Yeah. I'm sure that's what he thought when he was making this movie. "I need to devote some time to fighting slash fanfiction."

A whole lot of Trek fans got their start with TNG and the subsequent series, only getting into TOS later if at all.

Yup, that's me too.

I still think TNG is pretty much the best series. I think the characters are better and play off each other better than any other Trek.

Well, okay, I guess that's not technically true, I think my true introduction to Star Trek was "The Search For More Whales", which is still awesome.

I think the best part about the Blu-Ray remasters so far is that they recut Measure of a Man to 57 minutes long. Great episode, even if it had a couple miscues.

You know that feeling you get when you find out an artist/writer you respect turns out to be a complete asshole? Post your stories ITT.
Pic unrelated.

I'll start with mine:

Orson Scott Card: I liked Ender's Game, then I find out the guy's a fundie nutbag who thinks gay people are destroying America and wrote a Hamlet retelling where Hamlet's dad is a gay pedophile who molested Horatio, turning him gay in the process. I'm not fucking kidding.

Dave Sim: Had an enjoyable comic, and then he went total apeshit crazy.

I've always liked her art; I learned a lot from her on terms of dragon bodies and whatnot.

However, one day I was doing stream commissions and she popped into my stream channel named "Tojothefaggot". I was tempted to ask her to change the name because of the usage of the word "faggot" could seem rather offensive to my viewers that were gay but I left it be. Anywho, she want a stream commission of her half-dragon character.

Sure, no problem. I charge extra for dragons and half-dragon characters because dragon-related commissions take longer for me to do since said characters can often be complicated, and I put more detail into them.

She didn't want to pay the extra fee, and complained about it and my prices for dragon-related pictures; then proceeded to pretty much advertise herself onto my stream saying

"Whatever, just send the dragons my way. lol"

I'm like..uhm..wow, I didn't know what to think about that and she left the stream, leaving me rather flabbergasted; I think I still have the conversation saved somewhere. If I can find it, I'll post it.

But yeah, it's one thing if you don't agree with someone's prices, but you don't have to be a prick about it, and then advertise yourself in their stream.

Can we talk more about Andrew Dickman? Cause I think there's a wee bit more to cover.

Like how he also hates JonTron and Egoraptor? And his utter undying devotion to Doug Walker and company? And the fact he tried to get away with shitty anatomy in one pic with "I'm popular"?

They're also those videos on his site, there was one that featured a "friend" of his and his girlfriend, well... Remember in RLM's review of the Phantom Menace they talked about the behind the scene stuff with George Lucas? How people seemed to be constantly on edge/afraid around him and laughing nervously at his "jokes?" It was kind of like watching that.
>> No. 10844 ID: e2170e
I don't know too much about the guy, so I can't really offer anything but possible explanations, but...

Some people just hate JonTron and EgoRaptor, just like they hate the Two Best Friends guys or PewDiePie or any other "popular" people on the internet. They find them annoying or childish or what-have-you. AWD is certainly not alone in this belief; I've encountered several people who feel the same way.

As for his "undying devotion" to Doug Walker and Channel Awesome, it could be because they probably pay him to create bumper art, animation props, and other art-related things.

Wow. The punchline of this page is Janie looming over Angelica threateningly, grabbing her and yelling at her, while Angelica screams for Janie to not hurt her and Charlie stands blankly and ineffectually in the background to remind us she's still there.

I know we bitch about Jay Naylor a lot in here, but this guy needs a thread right the fuck now.

This, if you don't know, is Tim Buckley, the author of Ctrl+Alt+Del.

I just got the opportunity to read the "ending" of the comic. And I will admit I raged. What's Tim's reply?

> It means it's time for a good ol' fashioned "Hollywood reboot".

I've been reading this marginally decent comic for almost 10 FUCKING YEARS. No, I don't want to see a goddamned reboot of this shit. I've stuck it out even when there were story arcs and tangents that I hated, and the art has slowly degraded.

I thought the ending came out of nowhere. Kinda happy to see it move on from the "lol Ethan so silly xD" crap he's been pulling for 10 years.

But holy crap, that story line came out of nowhere. I know he's had a few more serious storylines, but portraying Ethan as a selfless hero is kinda going against every piece of character development he's had since CAD begun...

There is no way Naylor hasn't taken this test at least once.

Basically, it's a test that gauges how "pure" you are in terms of the Objectivist definition of morality.

Think there should be a police force? NOT PURE ENOUGH

Think there should employee and workplace safety standards? NOT PURE ENOUGH

Think there should be ANY government in ANY amount? SO NOT PURE ENOUGH. READ ATLAS SHRUGGED AND REPENT.

Basically, if you are anything but the most fanatical, self righteous anarchist lunatic; You are not pure enough.

I'd thought I'd share it with you because holy SHIT this test is on the lunatic fringe.

Even worse, how would a private police/mercenary force advertise?

