I will never say that I’m not a fan of Grace or that I don’t support her career or endeavors, but I’m definitely not nearly as impressed or invested as I used to be. The change of the new channel brought a drastic change in content and above all, quality of that content. Bottom line: I don’t feel that obligated to watch Grace’s videos as much because she for some reason does not feel that obligated to make them. I thought that even cutting back to 3 days a week would make it easier for her, but it’s turned into just another cop-out to escape any kind of orginality or effort in being creative. Think about it, she only really has 1 day of the week now (wednesday) that allows her to just be herself and post a video of actual substance (should she even choose to do so).
The week of it’s Grace breakdown (as I see it)
Monday: Awkward and unoriginal podcast day, where we take a project from another medium (itunes), dress it up, and regurgitate it on the channel - usually accompanied by a youtuber game that we have literally seen by every youtuber on every channel in the free fucking world.
Wednesday: Watch me show you my stuff in a haul video/review a Taylor Swift song/ Buy my merchandise day. It’s basically her showing us shit that she has bought, or shit that she wants US to buy.
and finally, Friday: aka “the life and times of me and my boyfriend” day. Ya know, the day where she takes her travel cam to show you how many times her and chester are in a cab or an airplane together. Because let’s face it, that’s what a comedy channel is all about…getting you excited about a possible relationship as so you don’t pay attention to the fact that this isn’t a comedy channel anymore.
This may come across harsh, but I’ve been sitting on these thoughts for a LONG time. It’s sad and disappointing that now, with total creative control over her content that THIS is the direction she has chosen to go in. I remember when I used to refer to Grace as a comedian, but now, she really is just another youtuber.
Don’t bother filling up my inbox with hate, because I won’t respond to any of it. If you have something intelligent to say, I’m all ears and totally open to an ADULT discussion about this. I’m interested to hear what some of the older fans have to say regarding the topic, as they can probably remember what it all USED to be like, and how ridiculous it has come to be in such a short amount of time.
explanation for my absence.
I didn’t like Chester to begin with, just wasn’t into his videos and I didn’t really have anything that made me want to like him. I don’t like Grester as a pair (like they don’t really go together in my head) but if he makes her happy then that’s good.
That really makes me mad because any time someone disagrees with something she does, they get hate
You’re allowed to rant :) I agree with you.
Ur TOT4LLY rite
It really kind of sucks. I used to love coming on tumblr to participate in the fandom…I’m sorry you’re feeling the same. I guess with the rush of new fans, a lot of jackasses and immature 13 year olds entered the fandom. They’ll grow up soon, hopefully.
I haven’t made a gif in over six months so idk what you’re talking about with this “as soon as she needs gifs” thing. I never volunteered to make them for her, I made them for myself. The last post that had anything to do with Grace simply was a reblog stating that I agreed I liked it when Grace kept her relationship private.
Yes. It was splendid
is this david i s2g
GUYS THIS IS MY FIRST TRUE PIECE OF ANON HATE! I’M FINALLY FAMOUS, IT’S ABOUT TIME
1) if you don’t like me, get off my blog
2) I can have opinions you don’t like
3) I don’t like Chester and I’m allowed to say that I don’t like him and her paired together.
4) The only bad thing about Chester that I’ve posted on my blog is that confession that said the person didn’t like Grace’s relationship being public. I agree with that, therefore I have a right to reblog it.
5) Take your cute anon messages and shove them up your ass. You’re complaining about my negativity (which is true, I’m a negative person, I’ll own up to that) yet here you are in my ask sending me pretty much hate and telling me that nobody needs me.
6) I don’t think that this is a great fandom anymore. It was great before shipping and drama. Now it’s good at best.
7) Finally, I will not regret anything
