Fun Stuff

I don’t like to email tons of people pointing out some fun or interesting web page I saw, so here’s some stuff I nonetheless want to plug to a wider audience (yeah, right, who am I kidding is reading this blog?).

Podcasts

Lonely Planet doesn’t just publish useful travel books, they also put out the occasional travelcast covering various and sundry locations: web site and RSS feed

German humor (yes, it exists) told live by Horst Evers -the funniest man in the universe, according to his publisher- every week: RSS feed

YouTube

Jay Grandin made a lot of entertaining clips, including the widely watched How to Shower: Women vs. Men, and practical everyday advice like Pre-cut bagels suck.

Ernest Friedman-Hill brought the Tales Of Mere Existence by Lev Yilmaz to my attention, e.g. A typical conversation with my mom, Never Visit Your Girlfriend At Work, Procrastination and I have to get ready.

And there are numerous hilarious sketches by Rowan Atkinson, from before he became Mr Bean.

    Hey, look! You have at least one reader. :-) Just 2 podcasts? Any other tips, fun or otherwise? Just subscribed to Horst Evers, looking forward to hearing the funniest man in the universe. Go Ulf and Map! Ulp? Malf? Hmmm.

    I’m afraid there’s no prize for leaving the first comment in this blog … but it’s certainly appreciated! Those two are the only podcasts I follow. The item called “Ein Tag in Berlin” is the best of them, I think. I’ve listened to it multiple times already, and it’s still funny. Some of it may not make sense to non-Berliners, though.
