After not hearing a word out of "Johnny Cash Asshole" for weeks/months etc... he came thru the drive-thru I work at (ugh) thinking I was gone for the day. But since I worked an hour late that day, he pulled the ol' "I will get you some money on Monday" routine, shades of Wimpy from Popeye.
Only not at all entertaining or funny.
I have been informed by my co-workers he stops by regularly AFTER my shift ends and get his Fast-Food Fix. It has been almost a year since this sorry-ass motherfucker has started this. In all honesty, it did take me about a month to really get into the painting, not having done any serious work on canvas in 10 years. BUT, I have had this painting 90% done since late APRIL. For the sake of compromise, let's say mid-May. He has paid me a total of $300 bucks out of the $500 agreed to. Obviously, I will not even touch the darn thing 'til he pays in full. But since I am finally finishing my long overdue Lightwave 3D Computer Animation Education and working on Fast-Food Funnies (a self-published 4-part comic book mini-series), as well as keeping a roof over my head and food on my table. I am happily over-worked on stuff that will bring me money, a career with meaning and chix chix chix!
Coming next week join me as I present in it's self-confessional glory, FACING THE DEMON!
YOU will watch as I, once and for all, conquer the mental block of 3 years and see if I can't get me a fuckin' life!
