im laughing why is this even buried deep inside windows programming

GUYS GO DO THE THING.
WHY IS THIS EVEN HERE?!

Can’t forget about flourish.mid and town.mid

that was a pleasant surprise

Oh my god what.

at first i thought it was music from an RPG game and I was like what is this even doing in my computer and then i kept listening and i- - -

fun fact: this is ‘buried’ inside in windows programming because they wanted a stock MIDI or .mid file present in windows for troubleshooting purposes, because no other files with the .mid extension were needed. back in 2001 or so when the ‘onestop’ file was first introduced on windows XP, viruses containing .mid files were commonly used to overwrite objects in the windows directory, and in operating systems prior, were very successful at destroying data due to the fact it was a kind of file windows was not built to recognize right off the bat. having that one stock .mid file was so windows computers could recognize the file without making a customer have to install a driver to do so. as to why its so funky, the world may never know

So I found this comment shazams

I’ll be honest… that is pretty disrespectful. Or maybe not that. Maybe it’s just straight up ignorance. 80 isn’t even half of what Nova pays me for a 1-2 minute animation.

It’s because of stuff like THIS  that way too many artists are under paid and devalue their work. Because so many people don’t understand the amount of work and time that goes into any art piece. Whether it’s animation or illustration.

I’ll do the math for you so you know why this kinda ticks me off. On average I spend about 30-40 hours for a 1-2 minute animation. Now this video is about 11.5 minutes long so I would most likely spend about 345 hours on it if not more. That would be about 14 days straight if I work with no sleep, breaks, eating, etc. Just working non stop. Now if I only made 80 dollars from this and worked 345 hours I would be making about 0.23 for every hour that I worked.

0.23

I’ll be getting your pocket change for an hours worth of work.

This is the problem many artists are faced with. And it is extremely sad and frustrating.
