THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FOREVER TIME: 6 THE BLACK KNIGHT SATELLITE! (Official Trailer)

Parts 1 through 5 can be found here. Do not expect to comprehend where he is going until INVITATION 5. He poses some interesting possibilities. Enjoy. If you do not have the patience for it. Do not waste your time and begin. It is not for everyone, particularly the narrow minded. For the rest. Happy trails in expanding your horizons.

Repeating. If you do not have the testicular fortitude/brass ovaries to entertain radical thought, do not bother watching this series. It is not for you.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

MYTHOLOGY IS A BEAUTIFUL THING AND I AM V DISAPPOINTED THAT MORE PEOPLE AREN’T INTO IT

I MEAN

THERE’S SO MUCH VARIETY

WHY LIMIT YOURSELF TO POPULAR MYTHOLOGY LIKE VAMPIRES AND DRAGONS WHEN YOU HAVE PERYTONS AND LAMASSU AND AGH

THERE ARE SO MANY COOL CREATURES FROM EVERY CULTURE AND RELIGION AND FANTASY WORLD AND YOU’RE JUST GONNA USE THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN

Walking the Middle Path

I feel like before joining any fandom people would benefit from going through DBT (dialectical behavior therapy–Google it if you are unfamiliar) first. One of the components/skills states:
“Walking the Middle Path is about avoiding extremes. It is seeing the truth in both sides of the story. Two things that seem like opposites can both be true.”

For instance, “I enjoy this character, and I find his/her behavior problematic.” Or “I love this show/character, and I dislike the/his/her storyline.” “I don’t like that pairing, and I know it makes others happy.”

Both sides of the statement can be true, and it doesn’t mean you are less of a fan or even less of a stan if that’s what some would lead you to believe. It does mean you are capable of understanding and accepting more than one point of view. And that is a good and healthy thing.

If more people could understand and practice this, I suspect we would all be able to find more common ground to enjoy our fandom as a more cohesive group rather than tearing each other down for not sharing our particular view.

So Team Starkid, a relatively small theatre company with only about 4 to 5 thousand fans has over 2,000 views on ONE of their SIX livestreams they’re doing this summer. If each of those views is an 11 dollar ticket (sure, some of them are probably the same person since you can watch it for five days) that’s over $20,000. And they have five other shows all ranging in cost from $5 - $11. 

And that’s within the first week these livestreams have been up.

Now, imagine if the rest of the theatre world took note and started livestreaming things? This is a fourth of their whole fandom,  Can you imagine a fourth of the Wicked fandom tuning into a livestream? Or the Newsies fandom? Book of Mormon? 

Like come on Broadway, keep up with the new age. You have so many fans that aren’t in New York or can’t afford a hundred dollar ticket, but they can spend twenty bucks on a livestream. 

When you only show a play in a theatre the amount of money you can make is limited to the number of seats you have (and for Starkid, since they mostly work in small theatres with 12-15 rows, that’s not much) but with a livestream the money you can make is unlimited. USE THIS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. It benefits you and your fans, get with the times.
