Tour de Nerdfighting 2012, Portland

Sunday I got to see John and Hank Green perform at the Bagdad theater. It was pure awesome.

I got some footage of the event, which is below. Unfortunately I couldn’t get everything, and my camera has issues when filming inside, so the footage could be better. I regret that I didn’t get any film of John reading from The Fault in Our Stars or talking about the book, but I got Hank’s song inspired by the book, and some of them messing around. Hank Sock also makes an appearance.

The merch line and signing line were insane, but when I finally made it to the two of them, they were both really nice in person. John seemed genuinely glad to meet me, even though he was meeting hundreds of people. And although Hank seemed a little less comfortable with the celebrity status, he was equally welcoming. Of course I wish I could have sat with them for awhile and had a real conversation, but at least I got them to sign my stuff!

Don’t forget to be awesome!
