Hey, everyone! Sorry about the "radio silence", I've had my hands pretty full lately.

To make a long story short, I've been working closely with @Cornelius Vango at the Slab City Library. Last month, they placed me in charge of the place.

It's been a LOT of work, but extremely rewarding so far. I've started my own YouTube channel, so folks can keep up with the progress here.

I know it's still quite a ways off, but I hope to see everyone who can make it at the 2018 Dirty Scout's Jamboree this year!

Here is one of my videos. Enjoy!

I love libraries. I did my work study in the archives at my university's library. Glad to know the Slab City folk have an appreciation too. I'm sure, when I finally wander down to the Slabs later this year, the Slab City Library will be the first spot I check out.

Side note:

If I, or anybody else for that matter, wanted to bring books to donate. Are there any specific titles or authors or whatever that you may be looking for? I was a sociology major, so I'm sure I have some Max Webber and Karl Marx type books just collecting dust that I wouldn't mind toting across the country with me. Would give me a chance to reread them as well. LOL

I'm not sure about specific titles or authors, but we're always seeking to expand the followong sections:

- Poetry
- Gender & Sexuality
- Sci-Fi / Fantasy
- Alternative (i.e. nonchristian) Religions

Thanks a bunch!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
