So...the new "YouTube Shorts" watch page interface...

I hate it. I hate vertical video, I hate scrolling, I hate mobile devices and touch screens and everything to do with them. Does anyone know how to change the playback settings in my account so all YouTube Shorts videos still play in the classic desktop-screen format for me? YouTube community post:…

Buzzly.art

So after a few friends told me that Buzzly.art is what deviantART SHOULD have been like if the Eclipse update didn't suck, I figured I'd try it out. Haven't posted a lot there yet though. Don't worry I'll still be just as active on Weasyl and FurrAffinitty, I'm just branching out to hopefully reach…

Might be raising commission prices soon-ish

Been thinking about it for a while, and was even planning on increasing my prices around this time last year, but you know...pandemic happened and a lot of people were out of work so I held off. But I feel like the amount of work I put into my art and my level of improvement calls for a slightly hi…

Got a new video editor

So I went and picked up a more recent and advanced version of Sony Vegas Movie Studio at Best Buy today and so far it seems to be working fine (though it has trouble with some older video formats like AVCHD, which my camcorder exports to, but I have another program that converts those to MP4 so it'…

Some unsettling news about the entire fan-art community

I've heard from a fairly popular artist today that in recent months Nintendo has been issuing legal take-down orders all all content (even if it isn't of Nintendo characters necessarily" on multiple platforms like Twitter and Patreon. It hasn't happened to ME yet, but can anyone tell me if it's hap…

14 Year YouTube Anniversary (Late)

CanFURence 2021

https://www.canfurence.ca/ I'm hoping to attend my first actual furry convention on the 14 with ThatWeirdCollector (assuming life doesn't throw any curve-balls in the next week.)

Updated my YouTube username (kinda)

It's now AceSpadeThePikachu. For years it was literally just "Ace" which, let's be honest, is waaaay to generic for a channel approaching 800 subscribers.

About YouTube subscription notifications

Up until a week ago I had the "notify me of new subscribers" option in my YouTube settings switched on, but recently I (and from what I hear a lot of people) have been inundated with several spam-bot accounts ghost-subbing (without actually subscribing, only sending the notification) with dumb user…

SOOO Close to 777 YouTube Subscribers!

At the time of writing this I have 768. I already have a special video ready to be uploaded the moment I reach that "Lucky Triple Sevens" mark.

Making some modifications to my bluescreen/greenscreen

For any of you who've watched my videos for the past couple years you've noticed I use Blue-screen a LOT, and that said blue-screen was long overdue for repair and redesign...as it was literally a bed sheet taped to the wall. The other day I went to Walmart and picket up a large curtain rod to set…

Update: (Maybe) Going to a small convention on the 8th

If everything is a go I'll be finally taking out Pikachu-Me for a spin again for the first time in over a year and maybe buying a few plushies (both I and ThatWeirdCollector are fully vaccinated so no worries there.) I do need to make some small adjustments to my it though since while Pika-Me's bel…

Fully vaccinated yay. :3

Earlier today I called the local pharmacy and I lucked out because I was able to get a same-day appointment for my second vaccine dose. Just got home as I'm typing this (my legs are NOT accustomed to walking outside again after a year of lockdown. XD) It's too early to know if I'm gonna have any si…

Update on previous update: Turns out I was misinformed

So yeah, last journal I posted I said I might be getting my second vaccine dose today because I'd heard eligibility between first and second doses was moved up from 28 days to 21? Well I called the pharmacy and they told me that apparently this is not the case (despite an e-mail from Ontario Health…

Unownace’s avatar

Another update: I could be getting my second vaccine sooner

Ontario is fast-tracking second dose COVID vaccine shots for all ages, so I may be able to get my second shot a week earlier than planed (This Friday July 2nd instead of July 8th), as long as my local pharmacy has enough supply.

Updates (Could use ideas)

First off, Canada Day is in 3 days and I'm not sure what yet, if anything, I'll be doing for it (video or art), so suggestions or commissions pertaining to it are welcome. I'm also nearing 750 YouTube subscribers (currently at 742), and I'm undecided if I should do a special video for that 750 mark…

Finally got my vaccine! (First dose anyway.)

After weeks of waiting and e-mailing and calling the dang pharmacy I FINALLY got a walk-in appointment to the Pfizer vaccine this morning.

Video recording/editing issue seems to be fixed (For now)
