My eighth favorite podcast, French the Llama, will be a bit late this week. It will air tomorrow evening.
Thank you for your patience.
Here’s the video we’re talking about today.
Here’s the batman argument songified.
I’ve seen the brother’s dad in real life at vidcon and they’ve been in videos but it’\s actually hard to find a picture. Here’s the best I could do. They seem very nice so don’t harass them.
The Proclaimers used to look like this:
Now they look like this:
Here’s the video for the Walk 500 Miles Song
Here’s the raisin scene in Benny and Joon
The Cursed Child Movie is NOT a THING. It was a convincing April Fools joke that somehow missed us and, as Jasmine makes clear in the episode, she saw the poster but wasn’t terribly clear on details. To be fair, she is a very busy person and doesn’t follow very much media at all. My vague thought that it seemed like a Rick Roll is because I was definitely Rick Rolled with one of these posters last April.
Here’s a snopes article about it.
Here’s the video we are talking about this week. Note: John very clearly says, “damn it,” when trying to pronounce the name of the Nepal Challenge.
Here’s the Twilight song video that Jasmine references when we are talking about Hank’s wife, Katherine. This video wasn’t made till 2009… so it would be a long time before we got to it at the rate we’re going.
Here’s some more information about the Looking for Alaska show that’s happening on Hulu.
And here’s some interesting information about Nepal.
Finally, I’ll leave you with some pictures of our dogs.
Here are some things that we talk about and that you might be interested in.
#1. Accio Deathly Hallows… the video that started us (Jasmine and me) on this journey.
#2. Here’s what phones looked like in 2006, the year before the Jan 1st video that we’re talking about. (See the previous post if you haven’t watched the first Vlogbrothers video.)
#3. Ecogeek. It’s what Hank was doing. It’s still a thing but somebody else is doing the writing for it now. https://www.ecogeek.org/
Also, Hank was 27, not 24. He’s 38 now. Time flies…
#4. John Green had written Looking For Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines. Looking for Alaska was his first book, so I was totally wrong about that. He was 29 and now he’s 41 but still looks great (it’s not pandering if it’s true).
#5. Life’s library is the name of the book club and if I’d been paying attention I would realize that there is a digital version of it (which I subscribed to as I promised I would). There’s a recent Vlogbrother’s video all about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLBjcxR0l70
#6. The second Brotherhood 2.0 Video… which I am now allowed to watch according to rules that I was not aware of before.
I hope somebody is having as much fun with this podcast as I am.
The first ever episode of our French the Llama podcast will post on Monday Oct 29th. It’s a little behind our original schedule but it’s going to be great. You should watch the first episode of Brotherhood 2.0 in preparation… and so here it is. Come back on Monday to hear us talk about it.
