I Create Memes That Make Most People Feel Ignorant

I wake up with ideas in my head. I’m usually up between 5-6 a.m. banging on the keyboard in the semi-dark as she still sleeps.

Alcohol abstention is having quite the effect. I’m easily past the point of no return. I’ve tried life with alcohol and without and hands-down prefer the latter. It’s so easy to come up with better things to do, since almost anything is something that’s better to do. Those and many stories…for another time…on Patreon, SubscribeStar, and eventually, open-access here. Below—after my Black and WhiteI’ll outline a bit of what’s in store on all fronts. Don’t miss that part.

This one, above, was actually from an Ausie expat, in Thailand for the last 30 years

The last four are what I’ve settled on for my “Meming Brand.” It’s Black & White.

I’ll generally put up at east a couple in the morning, Thailand time (early evening east coast and late afternoon west, USA). They are posed identically and simultaneously on

Interestingly, I’m heavily shadow-banned on both Facebook and Twitter. How do I know? Well beyond many telling me they NEVER see my posts unless they specifically go to my post profile, I have only 800 followers on Pinterest, have never engaged there or done anything to promote it, and I have about 120,000 views monthly, dwarfing the others combined.


I have three basic gigs on the burner, to be run simultaneously.

  1. A series for Patreon and SubscribeStar about Donald Trump The CatThe nine lives of a winner and why he’ll win again…or something like that. This will wrap up prior to the election, so my conclusion is tested. Probably 12 posts or so. It will publish here, open access, beginning after the election.
  2. An ongoing series of stories, photo logs, food pics, etc., about life and lessons here in rural Thailand and how life evolved such that I’m here. Right now, I’m drafting a post about a small streetside open-air restaurant I funded in full, an how it’s going. These posts will be on the pledge support sites and will eventually publish here with no advance notice (you’ll never know).
  3. An open-access series here at FTA of 20-25 posts covering Alex Leaf’s Fat Loss Blueprint. It’s high time that I devote some time, once again, to fat loss, health, strength, and longevity now that I’ve gone a good way towards cleaning up my own life through radical changes. All you’ll have to do is sell everything and move half-way across the world. [Just kidding]

OK, that’s about all.

    In my humble opinion, effective memes are short and integrate a pic to catch the eye.

      Yes yes yes. I know. I’m taking my liberties.
