Video: Friendly Matters

A few friends and I are making a movie every month.  We’re sort of competing against two other teams — one from Baltimore and the other from New Jersey.  There’ll be a new set of requirements each month.  Since this is the first month, it was pretty soft — just do an intro.

So Peter, Matt, and I did Friendly Matters.  It’s a sitcom based on reality.

Check out the other monthly videos at Rentcheck’s channel.

Kamikaze Classroom Showdown

In January 2005, my last semester at Georgia Tech, I decided to drop a class because the professor was an inflexible old professor emeritus.  There were two exams the whole semester and he scheduled the second for the Monday after Spring Break.  I pushed for it to be rescheduled during the first class, but he said no.  So I decided to drop the class.  But since I still felt he was wrong, I returned to the next class to see if I could convince him to move it for the good of the rest of the students.  A hero.

I didn’t know how he would react, but I was prepared to go out with a bang.  My friend Stan knew what I was going to do so he recorded it with his camera.  Professor Cooper exploded.  I thought there would be more of a build-up of anger before an explosion, so it caught me off-guard.  Here’s the video.
