Mario and Luigi

How interesting... Is it just me or is there a shocking similarity between your two favourite video game characters and ... those two annoying Italian plumbers?

Not to blow my own horn, but this is perhaps one of the easiest videos we've ever made, but also one of the must fun and funniest. But don't take my word for it. Judge for yourself.

Everybody knows somebody like this, don't they?

Ball Game

Shamefully it has been almost three months since our last video, which is a long long time.

But fear not, dear stalkers! Here is the latest video, straight from the press, with another to come next week, and many more following that. Hopefully one for Christmas, dare we make that promise!

Goshdarn Goes Digital

The legendary Keith Cooper draws our faces. We recieved an email a short while ago, and Sam called me to show me them. I was very impressed...

Thanks very much Keith. I personally checked out the other drawings on your site, and they were awesome.

Small Update

Only a minor change to the site - we've changed our favourite video hosting site from Vimeo to YouTube, as everybody knows it's a freakin' powerhouse.

It also looks a lot cooler, so if you'll look to your right, you'll see where it says 'Recent Videos', there'll be a list of five or six of our latest videos, all linking straight to YT for easy access.

No fuss, no muss. That's how much we love you guys.

Holy sweet mother of mothers of sweet holy mothers! I just got splurged in the face by another great Goshdarn video!

Excuse the innuendo if you will, but I had to try to distract you whilst I uploaded this video, which has admittedly been a long time in the works. Although only shot in one day, the idea has been circulating for some time, and it has been a little too long between now and our previous video.

But fear not, here it is. Surprise!

Is it just me or does our sense of humour make you want to be sick too?

A Spoonful of Sugar

Sweet Abraham's beard!

Sam got back from holiday either yesterday or today, and called me this morning. After making a Goshdarn splurging based decision, here is the video that you've been waiting for - the video that will put Goshdarn back into action, back on the map, back in business!

A Goshdarn Good Excuse

Despite the title of this post, the content of it does not contain a Goshdarn good excuse for either the lack of videos or the starving children around the world.

However, what it does contain is some good news.

It made my heart shrivel up just as it should have done months ago when I beheld two comments on the Goshdarn YouTube channel, which read:

'Months! It's been two friggin' months! When's your next parole hearing?' - Tiednbound

'Post more videooooosss' - Magicpauly

Now I'll be the first to admit that the latter does not contain as cryptic a message as the former, and whilst the former does not contain that cryptic a message, I feel that it shall need explaining nonetheless.

For - apparently - two months, Goshdarn has been on an as yet unjustified hiatus, with few videos in the works, and little public appearances. However, all is about to change.

As I write this, Sam is on holiday in ... Argh ... He told me, but I now can't remember.

Anyway, he is either still in the mystery location, intent of flying back within days, or he is already on the plane home. I don't know which, because I don't actually know where he's gone or when he'll be back, but he left two weeks ago, and school is starting soon, so he doesn't have much of a choice.

Anyway, when he gets back, Goshdarn will be kickstarting once more, with at least one new video, and with several being filmed and edited for your enjoyment.

Although there will unfortunately be no Series 3, we have decided to engage in the act of what we have started to call 'splurging', which is what we used to do - release a video frequently, but pretty much whenever we felt like it.

This will hopefully continue for many years to come, and although I myself will be going to University next year, the Goshdarn train shouldn't be held up too much by that, because this is too big a part of my life.

So there you have it. A done deal.

Now if I can just find out when Sam gets back from Euralaysia... Or wherever.

The Desolate Wasteland

It seems that the Goshdarn website has started to develop similar symptoms to that of a neglected child.

Sorry for the lack of posts in this vicinity, and also, sorry for not warning you beautiful people of the situation in which we find ourselves.

If you've been checking your calender and counting down the days to Series 3, much as my brother has been, you'll be wee-weeing in anticipation for Goshdarn Series 3 to commence in about 12 minutes.

However, as does rarely happen, we are unprepared for the coming storm.

We have one video waiting in line, and it has been for about a month now, and we have another two videos in the wings, not yet edited, but fantastical nonetheless.

Now, granted, we could unleash this one video upon you and watch you, well, react how you normally do, but we feel a little reluctant to do so, seeing as we have none ready otherwise, and would have only a week to work our magic. We're both very busy people.

