Hay guise!

First off, WE’RE SO SORRY about the technical difficulties. We’re not sure what happened here, since it never really happened on YouTube before, but our stream just died. DIED! We had to make a new one. Here’s the first one, which is only 5 minutes long or so, but it’s where you can see our friend Brendon, who was in our Gangnam Style video from a while ago:

 

Our real, full, somewhat-error-free livechat, is embedded as the main video above. I hope that one worked properly. We had to scramble to try to get it ready.

As for today’s awesome packages, thanks to:

Kellie, a Canadian in Hong Kong
Ng from Switzerland, but from the Philippines
Teppie and Vicky from Atlanta and Milwaukee
Brenda from Nova Scotia
Jo-Ann, a Malaysian from Melbourne, Australia

Side note: I’m noticing this trend in packages, maybe it’s just this batch of them, of people living in other countries. It’s like, an expat party! We also saw that in other packages. I’m sure we got a package from someone from Canada living in Scotland, and another package from someone visiting Korea, or something like that. Cool!

Also, just for future reference, though we mentioned it in the LiveChat, we’re going to emphasize it again: WE WILL NEVER MESSAGE YOU ON YOUTUBE FOR A CONTEST. Never ever! Don’t fall for any spammers trying to get you to register for any sites. I’m still shocked that someone would do that. Is it because they thought we’re popular enough to be impersonated, or is it someone with a grudge against us for continually calling Batoost Batoost. BATOOOST! Look, there’s a site telling you how to pronounce their name. Don’t get mad at us for it! If it’s on the internet, it must be true. And, uhhmm, sure we might have made that site ourselves but that doesn’t matter…does it?

As for the winner of the Batoost CD, congrats to Yang Yoda for winning. Yay! Send us a message via YouTube so we can confirm that it’s you, and we’ll send out your CD ASAP. And thanks to everyone for watching. We’re going to keep on giving out CDs and other fun stuff from time to time. Maybe something again for next week? Though, I’m not sure when we’re going to do next week’s LiveChat, since we’ve got something big we’re doing Friday-Saturday. Hmm…

  1. Hello, Martina and Simon! I am enjoying watching your videos since so many years ago. I found that you guys do the live chat every Friday. How & What time can I watch it and leave comments in real time?

    Dear Martina,
    I started to tear up as soon as I saw you getting emotional. I’m sure you felt very vulnerable on camera considering that you couldn’t edit that out. Thank you for sharing your amazing and exciting life with me and the other nasties. I think its safe to say that on behalf of all the nasties we are honored to be apart of your life, in good times and in bad.

  3. HOLY – ended up needing an entire roll of paper when you started to cry. FIGHTING Martina and Simon!!! It is really hard when someone you love goes away :((( But remember – like my grandpa and grandma – the look down at you and laugh with you all the time!!!! LOVE for you both!!
    Oh and for the record – Bordgames and Cardgames RULES!!!! More of that for the people ;D

  4. In Australia Kindergarten- year 6 is primary school and then Year 7 -12 is high school. Some states have high school from year 8- 12. Most of the time there is no middle school in Australia with exceptions to few private schools. After six years of high school I swear your so over it and just want to finish. Martina you were so luck you were able to arrange your timetable I couldn’t do that in my high school not even in the final year. Although I did get less classes which is always a plus. On the down side I used all of my breaks to study with the extra work they were giving us. I had no breaks and free time in my final year of high school

  5. My cousin in Ottawa was in the last year that had grade 13. But as I understand it, grade 13 was like uni prep. meanwhile, if you go to the U of M(anitoba) you have to take university 1 to sort of introduce you to university and figure out what route you want to take.

    I felt so old hearing everyone talking about being on summer break, college exams, and graduating. I’m an older Nasty lol and was getting for work this morning when the live chat was happening. And wow rum horchata. I’ve never thought about adding alcohol to my horchata. Here I was drinking it like Kool-Aide pfft alcohol infused horchata next time it is.

  7. pepperandice

  8. Ok, so is fashion really as crazy there as people say it is? People alwasy say the street fashion is crazy, but I don’t if that’s true.

    For the American side of the flag, we have 50 states, and many people from all the states send you stuff. So I think the obvious answer is sending our state flag. :)

    I feel for you, Martina. *hugs* I got strep throat once years ago and after that I
    have been CONSTANTLY losing my voice T.T It is super frustrating. My
    doctor said that a lot of it is due to allergies or something, but
    unless I’m allergic to *life* I don’t think it accounts for everything.

    What sort of voice exercises did you get? Nasties, do you know of any throat helpers?

  11. I’m so surprised about the alcoholic drink (rum&horchata) from the last package because horchata it’s a typical sweet drink from Spain, and usually we -I’m from Spain- drink it on summer. and I’ver never seen before the mix between rum & horchata, probably it’s too sweet.

    I put the link form wikipedia about horchata http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horchata

    P.S: when you drink it very very cold it’s so awesome.

  12. Initially I wanted you guys to do a vid for songs you hate since sometimes you say you don’t like a song in your update but it is true that you’ll probably get some hate feedback. It’s not a good idea to have a whole video dedicated to something negative :/

  13. You know, that Batoost site is actually how I first found you guise… :)

    OMG guy from In Time With You on the Pretz !!!

    Actually, Seungri can speak English pretty well. It’s Daesung and TOP I’m not too sure about…

  16. Hi! FYI the haze in Singapore was caused by Slash and Burn in Indonesia, and PSI(Pollutant Standard Index) has gone up to 400 today(which is hazardous) when usually its 20-30. Visibility is very poor and there’s a smell of burnt wood everywhere. I hope all Singaporean, Malaysian and Indonesian Nasties stay healthy!

    Just a note: if you are wondering why there are so few comments it is because you can get to this page from the twitter link but it’s totally not showing up as a link from the main eyk page.

    Great live chat, even with the scramble. Have to work now, will comment more later.

    • I’m not sure why it’s not showing up. Our caching is pretty aggressive, so that we can try to get faster pageloads, but it sometimes comes at the expense of not refreshing right away, and showing older content instead of what’s new…

    LOVE THE BATOOST SITE <3

    • The Nova Scotia package totally made me all emotional since it’s been two years and I’m home sick but I’m planning a trip Canada Day weekend and it just reminded me of all the things I want to get while there! I love saltwater taffy!!

      Also, love the picnicface video, I’ve never seen that one!

    Hi Simon and Martina,

    I think this is the camera strap that you received.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Camera-Wrist-Strap-Hand-Grip-for-Canon-Nikon-Sony-Pentax-Olympus-SLR-DSLR-/170913169506

    Hope this helps. :)

      Omfg, I just found that too!

      I think it works like this:

      1) You take the screw section of the strap, then attach it to your tripod mount on the bottom of your camera.
      2) Attach the other end of the strap to a hook/ring somewhere on top of your camera, usually near the shutter button.
      3) Adjust accordingly, so it fits Martina’s hand or Simon’s dothraki man warrior hands.

      I actually think this is pretty clever, since you can use a tripod and attach the strap at the same time.
      Hope that helps too! :)
