Fans and fandom

hey listen, real talk, i know it’s hard to hear, but being a fan of somebody or something doesn’t entitle you to shit.

The exchange is as follows: you hand over money and hopefully get some entertainment out of it. That’s it. You don’t own shit, you don’t get to dictate shit, basically nobody cares about what you think the moment you swiped that credit card.

Sure, your money is a powerful instrument. You can kickstart, campaign, boycott and demand all you want, but let’s not kid ourselves, you can’t coordinate that shit enough to make an impact, it’s like herding cats.

Your only option is to create something, then you get to be in charge I guess.
