Compressed Schedules and Ad Space Forever!

[ music | Liz Phair – Conversation Overheard Between Two Bouncers ]

I walked out my front door today, and saw these on the front of my apartment building:

My building is being sold in a Sheriff’s Sale on September 1st. No, I can’t sue the landlord because I’ve been on a month to month “lease” for ages. No, I can’t buy the building. And that’s my deadline (and dead is the key word here), September 1. So, I’m even further down the stream without any propulsion implements than I previously thought. So I again post my appeal, help me Reboot My Life! Please!

And in that vein, I’m even offering something for sale: Permanent ad placement on my site. For as long as your site or organization is around, you’ll be able to have an advertisement here on my site. Either a skyscraper like you see to the right, a button like to the left, or we can work out some other format and placement. The only caveats are that the ad may not be Java-based, really annoying Flash ads, advertising illegal content, blatantly false, or incredibly offensive. I determine if the ad falls under these terms, but I’m very flexible and we can work something out. What’s the cost for a lifetime of ad space? $5,000.00, which whill go to Rebooting my life. It will actually enable me to end that campaign entirely. The good karma you’ll be buying is priceless. 🙂

“These tits are way more indie than you”

[ music | Liz Phair – Conversation Overheard Between Two Bouncers ]

What a way to start a post. A smashing headache, and a horrible pun. “Pun?” you say. Yes, a pun! You see, I am obviously speaking of Indie Tits, the web comic, not Liz Phair’s breasts (which are also fantastic). I’m a huge fan of Questionable Content, which is having another guest-artist week, so this is kind of a bad week to jump in, so skip back a few weeks to take a look. Anyway, J. Jacques also does Indie Tits, and maybe it’s the splitting headache with which I am currently afflicted, but it’s hilarious. Here are a few of my favorites:

I am now going to take four aspirin and lie down. That is all.
