Sticky toot

Update— someone just donated $145, bringing me up to the $175 total!!!!

I have turned off donations, as I have met my goal.

Thank you so much everyone who shared this.

If it all works according to plan I should be able to reimburse my donors once the settlement goes through, everyone knock on wood / cross your fingers / chant magickal spells or prayers for me!!!

For the record, if you favourite my toot I am probably going to follow you.

If you boost my toot I am almost definitely going to follow you.

If you follow me, I am going to get in my time machine and travel back to five minutes ago so I can follow you first.

I'm an old weirdo acid casualty who has recently been awakened to class struggle ("The working class and the employing class have nothing in common"). Horizontal power structures are HOT. I practice Buddhism and toomfoolery. I do poetry and make songs. I have a girlfriend and she has a cat and I don't know how I'd live without either of them. I've been getting really into cooking lately. I like whiskey and weed and my boss thinks I'm working right now.

Shit, I typed "toomfoolery." This shall forever be my contribution to posterity.

fundraising, legal fees (boost with CW) 

Long story short, my law firm negotiated my settlement up to $6,000 (far higher than it ever needed to be) and withheld their invoice and the amount of attorneys fees until after I signed the settlement.

That's when they told me attorneys fees will be $5,000, so I will only get $1,000.

But the whole $6k counts as income— and I'm going to get a tax bill of $2,080 and change, and I cannot afford the $1,080 leftover tax bill I'm going to get.

I *KNOW* I can win if I take them to arbitration, I just need $175 to take them to arbitration. And I need it in the next week or two. And I don't have it.

Please help me out, even if it's just $4 or $5!!

OK, I'm asking for money (the first time ever). Please boost!

I need to come up with $175 to arbitrate with a law firm. If I can't come up with the $175 I am going to lose over $1,000— which will financially devastate me.

Please help, even if you can only give $3 or $4!

I need to come up with $175 for a legal dispute, and think I might have to crowdfund it.

I have never done this before!

I want to use GoFundMe or something, rather than sharing my PayPal or Venmo account, because I don’t want people to keep giving me money after I have what I need— I want it to shut off after I’ve covered the $175 for the fee.

Anyone have experience with this? Is GoFundMe a good option? Or is there a better platform to use?

Asking for money 

Most righteous trash score of a pick axe that was just hanging out on the sidewalk outside of the bodega. The dudes playing dice said it was cool to take so legit? I guess.
Sick.

Vox is on strike today- they're trying to unionize! ✊

As a result, consuming media today from Vox, The Verge, or Polygon constitutes breaking a picket line.
