Pay the Artist, Please

Wow I did a lot of publishing last week. Too bad I don't get paid per word--that would be killer.
In the mean time, I created a new spreadsheet (I know, ANOTHER ONE?) That helps me manage my social media publishing schedule in accordance with when each platform is the most active. So. That should...make things more efficient.

I guess I'm frustrated and if I didn't write about frustration as often as joy, I'd be lying. I'm frustrated because I genuinely work 40 hours a week on a slow week and at the end of the MONTH my takeaway is pocket change. I'm not mismanaging my time, I'm not wasting it messing what's the problem?

A Fixation Friday Moment of Silence

-For the Duffer Bros and their shaky integrity


 -For JK Rowling and the fact that she's been canceled


-For Kanye West and his missing mind


-For Ferris Bueller, who is home from school because of his very serious and not at all made up illness.


 -And for Michael Jackson. In memoriam. Always.

I started drafting this post a looooong time ago, but the list of people doing dumb shit in the spotlight has grown longer and longer since then. Instead of starting over I've just added to it.
Stranger Things 3 began filming recently, without camera crew member Peyton Brown, who accused the Duffers of "verbally abusing women" on set. The bros have since apologized in a stereotypical "we did it but it doesn't count" kind of way. Netflix apparently investigated and found no wrong-doing. That, of course, doesn't mean the bros are clean, just that the streaming service isn't willing to do anything about it in case it messes with one of their biggest money-making properties.
