I think that badges don't go to "you" per se... they go to the post. So this post has been badged, not you.

There is a secret sauce algorithm that determines when you earn badges to spend (posts, comments, shares, etc). That algorithm might include a factor of having your content badged... That I don't know.

I hope that helps.

I have no intelligent commentary to give. I just applaud you for taking the initiative.

net neutrality = good.

corporations completely owning everything about me and ass raping me repetitively = bad

Welp... I might as well take the whole bottle of pills and lie back down...

Four miles west of downtown Denver. Super convenient to highways and amenities. PM me if Denver makes sense for your travel schedule. Even if it's just for a lunch stop, hit me up and I'll buy the band lunch.

Edit: screw that - you guys should come stay if possible. We could even do a house show. And your keys player has to show my oldest kid a thing or two.

look man... Yep... a vocal chunk of trump supporters reflect the worst of humanity (and so does he). But a larger chunk is just tired of the status quo. They're voting against "the system", they're voting against Senator/Secretary Clinton. They want the closest thing to a republican they can find... They don't hate you. They're not all gun-toting, homophobic, xenophobic, troglodytes...

blergh... now I sound like I'm trying to justify Trump or his terrible supporters... I'm most certainly not. I don't know many people who completely agree with him on everything. I could never vote for the man.

I guess what I'm saying is - we've broken bread, you and I. I think there are more of us (sensible people who agree on a lot of stuff, who want to be kind and civil, and have some minor policy differences) than them (cruel, divisive, inconsiderate bigots). You and I are super different, but can sit down and have a burrito. We can live next door to each other and bemoan the constant increases in CU tuition... I promise... regardless of the outcome of this election - you're valued and wanted around here. Stick around - I like you as a neighbor.

INT. SANDWICH SHOP - OVERLY WHITE ACADEMIC SUBURB - AFTERNOON

A fat middle aged man walks into a busy sandwich shop and approaches handsome young college student eating alone at table

   steve: "yo Samurai! Hubski Meet up YAH!"

   you: "WTF dude - Who are you? Pups Ski? What? I have no idea what you're talking about.  CAN'T A MAN EAT IN PEACE?!"

   steve: "but... you're the only person of color in Boulder county right now. you have to be you"

   you: "eat shit you racist weirdo"

   steve: "but... hubskina... and... insom... and kb... and... tng... and.... stickers?"

   you: "you're weird dude. go home"

fat middle aged man cries into his BLT and quietly slaps a sticker on the window as he leaves

FADE TO BLACK

steve  ·  757 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How Much is Music Really Worth?

steve's opinion:

Art doesn't pay.

music, literature, sculpture, film, photography, dance, painting...

Art is Art.

business is business.

The tiny fraction of artists who are able to make art they believe in whilst making a living wage are one of three things:

1 - ridiculously fortunate (lightning strikes once in a while)

2 - so talented that they have broad appeal and enough people are willing to pay

3 - making art that they may not entirely believe in - but it pays well and see point #1.

Most successful artists that I am aware of fall into one of those three buckets. There are probably more buckets. And I don't know what I'm talking about. This is just the rambling opinions of the village idiot.

If I ever go to grad school - my dissertation will be titled: God Hates Artists
