So, I’ve Finally Watched Game of Thrones

Season 3 is nowhere near as strong as Season 2.

Anyway, now I need something new to watch! Recommendations?

fucking this…. just fucking this 

yep, fuckin right.

Things like this frustrate me, when open source, entrepreneurship, non-profits, blogs and a few million other things exist.

Unless you’re a doctor. Then yeah, sure, it’s a vicious cycle.

theawkwardbubbles asked: Hey Kevin. I have a couple questions about making videos. How do you get over the fear of offending a lot of people in a video when talking about a touché subject Or a back lash about the video subject? It seems no matter what someone does it offends or hurts someone.

Ummmmmmmm, you don’t. Honestly, I’m not sure that I’m the best equipped to answer this one. I think when you’re worried about saying something that’s controversial or potentially inflammatory, you need to consider the subject matter.

Some things are open for debate, and people are accustomed to seeing other viewpoints without getting offended. With those, you have free reign.

Other topics, saying nearly anything at all will get people frustrated with you. Personally, when I encounter things like this, I try to backpedal and “qualify” absolutely everything I say. I feel like I’m not the proudest of doing that.

Then finally there are topics that are going to incite trouble regardless. Much of politics and religion fall into this category. Religion especially - so far I’ve wanted to talk about religion, and have never had the guts to discuss it.

Keep in mind when you talk about touchy subjects, you’re not only risking inflammatory comments, but you’re also risking your audience tuning you out indefinitely, because they happen to disagree with you on a particular topic (oh, so and so is gay/liberal/conservative/straight/atheist/fundamentalist/whatever? They’re an idiot. Unsubscribe!)

Best advice I can give is to start off by avoiding risky subjects. Then, when you’re more confident in being able to defend your views (and accept the risks that come with that), start off with topics where the majority of the audience is likely to agree with you (being pro-gay-rights is pretty easy in many places on the internet, for example). Then, once you’re comfortable dealing with minor backlash, you can take the risk and talk about issues you find may be much more controversial. The people who really appreciate your content will appreciate your honesty.

Friendly advice - watch House of Cards soon. I’ll refrain from posting spoilers, but they’ll be turning up VERY quickly.
