You know when you are getting old when your pubic hair starts to turn gray.

Good to know. Awesome. I'm still in the clear, then.

And for those interested in the technical side of pubic hair and grayness: http://www.professorshouse.com/family/h ... -grey.aspx

Damn, I haven't touched this in forever...

Most of what I've put up on Scribd.com is derivative fiction--a disgusting genre to some--but there are a few original works shoved in there nonetheless. Avoid anything that begins, "This is a work of fan fiction based on..." or "This is a WGA-registered spec script" and you'll be all right.

Only selling one right now: "Winterland" (http://www.scribd.com/doc/14288747/Winterland)

Okay, okay...

There is a general consensus to help me. Though I am stubborn and determined to succeed on my own... clearly, I have to confess and admit that I need support at this time. At the moment, I can say honestly Harlan is a goddamned saint and I'll beat anyone up that says otherwise.

But I do not want to give anyone the wrong impression about how I'm living. It's not street-level poverty, nor am I living it up in the Hills. So here's my life today. I did this iReport on CNN a few months back (and took a lot of abuse in the comments section) you're welcome to check out: http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-226203

I don't think a lot of those who commented understand what journalism is. Fuck 'em.

Thanks for sharing part of your story here with us.

Thanks for sharing. Is it impossible to find a job there? Any promising leads?

Excellent piece, Semi.

I'm curious: Why do you feel taking unemployment is a negative? It's not a hand out. I was out of a job for two months last year and took the checks. I know some people assign a stigma to it, but it's a way to make ends meet and get the pressure off until you get a confirmed gig.

I just yesterday had lunch with my best bud NeoCon Jim, who has been out of work for seven months. He's taking the checks, though politically he's firmly against social programs. He's taking the because he needs them.

It isn't a matter of pride, it's a matter of need.

BTW - Several of us did write-ups on DREAMS Nite at the Beverly on Friday. You can find them by paging back a couple of days on the Pav. Also, I posted twenty or so pictures of the event on my website, which is www.barbergallery.net. On the left side menu, toward the bottom, you'll see a link to the FoE Gallery (Friends of Ellison). Enjoy.
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Senor Barber,

Yep, I was at DREAMS. I was just wondering how the latest appearance went (seems a bit morbid to call it "his last appearance").

And I saw your site, too--one of the FoE pics has me just over Harlan's right shoulder.

Frank, there are worthwhile causes and then there are lost causes. Best learn the difference.

Love ya bubba,

Mark
Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristrocratic forms. No gov't in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, gov't tends more and mroe to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class
