I haven't seen your store, but you should definitely make sweaters and shirts that just say "I'm A Beautiful Bastard"! That would be dope

Last Jedi was not a bad movie BUT a director that cared so little about what JJ started, a director that would rather thumb his nose as the legacy of Star Wars than embrace it, should NOT have been hired.

I think I've been watching since 2008. If not than then since 2009. I've definitely found some videos from 2009 that I remember watching. I don't remember the first vid I watched specifically, but it definitely was one with a picture of boobs in the thumbnail.

I've been watching since the cringe years back when you were still a fresh faced young man. The hoodies and backwards caps days. XD I'm aussie and use your show (plus other sources) to keep up to date on the world.

Sxephil, he's not sexy. Sxephil, he's S X E! I've been watching since the early, cringey years. I'm thinking 2008 or earlier. I don't remember the first show that I watched, but I remember being amazed by this new technology, and this crazy guy talking to me from his bedroom. I feel like we grew up to be less cringey adults together. I'm proud of us. High five!

TLJ is a better movie than TROS could ever be, it's different, bold, and INTERESTING. And to complain that something in TLJ doesn't matter then make a movie like TROS where NOTHING MATTERS is just stupid. TROS was a complete mess, JJ was more worried about pleasing the dudebros than making a good movie and it SHOWS. The movie is exhausting and takes no risks, except from taking the only risk nobody wanted to see (ERASING THE SKYWALKERS FROM EXISTENCE), it's generic, boring and makes little sense in about 90% of the scenes. Never thought 2020 would be the year John Boyega would reveal himself to be a douchbad dudebro. I'm ashamed to ever have stan this dude.

Remember how you used to have like a boobs or butt thumbnails for every video? You seemed like kind of a douche, but you did some coverage of a story I was looking into (Which one I have ZERO clue) and that was my introduction. Definitely didn't feel like your content was really *for* me, But I ended up watching several videos for a few hot takes before eye-rolling out of there. And then years later.... I came across a new video suggested as a result of a story you covered that I guess I had been watching other coverage on (And once again I have no recollection of what that was) But I was totally blown away by how much you had (sorry to sound condescending) grown up. Your approach, covering news from a balanced perspective and still ensuring you put weight on facts over falsehoods, while adding your own genuine personal reaction as an aside, struck me as pretty rad and freakishly *reasonable*. It was worlds apart from early content, but still retained some of that same casual vibe - still you, but a more conscientious version the same person. I remember thinking your take on some news piece in the video was bassackwards as heck, and I totally disagreed with it, But it didn't matter, because I don't watch media to be spoon fed my own opinions. I had been subbed ever since And the growth (not just scale but actual meaningful growth) of your channel continues to make me feel just a teensy bit better about the human race on the reg. (Youtube seems to have unsubbed me because the free market has dictated we can't have nice things anymore, but I'm gonna fix that now. Was wondering why I stopped getting PhillyD videos in my feed.) Happy 2020, Philip DeFranco fam.

Star wars episode 1-3 "how badass and awesome Darth Vader is" episode 4-6 " luke sky walkers rise to defeat the most badass ever" episode 7-9 "who cares about luke skywalker he is mostly missing" the problem with the newest additions is we never get to see the skywalker that was the most powerful force used ever, just run around proving how bad ass he is!!!!!

"Wow the misogynistic fandom is filled with toxic white males" - Feminists and SJWs A relationship doesn't happen in a movie where relationships were never a thing and mean nothing "We didn't get our way with a silly ship, so let's threaten the disney employees" - Those same feminists and SJWs. Once again they project what they are guilty of.

From Alberta, Canada. I can't remember the first video I saw but I started watching in 2011 I think. A buddy linked me your video so it shows up yearly in my facebook memories if I catch it. Love how much thought and effort you put into news stories even if it means you can't "report" on it right away because you don't want to spread false information. It's taught me to not take headlines as facts.

i’ve been watching phil since i was 12-13(?) in the 8th grade. i remember the monkey intros, babe of the day segments, the “edgy” jokes that my underdeveloped hormonal self lived for, one of the first videos i remember seeing was about paris hilton saying the n word lmao,,, i’m 22 now took a few years off around senior year of hs to first year of college but it’s been a ride lol

I know I'm commenting a week late, but dang Phil I cant believe I've been watching you for most of my life. I started watching in middle school in 2008 when you were in Atlanta I believe it was, it was right before the colorful wall of clocks haha! I remember one of the very first videos I watched was you getting a mysterious key to a storage locker and I have wondered what was in that locker ever since! Thanks for all the years of giving me something to look forward to after school and my first look into alternative thinking from the general population. #ronpaul08

I've been with you for about 11 years now. And I've been down for the Nation before you started calling it the Nation. I've around since before Lindsey and your first world tour, which was epic. Since SXEphil wasn't sexy. You've been a great part of my life and I thank you so much. It's been fun to watch you grow and I look forward to many many more years of great news and growth with you. :o)

Been following Philip DeFranco aka Sxephil on and off for quite some time. I think I remember the clocks on the wall in Atlanta (I think) as one of the first videos I saw.... Anyway, I agree with your content most of the time but we are all different so if I don't agree I'll make a comment and is of course ignored as too many comments all the time :) Oh, and I reside in New York but am originally from Sweden :D

I'm from Scotland and I don't remember the first video I watched but I remember seeing you on YouTubers react to being rickrolled and your "triple bastard" reaction to the second one just really made me laugh so I thought I'd check you out and I've been watching fairly regularly ever since. Although I do have vague memories of your "get off the internet" thanksgiving video but I think I might have seen that on bebo if you can believe it. I don't always agree with you and I like that you don't create an atmosphere where I feel like I HAVE to agree in order to watch your videos and be part of the community. It's nice so thanks!

More people means higher risk. These facilities are not a no one in no one out situation. “Staff” leave, which only eases the ability to spread a virus. Not vaccinating immediately puts everyone at risk. 🙄

I honestly can’t remember what year I subscribed but I think it was around the time that SFnerd got to 1 million subs...I think.lol. I started watching you tubers react on fbe and thought you were neat, looked you up, and stayed around for a while. I have no idea when my first episode of the show was but it had me hooked. This Alabamian laments her stereotype along with the rest of my likeminded fellows.

I don't know what the first video of yours that I watched was, but I distinctly remember that the first time I ever heard of you was in a video posted by zeldaxlover64 AKA Christina Grimmie, who won a competition you were doing for a date with someone related to your channel or something, I don't remember that much exactly. I came to your channel after she posted the video about winning that competition and I've watched nearly every video on this channel since then

Greetings from Norway! :D You was the first ever youtuber I subscribed to and your content fueled my YouTube-addiciton. I was 13 years old, and sxephil had just over 40k subs. Phil was still living at campus and I remember his cheesy shell-necklace and fake diamond earring. I remember downloading the sound to the "how i met my girlfriend"-video to my phone and listening to it on my way home from school. Been watching for over 11 years and will continue to do so :)
