He's my favourite person alive.

He's up there for me.

He's my conduit into experiencing this modern phenomenon of a "social media personality" that you feel intimately connected with despite never meeting.

I stick his Twitch on sometimes just in the background, not even really watching it, just somehow comforting.
 
What I love is his integrity, and his absolute faith in the value of his own weirdness without ever disappearing up how own arse. He hates all the right people too, and the right accents.

yes I love it too, very relaxing, there's no pressure to make it entertaining, for anything to happen, then a certain question or something happens in the game and he's off on one

His review of Random Access Memories always makes me laugh

Watch “Limmy 188 - ” RAM Live Review. ” 13/05/13” on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/66155376?ref

Especially with all the nauseating hyperbole surrounding that release/Daft Punk at the time.

For me the only valuable thing is his Twitter. The comedy stuff is mosty terrible. He needs a more direct conduit. And that's Twitter. I love the trolling. I also love the way he treats his mental illness I think that's been very influential. More so than he's given credit for. He was able to make a connection to thousands and thousands of men that wouldn't have responded to anyone else. He's definitely a hero.

No his perfect format was vine! RIP. Completely agree that he doesn't work in long-form, the shows can get tedious, some great sketches but he needs an editor... it's funny he hates the word 'narrative' and took the piss out of it for ages, because its his pitfall. He's best at surreal shorts. Also agree the frankness on suicidality and mental health has been brilliant, the opposite to a lot of the solemn self-aggrandising chat that's so prevalent.

Yeah I'm not all that interested in the limmy show - although I've liked bits of it a lot. It's funny how that stuff, which once would have been the be all and end all of his career, actually now seems extraneous to it.

The fact he was pushing at the boundaries of it so much might have indicated that it was a frame he didn't need.
 
It’s got some brilliant bits… dee dee, Jacqueline, “margaret that’s yer nephew”, am still trippin, weans against us, party chat. But some absolutely shite bits… the white collar crime, the soup, the weird bits where he breaks the fourth wall and makes some boring observation. He needs a good editor, but I think if someone told him something doesn’t work he’d be even more inclined to pursue it
