Teachers – Fairy Tales


I recently discovered Teachers, A Web Series, and found these ladies and their shorts extremely funny. Conceived by Matt Miller and The Katydids, Teachers chronicles the misdeeds and awkward interactions of six mid-western elementary school teachers just tryin’ to navigate the pitfalls of internet dating and adult female friendships all while molding America’s youth.

My favorite episode so far is Fairy Tales (above). For more information on Teachers and their episodes, check out their website or follow them on YouTube.

Picutre – So, you want to use the stairs?


 

This impassable staircase is part of the Lloyd’s headquarters building, at the corner of Leadenhall and Lime Street in London. Why a staircase and a pillar were combined in the same area is baffling. Perhaps you’re supposed to slide down the railing? 🙂

iPhone: Get it now, for free!

Excited about Apple’s MacWorld annoucement of the iPhone?

Although it won’t be available in the United States until this summer, you can get one now, for free!

Sounds too good to be true, right?  Well, (it partially is) you can get it now, just “print, cut and fold!” Ta-dah!  Your own non-working iPhone.  Perhaps this will calm your iPhone cravings, at least for now.

Video – Evolution of Dance


This video circulated around the internet a while back, but I stumbled upon it again and was reminded how clever and funny it was.

Judson Laipply is a comedian, or perhaps “inspiration comedian” as this video has titled him. Check out his site  as well as his Wikipedia entry (which includes the song list) for more information about him.

Video – iBlinds


Check out the video satire created by Serge Lipinski with music by James Provan (GiR2007).

The iBlinds are a new generation accessory that interacts with your iPod or iPhone through your window blinds.  Superior performance and technology drives iBlinds to create an innovative and dynamic living room space through your own music.

Serge takes a satirical look at what might be possible in the future, pondering how far will the ‘i’ generation take us? Moreover, how much of it is actually needed?

A few questions about the video, answered by Serge. 1.It took 23 days to make.
2. re:too much spare time?! I did an hour here and hour there,probably a lot less time than those who spend time watching reality TV shows or trauling through videos on youtube to leave spam/negativity.
3.I have never been paid for this.
4.re:Poor animation! Its not perfect,nothing ever is.Its a new product….there are always technical issues.
5. Is real or fake, if you need to question this then the answer is the least of your worries.I say read the description and look up the meaning of satire.
6. re: Where can I get the song, look at James’ (GiR2007) site http://www.gir2007.com
