rapists. They’ve been getting away with it for decades. Hollywood throws money at it to cover it up. The predators probably found some legal loophole where they can literally buy their victims. It’s not new. We’re just finally talking about it. Do we still want to join Hollywood? Do we want to pay these people to rape their stars? Would it be worth boycotting the work of rapists?

 

Maybe the Illuminati is real. Maybe this is it.

If you are a celeb and you are reading this: Please take a holiday! For your own sake!

Signs you suffer from affluenza

Affluenza is a crippling mental condition that affects thousands all over the world. Once you know the symptoms the disease can be stopped before it spreads.

Your bank account has more zeros than you have IQ points

But that’s ok. Who needs to function like an adult when you can just buy thinking? That made no sense to me either.

Your friends stare at you like you’re speaking Chinese when you bring up what shops you got what at.

Oh, honey, not everyone goes all the way to France just to by a top. That’s just you

You are surprised when people don’t magically become your friend once wave money in their face

And you wonder why you keep losing friends. Maybe your current friends should help you figure that one out. Its what you pay them for after all.

You wonder why your friends won’t see you anymore

It’s a two-hour walk to your McMansion in the middle of nowhere. Maybe you should pick them up in one of your ten cars?

People suddenly get angry when you lose your job and start begging for money while living in your McMansion with your ten cars and a team of servants

I mean, how unreasonable of them!

You seem to have missed the news that slavery is now illegal, while you can easily afford to pay people for their work

Don’t forget to winge about millennials who keep demanding a weekend after working triple shift with no extra pay. How dare they!

Do you suffer from affluenza? Let me know in the comments.


My blog is nearly at 100 followers. I don’t know what I want to do when it hits that milestone. Since its birthday month, I will probably just buy some more alcohol that I don’t need. Once I’ve got this to 100 followers I might start making YT vids again. I’ve finally got momentum to post this vlog weekly (when I can). I will start small and if asked I will deny that I am just making the vids so that I have content to post here once a week.

If you want updates on either of these platforms I have a FB page:

Things that will make me walk out of your church

You’re not even Christian

 

You say you’re a church. You call yourselves Christians. Are you sure?

If you’ve been around the church lifestyle for a while, I’m sure you’ve heard of all them people who magically turned into cars after walking into a garage.

Anyone can say they are a Christian and they go to church. It’s too easy. I am a 40 year old gay Chinese man. See, it really works!

But if I don’t see the Christianity, your entire faith is hot air and meaningless mouth noises.

I go to church to see people gathered in the name of Jesus! So let me see it!

There is witchcraft in your church

 

No I don’t mean your church is full of green skinned women whose molecular structure completely disintegrates when it comes into contact with water. It’s 2018. Men can be witches too.

And it’s not just spells either.

Manipulating the world around you in unnatural ways, playing with powers you don’t know anything about and shouldn’t be playing with is witchcraft.

Do you know what is also witchcraft?

Word curses. “You will never do this you can’t do that you are this because of this and that which you have no control over”

You can speak them over yourself and live in unhappiness for the rest of your life.

What’s worse than that is speaking them over someone else. Disgusting. You are purpusfully casting witchcraft over someone.

So before you’re about to speak something like that over someone, shut you gob. Before someone shuts it for you. And that someone might not even be of this world so be careful when playing that dangerous witchcraft game!

 

You got the wrong spirit

 

Why is everyone rolling on the floor screaming?

Yeh, you have a spirit alright. There’s a chance it might not be the Holy one though. Haven’t seen him yet, but so far I have seen a Kundilini.

As I said in #1, anyone can say they are anything. There’s no reason this wouldn’t apply to spirits too.

So make sure you can recognise which spirits are in your church and only allow the ones you truly want.

And if you lie to and gaslight me about which spirit is in front of my face, bye. Your church could be dangerous.

You’ve set yourself up to fail in your ministries

 

I’m not talking about the pastorship or the elders or all the little things you’re doing outside the church. No, its not the music team either.

