To get ready for the upcoming :festivedeppy: festive content, we're going to watch some iconic videos and even play a game together! Due to popular demand, we're again using rabb.it. This will allow us to watch at the same time and chat, while also coming here to discuss afterwards :)
We are going to "meet up" on rabb.it and here on the forum on Sunday, December 16th at one of the times listed. I will start the video once people have gathered, we will watch them together, and then come back here to chat about them!

Schedule: (handy time zone converter for you: http://www.timebie.com/timelocal/universal.php)
Sunday, December 16th, 1 PM and 7 PM UTC
:gift: Join rabb.it or start the video by yourself and come here to chat! :gift:

Videos:
We will be marathoning the videos with short breaks upon request!
- First video: A Festive Day in the Life of Dan and Phil!

Hi everyone, we're starting our first round really soon! Join us here: https://www.rabb.it/PhandomWatch
Remember you can also watch the vids in your own time or join us for the second round later! <3

I would really love if we manage to still have a chat here on IDB.
Here's the first round of questions for us to consider:
1. Do you think that making games is something Dan and Phil might put more focus on in the future?
2. Favorite moment/the moment that stood out the most in each video?
3. Dan and Phil haven't given us much festive content aside from Gamingmas in the recent years. Why do you think they don't do Christmas baking/vlogs/etc more often?
4. What's your #1 wish for :festivedeppy: in 2019?
5. Which one was better - the DITL or THE TREE?

1. Do you think that making games is something Dan and Phil might put more focus on in the future?
2. Favorite moment/the moment that stood out the most in each video?
3. Dan and Phil haven't given us much festive content aside from Gamingmas in the recent years. Why do you think they don't do Christmas baking/vlogs/etc more often?
4. What's your #1 wish for :festivedeppy: in 2019?
5. Which one was better - the DITL or THE TREE?
1) I'm sure Phil loves making them and it shows in the Christmas adventure, and we know he does because of Truth Bombs. I feel like Dan does not like it as much but is just happy to follow Phil's lead on this?

2) DITL : the morning softness and Phil saying "we're not gonna steal it"about the mulled wine.
THE TREE: on the whole, how young they are. They are tiny babies putting up a Christmas tree. It's cute.
MILLIONAIRES : The whole video! Their sync, Kath saving the day, Phil being stressed and Dan being a cheeky shit.
CHRISTMAS ADVENTURE : The fun they're having making it! You see that they're genuinely happy in this one. Maybe it's not just making the video. Maybe it's the context ;)

3) I guess it's because it's a busy time for everyone but especially for them because of Gamingmas. They don't have time to film quality vlogs (according to them, i'm not picky, anything would make me happy). Also, the festive season may be quite personal for some people? And it may also be stressful so maybe it's not the right time for them to make videos where they are "creatively free", not blocked by the gaming video format.

4) I want them to get the forever home! Come on boys, you have worked so so hard this year, can't be for nothing. It's high time! That way Phil can play naked in his very own home, on his own sofa.

5) DITL definitely. The whole video is so wholesome and cute and festive and warm <3 like a warm hug. :happytears:
<3 <3 <3

1. I think it's possible. They're two creative guys and I could totally see that happening in the future.

2. What I loved the most is how they always have fun together. It's sort of a given, I get that, but still. Seeing them having fun, giggling, being the domestic couple they are whether it's 2009, 2010, 2014 or 2016 warms my cold heart. They really love each other, don't they. Ugh. :happytears:

3. BECAUSE THEY HATE US. No but seriously, I really don't know. I would love some vlogmas, for example, but I don't think that will ever happen - just like a ditl, i think those kind of videos that require a lot of filming into their daily life are not something they're totally comfortable in, yet. But I can guarantee you I will be very upset if we don't get Christmas Baking this year.

4. FOREVER HOME FOREVER HOME FOREVER HOME. Seriously, it's time, just do it. It frustrates me that they're wasting money on renting that confusing duplex with way too much rooms and stairs; I would expect better from Capita£ester.

