Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
Also starting a small business is actually pretty pricey in and of itself?
There’s a reason why stereotypical business types say “you gotta spend money to earn money”
I can understand the sentiment behind this comic but I don’t think it’s being very understanding of other people’s economic situations.
I saw this on my dash earlier and it upset me, and now seeing it with the commentary makes me realize why. If I decided to ‘follow my dreams’ right now, like today, right this second, I’d be homeless, without internet, still without a car, and without any resources in a month’s time. It’s a nice thought, but honestly it’s only something people who are already living comfortably can even bother thinking about. If you are living at or below the poverty line (as I am), there’s literally no way any of this will work, ever.
GUYS LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE DROPPED TO 2.64 MILLION. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. THE CHANCES OF SEASON 3 ARE GETTING DIMMER, AT LEAST ON NBC. DO WHAT YOU CAN. GET MORE VIEWERS. IF YOU MISS AN EPISODE GO TO NBC.COM OR HULU. PLEASE.
Guys, this is SO BAD.The premier episode started with 3.27 million viewers. This means that Hannibal’s ratings has dropped by .81 MILLION VIEWERS. To put this in perspective, Blue Bloods, a very popular show that has the same air slot as Hannibal, averages 11.87 million viewers per episode!
The first season of Hannibal averaged around 4.36 million viewers and it was almost cancelled because of it. Imagine what’s going to happen if 2.64 million becomes the norm; Hannibal will be cancelled.
Hannibal has an amazing cast and we all love seeing their tweets and involvement with tumblr. This is because they’re funny, kind, and care about the fans. However, they are also doing this because they are desperate to get more viewers. They know that the internet is a powerful tool, and they’re reaching out to as many people as they can.
Even if you don’t watch Hannibal, YOU CAN HELP. As stated in the original post, you can go onto Hulu and watch it. But you can also go to to NBC’s website, where you can find »»>FULL EPISODES«« without any kind of subscription.
The best part is that you don’t even have to watch the episodes! If Hannibal isn’t your cup of tea, all you have to do is mute it, hit play, minimize the window, and go about you business.
For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE SAVE OUR SHOW. You’ve seen how passionate we are about this masterpiece on tumblr. We’re invested in these characters, their stories, and everyone involved.
Please. This is huge for the fans who have read the books and for those who haven’t. Just go to the website.
I can’t deal without this.
signal boost. if you are a big blog with thousands of followers please reblog to help out
It’s really easy and takes like no net power to run the show on mute in a diff. It repeats itself, so you can go play some game or watch a different show or write or draw or whatever and forget it’s there. I had it on while I took a three hour nap. Sometimes it pauses for a moment, so just check it and hit replay if it doesn’t do so automatically.
if you missed the new episode of hannibal, sakizuki, or just want to watch it again, you can view it on nbc or hulu. if you are outside the states you can find the google chrome extension to view it here. cheers!
ALO MAKE SURE TO WATCH IT ON THOSE PLATFORMS ANYWAY BECAUSE IT BOOSTS RATINGS, WE HAD A SMALL DROP LAST NIGHT SO LETS GET THOSE NUMBERS BACK UP !!! WE CAN DO IT BABES !!!
GO FORTH AND VIEW!
I have it on mute and it just repeats so
