Death Note Season 1 Opening (Live Action Music Video)

The song is called "The World" and the band is Nightmare. It's Japanese, and I LOVE THIS SONG SO FRICKING MUCH!!

Drumroll please! This week's "YouTube Favorite Award" goes to...

...Kaleb Nation!!

Yes, Kaleb "Twilight Guy" Nation is a man of many talents. In addition to earning the respect of over 750 thousand STFG (screaming Twilight fangirls) he is an author and creator of hilarious YouTube videos. In this video he counts down the five things he would do if he became a really, really famous author. His first book debuts in late 2009.

Find more videos on his channel:
(you have to copy and paste; I don't think there's any way to put a video and a hotlink in the same post. Sorry!)

Video Revue: From Page to Screen!

Our 9th podcast is up and running! Download from iTunes, or use the link below:

In this episode, Johnny and I discuss three book-to-movie adaptations: a good example (Tim Burton's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" from the book by Roald Dahl), a bad example ("Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" which cannot compare to JK Rowling's original book), and one that's coming out in December (three guesses and the first two don't count...). We also have a new intro for the show.

Coming later this week, Johnny and I will debut our new blog-exclusive feature: YouTuber of the week! Who will be the first one to win this illustrious honor? Stay tuned!
