Books, Comedy, Products

 
Had another set back today but oh well. I am finally republishing my books and my partying book will be selling either this month or next.

I am doing drag comedy at Good Times Comedy Club September 14th, just because I can. No I am not returning to professional comedy, it's just something to do.

I was at a party the other week and people were still wanting me to do comedy. Um I am not a people pleaser. I did try do do a set and the fucking text to speech wouldn't work, no idea why. So people were reading my set on my computer and laughing.

I am thinking of doing disability related videos to promote my books. Problem is I don't like personal brands. I need to find a balance of not getting too high profile but if still promoting my books.

I am too busy to work on animated videos however I expect to work on all sorts of videos after my partying book is published. I may do some second editions but I want to do some fiction first.

Random rant: So many people fake positivity. I wish people can be honest about how miserable they are. I know people fake happiness for therapeutic reasons but I think it's OK to say life is fucked up, because it is. I don't think positivity is productive. I think that people that force themselves to be positive are less likely to make their life better. Although sometimes you can't. I just find it all so fake. Negativity doesn't have to be a bad thing; You can turn it into humour and make people laugh. At least I can, if you get my humour, and if you don't, sucks to be you I guess.

I like making myself laugh and if I make other people laugh, that's a bonus. On the other hand books, shirts and videos will be mainly for other people. They're also assets I'm building. All of my websites are assets too, it'd help if they were cash flowing assets Problem with shirts is I'm a shitty marketer and a crap designer, oh well. I am hoping that my designs will get better and eventually I'll have enough decent ones for a bit of income.

Business, achievements, trance

 
My internet business is kind of fucked, much more than usual. This isn't covid related, or sales related. I am an extremely crappy salesman. I am reducing software development time to focus more on T shirts and books. Basically software development wasn't working out and something happened to make it totally fucked at this point but I will definitely get back to it eventually. I just feel doing content websites and releasing shirts/books are easier to get up. I am still doing lots of programming in my spare time.

I suddenly feel like writing erotca under a pen name. Obviously I'm going to release the existing books I have written first. I probably would want to write the first book this year.

Little progress on the videos I mentioned last month. It's a problem of getting around to editing images. Hopefully I can get around to it soon.

I feel like I am not successful, but in a few months I'll have two actively selling books and a library of T shirt designs. So that's an achievement.

I'm getting a new communication device with my own software on it. To be honest the project has been fucking frustrating and if I didn't need the software myself because the other software was so shitty I would have given up. The problem is also spending so much time on a project that if you gave up you just wasted years of your life.

People say I do too much blah blah blah. Firstly my strategy is if one project succeeds I'll pour capital in the other projects and keep growing. Secondly how many people have performed comedy overseas, authored books, had a massive software business (over a decade ago), created their own accessibility software, have additional websites in industries they love, have amused thousands of people, hell my ideas have amused hundreds of thousands of people (through someone stealing my ideas), my set was retweeted by Dawn French too, I have interviewed loads of people including a politician, OK now I'm narcissisticly listing (some of) my achievements. What is my point? I am brilliant! I don't always broadcast my successes, even though I am doing that now, I am still leaving some jucy stuff out. I have written software that allows me to do stand up, chair meetings and speak at universities even though I didn't finish high school. I could be more famous, I just choose not to do that. Even though I haven't had as much success as I like, most people haven't done what I have done. Things will turn around.

I went to a trance gig, finally. Only been listening to trance for eight years. It wasn't in Europe but much cheaper. I am not really into any sort of pride but I am glad that I live in New Zealand at this time.

Books, videos, tangents

 
Fuck, it's July.

I really should get my two books published, I need to finish my second book. I also can make videos now. Typical Thane with Shiny Object Syndrome. I need to published my books, then go hard on videos. Doing just one video first though.

I am going to stop commenting on others' Facebook. People don't understand the things I say and try to debate points I didn't even make. I swear this is happening the majority of the time I comment, it's been like this for months I am probably a terribly communicator. I am also not very tactful or respectful. Well I have shit to do. I just want to get my thoughts out ASAP and move on with my day. Time to stop commenting.

