Quite possibly the best X ways to Y yet. It was great.

If it is American, Track 1 would have to be Коробейники. (Thank you wiki for the Russian) For those of you too lazy to look it up Korobeiniki. If you don't know what that well... I can't be held responsible for what happens to you.


I think American NPR could fit into the astonishingly boring to listen to category and will put you to sleep most days.

In the Sam Raimi the chloroform is poured on the side of cloth facing the camera but it never gets turned around so Paul faces the weaker side. Also I use LRRCasts to fall asleep most nights.

I gotta say, I didn't like the amount of suggested creepy sexual things done while a person is asleep. You guys have done much better.

I'll grant you that for hypnosis, but obviously we only did that since we thought it'd be funny.
And, though it doesn't make a difference, we hadn't originally planned the "roofies" one to end that way, it just sort happened when we were shooting.

Still, that's only two.
(I feel the kiss from the wrestler was really kind of sweet. Sweet in an odd way, sure, but it certainly wasn't creepy. He was being tucked in.)

Dark humour really isn't for everyone. And still, there wasn't a lot in this one. But I'm gonna hazard a guess that the LRR crew wasn't advocating or approving date-rape. They can correct me if I'm wrong in that assessment.

Glad to finally see the sequel.

The wrestler part was indeed quite sweet. And it made me laugh pretty hard. I liked the sleeping pills - energy drink parallel a lot.

Funny video. My favourite parts were probably the book on tape and Eternal Sonata. If you're aiming for a counterpart for other X2Y videos, try these ones:

    Ways to Begin a Movie
    Ways to Keep Your Christmas Tree
    Ways to Survive in a Horror Movie
    Ways to Eat Coke
    Ways to Drink Fries
    Ways to Obey the Law
    Ways to Gain Weight
    Ways to Place a Body in an Obvious Location
    Ways to Trap Someone in a Room
    Ways to Induce a Hangover
    Ways to Use Shaolin in a Responsible and Upstanding Manner
    Ways to Earn a Second Date
    Ways to Get Hired
    Ways to Waste Money

And afterwords you could combine all of them into Ways not to X2Y.
Just call me Dylan. It's easier to pronounce.

Ah, comedy. The reverse is true for me. Each to own, I suppose.

I believe 'X Ways To Wake Up' is next? That's an opportunity for a ball-kick if I ever heard one.

They mentioned they were making "Ways to stay awake" as a trilogy.

So, next up is.... "Ways to wake up"?

I just did it, the world seems fine.

It is rather hard to get them to sink up though. first they both have false starts with the music (it starts quiet in the background and then starts at the beginning once the title pops up) and they last for different amounts of time. Then I got the music on both sinked up only to find that they loop at slightly different places so each time the music restarted it would be off again.

Their is some fun moments though, their is the point where at the same time Paul is getting put in a sleeper hold and having his eyes forcefully held open, Tim and Paul watching movies lines up with the club where Paul gets Roofied, and both of the Sam Rami's are at the same time which was cool.

It was OK, and the sleeper hold was hilarious, but it seemed to me like you essentially re-used 'Bore yourself to sleep' quite a bit, just dressed up with different methods of boring yourself.

I still think the wrestler kissing Paul to sleep was cute and funny at the same time, but did he have to be the victim in all the skits? :P
Of course I'm out of my mind. It's dark and scary in there!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
