William Burroughs - Advice for Young People
"If you are doing business with a religious son-of-a-bitch, get it in writing. Because his word isn't worth shit, not with the Good Lord telling him how to fuck you on the deal."
Burroughs and I were paid at the same per-word rate for our contributions to "Three Fisted Tales of "Bob" / Short Stories in the SubGenius Mythos" (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1990). Make of that what you will!
old man gets emotional
I did a couple of things today that worked toward BlackFire's eventual runway.
We got a new client... a big law firm here... I will complete vuln assessments, and provide forensics for them. It will turn into a retainer at 6 months if everyone is happy.
They will be happy.
I felt happiness leaving that meeting that I haven't felt in a long time, and I wondered quietly if I really have been depressed all of my adult life, and didn't regard my emotional state as such... toxicity perhaps... I was flying high... blasting down the interstate.
I left that meeting and opened a bank account for BlackFire.
I left that meeting and I wept.
Excitement had overwhelmed me.
I am doing what I must do.
I have no other choice.
I cannot embrace my old way of doing business when feelings like that come about.
I was ALIVE again.
They will not own me.
No one will own me.
I will break these old chains and become more than I have ever been.
The IQ (Idiot Quotient) tests mainly for conformity to the CON's agenda. If this trend is reversing, I consider that a GOOD thing!
