dude is a gender neutral term if you think differently you are wrong
This picture perfectly describes their friendship
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.
Pretty much how i feel too.
I wouldn’t phrase it as harshly, but yes.
This hurt me to read.
I love Grace, and I am ridiculously proud of her and her success with branching out of youtube. I enjoy her videos but they really are not what they use to be to me either, but I don’t think it is because she doesn’t care about the content. I think she is growing up and evolving as this is what happens with age. She has so much going on right now that she may just not know how to balance it all yet. Maybe with time. But I think that is what is happening to a lot of our fandom too. We are growing up. And I do enjoy seeing her happiness with Chester, but I wish they would do more than stare into the camera.
Somebody has been doing some remodeling…
Looks like the “it’sGrace” channel is now the “Grace Helbig" channel.
Just going to leave this here.
Daily Grace talks about summer flings for Sexy Friday.
she sat in the water for like an hour, just staring at the water peacefully
An angel, honestly.
