break a leg

Newsweek had a cover story about the Living Web back in April. I re-read it yesterday in the waiting room of my chiropractor's office. The article covers websites full of user generated content like MySpace and YouTube.

Meanwhile, blog reader Willem sent an email that asked:
Can you put a short clip containing some footage of your improv show on your website? Some of us were looking at your site and the Einstein Simplified site, and we were curious if perhaps you have a little footage you can share.
Well, now that you mention it Willem, Paul Simmons has recently posted some video of the group on YouTube. The first clip he posted is funny but it's from a night when it was my turn to emcee, so you don't get to see me play a character other than myself.

Maybe Paul (the computer programmer) or Greg (the television editor) can digitize our appearance on today's Live at Five. I hope I don't jinx the show by mentioning it before it happens. The pressure will be on during a pair of four minute segments. "Whose Line Is It Anyway" used to edit three hours of footage down to a 30 minute show. We will be on live. Since improv is a team sport, there's no guaranteeing which of us will get camera time. Sometimes it's me and sometimes it's not.

That was a great clip but took forever to load. I'll get there to see y'all live one day.

Great clip but painfully slow to load. I gave up! Check out Brookers for help.

Great clip, Thanks!
Didn't take much time at all to load it on my PC.
I'm not going to be able to program my VCR on time to tape the Live At Five footage, but I can digitize (.wmv file) the Live At Five footage if I can get a VCR tape of if.
