We will only use this once or twice and then we will delete it, so there's no reason to worry about signing up.

Proof that the video is less than four minutes: http://edwardspoonhands.com/post/29628781553/youtube-up-to-its-old-tricks-adding-a-second-to

In which Hank sings a song about Harry Potter, and how screwed up that world is, really, when you think about it. Thanks to Harry and the Potters and Neil Cicierega for helping inspire it.

 Intro and Leakycon


LeakyCon audience: Good Morning John, it's Monday.

Hank:

Obviously, LeakyCon was amazing. I'm just talking right now, a little bit so I can use some clips cause I'm not going to make a whole clip video, but clips clips clips clips clips.

So in 2007, I wrote a song about Harry Potter that changed my life. And I made a promise to myself because that was such a momentous occasion in my life, that I would write another song about Harry Potter every year on the anniversary of that video. And I have done that but this year, I saved my song so I could release it on the stage of LeakyCon, and now I've done that and so I can release it to all of you.

If you don't like acoustic Hank, or even singing Hank then you can skip cause there's important stuff at the end of this video.

 Song (0:38)


There's a place where I always wanted to go
through a platform at the station where I think you know
It always seems so much more beautiful than here
But things are not always quite as they appear
Cause I've done a little searching and become concerned
that the wizarding world isn't quite what we had learned
So I might share a few of those fears

This is an open letter to the wizards of the UK
Cause I've finally got the nerve to say things that I gotta say
You make it seem like your world is so pristine
When it's angels versus demons, it's not hard to pick a team
Well I used to want to go to Hogwarts too but now I got a couple questions for you.

Well you don't seem to have much industry
Wizards work at schools or the ministry
And by letting goblins house your currency,
You're letting them control your whole economy.

I don't understand how any business gets done
when a wand only costs seven galleons.
That doesn't seem like much to me.

This is an open letter to the wizards of the UK
Cause I've finally got the nerve to say things that I gotta say
You make it seem like your world is so pristine
When it's angels versus demons, it's not hard to pick a team
Well I used to want to go to Hogwarts too but now I got a couple questions for you.

They say you can put a stopper in death,
Well I'm wondering why you haven't shared that yet.
Cause when my friends and family die,
And the wizards aren't helping, well I wonder why,
You can make new hands and regrow bones
Dumbledore's a hundred and fifty freaking years old,
and I don't think we'd mind if you shared.

And your isolationist tendencies, they truly worry me
with the Dark Lord at your door step,
You'd hadn't called for help yet.
You've got known racists playing politics
And slaves making your food
Yeah, Slaves making your food.

Yeah, I don't think it's as nice as it appears,
I think I'd rather deal with the problems we've got here.
Which is why I wrote this...

...open letter to the wizards of the UK
Cause I've finally got the nerve to say things that I gotta say
You make it seem like your world is so pristine
When it's angels versus demons, it's not hard to pick a team
Well I used to want to go to Hogwarts too but now I got a couple questions for you.

Yeah I had a couple questions for you.
And that's why I sang you this tune.

Done.

 An important Date (3:09)


There is another important date coming up very soon, that you may or may not already know about it. If you don't, I can't really talk about it here because there's somebody watching who…we can't….we gotta…keep it on the DL.

There is a one time only use mailing list that you can sign up for and you need to do that by Saturday night because that's when we will be sending the email out.

If you want to help with this thing, it's not a lot of work and I would really appreciate
it.
*doobly doo*

Oh right, I forgot about you. It's a llama elephant. It's a puppy-sized llama elephant. Who am I kidding? It's FRENCH THE PUPPY-SIZED LLAMAPHANT.

John, I'll see you on Tuesday.

My voice is still so croaky.
