Project for Awesome Nerdfighter Music Compilation!

effyeahnerdfighters:

Hey nerdfighters. As you know, the Project for Awesome is coming up (on December 17th!) and we at vlogbrothers headquarters are working very hard to make sure this year’s P4A is a great one.

This year, we would like to include a new kind of perk, kind of like the Nerdfighter Art perk, but with music!

We are looking for any and all songs by nerdfighters, about nerdfighteria. These songs will be collected and formatted into a compilation album (or compilation albumS, depending on how many submissions come in) that will be available for purchase as a downloadable perk as part of the Project for Awesome Indiegogo campaign. Money will be raised for charity. People will be able to acquire lots of great nerdfighter music. Super cool stuff.

Read on for submission guidelines and the like.

  • All songs must be either about nerdfighteria, about any/all of John’s books, or covers of Hank’s songs.
  • Artist name & song title must be included with your submission. You may also include a link to your music on the web (bandcamp, itunes, etc), and any other text about the song you like.
  • Songs must be submitted in as high a quality as possible; lossless files (AIFF, WAV) are preferred.
  • Submit all songs via wetransfer to valerie@nerdfighteria.com with “P4A MUSIC” included somewhere in the message.
  • Submissions will be accepted until November 1st, 2014.
  • Multiple submissions are very much allowed, but please send them in one at a time!
  • We will reach out to those whose songs are selected for the compilation to confirm their inclusion no later than December 1st.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at valerie@nerdfighteria.com. We’re very excited to listen to all the lovely things you make!

DFTBA

- Valerie & Michael

Reminder! This is a thing!

WIN MY KIDNEY!
Not my actual Kidney. 
Danny Weinkauf has, for like 15 years, been the bassist for They Might Be Giants. He wrote their song “I’m a Paleontologist" which you may have heard…he’s also won two grammies and written and produced music for dozens of TV shows. So when he was like "Hey, I’m doing a children’s album, do  you want to write a song with me?" I was like "GHGHHFHFHHDHWWW!"
So, together we wrote “The Kidney That Lived in Four People" which is the (semi) true story of a Kidney that existed inside of four different bodies (so far). The names have been changed, everything else is true.
A couple weeks ago, we decided it would be cool to hold a little contest.
So, for all filmmakers, animators, artists, and etc…if you’d like to create a music video for the song, the winner (as selected by us) and three runners up will win this very nice Kidney model signed by me and Danny. The top submission will have their video posted on Hankschannel and Danny’s YouTube channel. 
You can get Danny’s full album “No School Today” on Amazon and iTunes and most other places where music comes from.
Full information on the contest is here.

Reminder! Entries are due by October 30th!

There’s just over a month left to submit your entries for the kidney music video contest!

The Oculus Rift is Freakin Me Out 

In which Hank announces the launch of GAMES WITH HANK!

Also, thanks to all of you spending time watching pre-rolls, we’re giving money away to independent creators! The first to grant recipients are:

Kelly Kend | Physics Girl

My interview with Kelly is on HanksChannel

Meet Kelly, The First Recipient of a Nerdfighter Indie Creator Grant

http://www.kellykend.com

So Vlogbrothers started running pre-rolls more than a month ago, so we’ve had the first lump of money come in. The biggest chunk of the first payment (and probably a fairly large chunk of the second one) will be going to Kelly Kend to help her work on her documentary “Yeah, Maybe No” which is about consent and sexual abuse.

Just by chance, I was at the same conference as Kelly last weekend so we got to hang out (and I can confirm that she is very smart, very nice, and very well informed on this topic.) 

She’s a survivor herself, and just an all around awesome person, and Nerdfighteria is responsible for the money she now has to finish her documentary.

John Green is such an inspiration! I’m glad he sees the magic in reading and shares/encourages everyone to seek the experience.