It’s your background workers. The backbone of your church. The ‘little people’ that actually keep the church running. I’m talking about the cleaners and the coffee bitches. I’m talking about the arthritic ushers that have been standing up for an hour before the service even started and need to take a sabbath or two in the days after. Oh, you thought the Sunday was the sabbath for these people? LOL!

Make sure the jobs are well allocated. If I see 10 jobs dumped onto one person, you no longer have a management role in the church. The job is now going to 83 year old Deidre who brings her three cats to church in a shopping cart and shows you the same Brag Book of her gay grandson every week, which is actually just filled with magizine cuttouts of five different celebrities. I think she will do a better job. Go sit in the back of the church and read your bible again while the adults are discussing the running of the church building.

If your team members are not respected, I’m not coming back to your church unless I’m bringing popcorn to watch the thing collapse in front of your face. Probably with the camera on my phone so that I can post it to a cringe compilation later.

Your healings/prophecies are fake

 

As a member of the disability community, I’ve met every fake healer in my country. I have yet to see a real healing in my lifetime. I have seen some good performances on stage, but never followed anyone up to see if there actually was any healing. All the ‘healings’ on YT are fake.

Healings from God isn’t a circus trick. God is very much caught up with modern tech, but he doesn’t heal just for a facebook vid.

Yeh, the leg growing trick is cool. Do you know who else I’ve seen doing tricks like that? Psychics who were exposed as fake. Do you know who else does tricks like that? My step-dad, the evangilist. He doesn’t do them as healings though, he does them as amature magic tricks to entertain his kids ministry.

The tricks themselves aren’t a bad thing. They’re actually entertaining. It’s when you lie to your audience that they are legit ‘healings’ that’s going to make me walk out. Lying in church is a nah from me.

All I’ve seen so far are stage shows. The only healing I’ve actually received from God was gradual, and most of my disabilities that have been prayed for have gotten worse anyway.

It’s gotten to the point where I’ve actually started refusing healings.

And since I now believe in the social model of disability, I demand they pray for something else. Like my first job at 28. Or for someone else, like peace and healing for a family member dying of cancer. Or poor little children in Africa. Funny how they never pray for my financial problems, but then shove the chuck bucket in my face. What you need money for, bub?

I have seen some legit prophets though. It might because I’m biased as I’m a massive prophecy nerd. But I’ve seen some legit prophets and I’ve seen fake ones.

I’ve seen prophets prophetizing all over the church. Prophetizing over people that there will be money and cars. That they know someone with a J in their name. Or was it a Z? An M? Anyone have a G in their name? Their prophecies are so legit that I’ve heard multiple fake psychics say the exact thing word for word. And they are all vague enough to apply to everyone so it must be true. And here comes the chuck bucket again.

I have seen prophets that straight up refused to accept any offerings or money from us, and requested that we put our money back into the church or a charity or something. They were always unsure if the word was coming from themself or the Spirit. Their prophecies were very specific and actually came true. Hmmm.

And speaking of chuck buckets.

 

You worship another god

 

You say you worship the God of the bible. Yet the rituals in your church are to other gods. When you offer your people prosperity in this world, then pass the chuck bucket around, you worship the demon god Mammon.

Mammon is the Prince of consumerism and toxic capitalism. He is destroying our culture with gluttony and waste. And he owns your pastors and your churches too.

Watch out for the demon Mammon.

Moloch is in churches also. He is the one they used to sacrifice babies to. I’m not even going to go into how he ended up in our churches.

Jezebel is supposed to be a big one also but I don’t know enough about her yet. She’s related to narcissism. She’s in our churches.

And of course, Lucifer himself is worshiped in your churches. If you know how to find him, you will see him. But he is there in many, many churches.

 

You can’t read

 

If you have a learning disability, I’m not talking to you in this paragraph.

I am talking to you if you act like never reading the bible is an achievement.

I am talking to you if you are ‘quoting verses’ that aren’t even in the bible and can’t even provide book, chapter, verse.

I’m talking to you if you ‘quote’ a verse and we have to ask you which holy text you got that from because the same verse in our bible says the complete opposite.

