I Love Cats and Dick Jokes As Much As The Next Guy

…but this is actually why I love the internet, and the people on it. The premise here is simple, smart and optimistic. In a nutshell, don’t be a dickhead to the people who like you. In all likelihood they’ll be nice back, especially if you also frame the interaction as an experiment in content production and distribution. Everybody who deserves to win gets to win, and nobody who doesn’t doesn’t. The whole thing is humane, and hurray.
I really hope people keep buying it a lot, so I can have shitloads of money, but at this point I think we can safely say that the experiment really worked. If anybody stole it, it wasn’t many of you. Pretty much everybody bought it. And so now we all get to know that about people and stuff. I’m really glad I put this out here this way and I’ll certainly do it again. If the trend continues with sales on this video, my goal is that i can reach the point where when I sell anything, be it videos, CDs or tickets to my tours, I’ll do it here and I’ll continue to follow the model of keeping my price as far down as possible, not overmarketing to you, keeping as few people between you and me as possible in the transaction.
(Of course i reserve the right to go back on all of this and sign a massive deal with a company that pays me fat coin and charges you straight up the ass.). (This is you: yes Louie. And we’ll all enjoy torrenting that content. You fat sweaty dolt).
