So for reasons that Grace is too classy to complain about, she’s no longer going to be uploading to the Daily Grace YouTube channel. A channel that, it turns out, she never owned and, in fact, all of the content that she produced there over the last three years is also not owned by her.
Not owning your content is a terrible (though not unusual) thing…it means that the company who does own your content can hold your stuff hostage and do anything they want with it. They can make you do things you don’t want to do. I’m not saying this is what My Damn Channel was doing to Grace, but I am saying I do COMPLETELY understand Grace not wanting to be part of that anymore.
So she’s moving on, but My Damn Channel chose to not allow her to move on with the content and channel that she has built over the last three years.
So…MDC will be uploading old “Classic Grace” videos on the “Daily Grace” channel (first ever YouTube re-runs) and Grace will be starting her YouTube life over at youtube.com/itsgrace.
You should subscribe to her there, because the future is bright…but she just went from 2.5 million subscribers to 100,000, and that can be a little disheartening.
SIGNAL BOOST. I think this might be a very unprecedented event… but kind of an amazing opportunity to come together as a YouTube community to show support to one of the hardest working and most genuinely caring people on YouTube. If you’re reading this, subscribe, and reblog. She’d never ask any of us to help spread the word, so let’s do it for her.
this is nuts, but Grace is really cool, so if you good content in your sub boxes - subscribe!
6. “Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” —Harper Lee, “To Kill A Mockingbird”
Here we have the noble but insufferable Atticus Finch, taking a break from defending a black man terrorized by the white community to inform us that one bird is perfectly OK to slaughter, but not another one. It’s the most breathtaking display of hypocrisy since they printed “I think that I shall never see/A poem lovely as a tree” on paper.
"The problem with dating people," she says, "is that you have to go a few months before you can even say to them, ‘Look, if we’re going to do this, I need you to watch at least seasons two through five of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.’ And then that’s a lot of TV, you know? I can do a condensed version, but it’s still a lot of episodes to plow through. And then you push through all that, and everything’s good, but a little while later, what happens is: you break up. So you wind up standing at a party like this, looking across the room at three different perfectly attractive and charming men, none of whom have seen so much as a single episode of Buffy, and you’re like … I just don’t have it in me to go through this again.
"That isn’t a metaphor," she says, "for, like, developing intimacy with each other. This is literally a Buffy-specific problem for me."
