I just deleted my YouTube account...
Anytime big advertisers get involved, it inevitably ruins everything.

People are TIRED of “products”...

People don’t want “products” anymore.

She's following her principles to their logical conclusion and acting on them. I'm proud of her for that.

It's easy enough to make another channel if you change your mind anyway.

Oh, I know that. It's still a shame. Her channel was unique.

Yep. Trix is endlessly inventive though. She knows when it's time to let go of the old and do something new. ThumbsUp
Thanks GG, I appreciate your sentiments!

At one time I thought perhaps I would enjoy making videos (featuring myself) and I gave it a try...

Quickly realized it was just not something I enjoyed and especially not something I’d want to be doing regularly.

Plus... there’s something about having your image on these social media platforms that just creeps me the hell out. I keep thinking about the old belief that the camera steals your soul.

I am glad I took myself out of their system, and I just feel like shit’s about to get weird for the people who genuinely thought their videos would be on YouTube for like 100 years...

The whole digital progression will be like the comparison between phonographs and MP3 players by then, only with tech and concepts that are totally beyond our understanding at this time. Or, it'll be the stone ages again due to natural events (CME/EMP, etc). One or the other.

What will have promise of longevity is the WRITTEN WORD. So go ahead and make your videos, but TRANSCRIBE that material and have physical copies of it. That is absolutely the only way to ensure that it might survive.

This digital material is subject to censorship at the mere click of a button due to algorithms which look for certain words and then "disappear" your content forever if they're found... none of it is safe. If people depend on the idea that the internet in its current form (and the digital materials therein) will stand the test of time, they will be in even more danger of being lost to time than their ancestors who were featured in physical photos and newspaper clippings.

Do not depend on this digital platform to stand the test of time... it's naive and it's a dangerous belief if you ACTUALLY want to be remembered.

As much as they're dumbing down society these days, it'll be a miracle if anybody is even smart enough to read by then anyway. But as always there will still be some who are apart from the herd and are still intelligent.

The secret to hard copies is physical distribution. Don't keep it all in one place and don't hoard it for yourself. If you can get it into book form, mail it out to select places which accept random books and display them or keep them for record. There are sites which list these "open libraries"... they're all over the world. Distribute, distribute, distribute.

Ironically, phonographs made a comeback and crushed the original digital medium (compact disc).

Millions of records in circulation. Fifty year old records still being played.

And for exactly the reason you stated. People want to hold them in their hands. Admire the cover art and read the liner notes. Take a break between sides, get up and turn the record over.

Fuck Yeah
I guess you can't leave anymore spicy comments on Zane and other people you stalk Youtubes.
Hands Up!  Panties Down!
LOL, that's just it, Dark Dick...

I post my comments about them on MY website.
I'm old enough to have seen this show before. Back in the 80's/90's we had Al Gores annoying wife Tipper go on a one woman crusade to put warning stickers on all music. What prompted this? She heard her 11 year old listening to a PRINCE song, which had a reference to masturbation! Ugh. We also had to deal with other moral panics drummed up by Evangelicals. This country loves a good moral panic. I fucking loved those Elliot Rodger videos, subversive goodness! They really seem to be ramping things up with banning across all social media.
Tipper Gore is a LGBT activist, so it's hypocritical of her to try to censor expressions of sexuality.

In general, the left succeeded in driving evangelicals from the public square only to replace them with exactly the same kind of authoritarian moralizing. Irony.
You don't know what you're missing Trix.

Hands Up!  Panties Down!
LOL :)

Damn straight! I noticed that shit happening roughly around 2010-ish.
People, just everyday nobody-types, started becoming "brands".
I knew then that the end was near.
