On The Other Hand

Doing this late at night does actually afford me some measure of uninterrupted peace. It’s nice to be able to sit down and work on it with fewer disturbances.

I’ve been thinking about this whole Pewdiepie vs. T Series thing that’s been going on on YouTube for quite some time. I’ve noticed another wave of mentions for it lately.

The whole premise of the thing is that everyone should subscribe to Pewdiepie in order to keep an “independent creator” the number one channel instead of the “corporate” channel T Series.

It’s funny, in a way, because the whole ordeal is of great benefit to YouTube. It’s pushing subs and views so they only stand to profit from the whole thing.

I’m also amused that suddenly everyone likes Pewdiepie again. It’s been such an odd on again, off again relationship that other creators have with him.

I dunno, I’ve just spent quite a bit of time thinking about it, but don’t have the time to write it all down. At the end of the day, what would happen? If we woke up tomorrow and T Series had more subs than Pewdiepie, well, things will just continue as they always have. I realize it’s a very symbolic thing to a lot of creators, but it won’t stop them from doing what they do any more than the day before.

I’m also having fun watching ERB’s meteoric comeback. I’m glad to see it’s back, but I’m especially glad to see it climbing the trending list. I missed it, personally.

It’s nearly midnight though, so I’ll stop rambling and head to bed. Y’all take care.