So, we're going to wait a little bit, but hopefully not too long, because we're just as impatient as you are.

So, thanks for your patience, and we'll let you know what's going down some time later. Cheers gang.

The Hammock Saga - Series 2 Finale!

Sorry it's late all you wonderful people. Well, it's not late to YouTube, but it's late to here. I would have uploaded it but I was in a hurry - it was my birthday on Thursday.

Although this video isn't as much of a climactic twist as last series, but it's still pretty awesome. Let's face it. We could never live up to THAT.

Also, one more apology. We're unfortunately not finished with the choreography of our dance, and so it won't be a part of Series 2. As you've probably realised by now.

Anyway, enough teasing. Time for some pleasing. Here's the magnificent video.

Thursday, 18 June 2009


So, as you'll see in this video, Goshdarn are stepping it up! That's right! We're using a cool white background!

Superhero Interviews

We're sorry it's late... But here it is - wonderful beautiful sexilicious Goshdarn!

Monday, 8 June 2009

No, but seriously...

Why did I do Latin GCSE? What did I hope to gain?
Aw man...
Look what revision did! Made me so bored I actually wrote on this!
So.... What's happening?

Sam's Last Sleepover ... EVER!

After a shocking discovery, Sam has to sleep over at Tom's. Unwillingly.

Is it just me that feels it's sad to know that we're half way through Goshdarn Series 2...?

Sorry the video is so abnormally big, but it's in full HD. And that makes it necessarily huge.

The Happy Dance

We've been working really hard on all our videos in Goshdarn Series 2, and so it's only natural that we take one of our videos to the next level. So, we've decided to choreograph a dance for our final video, to be released on the 25th of June.

Although it's far from finished, we're working very hard constantly to make this dance awesome. We're certainly not professional dancers, but we're trying very hard. And so here is a sneaky peak of what we've done so far...

So, hopefully that's enough to wet your appetite! This video will be coming on the 25th of June, so we can't wait until then ... mainly because it's my birthday, but...

Tom's Real Father

So, it's that day again - Thursday! And time for another HD Goshdarn video!

If you're watching this on Thursday, then the quality may not be so good - that's because YouTube takes a while to process videos and read the HD and high quality specs. But it should be working soon!

As you may also have noticed, we don't normally release videos to YouTube on Thursdays. Why now, you say? Because, well, most of our viewers subscribe to us on YouTube, and so we feel that it's only fair to make sure that they get to see our videos first. And with YouTube's new(ish) HD allowance, you can see it ASAP in HD! Awesome!

Dimension Problems

Unfortunately our first video of Series 2 wasn't our best. Well, some viewers have said that it WAS our best, but if only the dimensions were a little better. We unfortunately had problems with both sites that we use to host our videos - YouTube and Vimeo.

Problems with YouTube were many. The video was absolutely tiny, and the quality was poor. And there wasn't a HD option, despite the video being in HD.

Vimeo problems weren't as prominent, but were noticeable nonetheless. Again, the dimensions were all off - the whole video made us look fat(ter than usual). I mean, I personally could stand to gain a little weight, but Sam is perfectly proportionate.

However, after a harcore lack of sleep last night, I can safely say that these problems have been eliminated. I have discovered the correct dimensions whilst being able to maintain the video's HDness.

The next video of Goshdarn Series 2 will appear here in standard definition, and on Vimeo in its full HD glory. We hope you enjoy it, as we're staying up all night tonight filming the rest of Series 2 and editing until out mouse-clicking fingers fall right off.

Thanks for everybody's ongoing support with the many problems that combine to form Goshdarn!

Breaking News

Breaking News! Goshdarn are dead!

Oh, I'm kidding, relax! Breaking News is just the name of the first video in Goshdarn Series 2, which you can finally watch right here, right now!

Unfortunately, because our other favourite video site Vimeo is playing up with our formatting, the video isn't available in HD quite yet, but fear not, Goshdarn fans! We're working on the problem and soon all will be well. We'll post the video here in HD as soon as we can.

Until then, enjoy the horrible quality of YouTube. Sorry Google.


Thursday, 21 May 2009

Insert Series 2 HERE!

