Inspired by an IRC post:
You are on an improv team, along with 7 clones of you.
1. What is your team name?
2. What music do you come out to?
3. What warmups do you do?
feel free to add other questions
2. “St. Elmo’s Fire” by John Parr (cued. at 1:09)
3. Superheros, Why Were You Late, Made Up Hot Spot
Okay, I’ll play.
1. The Millionaires.
2. “Mr. Me Too” by Clipse featuring Pharell Williams. (I originally would’ve picked “The Next Episode” by Dr. Dre, but I already had T.R.U.C.K.S. come out to that song.) Or “A Milli” by Lil Wayne.
3. Pointy Categories, Demand A Dance, Beastie Boys, Character-Matching Hotspot
If we (I) were a Harold team, we (I) would do an organic opening.
So far, I’m really digging it. One of the things I like about the show is that shit happens right away. The producers don’t spend an entire season stacking plot dominoes only to knock some of them down in the season finale — they stack ‘em, allow you enough time to notice they’re there, and then deal with them immediately. But, they’re always introducing new plot points and new conflicts, so you never get the “Where do they go from here?” feeling. That’s really satisfying and makes me want to see even more.
I also watched the first episode of Season 2, which is already pretty insane.
One of my favorite things to do is to hunt for and act on bargains. There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get when you buy something at a price way below what it should cost.
I’ve been making some pretty big electronics purchases lately and I think I’ve done a good job saving money. Consider:
I bought a brand new PS3 for $339. It normally retails for $400. I also bought a bunch of games for it on Amazon.com, GameStop, and Craigslist. They’re all used, but it’s obviously cheaper than buying them new.
I also bought a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP on which to play my PS3. It is the best 24-inch monitor on the market. Brand new, it sells for $619. I bought it refurbished for $486 (taxes and shipping are included in that price). It looks and performs like it was brand new and it even has additional firmware installed on it which makes it work even better.
I bought Logitech PC speakers (with a sub-woofer!) online for about $73. Best Buy was selling this model for a hundred bucks. These speakers sound amazing.
I also bought a 6-foot HDMI cable from New Egg for $9.99. It works perfectly. At Best Buy, the cheapest 4-foot HDMI cable will set you back a whopping 70 bucks.
Today, I bought a ridiculously fast wireless router (according to CNET) that comes with a USB port so I can set up network storage. Normally, this type of router costs at least $100. This particular router, for instance, sells for $130. I bought it today for $77.
If you didn’t see Harold Night tonight, you missed out, losers. THE Robin Williams decided to come by the theater (again) and sit in with an improv group - in this case, Bangs.
The show was awesome! Unlike the last time he unexpectedly dropped by the UCB (for ASSSSCAT), Mr. Williams really seemed on the ball! In fact, he made moves that were both on point and fun, not just arbitrary and weird. Meanwhile, the members of Bangs seemed both excited and in control of the show, which is always something you want to see from a Harold group. As Brian Faas said afterwards, the show was filled with great and memorable “Harold moments.”
Yay Harold Night!
