  1. What Are You Thinking?

    I wish had more energy. I don't mean right this second, I just mean in general. If I'm not straight up sick, I'm still zombie tired. Right now typing this I'm dead tired and I slept theoretically decent last night. Really sucks when you are trying to get anything done. It also makes my "just suck it up" system for dealing with feeling sick hard as hell, because when you are tired, the mental focus is for crap, and every problem seems magnified. I should have the energy to fix DGN and to put in at least 8 hours on HouseSpiral.com , which if I'm lucky I squeeze out 4 before I'm too out of it to focus. I "feel" like I'm busting my ass, but the actual output is mediocre in terms of volume. Really worried if any of this healthcare cuts bullshit goes through I'm going to be in bad trouble. I need to have a legit income to pay for the expensive ass hell care that I need.
  2. The Towel - Input Requested

    The real question other than just typos and such is like is the 'mission' clear and how it works clear. I'm trying to push the idea of gothy/alternative types helping the world be a better place, and also not to be "ashamed" of being unusual. Sure someone might only dress city-club style like every once in a blue moon but not to be "afraid" of admitting they like the gothy look/sound /whatever. It's so bad these days that like people that are TOTALLY into the "halloween" or horror movies or the "dark look" aka GOTH stuff as a summary. (real Halloween not freaking Disney Princesses... although I do like Disney princesses too lol).

    Sure I do, just as long as you keep making my dollars on the streets. =D
  4. Oldest Hotel In The World

    There is another one that for a long time the west thought was the oldest in the world (also in Japan) its "only" like 1100 years old. The crazy part is the >continious operation < part.
  5. The Gathering 84

    The white symbols at the bottom right say 'house spiral' (carefully translated as I could.) The triangle is a highly stylized triple spiral (Triskelion) an adopted symbol of house spiral since forever, sometimes associated with the spirit of a wolf pack, our group spirit animal. (This is heavily associated with the Celts, but the spirals original meanings if any, are pre-date history as we know it. Like so they many things. They mean what we choose them to mean. (Could spend a lifetime researching spirals) It also looks like a triple pointed star of the words of House Spiral (another house spiral adopted symbol) I mean the points to stand for starting from the bottom left, Earth (Truth), Water (Kindness), top point - Fire (Courage). All Ideas to live by. Courage being placed slightly above the others but only there honorably if supported by truth and kindness. Not always easy to put into practice. The crossed ceremonial daqtag knives symbolizing both honor and death challenges. (Life is a struggle suck it up.) The tribal house spiral triskelion also just looks cool and reminded me of Klingons. The skull translates as 'To Be or Not to Be' from Hamlet. Google that, it doesn't get much gothy black darker than what he's contemplating in that stanza. Thus the bewildered spiral crazy eyes seemed appropriate. Interestingly the language has no 'to be' so the spirit of the translation is something like Survive or Do not Survive. Hrmm. That's a pretty good covers all the basic overlapping philosophical ideas of what we are trying to do with HouseSpiral.com and Patreon.com/HouseSpiral <-- monthly house spiral cards incoming and membership cards.

    After a ton of research, gofundme and Kickstarter aren't good fits for what we are trying to do. Patreon is much better, it's similar but the way it works is better. The most obvious one is you can offer incentives for people to become a patron (note the bias toward patron instead of "donor" you are donating really, but the idea is that you are WORKING for the money and it's not just a handout. Have a look, I'd appreciate the feedback. Its "done" (and it works and is life) but I don't want to show it to the world so to speak until its a bit more polished: Troy's House Spiral Patreon Page https://www.patreon.com/housespiral
  9. Random Acts of Kindness 5.0 - Post, This Means You

    Mine is still updated regularly. Calms me down sometimes to window shop and figure out "what is it that I actually WANT (not counting good health and such like that) ... which isn't that many things once I really think about it." Well other than you know... MY GOD DAMN STORE TO BE DONE AND PROFITABLE SO I CAN GET ABOVE POVERTY lol or at least enough patreon subscribers so I can keep working (its ready to launch and works just needs some polish, Kickstarter, and gofundme aren't a good fit. Scared to death my computer is going to die before I get things going. It runs on hampster power and its been getting worse for a year, I've replaced everything that is cheap-ish and took the whole thing apart and put it back together twice. Its the motherboard, plus this POS pc is so shitty it doesn't even run the graphics editing stuff I need to update the website properly, have to use the shitty software. But, so far so good. *keeps fingers crossed*.
  10. What Are You Thinking?

    I need to keep working and get my insomnia under control, wastes so much time.
  11. What Are You Thinking?

    No around here anyway knows you as "will". So your safe! Just make sure someone that at least looks like he is a will is always around and he'll be the redshirt and not you.
  12. Oldest Hotel In The World

    For roughly 1,300 years, the descendants of Fujiwara Mahito – all 52 generations of them – have operated the inn, which was founded in 705AD – some 300 years before the Vikings came to America and 225 years before the founding of the kingdom of England. That was the 2nd year of the Keiun era, which led to the hotel’s “Keiunkan” name.

    And then there were 4. Damn my health.
  14. How Are You Feeling?

    Scared and not sure what to do.
  15. The Gathering 82

    Ive not been comming mostly due to being sicker than usual. But, im also concerned about the republicians never ending tries to cut medicare and medicade. Because I actually had a job, i just barely qualify for it now. I will not if the shitbags pass their cut funding for the vunerable and give it to the rich insanity. (They are not stopping we already told them no twice but they dont care, all the care about is keeping their rich doners happy) So, im burning the candle at both ends to try and come up with a real income stream. (House Spiral.com) + GoFundMe to get startup money. Which is partly making me sick. If this 'tax reform' (2 trillion for the rich , 1.5 trillion cut to the poor) I will likely die. My heath care needs are very expensive. I have to have health care and i wont qualify if this happens. So i have to have a replacement. Hopefully it will happen fast enough.