As much as I love Vimeo, sometimes it can be a little bit awkward. After all, this is now the third time I've tried to upload the first video of Series 2.

What sucks more is that because of my computer's rubbishly low amount of RAM, when I'm uploading a video, it stops me from doing anything else. I'll have to make do with literature.

Maybe after I check Facebook. And Twitter...

Sorry, but it looks like this video may be a little later than expected. Hopefully not too much, though! It should be on by the end of tonight, providing Vimeo sorts itself out. Shudder...


Tuesday, 19 May 2009

48 Hours!

It's that time again! The countdown until Series 2 begins NOW!

Well, in reality, it's been going on since the end of Series 1, but hey, why not rekindle the countdown?

This Thursday, the madness begins all over again, and Goshdarn Series 2 hits the website and Vimeo, with our first HD video, Breaking News. Then, on Saturday, all you people too uncool to visit either Vimeo or will be able to catch it on YouTube.

Please keep the support coming, keep watching and keep commenting on all our videos, and most of all, keep loving us!

We love you, and hope you enjoy Goshdarn Series 2 this Thursday!


Monday, 11 May 2009

New Videos!

So, after waiting 6 hours for a video to finish rendering last night, I can safely say that Goshdarn are half way through filming Series 2! Woohoo!

I know we should be further through, considering Series 2 begins in only 10 days, but we've both been so busy with revision for Sam's GCSE's and my A Levels. So don't judge us!

We really have got some hilarious stuff in store for you, and of course, it's all in HD!

Just a quick thank you to our good friend Keith Cooper for all his awesome ideas, three of which we have/are using.

So, we hope you're looking forward to Series 2!

Goshdarn Series 2 - It's Official!

As most of you probably know, Goshdarn Series 1 was awesome! It was nice to know that we had a set video day, and I hope that it was nice for you guys to know that a new Goshdarn video was waiting for you on a Thursday.

Based on the response, we've decided to do it again! But you've probably figured that our already...

As we've mentioned several times already, Goshdarn Series 2 is going to be Goshdarn's first time using High Definition. You could say we're losing our 'HD-virginity'. But we were never really sure if it would work or not - the Handycam we use films in a format that very few (only two that we know of) editing softwares support, and we weren't sure of all the tech stuff. However, after testing it all out, we have now discovered the format that it all needs to be in, and by uploading a test run to Vimeo, we can now confirm that Goshdarn Series 2 will DEFINITELY be all in HD! Woohoo!

As before, we'll be doing a video a week for six weeks - every Thursday here and on Vimeo, and every Saturday on YouTube. Unless we forget/our internet connection annoys us.

And now the date for our first video can be confirmed - the 21st of May!

... I'm pretty sure that's a Thursday ...

Fancy Little Widget

On the right, just below the beautiful picture of Sam and myself (which, FYI, comes up in Google Images if you type in either of our names!) you will see three little thumbnails with the ... thumbnails ... from our three most recent videos.

This is handy because then you don't have to click on 'More Videos' and then find the one you want. It's an easy way to see the latest videos from the website.

However, just to warn you, by clicking on the thumbnail, you will leave the website. If you've never been to Vimeo before, then it'll be an entire awesome adventure! But because Goshdarn loves Vimeo, we thought it'd be cool.

So go and check out the videos if you haven't already. And if you have, then go and do it again just to test out the new widget.

Day of Emergency!

The title for this post originated from the Latin word, Goshdarnicus, which is the pluperfect term of Goshdus, meaning 'incredibly sexy and awesome'. It's an adjective. - Sam Walls [Book XXXXXXXII ... all of it.]

There is no better day, than that day in which a thing is conceived which lives to be greater than day itself. - Tom Rippon [Book IV, Chapter III, Verse VII, Word VIII]

In honour of Goshdarn's second birthday we have quoted famous philosophers. They weren't famous for being philosophers, and they were only famous amongst the people that knew them, but they were famous philosophers, nonetheless. They came up with such proverbs as 'Worship Goshdarn, and you shall worship yourself.' [Sam Walls Book I]

What we're getting at here is that we are more than false idols... SHUT UP SAM!

No, what we're getting at today is...

Have you never wondered why another name for the Earth is Goshdarn? We created it!

Silencio, fool! Today is the 15th of April. No Sam, not 1972! 2009!

