(singing) Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And days of auld lang syne. It occurs to me that I have no idea what that song means, and instead of going to Wikipedia and figuring out what it means for myself, I'm going to assume that, for the purposes of this video, that auld lang syne means something along the lines of (singing to tune of Auid Lang Syne) "Should Hank, and John, make more videos in 2009?" And the answer, I think, should be yes! So I'd like to take you all back.

Back, far, far to the past, so far into the past in which I made a video two years ago, in which I didn't know how to make videos, but I did it anyway, and it went something like this: *plays Brotherhood 2.0 intro* Hey John, I guess you've heard by now (beep beep) Auto Power off? Still some glitches to work out. By now you have received my message that we will no longer be communic- Well, well actually we will be communicating through textual means.

You can see my eye in my eye. Last night I sent you an email. I wasn't in Lake Tahoe, but this is footage from a party in Lake Tahoe that I was at two years ago, New Years Eve, in which I will tell you about Brotherhood

Every Sunday for the next year, John, you will send me a video in which you tell me about some current news event that you think is vitally important, but I am probably blissfully ignorant of. 'Cause I actually really like it when you do that. I think it's one of the coolest things that we've done in Brotherhood 2.0 because, you know, blissful ignorance is great and everything, but it's nothing compared to the crushing weight of the truth! I expect those videos to be good, comprehensive, and in depth.

And if you want to eat toilet paper or smear peanut butter all over your face, that's fine too. Every Tuesday, one of us will send the other one a video blog of some sort. We can really just do whatever we want to on Tuesdays.

Every other Wednesday, I will perform an original Hank Green song. Song Wednesdays are back! And then, later in the week maybe there will be another video of some kind.

It will be a surprise. Because I think some people liked the surprise aspect of the last year, whereas other people liked the structure. So now you get structure and surprise.

If one of us fails to keep up these responsibilities, we will be punished! I finish this email, cross my heart, hope to die, and I may very well be required to stick a needle in my eye. That's the kind of punishment I'm talking about.

Does that make us crazy? Probably. A little bit more complicated than the first year's rules, turns out, but there you have it.

At least one vlog per week, sometimes two, sometimes three. News on Sunday, and songs every other Wednesday. So a little bit more structure for the people who were looking for more structure, and more videos all around because everybody unanimously wanted more videos.

Also, of course there will be BlogTV appearances and there are plenty of open days for us to do whatever the frick we want to. And I hope that you will be down with us doing whatever the frick we want to, because there's nothing like doing whatever the frick I wanna do, as long as I'm doing it with you. John, I'm fairly certain that I will see you tomorrow.

Happy Freakin' New Year!