5. DITL. Hands down. It's a masterpiece and the best Dan and Phil video in the world.

The second round is over!
Thanks to everyone that watched and remember, let's try to chat here as well! The questions are above and here are some new ones:
1. What other gaming videos can you think of where they are both so into the game as they were in Millionaires?
2. Do you think they will come back to Gamingmas in 2019?
3. They still have almost all the same tree decorations as in 2010 - laziness or nostalgia? :lol:
You don't have to answer all 8 questions, pick and choose the ones you like :)

That was a lot of fun! I don't regret waking up as early as I did in my timezone to catch the first round (though a nap was needed lol) and it was great to use rabbit again. I also found the hive mind with our interactive choices quite amusing.

1. Do you think that making games is something Dan and Phil might put more focus on in the future?
I think it's definitely possible. They seem to enjoy it, though I'm not sure what they could make in the future. But I guess that's what surprises are for.

2. Favorite moment/the moment that stood out the most in each video?
ditl: Dan's sex prediction and the softness when they were chilling in their pjs in the morning.
THE TREE: Phil going to hit Dan but smacking the light first is so dumb and funny. And the shared shirt is grossly classic.
Millionaire: Calling Kath and having her not only get the answer within moments but become so invested quickly. Also Dan going into full "I need to be on my best, most polite behaviour" despite them playing a time-sensitive game lol. Too cute.
Christmas adventure: I love Phil's weird editing in this as a whole, and I think Phil having multiple options where you get to kill Dan is amusing. Also the acting....really quite oscar worthy.

3. Dan and Phil haven't given us much festive content aside from Gamingmas in the recent years. Why do you think they don't do Christmas baking/vlogs/etc more often?
I think gamingmas is pretty demanding on its own, so I can see why they would focus on doing gamingmas (and I guess also putting out that many videos in December instead of a scattered amount of festive ones is good for their pockets). I think that it's probably a bit easier to play games instead of thinking up other festive things to do, though I am still crossing my fingers for baking. Maybe all of that will change in the future though.

4. What's your #1 wish for :festivedeppy: in 2019?
Forever home, but I think that's a given at this point tbh.

5. Which one was better - the DITL or THE TREE?
DITL 100%. It's one of my personal favourites of all of their videos. It's just so sweet and domestic, and while THE TREE is cute for the time and for 2010, I think DITL holds up more today.

1. What other gaming videos can you think of where they are both so into the game as they were in Millionaires?
At the top of my head? The Impossible Quiz. Probably one of, if not, the most peak Dan and Phil frustration right there. I mean, it spawned a hell series, so I think it deserves some recognition.

2. Do you think they will come back to Gamingmas in 2019?

Well, they did say they were doing DILMAS werent they? or have i lost my marbles...I doubt theyd do one, but ill be pleasantly surprised if they did so.

3. They still have almost all the same tree decorations as in 2010 - laziness or nostalgia? :lol:
I bet you a million pounds its nostalgia. like i mentioned in the chat earlier, this is the same dan that kept all his ancient possessions for years if they hold some sort of meaning in his life cough pinof1 questions on a napkin cough



also i wanted to answer some of these...



1. Do you think that making games is something Dan and Phil might put more focus on in the future?
I think they definitely have some talent in it. Theyre a pretty good team and by now, they probably have some pretty good experience and connections to pull it through. Phil has always been pretty creative with these things and Dan has been doing well in helping Phil harnessing that idea into a real thing. They could totally do it if they want to,

3. Dan and Phil haven't given us much festive content aside from Gamingmas in the recent years. Why do you think they don't do Christmas baking/vlogs/etc more often?
I'm a sucker for DITL videos, pls....just anything lowkey is fine by me. They could be filming themselves doing their festive drink codex like imagine them sitting in front of a table full of holiday themed drinks and just rating them all....idk man. I'd watch it.

