All Things Jessica

So a few days ago I think it was Matthew who said in a comment that he wanted to know a bit more of the past between me and Jessica. I went and recorded a podcast about that. Though that story doesn't really kick in until after the first 8 minutes. The first 8 minutes is a bunch of crap, and then my theory on how the show Scrubs is a coma fantasy that JD had. I'm not too sure when he entered the coma, but it made sense at the time of writing. Here's your podcast for now though. Hear me get emotional and almost cry.





There's another thing I want to briefly discuss. See I'm interested in making t-shirts and what not, and I think I actually have the creativity to come up with cool things to put on a shirt. The only problem is that I can't run a store in house. I don't have the room, and even if I did I don't have the skills or equipment to make things here. One solution (Thanks to the super cool Dan and Gloria) is Zazzle. Basically you design things, they sell them, they pay you royalties. If anyone has any other websites like that, let me know. I want to weigh my options. Also if there's anything I've ever said that you think should be on a shirt, let me know. Maybe even one of the pro-gay slogans from the podcast.

Also I have now realised one of my life's dreams. I haven't done it yet, but I've realised it's a dream. I want to be made in to a plush toy. I know most boys want to be action figures, but not me. Being a plushie would suit me better, and I want to be available in huggable format. I'd actually quite enjoy that anyone, anywhere, could hug me at any time. So if anyone can actually make a plush of me, you would have all my love, respect, and anything. I really do have no shame.

That's all for now folks, I hope you enjoyed the podcast, or at least listened to it. Also before you start calling me some capitalistic shitdog for wanting to move in to the merchandising area of things, I really would be happy with just $10-$15 a month, or just $5 even for my podbean hosting. I'm not trying to make a lot of money, I'm just trying to keep things going.

Okay I'm really going this time, this has counted as a post AND a podcast. At least the folks who can't listen have something to read.

Oh wait, one final thing. One design I was hoping to do for the t-shirt would be a sketch of my avatar, but the best I could come up with was this. If this is alright let me know, and if you can sketch my avatar, then also let me know. Again, you would have all my love and respect.

  1. These gay slogans are actually amazing, the Jesus one is great and the one you were sceptical about is great even though some people may be offended by them, they all made me laugh too.

    That's a crazy story about Jessica too, I had no idea that she was a transgender. I'm kind of glad that you guys have became friends again through Facebook although I feel bad that she changed her mind so much like, you really should be yourself and stick to it, it's kind of crazy she's changed so much. At least she's happy now though, great podcast man.

  2. I feel that picture for a t-shirt is far too "noisy". Tone down the detail a bit I guess. Then again, I'm no artist, and my default theme for Windows 7 is the bland Win 98 one. Go me.

  3. Zazzle is a pretty decent choice. I've heard of people in your situation using it as well, and not regretting it.
    Also, a Mark plushie, I'd so buy one of those.

  4. When you make the bumper stickers, t-shirts, and other products, remember to put your website address on them. They could help make you epicly famous. All the slogans you came up with were unbelievably funny. I listened to the whole podcast while eating my left over Arby's roast beef sandwich. By the time it was over I dozed off. (Not because of the podcast, but that's what Arby's left overs do to me.) I was hoping I would write a better comment when I woke up, but I fear this comment is still kinda mediocre, so sorry about that. The story of you and Jessica was very intriguing. If your theory about Scrubs turns out to be wrong, you should use that idea for a story of your own.

  5. Very good intro! You're getting awesome speaking and being casual!

    Coolest quote ever!: Staring at my ass doesn't make you gay it makes you awesome!

    Good luck with the merchinizing!

    He dies, spoiler allert ---- Thanks for the heads up on that Mark!

    The reason I think Scrubs plays out like he's in a coma is the same reason I think it could be argued with Pokemon, Rugrats, and others! Cause when a writer writes he/she makes the characters in a world based on there mind. Most writers write characters that have relationships like they do. The way the characters feel about there parents is the way the writer feals about his, the way a character interacts with a boyfriend or ex is the way a writer would, basically they make a world for a character that is how they interact with the world. Its like any show is actually the mind of the person who created/wrote it!

    Wait you and Jessica pretended to be Jay and Silent Bob, and YOU where the silent one?! what?! no fuckin' way!

    I enjoyed hearing about the origin of you and Jessica.

    And yes, this was one of your best podcasts!

  10. I guess DeviantArt it a good place, but they don't specialize in selling shirts and stuff. They pay you not enough too. So I guess don't go there.

  12. I don't have enough creativity for merchandising but kudos to you for trying! Best of luck!

  13. The avatar looks pretty good, actually. I have no experience in merchandising, but another blogger I know uses zazzle as well. So they might be pretty good.

    Maybe you could also sell mugs, mousepads, etc

  15. Your podcast won't play for me. About a week ago, I clicked on a reddit post which led to my computer getting a virus. A very stupid virus that would redirect me from a Google search. In order to get rid of it, I downloaded Malwarebytes. When I try to play your podcast, it notifies me of blocking a potentially harmful something or other. I have four days left of this before I am forced to pay if I want to keep Malwarebytes. Bastards!
