Jorm (formerly known as Jormuntaries) is a former commentator on YouTube. He is known for his cynical, straight-to-the-point style of commentating and dry sense of humor.
Jorm started out in commentating in 2010 under the name "87XCommentaries" to a somewhat mixed reception. He abandoned the name in 2011 after losing the motivation to do commentaries. He returned to commentaries under the name "Jormuntaries" in 2012 after finding the drive to make them again after his laptop was broken for an extended period of time and had to resort to using his PS3.
After uploading some commentaries that received something of a lukewarm to positive reception, he abandoned commentaries once again in early 2013 and focused on poorly-made vlog videos. He returned once again to commentaries in October 2014 after finding the ambition to do them once again. Despite a rocky start, he steadily built up a reputation as a somewhat competent commentator. He worked on two co-op commentaries with transgender, now-former commentator, MDXLR. Since then, he has befriended the likes of MDXLR, OrphanOfTheMoon and Evan Yeagy, who, along with Jorm (except Evan) were members of the commentary group, The B-Team.
On November 21, 2015, Jorm left The B-Team. However, he has said that he will continue and finish Episode 3. His reasons for leaving were both a desire to focus on his new Aftermath Commentaries and personal reasons. However, later that same day, he rejoined the B-Team.
In December 2015, Jorm retired from making Commentaries due to community drama and personal reasons and left the B-Team, which in turn led to Episode 3 being canceled. To this day, he still regrets making this decision.
He returned with a video on Sky News on February 1, 2016. After seven months of a small number of lackluster (in his own view) commentaries. On September 1, 2016, Jorm retired from making commentaries again and has said that he is done for good this time.
On February 8, 2017, around six months after retiring from doing commentaries, he has announced on Twitter that he would be returning to doing commentaries in March under the name "Above The Surface". He has also said on several occasions that it would feature an 80s/Vaporwave aesthetic. He said that he changed his mind and that what he needed was a long break, not retirement.
On September 2017, he decided to retire from commentaries again, privating almost all of his commentaries in the process.
