Things continue to be extraordinarily busy here (I sent off three projects today alone and it wasn’t even an all that productive day) but despite that I’ve managed to notice something odd about my youtube recommendations. They’re usually a bit off the mark, based off that one video I saw about a guy putting an iPhone in a pan full of melted crayons, but this particular oddness has lingered for a few days, persistently recommending a very particular type of videos.
I can’t figure out why this is. Is this a side effect of watching a video of the American drag queen Katya (full name Yekaterina Petrovna Zamolodchikova) or is this the beginning of the Russian invasion? Russia is very close, you guys. It’s so goddamn close.
Has any of you noticed something similar? Do you have any stories about the weird side of youtube?
