The Blog of Author Tim Ferriss “Everyone’s looking for rules to follow, and the sooner you realize there aren’t any, the better art can be.”– Jerrod Carmichael Jerrod Carmichael is pushing the boundaries of comedy with his groundbreaking work in stand-up, television, and film. Now just 29 years old, what this driven North Carolina native has accomplished is mind-boggling, and 2017 is going to be his biggest year yet. Jerrod stars in the hit NBC series The Carmichael Show, which he also writes and executive produces. The third season of the show premieres in 2017. Love at the Store is the funniest standup special I’ve seen in many years, and it’s the reason I reached out to Jerrod. In the summer of 2016, Jerrod reprised his role as ‘Garf’ in the Universal comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising opposite Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. Jerrod recently announced his upcoming authorial debut with an as-yet-untitled memoir. Please enjoy my wide-ranging conversation with Jerrod Carmichael! Scroll below for links and show notes…

A History of the World - Explorer Read blogs and exercise the brain April 23, 2012 by mrkaiser208 I have been writing this blog for just over two years now. In that time, on several occasions, I have had fellow teachers ask if I could send them the links to new sites or apps that I have ran across. I have also been asked if I could send the links to instructional pages or videos that I have either created or discovered. My answer is, “Go to my blog. It’s all there.” Though blogs have been around for years, the general populations still doesn’t see them as a valuable professional tool. One of the most valuable pieces of professional development instruction for teachers is that of setting up an RSS reader for the sake of professional reading. Does every0ne have to read a blog to keep up on what is current? If you are reading this, then I am guessing that you already read blogs, so you already know what I am talking about. This short video might be a good place to start. Like this: Like Loading...
