I want twenty dollars. Please? As an award-winning respected academic scholar at the University of Florida, a performance artist listed on WikiPedia, the author of over fifty books of prose and poetry, over one-hundred independent videos, and over fifty original full-length albums of music (most available free of charge), a musical performer in bands (several of which are internationally recognized), a person who has entertained several million people across the country for over three decades, and a live performer with the longest running variety show in the history of Gainesville, Florida, I need twenty bucks. I know, I should have been an engineer or something, but I picked this. Your help really helps. And you bet I need it. I know many folks say, 'Get a job,' but this IS my job. Last week for example, I performed in two bands and ran the sound at The Bull for one of their biggest nights of the Summer (Chuck Martin's GeniusBoy TV Show), entertained for a benefit at the Acrosstown Theatre, showed several major paintings at the HighDive, ran my Monday night show, and recently completed full time Summer Rep at the University of Florida in which I played two roles and did sound design for Vera Stark, and also sound design for 20th Century in the Constans theatre. Despite a generous offer to allow me to "shit, shower and shave" in the restrooms of the University of Florida, I elected to try and keep my apartment. I was working so hard I didn't have time for a paying job. But I believe I provide value and with your help, I can get a degree that says I'm good for a paying job in a year or so. It's humiliating to have to ask for money, but I'm willing to be humiliated to help others feel better. I'm an 'A' student. I'm really trying to retain my flavor while getting chewed up. I'm basically Gainesville gum. Not scum...gum. So if you like gum, please help.
