πŸ€ Somebody had to be me. Might as well be me! – Charles Barkley

Ricky Nolan Browne was born April 6th 1977. He has a wife, a son and a kid on the way.

Ricky was diagnosed with a mental illness in 2001 (around the same time he became a prophet, coincidentally). Ricky got pro-active about recovering from issues relating to his (at the time) poorly managed condition after he hit rock bottom in 2012 and has been on a recovery journey ever since. Ricky now enjoys a happy and fulfilling life despite his diagnosis.

Ricky is a high functioning schizophrenic that likes to spend his time in productive and sometimes useful ways, mostly in the digital realm. He makes a living designing websites, along with money he gets from the government for being crazy and shit.

The Struggling Artist.

OnΒ Writing

Ricky learned to write at school, most of his early writing was crap because like most kids he was ignorant and stupid. He had early success with a really short story called β€œRicky by Ant” and later in high school for a four-page booklet called β€œThe big note under the door”, which was thrown out by his mother as it included illustrations of a pair of mosquitos engaging in fourplay. Ricky wasn’t a good reader in his younger years and avoided it whenever possible. He read 3 or 4 novels while at school and after high school his only reading was computer magazines, he started reading regularly when he got dial-up internet. While Ricky’s writing has improved, he has had periods where he wasted a lot of time thinking about writing but put so much pressure on himself, he could not produce. He has since realised his limitations and finds it easier to write his bullshit nobody wants to read.

On Art & Design

Although Ricky enjoyed art in school and did pretty good in art class, he had no interest in pursuing it as a career. Ricky wanted to be a comedian and assumed that he would just have to act like a fool 24/7 and somehow by osmosis, he would be discovered. This never happened so Ricky decided to be the next Mark Zuckerburger, at a time when Facebook didn’t exist. What happened while following this pursuit, Ricky signed up to a web design course in order to create the next big thing and actually learned how to make dinky HTML websites for other people.

While pursuing his goals of world domination, his course also led him to learn how to design graphics on the computer, leading him full circle back to the whole art thing.

Has he improved much over time? That’s debatable, but he has at least stopped using the glow tool all the time and has moved on from the font β€˜Bank Gothic’.

On Illustration

Ricky N Browne never had the hand coordination or creativity to be a great illustrator, this, however, has not stopped him from giving it a red hot go. Ricky started out drawing dicks as a kid and has progressed ever so slowly from there.

He recently purchased a cheap electronic illustration tablet which has renewed his interest in the drawing.

On Humour

Ricky N Browne’s old mantra was β€œMake them laugh, at any cost”. Ricky is a changed man these days, with a mantra more along the lines of β€œGet off my lawn,” Ricky got laughs at an early age, which made him decide to become someone who was looking for the funny in every situation, no matter its appropriateness. Ricky has since grown into a crotchety old man who cares little for this sort of shenanigans and tomfoolery.

On Achievements

Ricky has yet to win the Order of Australia Medal, an Oscar, a Logie, a Bafta, the Medal of Honour, Australian of the Year, or even a free Paddle Pop from a Streets Paddle Pop Licker Prize. You name it and Ricky hasn’t won it. Ricky has however received various Certificates for Courses he completed including the odd First Aid Certificate. Ricky also has a certificate of his almost spotless police record, except for a mention of his license disqualification for drinking and driving. Ricky’s certificates can be found here. Among Ricky Nolan Browne’s achievements was a play he was part of (Circa. 2014) called β€˜Away’ which he performed with the Wesley Players where he was able to remember over half of his lines.

UPDATE 1

Nearly finished my site (This site) after starting to rebuild it late last year. Nearly ready to start churning out content, I've got one website to finish building for my brother in law. My goal was to be at this stage at the end of the financial year. Can't wait to start writing and making videos instead of designing websites.

That feeling

The fan on with the doona pulled up
Ankle scratches and earbuds
A hot shower in winter
Your first beer on a hot afternoon
A piss with a full bladder
Red cordial hungover
Rest after work
Downtime
The release of a new season of your favourite show
Finishing a project
The high after exercise
Competing with friends
Spending quality time with someone you love
A certain type of intimacy
Hugs and kisses
The right song at the right time
Good food
Waking up fresh
Finding a solution to a problem
Letting go
Acceptance
Washed and showered, teeth clean
Laying in the soft cool grass on a warm day
A nod, a wink or a smile
Going to bed tired and hitting the pillow
A good chat
A deep and meaningful conversation
The feeling that everything is ok.

Modafinil

I have sleep apnea so I can get this with a script, you can't get it legally otherwise, but there are plenty of overseas sites that you can buy it through if you know how to pay with cryptocurrency.