For the more aware friends of Goshdarn, you will know that the date can only mean one thing. Today is the birthday of Goshdarn! We share it with the greats: Leonardo da Vinci, Emma Watson, and Japanese actor and singer Daiki Arioka!

Two years today!

Thanks to all our good friends and fans for the support they've given us over this time!

We love you long time.

The End Of An Era!

So, today is the 9th of April, and unfortunately - as happens to all good things - Goshdarn Series 1 has to draw to a close.

It's been six awesome weeks, and six (hopefully) awesome videos. Thanks to everybody that's watched and subscribed and commented and loved over that short space of time.

But, sadly, it has to end some time. And so, it gives us great pleasure to end Goshdarn Series 1 with one of the most exciting, climactic and potentially confusing storylines ever used for a Goshdarn video. This is Dinner Date.

Dinner Date from Goshdarn on Vimeo.

We hope you have enjoyed the last six weeks as much as we have, because ... well ... we really have.

Thanks to everybody who has made Goshdarn Series 1 a success! We love all of you!

Goshdarn Series 1 Finale!

So, unfortunately Goshdarn Series 1 is drawing to a close. This Thursday is our emotional final video. But holy mother of Abraham Lincoln, it's going to be freakin' off the wall!

The final video is finally finished. Finally.

Today Sam, Joe and myself wrapped up Goshdarn Series 1 with a climactic twist! Well, five actually.

I've just finished editing, and I really want to tell everybody everything about it, but unfortunately that can't be done until Thursday. Only two days, though!

Make sure you don't miss the Goshdarn Series 1 finale, here on

But c'mon, let's face it, you'd have to be an idiot for missing it!


Friday, 3 April 2009


Well. It's late. And I can tell you, it's all Tom's fault. All of it. Yup. Yessir.

No. It's my fault really. But here it is anyway!

Bloodlust from Goshdarn on Vimeo.

*Tom takes over*

Definitely Sam's fault. Fo sho mo fo.

I'd just like to take a momento to thank the band Slitvein for letting us use this song for the video. Head over to to check out more of their music.

But to tell the truth, I'm quite scared. We emailed Slitvein a while back, asking them if we could use the song, and explaining what would happen in the video. I just hope they have good senses of humour...

But seriously, major awesome-points to Slitvein, and make sure you at least check out their MySpace. And as far as I know, their first album will be released this year! I'll be buying it.

Wallpaper Prince and L4D. And Duran Duran.

I'm shouting at Sam because he's playing Left 4 Dead instead of the website. But at least he's teaching Zoey a lesson.

I'm shouting at Tom because he's making me do this. At least... Erm... I'm awesome. "Your old mans a dab hand with a guitar m'boy!"

I just died and Sam's the only one left alive. And there's a Tank. And we're on advanced. We're all dead now.

He hit a car at me! What was I supposed to do! He's so strong...

Anyway, here's a video. It's about wallpaper and dragons.

Wallpaper Prince from Goshdarn on Vimeo.

Now I'm going to talk a bit about Duran Duran.

Duran Duran are an English music group from Birmingham, United Kingdom. They were one of the most commercially successful of the 1980s bands and a leading band in the MTV-driven 'Second British Invasion' of the United States. Since the 1980s they have placed 14 in the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart and 21 in the Billboard Hot 100 and have sold more than 70 million records. For more information on Duran Duran, visit your local library, or Wikipedia.

My favourite Duran Duran song is either 'The Wild Boys' or 'Girls on Film'. But it's a very close call.

Sam doesn't like Duran Duran. He must be gay.

Gangsta Rap Battle

Sam's on speakerphone to me right now, and we're going to engage in a super-cool rap battle for y'all.

I'm a hippety hop,
Won't stop 'til I drop,
Badass kinda dude,
And I am super rude,
So prepare to be nanged,
Cuz here come my gang,
We're gonna pwn you,
There's nuffin yous can do!

You know I don't stand for your bizzle,
Because I'm the rizzle nizzle fizzle,
I like to play with the dawgs,
Because they don't judge me for who I am,
My jeans aren't too tight,
To contain all my might,
You're gonna get beat-down,
When I'm around town.

I'll pop a cap in your face!

