Yes, last upload was a MONTH ago. I would have thought AmazingPhil and danisnotonfire would be the first two to be uploaded to, but instead we've had two gaming channel videos and then
one AmazingPhil vid - surely DINOF is next.
Re: the YouTubers react video - I definitely felt like the story was about her disability and less on the fact that she already released an absolutely hilarious interview. I don't really understand why people are all 'surprised' when people with disabilities/autism 'turn out' to be intelligent, interesting people in their own right - this is not news
There was a lot of sympathy and holding her up as a 'role model' for other people with autism/disabilities when there shouldn't be any pressure on people with disabilities to do things their impairment prevents them from doing - they should be supported to do things can and want to do not pushed into doing things they don't feel able to. I can't articulate what I mean very well, but I hope this came across right.
Although the threesome comment didn't get as much discussion as I had anticipated.
I was rewatching old liveshows yesterday and I really was struck by the change in attitude. To put it in the conventional terms:
2012 Dan: This is my Friend Phil, I know you all want to talk to my Friend so here he is my Friend that I houseshare with, how are you old buddy old pal?
2016 Dan: So me and Phil are going to have a threesome with Professor Oak
Please excuse my they are glued on and I can't get them off.[/offtopic]
