What Boys Look For in Girls

We all want to be appreciated…but initial attraction isn’t really based in reality. There’s a really huge audience of very young women on YouTube, and I’m really worried about them basing their self-worth on whether they appeal to guys. That seems to be how the world is set up. I’m a dude, of course, so I’m basing this on what I’ve seen on YouTube and IRL, but I don’t think I’m crazy.

I should have said in the video…this isn’t meant to be relationship advice. There are lots of good people out there with whom to have relationships, but what they’re “looking for” doesn’t necessarily correspond with what they actually want or need. That “love at first sight” moment is pretty much the least interesting moment of a relationship (despite being one of the most exciting.)

I was injured recently and ended up spending a lot of time in bed… So I went ahead and redid one of my older posts.
I like to marathon hank games when I’m bedridden.

The Great Goose Migration

I’m not even joking…this video is actually about me and my wife going to the Rocky Mountain Front to observe migrating geese and I AIN’T EVEN SORRY!

The Music is a song by The Leewards that was never released to the public. They’re a band that a friend of mine was in from 2001 to 2005, you can get their second album on Bandcamp for free (or pay for it, because it’s great http://leewards.bandcamp.com/.) This song was on their first album, which was never released so, like, only a few dozen people have ever heard this song before.

And now, because of this video, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people will hear it! That’s REALLY WEIRD!

I find it very strange that there is so much wonderful music in the world that no one will ever hear again….just lost…forever…like a goose in the wind. ALL WE ARE IS GEESE IN THE WIND!

So far, almost 400 of you have lent your names and voices to the cause, and that is awesome, but we need MORE SIGNATURES! Help get the word out, y’all. Persuade Hank to sing the same song 30 times.

Sexual Abuse, Consent, and Culture

If you haven’t heard, there have been some really troubling stories about manipulative and even possibly abusive relationships between online creators and their fans.

While that situation certainly spurred me to make this video, I also think a video like this is long overdo. We’re excited to be facing these problems head-on, because the only way out is through.

Thanks to our task force for helping me edit this video and make sure I wasn’t too clumsy with the work, especially to Sahitya.

Here are some resources put together by the task force:

July 18, 2007: Accio Deathly Hallows

In 2007, Hank Green made HISTORY with his debut of the original Accio Deathly Hallows. YouTube hasn’t been the same since.

To celebrate this momentous achievement in online video, FYNF is aligning itself with the Harry Potter Alliance to get Hank to sing this song every day in the month of April. We call it Vlog Accio Deathly Hallows Every Day in April (VADHEDA). 

Sign the petition! Make history matter!

Introducing our latest campaign… VADHEDA.
Many of you may be familiar with the popular YouTube trend of vlogging every day in April (VEDA). Hank Green himself is a regular participant of VEDA, but this year, we’re giving Hank a special focus for VEDA and requesting that he vlog his anthemic masterpiece, “Accio Deathly Hallows,” every day of the month of April. 
It is a song that speaks to the enduring power of literature, our cultural need for story, and the magic that resides in our own hearts. Some say that this song – with its overt calls to magically spread books throughout the world – may have even inspired our Accio Books! Campaign, an annual event where fans have come together to donate over 100,000 books to underprivileged readers.
It’s an important song in the canon of popular culture: so important that it merited four different inclusions on Hank Green’s debut album, So Jokes (2008). And since that precipitous debut, Hank has performed the song in many different incarnations, each one independently gratifying, yet collectively failing to satiate the core needs of the Nerdfighting community: the need for an entire month to be dedicated to this singular musical triumph.
It is time.
Time for Hank Green to Vlog Accio Deathly Hallows Every Day in April.
When Hank sings “I wish it didn’t have to end at all,” he’s not merely referencing the end of the book series. He is challenging our culture’s notion of finality with regard to story. Hank understands that these books don’t end when the metaphorical curtains close. No, these stories are only just beginning. They are ours to continue and ours to live.
If you believe in the power of song, of story, of community, of humanity, please sign this petition asking Hank Green to Vlog Accio Deathly Hallows Every Day In April. Together, we can make a difference.

This is something that I endorse. Wholeheartedly. Please sign the petition. It’s for the greater good. 
Versions I look forward to seeing Hank Perform this April:
Accio Deathly Hallows (Hand Inside the Puppet Head) feat. Neil Cicierega as Harry Potter
Accio Deathly Hallows (musique concrète)
Accio Deathly Hallows (Harryoke)
Accio Deathly Hallows (acid jazz) 
Accio Deathly Hallows (Amazon.com remix)
Accio Deathly Hallows (MMMBop) feat. Zac Hanson 
Please either reblog with more suggestions or include them in the comments section of the petition. I know Hank will definitely take them seriously.
