, we're survivors just like destiny's child in that one song

It's hard to believe that on this exact date four years ago, we launched this site.
We had only three artists to start: Don Was, Harry Shearer and David Wain.
Daily Grace didn't even exist in 2007, when we were born. Did you know that we made her in a factory in late 2008? Yeah, special order from the same company that makes Segways! It's true!
Look at all the people wishing us Happy Birthday:
We're so lucky to have so many good friends...and we count YOU, dear readers, among them. Because if you've found our blog, it means that you REALLY like us... and we like you back. Thanks for helping us survive another year. When we get to 10 years old every single one of us, employee and viewser, will get all-expenses-paid vacations to the Turks and Caicos.* Here's to us AND you! We wouldn't be here without you! Buy yourself a cake and have some of it! Yay!
*Totally, absolutely and appallingly untrue.
(*Actual product will most likely look nothing like this. Also, wings not included.)
Lately, My Damn Channel swag has been flying off the shelves and onto people's bodies at an alarming rate. It seems like everyone wants a new T-shirt in their hands (or on their torso, at least.) After all, who wouldn't want a slice of pie from the larger bakery that is the world of My Damn Channel paraphernalia?
Take My Damn Channel viewser JustNeph... please! When we asked folks to tweet at us with the phrase "I want #MyDamnPen!" Neph responded. And we didn't let his plea fall on deaf ears, hooking him up with not one but TWO My Damn Channel pens, and a MY DAMN CHANNEL STICKER.
And here's our pal Dom Galati donning a sharp new My Damn Channel tee...
And if you want your very own My Damn Channel shirt, you can follow Rocky Rector's example and be the one this week to get the most friends to sign up for our ongoing Versailles sweepstakes. Additional info is here.
Go ahead and sign yourself up, while you're at it. Winner gets a free trip for two to L.A. to meet Versailles (watch it!) co-stars and creators Patricia Heaton and David Hunt. There's only one week left to enter, so if you need to, now would be a good time to buy a working mouse.
The Winners of the My Damn Channel Third Birthday 3Some Video Challenge!
Grace has done a special Winners Vlog, but for those of you who hate watching online video, here's a list:
3rd Place: Three's A Crowd submitted by Ray Holleb
2nd Place: Who My Daddy is? submitted by Mr. Jotz aka Joshua Nicholson
1st Place: The Piña Colada Song submitted by Frank Bullington, Chance McClain and Kevin Ryan
Congratulations to all of our winners, and huge thanks to everyone who submitted a video! You're all winners in our book. It's just that some of you will receive actual prizes as proof that you're winners and some of you will not.

Mardi Gras is here (Jan 30 - Feb 16) and The Saints won the Super Bowl. Mitch Landrieu is the mayor of New Orleans and all seems right in the world.
To celebrate, My Damn Channel threw a Mardi Gras party that was inevitably crashed by our own Grace Helbig and Dave Ahdoot (and ended up being WAY more fun than we intended). Look out for an all new Grace Crashers - presented by Southern Comfort - coming soon!
That's not all - we were paid a surprise visit by two very special My Damn Channel viewsers (Smokybanjo & Puca) who came all the way from Ireland to join in on the fun.
We don't care what that groundhog said last week, Spring is soooo on the way.
