Carting a Sick Stick: Sic a Tart Kiss on an Art Trick (Part 2: The Store)

Some Lovely Things To Sell



I've mostly suspended my efforts at "commerce," having determined myself to be simply a poor capitalist.  I should probably get rid of this link altogether.  It's a lot easier to just write in a disclaimer, however.

With respect to the "former" Media Empire, and particularly Our Flagship Media, fairly secret: the tower of approach: as fundamentally enriching as I find it to toil ceaselessly in the fields of text for art's sake, there lingers that little thing that has always been missing for me: a suitcase full of cash.

And so I set out (once upon a time, Disclaim! Disclaim!) to contrive some lovely things to sell.  If you care for the words, peruse their associated merchandise! And weep with consternation at how little is left for sale.


[I've ended the royalty free license program.  You had your chance.  It's all mine from now on for forever minus a day, assuming Disney's got my back in congress].



IT'S ALL ABOUT THE TEXT.  So why not a graphic novel?



(Please note that downloads of The Bootstrap Gospel album - see my Bandcamp page link below - includes a download of the Graphic Novel as a bonus).

Nobody EVER buys the Buys the Bootstrap Gospel Graphic Novel... (and since the digital sales provider who used to host has moved to a fee based model, nobody will. Link removed). which is CRAZY.  Crazy and wrong. The final chapter's segment, “A Poem In Ten Deaths,” with its scathing deconstruction of Schrödinger's famous thought experiment, is easily worth its wholly nominal cost alone!  A demented visual tour through the state of my mind circa 2006.






SONG LYRICS set to music and preserved as digital audio recordings.  A perfect distraction to drown out the noise of confounding existence


You can purchase most of such recordings as exist.  Preview anything for free.  I’ve got certain unreasonable hangups over the convention of the “Donations” button, but in the event that there is a Mysterious Benefactor shadowing me out there, pining only for some venue to shower me with gifts, well I've set the Greatest Hits and the altogether more challenging Transition Protocol to allow “pay what you want” pricing.  So you can go hog wild.  Or also just give me a dollar.  Well I don't get the whole dollar frankly, but you know what I mean.  Hosting and commerce courtesy of Bandcamp, who are dope, as well as fly.



THE SPIRIT is willing, but the flesh needs a Tee Shirt

Does what it says on the tee shirt.  The once and future emblem of the True Fan



WHAT ELSE?

What did you have in mind?




Didn't there used to be some kind of crazy home-rolled crowdfunding campaign here?  Yes you're very smart.  Shut up.
