(Life news will resume when I know more. In the meantime…)

The past couple of years have witnessed my steady transition toward the dark side, and I believe that journey was completed yesterday. After voluntarily forking over wads of cash to the pimpled girl behind the counter, I picked up my new macawsex disc:

And, since we’re talking about evil things, you might be disenchanted to hear that over the past few months, this journal (as well as its sister sites) have been entirely self-supported through advertising. (A cookie for anyone who finds one!)

Upholding principles and leading an upstanding life is only for those who are otherwise happy and contended in their lives. If you aren’t, all bets are off.

(Honestly, I have had life news. It’s just that I don’t have access to my notes as I’ve not been at home for the past couple of days; and I am in no mood to concoct solemn entries from scratch.)

This is a printer-friendly version of the journal entry “The dark side” from actuality.log. Visit http://emphaticallystatic.org/earlier/the-dark-side/ to read the original entry and follow any responses to it.

    Indeed.

    I am not going to defend my actions.

    Wait, this site is supported through advertising…even though there are no ads on the site? Are you doing something like Pay Per Post?

    Also…macawsex? Bird fornication? :P

    A phonetic bastardisation of Mac OS X.

    And no, I am doing something even more evil (I think). I have sold 3 (three) links, one each from three over-two-year-old posts. (It turns out this site is not very expensive to run.)

    Now here’s the evil bit: These links look like any other links on my journal, except, if someone were to chance upon them, rather than be taken to some legitimately pertinent site I meant to link to, they’ll instead be taken to some arbitrary site determined only by who’s paid me.

    Something of a whoring shill, if you will.
