139 - Treat the Source Not the Symptom



  • How I fixed my truck's tailgate latch
  • I got advice on covering up the problem, but I wanted to fix it 'right'
  • I have aspirations to be in the local theater guild for at least one production. I considered years ago with a focus on acting, but now I would love to design and build a set.
  • Thanks to MoviePass I've watched twenty movies in the theater so far this year.

138 - Why Do Rich People Drive Rich People Cars?



  • Watching HBO's latest series Succession, I ponder what determines the car people drive.
  • The How We Got Here trope, I don't like it. If your movie or episode's opening is so boring that you feel the need to include a later scene, fix it. Don't try to band-aid it.
  • NaNoWriMo 2018, ideas on a story.
  • Halloween 2018 could be Fortnite inspired.

137 - Don't Give It Away For Free



  • Doing graphic design at my job
  • A skill I learned on my own from which my job reaps benefits
  • I want to get paid when the only alternative is outsourcing
  • Friends and family discount is a joke. They should want to help you succeed. Why would they pay a stranger instead of you?
  • I don't charge for my time, only when my time is using an exclusive skill. I'll help you move furniture anytime at no charge
  • Doing something for a hobby versus for a job
  • Value your time and know the value
  •  Pass up work
