You Are Here LiveChat!

We’re back for another LiveChat! And we tried something a bit different today by having it outside! I think the connection wasn’t the best, but we’ll work on bringing our router out farther next time. Woohoo!

Spudgy was in the LiveChat, and other people were there as well. Now, let us know, honestly, how you feel about it. I’m worried that some viewers might be upset if we get distracted from the LiveChat, which we’ll totally understand. Let us know what you think, if you’re ok with other people at the cafe stopping by or not. We take your feedback to heart :D

We, for one, had a great time outside, even if it was scalding hot and I was dying from coughing. But, holy hell, those lozenges from the Philippines should be outlawed. They’re made with something unholy strong! HOT DAMN! I’m still eating it now and I feel like I’m doing something illegal. No? Probably. This is Korea. They outlaw lots of stuff. Echinacea is banned, I’m pretty sure.

Anyhow, special thanks to the lovely people who sent us packages, including:

Anna-Maria Linhard from the UK
Karen Gheysen from Belgium but sent a package when she was in Korea
Brittany Noonan from Idaho, USA

We’re gonna have a lot of fun with that party box of things you can add to your face. We might use it for a really big project we’re working on as well. Hmmm. It’s actually something we’ve been thinking about. We’ll let you know more about it once it’s ready, which should be soon. Eep!

And, on that note, we’re off to head back to the studio. We’ve still got that MyChonny video to finish. It’s such a big video, and the special effects on that are unlike anything we’ve ever done. I’m sorry we couldn’t put it up last night. I think you might understand once you see how big of a video this is. We’ve still got our big announcement and our WTF video coming this Saturday as well, so stay tuned for more videos. Yay!

  1. Okay guys. I have a story to tell because you mentioned something. If I had never glanced down at the suggested videos on Youtube four years ago and watched Bigbang and 2ne1’s Lollipop video, my life today would be completely different. That sounds dramatic, but it’s true. I didn’t really have any passions or interests at that time and I always felt like something was missing. And when I watched that video I immediately fell in love with it and it led me to all of Bigbang and 2ne1’s other videos and the whole world of Kpop in general. If I had never gotten into kpop, I would never have fell in love with Korea and everything about it. If I had never looked on itunes for any kpop songs I could get my hands on, I would’ve never found your podcasts and become the nasty I am today. If I had never seen that video, I wouldn’t have found my passion and probably wouldn’t have wanted to teach there as much I as do now or even know you guys existed. Maybe someday I would’ve come across it after settling on a lifestyle and degree choice I wasn’t really fond of, but I am so glad that was not the case. I know I’m rambling, but the fact that that video is what eventually moved Simon over to the dark side, too kinda hit me right in the feels and I had to let you know :)

  4. This was a great livechat. I think that the “backgrounders” played into juuuuuust enough that it livened it up a little but not too much to distract. Cool packages. I was shaking my head and saying “oh Simon!” as well when he put on the hula bag costume – my son was so embarrassed he couldn’t even look – LOL! I said, if you meet Simon in person, he might even be *more* embarrassing, then what will you do? LMFAO! Don’t ever change Simon, you’re so funny. I like all the changes in Martina’s pink hair, it gives me continuity ;). I do think though, lately you have been wearing so very unflattering dresses Martina, your boobs are just too big for those little Korean dresses. I hope that you find some better ones soon.

    There was essentially no lag this time, only got a little choppy when you moved the camera too much, but it still worked – yay! Success!

  6. I don´t know if you will read this, Simon and Martina, but my sister was the one who visited you today at the cafe. She was wearing a Sailor moon T-Shirt and asked you guys to do a shout out for her sister, Leah (by the way that´s me). Afterwards you signed an Attack on Titan paper.
    Just wanted to say thank you for that. I was unbelievably happy ( and also surprised) when I got home from school and saw a picture from my sister and YOU GUYS! Thanks so much for always being so nice to us NASTIES. Lastly i hope you´ll find the note that my sister and I left at the café when I was still in Seoul. Search for Levi and Sailor Moon (->sister´s letter) and Eren and Pikachu (-> my letter).

  7. Personally, I don’t have any problem with livechat-bombers. Yeah, if you were turning your backs to the camera for long periods of time, or if new people were coming through the video every few minutes throughout the entire chat, that might get annoying or distracting, but as it was here I thought it was fine. I think it’s cool getting to see [you interact with] other Nasties, and if you ask them about their experiences in Korea (like you did here) then it ties into the overall goal of EYK in a way.

    Have you considered/tried getting a harness and a long leash for Meemers? Do they make harnesses that big? ;) Would he even tolerate something like that?

    • Thank you for your input. I’m glad you didn’t find it too annoying :)

      As for cat harnesses, our vet told us that there’s no harness that can 100% sure contain a cat. If they want to slip free, they will. We’re also worried that Meemers will freak out and try to bolt, and I don’t want him hurting himself if he’s harnessed, you know?

  9. My hubby and I had so much fun meeting you guys today! Watching you guys do your live chat was so meta…;) Love the cafe (the nutella milkshake was bomb-diggity) and it was cool to meet other nasties from around the world! (Special shout out to the nice Romanian girl we shared a table with and stalked you guys together while you live chatted.) Thanks for being so cool and taking a picture with me, even when I know you guys are CRAZY busy and needed to head back to the studio. Your videos made this trip to Korea so much easier for us, and seeing you both was icing on the cake. :D

    • Thank you for hanging out with us afterwards! I’m sorry that we were in such a rush to head back. We had a crazy busy day back at the studio. Still going on…but we made some really cool stuff today. You’ll see it soon, I think :D

  10. I’m surprised that you guys didn’t mention or give condolences to Ladies’ Code and EunB. :<

  11. Dashan was in Korea recently and yet somehow despite my best efforts in Tweeting both him and you guys you missed each other. Even Hyunwoo Tweeted him an invite to the You Are Here cafe. You really should get to know about him at least, since he is in a sense an earlier version of you guys: a bridge between East and West. Google the name “Dashan” and you’ll understand.
