Idolizing people

See, the thing is, I tend to idolize people a lot. And I mean a lot. Be it celebrities, friends, people I wish I was friends with, it doesn't matter.
And apparently, that's a bad thing. And I disagree. I mean, when I tell someone I look up to them they immediately go "oh no you shouldn't I'm not worth it I'm not that perfect blah blah". This became a thing among british vloggers a few months ago, too. I think Louise (Sprinkle of glitter) started it with this video (and it seems to be most people's view on the subject) with which I agree to some extent. However, most of it I just can't accept. I mean yes, of course youtubers are not perfect, nobody is and that's okay and it does not mean that being inspired by someone and idolizing someone doesn't nessesarily mean you consider them Gods among men. Then there was Alfie (PontlessBlog)'s video which is kind of what I want to say. Okay, I realize there are people that take idolizing to a whole new level, a whole new, frightening and unhealthy level of blind support but come on, we are not all like this. I lost the train of my thought so I will just continue in hopes someone, somewhere actually understands me.
Examples. For example, I idolize the fuck out of Gerard Way. I all but worship him (okay, not really but you get it) and the dude is far from perfect. And he probably fucks up, has fucked up, does stupid things but boy do I admire how he handles it. And what he stands up for. And how fucking artistic he is. And then there is Jacoby Shaddix, and actually, I think every person I've ever idolized is very much fucked up in one way or another and that's what I admire so much. They have gone through things and they still go through things but in the end of the day they are still here, no matter what and that is some strenght there. Strenght is awesome, strenght is admirable and strenght is idol-worthy. 

I guess this was just a long overdue rand over being slightly offended by a youtube video. I refuse to be told who I should or shouldn't idolize, admire, look up to, whatever you call it. I feel like if I continue this paragraph I'll just retell Alfie's video even more than I already did. So, the end.
I swear this post had some sort of structure in my mind. Oh well.

That's not nessesarily related to the post, but it's Dan and he's damn right.
That being said, I'm in desperate need to spam someone with my youtube feels and since no one is particularly interested well, hi blog, long time no see.

So, I don't really remember how, but somehow I came across a TheFineBros video this morning. I like them, and especially youtubers react (because honestly, it makes me feel good when I see someone I know, and then again, they are really amusing to watch and I often find cute new people and damn I should stop writing in brackets). And, as always, somehow I ended up in their "All react episodes ever made" playlist and accidentaly saw a youtubers react video, and I just can't resist one of those, no matter how little I know about the thing they react to. Blah, blah, I decided one of them is cute. He didn't really stand out to me then, but that might be because I'm hopelessly biased to Shane and anything but him is pretty replaceable. Anyhoe, that's how I found about Dan Howell's existence. I might be a little obsessed by now. Just a little. A tiny little bit. Yeah.

I am pretty sure Phil Lester is next in the to-be-obsessed-with list but it's not his time yet.
This however made me think about all my favorite youtubers and my ultimate love, Shane Dawson (mainly because Dan is currently making it really hard to stay that way).
Shane is the thing that makes me smile, lights up my day and causes other various cheesy reactions. Anyway. I think the first video of his I saw was the Twilight parody, I'm not sure. That's what stood out the most to my youtube-inexperienced self a couple of years ago though. He owns the title of my favorite youtuber ever since.
And then there's Dan who is fucking flawless and lives with another fucking flawless creature and oh my poor fangirling heart.

I can't wait for the moment I overcome my laziness and finally watch more of Tyler Oakley, DaveyWavey, Cyr, AmazingPhil, MyHarto, Rosanna Pansino, Onison, Joey Graceffa, Ryan Higa and the list probably goes on. I don't even remember some of those people's names and that's bad.
And no, I don't really like Pewds, he creeps me out.
I should probably stop this now or it'll goes on forever. Though I'll probably keep showering this blog in my youtube feels. I will. Soon.

By the way, Shanaynay is the baws.
