When you make eye contact with someone and you didn’t mean to and then you can’t stop glancing back and everything is uncomfortable

Umm I recorded all clips (I think?) because why not?
I don’t know if I’m ok with his voice or not.
"Florida Man, Scully. It’s all right here," Mulder slaps a stack of newspapers with his knuckles. He leans over her where she sits and looks at her seriously.
"Mulder, you can’t be serious. This is clearly just a series of similar incidents. The only thing they have in common is they’re all based in Florida."
Mulder shakes his head, snorting. “You mean to tell me that there are multiple men in Florida performing the same bizarre crimes? That the man who tried to rob the brother’s CVS with a water nozzle is a different person from the one who killed their husband with a squirrel?”
She looks at him incredulously. “Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying.”
"Why don’t you believe, Scully? Why can’t you believe for once that maybe — just maybe — the unexplained and fantastical has a place in our criminal investigations."
"I think you want to believe so badly that no state can be as terrifying as Florida that you’ve constructed this omnipresent figure to assuage your anxieties."
He shakes his head once more, arms akimbo. “I’m telling you, Scully. There’s something strange about this case and we’re going to figure it out.”
My new favorite shirt aw yesssss
"And then to treat my nation like we don’t know how to fight. We, the Lakota, who are responsible [for being] the first nation to ever militarily defeat the United States of America on the field of battle, and "Lawrence of the Plains” has to teach us how to fight??”

ahh yes! i’ve been waiting months to watch this
I’ve said this a hundred times. Other artists have said this. People who aren’t even artists but care about others being able to support themselves from their work have said this. This is my job where I make my full time living. My prices are the way they are for a reason. And even if it weren’t my full time job I am performing a specialized skill producing luxury goods that takes time, money, and years to perfect. I deserve to be compensated for that work even if the money doesn’t go to basic survival necessities.
My products may be out of your price range, which is okay. That just means you aren’t my target market. But that doesn’t mean they are overpriced. And that doesn’t make it okay to walk around telling others what they should charge. There are a hundred resources on why artists price the way they do out there, please read the following and take some time to educate yourself:
- This is a “simple” forumla for pricing. It does not include any specifics and simply includes “expenses” as a lump category.
- Here is a post from Magweno which does a good job of summing up all the “hidden” costs in crafting. It also includes a discussion on whether the perceived value of art should be taken into consideration. It doesn’t even take into account sales, self employment, or income taxes. 15% of my income alone goes to self employment tax. 15-30% (depending on how much I made that year) will go to income tax.
- Another blog post from Mill Girl who writes further on what goes into pricing, arts and crafts as a luxury item, what you support when you purchase handmade, and who/what you harm when you devalue handmade.
- A tumblr post which highlights the pitfalls of people who undervalue art and their negative impact on the entire art community. This includes both artists undervaluing themselves and clients undervaluing artists.
- Here’s an article on pricing as a freelancer and industry standards. For the record I consider myself under the category “Someone with a few years of experience and a good portfolio: $50 - $85+/hr.” I can promise I am charging nowhere near $50 an hour, and close to $25 since I supplement my income with “passive income” from pattern sales.
And that is just a few of the resources out there available. I sincerely hope you will read them and stop spreading negative attitudes on pricing.
an AMAZING post about pricing art with a ton of resources!
So the dude I went out with (he said he’s not really comfortable with feminine pronouns so it’s cleared up now) but we have a ton in common and he’s pretty cool and we hanged out for like the whole day and he kissed me on my cheek before he left and???????