I'll get you with a large mace!
I'll beat you in a game of Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yes, you're probably correct because I've never played it.

Sam just realised that we could turn this into a video! It'd be awesome!

Thanks for listening, peace out dawgs!

I have a problem... The Game.

I was going to wait a little longer to write this entry, because you may not have read the last one or watched the video, but I couldn't wait - I have a burning problem.

It's obvious to me that Goshdarn viewers are intelligent and somewhat witty individuals, otherwise why would they endure such hilarity? For fun you say? I don't think so...

Anyway, as some of you may know, there is an epidemic sweeping the nation, and as far as I know, the world. This epidemic is in the form of a game. The Game. For those of you who are unaware of The Game, let me summarise the rules for you:

1. If you think about The Game, you lose The Game.
2. If you lose The Game, you have to shout it out.
3. If somebody else loses The Game and tells you, you too have lost The Game.
4. Although this doesn't always apply, you have an hour period in which thinking of The Game doesn't make you lose. This is only after you have just lost The Game. Consider it to be a 'respawn time'.
5. You can never win The Game.

Now, at school, I have a varying amount of 'cool teachers', and one of the more cool ones has recently learnt of the existence of The Game. This was probably the biggest tragedy to befall the entire world.

In a lesson on Tuesday, he scrolled down the board, and there it was, in big chunky board-marker letters... 'THE GAME'. This caused everybody in the classroom to lose The Game. Me and a friend then decided to have our vengeance, and put a note saying 'The Game. Love Tom and Jake' in his office, where he would find it. However, he was warned of this, and as a result didn't lose. The score is now 4-1 to him, and he now has an accomplice in the form of my old English teacher.

This is where you guys come in. We need your help to foil his evil schemes. If you can come up with an original (and preferably legal) way of getting our score up, it will be very greatly appreciated. The only trick that has worked is writing it on our shoes then putting our feet up during the lesson. If you think you guys can top that, please let me know!

Sorry if I'm only just now bringing The Game to your attention.

Bathroom Break and Series 2 News!

So here I am, at my desk, eating a McVitie's Penguin, and wondering to myself, what's so awesome about Thursdays? Then I remember... New Goshdarn videos!

Bathroom Break from Goshdarn on Vimeo.

Now, I know we're only three videos in to Series 1, but I've got some exciting news about the next series.

Yesterday I got a new Sony Handycam. I won't bore you with the technical mumbo-jumbo (mostly because I don't understand it myself) but I will tell you this one thing...

Sony Handycams, or at least the one I have, are HD. This means that as of Series 2, Goshdarn videos will be filmed in HD. Now, whether or not they are uploaded to here or Vimeo or YouTube or what-have-you is a different matter, but it's definitely going to be utilized to the full extent that it can be. We've unfortunately done all the videos for Series 1, so there won't be any HD Goshdarn videos for now, but hopefully Series 2 will see a new dawn, and maybe even before that - Goshdarn's birthday is the 15th of April, so there's sure to be a new video then.

That's about it though. Oh, but before I forget...

What's a penguin's favourite Aunt?


According to McVitie's, that's the quality of humour that's acceptable these days. Shocking.

Science Coursework

Argh! I can't do it!

Basically, at school we have to write a 2000 word essay on a particular science-y subject. I chose "Who is to Blame For Obesity". After 1121 words, I have nothing left to say. And it's due in on Friday. On the same day as a Maths exam.

I know it shouldn't be particularly hard, but still... I can't do it...
Aw, phooey.


Tuesday, 17 March 2009

Our Vimeo Homepage

This will lead you to our newly-done profile page on Vimeo - the site where we have started hosting our videos, as well as YouTube.

I've just spent the last hour or so on the site editting our page and watching some videos. It wasn't until earlier that I realised that the company also does Collegehumor videos (a personal favourite YouTube channel of mine) and this inspired me to put a little more effort into our Vimeo account, and so here I am!

So if you like what you see, make an account (it only takes a second!) and subscribe to us. Don't tell anybody this, but I think Vimeo is much better than YouTube. But YouTube gets more exposure, so it's a difficult choice to make. Maybe when we feel that we're on our feet we'll ditch YouTube. They've become kinda rubbish since they were bought out by Google anyway...

