The Dark Side of the Dolla

Andrew J. Stillman | The Artist Mindset

If you follow me at all, you know I’ve done a couple of collaboration pieces with Jeff from Content Unrelated (namely The Stupid Question and Server Problems: Happy Hour and Impatience). He’s super funny, and we decided to switch some guest posts again! So here’s a nice little post from him, and if you think he’s funny check out the rest of his stuff!!

Money is alcohol you can’t drink.

What I mean is, like alcohol, money significantly magnifies one’s pre-existing attitudes and behaviors. Ever hear someone say, “I’m an angry drunk,” “I get crazy when I drink,” or, “I’m a fun, laid-back drunk”?

Chances are, those people are already either pissed off, batshit crazy, or mellow for most of the rest of their day-to-day lives.

If I had a bunch of money, I’d be so relaxed I’d end up in a coma.

Not these people. Allegedly.

I know I’ve been absent from all your lives for far too long. But I have an excuse.

I got a second job! I know! A brand new thing to hate! Yay, me!

In the meantime, I’ve been up to no good over at my new side-blog, “Goddammit, Jeff.” It’s like this one but, you know, worse.

And over on this side of things, my good buddy Andrew Stillman, The Artist Mindset creator and writer extraordinaire, is stopping by Content Unrelated to talk shit with you guys.

Literally.

I’ve linked to posts of his before, so if you haven’t clicked them yet, you’re really doing yourselves a disservice.

Hatemail.

M friend CB does some writing on his free time. It’s mostly a sports blog but he’s in the middle of a transition with his site, otherwise I’d link it up here. Instead, here’s a weird Anime picture of someone who got shoved in a tiger’s ass.

EDIT: CB’s site is up and running. His first post is about Plaxico Burress’ love of pussy. Read it or the terrorists win. And now, the weird Anime picture of someone who got shoved in a tiger’s ass.

weird animeCB’s writing is pretty much unfiltered and uncensored because he’s a man who says what he wants and gives absolutely zero fucks about who he offends.

As such, he receives a lot of hatemail.

When he told me this, I didn’t tell him to maybe tone it down a bit. I didn’t tell him he was alienating parts of his audience. I didn’t tell him to be more careful.

I told him I was jealous.

As it turns out, there are stupid questions after all.

As it turns out, searching for part-time, single-digits-per-hour work is just as difficult as finding something that resembles a career.

As difficult.

More annoying.

I’m trying to find a part-time job to fill in the less productive gaps of my life where I lay on the couch under a blanket of Cheetos crumbs and wonder where I went wrong. So I figure, hey, I can spare another 20-30 hours a week if it means upgrading from dinners seasoned with the salt of my tears to dinners flavored with actual seasonings.
