Everyone is a Designer Except You

(slight apologies for breaking one of my rules, but it's been awhile and I'm making up for it) I have mentioned before my first "Adult Human Person Job", but not about the reason I quit. This isn't a self-serving "let me tell you about a rough day at work" rant. There's a lesson to be learned here, and one that took me many years to learn myself - ...

How I Got Started in Porn
Filed Under : General Stories Est. Reading Time : 6 mins

In case you don't know, and before you get all excited (or grossed-out), I don't mean that I'm in porn -- I've worked (and continue to work) in the porn industry. I'm a porn web designer. I've designed 1000s of websites in my life, and 100s of them have been porn. I've worked for niche fetish companies. I've worked for Vivid (where I got to design Vivid.com back in '05). I've been ...

My Afternoon in College
Filed Under : General Stories Est. Reading Time : 5 mins

I've always been amused with the phrase "giving it the ol' college try". I don't even really know what it means, or if a "college try" is an actual thing. I've always taken it to mean "try your best and don't worry too much", but I'm probably wrong. If it's specific to the person, as in "treat this as you did with your days in college", then anyone giving me that ...

Videogames As Sport
Filed Under : General Stories Est. Reading Time : 8 mins

I played a lot of videogames growing up, across many systems. My first system was the Commodore 64, onto which I actually programmed some of my own videogames. There were a few games on there that I thought I was really good at, based on playing friends of mine. But we had a paper boy who also had the same games on his Commodore 64 and he whooped my ass ...

My First Real Adult Human Person Job
Filed Under : General Stories Est. Reading Time : 6 mins

It's a funny thing when you reach adulthood and you find out how many lies you were told throughout your life. They're mostly innocuous "white lies". Things adults will say to keep you in line and out of trouble, and with hopes that you'll make something of your life. That's all adults who give a shit about your life ever want -- a good life for you, and not having ...

Tina : The Pimp of Alt Porn
Filed Under : General Stories Est. Reading Time : 6 mins

This is part of a series of posts about an internet-based live TV talk show I created/hosted called Aural Salvation. Reading about the origin of the show isn't required, but it might help give you some context. It would also help to know that I built up a large, enthusiastic audience by interviewing naked alt-porn girls, and a MySpace celebrity gone actual-celebrity. Since I already had a weekly drop-in to ...

Continuing in a series of posts about Aural Salvation (I'll be doing one more post tomorrow, then getting into other stories before I return to these), in October 2005 I had found out about an upcoming little alt-porn site called GodsGirls.com that was getting flack from the Suicide Girls website. I found this out because, in the MySpace days, you'd see hot chicks promoting all kinds of weird shit on ...

3 Days of Awkward Interviews
Filed Under : General Stories Est. Reading Time : 6 mins

In the first few weeks (maybe 2 months, actually) of Aural Salvation, I had to fulfill the interview obligations of my former co-host : Crazy J. Since I'd taken over his time slot and was, ostensibly, covering the same genre of music, bands who'd been expecting an interview with the station -- MusicPlusTV.com -- for whom I was hosting a show. I've known, and encountered, quite a few people in my life who ...

There are some stories that, if I broke them up into serial stories, would end up being 20+ parts long. That's just silly. So, I'm doing some stories as sub-sets of other stories. This is one such story. Some people who read this blog, and who have patiently (and sometimes inexplicably) followed my "career" for many years, may remember a little internet-based TV show I used to write/host called Aural ...

In my Sophomore year of high school, I was the first amongst my close group of friends to get a driver's license, and -- more importantly -- the first whose mom would actually lend out the car to them. Early on, I'd just pick up Nad and a few other friends, and we'd drive around throughout the early evening Phoenix streets with no particular place to go. Just ...
