I set up a subreddit for Digital Scofflaw to go with that Patreon flair thing. Don't know if anyone actually wants this, but setting it up is free, so... https://old.reddit.com/r/DigitalScofflaw/
Why am I not surprised Patreon is down while I'm trying to grab some info from my page...
I made a fancy marketing nerd page for my music thing, which is my replacement for Patreon. Check it out. https://digitalscofflaw.com/
I'm thinking about doing a pack of chord progression MIDIs. How about complex variations on the standard pop progression in different keys? 🎶
I don't know when I'll publish it, but people paying yearly will get the whole thing at once instead of spread out over months like I do on Patreon.
Patreon sent an email telling me about some changes to the way posts go to different tiers.
They sent several templates for a message explaining it to subscribers. I couldn't make sense of it.
So I'm going to do what I should have done back with the fee fiasco almost exactly one year ago and set up an alternative on a service with a much more clear sense of what they're doing. This is what I've done with Gumroad's membership feature: https://gumroad.com/l/DigitalScofflaw

This careens back into my recent infatuation with inversion!
Who am I? What do I want to do? What do I need to do? Can I resolve those questions in the same process, or do I have to prioritize?
I have...no idea. But what I can do is slowly pick apart the habits, like checking my phone every 5 minutes or waiting until midnight to get ready for bed.
Slowly, I make space for myself, and paths emerge.

It's easier to "just do it" if you've spent months or years culling counterproductive habits. I think the missing link is in what people do instead of what they should be doing.
The starting point that preceded my own breakthrough was that I didn't actually know what I wanted to do. I had spent so much of my life dodging other people's willpower and personality that I never had a chance to develop my own.
Patreon, capitalism venting Show more
Patreon doesn't know what Patreon is. You can see it with the Memberful purchase. They want to be a membership site thing.
There are already so many companies that do that, and better.
Memberful only had 500 paying customers when Patreon bought it. Everything it does, Gumroad and 20+ others do better.
Patreon was unique, then they raised a half billion dollars they had to justify. They could have built Memberful for less than what they likely paid. Clueless.
People think power lines are ugly, but we normally only see them in three dimensions. This is how they're supposed to look. https://www.redbubble.com/people/digitalscofflaw/works/34701384-triangles-after-the-storm?asc=u

Hello! A lot of you here at the Mastosphere know me as Riley. This was an identity I created to explore identity. In keeping with the monomyth, I have returned home changed.
So I'm back to this name, which is my legal name, just in time for a hurricane by the same name to wallop the gulf and soak Georgia.
I'm still making stuff with Digital Scofflaw: https://www.patreon.com/digitalscofflaw

This toot will be my legacy and I'm okay with that. I don't have a soundcloud, but I do have a Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/digitalscofflaw
I released Goodbye almost a year ago. I went from barely $5 a month on Patreon to almost $40/month. It may sound small, but that's a lot of breathing room where before I had no extra money. https://digitalscofflaw.bandcamp.com/album/goodbye
It’s not the people or places you miss, but the way they made you feel. You can’t—shouldn’t—take it all with you, but you can appreciate the way they changed you, how they altered your course.
