Joining Patreon and an Odyssey

O
ver the coming weeks, you'll get to suffer through my next project, lovingly titled Morosoph's Odyssey. Remember "Intronaut Live, One"? How about that colossal failure that was "Intronaut Live, Two"? I'm fairly certain you missed "Intronaut Live, Three" because it was never posted. Yeah, I'm a terrible human being because I never finished writing it. No, really. I am. Because I believe you have to finish something you start. And it was the brilliant film producer, Max Bialystock, after all, who once said, "That's it, baby, when you you've got it, flaunt it! Flaunt it!"

So, you'll get "Three" one day, along with all the other misshapen, incomplete creations, just because they have to come out eventually. Eventually doesn't mean today, however. Instead you'll be getting "Intronaut Live, Four" in all but name. Why the name-change? Simply, writing about my fourth journey to watch Intronaut perform live took on a life of its own - to the point that the final result is longer than all previous "reviews" combined (including the unpublished "Three"). In fact, I'll be breaking it up into four parts, it's that long. And why is it so long, when previous "reviews" only cracked a thousand words? Well, you'll have to wait for that answer, but you can be assured that discovering it will require more patience than you've ever had reading my tales.

Are you ready for that?

A second (and slightly more important) thing I want to discuss is my Patreon page. Up until now I've had a donation button hidden in the About page, because I don't want to be one of those people who use guilt or appeal to emotion to fund a creative addiction, but still appreciate anyone who wants to contribute more albums or films. Predictably, I had exactly zero donations. That donation button is gone, now, and I'm trying Patreon's model.
