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.

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.

Duran Duran are excellent. As an album track, Friends Of Mine is great too.

[The Band]

It takes me back to the water slides of the early Nineties!
I like Duran Duran! The song I thought of when you mentioned this band is the classic ‘Ordinary World’.

Nobody can deny that the best bands on the planet are British and you invented what we now call 'music', through the genre that opened (and closed) those lovely guys from Liverpool. Although they aren't very well known here amongst the cows and the sunflowers… In fact, I don't remember their name... but I love them and I have all their albums!

I could make a huge list of my favourites; just a glance at my record collection: The Alan Parsons Project, Dire Straits, Radiohead, etc. Old but cool! If that's possible?!
I'm sure your parents know them…

[The Video]

Now I can understand the pictures you posted that week of a heavy snowfall!

To me, genuine good humour is a sure sign of genuine humanity.
Before you can truly share sincere laughter with someone, I think you must first love that person, because this is a deep human act. It would be impossible to share honest laughter with someone whom we didn't appreciate as a human being.

If you ever made a video I didn't like, I would say so. To be honest, I don't like just any kind of humour. I tend to be critical, even Nietzschean. I don’t laugh out loud easily. Few people can provoke such a reaction from me.

Tom and Sam, I find myself increasingly identifying with you and your humour. I find myself enjoying your videos more and more. I think ‘Wallpaper Prince’ is one of the funniest videos you've made! It's extraordinary; a simple idea expressed with spontaneous and hilarious performances! Too funny!

I just thought you should know. Congrats!

[The Game]

Actually, Zoey has a poster of Barney (the Dinosaur) in his room.

I'm at risk of appearing uncool, gay or like a granny who hates violent video games (with my respect to these three ‘antiheroes’). In my opinion, Left 4 Dead is not a game. It is a murder simulator, just as there are flight simulators.
Please don’t be offended, but I think this throws overboard the conception I have of you as teenagers.

Sam, I love video games though, and I have played this game before. I recognise that the argument is attractive and its characters are somewhat fanciful, but these kinds of games generate in you a stimulus of destruction (and self-destruction).

I’m serious. Left 4 Dead is addictive and lead to aggressive behaviour even in a very peaceful person. Needless to say, you're a smart guy.
Come on, please think about it.

Tomorrow is new video day. The Las Vegas odd makers have it 5 to 1 that Tom shall be somehow abused, beaten or mocked by Sam. In other bets, odds are 3-2 that Sam is just up to no good and 4-2 that by video's end Tom shall have something smeared over his face. Whether you're a betting man or not, you can bet it will be good.

Hi guys! How's it going?
I love you as friends, and I really am interested in you. I mean, I’m not a ‘boring princess’ with a lot of time to waste. I was hopping to watch another fabulous video yesterday. What happened?

Just want to remind you that what you do is significant and people enjoy your work very much. Don't be discouraged if you don't have the comments or followers you expected/deserved. Everybody know your videos are amazing and you are very talented and loveable!

P.S. I'm learning your accent with this man,

What do you think? He is like a native! :D
