Quick Money

Post by InfernoFudd » Wed Feb 16, 2011 4:10 am

“Quit moving so much,” the lab technician yells.
Why must I live like this?
I do things like this because of the quick money, which I need because my art does not feed me yet. Even if it did, I’m not sure I could stop this addiction.
You start with minor experiments like weight loss or herbal drugs. Then you move on to major medical experiments with loads of paperwork to sign and weeks of lab imprisonment. Eventually you get in with the teleportation crowd.
This marks the first time I consented to losing a limb or sections of organ.

I need to be that passionate about my art. I've got a ways to go.

Yep. The words that I keep hearing are, "All In!"
The best life is one lived with passion and purpose.
Take that to the extreme of casting body parts into the pot, and you get The Drabblecast.
But Drabblecast isn't good just because it is strange. It is good because this strangeness is inspired by reality. In that sense, you're not fully living until you have experienced life from the Drabbleperspective.
Never judge anyone until you have biopsied their brain.

Reality is stranger than fiction. If anything, drabblecast tones it down.