Much love to all and thanks for the support with the new video!

Cleansing Wipes and The One Word Game...

Tom! I tried that "never fail" kisssing technique! It didn't work. All I got was a slap in the face and a knife in the guts.... Damn, I'm good.

Here's a new video!

Cleansing Wipes from Goshdarn on Vimeo.

We've decided to write some more stuff. Well, I have. Tom. It's me writing at the moment. Okay... Ideas...

Let's justify the lateness of this video. Not that anybody noticed, but this video was supposed to be on the website yesterday (Thursday). But due to my [insert appropriate insults here] Interweb connection, and Sam's hectic extra-curricular schedule, it had to be pushed back. So there. But it'll be on YouTube tomorrow.

And now for a one word story! Huzzah! (Started with Sam, and then Tom, and yaddah yaddah yaddah.)

Once ... there ... was ... no ... narwhals ... and ... narwhals ... ruled ... nothing. Except ... nothing. Including ... a ... noob. He ... deershanked ... energy-legs ... resulting ... in ... Vietnamese ... rats ... swarming ... him.

Finish it yourself in the comment section. All 4 of you!

How To Stop Girls Rejecting You

If you're sitting at home, and you have time to watch the Goshdarn videos and read our blog posts, the likelihood is that you don't have a girlfriend. It sucks, as me and Sam both know.

But whilst checking the Goshdarn emails, a little ad popped up asking me if I wanted to know how to get girls to like me. How convenient!

The above link will tell you how to kiss a girl without being rejected. Apparently.

All I want to know is how did Google decide that this was a relevant ad to show me as I check my emails?

What's more, I just realised what a fantastic potential video this could be...


Sunday, 8 March 2009

Fantastic Response!

It's great to see people commenting on the new video, even if it's only like 7 comments at the moment!

I love the amount of people saying things like 'It's good to see you guys again!' and all that jazz, because it makes us feel like our efforts are appreciated. So thank you all.

Our next video is up here this Thursday, don't miss it for your life! I'm not actually sure which one it'll be, I need to speak to Sam about that, but who cares? They're all freakin' awesome!

So, in conclusion, thanks to everybody for making our comeback so worthwhile!


Thursday, 5 March 2009

New Video! Hoorah!

Howdy Folks! It's me! That loveable scamp, Sam!

Yup. I remembered to do this! All on my lonesome!

...I definately did not phone up Tom crying for help. Nope. No sir.

Anyway, enjoy. It's the Goshdarn Show!

Goshdarn are Gay

That's right, we're coming out, apparently.

Whilst looking through some old videos on YouTube - specifically 'In T3h W1ldeey' - I chuckled to myself at the hilarity of Goshdarn. But when the video ended, and the links to related videos appeared, I witnessed something that did NOT make me laugh. Well, it did a little. My exact thoughts were:

'This is going on the blog!'

And this is what it was...

'The Truth Is Out...I Admit I'm Gay'. On behalf of the world: WTF?! That's fine if this 11 year-old, or so he appears, is coming out. Good for him. Stop hiding from the world, man! But what has that got to do with our video? Let's find out...
The tags for this video are the following:
goshdarn, sam, walls, tom, rippon, wilderness, wildy, gangster, lost, runescape, tv, show
And the tags on his video are:
the, truth, is, out, I, admit, I'm gay, Hugh, admits, he's, xxgamingmazterxx
HOW ARE THESE RELATED?! Somebody, please tell me. I'm actually asking you people, comment and tell me! I'm genuinely confused. And not about my sexuality, ha ha, funny!
I just don't understand. What are the point in tags if they link to totally irrelevant videos...?
And what's more, why can't I go onto a new line when I'm writing this?!
The world is messed up...

Tuesday, 3 March 2009

This Thursday...

Sam was supposed to tell you all about this, but he hasn't yet, and time is ticking, so it's probably best that I let you know myself!

I'm currently sitting in my Media room, with Karen looking over my shoulder in anticipation. Jordan is stroking my face, but that's normal.

Anyway, as some of you may have noticed... IT'S FREAKIN' MARCH!

If you're a clever-clogs (unlike Karen) you may have realised that it's time for Goshdarn to release their first video of 2009!

