Can we all just pause for a moment and imagine how different our lives might be if John had decided not to buy a camcorder on this day seven years ago? I don’t think I could ever thank him or Hank enough for starting Brotherhood 2.0 and deciding that filming themselves and uploading it onto the internet all those years ago was a good idea.

  • John, March 1, 2007: Hey, Hank, something just occurred to me. Did I never get you a wedding present? If so, please put the word 'myriad' in your next video.
  • Hank, March 2, 2007: Liz S. says that 'myriad' is one of her favorite words. And I wanted her to know that it comes from the Greek 'myriados', meaning ten thousand, and that I didn't get you a wedding present either.

OMG I JUST LEARNED WHERE THE ORIGINAL VLOGBROTHERS INTRO TUNE CAME FROM

hahahahahahaha, a couple things.

  1. I didn’t even know I had this song, I got it along with a bunch of other stuff from my girlfriend.
  2. This is further proof that John and Hank Green are brilliant.  The choice of their intro song is a subtle reference that could be easily overlooked and nothing is lost by passing it by, but if you understand the reference you realize that it fits perfectly.
  3. Listening to this song for a second time, “as our December sun is setting.”  did they commission this song!? haha.

I love unexpected discoveries such as these, both unknown songs in my iTunes and connections not previously seen.

THE BROTHERHOOD 2.0 DVD BOX SET KICKSTARTER

Hello, Nerdfighters!

We over here at FYNF HQ have been sitting on this idea for a while - producing and distributing Brotherhood 2.0 on DVD, through DFTBA Records!

TWO brothers

ONE video blog

365 days of textless communcation

John and Hank have decided not to communicate except through video blogs for an entire year…. AND THEY DON’T MIND IF YOU WATCH THEM DO IT!

Brotherhood 2.0 was the original project of the vlogbrothers, when John and Hank uploaded videos every weekday for the entire year of 2007. This DVD set will contain 720+ minutes of video, covering everything from the heartbreaking tale of John’s eye surgery to Hank’s song about Helen Hunt that shocked the community. Witness the birth of the Nerdfighter community in this six-disc set!

There was a time before crashcourse and the Lizzie Bennet Diaries; before DFTBA Records and Final Cut Pro and high-definition camcorders. Let’s take a trip in the Way Back Machine and experience Brotherhood 2.0 the way it was never meant to be seen: on HD televisions!

This is something we’ve been trying to put into action for a long time now, and so, based on previous success, we’re trying out kickstarter to get this idea into action. Hopefully you all will be generous enough to support our venture, as well!

Policy and Politics: Brotherhood 2.0 Week Begins

In which John discusses the tax proposals of the two major candidates for President while arguing against the hysterical rhetoric that marks contemporary political discourse. This is the first of six consecutive daily videos Hank and I will be making to fulfill the first of our two outstanding punishments. Also discussed: the difference between ordinary income and capital gains, and the theory behind taxing capital gains at a lower rate than ordinary income (which both candidates favor, just to different degrees).

And thus, the Nerdfighters were born.

We bring the frackin’ pain.

“Can we just show it one more time-“

“for the people who might not have been watching earlier…”

“Maybe you went out to get a sandwich or somethin’ and-“

“There ahh— there he is ahh I love it! THANK YOU GOD MOST FOR THIS AMAZING PICTURE OF HANK.”
