Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

The one practice i really had more of an issue with is the paid meet&greets. I know some k-pop bands to them, idk if other entertainers do them but to me it's a very odd society indeed where we turning saying hi&bye + taking a pic into a commodity you have to pay a fancy amount of cash for. The pri...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

My question is - if the hiatus wasn’t happening, would anyone find anything questionable about these marketing techniques? Right? I'm not sure if people are more tuned in to it at the moment since there's not much else to focus on? Selfies, videos, etc. have always been strategically released in co...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Enjoyed the video a lot. Liked that he included little clips from Brighton, even though they were short it was nice to see scenery besides a wall. The sharpie becoming all encapsulated with crystals is almost metaphorical.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I might get the black shirt but I'm wondering how thin the material is. In the picture of Lauren on twitter you can see her legs through it.

ETA: Phil changed his profile pic on twitter & I'm loving the look of his layout now.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Just had surprisingly good service with the U.S. dnp shop. I typically order from the U.K. shop but they didn't have my size in one of the items I wanted so I ordered from the U.S. one despite past bad experiences. I ordered on April 12th, it shipped out the next day, and I received it today, less t...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Off topic but Grace Helbig's new video (I Don't Like My Content) is really relevant to what Dan seems to be going through at the moment. They seem to be in a very similar place in a lot of different ways and it was interesting to hear Grace articulate that same types of things we've been hearing fro...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

^^Comes back, makes a cake, and disappears again - you're right, I can totally see him doing that. And like what's been said here - he has a built in joke already made for him with the returning from the dead on Easter thing. Not a fan of Dan's climate change tweets. Ever. Maybe I'm over sensitive s...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Isn’t the whole point of Easter miraculous, unexpected returns from the dead? :lol: Ha! Can you imagine the memes? :lol: Still can't foresee Dan returning to youtube on Phil's channel before his own but I've found over the years that any predictions/assumptions I make about Dan and/or Phil are usua...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

As much as I'm ready for joint content to start again, I think it would feel weird for Easter baking to be Dan's first appearance back on youtube. It feels a bit too much like Dan and Phil™ for where we're at right now. I think when we do see joint content start back up, it will be something new or ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Although still silly as ever these pics seem like a grown up version of the ones they did for the project of awesome fundraiser. There's something idk, warmer? about them and a sense of calmness? or self assurance? I'm not sure how to explain it but I do know that when looking at those photos I feel...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

^^ Since Dan is wearing the same thing & his hair is at the same level of curliness it looks like he just stayed there this whole time and waited for the others to come back a year later. :lol: Re Dan's tweet: Okay it took me forever to figure out why Dan made the black hole a Virgo (I was looking u...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

I'm thinking the blue shirt is going to be like the Pugs shirt he wears a lot but instead with a corgi on it. I'm curious as to what's going to be on the yellow & black tops - I would guess plant/cactus and fox like the stickers but I can't picture those matching with the shirt colors.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Deflecting that frustration with “he’s actually been pretty clear about not posting on his main channel lols, what’s the problem?” is garbage. There's no deflecting going on here. I am fully aware that most of the disappointment lately comes from missing joint content and that's totally valid. My p...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Dan could have much easier returned to social media if instead of vaguepranking he popped in with "sorry I've been absent, been having a tough time, [... Etc]". In fact, the most professional would have been to lead with that a few months ago. Dan didn't actually leave social media though. Less act...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 84: Still Alive

Doesn't everyone who does a prank on April 1 want attention for it? I feel like Dan communicated something that I'm happy with - an acknowledgement that he knows people are waiting on a video and a comment on when he'll upload (when he's ready) in a really tongue in cheek way. He's in a lose/lose s...

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

Based on the surface the flower is on, the room seems to be the same one he took this pic in from June 2017, just at a different angle (not sure where it is in their flat, though).

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

I just rewatched Phil's newest video again & I found myself laughing & enjoying it more today than I did when I first viewed it. It's funny how much your mood can affect your feelings towards something, which is a good reminder for me to wait a bit before sharing my opinions. I really do just want P...

Re: PewDiePie

When it comes to Felix I always think about that quote Hank Green wrote in his book that he gave to Dan: "with great power comes great responsibility". When you have 90,000,000+ subscribers you have to realize how big your influence is on people. I saw so many people say in defense of Felix that Ben...

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

My biggest complain to that is that it's not up to us to decide whether or not his content need to progress. Towards what? What's the end goal? What should it become? Does it matter whether Phil wants it to progress or not? Why should he change something if he still enjoys it? Change is good and a ...

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

(hi there - sorry to jump right in. long time lurker, have some thoughts and want to take part in the discussion) This year I've really enjoyed Phil's Quiz Show and Google Search videos. I was surprised when I saw that a lot of people didn't find the Quiz one entertaining. Maybe I enjoyed it because...
