People always told me I should write a book about my life. While I'm not famous, my life has been a bewildering series of highs-and-lows, bizarre consequences, and nearly unbelievable war stories.
My name is Jason Quinlan. I was born to a middle-class family on September 11, 1971, in Norwich, Connecticut. By trade, I am an Internet marketer with a specialty and search engine optimization. During my life I've worn many hats: Punk rock / metal icon, musical prodigy, tuberculosis survivor, lifelong atheist, Atlanta-curmudgeon-turned-Internet-millionaire, guitar shredder, adult affiliate program owner, drug dealer, accidental arsonist, computer geek, pornographer, penniless musician, Hollywood Hills millionaire, writer, whore-monger, world traveler, strip-club connoisseur, social / political commentator, convicted felon, modern-day Julius Caesar and best skim-boarder above the age of 12 in Southern California.
That's just what I can think of off the top my head.
I've been working on this book for a couple years. I found it daunting: Compiling, arranging and editing the words anything digestible. Coupled with the fact, when I had thought I'd composed my last chapter — more fucked up shit would happen! I gave up and decided to release the book one-chapter-at-a-time / in-no-particular-chronological-order on this blog.
The subject of my first official post is, unfortunately, something as relevant today as it was September 11, 2001.
Stay tuned for the first official chapter.
