Re: Dan & Phil Part 95: ASS (Aquarium Staff Seminar)

There were a lot of curious things about it to me, like the page number already being listed but no publisher. The publisher was listed as Dey Street Books for me, and I've seen a fair amount of discussion about them, the fact that they publish books by other YouTubers, the legitimacy of a HarperCo...

Oop, it’s gone from his goodreads profile and the title doesn’t come up in a search. Not that I’ve been checking :roll:
It's still showing on his profile for me, but the link is broken when I click. (It also shows a 5 star rating based on 6 reviews, which I assume is phandom?)

Re: LGBT Film, TV Show, and Book Recs

Book recs inspired by @katka in the main thread, I did a quick search so hopefully these are recs that aren't already mentioned in this thread but I'm not sure. LGBT scifi/fantasy is my area of specialization, at least for this list: Ancestral Night by Elizabeth Bear is about a lesbian on a space sa...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 94: Year of the Rats

Not to pass on info an anon sent me as if I know anything about it, but I did fact-check; the real estate company Dan followed is owned by a husband from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Dan has also followed cast members from it (on Instagram and Twitter). So, it seems to me that it's like...

(@liola I forgot to quote but I was responding to your "social media isn't for that [promoting things], it's to... keep social" which I may have been misunderstanding; on looking back, it seems like you may have meant that Phil's social media specifically isn't for that?

Re: Dan & Phil Part 94: Year of the Rats

I've sort of grown tired of waiting for Dan to put out contact or just independently communicate with his fans that he is, indeed, alive, but the fact that he isn't really in contact with people in his life like Louise does worry me a little. As someone who's been in a boxing match with my mental h...

Oh now that's interesting. I have no idea what Motion Picture Literary means but I'm intrigued. It doesn't seem to be relevant to Dan; Chris Sawtelle was hired in Motion Picture Literary in 2018, but is currently in Digital Ventures & Talent, which is where Dan falls. Maybe Dan is a more recent add...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 94: Year of the Rats

It's interesting to me that Tatinof wasn't "performing arts" but was "artistic creation." I don't know anything about these codes, but would that indicate a separate between performing self-written work and performing work by others?

yeah I totally get that and it makes sense, I just love my (apparently non-existent) fourth wall.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 94: Year of the Rats

Phil can enjoy things without Dan? Dan doesn't have the prerogative on queer experiences? They've been watching drag race together so they probably have the same amount of love for drag shows? I don't think anyone is saying that Phil can't or shouldn't enjoy queer things without Dan. Obviously we d...

CBS is owned by Viacom and they have a bunch of channels like Comedy Central but they also stream things so it could be that he was serious about comedy?

Oh wow. I'm oddly surprised they're at the show? That's so sweet. :') I also really hope they're watching from some hidden-away, backstage-type area throughout... for Cornelia's sake. The fan's Twitter claims she's a few people away from them, so it sounds like they're probably not hidden/backstage.
