Is TR a group thing or just you?? I used to see you with the same staffers. Like a team back at other cons and concerts. Now I see you with random merch people at each event o.O.....

That's actually a good question that has been on my mind for a while. Tainted reality has never really had a localized staff. We've always kinda been spread all across the eastern sea board, which has made it difficult to get everyone to events and concerts. Infact, I've never had our entire roster in the same room at the same time! It's just always been hard to get everyone together.

The other problem is, at this point, Tainted Reality has been in operation for over 5 years. People who were with us in the beginning are at a completely different place in their lives now, and don't have too much time to help. TR has always been an organization that was run out of a bedroom, and we have never really had the money to give people a steady wage. At this point in TR's progress, we hire volunteers who can help out and are available given the time off from their day job, their proximity to the event, and what the budget allows. We usually try to invite the people who have been with us for a while first, but if we just can't we hire local friends to help out.

Just don't hurt me!
