So up until this point I'd been using an old version of Skype. No need to update, the version I had worked fine.
...then it stopped working. OK, time to update. Turns out the latest version has these big-ass annoying ads all over it, and to remove them you have to pay a subscription fee.
I did a little searching for the last version that did not have ads, and will install it ASAP. In the meantime, I found this on Skype's website:
"While on a 1:1 audio call, users will see content that could spark additional topics of conversation that are relevant to Skype users and highlight unique and local brand experiences. So, you should think of Conversation Ads as a way for Skype to generate fun interactivity between your circle of friends and family and the brands you care about"
...
The stench of cynical B.S. coming off of that statement is enough to strip paint. "Fun interactivity?" Give me a break.

By these standards, getting mauled by a pissed-off alligator is a "resonant cultural experience".

*Edit* I've found a way to block the ads. Blurg.

Thanks so much man!
  I've been trying to figure out what I know that I could make a tutorial out of. It's tough! But I recently did some experimenting with Bandicam and Audacity, and have the ability to make some basic vids now.
..
You should make gumroad tuts about those TF2 pieces you've been doing. People friggin love fan art, you'd get rich! lol.

While that's true, gunroad appeals to a totally different demographic than the usual fans of video games. Gumroad is about the art and technique. I'd make one about the way I paint, but I really don't have much to offer, I'd just be showing more of the same. There are plenty of people who are more qualified to teach. Like you, for example.