It'll be on the website on Thursday the 5th of March, and YouTube on the Friday after. It's freakin' off the hook/wall etc.

It's about time that they're all released, so prepare for the most exciting and awesome six weeks of Goshdarn history!


Tuesday, 24 February 2009


Man, I just had a very close encounter with eternal doom. Sam would have ripped my heart right out.

I was on the Blogger general site, and was looking at some other people's blogs, and saw that some have more than one page to them. I decided that I wanted one!

So I typed into Google 'Blogger Templates' and found one I liked. So I was experimenting around and accidentally deleted the original. I pooped myself a little. After realising that I should have saved the HTML code for the original, I panicked and quickly put the original back together.

Can you notice the screwups or any other major changes? I really hope not...

Breathe, Tom. Breathe...


Building up a Gallery...

Just a quick one to show you this...

If you're a Goshdarn website regular, you probably know about our potentially 'Number One Fan' Fernando from Argentina. I just read an email he sent us, and attached to it was this beauty!

I really think we're building up a Goshdarn gallery. I might sort out the website to accomodate it... Hmm...

New Goshdarn Photos

Whilst filming a new video and editting a further two, Sam and I decided that we needed a new background image for our YouTube page, due to Sam's dad claiming that it's too confusing, or something to that effect...

So, we whacked out a camera, took some snaps, and then proceeded to 'hire' my good friend Karen to Photoshop them for us. Being the brilliant mastermind that she is, it was done within hours, and she emailed them back to me, and below are what I think are the best three.




Damn, that takes up a lot of room... But it's so worth it! Look how super-cool they are! Oh my God!

Right, well, that's pretty much it. There'll be another update on Sunday, because me and Sam should be filming and hopefully editting the last two for this 'series' as I am calling it. We'll also hopefully decide on a release day and the date for our first video. The anticipation is really getting to me now. I'm not even kidding, but I have butterflies right now, just thinking about how cool it's going to be!

I'm going to update the YouTube page now, so hopefully within a few moments you should see some exciting changes!

See all our videos...

I have to write this quick-sharp because I'm heading off to school in a moment...

But over the last two days I've been working my bum off to try and make all the videos able to appear on the site, and last night, if you were reading the blog, you would have noticed some changes...

First of all, you can now email us by clicking on the link above, as well as checking our YouTube and Facebook as normal. But what's newest is the thing on the right.

Where is used to say 'Recent Videos' you could click on links to our three most recent videos and watch them via YouTube. But now... (dad-da-da-da!) can just click on this link that says 'More Videos' and it'll take you to another blog with every video we've released on it. That should make everything easier for you lovely people.

Well, I've got to hit the road now, but I hope my time and slaving away has been worth it!

Goshdarn is Goshdarn In Spanish

After discovering our first foreign fan (that can't speak English, Fernando!) had left a comment on a post (Goshdarn Series 1) I decided to find out what he was saying. Fortunately I took Spanish as a GCSE. Unfortunately I got an E. Therefore - as I told Fernando - I don't really qualify to translate accurately. So, with a little help from Google Translater, I translated the following...

¡¡¡¡¡¡¡qué tíos más ocurrentes sois vosotros!!!!!!!! ¡vaya que me habéis hecho desplomar de risa con vuestros videos, coño! joder si estos tíos nacieron para hacernos carcajear,, perdonadme por no saber decir ni jota, es que me niego a escribir al revés de simón, un cariño desde españa

Google gave me the following translation:

¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ More silly you are what you guys !!!!!!!! Oops collapses that have made me laugh with your videos, p*ssy! f*ck if these guys were born to make us laugh,, perdonadme for not knowing jack say is that I refuse to write upside down Simon, a love from spain

As far as I can translate from Google (they might as well be speaking their own language) it means the following:

You guys are very silly. Your videos are so funny that you make me collapse. These guys were born to make us laugh. Pardon me for...

Then I get very confused and give up. But thanks to Simon for that!


Sneaky Peeky


As promised though, here are some sneaky peek pictures of what we were filming only yesterday... The context and the shoddy camera-work will all become apparent come March. Only three more videos to film, and only four more to edit. The anticipation is killing me...

Goshdarn 'Series 1'

Sam and I are now well on our way to having all of our videos ready for March! We've filmed three out of the six, and I have editted one myself, but the other two need some work.

