Re: LGBT Film and TV Show Recs

Two of my favorite movies of all time: My Beautiful Laundrette --set in Thatcherite Britain and about two young men who knew each other as kids and are different in every way--except for the way in which they are the same. The Crying Game --the background to this one is British soldiers in Northern ...

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

I loved this video, and I guess I'm not alone! I'm not always one for Phil's current content, but this was lovely, and I don't think it was just because of the glimpses of old-school Phil. Something I will rewatch, and not out of drought-desperation. :tu: <3

Re: Adrian Howell

Looks like he plans to write a quickie book about his month trip/vacation to La Palma and will be “self-publishing it and selling it online when it’s finished, using it as a means to subsidize future adventures.” Where does one find out about these things? Instastories? (I just admitted on another ...

Re: when/how did y'all first get into the phandom??

astraltraveller Hello and :welcome: ! I always enjoy hearing stories about how people got into the phandom. This bit of your story resonated with me on two counts: i liked his older videos like philippa and geddan but not subscribed because i'm too lazy to make a yt account. It's great to meet a fa...

Re: Adrian Howell

I tend to agree that people should watch what they want, and some messages are good for some people and terrible for others. My main problem with Adrian at this point is that he's getting pretty boring. I feel as though he's already told us this stuff three or four times. Yes, in this video he menti...

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

I'm loving all the discussion on gender and gender identity (and Dan). For myself, I don't think anything Dan has done proves (or disproves) Dan having a particular gender identity. When the discussion was focused on Dan potentially "opening up" about identifying as something other than masculine, I...

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

And did we talk about their mention in Tomska's video? I saw uproar over the dick size joke on tumblr that just gave me a mild headache. If people don't know what kind of humor to expect from Tom by now... take it or leave it, but it's not worth getting upset over imo. We didn't! at 6:44 https://ww...

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

Out of curiosity I decided to look through Dan and Phil's tumblr tags using timestamps to go way back, just to see when they started being/having a fandom on tumblr, and ended up stumbling over a formspring answer I'd never seen! It's so trippy to find stuff so old it's new to me. Wow, that's tripp...

Re: vlogbrothers

I recently picked AART up on a trip to the library looking for something to read. (I read loads of fic, but I read loads of published novels and other books as well.) I enjoyed it! The science fiction plot was pretty lightweight (but I don't there was any intention to make it more substantive; it wa...

Re: Adrian Howell

I think you're right that Adrian is more explicitly pitching a how-to in his food-related videos, and certainly in his Instagram. I guess we can hope he'll learn to be more careful about the claims he makes as he appreciates the size of his audience and how they respond. He's still just starting out...

Re: Adrian Howell

I find it so interesting that so many IDB'ers have chosen to make the point, both here and in the main threads, that they don't like Adrian's videos. Certainly nobody is being mean about it; the motivation seems more about wanting to make clear that just because one is a fan of Dan (and Phil) does n...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 81: Now what?

I think Dan would benefit so much from university, studying something he was interested in, rather than something that's supposed to become a career. I can definitely see him doing a degree in something like philosophy (or Philosophy, Politics and Economics, which to my American ear sounds like a ma...

Wow, this video was incredible! It went so many places I didn’t expect it to go, and it definitely instantly became my new favorite PINOF. I feel like it might have been more efficient for me to just write a transcript for the whole video because every moment felt like a highlight. But here’s what ...

Don't mind me, just arriving late without Starbucks but having watched PINOF 5+ times now. It was a really good one (one of the best) although I do think that I liked 9 better. That's fine, it doesn't mean that this one wasn't brilliant and we've been spoiled this year anyway. I just felt like they...

So for the over-analyzers amongst us: 1:57 - Boxing stuff seemed to be close by at hand - just like the yoga mats were in GTPWTW. I wonder if they brought them to that flat solely for the filming bits or if they actually do their exercise-y stuff there? 2:06 - I love the face Dan makes when Phil ac...
