Donkey Woman / Stalled Stall

Well, well, it turns out Donkey’s mark in L.A. is none other than octogenarian movie/TV hack Garry Marshall. Did ass kissing agent Steven play million dollar matchmaker? Name Dropping Dadsers will be so pleased!

What’ll they change in the famous Rodeo Drive scenes when Julie Albertson stars in the inevitable remake?

More crowdsourcing! This time, stall related:

Does anyone have a place to park and perhaps even AirBnB an RV? Or does anyone want to buy an epic RV?

So my former partner Devin & I bought this incredible RV together two years ago (we dubbed it the Wolf Den), and because he just moved to Oakland, he doesn’t have a place to park it (it’s not safe to park it there).

Renting an RV for Burning Man usually runs about 5-7k, so we thought we would amortize the costs in just a few years, and we really love this baby.

He feels like he’s in a tight spot and is considering selling it (which I vehemently do not want him to do) … at the VERY least I’d like to keep the RV within our family / tribe / network of friends … It was fantastic when we bought it, and he upgraded it, too. Ugh, I would hate to lose it.

Let me know if you have any bright ideas!!

Jesus, who the fuck could live inside a Peter Max poster and keep their sanity? Who the hell paid for this RV? It’s not like either Julie or Devin has disposable income?

Up, Up & Away as Donkey Defaces Her In-Flight Magazine


Look out La La Land! A braying, clomping donkey is descending upon your city:

As much as I hate to admit it, I sometimes miss the addiction of travel, allowing you to “forget” whatever issues were bogging you down in the city you’re leaving behind. As far as strategies for avoidance, travel is a great one. wink emoticon I almost always feel better when that plane takes off. I wonder what proportion of that relief is healthy (movement displacing stuck energy) and what is full on avoidance of just being with yourself, even if that means you have to be with some very uncomfortable emotions? Hmm. — travelling to Los Angeles, California from San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

All that air time means there’s plenty of time to deface more reading material, with Donkey relating every article back to her expired self.  No gently used magazine here:

Hey, Avocado, Here Comes The Competition!


Author, life coach, jeweler, love-ah, and now, apparently overnight, Michael Austin Jacobs is a musician. Per Skankatron:

So now for a picture. My beloved making music. In the bathroom/office/recording studio.

I had no idea when we met and I found myself in love that he was a musician. And then this …

Recording his own, brand new style of music. Shamanic hip-hop. What?!? How’d I get so lucky?

I’m excited for y’all to hear it.

Don’t be surprised, Ali. No one knew Fozzie was a musician, probably not even Fozzie, but a cup of Aya makes anything possible.

Somebody’s already groovin’ to that shamnic hip-hop!

The Inimitable Julia Allison Kisses More Rich Ass


Oh, Donkey. Bidness advice from a woo-ey Bel Air divorcée living off her wealthy ex-husband? And since “hard work” is out of the question, what do you have to offer the world that’s “unique and compelling”? And no, getting cat peeps to point & laugh doesn’t count.

The inimitable Justine Musk shines forth with her epic wisdom …
Justine, bowing to you.


QUORA question: Will I become a billionaire if I am determined to be one and put in all the necessary work required?


One of the many qualities that separate self-made billionaires from the rest of us is their ability to ask the right questions.

This is not the right question.

(Which is not to say it’s a bad question. It just won’t get that deep part of your mind working to help you — mulling things over when you think you’re thinking about something else — sending up flares of insight.)

You’re determined. So what? You haven’t been racing naked through shark-infested waters yet. Will you be just as determined when you wash up on some deserted island, disoriented and bloody and ragged and beaten and staring into the horizon with no sign of rescue?

We live in a culture that celebrates determination and hard work, but understand: these are the qualities that keep you in the game after most everybody else has left, or until somebody bigger and stronger picks you up and hurls you back out to sea. Determination and hard work are necessary, yes, but they are the minimum requirements. As in: the bare minimum.

A lot of people work extremely hard and through no fault of their own — bad luck, the wrong environment, unfortunate circumstances — struggle to survive.

How can you *leverage* your time and your work?

Shift your focus away from what you want (a billion dollars) and get deeply, intensely curious about what the world wants and needs. Ask yourself what you have the potential to offer that is so unique and compelling and helpful that no computer could replace you, no one could outsource you, no one could steal your product and make it better and then club you into oblivion (not literally). Then develop that potential. Choose one thing and become a master of it. Choose a second thing and become a master of that. When you become a master of two worlds (say, engineering and business), you can bring them together in a way that will a) introduce hot ideas to each other, so they can have idea sex and make idea babies that no one has seen before and b) create a competitive advantage because you can move between worlds, speak both languages, connect the tribes, mash the elements to spark fresh creative insight until you wake up with the epiphany that changes your life.

The world doesn’t throw a billion dollars at a person because the person wants it or works so hard they feel they deserve it. (The world does not care what you want or deserve.) The world gives you money in exchange for something it perceives to be of equal or greater value: something that transforms an aspect of the culture, reworks a familiar story or introduces a new one, alters the way people think about the category and make use of it in daily life. There is no roadmap, no blueprint for this; a lot of people will give you a lot of advice, and most of it will be bad, and a lot of it will be good and sound but you’ll have to figure out how it doesn’t apply to you because you’re coming from an unexpected angle. And you’ll be doing it alone, until you develop the charisma and credibility to attract the talent you need to come with you.

Have courage. (You will need it.)

And good luck. (You’ll need that too.)”
