Pledge Hammer: Day 1


It's been a very long time since I've done one of these, mostly because a lot of my writing has gone directly over to the Daily Banter and not everything here has been entirely exclusive. But DXM is still my baby and we've seen a good amount of content here recently as I try to ramp things up again, so I guess it doesn't hurt to drop my hat onto the digital sidewalk and ask for a little spare change. Yes, it's time for a pledge drive.

You know how it works: If you like what you find here at DXM and, more recently, on The Bubble Genius Bob & Chez Show podcast and at the Daily Banter -- if you find my rapier wit, not-at-all-penetrating insight, pathetic attempts at comedy, public fights with critics, musical picks and general juvenile behavior entertaining -- then by all means feel free to throw some money toward keeping these proceedings humming along.

There are three ways you can put your hard-earned cash toward the DXM media empire and its humble proprietor. The first is the easiest: Just click the Paypal electronic tip link in the right-hand sidebar of this screen and donate away. You can also use the Paypal tip jar to pay-what-you-want for a digital copy of my book, Dead Star Twilight, for iPad or Kindle. Go here to begin your instant download. Remember, it's a full length book -- 300-some-odd pages that'll feel like 299-some-odd-pages -- and it can be yours for whatever you feel like putting toward it. The last way you can give is by buying a physical copy of Dead Star Twilight from Amazon. To purchase the paperback, just click here. (By the way, buying the book gives the least amount of money to the site since I only get a small cut; I want to sell books but I know there are some people out there who would want to be made aware of that.)

As always I want to thank everyone who continues to read, share, comment on and generally indulge in this little experiment of mine. We're coming up on our seven-year anniversary around here and, astonishingly, I have yet to be sued, arrested for, or killed over anything that's appeared here (although there were one or two threats of physical violence within the past week or so). I write my ass off on a near-daily basis, whether it's specifically for here or for here, Banter and the Huffington Post, and I sure as hell don't do it because it makes me rich -- I do it because I love it and because you guys still inexplicably keep wanting to read it. So, again, thank you from the bottom of the dank pit where my heart is supposed to be.

An update tomorrow.

Now back to your regularly scheduled nonsense.
