    Watching this video as an autistic person has made me so emotional. To see people genuinely uplifting and celebrating neurodivergent traits instead of the usual bullying and discrimination that we face gives me a lot of hope. You’re doing a damn good thing, Kurtis.

    As an autistic adult who has just entered the world of negativity that is adulthood, this video was like a warm, cozy blanket for me. It’s always been a struggle finding places where I belong because I am someone who expresses myself very openly because societal norms can kiss my ass. I have often faced negativity for being passionate about my interests and going on long rambles about them. So watching James just be himself and not be ashamed of his passions was so nice to see for a change. Thank you, Kurtis. This was a much needed video and definitely one of my favorites. Keep up the good work, man. This was incredible.

  5. Jay Wentz says:

    i’m autistic and often get made fun of for being passionate about things i’m super interested in. so seeing james so unapologetically passionate about all this makes me so happy. he’s just himself and does what he wants and doesn’t care what other people think. it’s nice to see more people like him.

    • PixelPrincess says:

      Seriously, I’ve been down lately… and honestly just seeing how passionate he is and HAPPY it just gives me a littttttle bit more hope. (:

    • Jasmin Habib says:

      same here, and honestly i felt a lil worried this whole thing was a prank just based on the way ppl usually treat ppl like him so it was so genuinely nice to see how incredibly supportive kurtis and everyone was of him, and like you said just seeing him be so unapologetically passionate and not giving a fuck about what others think. gave me hope bc i just feel like i have so many passions and ppl are annoyed by it. but like who cares hey, lets be ourselves

    • Straightoutthebushes says:

      Fellow neurodivergent and this is exactly how I felt , I hope you keep pursuing your special interests

    • Blank says:

      Never feel ashamed for being passionate about things you like. Do know your audience tho, people have their own interests and it isn’t fair from our side of we keep blabbering about a topic they are clearly not interested in.

    • Miriam Khalil says:

      Omg same it hurts when people cut your flow

  6. Susie ? says:

    I really appreciate how blunt James is about what he wants and isn’t afraid to say “no that’s wrong”. So many smaller creators let other people steamroll over their vision but he refuses to dilute himself for anyone. We need more people like that. Just raw, unfiltered, pure joy and passion

  7. Serena says:

    Watching him teach you guys his dance literally put tears in my eyes, it was just so sweet. Pure fun and silliness. Very genuine. Almost like releasing your inner child.

  8. please says:

    james honestly seems so sweet. we must protect him at all costs.

  9. Emmalynn Erard says:

    what a lovely break from all the negativity on the internet!! it’s not my type of music but i can’t help loving the energy you guys brought! i hope you both keep making music

  10. PirateGurl114 says:

    James give me the same feeling I had as a preteen discovering Lemon Demon and Neil Cicierga for the first time online. That joy and passion for just creating is incredibly inspiring, it makes me want to get out there and be creative again. Thanks Kurtis for showing us this awesome human, and thank you James for being so unapologetically you!!
