"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."

"We’re getting divorced because we love each other, and we both realize that we don’t have enough of what the other needs. When we decided to get divorced, I wrote a note with all the things I loved about her, and gave it to her. She got very emotional and started crying. Then three days later, she wrote me a similar note. But here’s the thing—- she wrote it on the back of a recycled piece of paper. She wrote it on the back of an advertisement or something. So I called her out on it. And she said: ‘I knew you were going to bring that up. If you cared, you wouldn’t mind what it was written on.’ And I said: ‘Well, if you cared, you’d have gotten a fresh piece of paper.’"

that’s fuckign depressing.

everblackcs said: What are your prices like?

sufferme:

typically monetarily based, and trying to keep the balance of a fair compensation for the best work I can do, based on national and local averages alike. above all, I try to lead people away from the horrors of playing “let’s make a deal”. I’ve never seen someone attempt to sell one of my tattoos “used” on eBay, so I’m assuming it’s working and my price is fair.

but seriously, if you’re interested in the prospect of getting work done, email us at info.thedrowntown@gmail.com, you’ll find your answers there. I personally think it’s tacky to put a price on services over the internet where people tend to “shop” for artists. would you “shop” for a surgeon? how much would someone expect to pay a one of a kind piece of artwork that no one else on earth would ever be able to own? would it matter?
