Apparently I now have over 1000 watchers on DA. So I guess some of you folks like my random outbursts of idle creativity.
But who watches the watchers? We'll I do. We're all watchers of someone. But we are also creators. Even if you don't have a habit of uploading your own creations to the glorious pile of junk that is the Internet, just showing someone your appreciation means you're contributing.
So thank you all. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your works with the rest of us!

I don't have anything against Patron subscriptions as an existing format. For some creators who regularly produce quality content, it can work just fine.
I might even consider subscribing to one or two of them.

But now-a-days everyone and their grandmother has a Patreon. And the grandmother has a Patreon for her cat.
I'm not going to shell out X amount of dollars a month to 20 different creators at the same time, just to get the odd drawing every now and then and a bunch of sketches maybe. I'm sorry but there are just too many of you guys...
I'm not made of money. I regularly have to pay most of my hard earned cash on bills, loans, insurance, and the services I use daily, and indeed charities. So I am VERY reluctant to sign up for any MORE regular fees whatsoever. It might look like just a dollar or two, but they pile up and over a year of paying EVERY month on a wide variety of subscriptions, it becomes a lot of money. So I have to pick the things I can support.
When I have money to spare, I have money to share. And that is not every single month of the year. Sadly.

Many Patreons are also way too vague. I won't pay money in advance if I don't know what I'm going to get. I don't pay money to be surprised.
And don't get me started on loot crates. That's the biggest scam ever. It boggles my mind how people willingly throw money away on endless piles of junk, just for the occasional odd cool trinket. Just go buy the damn trinket! Even people who defend them just hoard most of the stuff in boxes they are never going to open twice, or end up giving everything away. Let's face it, it's a lottery. Nothing else. And I don't waste money on lottery tickets.

Now there are plenty of artists and creators that make good stuff. And I'd like to support them when they make something I'm interested in. But most lone artists don't produce solid gold at a steady pace every single month. Even major companies struggle to do that.
If I pay a monthly fee and get something I like every third month or so. Then I'm not going to sign up for another. And another...

I'm not asking everyone to give up on Patreon. But you should realize it's not a format that works for everyone and you are missing out on a lot of fans who never get a chance to see your best work.
Consider setting up an alternative for buying single pieces or products as well. If you make 5 things and I want 2 of them, then I'll gladly pay for the 2. But you're not all getting a subscription out of me for those 3 items I don't want.
There are options you can use beside Patreon, to sell single items. like Oronjo. As a complement if nothing else.

On a similar note, many artists also create packs of 10 or 20 images to sell. Every time I see such a pack there is often a few images I'm interested in. And a lot fo stuff I don't care for at all. Every time I see a pack on sale with 2 really interesting pictures and 8 others I don't care about. I end up not buying. Simply because there are 12 other packs out there just like it that I'm also not buying.
I'd rather pay for single smaller packages of quality stuff. Then pay for lots of stuff I don't really care for, just to get at that one thing.

So what I want to say is. Don't just go for quantity and subscriptions, you'll just drown in a sea of content when everyone is doing the same thing. Instead give your fans more options to give you their money on their own terms.

Hello all you BDSM people out there. Yes, you too over there in the corner.
The Benignly Deviant Sexy Majority.
Thats who you are. Everyone of you is a little bit different. And kinda weird. In your own wonderfull way. You are creative, kinky animals. The lot of you. If you are honest to yourself.
And you owe that to yourself. Be honest. Dare to think and feel. And dont be afraid. Being a little kinky doesn't make you strange. It just means youre human.

So lets celebrate our differences and learn something new from one another. Dont judge and point fingers. Because the first one you need to have a good look at is yourself. Yeah. That weirdo in the mirror. What a fool. But not such a bad person after all.

Lets make this the year where we can all be a little bit different. Together.

Happy new year!!

And thanx also for all the well wishes on my birthday, once again.

As a fan of Bondage and DiD, I always have to stress the importance of the BDSM mantra: safe, sane and consensual. Something that should be obvious to any rational and sane person. But which is sadly not always understood. And to remind people of the difference between fantasy and reality.
Because the world is full of narrow-minded people, who do not want to understand. Who instead hold onto their narrow minded ignorance and fear of anything or anyone they see as different. Often afraid to even try and understand themselves and their own nature. We are all humans and fundamentally not all that different from each other. But we often like to think we are. That you are somehow better and smarter then everyone else. But why would you be?

The world is slowly moving towards increasing intolerance, extremism and bigotry. Which is truly troubling. The human race is striving backwards, actively undoing years of enlightenment, progress, increasing equality and respect.
We are stronger together then we are alone. Yet politicians become more and more detached from the world and isolating themselves, spreading hate instead of cooperation. While the people continue to allow it to happen. The internet generation, who have reaped the benefits of it's information and sharing on a scale unprecedented in human history. Have also become lazy and indifferent. Somehow thinking that burying our heads in cute cat videos will somehow make all the problems in the world go away.
How can the age of information breed such increasing ignorance and irrational behavior? Science is taken for granted while superstition increases. Somehow the more we know the less we want to understand.

