Funny Bitch Friday: How To Do Anything TV

in Funny Bitch Friday

In February the improv troupe I’m in did an Oscar Special. We got gowns and tuxes and red carpet and got so fancy, but I didn’t know how to do my hair for the event. My skills are limited to ponytails, shitty braids, straight hair, and giant huge pageant hair. I wanted something a little sweeter, a little more stylish. So, I turned to YouTube and watched a bunch of hair tutorials.

I would rather find a raccoon and attempt to not just domesticate it but prepare it for human life and activities on the level of an ordinary person and then have it be a video-game playing shut-in in my basement forever than watch tutorials on YouTube ever again. HOLY FUCK they are awful. There’s 20 minutes of talking about bullshit, then 30 minutes of unnecessary exposition, and then 3 minutes of tutorial. And my hair still looked weird until Alicia fixed it, sans tutorial because she’s an adult.

How To Do Anything TV solved this problem two-fold. There is no exposition, they are interesting, and well, you do learn something…

Congrats! You win this date, which is still better than IKEA.

But is there a YouTube video on the best use of YouTube? I’ve only used it to watch videos of Andrew Jenks in an effort to hone my stalking skills directed towards him and a few Maru the Cat videos. Beauty and what society deems “useful” things are of no interest to me. How can YouTube make me a much better person?!?!?!

It really depends on the subject. I used YouTube videos to help me learn about knitting, like casting off, casting on, and whatnot. For the most part, it was helpful, but I admit to having to scroll through a crap of ~meh~ videos until I found the one (or two) that really showed me. And some of the knitting terms are used interchangeably (like binding off and closing off), which made it all the more fun to search.

Wanna see a great hairdo. Google “Senator Traficant”. Dude looks like he’s got a raccoon on his head.

Goddammit, my boss blocked YouTube–how am I supposed to learn to do shit now?

Also, my only “hairstyle” is to put my hair in hotrollers, which gives me 80’s pornstar hair. After about three hours, it looks kind of okay, but at the three and a half hour mark, it’s back to its regularly scheduled frizzy mess. The Dude calls it Hermione Hair. It’s my special event hair, reserved for when I need to look like not a homeless person.
