Lost souls. (by kasooie)

this kid says stuff and it is good.

[F]or other lost souls, those paper worlds will make much more sense than this one. Fictitious characters will become more real than the people they ride the bus with. They will find more truth in the lyrics of a song than in any article of the Constitution, and the verses of some book will become their law.

They won’t be able to jump into these worlds, and on some days this melancholy in their pockets will feel like it’s weighing them down, but they will never feel lonely again because they will know:

All of these stories were made for them.

odetomyday asked: You are REALLY good at getting the vlogbrothers to reblog you.

*publishing because you’re the third to say something along those lines and with that post over 5,000 notes you probably won’t be the last, haha.*

Anyway

I don’t know if I’d quite say that, but I suspect it has something to do with the fact that my name is rather singular, and they have seen it more than once.

There was a clip once of Derren Brown or someone of that nature, and he basically showed how certain stimuli can have a suggestive effect on our brains. Like he planned out this whole trip thing for a couple of advertisers- just a simple bus/taxi ride-and then they were asked to come up with a picture and phrase to go with some advert scheme. They ended up reproducing almost exactly the picture he’d drawn beforehand (to be clear, they hadn’t seen it previously). He’d basically counted on the fact that their brains would pick up on certain images along the taxi/bus ride to the studio.

In a similar fashion, I would imagine that after seeing my name so many times, it tends to draw your eye. Even in a place like the YouTube comment sections, certain names will stand out and you’ll start remembering them. (Personally GONEmypurpleflapjack and ChrisJDArcy come to mind. I know nothing about them, but their usernames have implanted themselves in my brain. Also I’ve gotten quite a few “top comments” on YT, not really sure why, but that could be anther exposure.)

To be fair though it’s only happened twice. The reblogging I mean. John’s taken my question in a Question Tuesday (because he could make a pizza joke out of it), and they attempted to answer a different question from me at the Tour de Nerdfighting stop in Albuquerque this past January (because it was a funny question. Also John signed my name in one of his books, so another exposure there). Oh and there was one time John tweeted about a radio thing and I asked about the time and he replied. Then Ze has used a couple of my replies to his questions things on twitter, and I know they watch A Show, so there’s another way they could notice it….

Right. Okay, I’m weirding myself out now. My brain is the definition of overanalysis.

but no, seriously, pretty sure I have nothing to do with it.

just a couple very, very nice coincidences methinks!

also I tag pretty much everything, and both of them admit to following their tags on tumblr soooo… could be that too :)

especially since the things they’ve reblogged from me weren’t like, particularly amazing or insightful or whatever. just little things.

that said, every time it happens I still have a bit of a…. fit, if you will.

I recorded this for Hank today.

Violin (2 parts), viola, piano, and guitar. (Yes there is a guitar in there, I don’t care if you can’t hear it.)

It came out infinitely better than my video. Because I am bad at talking.

I uploaded the video anyway. But then it died. So I made an even worse version to replace it.

But the song is kind of okay still.

Even though my mic wasn’t working either so I had to use the built-ins..

But yeah.

So I’ll just leave it here.

Happy Hanko de Mayo.

posted on 20.04.12 I just realized that the day John Green showed us the cover of TFiOS was also the day that this happened:
  • TheSaera: What's in your pockets?
  • John Green: Pizza, of course!!! What else would I put in my pockets?!

In which honesty is rewarded in Nerdfighteria.

Geez.

So there’s this game that I’ve played for years (Pirates Online… yeah, I know its meant to be a kid’s game but… Shut Up)
And a while ago they added a fishing minigame thing
and when you get to a certain level you’re able to reach almost the very bottom of the ocean (scientifically iffy, yes, but still awesome because the fish have their proper names and coloring and stuff… and… yeah..)
so anyway 
One of the fish they have is the anglerfish, and every time I see one, I can’t help but think of Hank
and that makes me happy :)
So I let them live.
And there’s that.