One thing I like about animating videos is I don't have to deal with people, or fucking funding applications. I can't be bothered with either of them. Previously filled out two or three applications, I know this is not a lot. Again, I have shit to do. I don't want to waste time filling in applications when I could be building something. On the other hand, filled in an application, got a few trips to Brisbane. I also don't even like going out of the house, or fucking traffic. Traveling in a van is not productive. Now if I could teleport somewhere, do a set, teleport back right after, that could work. Otherwise going out is just largely unproductive. Releasing productions from the comfort of my bedroom suits me fine I can create brands, I don't want my name attached to most things that I do. I don't like how everything is people oriented. I don't care who's staring in a movie, I just want to know whether it's good. Ignoring the fact that I haven't seen a movie in five years. Again, I have shit to do. I don't like the media, the media usually covers me wrong, so it can fuck off. Getting recognition is completely overrated, I don't understand society's obsession with getting credit, fame, fans. I just want to write productions and put them on screen.. It'll probably still take a fuck lot of time, but most of the time will be spent doing things. I'll also release more comedy this way. I even forgotten that I wrote some scripts. I can't wait to get this pumping!

Clarification, basically the only things I like doing are going to bigger cities or seeing an international musician. Perhaps partying on other occasions. This is mostly fucked due to Covid.

This is unexpectedly full of tangent rants, so let's do another one and hate on the internet in general. Every few months a person gets slammed for saying a stupid thing, or doing stupid/offensive things 10 years ago. The people probably deserve it most of the time. The reason why I refuse to attach my name to businesses is that I know I am an offensive jackass. I am more comfortable controlling entities rather than randomly dealing with boycotts because I offended some group of people. Again I don't need recognition, I am happy doing things from behind the scenes. On the one hand this is not brave but I feel it's the most sensible way. Also many famous people are miserable, and I fully understand why. Many artists are depressed, does them being famous actually help them? Many end up in an early grave. This is a tangent on a tangent. Yes, I am not putting my eggs in one basket then being at the mercy on people on Twitter. Entities and brands are the way to go. At the same time I don't want to invalidate the boycotts. Some people on Twitter are absolute morons just looking to be offended and/or take you out of context. However most of the calling out people on issues have been decent. I am sure you can find some over the top reactions though.

Books, Coronavirus, Puppy

 
At the beginning of the year I started a partying book. The plan was to go to Sydney and Europe to finish it, obviously that's not going to happen. I am thinking of finishing it in July. I also need to get my other book back up.

Nothing much is happening, people are still posting crap on Facebook. I have decided that people wanting the virus should create their own city and get it, party, do whatever, have a blast. Just don't come back without antibodies. I don't mind if people are anti lock down, but can you stop with the incredibly stupid arguments that do nothing but broadcast to the world that you can't understand extremely basic stuff? If you just don't care whether masses of people get the virus, well that position doesn't display that you're absolutely ignorant of how to process the numbers. I disagree with it but you're less fucking stupid than some people. If you don't like me calling people stupid, I don't care, I should have been calling people stupid all along. I am done with people. Perhaps emotions come into it. Emotions hinder logic. Anyway I'm sick of hearing from these people, they're free to fuck off to an island and get coronavirus. Then they'll probably complain about something else.

A puppy now lives with me part-time. She's at least friendler than the other dog my sister brings over. I don't have to clean up her messes or pay for her, that's suits me. I have the urge to start a disability personal finance blog and I could include tips like if you're disabled (or if you're offended by labels, crippled) and don't want to pay for a pet just get an assistant with a pet, problem solved. I'd also love to do a satirical blog. I already have too many blogs and websites.

