It’s @andrewbravener’s birthday. Back in the Stone Age of YouTube when I was nobody, he promoted me. He’s one of the first Canadian YouTubers I watched regularly and he’s been a model for integrity and authenticity. We’ve clocked a total of 32 hrs of our live show together and sat through a lifetime of the worst YouTube clips. Thanks for being a great friend, co-host, and personal tailor.

Anonymous asked: Do you miss VlogCandy and would you ever attempt to "bring it back to life" or something like that?
I miss VlogCandy all the time. I frequently go the the channel and spend hours watching old videos. Some of my all-time favourite videos I’ve ever made are on that channel. Part of me wishes I could go back in time and do it all over again. I mean, I got to make videos every week with my best friends, I got to travel, participate in live YouTube related events and let’s not forget the VC Beach Bash. VlogCandy sums up everything I loved about YouTube and was the most fun I’ve ever had making videos.
When the channel ended it was heartbreaking for all of us. The skype calls leading up to it were full of tears but we knew that it was time. We felt that going out with a bang would be so much better than trying to continue with it and watching the channel that we loved so much, fizzle and die.
As far as “bring(ing) it back to life”, I wish I could say it’s a possibility but it’s just not. Even IF (and that’s a monumental IF) everyone was back on board to get it going again it wouldn’t be the same as before. We’ve grown up, got big people jobs, have relationships, and almost all of us have slowly been disconnecting from YouTube. There was a very brief consideration of handing the channel over to someone to continue our project but that would have just ruffled a lot of feathers. People would complain, it would be a huge mess and we ultimately didn’t want to turn 3 years of hard work over to just anyone. It just wouldn’t be VC without Zack, Aubrey, John, Meghan and myself.
I could talk forever about VlogCandy and how much I love it, but it’s not coming back. A little part of me gets super stoked that after almost 3 years after ending the channel, people still ask about it. I miss it just as much as you.
One of my all time favourite VlogCandy videos. Wait for the montage at the end.
