First Track on Incongruent: “I Fucking Love Science.” I think this will also be the first music video…if all goes according to plan.

Obviously, this is the explicit version. If you like it please share! And high five to Rob Scallon for that SICK DRUM SOLO!

God I’m excited about this.

Hank, this is freaking fantastic. My ears want to grow mouths so they can shout about how good of a song this is.

Wow, Anne! That is a truly terrifying visual! Thank you!

So I’ve decided…if this hits 10,000 notes I’ll release another song from the album. 

Played 95738 times.

Thanks for everyone that checked out my #ReviewsDayTuesday review of TFiOS!

For anyone that missed it, every other week I review the #1 bestselling book on Amazon, and this week it was #FishingBoatProceeds (otherwise known as John Green) with The Fault in Our Stars! Of course I couldn’t do it justice in five minutes, but this book had a HUGE impact on me.

Check out the review above. Don’t forget to subscribe to see future reviews!

Five Minute Books is on hiatus this week while I help my wife run her daycare for Spring Break. If you need your #ReviewsDayTuesday fix, check out last week’s episode with a review of TFiOS by John Green.

If you read a book and write a book review for it, you can get points for NEHS!

Hank Green came up with an internet thing called “ReviewsDayTuesdays” in which, on Tuesdays, people write book reviews for their favorite books or a book they’ve read recently. (more information here) We thought…

I’m watching and thinking about Civil Rights. And how I can’t believe there’s two sides to the issue of Civil Rights. And I had a thought.

The two sides of Civil Rights are those who would treat a black person in society the same as if they were in a room together, and those who break into a panic attack at the thought of being in a room with a black person.

During the MTV Movie Awards, YouTube launched a new initiative aimed to change the way YouTube creators are seen by their communities and by the world at large. I’m not saying that this is a bad strategy or even a bad thing for YouTube, but I think it is worth discussing because it will change…

This is all great and good points. But it doesn’t scare me at all.

It’s very similar to how Amazon handled self publishing. At first it was a lawless landscape where anything went. A very small number of people (including the likes of Hugh Howey, CJ Lyons, Sean Platt and David Wright) made VERY comfortable livings, or in some cases millions. Many, many more people hit the midlist, where they earned extra income from their books, but still had other things going on in their lives. And then there was the slush pile, where tend of thousands of self published books went to die.

Eventually Amazon created 47North and their other publishing arms. These were “traditional self publishing,” and they did well for the authors who were signed. Amazon gave and continues to give these authors special promotion and ranking bonuses. If you can get in, great. It’s a lower level of gatekeeper than traditional publishing, but still a gatekeeper.

But it didn’t stop me from becoming a midlist self publisher, and gaining the ability to do it full time as recently as last year. The fundamentals of gaining and retaining an audience are the same. It takes time. It requires you to communicate what your audience, find out what works and what doesn’t, and let your product list build. For me, that means new books on Kindle and new videos on YouTube. Overnight success might be harder to achieve, but I think long-term goals will be just as easy to achieve.

Those who want to create great YouTube content because they love it, and would do it regardless, will be fine in the long run. In the end, the wild success of industry publishers on Kindle don’t stop me from earning a living writing my own books. And the wild success of the new “industry” creators on YouTube won’t stop me from gaining an audience, growing it and establishing a great relationship with them.

imagine Tonks and Lupin in bed, and he’s the little spoon and he turns round to kiss her only to find she’s metamorphasized her face into Snape’s and he screams and she laughs so hard she falls out the bed

lavender brown gets more hate for how she handles unrequited romantic feelings than snape does and i find that incredibly disturbing

Oh.

It could be because she mostly cries about it to Harry in the books, while Snape dedicates seventeen years and sacrifices his life to avenge Lily and protect her son.

Maybe that’s just me though.

In the latest “life is weird” news, John Green and wife, Art Assignment host Sarah Urist Green, coolly saunter down the red carpet. Until John falls flat on his face. See the link to enjoy!
