I got another DH&J animation for you all! Please enjoy “First Steps” and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter for polls and suggestions, and of course subscribe to me on Youtube! :) At 500 subs I’ll start doing videos like TheOdd1sOut, Jaiden Animation, Domics, etc. (but don’t worry, the DH&J animations will still be at thing!)
Crap vid, sorry, literally straight from my snapchat (aduje96 btw) but I went to the Music of Nerdfighteria show at Vidcon and The Gregory Brothers played a medley of their Songify YouTube songs. The two girls standing next to me went crazy as soon as they heard the first notes to All The Way. It was adorable! They were so excited and I just loved seeing them enjoying the song.
It was a weird moment to like have a bunch of people singing along to some YouTube videos. I’m never getting used to it, but it’s one of my favorite things.
I made another Dear Hank and John animation! I didn’t plan on it taking so long, but I had a business trip, then the holiday, then a death in the family, and this happened to be a longer story already! Crazy! O_o
psa john green wrote a *really* important book about mental illness (OCD, depersonalization and anxiety) and tumblr should care
I just finished Turtles All the Way Down yesterday, and I was pretty blown away by how similar yet vastly different this was from all other John Green books.
It’s extremely well-written, partly because Aza’s thought spirals are a consistent and brutal part of the story from beginning to end, but also because the plot is filled with beautiful and important themes such as dealing with loss, the question of what exactly is the ‘self’ and … star wars fan fiction?
Now, I know that tumblr has loved to hate John Green with an irrational passion, based on no reason other than jumping on some anti-john green meme bandwagons. So @ all of those people, don’t you dare reduce this book to something it isn’t- like you did with johns other books. Especially seeing that he wrote it because he has OCD himself and found a way to explain it to anyone who doesn’t experience it, which is incredibly important.
So, all that to say Turtles All the Way Down is great and everyone should read it!
NEW VIDEOOOOOO! This one features special guest Gaby Dunn! Go check out her stuff and Hank’s if you haven’t done so already! Also check out my last video where I talk about my win/fail Slenderman costume. https://youtu.be/YLbE-tp33hs

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. And then there are books which you can’t tell people about, books so special and rare and yours that advertising your affection feels like a betrayal.”
