Reguarding the prequel trilogy, another reason why I believe it ended up being as bad as it is, is due to George Lucas' creative control, and how he's, at this point in time, considered a legend. A god filmmaker who can do no wrong.

When Lucas was working on the original trilogy, it wasn't just him that worked on it, but a whole team that worked alongside him. For that, his crew was not afraid to give Lucas some constructive criticism, and tell him what they think would work and what they think wouldn't. That type of peer review is how the original trilogy ended up being as good as it is.

Fast-forward 16 years after Return of the Jedi came out, and Lucas was mostly credited as the mastermind behind Star Wars... and when the prequel trilogy was in development, he worked with a much younger crew. Because they weren't with him in the original trilogy, his crew saw Lucas as this legendary filmmaker, and for that, they wouldn't give him any constructive criticism, because when you're on top of the world like he is, you just simply can't question his genius. That's where we ended up with Jar-Jar, and the bad writing, because everything was being done by George Lucas. It wasn't peer reviewed like the original trilogy is, and that's why I think the prequel trilogy ended up being as awful as it is.

anyone remember the youtube poop trend from 2007? it's still a thing, only not as popular as it used to be.

I saw really funny YTP the other day regarding the DaddyoFive drama. It was made back in December but given the recent stuff going on with DaddyoFive it made the rounds again.

Let's also not forget the Angry Video Game Nerd. I may not think very highly of AVGN nowadays, but his older videos brought in some of the best memories I've had from Youtube's early days.

YouTube of the late-2000's is so different compared to today. Vlogging hadn't really taken over and the standards of quality were so much different. I miss the old days of watching the wash-out's of society filming themselves on a crappy webcam making fun of other YouTuber's. YT drama back then was outright amazing, it would always deliver day after day.

one thing i do miss from avgn is when mike matei was behind costume and nothing more. mike is great at freehand artwork, but i can't believe he'd set that aside for game livestreaming and cracking terrible jokes.

as for youtube itself, i really wish it didn't get one unnecessary update after another. the constant changes in layouts have caused many users to get upset about how it changed the way they wanted to make their videos, and supposedly their oldest videos got lowered in video quality after certain updates were made.

one last thing i'd like to cover is how irritating users such as raywilliamjohnson, shane dawson and ijustine rose to stardom. none of them are funny.

one user that wasn't as popular that i walked into was ultraneko, this girl posing as a "gamergirl", posting scripted game reviews, only to be found out as a fake among her viewers and fans. she did get to interview certain people like david hayter (the voice of solid snake) and visit E3, but much to the dismay of her being found out as an actress rather than the gamergirl she labeled herself as, she vanished from youtube shortly after. i don't find it the least bit sad, really. her commentary on this particular video didn't really keep me entertained. "now loading? really?"

Of definitely. I miss being able to personalize your channel like you were once able too. The new layout lacks the flair, creativity and personal touch that older versions had.

WWF's Attitude era. It was a wonderful era, but then the Universe era happened and everything went kaput.


Oh, well. At least there's the DVDs.
