Well, it’s been at least two years since my last post. I’ve mostly been busy with my offline life, and I haven’t really been mustering up the motivation to continue what was mostly just a hobby. So, after those two years I’ve decided to… beat a dead horse… Okay, so maybe it’s not a dead horse. For some reason, people just keep choosing to resurrect this particular horse only to beat to death again. So, I figured I might as well throw my own 2 cents in.
It’s no secret that a lot of people on the internet hate Felix Kjellburg (better known to us denizens on the internet as PewDiePie). He’s vulgar, he screams a lot, he tends to do stupid things when playing, and the list goes on. Those who’ve watched him and hated him will go out of their way to comment on how they hate him. Those who haven’t watched him and hate him (by some strange line of logic) will go out of their way to comment on how they hate him. Hell, there’s even an anti-PewDiePie tumblr! (I’m not gonna provide a link, and I politely ask that you don’t even search it up. I don’t want to give them any traffic. Explanation why later.)
And yet, he’s landed as the most subscribed channel now (discounting YouTube’s own channels), weighing at over 26 million subscribers (that’s 6 zeroes in case you’re wondering). Even Notch is a fan! He’s held multiple charities for causes from kids with cancer, to providing drinking water, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars (which I will provide a link to. Come on, it’s charity. I’m sure that time spent on that is worth more than when it’s spent on hating him). He’s the happy owner of two pugs, Maya and most recently Edgar. He has a girlfriend by the name of Marzia, who does fashion related videos, make-up tutorials, and so on; and they have a loving relationship that puts many internet romances I’ve seen to shame (and I haven’t seen many, so I guess that hardly counts for anything). He may be vulgar, loud, obscene, and less than genius, but there is no doubting that he’s a good person, and he loves what he does (which is more than what I can say for most people).
