Beneath an Abandoned Hospital: Thoughts from Places

In which John visits an abandoned hospital, and the steam tunnels beneath it, with his friends Ransom Riggs (author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children) and Elyse Marshall. This is as close to a horror movie as a vlogbrothers video will ever be.

The 5 Worst Typos Ever

In which John, having discovered an (inevitable) mistake in The Fault in Our Stars, discusses his list of the five worst typographical errors and grammatical mistakes in the history of the English language, from the Bible to Shakespeare.

What Happened This Time?

A very good question. Wish I had an answer.



Well, Wednesday night we had the Scoop investigation. I almost didn't want to wake up for my Thursday class. The rest of my day was spent trying to sleep, but not succeeding. Still managed to go to bed early that night (without blogging, but I did vlog for my collab channel. Does that count?):





Friday I had 8a.m classes. Fun. Then I came home, filmed a bit for my vlog this coming week, cleaned the house in… Continue

How Time Does Sneak Away

No blog yesterday. Sorry about that.



Time literally got away from me. I had plans to attend the Guttermouth show at the Soapbox (because it's rare that a recognizable name band plays in Wilmington), but I neglected to keep a decent track of the date.



It was last night.



I realized this after a day of errands (and Bill's BlogTV show) when my friend Amanda posted a Guttermouth video to her FB page saying "singing along to this tonight."



Of course, I… Continue

I Ain't 'Fraid O' No Ghosts!

I'm trying to remember if I've mentioned Research Paranormal in this blog.



Well, there is a paranormal research and investigations team in Wilmington called Research Paranormal and I am a part of this team.



We've been investigating for a few years now and have found some interesting evidence. We have EVP, a… Continue

The Obligatory Shameless Plug

If you'll indulge me, I'd like to take a moment to talk about my ongoing projects with Youtube.



Now, people who know me are up to date on my video projects, but anyone who just reads the blog has no idea what I've been up to for the past few months (the sounds of silence often speaks volumes). Well, first I'd like to talk about VidCon.



VidCon was an… Continue

Biannual Blog

Time for my biannual blog post on the Ning! A lot has happened in my life since December. I graduated (!) with my Specialist degree and can officially call myself a "therapist." It's wild, growing up. But now I feel (and have been feeling for a while now) too old for Nerdfighteria. When the Brotherhood began (started watching just a few months after the vlog began), I seemed to be right on track in terms of age and interests of the community, but everything seems to be getting younger...maybe… Continue

Corruption of Evidence - Untitled Work in Progress

Yeah, I think we all knew the blog a week was a pipe dream. I'm going to try again starting now, but honestly classes have been kicking my butt.



Anyway, for some time now I've been meaning to write an entry for The Tenth Daughter of Memory blog. For some reason, I've had a massive mental block when it comes to writing. Ideas come easy, but I can't decide how to write it up. This is my entry…

Civil Unions vs. Gay Marriage: Which is the Better Option?

Earlier this quarter (school quarter, not fiscal), our assignment in English was to write a speech on a controversial topic. I assume you know what I chose, since you probably clicked on this post because of the title. I'm posting this here on the Ning for a number of reasons:



1. I think it's something Nerdfighters would be interested in reading

2. Two of John's videos are listed as sources

3. Something I haven't thought of yet.



So, without further (well, a… Continue

Statistician's Homesick Blues

Some of you might be familiar with the STATZ RAP video from the group at Univ. Oregon. A group of us first-year grad students at Univ. of Illinois at Chicago got together and made a quick video about our grad-level statistics & research methods course:





Some lines are inside jokes, some are stats jokes, but most of it… Continue

Help me Nerdfighters!

Dearest Nerdfighters,



I have come to you for a favor. I'm an Anthropology major and for one my classes I have to write a mini ethnography. What's an ethnography you ask? In the most simplest way it's research on a particular community/culture. Instead of living with a community for a year+, you study/research a community for about a month or two, which is what I am doing. I've decided that nothing would be more interesting than study you guys. This community. If you look at my… Continue

Racist Biology?

History has proven that if someone has a racist agenda, they'll sometimes go about any means to achieve it, even if that means going so far and being so N00bish as to base some of their arguments on biology. Europeans used it as an excuse to enslave Africans and commit mass genocides targeting Native Americans; the Nazis used it as a reason for exterminating the Jews; etc. So am I racist when I say that Native Americans have a harder time with allergies and have a higher rate of diabetes and… Continue
