At this time, the pay is non-existant and the working conditions are terrible. All our pencils are broken. The cat is meowing at his empty bowl. The doorbell is broken. We do this simply for the FAME & GLORY.

Otherwise, if you really, really like our site, please buy me that Tibetan Singing Bowl I've always wanted. I'm sure the wife and the cat will be absolutely thrilled when I stay up all night composing music with it and GarageBand. Maybe I'll write a song about you. Well, anyway... Thanks for stoppin' by our web and reading this far!
