Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Yeah, I totally understand not liking dark humor about serious topics (I felt that way when people were creating hunchback memes when Notre Dame was still burning) but what I like about his climate change tweets is that they highlight the ridiculousness of the situation. Here we are literally killi...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

@Sakura Selfie fair enough. Alternative topic related to some of the discussions last week: where do people personally draw the line? I’m genuinely curious. Personally, I think something like IDing windows from nearly a decade ago is a fun topic of conversation in a detective-oriented fandom like t...

Re: Discussion of Fics We're Currently Loving

I'm also interested to see how Dan continues to cope in a new environment. Of course he's with Phil, but at the end of the chapter where his anxiety comes out more is both very fitting and very gripping in showing who he is and how that might play into their dynamic while on this holiday. Ooh yes I...

Re: Discussion of Fics We're Currently Loving

I'm excited for Cornelia. I really love the Kath dynamic in this chapter, and I'm looking forward to all of them, but there's something about the little taste of Cornelia we got in this chapter that whets my appetite. Just seems like it's gonna be a great characterization, but I don't know yet what ...

For your fake relationship needs I highly recommend The Last Act of the Show by vvelna. I read it today and I can't stop thinking about it. It was just so so good.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 83: Where in the World is Daniel Howell

I don't usually watch Carrie but I'm watching her talk about not wanting to make videos and overthinking why people watch Youtubers and what's her channel's "thing," and it just feels a bit relevant to our absent Dan. She doesn't come to any particularly interesting conclusions, and then she goes on...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 83: Where in the World is Daniel Howell

Phil and Martyn both talking about The OA makes me think of Phil watching Doctor Foster (is that the right show? I am trusting an anon on that) to talk to Kath about it. I love the idea of the Lesters watching the same TV shows wherever they are as a bonding thing, like how my mom and I talk about P...

What I meant by that is that imo he already thinks his “thing” is discussing topics in a humorous way with some underlying bigger or deeper message, a message which is both serious and a bit ironic to keep it funny. Then when he talks in liveshows or even when he talked about ii on the dvd etc (or ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 83: Where in the World is Daniel Howell

I have given my opinions on it before so I’ll spare everyone but I really dislike when he talks about trying to validate his career. I don’t like how dismissive that sounds to the rest of his content and to the fans that enjoyed it. As a content creator myself, I'd just note that looking for valida...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 82: now onto the future

I don't think it's ever helpful to give unsolicited emotional advice to strangers. And when that advice presents things that are really complex and difficult for a lot of people as simple and easy and "just move on," it feels dismissive and condescending. That's going to make people defensive, even ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 82: now onto the future

I don't think it's any more productive to tell people to get over their feelings (or change perspectives, etc., even if that might on an individual basis be helpful for someone one knows) than it is for people to express those feelings. Nothing we say here is "productive" in terms of making changes ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 82: now onto the future

Like, if they communicate their plans for something before it's definite (or before they have a set date for it) then everyone gets into a cycle of expectation and anticipation that can end badly if things don't end up following through (like with Phil's first video this year taking longer than exp...
