@Youtube sends me a Dear John letter, my videos are moving shortly

What happened, YouTube? I thought we were friends. Although I guess if I’d been paying attention, I’d have realized that this was not true a long time ago.

Here on CreativeJamie.com, you will see advertisements. These ads are provided by my partnership with WordPress, who also manages the site hosting. I receive a portion of the profits and everybody’s happy.

Meanwhile, there are my YouTube channels. I provide content, we have an agreement that they will share revenue with me for ads that run in front of my videos (etc)… except they don’t. I guess I haven’t hit their threshold, maybe it that’s it… but I feel like I’m small potatoes to them and they’ll get to me when they feel like it.

And now they say the agreement they haven’t been honoring is terminated.

YouTube revenue agreement terminated

So that’s great.

I’m tired of YouTube’s arbitrary nonsense. I’m tired of doing all the work and receiving none of the benefits. Mostly, I’m just tired of YouTube. I’m deleting EVERY VIDEO from my channels. I haven’t decided where I’m going to move my videos yet, but rest assured, the only new videos I’ll be uploading to YouTube will be to announce where my new content is hosted.

My 5 Favorite Christmas Movies (Quick Reviews)

 

The Christmas season is a ton of fun and it’s a time when people get together, so of course, it has its own movie genre.  I’m no stranger to Christmas movies, so I decided I’d make a list of my five favorites.  Not the BEST, not even the ones I THINK are the best, just the ones I currently enjoy the most.

What are some of your favorite Christmas movies?  There’s so many to choose from!  Let me know in the comments – I’d love to get some suggestions to add to my watch list.

Why I’m NOT Seeing #JusticeLeague

Here’s the new episode of Quick Reviews, a quick essay on why I decided not to see Justice League in the theater. Warner Bros doesn’t want you to see it – they blocked it from YouTube – it’s the only episode that’s ever been blocked! First, they dropped a copyright claim, which, while ridiculous (reviews and essays are clearly covered by Fair Use and the video is less than six minutes long and doesn’t center around any one of their films, so it can’t be a footage issue) at least makes sense because YouTube policy allows them to collect ad revenue from said video (which is also dumb because I just don’t have much of an audience), but then they blocked the video entirely – probably because of my negative review of the DCEU.

How Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri uses character arcs to tell an effective story (Quick Reviews)

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri uses character arcs to tell an effective story in a way I haven’t seen in a while.  I enthusiastically recommend you check this movie out!

Murder on the Orient Express kinda sucks (Quick Reviews)

I saw Murder on the Orient Express with five people.  Three of us would admit to at least fighting to keep our eyes open if not completely falling asleep.  Not exactly a wringing endorsement!

Does the first Iron Man movie make sense?

The more times I watch Iron Man, the more confused I get about the plot. Specifically, what EXACTLY is Obadiah Stane’s plan?

Thor movie review (Quick Reviews)

Here’s my review of Thor (2011) – it’s a tale of two movies, so to speak.  One is better than the other, but neither are terrible.  You can see my other Quick Reviews MCU episodes here.

Night of the Living Dead (1968) movie review (Quick Reviews)

Bonus Quick Reviews episode for Halloween! Today I’m looking at George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.  A cult classic for sure, but is it good?  I just found out the answer.

Jason X movie review (Quick Reviews)

I won’t beat around the proverbial bush – Jason X is a cheap looking, stupid movie with virtually no redeemable qualities. Enjoy!

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday movie review (Quick Reviews)

Jason Voorhees is back in Jason goes to Hell: The Final Friday in a movie that contains no scenes that take place in hell… and yet, the movie works.  It’s not really worthy of mention in the annals of horror movies nor is it even the best Friday the 13th movie, but it’s serviceable.  Check out the video and you’ll see what I mean.

In case you missed it on the YouTube channel, here’s this week’s new episode:  a review of Stephen King’s The Langoliers.  It sure makes the IT miniseries look bad.

Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (Quick Reviews)

Last year, I reviewed The Blair Witch Project.  It did not go well.  So I’m trying again with Book of Shadows:  Blair Witch 2.

It went about as well as I could have expected.
