Help me make my next video!!

Ok so I have a video idea and I need you (reader of this) to help me with it.

The basic premise is a reverse version of Visiblemode's 'Advice that might not ruin your life'.
I ask a question of the viewers, and they comment with tips and advice in relation to that question/topic. Then I make a video with the funniest ones (I don't want actual helpful advice and tips, I just want stupid and funny ones), and at the end of that, ask another question/topic, to be commented on that video.

I don't know how much sense that makes, but that is my idea. The reason I am pre-emptively blogging about it (please don't steal my idea!) is because I need material for the first video to get the ball rolling!

So! I want advice and tips on the following two subjects:

1. Hair care tips and advice

2. Good ways to preserve food

Molly said this in response to the hair thing:
"YOU GOTTA STRAIGHTEN THE HAIR WHEN IT'S WET. YOU GET THIS GREAT STEAM EFFECT. REALLY DRY IT OUT. SO MUCH VOLUME AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO WASH IT AS OFTEN"

So... that's the idea.

Comment please!! Any that are hilarious I will use in the video and I will credit and link the people on the video page.

A good place to preserve your food is inside your printer. Depending on how big your printer is, you'll be able to fit some food in there. All you'll need is saran wrap, some paper clips, and duct tape.

pinky said...

Oh ya and ice cubes. Lots of ice cubes.

1. For good hair, don't go outside when it is windy.
2. To preserve food, use salt. Also, remember to pack lots of fruits and veg, fights off the scurvy.

HAIR CARE TIPS FOR MEN: If, when you wake up in the morning, your hair needs to be combed or appears to be in need of washing, shave it down to a level where you don't need to comb it and nobody will ever know if it needs to be washed.

PRESERVING FOOD: Spray it every other day with 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide and you can leave it in the corner of your room without risk of spoiling.

1. A good hair care tip. If you're out of conditioner, Mayonaise works just as well to tame down fly aways and mend split ends. It's imperitive that it is rinsed properly as that "Sandwich shop" smell is not particularly attractive.

2. Fruits and vegetables can be perserved by adding just a couple drops of lemon juice to the container or baggie. This works well on all produce except for lemons, in which the lemon juice seems to have no effect on.

2. I use liquid nitrogen for that.

And remember a pick is not just a comb its a weapon

Take all the food in your house and put it into a very large cage. Then place grass and flowers inside the cage to make the food feel like it's in an actual natural habitat and place it outside in the sun. This will make the food feel wild and free, keeping it healthier than a refrigerator ever would. The food will also mate with one another creating a bountiful feast for weeks to come.

A little hair care tip....
You people out there with extra long hair-try a jello wash! The gelatin really helps to seal up those hair cuticles, and even makes your head smell fruity! For an extra little boost of shine, try jello with fruit inside! Those extra chunks of fruitful goodness will make that hair luscious and tame.
Another hair care tip- what really gets your hair mor voluminous? A finger in the electrical socket! That's right! Shove your finger in your nearest electrical socket, give it about 5 seconds, and release!

1. Hair care tips and advice

Always make sure to use 5 times the recommended amount of gel/styling product. This allows you to not have to re-style for the next 5 days! Also, no need to wash, seeing as the good thick layer of product encapsulates the hair not allowing it to absorb the dirt.



2. Good ways to preserve food

In order to preserve a meal you have just made, and have a lot of leftovers, FIRST THING you must do, is leave it out over night. This will ensure a good crusty layer over the food you want to preserve. Then you must put the food you wish to preserve into a bag along with some bananas. (HAHA) This banana bag will allow the food you are preserving to absorb the banana flavor and extra good juiciness. This must sit in the bag for at no more or less then 7 hours. After the precise 7 hours you can remove the preserved food, and have it forever! Feel free to eat within the next 50 years.

A great way to preserve food is to put it in a glass jar filled with bacon grease and them place it in the sun on a hot day. The oil will cook onto the food and give it a pleasant texture. Some people would say "Oh, it'll grow bacteria and clog your arteries!" but pay no attention to them. It's totally good for you .

As for hair, women should let their hair grow out without cutting it. If you simply insist on cutting it, use your teeth to bite through the strand. It's natural and the saliva coats each strand so it won't be as damaged. To dye your hair strawberry blonde, comb hydrogen peroxide through your hair with a toothbrush. As you're doing this, boil a large pot of beets. Drain the beet juice and fill your sink with it. Let your hair soak in the solution for about an hour. Pat dry and admire your new shiny locks.
Men should use Crisco as hair pomade for that posh sleek look.

psycoticsinginchick said...

