HELP US GO TO VIDCON!

Oh hey there. What Did You Look Up on Wikipedia? is embarking on a journey. And we need your help.

Vidcon is a yearly gathering of online video makers and lovers. As both, we’d really love to go – and we’re planning on it. But we need your help! The tickets for Vidcon are $150, not to mention traveling to and staying in Anaheim. We’ve launched a fundraiser to help us get there. If you choose to donate, you can give as little or as much as you like. There are also a range of prizes, depending on your donation level. We didn’t want to let you down, so we tiered them by naming them after Game of Thrones characters.

Don’t worry, Littlefinger will not be handling any donations.

Throughout the journey, both in raising donations and traveling to Vidcon, we’ll be documenting everything, releasing new episodes and updates. We appreciate how much many of you’ve supported this project from the beginning and we’re excited to meet and learn from some other folks who make videos at Vidcon.

Episode 25: Novelties

Have no fear, our intrepid Sally will be back next week. This week, Shelley and Jen guest host in an episode where we discuss novelties from the toy, fitness and um…butt hygiene worlds.

Episode 24: Mythical Creatures

Over the holidays Kristin and now two-time guest host Reinhardt (you may have seen him in Episode 6 telling everyone why the drummer for Aerosmith is the best job), visited Reinhardt’s grandmother and parents, who proceeded to tell us about a pretty epic Filipino monster, the kapre, who’d moved into one of their relative’s vacant home. Doing some more research, we realized that there were enough legendary creatures on Wikipedia to make 100 episodes. But we just made one.

A big shout out to Matt (@mrapol), who tweeted at us to look up the Pope Lick Monster. If you want us to look something up on the show, you can tweet or email us.

Apologies for some of the technical issues such as, our demonic screaming radiator and the inconsistent lighting. We learned too late that the camera we were using shuts off every 29 (why??!) minutes when in HD.
