Hello fellow Newgrounders. Off and on in the last few years I've visited the forums and have checked out a few different threads in the art forum. One specific grouping is the "Request" or the "Artist needed" type thread.

Earlier today, I was looking around online and found 2 different articles on boredpanda.com that showcased a collection of artists that were essentially badmouthed for wanting to be paid for their talents.

While these are somewhat entertaining to read, it gets annoying to see so many people not want to pay or "Be unable to pay" or "Paying with exposure" for a legitimate amount of work and then get mad that no one helped you on your project. 

While I don't sell art or make enough of it in high enough quality, this entire topic hit close to home for me last year as a person skilled in a trade.

By unofficial terms, I am an IT worker. I'm not truly trained with IT but it's the job I do and I'm pretty good at it. I have been looking to do some freelance work as a person to set up social media accounts for small businesses and do basic maintenance of photos and general updates.

I had gone to a local business where I had seen their poorly functioning website and facebook page and asked if they were hiring a temporary job to do simple commission work. They seemed interested and after I stated a simple rate of approximately 8.00 an hour ( A fair rate) I was looked at with scorn and confusion.

"We're not paying you to play on a computer." Was the response I was given. "We thought you would do it for free."

To make a long story short here and get to the point:

You don't ask a construction crew to build you a house for free

You don't get a mechanic to fix your car for free

Remember: The people you're asking to take time and do work need to eat too.

Yeah, Another year come and gone. Here's to hoping 2017 isn't so crappy.

Well, it's that time again, fist fighting to get the last PS4 or whatever's on the shelf, The time to swallow what little pride you have before your family belittles you on your shortcomings and hear the complaints of bratty kids that "This isn't what I wanted"

 

Ah hell with that, I don't have kids and all the people that belittle me aren't invited this year! With that being said, find your favorite christmas soundtrack https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=192Do_7B308&list=PLmEX5866HLwHLvetpeYi2BBGwtpD8A-ft

Drink some eggnog ( I sure as hell won't) and watch something good. ( Might I suggest Night of the comet or Long kiss goodnight? Two of my favorites.)

What's up everyone. Tomorrow, I have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed.

 

I'm gonna look like a chipmunk. Keep checking for horrible pics and maybe even video.

 

Nah. This is going to suck. 

 

Update: Surgery was interesting. I woke up in the middle of the drilling. I was Semi-conscious for about the last 20 minutes of it all. I've been up and down all night.

Woo. It's been since December that I put anything here. I'd better put something down... 

So what's new? 


Posted by Mrccbirdguy - December 12th, 2015


What's up, my few Amigos and passerbys that are looking on here

So, the last two years were by far the WORST DAMN WINTERS I'VE EVER LIVED THROUGH.

So far this year, my region (NE OHIO) Has only had about 3 inches of snow.

So what about you guys? Are you getting a white Christmas? Do you want it? From the last year full of dead cars, icy roads and all that crap I'm more than happy with this Year's El Nino.

As of 1/11/2016

 

Well, Shit. I spoke too soon.

Definately spoke too soon. Twice in one damn week I called off because I couldn't see the road.

 

Why is the NWS naming Winter storms now? All it's going to do is make them more confident.

Well, Shoot. August is just about over and already the leaves are changing and the stores are stocking Halloween crap. Maybe this winter won't be as much of a pain in the ass as last year...


Posted by Mrccbirdguy - April 18th, 2015


So, after a bear of a winter, we now have nice warm temperatures! So, how'd you all do?

 

Scratch that, Got cold again.

Whelp, I can't go anywhere, work called everyone off. What should I do today?
