I am so shocked to see that Jimmy didn't already have a thread on here?? Well, I guess there's always a place to start

Anyway, I wanted to share one of his tweets (which are pure gold for the most part), and obviously it doesn't fit with the main thread.
I mean he hardly makes videos anymore, which is a serious shame, but I guess when he does post or states something hilarious and/or topical there can be some separate discussion on here.

Also he's just generally lovely and this seems like a good place to calmly gush over him.

I've actually started listening to Jimmy on the radio sometimes, once I realized with the app it doesn't region block you. I'm definitely suffering through a lot of music I have no interest in just to hear his little bits between songs. I don't usually make it through the whole thing, though. (Sorry, Jimmy.)

It's actually the Capital FM app! I have no idea what his schedule actually is, though. I tend to just watch twitter and turn it on when I see that he's tweeted he's live.

You can also watch him Mon-Thur on Trending Live if you are from the UK or use a VPN to make it think you're from the UK. But that's kind of pain so I've satisfied myself with the app.

jimmy is one of those first gen youtubers i can rewatch and he'll instantly put me in a good mood. he's the only reason i watched the whole of cereal time, every episode. i would watch anything he uploaded. but i especially wanted to see more of the house renovating process. i like his diy and tastes. and chels! i miss their chemistry. i wonder why their podcast never got off the ground...

At the risk of sounding like an idiot... Jimmy being in a Taylor Swift video, joke or not? https://twitter.com/CapitalOfficial/sta ... 4781075456

I just had to triple take at that. I'm gonna say... tentatively... photoshopped? But also like, good job, capital fm, because I'm definitely not speaking with conviction on that.

I think I'm just not getting the joke, which is why I was like... is it possible it's not a joke? But I made an attempt to fullscreen and watch as little of the video as possible, and it seems like there's a blurry blond dude who is significantly blonder than the gif Jimmy. Maybe if I actually listened to him on the radio I'd understand why it's funny.

Does anyone else think of Phil's "Why I can't go back to the gym.." video? No? Just me, then.

(No, I didn't think they copied Phil. I was just excited in a "Phimmy!!!!!" sense. :rofl: )

Ha, the gym video must be the origin of another Jimmy tweet Phil liked this week. What is with all the sudden twitter interaction? I know they've known each other for a while, just funny that I heard about Jimmy (not including that one interview). for the first time maybe 3 months ago, and they're now casual twitter mutuals?

They've both been reading amaaf. Waveydnp has inspired them to rekindle their friendship

Does anyone else sometimes say “I love you too” at the end of his videos? Like, out loud? No? Just me? Okay.

Loved his dragging of LP, it was just enough. Yay House Files!

For whatever reason YouTube decided to automatically play Louise’s baby vlog right after this. Why?

He says it like I'm going to say it back. It would be rude not to.

:lol: Thanks guys. When I first started watching him I thought the pause between “I love you” and “bye” were meant be awkward and a bit unsettling, but as I’ve kept watching I feel like I’ve been conditioned to respond. Though sometimes the fondness just builds up naturally throughout the course of the video and I’m overflowing with it by the end. (My husband doesn’t get Jimmy’s awkward false humble bragging humor. When I showed him a few videos he just sat there unmoved and said “okay” at the end. It saddens me greatly. *But* I finally convinced him to watch pinof 9 and the bloopers last night and he was cracking up so I should savor my triumphs.)

I think I held back from being more overtly a fan of Jimmy's on tumblr for a long time out of some kind of fear that people would try to tell me why he wasn't good? Like, I started watching him right on the tail end of Cereal Time and I just remember lots of conversation about Jimmy and Charlie not being great for the show/together but I loved watching Jimmy so much and I think I subconsciously just made the decision that Jimmy would be someone I'd enjoy without inviting people to tell me why I was wrong.

So basically my little corner of phandom exploding with Jimmy love has just been the best thing ever.

Fuck em, he’s hilarious. Thanks for introducing many of us and spreading the love! I still haven’t watched everything of his, but I went on another binge yesterday. I honestly thought this video was filled with such good advice, on doing research papers in particular. I could have really benefitted from it, more than a few years ago.
