Still 'Ian'

Wow. Today has been pretty crazy. I've had alot of attention. So this video is for all the people who have been watching for a while.

Click here for the quicktime version.

I should probably say thanks to everyone who has commented / emailed me or IM'ed me today and to the sites that have shouted me out today. Thanks!

Hello Mr. Letterman-O'Brian-Mills,

Good job. Keep it up. Don't drop the Challenge Ian thing just because it's popular.

I kept waiting for you to turn around and show an ad on the back of our shirt. But no! Hey, Ian! You are that same wacky guy. Keep up the good work.

you've become quite the star now.
glad your "still Ian"...somewhat.

there's a stage behind you

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

Hello Ian,

Congrats on your article in the New York Times. I'm a vlogger as well, however, I'm also involved in the "big bad mass media" that many vloggers love to hate. If you ever do decide to "sell out" and go for the comedy route, let me know. I would love to introduce you to Hollywood. You can google me if you wish, My name is Cheryl Shuman.

My personal vlog is and

We're developing talent from the vlogging community that are looking to expand their markets.

You're a very talented young man! Keep up the great work.

God bless,
Cheryl Shuman

It could be the same article as the one in the New York Times, but in the July 26 Globe and Mail (Canada) there is an article. It has two screen captures from your videos along with it.
I can't remember which section of the paper, though.

I'm so-and-so, and here's my
so-and-so blog, you got recognition
and hits, and I want those. I'm an
anarchist, I'll never sell out, but please
discover me, please, please, please...
I hate this videoblogging stuff, I just
want the fame and money.

lol Ian,

the thing is

those 320x240 pixels ARE your stage. you just don't recognise it as a stage.

so there, you are cured, voila.

but still,

don't wear a crappy tie every time from now on.

congrats on the fame, or something. keep doing what you are doing, keeping pushing limits, and oh boy i am looking forward to what your 06 project will be ;)

what happened to the good old days when I was only one of three comments ... anyway, it's good to see that stardom has had no effect on you ... and, of course, when I'm trying to get a front row seat to your first sold out video blogging concert at Wimbly stadium, you'll remember I'm the guy that always commented and you'll get me in for half price

... congratuations on the NYT article .. you deserved it ... you the man!
