The Human Flag – This Guy is Strong

I’ve seen some fit people do some amazing things, but what this guy does absolutely blows my mind. Watch him do push ups in the air on parallel bars and hang from a tree sideways like a flag. His strength is ridiculous. Check out some of the crazy moves he does in the video below.

An Online Copywriting Tool for Lazy Improv Groups

The Improv Show Description Generator is great for those of you working in the improv industry, and I actually know someone who is so I’ll have to pass this one along.

If your improv group doesn’t have time to write something up for your upcoming show tonight, you need this service. Type in your group’s name, select the type of show you’re doing and hit the button. You can then plaster this all over the place; flyers, Facebook, Myspace, emails, whatever…

Here’s an example of what it came up with for me.

Furious and campy, Aimless Direction is an unrelenting rocket blast of in-your-face improvisational comedy. Unafraid to sequester , Aimless Direction goes where other shows don’t even dare, exploring topics from the brat pack to D-Day, but still all the while developing engaging, grounded scenework. By the end of their two-act missive, you’ll be talking about it for days. Watch out, because it’s gonna get all-in! Mondays at 11:35pm at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Mmmm, I love Buffalo Wild Wings.

How to Report the News Better than Fox

If you hope to be a newscaster when you grow up, you NEED to watch this video of Charlie Brooker showing exactly how to report the news.

Learn how to walk up to the camera and pause, show video of overweight people and how to keep the audience awake with line graphs and “average-family” statistics.

This video is funny because if you weren’t paying attention to it, you’d think it was an actual report….AND it’s still better than FOX news 😉
