Good morning Hank, it's Tuesday. Happy 2017!

Today's video is like Voldemort's soul, it comes to you in eight parts, one of which is inconveniently located inside our protagonist.

Part one: my snot. Hank, there is so much snot inside of my body right now, so I apologize if I sound sick. It, it's because I am sick.

Part two: speaking of my health, 100 Days has begun. My best Chris and I are trying to have a healthy midlife crisis, so over the next 100 days, we're gonna learn a lot about health and fitness. And over at, you can see me do this. And also this sweet move. And also quite a lot of this. Mostly that, really. Doing partner abs always reminds me that my stomach was made for resting a laptop upon. But my life is changing pretty dramatically during these 100 days. You can also follow along with us, if you are so inclined. And if you are at NerdCon: Nerdfighteria next month in Boston, you can do a live workout with Chris, and me, and our trainer, Laura.

Part three: Ten year anniversary. Hank, ten years and one day ago, I uploaded my first ever video to YouTube. In honor of that anniversary, here's a terrible old school Vlogbrothers jump cut. If I ever found out I only had one day to live, I want to be a day full of 2007 Vlogbrothers jump cuts. Anyway that first video began:

Pbbbbbt. I'm not going to be good at this.

I wasn't good at it of course, and in many ways I'm still not, but I feel so lucky to be at it ten years later, and I just want to say thank you to everyone who's been part of the last decade with us.

Part four: So a while back, we asked a Montana-based artist named Claire Emery to make some limited-edition woodblock-prints to celebrate Vlogbrother's tenth anniversary. Claire is just an amazing artist and she created three prints to celebrate a decade of Nerdfighteria, each of them is available for pre-order now at in black and white or handcolored. We're not getting a royalty or anything on this, we just love these prints and wanna celebrate this aniversary. So, I hope you like them. Also, Michael Aranda made a beautiful video about Claire and her work, which you can watch over at Hankschannel, link in the dooblydoo.

Part five: speaking of celebrating, throughout 2017, Hank and I are going back to watch every single Vlogbrothers video for a new project called This Date in Vlogbrother's History. For instance, on January 3rd, 2007, Hank referenced for the first time that people were saying we looked like The Proclaimers. And on January 3rd, 2011, I made one of my most viewed videos ever. Which I'm sure had nothing to do with the thumbnail. You can watch the videos and read our reflections on them, over at the community tab at Or you can get notifications by making sure you're subscribed, there is a little button directly beneath the video, and then clicking the bell to get notifications on.

Part six: Hank, as you may have heard, Nerdfighteria sponsors a third-tier English soccer team called AFC Wimbledon, and this Saturday at 10AM Eastern Time here in the U.S., AFC Wimbledon will play in the third round of the FA Cup against Sutton United, a game that would be televised on proper American cable television. Specifically, the channel Fox Sports One. Wimbeldon players wear DFTBA on the back of their shorts, and you can see those shorts live, in high definition, this Saturday. A group of Colorado nerdfighters will be watching the game at the Three Lions Pub in Denver, and there may alse be other places to watch the game live with fellow Nerdfighters. I've started a Reddit thread on the topic, link in the dooblydoo.

Part seven: punishments. Hank, in your final video of 2016, you went over four minutes in a non-educational video, which means for the first time in several years, we've got a Vlogbrothers punishment coming! Your punishment will take place, live on stage, at NerdCon: Nerdfighteria. I'm pretty excited about this. Nerdfighters, if you have suggestions for Hank's punishment, please leave them in comments.

Part eight: a moment of sentimentality. Hank, getting to make stuff with you and Nerdfighteria over the last ten years and three days, has been the great professional privilege of my life. When we started this project, we weren't patricularly close. Like, I left for boarding school when you were eleven. So, I never really knew you as anything other than a kid. I mean, before Vlogbrothers, we talked on the phone, maybe once a year? Now it's least twice a week. These past ten years, Nerdfighteria and its projects have brought so much joy and fulfillment to my life, but the best of it for me has been getting closer to you and being part of the awesome that you bring into the world.

Thank you. Hank, I'll see you on Friday.
