Yes I did reblog this 6 times. Your lucky if this isn’t on your dash everyday.
the sentiment behind this ask is great but also please remember i am 16 and just because i have opinions that aren’t shitty doesn’t mean you should praise me
but thanks i guess
i have not seen a single person defending him????
all of the people i know and quite a few who used to be his friends have all dropped him
so basically fuck all of that pedophiliac rapist noise
Early this morning I removed Taking Leave and the C4N’7 R3M1X35 EP (the two releases Tom Milsom and I collaborated on) from both DFTBA.com and from my personal website.
I am making no attempt to hide the fact Tom and I were once friends. He spent a weekend at my house, we worked on numerous songs and other musical projects together back in 2009. But hearing about some of the things he’s done, and was doing back then, has hurt, and I no longer wish to make another dollar off his fame or name.
I don’t know Olga, but I thank her for being strong and talking about what happened so we can, yet again, remind everyone, old and young, that using your power or fame to abuse, hurt, or manipulate anyone is not okay.
This is not an official statement from DFTBA, that is still forthcoming. This is a statement from Alan.
I followed up this post with a $1,000 donation to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network). That’s what I estimate my profits were from the sales of Taking Leave.
nothing will fuck you up as much as the realization that there’s no real reason the alphabet needs to be in order
I met Olga in 2010 at VidCon. She was a very smart, very clever, very cool young woman. I thought it was weird (but kinda cool) that Tom had found a cool fan who could hold her own with a bunch of the top-tier VidCon folks and let her behind the…
I was telling someone the other night how stoked I am to go to vidcon because I won’t have to deal with tumblr people talking about how shitty vidcon is and how it’s such a waste of money for them
fuck you!! I’m gonna go to vidcon and have a shit ton of fun and talk about community and video making and there’s nothing any tumblr person can do to stop me!!!!!
i feel like the post should have been “if you are not directly and consistently invested in the consumption or production of YouTube content, don’t complain when a conference designed for those very things doesn’t adequately facillitate your experience”
I do! and I don’t think Zach is saying “vidcon is just for people who make videos” vidcon is for people who love YouTube and love community and love film and social media
a lot if you think that I’m saying vidcon is just for the creator and that’s not what I’m saying at all. I’m just saying vidcon is not for people who hate YouTube.
I’m not saying that at all! I think if you are part of the community, whether that’s making or consuming content, you should tooootally go to vidcon! have a great time! do it!
I’m saying that most of the people on tumblr who think that vidcon is shit are people who don’t consume or create any of the content on YouTube and aren’t having the full experience of vidcon due to their lack of interest in what the con is celebrating and I think it’s honestly SO rude to walk in on what these people enjoy and say “this is a shitty thing and it’s dumb of you to like it”
vidcon is for people who enjoy youtube. if you don’t like YouTube why go to something that’s celebrating it for 3 days?
you know what I TOTALLY agree with what Zach is saying in that post. it’s super unfair for all these tumblr people to be shitting all over my good time because they don’t get the YouTube community. the tumblr community is all built up with this elitist bullshit and I’m SO tired of it!!!!
don’t go to a convention for a thing you don’t like! that’s stupid! start your own tumblr convention and perpetrate your negativity elsewhere thanks bye
If you don’t make YouTube videos, then you probably shouldn’t go to VidCon. I like y’all but it’s like someone who is not a fan of Star Trek going to a Star Trek convention. Why even bother? Doesn’t matter if your friends are going to be there, save your money and get together somewhere else.
