This graphic might seem a little different from the usual Public Collectors posts, but it emerges from a discussion of a band’s entire collected lyrical output.
Some friends and I were discussing AC/DC song subjects on Facebook and my theory that if you look at the entire AC/DC oeuvre, every song is somehow about fucking. After about 75 comments, it was deduced that “Have a Drink on Me” and “Hells Bells” might be the only songs that are not about fucking (although I’m still not 100% on “Have a Drink on Me”). Fucking, combined with Hell, Balls, Rocking, and Drinking, takes care of everything, however, so to consider this in one neat graphic, I created a pie chart. Thanks to all of the friends who contributed to this scientific study.
My fellow male improvisers and I like to consider ourselves a progressive bunch. Our theaters — many of them female-run — have produced Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and Melissa McCarthy and Broad City. We view the women on our teams as equals, giving us a post-feminism free reign to make light of…
The comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade has a new manual for improvisation that adds further discipline to the Second City lessons on the form.
“It’s joke heavy, fast and funny,” said TJ Jagodowski…”
Finally someone has said it (again)! UCBT IS ALL ABOUT THE JOKES. Level 101: Jokes. Level 201: Better Jokes. Level 301: Jokes! Jokes! Jokes! Level 401: Harold.
"Mr. Napier argues that great improvisation derives from a more childlike part of the psyche, not the muscle memory needed for ballet or driving. “You have to tap into the part of you that plays,” he said, “and the part of you that’s always thinking and adhering to rules and hierarchy and constructs and order and logic is not the part that an audience enjoys.”
Again! Finally someone says it! There is nothing an audience likes more than watching children play. It’s riveting! That’s why all across this great country, theatre after theatre is filled with audiences watching small children play together. Adults using that childlike spirit of play in concert with their more mature abilities of logic and humor is BORING.
