For years, I've been sporadically creating and releasing things like: my podcast, Swings and Roundabouts; my humour magazine, Framed Egg; my collection of essays, Right Body, Wrong Junk; a short book about God inventing depression, Tumblr projects like Jesus and Judas and Proud Nature; and individual pieces on places like The Toast and McSweeney's. And, of course, I post new jokes on my Twitter every day, and I genuinely think I'm one of the funniest people on there.

In the past, I've gotten occasional support for all this from fans like you, in the form of: purchases of my book and magazine, pledges for one-off crowdfunding campaigns, and donations. Now, I use Patreon to make that income more predictable, so that I can create more work without the anxiety of living hand-to-mouth.

I desperately want to create more funny and insightful content for the people who like my work, and the biggest impediment to my success is my anxiety, particularly about my often-dire financial situation. Any relief of that financial pressure, even by a dollar a month, gets me closer to making meaningful work.

If you can support me, I would be extremely grateful, and I will do my very best to honor that support.

I love you.

I've heard a theory that a lot of people don't actually care about rewards for Patreons, that they just want a way to support the person they like for the stuff they're already getting for free (anecdotal evidence–this is true for myself and the Patreons I support). In my case, that would be my tweets, I guess. 


If you like me and my tweets, and can spare the dollar (or a little more) per month, hopefully you won't be too put off by my not promising a reward (which I'd end up getting too anxious or stressed out to deliver anyway, my brain is broken, sorry).

Goals
$514 of $640 per month
Despite living in one of the most expensive cities in the world, my rent is really cheap, because I live in a tiny box room in a shared house (we have fun! I assume, because I don't spend a lot of time actually talking to my housemates. But it seems like they have fun). I'm not complaining–my little room is perfectly adequate as a place to sit while I stare at this glowing box and make things on it. If I get six hundred bucks from this Patreon, I'll be able to keep living here every month.
