As my SubscribeStar page closes in on 200 posts, I wanted to take make an appeal to my loyal subscribers. You are my biggest supporters, as each month you send me a share of your hard-earned money in order to read my self-indulgent posts. Many of you have also purchased my first book, The One-Minute Mysteries of Inspector Gerard, a further show of your support, and have picked up my music on Bandcamp. I deeply and sincerely appreciate your support.
I’m not asking you to send me more money (although you are, of course, welcome to do so should the mood strike). Rather, I’m hoping to enlist your support in reaching out to potential new subscribers.
Recent events have convinced me more and more that the modern world is no place for a man like me, and I’ve grown increasingly frustrated with and disillusioned by the dehumanizing, exploitative nature of the modern workplace. Perhaps I’m being a bit melodramatic, but I’m returning to a point I thought I had escaped over the last year. The thousand little indignities, briefly delayed during The Age of The Virus, seem to have returned with a vengeance, and I am weary.
