someday i’ll do a comic that’s not cynical and dumb i believe it
on 15 May 2014 at 18:07:18 MDT
No you won't.
on 15 May 2014 at 18:17:03 MDT
So you unfollowed me a commented this, likely because you're buttmad over the pet/master disagreement on FD_2.
You sure showed me.

That whole thing was a laugh. I'll PM you.
on 16 May 2014 at 01:09:43 MDT
Huh? Unfollowed you where? I just saw this on the index O_o
I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to be mad about?
on 16 May 2014 at 08:31:20 MDT
You just saw this in the index and made a comment like that?
on 16 May 2014 at 14:06:52 MDT
Yeah, like "No you won't" because the fandom will always give you reasons to make more comics like this. Which I enjoy. I've commented on them before.
So I'm confused; I don't remember any comment you made on the thread? Directed at me? Unfollowed you where?

I SPENT MY RENT MONEY ON SOMETHING STUPID EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS!
on 15 May 2014 at 18:15:29 MDT
i guess in the case where making a living is a struggle and welfare does not hold out but yeah i totally get where you're coming from. this gets irritating
on 15 May 2014 at 18:21:38 MDT
I feel terrible doing this, but knowing that psychologists found the more we see a word the more meaningless it is to us is why I refer 'emergency' commissions as 'the baked beans fund'. The money I received two years ago -the only time I had to do the baked beans fund- was enough to not spiral endlessly into debt, and also buy baked beans. Ohhh Yeaaaaah~
on 15 May 2014 at 18:24:03 MDT
Oh, this is certainly not about asking for emergency stuff in general. This is about people who abuse the word 'emergency' when needing money for things they knew were coming. Emergency, to me, is something out of total left field and sudden.
on 17 May 2014 at 09:11:08 MDT
The word itself is telling of its nature! Emergence, to EMERGE as if from beyond some vast and vile threshold unbidden. At least in the human brain, anything that can be described as emerging is generally a bad thing.
Your heating bill does not emerge. It punctuates, or it drops, or if you're like me it piles up until you can create the Leaning Tower of Postage, but it does not emerge.
on 15 May 2014 at 18:31:37 MDT
egad, it annoys me to no bounds when that happens. This one artist will beg for emergency commissions literally every two weeks because he's starving and his rent is a month late etc etc... and then he buys a fursuit.

The fandom is going to have to become less cynical and dumb first.
on 15 May 2014 at 18:39:36 MDT
I think it could do with some more cynicism to be frank. It's people being optimistic and gullible that allows people like this to keep doing what they're doing.
on 15 May 2014 at 18:57:05 MDT
You know, you DO have a point.
I still stand by my "dumbness" assessment though.
on 17 May 2014 at 09:14:09 MDT
Maybe we can settle somewhere around the maxim, Be a good dude don't be a sucker?
And maybe a paper on identifying prevalent logical fallacies in the fandom that keep shit like this alive.
on 17 May 2014 at 15:37:34 MDT
I would enjoy seeing a furry comic about logical fallacies actually. Perhaps we could call it Ad Furminem.
on 15 May 2014 at 18:52:57 MDT
Why should only banksters can get away with perpetual crises? ;P
on 15 May 2014 at 19:16:17 MDT
I've also seen a lot of EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS where the person ends up not even doing the artwork. Y'know, since they're busy with the emergency. Forever.
on 15 May 2014 at 19:17:44 MDT
and saying 'donations' wouldn't be as fruitful i guess
on 15 May 2014 at 19:43:15 MDT
Guy I knew had an emergency three months in a row, kept on taking donations to help him make ends meet. Always had an inordinately high amount of art to post up that same month. I'm not one to point fingers or make assumptions but man...
on 15 May 2014 at 20:04:23 MDT
Noo but I love your cynical comics don't ever change
on 15 May 2014 at 20:18:30 MDT
Resist menstruation joke... resist menstruation joke.... mmmeeerrrrRRRGGHHHHAAAAA sets self on fire and dives out the window
on 15 May 2014 at 20:23:08 MDT
frame this and put it in the Met. Pure masterpiece
on 16 May 2014 at 02:34:56 MDT
THIS, and hey it's real cool when people do this and then say "oh wait, emergency over! i'm fine and don't actually need your money. but i'm keeping it".
on 16 May 2014 at 19:57:24 MDT
ALLLLL OF THIS christ on a cracker
on 16 May 2014 at 03:01:40 MDT
I imagine that some people's lives really are one continuous emergency: no order, no control, like a failed state. But I always feel queasy when I see panicky offers of underpriced furry sketch commissions, used like a universal get-out-of-jail card. Who's exploiting whom in that transaction?
on 16 May 2014 at 09:55:02 MDT
But I love your cynical snarky comics about the fandom. They're witty, well rendered and so entertaining. I beg of you! MORE MORE!
on 16 May 2014 at 10:57:40 MDT
Cynical is fine, mostly because good lord we need to hear this sort of thing more often.
on 17 May 2014 at 00:01:40 MDT
I don't get it with some artists, some have EMERGENCY SKETCHES periodically while that shit is like once a month or every other month for others. On top of this, I'm also getting skeptical on those types of things.

The Furry Who Cried 'Emergency'
on 17 May 2014 at 01:58:19 MDT
'oh no, rent's due! just like every month! EMERGENCY EMERGENCY!!!!!!!!!'
or 'oh no, tuition's due, but i just bought a fursuit! EMERGENCY!!!'
but the best is 'oh no, i want this item that is completely nonessential and 100% a luxury item but i don't have enough money, EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS!!!'
it's gotten to the point where everyone yells emergency so much that i don't try and get 'emergency commissions' even when it really is an emergency.
on 17 May 2014 at 08:30:41 MDT
Just spent 200 dollars on fridge repairs. Didn't bat an eye. No emergency here.
Yay for financial responsibility!

What is that is that a new video game is it on steam I'ma buy it
on 17 May 2014 at 16:43:17 MDT
Its called a full time job that then means you can't have any fun due to working so much ._.
on 17 May 2014 at 17:05:10 MDT
Alas! That seems to be the choice most of us face. It's either money without the free time to enjoy it, or free time without the money to do anything in it.
on 17 May 2014 at 18:24:33 MDT
Free time and a social life, but broke as piss, or financially stable and FOREVER ALONE. :C

on 17 May 2014 at 22:51:29 MDT
Its not like the cheat code works anyways. Its like, you have to enter it well over a million times to even have a slight chance of clearing...

Eeeeeeeeeemuuuuurrrrrrrrrr........ into infinity
on 17 May 2014 at 17:31:54 MDT
thank you for this holy shit
on 17 May 2014 at 19:54:56 MDT
Guys I need help because I can't make rent. There's nothing I could have done to avoid this. Please ignore that $200 fetish commission in my recent uploads.
on 20 May 2014 at 19:37:42 MDT
This reminds me of a story long ago..

I work in the billing department for a communications utility company (TV/internet/phone) we always get so many people calling in desperately tring to avoid being disconnected after Christmas. I always want to say to these people, "What they should do with Christmas is hold it on the same day every year so people could plan for it and not be ambushed by the sudden expendatures."