Do not trust in blind faith. Open your eyes and learn from each other!
Do not trust in empty promises and short-sighted greed from raving lunatics. Look for facts and use reason to see the real world!
Ignorance is not bliss. In the words of a truly wise man:
"
knowledge is preferable to ignorance. Better by far to embrace the hard truth than a reassuring fable."

I can only hope that the path ahead does not lead us into darkness and another collapse of civilization. It's happened before. Again and again throughout history. Senseless wars, corrupt systems and crashing economies. Don't think it can not happen again or that it can not happen to you. Because we never seem to learn and not repeat past mistakes. We only become wise, after the fact.

How about stream of bondage!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking of. Why? Because yes.

Well March Madness is here, so I guess it's faking season. At least over at the UBF. And I haven't done much faking this past year. Where is the time?

www.the-ubf.com

So while I sit down for a spell and work some fakir magic (or die trying! ), I thought I might as well stream while I work.
If you have any interest in beautiful women (especially Lauren Cohan), magic, faking, bondage, or not. Then feel free to stop by my channel (what, I have one of those?) and say hi.

That's all for this stream, it was fun, so I might do another sometime. If you want to see more live faking sessions, let me know.

------------
On again now. trucking on.

------------
Test successful, fake underway. Now, part 2 is on. Stop by and say hi :)


------------
Part 1.
Testing out a streaming site. To see if we can get a live bondage faking session to actually work. Thought it might be fun to share.

Just messing around, so have no expectations, apart from an anticipation of turtles.
The result might be a fake of some kind. Or a half-assed impression of a mess. Who can say. Should be fun!

Feel free to drop by and say hi. You can sit and glare angrily. Or just discuss photo-faking in general and specifically.
Critique is welcome! I might even listen to suggestions, can't promise anything though, since I'm just a lowly faker. Not a miracle worker.

This is an experiment, the site does seem to pose problems for some, so let me know if you can't see any video.

Also there will be turtles.

First a Big thanx to everyone sending well wishes on my birthday :-)

Hope you all have had a great christmas!

The past year has been a rough one, but the past few months have brought a lot of changes, all for the better for me.
I now have a chance to change my life, new opportunities and higher hopes for the future then I've had in many years. Things are finally falling into place.
Just goes to show that you must never give up, the only constant is change and bad things don't last forever.

So looking forward to a new year, let's all make it a happy one!

We all have different faces that we put on when socializing in different groups. How you act at work can be very different from who you are at a pub with old friends. And that in turn is different from how you act if you visit a daycare center and sit down to play with a group of small children.
But none of these faces we put on changes us to the extreme that we do when we sit down behind a screen and talk to someone on the other side of the world, from behind an anonymous nickname. Because now, we have no face.

The Internet has changed us. Over the past 25 years, the information society has exploded. We live at a turning point in human history.
People say things on-line that they would never, ever, say directly to someones face. Because there is no direct consequence. You don't "have to" take responsibility for what you say anymore. Suddenly, people have no shame.
But you do have to think about what you are saying. The shit that comes out of your fingers as you type a message can have the same impact on someone that it would if you say it to their face. The only difference is that they can not punch you in the face for it. And you can't see them cry. So does this give you the right to not think before you say something?
No. It does not. You still have the same responsibility, to yourself. If you turn yourself into a monster. How will that make your life any better?

It never seizes to amaze me when people act like complete trolls on-line, but still defend their actions viciously. Most of the people who literally  everyone  else considers a troll. Does not think of themselves as such. They blurt out things that are utterly stupid, even humoruous at times. But still expect to be taken seriously.
Or in some cases, don't care at all about what people think of them. And yet they feel the need to tell everyone exactly how they feel.
If you don't care what someone thinks about what you say, why do you even bother saying it? If everyone else thinks the way you do, then nobody will care what you have to say in the first place...

A random hateful comment on, say a youtube video, signed "DarthBeercan". What weight does it really hold? To Darthbeercan, not much really. He probably forgot about it the next day. It did not really matter to him, because is just took a second to write and took no effort. So if what you're saying does not really matter. Why do you still have to say it?
To the one who uploaded the video who receives this comment, that casually tells them they are an idiot that should die in a fire and stop putting up worthless garbage. What weight does it really hold to them? If they spent a week of their lives carefully making this video, doing the best they could. How much does that one line matter to them?

We are all becoming increasingly lazy and increasingly impatient.

But when it is easy to destroy and much harder to build. How do you think this will develop if we keep getting more impatient, more lazy, more uncaring?
Uncaring. The only way to cope with this increasing mass of evil trolls, who do not consider themselves evil. Because nobody truly does think of themselves as evil. The only way to deal with this seems to be to become cold. To not take what people say to heart. To not care.

So the cycle is complete. People say stupid shit, because they don't care. And the people who have to put up with it, go on by not caring in turn.
So we end up with a society where nobody cares what anyone says and people say things that don't really mean anything.
Is that what we really want? To collectively become more detached to one another?
A world of short tweets that nobody cares about. A world where we don't bother to say thank you, we just click "like".