Ranting about people and Coronavirus

 
This fucking pandemic would be more tolerable if people weren't posting the same stupid shit on Facebook. Obesity, car crashes are not infectious diseases. You can't get obesity by going to McDonalds one time and it knocking you off within three weeks, how do people think this is remotely similar? People have a fantasy of separating people who are OK with the virus with the people who don't want it. This is idiotic. Even if you could separate them (you probably can't) they'll be doomed inside for about six months. However if the rest get the virus at the same time that'll fuck the medical system and people couldn't get cancer treatment. More importantly they don't know the long term health effects of it and at least some can get it again. Sorry but this pandemic seems to have disconnected people's brains. Apparently the lock down is working, I hope that the virus is eliminated, which will buy us some time for treatment to be available. It'll probably resurface when our borders open up. By the way to people who say reopen the economy what do you think a up to 5% reduction of country's population will do to the economy? What about the aged care sector? Well there will be less need for rest homes if 20% of their clientele died. Mass death is probably not a good economic stimulant.

I have been more social on Zoom than most times in the past decade, well at least half decade. I don't like going out so it's more convenient to join a zoom meeting.

I am producing a comedy and female vocal trance radio show this month, not sure when it'll air but I guess contact me if you want to know.

ALSO STOP CLOGGING MY FACEBOOK INBOX UP WITH VIDEOS, PICTURES, WHATEVER. I AM BUSY AND DON'T LIKE INTERRUPTIONS.

Coronavirus, TTS

 
New Zealand is on lock down because of the fucking coronavirus. I thought that the virus was no big deal at first, obviously I was wrong. I regret not getting sex while I could, I could have gotten some in Sydney but my passport expired. Yes I am ranting about sex. I'm a workahollic nerd; saying at home really doesn't affect me that much as I really don't like going out anyway. Some concerts cancelled, I can't go overseas, no big deal.

Actually the most annoying thing about this fucking virus is Emails from organization asking how I am. Bitch, I am busy and don't have time for your Email. I have also gotten countless Emails from random companies about the virus. If you're not shutting down my service GO AWAY! I don't care what you're doing with your company! Fuck!

While I'm ranting I have no time for idiots. Idiots can fuck off, they're endangering people's lives with their stupid bullshit. Dumb fuckers still don't believe that this virus is that bad. You have to be a special kind of narcissistic fuckwitt to think that you know better than public health experts at this stage. Many people are just fucking stupid! Er I had two hours sleep last night so I am probably extra bitchy. Can you tell? Perhaps you can't.

I did suddenly wanted to do comedy but my gig was cancelled. Going out was probably a really bad idea, though I probably wouldn't have got it anyway. I probably sound like a dumb person on the news. That's OK, at least I know when I am hypocritical and stupid. But seriously there was only about 20 infections in New Zealand at the time, the chances of getting an infection was really really low. I still want to do drag comedy at some stage, just because it'll be fun.

Today I started going through some electronic dance music tutorials. I have been meaning to learn for years. I still have no desire to be famous, I just want to learn how to make electronic dance music, specifically trance. I'd happily DJ in a gay club with hot shirtless guys, that would be pretty cool. Perhaps I'd release music through a stage name or produce music for other artists. I wouldn't mind doing that.

What sucks is I was mainly building event listing software and now all events have been cancelled. There's no point releasing it until this fucking virus is gone.

On the bright side it's a good time to invest in event companies, airlines, or most companies really since stocks have collapsed.

I have almost finished remote text to speech software. This will allow me to transfer live text to speech files through the web so it'll be like I'm speaking to the person. I pretty much only need to test.

Electric Avenue, Partying Book, Websites

 
I went to Electric Avenue festival, I got more material for my partying book. I was reminded how annoying people are. More people = more annoying people. Though I don't mind dancing with and fist bumps with cute guys. But honestly every five minutes someone would approach me, annoying. I probably have less tolerance since I'm aging, though I didn't have much to begin with. I got in the first row at the Pendulum set

My partying book is at 8,300 words. I accepted a commission based job running a network of 10 websites so I had to stop work on the book while I prepare for that. I'm basically programming automation so maintaining the websites won't take much time at all. I still plan on doing all my other projects and websites. Recently I added a website to my personal portfolio, it's another music oriented website. The network of websites I'm managing is in a niche I'm already in (not music) so hopefully with 10 additional websites I can experiment more to find out what gets the best results.

