  • A hybrid between Ferris Beuller and Jeffery Dahmer, Jacob is a refreshing portrait of mild self indulgence combined with an contemplative ironic sense of preservation. What that means I don’t know, but I wish I did. I want to come over to your house too, but I don’t want to impose if you’ve already got company. I’ll come over later, when you’re asleep……………

  • Most endearing in a terrifying aw shucks kind of way. Jacob Burrell almost makes Loneliness look chic. (Why do I always lie when I post comments here?)

    No, really, lovely. Good cuddly fun. Makes me thirst for “Jesus Juice”. Can Jacob do the moonwalk? Just curious.

  • I too kept thinking that maybe he hadn’t changed his drawers in a while…there was definitely something about it. Ants in his pants, a rash, who knows what kinda things he might’ve picked up in the lab. Well delivered though, Burrell. Almost frightening how well.

  • An amusing vlog. It bored me immediately but then somehow kept my rapt attention.

    I want to talk about his dog, help him get closure!

    I want to “let him” but I’m afraid to. Gosh, that constant ass scratching would drive me crazy. Just watching made me worry about bugs or a rash jumping off him and into my computer. Any kids he came near to could infect their entire school with body lice.

    I liked the entirely black background. It really makes his presence commanding and accentuated.

    I hate green. Before I’d let him redecorate my livingroom, I’d insist he restyle his hair.

    I don’t want to seem vitriolic. He seems to be begging for abuse. I’m only trying to be helpful and to cheer everyone up.

  • I began scratching myself 8 seconds into his clip.I need shower now to wash all the blood off of me. Thanks a lot,Jacob.