I’m talking to you if a verse about Jesus chopping onions for his tea is suddenly a commandment to round up all brown people into concentration camps.

Can you even read, bro? Were you high when you read this? How can I trust you if you can’t even read a damn bible?

 

You all smile like Ted Bundy

Honey, take this advice from an autistic: You’re not supposed to smile with your eyes wide open. It terrifies people. Also, having said expression plastered on your face all day is also terrifying. God did not tell you to look like someone just asked you if you killed all those women.

Christianity is not fake positivity. And fake positivity isn’t even healthy. I’ve seen fake positivity in the media. And the level of fake positivity in the church is something else. You’ve probably seen the psychopath/manic smiles in cults, where the signs of fake ‘happyness’ are painful to watch. Yes, some regular Christian churches do look this bad. And yours might be one of them

So I will be literally running from your church because its about to become a cult, or its just run by psychopaths who don’t know how to smile properly.

You’re scaring people away from the truth of Jesus. Do you even want to get the message out?

 

You’re getting zero converts because you can’t even communicate with humans anymore

How are you going to get your message out when you are so isolated that you don’t even speak the same language as the local population?

Yes you are allowed to use modern technology. Entertainment itself won’t send you straight to hell.

Also: It’s 2018. Technology isn’t a tool anymore. It’s part of the culture. We have mass media. The media is now part of our language and how we communicate.

The point of the church is to gather and spread a message. If you hog the message to yourself and can’t even communicate with the people outside your group, you’ve already failed.

 

You’re not a church

 

I’m seeing a lot of things. I’m seeing money making. I’m seeing gossip. I’m seeing judgment. I’m seeing mass hysteria probably caused by illegal drugs. I’m seeing enabeling of mental illness. Not seeing a lot of churching.

 

I’m glad I found the church I’m in and I can see great things in its future. But there are a lot of toxic things in church culture that we can probably afford to dump.

 

I try to post every weekend.

I also have a facebook

Returning to Lemuria

After progress on my novel stagnated for at least 2 years, I’ve finally gone back to it.

I’m giving the prologue one final chance to save itself before I cut it. This time I’m letting Tane write it from his POV. Before it was supposed to be his POV but was bogged down with description. Now the focus was just to put him in a New Zealand mountain forest in the middle of winter. As always, the chapter is a lot better. My drafts tend to always be rewrites, there’s not much editing.

I have some ideas that might completly change the plot in some ways, but the story itself will hopefully be mostly the same.

I still don’t know what else to do with it before publishing. I’m going with plan B of self pubing on kindle. Everything else I have tried just ends in road blocks. It will probably go up with no proffessional editing, because even that has a massive road block. I might do my own cover, the one I have now isn’t bad for a first cover but I think it needs to be more proffessional. That will happen after this rewrite.

Why you should not spend money to start your buisness!

.This year I’m learning a lot of things about starting a platform, be it FB, YT, Blogging, even a new business etc.

One piece of advice that I am mostly getting from YT is the biggest load of porkies I’ve ever seen.

Here it is:

“Buy this first! Then that! And fork out money for this this this this and that that that that that that or you will NEVER EVER be successful until you’ve dumped your entire bank account into it! Lol!”

If you’re just starting out with your platform as a side gig, this is the worst advice you could possibly get. I’m convinced that the people who give this are purposefully trying to sabotage beginners so that they don’t have competition.

And here’s why the advice is bullshit:

With what money, bitch???

If this thing you are starting is just a side hustle/hobby, you should not be pouring all your money into it, as other ‘famous’ people suggest.

In fact, side hustles should be almost if not completely free for you to start up. The point is that it is something you enjoy and it brings in a little extra cash. If you’re haemorrhaging your entire bank account into it, it’s not a side gig. It’s a main hustle. And you’ve just put all your eggs in one basket, which is probably the stupidest financial decision you could possibly make when you’re starting out.