I am personally really excited about what's to come in March, and it's going to be awesome. Super-cool. I really want to say more, but I'm not sure if I can/should. It's very tantalising.

On another note, we've had about three days off school de to snow, which doesn't happen very often, so that was quite cool. That gave us some time to film and edit, and we've got some time off coming up, and we've got all the videos planned out, so we're not that worried about meeting the deadline. I imagine that the first video will be released as soon as March hits, and March 1st is a Friday, so as things seem, Friday could well be the 'Goshdarn' day. Of course, if Friday was the day for YouTube, Thursday would be the website release. I canne' wait.

Sneaky-peeky photos will hopefully be coming soon, so keep an eye open. And be patient - it'll be worth it in the end.

Goshdarn's Super Fanbase!

We have an amazing fanbase now, with 238 YouTube subscribers (which granted doesn't seem like a lot of people, but imagine fitting them all into a room!) and we have recieved several emails from people who watch our videos.

And just now, I logged on to to check our emails, and I was surprised and most pleased to stumble across an email from a lovely 'artsy-fartsy' (as he put it) fan of our videos, with an amazing history. After saying what he initially wanted to say (which I shall not divulge until later, providing everything works...) he attached this little piece of artwork...

How cool is that?! Very, is the answer to that question/demand/statement. I just wanted to boast about it a little bit. Thanks to Keith for this magnificent spectical!

Tom and Sam's Grand Adventure Home III

Today we went to Oxford! Below is a documentation of our exciting adventure - walking home from the bus stop! Exciting stuff...

















These are just some of the best photos, but the rest can be found on our Facebook, so head on over there!

Other than that, there's not much more to tell. We just hoped you guys would appreciate are ability to communicate a story using photography, instead of the usual media methods...

It's Me! Sam!

That's right. For once, I'm writing on the blog. Well, it's that or prepare for my English oral (giggle) exam.

So, guys. I'm really sorry for the delay/lack of videos recently. But me having a bunch of exams recently and Tom being so, so far away, we finding it really hard to film/edit. But we are trying.

We've got at least 3 videos lined up that just need to be edited, and Tom's told you about the half term plan, so yeah. It's gonna be great.

Don't leave us. We need you guys.

I'm going to try and cram as much as possible into this small space of blog...

Well, first things first - the bad news... My hard drive has busted. That means I've lost everything; videos, pictures, and most importantly, my Drama Portfolio, due tomorrow. Fun! But don't worry about the videos, because Sam (I think) has most of them on his PC too, and I have all of them up to 'A Freakin' Year!' backed up. And even then, all of them are on YouTube, so I'm sure I can find a way to hack and download them back to myself.

Now, the gooooood news! Yesterday, we filmed the first Goshdarn video of 2009, and it's going to be brilliant! Here's a quick snapshot of the hilarity than went on yesterday...

Although that has nothing to do with the video, we couldn't resist having a picure of Sam (our camera-type-guy) wearing a TV outfit. That's what he's supposed to be. The costume was made for a Goshdarn video that is yet to be filmed, but that's the first time anybody from the public has seen it, so yeah...
Anyway, I'm getting sidetracked. The big news is that we're not putting up any new videos until around March. The reason for this is that after that time, we're going to be doing a video every week for 6 weeks, then taking a 6 week break, and so on. That way, it gives us time to film really cool videos, and you'll know exactly when to expect a new one!
We're planning on allocating a day for our new videos, but at the moment, the plan is to release them on the website the day before they go on YouTube, but we're not sure if that'll work just yet.
So that's it. Six videos are coming your way around March, and expect them to be AWESOME!

Shotgun - First Post of 2009!

Oh, I'm too cool.

Just to warn you, don't expect any videos for a little while, but do expect a big surprise that with it will bring a whole host of fun, and a little bit of wee. You'll love it.

I'm not sure if I let anybody know about this, but by looking just above, you should be able to subscribe to our RRS feed. Or maybe it's RSS. I have no idea. And also, we now have a Facebook group. You'll join, they all do... The link is both at the top of the page, and right here:

Hopefully that'll work. Or you'll be able to hack into my Facebook account. Either way, that's surely motivation to make you support us in every way possible!
