Not even going to bother explaining this one. Just watch.

  1. That was awesome. I never actually went to my prom.

  2. I am from Chaska, MN (that's close to the equator right?) We always have about 2 feet of snow outside and need to make sure that every inch of skin is covered with about 3 pounds of fabric before venturing into the snowy tundra. Driving is out of the question...cars that is, snowmobile driving is the main form of transportation from October to March. We also make snow shoes and ice skates look quite stylish, considering they are the only sensible shoes to wear in our climate. So Welcome to Minnesota...Oh wait...You meant you wanted warmer...my bad. (;) Be thankful it's only 6 inches.)

  3. I would say Texas, but lately we have been covered with ice and snow as well. Pretty much all last week, and now they're saying some more this week. I'm afraid the palm tree would not make it here.

  4. Loved the foreign accent. And what ladies don't appreciate a penguin tie and xylophone? Great pics, Karsten!

  5. I must say, every vlog you produce makes me more excited to read Wildfire, and more hopeful Borders screws up and sends my pre-ordered copy before they should. As I was watching this, I got to thinking. I don't know if you have considered this or not, but as a teacher, I would STRONGLY CONSIDER visiting a few schools and speaking with kids. Honestly, they would LOVE you, and it's always awesome when we can find cool, talented people to promote literacy and writing.

    Finally, since Philly has just as much snow as Boston, and does not meet your geographical criteria, I can't really enter your contest. Of course, if you discover a good location, share the wealth. I'm expecting another shoveling day on Thursday...

  6. Well my town isn't that close to the Equator...yet. After me and my friends get done cutting and pasting the world in such a way as we don't have to travel more than a hour to either Texas, Japan or England, it might be closer!

    Ahh your HS pics make mine look so much more normal now! :D

  7. "Like drums for big boys." ROFL, you're a riot! The narration makes it truly fantastic. It's what I image Count Dracula meets The Wonder Years would sound like.

    And while I'd love for your plant (and you) to move to my town, unfortunately, I'm closer to Bean Town than the equator! I'm down for moving too, though....

    Thanks for a good laugh, Karsten! :)

  8. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
    loved the accent, made it look more profesional,
    I'm glad it had a happy ending, you and college gaining 20 pounds, If you were a girl that would have been awful haha.

    you and your palm tree should move here! (Mexico)

    no snow, no freezing cold, lots of beaches and dolphins to swim with! (: I've heard palm trees looooove dolphins...

  9. Dude. The drums for big boys line was SOLID GOLD.

  10. Oh. When I saw this post was about prom, I just assumed there would be dancing. *disappointed*

    You should probably name your plant. They're harder to kill when they're named.

  11. The awesomeness of the plants showcased in this vlog installment was not lost upon me. I hope to see more plant life in future vlogs.

  13. Ha ha.

    You make the awkward high school phase seem so cool.

  14. That was freaking hilarious, as usual. And thumbs up to the awkward high school photos!

    Sadly, my town is the same distance from the equator that Boston is, but we have even more snow than you do. The Great Lakes are so magical.

  15. Karsten that video was great. Thank you for sharing part of your past with us. I'm glad that it made you who you are today. I really enjoyed the accent for the narrative of the video too.

  16. Finally realized who you sound like in the voiceover.

    Strong Bad.

  17. Popped over here from Mary Kole's blog - just wanted to congratulate you on getting a terrific cover. It's stunning.

  18. Love this, the accent is a plus!

  19. Lol, love the narration AND the video, of course. I've yet to go to prom, so we'll see how that goes down... And "frosted twilight?" If only my school was that awesome.

    Also, I'm a new follower & new Wildefire fan. *off to add Wildefire to my 2011 debut author challenge wishlist*

  20. Oh, a contest...and such a good one.

    Okay, well. I have lots of good things about my town. We have corn. Oh, also soybeans. And John Green. But it's not near the equator unless you bend the map like way lots.

    But you can move to my town of birth. Guayaquil, Ecuador. It's on the Equator. Like for real. And it likes palm trees mostly. Oh, also, there is sugar. And bananas. And stick huts. And iguanas. You can't resist iguanas.

  21. Oh my gosh! I think I love you, haha! Prom memories...ugh! My prom was overrun with junior-highers because it was so INCREDIBLY LAME that they couldn't get enough high school students to attend. I spent the night sticking scotch tape to some guy's face. I didn't even know him, and I never learned his name.

    I'm new to your blog, but it is so entertaining. It threatens to keep me from accomplishing any real work. :)

  23. OMG! How did I miss that. Karsten, that's friggin hilarious, and now we know you've got Dimitri from Vampire Academy locked away somewhere, released only when you need a voice over.
