Double-posting, but if anyone likes Tom's vlogs, this last one is pretty special. :ghost:

I miss Dan Howell's stupid face.

I feel so dumb, I watched that a few days ago but didn't pick up on that at all. Reading the comments now made me realize that there was something going on.

Well done, Tom :ghostclaps:

I was glad for the head's up here! I noticed some unusual things as I watched, but I wouldn't have thought to put them together.

I want to highlight these videos because they're so good. I love Echo, I love them together and I appreciate their dark sillyness a lot.

Pretty suspicious to post this on April 1st but it seems like Last month is indeed over. I totally understand why but it's still very sad. I've enjoyed following along with Tom and the boys for the last few years.



Considering what's going on in the main thread I enjoyed Tom talking about his thoughts for the future and how he's considered stepping away from the internet. It's still not a conversation I think is owed us as an audience but I appreciate his honesty and hearing his thought process around his work. Idk, I'd like to hear what others think of it.

ETA: I just realized it has been posted in the other thread oops

A bit of an odd question, but as a very casual tomska viewer I wouldn't know - does anyone have receipts of some kind of impression of him working with IRL for merch? If there isn't, that's chill, but it would be interesting to have that documented in one place if anyone has any idea!

That was a thing for a bit (confusedpanda's post in that thread, if the link is wonky), but then he went with some other company that messed up shipping prices (or something? I remember Tom being pretty frustrated with the launch whenever it finally happened). I mostly just remembered him having the site with IRL, but I don't know if there are more receipts than that (if that even fully counts as a receipt since the sites don't work now lol). I don't recall Tom ever saying anything outright about IRL being an option he was negotiating, though.

Might as well put this in his actual thread as an fyi: So maybe they'll get him yet.
Thanks and have a great day! Oil me

Wow, straight white cis man with influence and platform makes joke that is badly worded in a way that can be misinterpreted by people spreading hateful messages, deletes original joke but reposts as a screenshot for transparency, apologizes, expresses regret, and clarifies his intentions/where his support lies.

Weird how all of that is actually possible and doesn't even seem that hard to do.