Just look what happened to all your favourite YTers when the ad apocalypse happened. When getting paid just to turn on your camera and do whatever first became a thing, everyone jumped on the bandwagon. People even quit their jobs to do it full time. It was at this point that I saw their failure coming a mile away. How do you even expect that to last? Some of them didn’t even back up their paid-to-film-their-boring-life with merch, which would have been the most obvious next step for me, before I even knew anything about money. And yet they continued to sit on this one income, expecting to do the same thing over and over forever. Then the YT bubble collapsed. Suddenly you were wading through piles of videos of YTers screaming at their cameras “BAWWWWW the money disappeared! I can’t pay my bills! Give me money!” And that is how perfectly good, talented people dumped it all to become e-beggers, just to pay their bills for the mansion they bought with their YT money. And how is this YouTubes fault? You didn’t even have a backup. Or you can go back to the dayjob you abandoned for a platform that was never meant to last.

But not all of us are those YTers. Some of us are massively underpaid in their main day job, if not downright unemployed. We’re using what we actually have. The end, that’s it. Sometimes you’re forced to spend what you don’t have. If you have to skip meals to pay bills, pay all that first before chucking money you don’t have at all the latest overpriced crap that some YTer told you to buy in order to be a YTer.

And if you are some big name touting that one has to have a certain ‘quality’ of expensive crap just to get anywhere, if you are shooting people down by saying they will never get anywhere using second hand, obsolete supplies because that’s all they can afford: Shut your fat gob!!!

Jenna Marbles sometimes still uses her phone or a webcam. So do many other big YTers. You don’t need an entire production studio when starting out making little videos. One of the latest trends today is Mukbang. The most important thing in those videos is the food, not the overpriced Hollywood camera used to film it. Some Mukbangs aren’t even edited. They don’t need to be edited. So no, you don’t need the latest software used by Weta Studios to edit simple videos like Mukbangs. ASMR, vlogs, mukbangs can do perfectly well edited in a broken version of Microsoft Movie Maker.

All the best YTers and influencers started out with the cheapest crap. Including the ones giving you this dangerous advice of affluenza. They are hypocrites who are straight up lying to you.

Starting out with arts and crafts, you don’t need the most expencive equipment and supplies, anyone who tells you otherwise is setting you up to fail. Bob Ross used cheap paintbrushes I could probably get from the Warehouse or even a $2 shop. Right now my strategy is to sell small, cheap paintings and use all the profits to buy more art supplies. That could be your goal too.

I’m doing this because do you honestly think I can afford the highest end of oil paints while unemployed and disabled? LOL.

And pouring money into writing as a side hustle. Are you serious??? I haven’t heard much ‘advice’ demanding that you do this. But anyone who tells you to empty your bank account just to write is an absolute scam artist.

Of all the hustles I’ve mentioned today, this should be the most inexpensive, if not FREE to do.

Writing should be done anywhere on anything. Anyone who screeches that you ‘need’ to buy and buy and buy and buy this and that overpriced software/supplies before you even start writing should be slapped! This software should be tools to help you and make things easier for you, not requirements to just bashing your words down.

I’m using Open Office and am slowly transitioning to Google Docs. I am now boycotting the moneygrubbing scam that is Word. Over $100 to use a writing software for only one year???? Really??? Are you high on something, Microsoft? Linux is killing your business! Some of us have to save up for months to by a new pair of pants from the Warehouse! I will use whatever software I have at the time!!!

And all of that is when I’m not physically writing in an actual notebook with an actual pen, both of which shouldn’t be overpriced either. Anyone who tells you that you ‘need’ some speshul pen and speshul notebook/paper for some massive price is scamming you! Your pen and your paper for writing should be special to you, not your wallet.

I’m even avoiding using a professional editor. Everyone in the writers’ groups will scream at you that you ‘need’ one. But once again: With what money, bitch? Editors aren’t free!!!! They charge money for good reason! They need to eat too! So I might go with another option, or just straight up skip that step before I publish. An editor is something I could get once I’ve actually made money from my books. Otherwise, I have nothing to pay an editor with. And as an artist myself, I couldn’t bring myself to pay them in ‘exposure’.

