Yep. It’s really just a place for all of the collaborations that Sam and I create to live. But it has inspired us to create a lot more stuff together. I am so excited about what we are posting this week.

flyingscotsman said: No worries Nate! However while I see your argument I'll make one point and leave. Artists make the overwhelming majority of their revenue from live concerts and special engagement tickets, and merchandise sales. Record companies make money off album sales. How many people have gone to pay for tickets at a concert featuring a band that they first discovered due to pirated/redistributed material? I'm not saying pirating music is right in all cases but I just wanted you to see my side.

That’s such a good point. I agree with you on that. And I guess my perspective is from a broader view of any creative content, but I stuck with the musician example that had been used in the joke. 

I guess my real beef is with what seems to be a prevalent mentality I see these days where people think they should be getting everything for free, and we resent anyone who is successful and wealthy, no matter how they got there.

Here’s a different example. I see people complaining about sites like thefrogman.me or pleated-jeans.com having ads. Those sites are good examples of individuals who are providing us with a great product. They spend hours every day working to create new original content on a daily basis. And you get to see that great content for FREE. The small charge you have to pay is seeing a few ads on their site. And that’s ONLY if you go to their main site. If you follow them on Tumblr, you never see those ads. 

I guess my main point is, if a product or service provides you value then you should be willing to pay for it.

KILL IT WITH FIRE!

flyingscotsman replied to your post: Not only were you on Conan, but your “Don’t touch this” post was on Reddit. You are overlord of the internet at the moment Nate. It’s a well overdue accolade you deserve!

Wow, the comments on this thread are painfully stupid. Not all of them. But most of them. If you’re a Reddit user check this out and hey, maybe give me a shout out. CLICK HERE

I think a cat could lick that “facial hair” off

Wait…that isn’t that how everyone shaves?

Tumblr Crushes: I like that the top three on my list are Tumblrers who are creating a lot of their own original content.
thefrogman - Mainly for his beard.
flyingscotsman - Creating some really great original content
pleatedjeans - Brilliantly funny
funnyordie - Great videos
seulery - Hilarious mom. Don’t mention her hormones.
sirmitchell - I joined his Movember team! Donate to a good cause HERE!
finalellipsis - Did you see his “Do A Barrel Roll" GIF? Hilarious
nastycute - So glad she’s back on my dash again. Hilariously nasty writing juxtaposed with cute animals.
afternoonsnoozebutton - Becoming a staple of my Tumblr diet.
I had a realization last night. Like most Tumblrers, I have spent a lot of time pining for more followers and scheming on how to get more followers. But I realized this is sort of as if I was doing a live comedy show and instead of focusing on my audience, I was constantly looking out the door hoping more audience members would show up. I’m not going to do that anymore.
Every comedian wants a bigger audience. But once the show starts, all that matters is the audience you have. I’m going to start focusing more on the followers I have. You guys are great and seeing your likes, reblogs, and replies really makes my day.
