    My thoughts on Fyre Festival cross between "oh man I do feel bad for the few people who were saving up and decided THIS was the thing to splurge on," thinking I would have even enjoyed being in the bahamas even under those circumstances and the same sort of schadenfreude at the rich douchey types who got their noses snubbed everyone else has

    As someone who was personally at dashcon itself (as an artist/creator), fyre festival made me both hurt and laugh inside. But dashcon was nowhere NEAR as bad as that festival omg

    I'm sorry, but Kim Kardashian has made her name specifically from her body and seeking attention by any means necessary. If she gets called out for her body not looking like the bullshit, airbrushed version people have come to know, I for one won't feel sorry for her.

    Kardashians profit off of less educated individuals suckered into buying their products: "more power to them."


    Well off individuals have their money stolen from them via falsely advertised event: "you're a fucking idiot and deserve that."


    I feel as though those two are just a tad contradictory.

    Dashcon was indeed arranged by a few figures in the Superwholock fandom, though I am not entirely sure what Superwholock was. Apparently, they thought that if they could run a blog, they could run a convention. Things went downhill fast.

    So if you're rich and spending money on a festival like that you're a douchebag, and it's okay you're getting ripped off? Disappointing and arrogant point of view I wasn't expecting on RT.

      Did you listen to their whole conversation? They talked about in general the people who most likely went to that specific event and who the event was aimed for. They even said that they felt bad for the people but maybe look into events before blindly throwing money at something for a good time.


      I do get the whole, we shouldn't make assumptions of people just cause of outward appearances. However just speaking in vague terms about an event as long as you understand it's not an actual blanket statement that can't change, then yeah I'd say even if I had heard about it and could easily afford to go I wouldn't have cause it's not my scene. That's what the group was saying (at least that's how I interpreted it from their conversation), but if you did go just to hang out with some cool people and have a good time then yeah it sucks it didn't turn out well.


      And with you saying “Disappointing and arrogant point of view I wasn't expecting on RT” aren't you doing what your complaining about they are doing to the festival people with giving a blanket statement about an entire company? I do understand what you meant and get that its awesome to hold a person and or company to such high standards but to say you can't give a general view and then maybe have a slightly different specific view on the same topic is wrong... that's just putting yourself into a corner of thought for no reason. Keep thinking, expanding on idea's and taking in information to form your opinions on things. Nothing ever stands still, our thinking like everything else should always be evolving.


      Sorry I went a bit overboard with the word spam, best of luck to ya.

      @Jwake I wasn't talking about the entire company, just the sentiment of the conversation. People who went were either privileged douchebags or idiots who shouldn't have spent that much money. As if people who have the money can't spend their money the way they want. When dashcon happened everybody was talking about how it was criminal how they ripped off people who saved up to go there, now it's good they got what they deserved, just because it was expensive... Regardless if there might have been people there who had to spend the same percentage of their income as the Dashcon people. As if they deserved it because they were attending an event ordinary can't attend... It's not any different than wanting to see exclusive cars getting destroyed because you can't have one.


      And I'm not saying we need to feel sorry too much, but the schadenfreude here is not justified in my opinion. But apparently you can't have any criticism on things like this, but I'm glad you at least responded in stead of simply downvoting an opinion that doesn't fit the fandom.

      They specifically said in that same conversation "I'm sure it wasn't everybody, and I'm sure most people there just went to have a good time and it sucks that it didn't work out the way they were expecting." The people they were calling dumb were people like the kid that went BANKRUPT trying to get there. They were saying that it's dumb to spend your money on something you can't afford. You should really go back and listen again.

      @Quizzical_Quark I do agree we' should be able to have reasonable conversations as people whether we agree on a topic or not to be able to share our points of view without getting ridiculed for a difference of opinion of the majority. I actually don't think our opinion of the situation was that different just our outlook of it and that's perfectly fine.

      but booking/renting a private jet costs as low as 25,000 dollars if you don't already own one. that's not the kind of money average people have to drop on an event like this.

    It's interesting to listen to, but basically that same conversation already happened on the last RT Podcast or the one before...

    It kinda feels like a wasted opportunity that they didn't continue the types of conversations they had on the public episode, or answer a submitted question.

    Just a constructive criticism from a fan :)

      Absolutely agree, I don't think that commentary on these kinds of things is worth dedicating the post show to. I'd much rather listen to a continued conversation of some sorts, especially when the main show was as good as this last one was.

    I thought Pam, Dwight and Jim were strong enough characters that the office could have continued to be great beyond Carell's departure. But the show decided they should distance themselves from those characters and focus on Andy, who is a garbage character, and their decision to raise him to manager was atrocious. The character was so bad that I now have an intense hatred for Ed Helms that I'm pretty sure he probably doesn't deserve.

    I absolutely loved the final two episodes of the series though. Just great.
