Hey Doctor, do you want to build a snowman?
I want it!
Now available for pre-order at DFTBA Records! Gallifreyan quotes from my books and nerdfighteria.

I can still smell the Unique Wacky String from a can.
Thanks to everyone who has already supported the Project for Awesome by giving their money, time, and talent. I’m so proud to be a nerdfighter and a YouTuber tonight.
Hank will be up with a livestream soon to take you through the rest of the night; in the meantime, you can donate to the p4a and redeem many amazing perks.
FOUR HOURS LEFT in dftba.com’s annual sale! Every order—even if you get all nine of these posters and ship them to Kuala Lumpur—ships for $3.
Today is the last day of our annual sale. Every order ships for $3 worldwide no matter how much you buy or where you live.
I guess black Friday starts now.
The Crash Course Complete Series DVD box sets have arrived! They’re now shipping. And they are gorgeous! There are currently two box sets available, World History and Biology. Each set includes 8 DVDs in five DVD cases, mini posters and inserts, outtakes and other bonus footage, etc. They’re $60 each, or you can get both for $100 ($20 off!), just add both to your cart and the discount is automatically applied.
Maybe I can talk Crash Course into letting me host a future Music History series… by which I mean, let me play you Dark Side of the Moon while we all listen appreciatively in silence. =)
Man, those are pretty.
So Hankgames is becoming a big sponsor of a real, live professional soccer team, AFC Wimbledon.
AFC Wimbledon really is tumblr’s team: They’re owned by their fans, not some rich guy. They’re leading the fight to end homophobia in sports. Their mascot is a womble.
This is a team that deserves to be in the football league, and hopefully our support will help keep them there. As part of our sponsorship package, we’ll have signage around the ground and on the pitch. We can advertise whatever we want: hankgames, crash course, the project for awesome, poetry, whatever. If you’d like to design a sign, just use the tag afc wimbledon. (We think the signs are 16 feet long and 3 feet high.)
A few videos to watch to cement your AFC Wimbledon fandom!
Just in time for winter, DFTBA brings you its first ever pullover hoodie!
I can’t WAIT to wear this around the house this winter. I’m always so cold.
We would probably have to go to court and it would suck and be boring and no one’s life would get better. The whole reason we haven’t trademarked DFTBA is that no one’s life would get better (except arguably ours) if we did it, and it just doesn’t seem fun or useful.
Plus, then we would have to exercise the trademark against EVERYONE, not just (say) Kate Spade and Urban Outfitters, so we’d be legally forced to shut down Etsy shops or whatever, which is the exact opposite of the spirit of the nerdfighter community.
In short, please God no one try to trademark DFTBA so we can continue living in this mostly utopian world where a thing is used freely and mostly well by mostly nice people. Thanks.
When The Fault in Our Stars came out, we were able to release a limited-edition audiobook version narrated by me along with a DVD featuring videos of me talking about the book, a ticket to a concert featuring The Hectic Glow, a Hectic Glow wristband, and postcards featuring scenes from the book.
I’m delighted to announce that a new edition of this audiobook and DVD box set is now available for preorder at dftba.com. (It will look just like what you see above, only the wristband is a light blue.)
So if you want to hear me read you the book, now you can.
This is possible because of support from Penguin and my real audiobook publisher, Brilliance Audio, so thanks to them.
I got one from the original printing of this. It’s awesome!!! If you don’t have it, and are debating whether or not you want to get it, just get it.
You heard halosandbagels, people: Just get it.
(Off topic but why does everyone on tumblr have a better username than I do? I feel inadequate.)