You probably don't care but it's my blog so fuck off if you don't like it.

Hopefully I'll get to back to writing my new book soon.

Overseas trips, DJing, books, Will and Grace

 
I delayed this blog because I was going to Sydney and wanted to write about that. I didn't end up going because I had an expired passport. Insurance won't pay out, no surprise. They look for excuses not to pay.

I'm going to Europe in June. I have ordered a new passport so hopefully things go to plan. I was advise not to use Airpoints, which really doesn't make sense to me so I am thinking Vegas/LA next year. Trying to think of a business reason to go back to China too. Preferably after a vaccine is created.

I love creating software and I have created software to DJ, tested it out Saturday, it was barely functional, doing request didn't work, my fault for not testing requests while music was playing. I'll fix that next time. No, I'm not considering a career change, I don't like basing a career on a personal brand, because I say all kinds of crazy shit. I just like creating software. I really want to create a music mixing application and plan to start it soon. If I ever release music it'd be under a stage name, I'd rather produce for a DJ and occasionally join them on trips in the crowd, or manage a gay club. I probably don't have time to go into music professionally. However I am available to DJ for friends' parties and if a gay club offered. Yeah I'd consider doing it, if the guys there were hot LOL! I did general music on Saturday.

My next book is 80% complete. I'm inspired to write other books such as about my short time in comedy and about traveling. Perhaps I'll do one book a year. Self published, probably less professional and with more casual writing. I think this works best for me. I think that I could write a book about sex and also some erotic fiction; I'm completely serious. Though I don't read erotic fiction or any kind of novels so I need to study it. I'd release the sex books under a pen name.

Also Will and Grace is a bit shit this season because Karen has been absent for two episodes; she's the best character in the show in my opinion.

Goals, Christmas, New Year

 
Did I achieve last year's goals. No. However one of my goals was to launch a concert site and while I didn't do that by I hope to have three sites loosely connected to music soon, and possibly more after so I am claiming victory.

I am still not where I want to be but some of my websites are getting big. As long as I continue to grow my portfolio of sites hopefully things will work out.

I never noticed how weird Christmas is. It's November, let's put up green shit all over the place. What's with Christmas trees? Did Jesus have one? Is cutting down all those trees even environmentally friendly? Christmas is not environmentally friendly, there's a fuck load of waste and rubbish. Giving cash reduces rubbish, just saying!

Why are people saying happy new year? It's happy new fucking decade! Stop underselling the event. Celebrating time also seems like nonsense but I don't care as long as I can get shit faced!

Carly Rae Jenpsen, Festivals, Music websites

 
I went to a small town for a multi day event. I hate small towns with a passion. The accessibility is usually shit, I also don't like smaller populations. I can't stand small towns. The event was OK.

Fucking didn't get on my flight to Christchurch because it was windy in Wellington. Fuck that, they should have been more prepared. It's not like it's a rare occurrence. Windy in Wellington, happens all the time. It's rare if it's not windy. No reason why I couldn't have gotten on the flight. Fucking health and safety crap. I had to go to Auckland from Wellington then Auckland to Christchurch. Delayed by four hours. What a bastard.

I am not a fan of small towns, or Wellington, or Wellington airport. Worse airport in New Zealand!

I go to Wellington too much. It's too small of a city for me to want to go there often. I think it has beautiful buildings but I'm over constantly going there.

I was sick of going to Auckland at one stage too. When I do too much of something or see someone too often I just get sick of them. It's been like that all of my life.

I went to Carly Rae Jenpsen in Auckland, she was better than expected. Upstairs but manage to get decent enough photos by going around the side.

I am going to finally use my Airpoints to go to Amsterdam next year. I am going to some trance festivals including going to one in Sydney. I just thought why not? I have never been to a trance specific festival and it's my favourite type of genre. I like vocal trance most of all.

I am finally starting to launch music sites. Turns out my own software is buggy and I forgot to program some key features. So I am doing a lot of fixing. I haven't released it commercially yet. That's something I need to do. I plan to launch international event sites, but will get local sites up first.
