This is a timeline of the career of AmazingPhil and his YouTube colleagues. I spent about 6 hours doing research and checking the validity, so it should be pretty accurate, including the dates. Most of the information on here is first hand (from the Youtuber them self). However, some information is second or third hand, so it may not be completely reliable, especially when it comes to relationships. Anyway, here it is:
???? - Phil starts a blog/service on MySpace where he offers advice on photo editing and talks about his life.
27th March 2006 - Phil wins a black and white disposable camera in a box of cornflakes, and makes his first video on his new Youtube channel AmazingPhil. He mentions his blog, and talks about the things he has been doing recently, such as going on holiday to California. After this he continues making small videos and skits with his university friends.
21st August 2006 - Chris Kendall joins YouTube under the name of Crabstickz
August 2007 - Stephen Byrne starts making comedy videos on YouTube under the name of 3sixty5days.
5th October 2007 - PJ Liguori joins YouTube under the name of KickThePJ
14th June 2008 - Charlie Casey joins youtube as CharlieSkies.
15th September 2008 - the series ‘ApartmentRED’ begins on Youtube and TV with a friend of Phil’s, Stephen, playing himself. Stephen appears in some of Phil’s videos and the two are rumoured to have been dating around that time, although it is quite unlikely that this is true.
16th January 2009 - Phil creates a collaborative Youtube channel with Charlie Casey (aka CharlieSkies) called Pabloislove. They form a close bond and although it was never confirmed by Phil, Charlie claims that they dated.
10th March 2009 - Pabloislove is discontinued and the only means by which Charlie and Phil openly communicate is via Twitter. It was supposedly due to an unexplained argument between the two, so it is probably safe to assume that they broke up at this point.
15th April 2009 - Musician, actor and artist PJ Liguori (aka KickThePJ) appears on the ApartmentRED. Phil meets PJ through Stephen and they become friends. PJ’s friend, Chris Kendall (aka CrabStickz) also befriends Phil.
June 2009 - Stephen Byrne and Charlie Casey start dating. Charlie posts about getting together with Stephen on Twitter. Sources close to both Stephen and Charlie say that the relationship was abusive, with Charlie often hurting Stephen. He ignored him, manipulated, and insulted him, leading to arguments, which lead to violence from Charlie.
June 2009 - Phil notices his devoted fan, Dan Howell. They discover they have a lot in common and become internet friends.
16th October 2009 - Dan creates a new Youtube channel named Danisnotonfire
24th October 2009 - Phil meets up with Dan in Manchester whilst his parents are away and Dan stays for the weekend with Phil.

So I met Janet Varney and PJ Byrne over the weekend at havencon. I’m pretty sure I’ve exhausted all the positive words in the dictionary trying to describe my experience but I really can’t praise this con enough..
Before I got in front of the line, Janet called out my shirt lol. She pointed at me and said, “I love your shirt!” It’s by Drakyx btw who is pretty popular within the Korrasami fandom.
When I got there, they asked for my name (Lira;
I spell it out for them to get a visual.), which they liked and felt like Bryke would like and use as a character. I then asked that if they do, to base it off of me. You know, small talk. I showed them my drawing for Janet to sign. I wish I’d gotten PJ’s autograph too but I didn’t want him to just sign a Team Avatar picture. :\ I like my stuff more personalized. I didn’t even have time to ink and color Korrasami. I hope I get to meet him again.
We get to my drawing for Janet to autograph but she misspelled my name by writing “Lyr”. By that time there were plenty of “I’m sorry”, “I’m gonna fix it” and “I got this” from Janet’s side and a lot of laughter from PJ. But hey, she worked it out. She told me we were now girlfriends (which I didn’t understand until I saw the Lira + Janet Varney later on lol). We took the photo which they said was perfect since I was right in the middle where the light shone. I pointed out that it’s like the spirit portal and they agreed.
Mike and I ran into Jack De Sena, the voice of Sokka from ATLA, who is at the studio reading for a different project. Then we ran into PJ Byrne, the voice of Bolin. Then we made an ATLA/LOK funny man sandwich with co-creator bread.
Ripping off Mike and Janet’s post, PJ, Round Pabu, Obscured Naga, Fancy Pabu, and I are here to remind you to watch The Legend of Korra Book 3 Premiere tomorrow, Friday, June 27 on Nickelodeon at 7:00 pm Eastern/Pacific time! Three new episodes back to back!
Hanging out with PJ Byrne, the fantastic voice of Bolin, backstage at New York Comic Con. The Korra panel was awesome. The fans were great! We had such a good time. Thanks for a great convention already. Heading to the signing momentarily.
