Progressive Pr0n Pledge Period

shystee's picture

Here's our indecent fundraising proposal:

You, gentle readers, sign up as Sustaining Contributors and in return our beloved Chicago Dyke will post weekly installments of a racy politico/sexual fantasy novella of her own creation.

Our goal is to sign up monthly contributions totalling $100 by next Monday, July 23. This will trigger the first installment of the novella.

We will repeat this Progressive Pr0n Pledge Period during the first week of August, to account for the lunar paycheck cycle, and raise another $100 in recurring contributions. Then the weekly installments of the novella will begin in earnest.

And by earnest we mean hot and steamy. CD has hinted that the novella may involve, among other things, "a french nymphette submissive" and a "honey dripping strap-on proboscis of occult knowledge".

But seriously, folks: the server costs are running about $200/month and we want to continue bringing you the bloggy goodness you enjoy here on a daily if not hourly basis.

So won't you please click here or the large blue button on your right and give 'till it hurts so good?

Must not have any scumbag GoPerverts in it then. That could work.

Oh, you can be as tall, or as wide as nature and luck have made you, but when it comes to moral stature, small donors are the ticket.

I mean small donors are all the rage.

We're down with Obama on that score; better 100 contributors who can afford $5 a month, or 150 who can afford $2.50 than a single corporate giver, or a giver with one of those portfolios filled with corporate stock holdings, although we are not suggesting we would discriminate against such persons or entities.

Think of becoming a sustaining contributor as something akin to attending one of those rent parties people used to throw during the depression, where neighbors would bring pot luck and some change to help a friend out of work to meet the rent; when enough people show up, it doesn't matter that nickels and dimes (adjusted for inflation, let's say $5 and $10) are the going rate – and think of us as those good neighbors who are throwing a virtual monthly rent party, but, like for the whole building, and with one fabulous door prize, every month.

But I think I would rather read CD's, no offense.

The donations are for server costs and should be motivated by appreciation for the service provided by the Mighty Corrente Building.

Teh pr0n is a "door prize" as Leah said, an incentivizing trinket. A white-hot, mind-blowing trinket.

RLang, don't take offense, please share your thoughts on the topic. Really, there would certainly be interest in what goes on down in the deeper recesses of your consciousness. Don't keep it all bottled up, let it out, let it fly free!

I'm with bringiton....

I can imagine scenarios where you'd need to be sorry -- snuff films, like the ones that Cheney had piped into the West Wing from Abu Ghraib -- but really, they're not very likely.

So why be sorry?

well, unless this carpet munching bodice ripping marketing strap-on idea of yours involves mildew and proboscis monkeys you won't get a single sweaty-dripping submissive nickle from my honey jar. I want to see some mildew. French mildew! I want dirty French mildew!....!!!!!

avec les sanges probiscois...

mon dieu indeed...

but farmer, I think we have the potential here for a mighty computer-generated animated NC-17 feature, or did they get rid of that rating...I forget

Well hell, why not go for the first X feature

I mean, rats in a kitchen in Ratatouille...go see it, it's amazing.

I'm coming around on the computer-generated stuff, still prefer the 2 dimensional drawn ones...

any of you who haven't seen Brad Bird's "The Iron Giant," a recent 2 dimension hand-wrought animated feature, a cold-war fantasy set in the fifties in which the war-mongering governement doesn't win, defeated by a bright pre-teen, his single mother, and a beatnik sculptor who runs a junk yard from which he gets the materials for his own giant constructionist (very David Smith) sculptors, and the Iron Giant, of course, use your Netflix, or get thee to your local video store, which probably only caries DVDs...

Nice to see "Turkish Hastert Porn" still racking up the hits. Though I'm afraid that phrase gives me a very bad picture....

I get perhaps the loveliest "Page Not Found" notice I've ever seen. Code looks to have a repetition in it as well as ending in an ".sql" which if it means what I think it means I don't think can be linked to.

I think.

But for sure, that's my one time today to risk clicking on something with the heading "Turkish Hastert Porn" so I will leave it to others to see if it ever gets fixed. :)

Though I have to say that "fixed" gives me a very bad picture. Worse, possibly, than the original bad picture I had.

french mildew maids: that would be a good name for a band. and... speaking of proboscis monkeys, mr p-niss signed my name to that comment up there without my knowlege. hes mad because i made him stop writing letters to lynne cheney trying to convince her to direct his lesbian musical adaptation of willa cather's "O Pioneers! (in which he gets to play crazy ivar).

But seriously, farmer, that's a little implausible. I mean, how could mr p-niss have signed your name to anything?

Hmmmm. That means I am going to have to get paypal working and send some money doesn't it...

Submitted by lambert on

See the FAQ.

A credit card is required, and I can see why they wouldn't want to process physical mail.

I can't find PayPal on the site, though that doesn't mean it's not there. I have a question in to support as to why it's not there (I suspect to keep transaction costs as low as possible?)
