RIP Angry Grandpa

I was rather shocked to read today about the death of a well known, and clearly well loved YouTube celebrity, Charles Green, better known as Angry Grandpa. This one kind of hit me hard – I followed the show passively, but had been aware of it and the family, for quite a while, checking out …

Vine To Make A Return? Dear God, No!

My buddy Prince Watercress linked me to an engadget¬†article yesterday discussing how Vine founder Dom Hofmann seems to have teased a “Vine 2.0” if you will – he tweeted just an image in the classic Vine colors that showed “V2.” and.. that’s it. v2 pic.twitter.com/JkzE1CULSV — dom hofmann (@dhof) December 6, 2017 This comes, of …

Looks Like It’s Over For Vidme

With YouTube being in the state it is currently (something I’m long overdue for addressing) many video creators online have been looking for an alternative, and for the past few months it looked like a certain little website known as Vidme would be a good alternative – it looked to work about as well as …

A Good Example Of People Missing The Point Entirely

In my previous article, where I discussed how a YouTuber got a play button award with a racist phrase written on it, the subject of the video the content creator had made, and thus the subject of my article itself, was the fact of how and why he could get the item with the inscription …

YouTube Automation, Chinese Factories, And A Racist Play Button

How Terrible Fans Ruined Space For Me

Ever since I was a child, I absolute adored space, both the idea of the place, the planets, moons, stars, and other things out there, and the exploration of it – rockets, missiles, men on the Moon, I couldn’t get enough of it! I’ve been learning what I can about these subjects for literally as …

We Have Burnout – Hostility In The Space And Rocketry Online Community

Reading comment after comment on the SpaceX front has certainly been a chore, having to see them mentioned in every single space related subject ever is itself quite annoying, …

Let’s Look At The Comments On A SpaceX Facebook Post

In keeping with my desire to be “that guy” addressing the cult like nature of SpaceX fans, I thought today would be a good day to look at comments on a SpaceX post on Facebook today regarding (as of the time of this writing) an update Elon Musk will provide regarding the Interplanetary Transport System; …

The One Big Problem In Using A YouTube Video As An Article Subject

As anyone who follows this site will notice, many of the article subjects on this site are videos that are usually, if not pretty much always hosted on YouTube. This isn’t normally a problem, and the worst I’ve had before is maybe a one-off video being deleted, or something that isn’t allowed to be embedded …
