About fodder4Us:For all of you creative types:


In my head I hear two voices:

—I should be doing more…

All day at that job —you know the one that I have because it pays the bills —I should be doing more… Sunday evening after wasting another weekend on junkfood|booze, Internet and cable television —I should be doing more…  Another day, another year, less hair, more gut, same shit, different day —I should be doing more…

—I got nothing…

One time in a hostile argument I shouted out, “I got NOTHING! I've got nothing left for you. I don't know what to do any more. I'm out of ideas and… I dunno' I don't even know what to say anymore.” That conflict is gone and the situation is resolved but —I got nothing… I've heard it for years. That's why it jumped off my tongue so easily in that argument. When I pick up my camera|pencil|stick and then try to —I got nothing… Open up the laptop/word processor so I can —I got nothing… Grab a colleague and attempt to convey even a spark of an idea —I got nothing…


—I should be doing more… is true. I should be doing a lot more. And yet every time I try to listen to that voice. There is that 2nd voice, yelling, whining, jeering and whispering. Not just when I start, but sometimes all throughout any attempt to do, be, imagine or create.

—I got nothing… is a lie. That's what I believe. This is my way to deal with both of those voices in my head. I will do more. And, not only do I have something. I've got just the thing:


This web site is an attempt to cultivate raw materials, finished works, perspective, inspiration, solidarity, therapy and chronicles for frustrated artisans and creative types—specifically me; namely for us.


This is my big trough of muse feed; your bundled up shock of creativity. Fodder for us.
