Money Grab

Ok, here’s the base concept for a performance art project that I want to do.

One of the reasons that I haven’t accepted any money on the back of my celebrity and just wanted to get hired as a programmer is that I’ve been a shitty person at various points in time. There are plenty of people out there who I have hurt who are having to grit their teeth and bear it when they see me in the news because they happen to agree with what I’m doing and they don’t want to talk shit about someone “doing good work”. I respect that and I appreciate your silence up until now.

Very little dirt has come out about me in the past two years and oh boy is there dirt out there to be found. The thing is I’ll cop to all of it. I’m a repentant man. I did it. If you want me to publicly admit that I hurt you and tell you what I was going through at the time so you can understand why I did that horrible thing then I’m happy to explain. If you just want to see me cry and say I’m sorry I’ll do my best. Tears don’t come easily any more but I really am sorry.

You see, I really need the money right now. I need to raise funds to sue the state of California for a child custody case where they are legitimately endangering the life of my daughter. And it takes a LOT of money to sue the government and win. In parallel with that lawsuit I will also be advocating for legal reforms so that men are not discriminated against on the basis of their biological sex in the California family court system as I believe the judge in my case honestly WANTED to give me my daughter and had his hands tied by bad laws.

So I’m cashing in on my celebrity and the only way I know how to do that ethically is by doing it as a public confession ritual intermixed with a celebration of all of the good times I’ve ever had with you.

If you are a friend of mine who wants me to tell one of my “Blake stories” and you want to throw some money my way reach out to me and we’ll see what kind of medium makes the best fit. If you are a fan who has a specific request for an AI art commission then DM me and we’ll talk. I love doing AI art, it is keeping me alive right now. And finally, if you are someone I hurt and you would like me to in any way acknowledge it publicly then reach out to me by any means that you can and I will publicly admit to my sins in whatever manner you would prefer.
