Balloon Animals
Blog post about this video: http://charliemcdonnell.com/balloon-animals/ Special thanks to http://www.balloon-animals.com - totally invaluable recourse for anyone looking to make their own balloon animals. So glad I found it, otherwise this video would have consisted of me blowing up balloons and then staring gormlessly at them, not having a clue where to start. I have about 100 modeling balloons left. Who knows, maybe I'll take this up as an actual hobby. Thanks go to http://youtube.com/entendslamusique for submitting this challenge!

Landmark Rush
I remembered that I lived in London, and that London is a nice place, so I went out into it. Also 10 landmarks in 2 hours or something. "It's time for another Challenge Charlie!" is a thing that I forgot to put at the beginning of this video. OH WELL.

Time To Reply
A slightly more serious song, which you can get here: http://charliemcdonnell.bandcamp.com EDIT: I've noticed that some people seem to think this song is about me wanting to quit YouTube. Just so we're clear: I'm not leaving YouTube. That's not what the song's about. YouTube is groovy.

Dyeing My Hair Red
Read my blog post about this video: http://charliemcdonnell.com/dyeing-my-hair-red/ Subtitle to this video: "How NOT to dye your hair" - looking back at this, the amount that I managed to get on my forehead is just embarrassing. In my defence, I was making a video at the same time, and multitasking is hard.

The Big Bang 2
This song is on the new Chameleon Circuit album, which is available for pre-order now: http://dft.ba/stillgotlegs Blog post about this video: http://charliemcdonnell.com/the-big-bang-2/ A song about the last episode of series 5 of Doctor Who. I thought, seeing as the plot was quite complex, I'd try explain it through song... though it turns out, trying to fit an hour long story into a three minute song just makes things even more complicated. Oh well!

How to be Famous?
Blog post about this video: http://charliemcdonnell.com/how-to-be-famous/ I was going to call this video: "Heat is the biggest load of tripe that has ever pretended to be a legitimate magazine" - but it was a bit too long. True of course, but too long. If you have any opinions of your own on this topic, let me know with a comment or a video response and we'll see if we can get a discussion going! Especially if you're someone who legitimately enjoys Heat Magazine, I'd love to know how your brain works. Carl Sagan T-Shirt from the beautiful http://hirsutehistory.com/

http://charliemcdonnell.com Professor Charlie McDonnell of the McCoollike Important Institution takes you on a journey into the inner workings of the classic teenage boy. Full disclosure: The fake tongue is a real thing, and I've been allowed permission to use the photo in this video under the condition that I show you where you can buy one if you'd like to: http://www.funny-toys-store.com/Magic-Fake-Tongue-Trick.html - They also said they'd send me some free fake tongues, but I declined because seriously, what would I do with a bunch of fake tongues? I'm not receiving anything from Marmite, though I sure wouldn't mind it if they send me some free spread. You either love it or you hate it, and I love it. Yes, those are the 3D glasses that I got when I went to see Avatar.
