This is a new segment that I call "Popular Songs Sung in Unpopular Styles." [sings] She had them apple-bottomed jeans and the boots with the fur.

The whole club was looking at her. She hit the floor, next thing you know, shorty got low, shorty got lowwww. Baggy sweatpants and them Reeboks with the straps.

She turned around and gave that big booty a smack, yeah! She hit the floor, next thing you know, shorty got low, shorty got low. [end of song] But that's only one of the things that I want to do today! I also want to show you something that I found that I haven't shown you yet that I should've shown you a long time ago.

This, my friends, is the contents of the Tritube-is upside-down right now. 'In this spot in the year 1000 Leif Erikson built his house.' This is actually a rubbing down by secret brother Tom, it's rubbed in every green color from Crayola's 64 pack. Asparagus, Robin's Egg, Granny Smith, Sea Green, Forest Green, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Also I wanted everybody to see that it says 'P.

S. You are my favorite brother!' hahahaha I would also like to announce the end of the first blurbing book club blurbfest. It was really hard to try to find all of the blog posts that had blurbs in them, so I'm sorry if I missed you, but most of them are catalogued at in three blog posts just below this video.

And I'm asking everyone to read through those and then go to the forums and list your favorite, so that we can figure out who is the best, who is going to get the prize. So I'm changing the rules for the second blurbing book club a little bit, because it was so hard to find everybody's blurbs. Instead of posting a blog post, there is a specific topic in the forum where you can post your blurbs.

Don't post anything besides blurbs in there so we can keep it all straight. Post your blurbs and maybe a little bit of a description about your blurb if you want, but no like discussion back and forth or else it will just get as confusing as the blog posts were. Also, I want to emphasize only one blurb per person and ten words per blurb.

Anything more than that, I'm not going to be angry at you, but I'm also not going to include you in the contest, sorry. New blurbing book club book, if you're curious, is Slaughterhouse 5, ah, there's a link to buy it over in the sidebar. Or you can get it at any bookstore in the world, probably.

It's also a really easy book to find used, so if you have a used bookstore nearby I suggest you check it out. The blurbs were great. I'm a big fan of this LOLCat one [laughs].

Many, many, many of them are awesome and, uh, it's going to be hard to choose, so, but hopefully you guys can help me with that. I'd also like to announce that in honor of our 20,000th subscriber- who I can't figure out who it is, because there's too many and I- counting isn't working anymore, the way I used to do it- in honor of them, I, and possibly John, am going to be available for video chat via Stickam, which you can find at The chat will be on the front page of at precisely 7:00 mountain time, 6:00 pacific and 9:00 eastern, and I have no idea if you are outside of the US what time it is going to be, but you can figure it out.

It's 7:00 mountain standard time. Maybe all 20,000 of our subscribers will come! Probably not.

I mean, seriously. 20,000 subscribers. That is insane. That is all for today, I'm looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow night- actually I'm looking forward to having all of you see me tomorrow night, you will mostly just be names.

It may be a little busy in there, but I'm going to do my best. John, maybe I will see you tomorrow, but I can't get you on the phone [holds up phone], so [waves].
