My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Tantalizing Taco Tuesday

The skill of writing is to create a context in which other people can think.
Edwin Schlossberg

Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it's just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into it.
David Sedaris

Maybe that's just what happens; you start out wanting to change the world through language, and end up thinking it's enough to tell a few jokes.
David Nicholls, One Day, 2010

In other news, I finally got my ads! Now I really have to step up my A game--hence the alliteration in the title that is only SLIGHTLY off topic. I imagine all those Adsense zeros are like little comforting eyes watching me type. Staring....

It's kind of creepy really.

I did notice that suddenly I got approved the day after posting a clip of graphic cartoon violence and claiming that I'd be taking a little trip down to Google headquarters. Apparently their crawler bots are more intelligent than I thought.

Sorry to the twelve subscribers and 230 viewers who think I have sold out. I totally have. I'm one of those creepy fucking artists who likes to eat and have electricity and stuff. Think of it this way: you now can put on affectation glasses and go around saying "Chris Brecheen? You probably haven't heard of him. (And that will almost certainly be true!) But I was a fan before it was all about the money." It'll be great. If you wear a stripy top and have a Polaroid camera strapped to your belt, you will be made the king of the hipsters and taken to their secret lair that you've probably never heard of.
