As promised, here's the Vlogbrothers song for Father's Day. It's genius!

Contains 100% pure awesome.

Happy Father's Day to all you great dads out there!

New Video Revue and Other Announcements

This week, Johnny and I discuss one of our favorite '90s sitcoms: Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Think "Bewitched" set in high school, with a talking cat. But seriously, it was an awesome show.

As always, you can find Video Revue on iTunes or Podshow

Neither of the bumpers was from an episode we mentioned. The opening bumper was from Season 2's "Rumor Mill," where Sabrina starts working for a tabloid because she thinks it counts as "community service." Her job is to create rumors...which then all come true (including her cat becoming a mob boss, her aunts getting abducted by aliens, and her boyfriend getting pregnant). The other bumper was from a Season 7 episode, where Sabrina meets her fiance's family for the first time. She tries a "harmony spell" in the hopes that it will ease the discord.

Other announcements:
1. Happy Father's Day!
2. Subject:Cinema is back, after a 3-week medical leave...they've got two shows up now, including their anniversary show! Congratulations on 3 great years, and here's to many more!
3. Speaking of anniversaries: happy "Svenniversary" to the great Rich Koz, who has been dressing up as Chicagoland's favorite horror host, Svengoolie, for THIRTY years! Johnny and I watched the special 30th anniversary episode last night...HILARIOUS! We even taped it...we might try posting some of the Sven bits up on YouTube. If we do, you'll be the first to know!

Video Revue: YouTube Countdown!

On this week's show, Johnny and I count down our five favorite YouTubers. I've gotta say, this was a fun topic. We both spend an inordinate amount of time rotting our brains on YouTube, so it was great to talk about some of the best sets of videos out there.

Topics include:
-Marvel vs. DC!
-Golf balls vs. a blender!
-Stoner unicorns!

And more! Keep watching this space for links to our playlists of our very favorite videos.

As always, you can find us on iTunes or Podshow.

Video Revue: Legends of Anime

And we're back (already)! This week, Johnny and I discuss some of our favorite anime TV shows and movies. Johnny knows how to say "Legends of Anime" in Japanese but I don't know how to spell it with either English characters or katakana (one of the 3 sets of characters which make up the Japanese language). As always, you can subscribe to us through iTunes or listen through Podshow.

Death Note "Potato Chip" scene

A freakin' creepy, freakin' hilarious scene from the anime "Death Note", which is one of the best anime shows out there. This is the only good scene from the English dub.