Sounds grim and simplistic. Doesn't it? Well, that's because it is.

The Net has at the same time brought us closer to people we would otherwise never have met. And it can make us say things that we are afraid to say face to face. We can open up and be honest in a way we find hard to do face to face. This can be a good thing. We can share in a new way. We can even find out new things about ourselves and broaden our world.

So how do we spin this new connected world in the right direction? How do we seize the positives off communication, instead of letting it slowly bury us?
The answer, as I see it is quite simple. There is only one rule you need to follow. No matter what you do on-line, on whatever device over whatever network.


Always think twice before you send.


It is really that simple. If you read what you just wrote again, and think. You may realize that what you wanted to say was perhaps not really that important. Does it really matter? Sure you found some dickbag on-line. But does calling him an asshat really change anything? It might piss the guy off. Sure. But what does that accomplish? If you start a flame war. Then congratulations. You just wasted your own time... As well as some screen space, perhaps the odd server space. You just contributed to the worthless mass of trolling we all wade in.
Was the thing you just typed constructive? Does it really add anything new? Is it useful to anyone, other then just letting off some of your steam?
Ask yourself, am I really saying something, or just spamming out empty words?
For the sake of? What. Why do you need to say this? Is this something I even want to say?

If you always ask yourself. What am I really saying? You can soon find out that you have a lot of answers to give yourself. If you just stop and let your brain catch up to what it is you are doing.
I don't always manage to live by this rule myself. I'm only human. For the most part.
Sometimes I make unnecessary lame jokes, sometimes I'm just tiered. But I try. That's all I can really do.
It helps to try and be less sloppy, do a spell check, go back and correct your hastily put together nonsense words. It always helps to actually say what you want to say. You can get words mixed up, or misspelled easily.

The point is, read your own words back to yourself. If they sound stupid, they probably are...

Thanx to everybody who sent well wishes on my birthday :-)

A lot is going on for me right now, but most of it is positive. So I'm really looking forward to next year. Things can only get better from here.

The re-design of the Nabber's Empire site has been well received. A new update with some additional features will come soon.
After that a new unrelated project may be started, but still to early to announce anything.
NE will be sailing on as usual though and the NE project will no doubt continue to develop in the future.
A big thanx to everyone who has donated and supported the project, it's because of you that we can continue running the site.

Time has caught up with me, I've tried to post a chapter a week on the Unity Wars story. But I won't make it this time.
It's a WIP and chapter 7 is still incomplete. I'll probably continue working on it, but yeah any regular schedule is out the window at this point.
Mostly it was a challenge to myself to see if I could deliver on a deadline. Not sure how many of you actually follow the story.

It's just an exercise in writing a genre I haven't done much. An idea that has seemed to take on a life of it's own. Usually I stick to self contained short stories, because I know I can actually finish them >_>
I know where the overall plot is going, so it might see a complete story arch in time.

Anyway thank you for reading and I do appreciate constructive feedback.

News flash... you don't get any favors from yelling and being rude. Then blocking me so I can't even respond.

Did you ever stop for a moment and think there may be reasons why we can't take in unlimited amounts of players to Nabber's Empire all at once? Does it not occur to you that I am doing the best I can to provide a game that people play, for free!!
That I spend endless hours of my free time running this project. For the sole purpose of giving something to the community. Do you really think I can make a living out of donations? That's only to keep the site alive. So it can exist in the first place.

And for what? To get shit from people like you? Is that what drives me to make an effort? Is that why I create and share the things I do? So you can curse and yell at me?
Are you so fucking spoiled and ignorant! Do you think that a website is something that just magically appears without and coding, administration or cost. Without any work... If that's the case why don't you make one yourself?

Do you think that what you do on-line has no consequences, just because you have anonymity? Do you think I like you now? Do you think you are not a Troll?
That money grows on trees, people don't need to eat.
I am sick and tiered of you people expecting everything for free, without any effort or sacrifice. Not as much as a thank you.
The Internet is not free, like air, you pay for your connection. And the Internet does NOT owe you anything.  I  don't owe you anything.

If what you get, for free, is not good enough for you. If you want more. Do it yourself!

Or I can take down My DA. Close my website. Stop helping other communities. Stop sharing my writing, my colorings and manipulations. Stop selling the Maid for Bondage game (which would make my partner very sad, but hey Cao doesn't need any money, right?). Pull the plug on Nabber's Empire. And focus all my effort into writing a new translator program, just for you. How's that?
Thanx to everyone who left well wishes on my birthday. Though honestly I'm not sure what's to celebrate about it. Just another year older. If anything, it would be knowing that there are people who care. I'll drink to that.

Christmas has been good, all about the important things: Family, food and drink. Sauna and shoveling endless droves of snow.

And so I'll raise a glass (albeit a bit early) for the coming year. Let's make it a good one (because it doesn't come for free). Think of lessons learned and future goals. And for some reason boobs.