Mayonnaise makes a great conditioner, and lemon juice works well for natural highlights.
The sad thing, is that this is actually true. Although, I always thought it was funny.
Also, instead of a hairdryer which takes up a lot of time, so long as it's not raining you can just stick your head out of the window on the interstate. Just remember to bring a brush.

Always leave the house with wet hair: everyone knows it's the sexiest thing in the world.

NusaCat said...

For the best hair, let nature take its course. And think of all the money you'll save on combs and brushes!

When canning food, make sure you spit in each jar before sealing the lid. That way you can be sure that nobody else will eat it!

(RL note: When I helped clean out my grandmothers house for sale, we found several jars she'd canned back in 1948! No, we didn't open them.)

My favourite videos of you are reading stupid comments but what makes them funny is that someone actually thinking that way - this is not the same.

Hair tip for men: Use TresEMME shampoo. Ask Charlieissocoollike.

Hair tip for women: Never cut your hair. It preserved the purity of your mane and prevents split ends. Also, wash as rarely as possible. In other words, do everything you can to preserve your hair's purity.

To preserve food: Stuff your clothes with as much food as possible, and tow it around EVERYWHERE. Putting it close to your heart is particularly good, because your heart will comfort and make the food feel safe.

I here washing your hair with a bottle of beer gives it a shiny sheen.
That aside I think you should do a weekly skit show where you mock celebs / world news event base it around a news(bed)room like - Not the Nine O'Clock News. You have a talent for impersonation.

AutomaticTLC said...

I can't think of any now but do you know how many comments of "WTF THATS NOT WUT U DO" you're going to get? bahahahaha...your sense of humor is Godly.

Hair tips:

To strengthen the roots it is recommended that you always attach one full pound of lead weights to your hair before any form of vigorous exercise.

^^ godly? oh another one where us intellectual people can all share a laugh because we "get it", can't wait. guaranteed to get views tho i suppose..

B. Waylan said...

a good eco-friendly hair tip is any time you have dirty or greasy hands, use your hair as a napkin. Food grease can be used to create many different hair stylings, while at the same time alerting others of your "green" mentality. Just an extra tip, french fry or "chip" grease works the best on hair, and can also double as a leg moisturizer or shaving cream. Think of the napkins and bottles of gel and lotion that could be saved from landfills, preserving earthly and human beauty.

the best way to preserve your food is to never go to the toilet.

tejayce said...

all i can give right now .. is a real story about how to get a stylish haircut.
1 clipper with half empty battery, 1 bottle of vodka, 2 friends and a hairlength of at least 5 inches. take all to a hidden ruin, wait until friends are drunk, then suggest its extremly funny to cut your hair now, watch as they aim, miss and the clipper gets stuck in your hair because of the low battery. once your friends have given up trying, go home, inspect the result and use a full loaded clipper to reveal the artwork beneath what looks like a tragedy.

im gonna try to come up with smth funny .. but those topics dont seem to ignite my creativity too well.
i mean preserve food?? just eat it before going to bed, the fat may last until the rest of your life. haha .. not funny.

you talked about some kind of huge thing to be part of and art competitions .. how about some kind of art collaboration. i mean theres plenty options .. from a "traveling canvas" to a more viewer catching "1 hot girl from every city in the world - photograph collection" ... maybe you can come up with smth both sophisticated and viral ;)

BadAlbert said...

One of the best ways to preserve food is to put it in an angry man who is armed with a shotgun. Or dig a hole, fill the hole with lions and put the food in that. Or put the angry man with the shotgun and food inside him in the hole with the lions. He'll be in a cage so the lions don't eat him. Or give it to Michael Jackson to look after because 1. he doesn't eat, and 2. everyone hates him.

JC said...

Hair looks better when it's a little greasy, only shampoo it once a week, and if it smells sprink a little cologne on it, no one will notice.

JC said...

a good way to preserve food is to liquify a large amount of everything! then you put it in a bottle and carry it around everywhere without being scared of it go bad. Plus, you can have anything you want, in the comfort of a bottle.

If you've just eaten at McDonald's FART on your food, this is considered a preservative by the Food and Drug administration in the USA.

