i actually had forgotten about him
thank you for this
I like an honest fight and a saucy little maid
What he’s basically saying is he likes to get…paid
The internet can bastardize it all it likes, Shrek was a great fuckin film.
my favorite thing about hiatuses is the way the fans go a bit dormant, and hide under mountains of fics and rewatches and other shows
but then something happens, filming starts, and suddenly
what happened to the sherlock fandom and why didn’t we go dormant we’ve just been sitting here losing our minds
Dormancy is boring
this whole notion that guys who wear pink are suddenly feminine is so ridiculous. women aren’t portrayed as manly if they wear blue??? it reminds me of this quote i once read by gwen sharp, “Femininity is depicted as weakness, the sapping of strength, yet masculinity is so fragile that apparently even the slightest brush with the feminine destroys it.”
There are puns

What’s Up with Start Ups
I’m just getting a little sick of the system that values aggregators of content more than creators of content, and presumes some kind of magical future where owning users free time results in lots of money.
This is a really interesting Hank video. I think he slightly undervalues concrete/platforms like tumblr, but the underlying point is a very important one to me: In a world where the media landscape is shaped and defined by advertisers, your attention and your creations are the product for sale. Tumblr is not free. It is paid for by you giving it time and making things with it.
I like to imagine a world in which vlogbrothers, and even much more expensive projects like Crash Course can be sustainable without advertising, but because this ad-driven world is accepted so widely, I’m not sure it will ever happen.
Hank and I both continue to be profoundly troubled by it, though, and we’re working hard to imagine other ways to sustain the creators of awesome things, because if I’m going to be for sale, I don’t want Delicious Diet Dr. Pepper Which Tastes More Like Real Dr. Pepper to decide how much you and I are worth. I want us to decide.
