In which John talks about Leakycon and the magic of wizard rock. The song is "Dumbledore," from the Wizard Rock legends Harry and the Potters. You need to own this song:

Thanks to everyone at Leakycon for reminding me why I like being a person, and thanks to Hank for the crash course in Final Cut Express (still got a lot to learn, obviously).

Good morning, Hank.

It's Sunday. The other day I was in an Apple store and someone walked up to me and the said, "Are you John Green?" And I was like "Yes, I am John Green." And the woman said "I used to watch your videos." Used to?! So, Hank, I don't have a lot of time to film this video 'cause I gotta go to Australia.

By the way, Nerdfighters in Melbourne or Sydney, if you wanna hang out with me and a bunch of other nerdfighters, check out the side bar. But, Hank, you and I just had two extraordinary days at Leaky Con, a Harry Potter conference. I was really inspired to spend a couple days with people who care about one another and about making the world more awesome so much and so completely without irony.

Like, sometimes in our hyper-cynical world, we forget that it's ok to get enthusiastic about things. Also, another thing I like about Harry Potter conferences, when I was at the bar, someone dressed as Dumbledore came up, put his hand on my shoulder and said "When Dumbledore's here, John Green drinks free." Well, Hank, I don't need to tell you that I've been waiting my whole life for Dumbledore to buy me a drink. And it happened.

So, Hank, I'm not going to keep talking anymore. I'm just going to show you some awesome that we experienced at Leaky Con in the form of Wizard Rock. (Hank singing) Oh yeah, Harry Potter. Debutante's fame tarnished by affairs.

Delano fears to be afraid. DFTB DFTB DFTBA. I don't know what you mean when you say, Please explain, what is DFTBA?

I don't know what you mean when you say, Please explain, what is DFTBA? (Inaudible singing by band on stage) (Band on stage) Is there anybody out there who feels alive? I said is there anybody out there who feels alive? (John Green) And finally, Hank, I wrote an open letter to the Twilight fandom. Dear Twilight fandom, Call me when you can rock like that.

Hank, don't forget to be awesome, and the next time I see you, I'll be in Australia.
