Re: The Dan and Phil White Whale

okay so my favorite moment from a phil video is when he's talking about visiting with his grandma and dancing with her and she says "it's not the same unless it's on the sea..." and looks wistfully off into the distance as "my heart will go on" plays-- it makes me laugh out loud every single time i...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 63: hitting you with our gay agenda

This edition of Yasuhati helped soothe over the general muddled mood that has been my christmas eve eve today, especially watching Dan absolutely lose his mind over a tiny pixelated otamatone-esque character and demanding more goes even while not wanting to win the giant monstrosity of a candy Phil ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 63: hitting you with our gay agenda

Oh no I'm back. I only returned because people on the other forum were talking about the discussion on here so I figured I'd put my two cents in. Honestly I don't see why Dan being on holiday with Phil's family is really significant. I mean, he went on vacation with them earlier this year multiple ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 57: Pinky and the Brain

(I really like these questions. Both reading the answers and replying to them. :) Gives me something to pass the time with on a slow Saturday.) Do you prefer the apartment Dan and Phil currently live in or their old one? The current one. It's interesting and fun to see the way they've slowly been ma...

staying back from the current discussion, but wanted to say Katka your post was incredibly comforting to read for many reasons.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 54: Born in the fires of the internet

Totally agree that he obviously does leave the house and has friends, and he may just tweet that stuff for his relatable branding. But to play devil's advocate I guess: Dan seems to use hyperbole a lot (everything is the worst/best thing in his entire life, etc). So maybe he has anxiety about leavi...

Okay I have a question for y'all. What do you think of as Dan and Phil's most emotional/real/open video? And why? On their main channels, not including their side channels, live shows, etc. I've heard a few people talk about ISG 2 as an emotional Dan video, but I don't really see that when I watch ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 48: Exposing themselves via fidget spinner

Re: Dan & Phil Part 48: Exposing themselves via fidget spinner

Perhaps it is the ten years I have on Dan and his gen, but I don't place or see an inherent value in memes, I get the 'sarcastic simple one-liner funny footnote on life' aspect, but as a method of "discovering the world" and/or "our place in it" (as D says in the vid), that I don't agree with.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 48: Exposing themselves via fidget spinner

I really enjoyed Dan’s new video! I personally found the pacing and content just fine; it didn’t feel like an onslaught of words and the content itself was not only interesting but interspersed with edits that made me laugh. Despite this, I can definitely see why other people are confused. I have a...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 47: Do it with Dan!

Dan looked really wonderful in this ls: his hair, the cat shirt, the slight golden tan- just and the overall vibe throughout felt relaxed and inviting.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 46: Some kind of a gay backstory

Pushing hard for change is very un-Japanese, so if that's what feminism is then I think it's incompatible with Japanese core values. Advancements in technology allow people to have more freedom of choice in their lives because it makes both jobs outside the home and housework much easier. Jobs that...

I am a year younger than Phil and was semi in the 'scene' and also quite into YT between 2006 - 2010, which is when boys flirting with each other for attention seemed most prevalent (to me). It was definitely a trend, and honestly most of the time (I felt) it was done for the attention of teenage g...