4. What's your #1 wish for :festivedeppy: in 2019?
Please be happy and take care of yourselves.

agreed. i love a good son-in-law dan. also in the christmas adventure, dan seemed really sheepish in some parts (like that part where he was giggling after "attacking" phil with some icicles) and its really cute.

I loved all the videos and I'm so eager to rewatch the entirety of Gamingmas now (which I should not do because I should be doing other stuff)
We had a nice turnout for round one, and surprisingly less people for round two - but it was a good run :)
I'll answer my own questions to keep up the conversation:

1. Do you think that making games is something Dan and Phil might put more focus on in the future?
Honestly, I think they might? I keep thinking about their future and what their next project might be, and I feel like radio, tv and making a game all seem somewhat plausible. I want a full on Mark of Oxin. :lol: Or a podcast.

2. Favorite moment/the moment that stood out the most in each video?
DITL: maybe the entire section when they wake up. Dan looks sleepy and soft and they're both so cute. But honestly, the entirety of it.
THE TREE: the fact that Dan wears Phil's shirt in the first bit, then Phil wears it the next day. I know that did not go through the wash in the meantime.
Millionaires: obviously calling Kath and Dan being such a perfect son in law.
Christmas adventure: again all the bits with Kath. We need more Kath content.

3. Dan and Phil haven't given us much festive content aside from Gamingmas in the recent years. Why do you think they don't do Christmas baking/vlogs/etc more often?
At this point I believe they like to keep the season to themselves because they enjoy it so much and don't want it to be shared with us past the gaming videos. I do wish they'd give us another ditl though.

4. What's your #1 wish for :festivedeppy: in 2019?
I'm not going to impress anyone, but I agree with other posters - FOREVER HOME! Stop throwing away your money and put it into a mortgage. <3

5. Which one was better - the DITL or THE TREE?
This is a silly question (well done Monika) since it was obviously the DITL, but THE TREE made me feel soft as heck.

And one of the new ones:
1. They still have almost all the same tree decorations as in 2010 - laziness or nostalgia?
NOSTALGIA! These boys are nostalgic as heck and keep so many little mementos. I'm not sure how these two even found each other. My ex didn't remember our anniversary or my birthday. Meanwhile, Dan keeps a piece of paper from 2009. :lol:

Ughhh yes, just yes. This is their first proper Christmas tree I think, and they're all happy and excited and Dan is purposefully being an annoying cute lil baby and Phil loves it. I love their old dynamic, it was all sorts of sweet and just cute.

Ummmm excuse me WHO GAVE YOU PERMISSION??
Yes, this is really the one constant, isn't it? They've had fun together since day one. Especially those early videos make me marvel at how at ease they are with each other (even if it's obviously so much more now). Honestly, Dan calling them soulmates during II was not far off. I mean... they're pretty much the definition. (and this is mushy af and brings nothing to the conversation but I'm still affected by the latest video)

This just made me feel soft over the fact that in 2016, Dan had known Kath for ~6-7 years? and definitely reached a level of comfort with Phil's family. I'm not sure what I'm trying to say. I guess I mean that Phil's family is probably Dan's family in a way by now and it just makes me feel things. Also, Phil is truly his mother's child - she's so fun and has an amazing sense of humor. WE NEED MORE KATH CONTENT.

Phil has always been pretty creative with these things and Dan has been doing well in helping Phil harnessing that idea into a real thing. They could totally do it if they want to,
I like this because it makes me think of their varying levels of creativity and like, how they each have their own creative outlet. Am I wrong in thinking that a lot of the ideas for their new projects come from Phil? All the games and such? He has a very creative mind. What about Dan? How creative is Dan? I feel like his creativity is of a different kind from Phil.
Dan feels music and movies deeply and seems to find an outlet in expressing his emotions. Phil creates things to make others laugh. I don't know, this deserves more consideration than I can give at 3:20 am.
