Mp3 Experiment Eleven by Improv Everywhere

Earlier in September, Improv Everywhere hosted Mp3 Experiment Eleven at Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn. As in past editions of the experiment, participants followed whimsical instructions that were contained in an Mp3 file. At this year’s event, participants were asked to wear a single color — this came in handy for the experiment’s “festival of colors.” Mp3 Experiment Eleven took place at the Third Annual Beat Festival.

Bette Davis Talks About Speaking Her Mind and of Changing Gender Roles in Rare 1963 Interview Animated for PBS

I think it’s just too much trouble to be dishonest and keep up with yourself, you know.

The most recent episode of Blank on Blank features the legendary Bette Davis talking about her habit of speaking her mind and how she perceived the significant way that gender roles were changing in a rare 1963 interview at her home with the incredible Shirley Eder.

I think men have got to change an awful lot. I think somehow they still prefer the little woman. They’re just staying way, way behind and so as a rule I think millions of women are very happy to be by themselves, they’re so bored with the whole business of trying to be the little woman, when no such thing really exists anymore. It just simply doesn’t. This world’s gone way beyond it. The real female should be partly male and the real male should be partly female anyway. So if you ever run into that in either sex you’ve run into something very, very fine, I think.