I can think of a simple method:

I had a sarcastic reply ready to go to some of the stupidity in this thread, then while I was trying to pick out a good reaction image I remembered, threads like this happen when I am not draconian enough.

Consider yourselves smacked with the iron fist and don't post stupid things in stupid threads anymore in the future. If you want to sneer about how capitalists are all evil bullies who just want to hurt you and make some money on the side, go to reddit or /pol/.

Thread is bad and the thread creator should feel bad until his ban expires. Other idiots got permas. The next time a thread like this happens I'm just going to ban everyone in it.

Have a nice day!

...the people who defend these people as though they are heroic for being so petty and childish.

For that reason, whenever I see a journal or something to that effect where the artist is complaining about her/his FREELY AVAILABLE PUBLIC WORK being posted on sites they didn't approve of, I make it a point to leave a comment letting them know that they are behaving like a petty tool. In my opinion, these people need to know that not everyone is going to line up to suck their dicks because they've decided to behave like a jackass.

Yes, I understand that they have the right to demand these things. In similar fashion I have the right to call every black person I meet on the street the N word. I'm sure no one would hail me as a champion standing up for my rights if I put that particular right into practice, and I feel that the same attitude should be taken toward these petty little cunts exercising the equally douchie right to harass others for doing something that in no way actually harms or effects them.

That, though, is the part that bothers me the most. The fact that these people are lauded rather than shunned for behaving like jackasses. I've toyed with the idea of trying to start some kind of 'name and shame' campaign, though that's kind of more attention than such whiny little tools deserve. I'd like to present, though, some arguments I've heard and counter arguments to them.

"Blah blah blah they have the right to blah blah."
See my comment about 'they right to use the N word' above. No one is saying that such artists have no right to demand their work be removed, MY argument is that they are cunts for doing so and should be treated as cunts.

"Imageboards profit from stolen artwork."

Even non-profit entities require revenue to run, and there is a legally recognized difference between 'profit' and 'revenue', otherwise there would be no such thing as a non-profit entity. Most imageboards run solely on a volunteer basis; none of the staff are paid for their work, and any revenue generated by advertisements goes directly into maintaining the site, none of it goes into anyone's pocket.
Besides all that, an imageboard hosting your artwork is still providing you with free publicity while you lose absolutely nothing. Many of them will likely even source your gallery so anyone who appreciates the work can find your main page.

>it's no longer about getting exposure but, as you put it, taking up the role of 'gatekeeper'

That 'gatekeeper' mindset has to die, and this generation has to kill it.

The record labels served the role of gatekeepers for the music industry for decades, and nothing seemed poised to stop them from staying in that role for decades to come -- until broadband Internet and hard drives with multiple gigabytes of storage became a reality.

Napster became the first major volley against the old gatekeeper system. When the gatekeepers fought back and stopped Napster, other services took its place. Every time the record labels struck one down, two more would take its place. Nowadays, we have a filesharing protocol that doesn't rely on a centralized service (Bittorrent) and fewer major record labels (from the Big Six pre-Napster to the Big Three nowadays).

The 'gatekeeper' model can't -- and won't -- survive in the long run because the Internet makes it easy for people to circumvent the gate and get into the walled garden that the gatekeepers work so hard to protect.

Gatekeepers try to make themselves the center of the marketplace, decide who can enter the marketplace, and screw over the content creators when it comes to payouts. Enablers, on the other hand, help content creators remain at the center of the marketplace by providing artists with the tools and services to streamline the creation, distribution, promotion, and monetization of creative works.

Artists also have to find ways to branch out into business models that offer a better chance of success than the 'paysite' model. While ClubStripes has this old model in place, it also supplements the paysite with premium goods (such as printed books). 0r0ch1 also hit upon a good idea for income (well, supplemental income, anyway) with his 'Doodles for Donations' streams. Even a 'give it away and pray' model (you offer a product for free and ask for donations from people who liked it) can work in certain circumstances.

Like you said though, it's their right to be dicks about how their content is shared. That's not to say I don't agree with what you are saying, just bringing up your previous point. Really this all makes you realize the thin line between when it's letting a content creator keep some degree of control over what they've made and their fans respecting those wishes, as opposed to one side or the other being self entitled little shits.

Yeah, s'true: either side can act like self-entitled dickheads. Artists, more than sharers, have to learn to reign in their dickish behavior to tolerable levels -- after all, content creators who go all out in their dickery tend to have a poor reputation follow them around for years (see: Jeremy Bernal).

I've seen a pay content provider give a 16 year old's parents a nice in-depth phone call about their son's sexual fetish and online habits.

I've seen that same pay content provider hack into somebody's academic university accounts and threaten to reveal details about them which would result in a several year prison sentence(hence why said provider wasn't prosecuted for committing said FEDERAL OFFENCE).

So yeah, I tend to take the side of sharers over whiny artists.
