edit: oh, page 101 - is someone going to make a new thread?

At this rate they’ll start calling him Limdog Millionaire!

(I haven’t seen the leak)

I love you for referencing this, excellent call back.

Limmy's tweets just now have absolutely levelled me.

Can't share screens atm.

I think Limmy's nice. He reads out all sub messages, seems to care and is funny. ~ the end ~

actually not the end.  his streams during the early part of the year really helped when going through horrible horrible mental health problems and life problems, just having a funny nice man fuck about and entertain for a few hours every day was a good distraction.

He's great, not sure where the hate from MrMrs is coming from.

I think the nasty, depressing attitude bit is the fact he's a glasweigan and has lived there all his life. Part of his act is amplifying that up for laughs. So he isn't really adopting that attitude as such, more thats the culture of where he's from.

Anyone that gives it the 'Limmy is dreadful and hateful' pish is either an idiot or has been banned from following them but can't let it go.

Limmy's always been a bit nasty or angry when he's streaming, even in the ancient stuff. I think it's part persona, part real, but either way, it's all part of the fun too.
I'm kinda glad he does because hopefully it'll stop people developing parasocial relationships with him if he keeps shooting them down.

He's channelling that now fading Glasgow culture. The dark underbelly of the city, bitter, angry but worldly wise and amazingly funny with it. Stick the heid on you then buy you a pint afterwards as william mcilvanney wrote in Laidlaw.

The bits he does on funerals are great examples of that. The bit he did with the junkie stumbling into a funeral, "whit cunts deid, HA HA". It's a caricature of the sorts of people who do exist, and have a great sense of humour with it. I've known people and been in situations not entirely dissimilar to what he talks about.

I guess it's slightly jarring seeing him in his nice house with his great life earning a lot of money saying these things, but it's coming from the culture he grew up around rather than being a bitter and twisted edgelord.
