A late Video Monday Blog

I was at the Northwest YouTube gathering in Portland this weekend, so I wasn't around to post a blog with videos. There were actually quite a few nerdfighters at the gathering, and lots of fun times were had. :)

Last week, Alex Day (Nerimon) announced a DFTBA Records contest involving making a music… Continue

Gay Is Not an Insult

Vote for the Vlogbrothers for Mr. Youtube!

Jennifer is still on vacation, so this week I'm going to feature DOUBLE the number of threads! WOO!


Vlogbrothers for Mr. Youtube!

I physically featured this thread back on Wednesday, but that's because I didn't want to wait for it to get more exposure. The nerdfighters are definitely not as numerous as some of the other big names, and Shane Dawson (is that his name?) seems to be WAY… Continue

Harry Potter: The Musical


I don't know how many of you have heard about this, but no matter what, it's not enough. This is just... the most brilliant thing I've ever seen. This is a thing of beauty. Mugglenet mentioned it on their website, and I feel the Harry Potter nerdfighters NEED to be told about this.

Ladies and gentlemen, nerds, and… Continue

Retweeting Iran

There's a tweeter on twitter who thought of having their followers change their location/time zone to Iran and retweet all their tweets in order to help spread the news and fight the censors. I don't use twitter, but that is a damn good idea.

It's picture time!

I finished my exams, and now I'm free at last! (At least for a month and a half or so, after which I'll have to start studying for the exams I'll have to retake.)

But anyway, again it's been two weeks since I blogged about pictures, so without further ado: …

"It was the logical choice"

After the attack by the rogue Romulan mining ship captain, Nero, destroyed the Vulcan home world, the few remaining survivors found themselves directionless and disenfranchised. In the course of a day, a once intergalactic superpower was reduced to a small handful of nomads. Some wondered whether this would be the end of the race altogether. But the Vulcans are a resilient people, and not to be underestimated. With no world, or, indeed, even a nation to speak of, the refugees banned together… Continue

The Reason for WorldSuck

Where did WorldSuck come from? What is the root? Some say greed, some say original sin, but why does the world suck so much sometimes? And how do we fix it?

"Zombies!" - an original song (with accompanying video about the stick-men zombie apocalypse)

In my last video I asked viewers to vote on what song they wanted to hear today - one about Disney, one about zombies or one about Dr Who. It was close, but zombies clinched it by one vote. So here is my first original song (to be uploaded to the internet - I had written a few before this one). Enjoy! (lyrics and chords can be found on the YouTube page - click the video twice)

So that's that then. Hope you enjoyed it!

Seeing as the thumbnail is a… Continue