And then there’s book covers. Yeh…

Book cover artists should absolutely be paid. With money. Which is why I can’t have one. Being an artist, again, I will do it myself until there is money.

This ‘advice’ is one of the biggest ripoffs I have ever seen. Even when you actually have money, it’s a massive scam.

Even if you don’t want to make money, even if you just want it as a hobby, you shouldn’t be expected to spend too much on it.

If you do want to make money, you still shouldn’t spend too much, only what you can, especially if there is no money for extra things in your life. It should support itself. It should not make you homeless because you put all your eggs into one basket.

There is an endless amount of actually good business advice out there, I’m just starting to find it myself. Affluenza is not good business. Quite the opposite actually.

And I am more than happy to use better quality stuff if someone buys it for me 🙂

Why you should want fame

Everyone keeps telling me “you shouldn’t do it for fame”.

When they talk about starting and building a YT channel or blog or any kind of social media platform “you shouldn’t do it for money or fame”.

And that seems to be the best advice they give and everyone stands up and cheers.

 

Bullshit.

 

Why else would you do it?

And what are they doing? Exactly that!

 

Here are some good reasons for why you should want fame.

I will use myself as an example:

My dream is to publish books and create art. Say I’ve finished a book or a painting. What do I do next? If I want to get it out of my house, selling it is a good option.

Tell me, how TF am I going to sell something to someone when they know nothing about me or the product? Explain.

Would you buy a product before you know it exists? How does that work? When do you buy a product? Usually, after you know it exists, that’s how it works in reality-land. What are the products you buy the most? The famous ones!!! The ones that are well known for providing exactly what you are looking for.

To sell a product successfully you need to know about Marketing. What is marketing? GETTING SOMETHING FAMOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

If you want to sell something without getting famous, you’ve already failed and I don’t know why you would even bother.

Even Banksy is famous. Who the hell is Banksy? I don’t know! No-one does! That’s the point of Banksy! And yet he is famous! Even trying to be anonymous and ‘anti-fame’ will get you famous if you want to put something out there.

To all those hipsters who follow all the latest ‘underground anti-fame’ stuff, sitting on your high-horse, looking down your snotty nose at everyone even slightly interested in ‘fame’: just WTF are you doing? How do you even know about that ‘underground’ stuff? Because it’s bloody famous for being underground!!! And thus you have contributed to the concept of fame.

 

If you honestly believe you can completely escape fame by doing this, you are delusional.

If you honestly believe you can churn out work and get some views etc without needing fame to get you those views, you are delusional.

Even if you don’t want views or subs or follows or likes, you still want to get your message out there, don’t you?

And how will you do that?

First, by getting eyeballs and earholes onto your message.

And what form does that take?

Views, likes, follows and subs.

So what is all that called?

That’s called fame, honeybun.

 

If you honestly believe that fame and getting your message out there have to be completely separate, you are delusional.

 

If you’re not doing YT/blogging/influencing to get famous, maybe you shouldn’t be doing YT/blogging/influencing.

2018

I spent 2017 flinging Cvs everywhere. To tell you how successful that is in Nelson I will just say that today I spent all day watching random YT videos and the day before that. And probably all of tomorrow.

I used TradeMe for a while. Once I had cut the jobs I couldn’t physically get to via tricycle or bus with arthritis, then cut the physically impossible due to disability work, then cut everything that expected me to magically get experience from nowhere, I was usually left with one available job in total. I couldn’t even say if I were interested in these jobs, it was too early to say anything like that because these were usually jobs I knew nothing about. But I flung a CV at them anyway. I wanted part-time work for experience, as I had none. I still got rejections anyway. Even once I could put my familiarity with a cash register on my CV.

2018 I will be giving up the search as it is wasting time and energy that could be spent on art and writing, the work I actually want. So I am looking for side gigs that I can make out of this work.

Solo artists are small business owners. Artists are a brand. So I will need to focus on things like that at some point.

This year I need to focus on one project at a time because I am usually all over the place and I still have projects that have been sitting there literally for years.

In 2018 you might see more of me on this blog.

Happy New Year! Hope yours will be good.
