Butler has uploaded a video of my commencement address to the class of 2013, which one can’t help but notice…is longer than the 12 minutes I so confidently promised. I sort of quit working the last month and did nothing but write this speech, and I couldn’t even get the time right. (I guess I read a lot faster alone in my basement.)
I’d like to thank everyone who’s shared the speech, especially the Los Angeles Times, Publishers Weekly, Galleycat, and Entertainment Weekly.
When The Fault in Our Stars came out, we were able to release a limited-edition audiobook version narrated by me along with a DVD featuring videos of me talking about the book, a ticket to a concert featuring The Hectic Glow, a Hectic Glow wristband, and postcards featuring scenes from the book.

Song I wrote for a class. There are no effects in this song, just pure voice and Uke how I sang and how I played. It’s pretty much live, except I sing harmonies to myself, which I can’t do live, obviously.
“The Great Perhaps” (lyrics from the novel Looking for Alaska by John Green)
for optimal listening- put yo headphones in :)
I can’t stop listening to this song and crying. It’s the good crying, but f, this is beautiful.
Wow, this is a very good song about Looking for Alaska. Wow.