Hair tip:

If you dye your hair, you should also dye your lashes, eyebrows, nose hair, ear hair, arm and leg hair as well as any exposed naughty bits. Failure to do this may cause a harmonic refraction imbalance which is in violation of the Kyoto Treaty. In the U.K., this may result in issuance of an ASBO.

MajorWallaby said...

Food tip:

There is no need to preserve food. Each person should be given 1 chicken and 1 goat. When the chicken lays an egg, eat it right then. Feed the eggshells to the goat. The goat can also supply milk and cheese on demand. If you get one those fainting goats, you will also have whipped cream.

Goose said...

I believe that if your worried about hair, cut it all off, then youll have nothing to worry about.

Preserving food is easy, you can add a months shelf life to any type of food by rubbing raw meat all over it, or better yet two different types of raw meat. The cheaper and further passed its sell by date the meat, the greater the effect.

Preserving food is simple, all you need is a little miracle ingredient known in the industry as 'the preservative'. Ready meals, so called because they come 'ready' preserved are bursting with twice the daily amount of salt, E numbers and monosodium glutamate you need to stay healthy.

lejaders said...

-Plastic wrap smothers cheese, you should store cheese in either aluminum foil or wax paper.

-If you have greasy hair and don't feel like washing your hair, just rub some baby powder in it, the paper powder absorbs the grease and make your hair look clean. I find if you blow dry your hair after you rub in the baby powder it works out quite well.

JJC1138 said...

It's well known that tinned food keeps forever. What's not so well known is that after you've eaten the contents you can reuse the tin. Just stick whatever you like in there and seal the top back on with some duct tape, and it will be perfectly preserved for you to enjoy in decades to come.

1. Hair care tip

For shiny, healthy pubes, I recommend Herbal Essences. An added bonus is that you'll be more inclined to recreate the famous Herbal Essence Moans you hear in their commercials while you "clean" your happy zone.

2. Food preservation tip

My friend Tannibal Mecter (name altered to keep his identity private) told me once that human brain doesn't keep very well. So always put leftovers in the fridge and try not to reheat more than 2 times.

Hair Care:
Male: Shave it all off ever other month.
Female: Shave it all off and get a wig.

Food Preservation:
Inhale it, the vacuum will preserve it.

Or, just don't open the processed food packaging it last longer that way.

Hair tips: wear a hoodie
Food: leave it on the supermarket shelves

Memories said...

Hair Tip: Apparently using tea leaf shampoo gets rid of headlice. Don't know how - whether they get poisoned whether or commit mass suicide, beats me. Of course the other effective way is to shave all your hair off (also gets rid of split ends).

Food Tip: Serious answer - the sweeter way is to store it in sugar because nothing can grow in sugar. Unusual answer: if you live somewhere cold (e.g. England), leave it outside on the window ledge. It's probably just as good as a fridge.

hair care- a moist hair net and wig

food storage- school desk or locker

For Hair:

Food has feelings too! Every day, at sunset, when the last beautiful rays of the sun shine onto the fridge, pull out all of the food and sing the "Circle of Life" to it. The food will feel loved, and therefor, want to remain pretty for you. Naturally.

i dumped a bunch of black hair dye on my blonde hair dye to be trent reznor for halloween... it was awful. my dry roots absorbed the black dye like nobody's business. then i never was trent reznor after all. i guess my hair tip would be, 'don't be impulsive.'

also, don't call the loreal tip line when you are in the middle of a hair crisis (e.g. dye on your head) because they keep you on hold for awhile thus worsening the situation...

hope that helps.

nancy

p.s. i sent a fabulous script to your myspace address!

just nancy said...

i meant to say blonde dyed hair

or, hair dyed blonde?

or, peroxide blonde hair bleached within an inch of its life?

something like that.

it wasn't like i dumped blonde hair dye on my head and then within that same hour dumped black hair dye on my head.

i'm not that dumb.

just nancy said...

What I meant was, I'm not THAT dumb.

Like, I'm dumb sometimes, but not THAT dumb.

Man, I can't even get that whole self-deprecating thing right.

That's pretty bad.

Hair Care Tips:
This one is for the ladies!- The key is to remain hairless. Try to keep it as closely shaved to the scalp as is humanly possible. This keeps away the bugs and it keeps you from ever having to wash it. Ever. Going out in bad weather? Slathering your head stubble with butter keeps it moisturized when those girls with real haircuts are out there getting split ends!

You don't need to worry about preserving food - before eating simply remove any mould growth quickly and easily with Nair cream.
