I'm In YouTube Rewind 2013. In A One Direction Shirt. With Harken.

The title of this post says it all. Yes, that's me in YouTube's Rewind 2013 music video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7jtC8vjXw8 Adding up YouTube Rewind 2013, Rebecca Black's Saturday, and The Today Show, I've made my weird face at over 33,000,000 people this week. And on top of that, I was holding a gnome, my book Harken, and wearing a pink One Direction shirt. It can't get any more 2013 than that.

I'm The Guy In The "Princess Charming" Music Video By Megan And Liz

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MStFOr2BI40 A few weeks ago, I went to a filming in Laguna Beach, CA, for a music video shoot with the amazing singing duo Megan And Liz! It was rainy and extremely dreary all day but that actually turned out to be awesome, since I was playing the part of the somewhat-love-interest having a somewhat-terrible-day. This shoot was loads of fun (when is hanging out with a bunch of Youtubers in Orange County NOT fun??). And you have no idea how many takes we did to get that garbage bag to tear right.

The Truth About Youtube Videos (On A Budget)

Youtubers are a very resourceful bunch. An actual budget for materials and special effects is rare when I'm making videos.

Here's how it works:

Haters Got Brainz

It's nice to see that Crystle kept removing and rewriting her comment until it was in proper english. It shows that she does, indeed, care. Come on Shaina! I tried REALLY HARD to make those photoshoopz convincing! You can't possibly tell me you weren't convinced for at least a minute or two: Some people have no appreciation for all the hard work I do. (see these comments, and more of the best commenters from Youtube, on the original video)

New F.A.Q. Page (Warning: May Contain Penguins)

Due to popular demand, I have now opened up a brand-new F.A.Q. page (click here to visit)! With it, you can: - Find out what a penguin has to do with Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse - See how I get rid of writer's block - Check out my favorite music for writing - Find out why I sign my name KAN - Find out who this is: - and loads more! I'll be adding to the page as questions come in, and the Bran Hambric section especially after the book comes out (there's only so many questions for me to answer about it now, of course!).

My Video of Excuses

I just put up a new Youtube video that basically says why I haven't put up a new Youtube video in so long. In my last post I said my next video would be about writing. Wrong! That one is taking a little more work. Meanwhile: ADDED: Forgot to mention: you can see my interviews on this page.
