March 22nd: Book Club and Business Cards


Good morning, John. It’s Thursday March 22nd. I just mixed a misprinted business card utilization idea with putting stuff on my head. Now I have to do is put a misprinted business card in my pants and then put my pants on my head. Mm-hmm. So I haven’t forgot what I’m gonna talk about today. Well first I have to show you how I made this misprinting business card utilization idea and second I think I’m going to talk about the continuation of the Brotherhood 2.0 Book club. A very long time ago, a commenter suggested that I make a cube out of my misprinted business cards and I thought he was kind of crazy. But then I realized, all I needed was a little magic. Ok actually he sent me to a tutorial. You need six business cards, you actually will eventually need 12 but start with 6. They’ll be the exact same size which is fine for me because I’ll mine are the same size. Then you take one and you bend it over the other, you end up with these little cups. You have to combine them using a lot of manual dexterity. This is half a cube. This is when I get start to really hard on camera because you have to hold everything while you’re doing it. One more piece and the cube will be done. Suddenly a surprisingly sturdy cube. Now this is kind of ugly. What the tutorial advises is that you use these flappy things, here and here, and you use other little cups that you’ve made, you slide them into your flappy things like so. Your face now becomes a flat pretty face instead of these tabby ugly faces. So now you just do that six times and you’ve got this. This is a beautiful little eco geek cube that I’ve used now in my intros to my ego geek videos which you will soon be able to see on Now everyone knows that I had to read “We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families”. You didn’t have to read anything because the book I’m injury was your book that you were writing because you needed to finish your book because you were past your deadline. Plus all the people who watch Brothehood 2.0 or John Green fans and I think they would all hate me if I stood between you and finishing your book. So I’ve decided that you should read world-changing, a user’s guide to the 21st century. Yes, it is this big. Yes, I am kidding. I considered asking you to read The God Delusion but I think maybe that would be a little bit too inflammatory. So instead, I’m asking you to read Bill McKibben’s new book “Deep economy” because I run ecogeek. I’m getting a free copy of “Deep economy” and I will be reading it too because I’m probably going to be interviewing the author for my website and it’d be good to know what the books about first and I’d like to talk about it with you if possible before the interview. Thank you to everyone who’s taken my plea to put stuff on your head so seriously. I really do believe that this is, at least in part, an opportunity to decrease world suck. I’d look like a Trojan. Hope you all won’t think I’m selfish when I say this and it’s great to see John with dumb stuff on his head and I do like putting stuff on my own head. But I kind of want to see stuff on your head. So maybe we could set something up, where people send us pictures of stuff on their heads and videos and videos of stuff on their heads and people doing stuff while stuff is on their heads. Yes, yes, I think this is a good idea. Anyhow, I’ll see you tomorrow.

    Hank, you' 're being way too stereotypical by stereotyping the Trojans.
