The world’s greatest pick-up artist Mystery has recently come into even more public attention through his reality show The Pick-up Artist on VH1. Here’s a great clip where he’s explaining social dynamics to women and the women themselves start to respond to the old adage attraction isn’t a choice…
Eben Pagan also known as David DeAngelo is the creator of the Altitude programme for business owners and entrepreneurs. In this video he discusses the Mastermind concept originated by Napoleon Hill. The Double Your Dating business is a blueprint for online success. I have bought many of the products he produced under the pen-name David DeAngelo. So few people even begin to understand the value of a mastermind group but this video spells it out in plain and simple language.

You can read my own review of his 2-day Breakthrough Experience seminar I attended in December 2006.
Anyway here’s an awesome 30 minute interview with Alan Steinfeld, host of New Realities…
Ever heard of Mitch Hedberg? My friend Chris van Wyk recently brought him to my attention. What an awesome comedic talent. He’s jokes are so arb you cannot help yourself laughing your ass off. In fact he comes across as someone who’s permanently high because his delivery is so laid back. It’s refreshing to have clean humour where no vulgarity is used while still being hilarious. From watching so much comedy it just seems that most stand-up comedians or movies rely on toiler humour or sex talk to get a laugh. Mitch Hedberg was something else. Sadly he passed away in 2005 just before his first HBO special.
See for yourself in this clip. And I encourage you checkout more of him on Youtube.
Earlier this month I received an email from Chris Anderson, the curator of the TED following up on the conference in Tanzania. Several videos from the TEDGlobal conference I attended in Arusha a few months ago premièred online. My favourite is George Ayittey who roused the audience, alternating from lacerating criticism of Africa’s “hippo generation” to an inspiring appeal for the “cheetah generation” i.e. the youth who are taking things into their own hands to effect change. You can read my own review of his talk here.
So if you like what you’ve just seen buy George Ayittey’s book Africa Unchained. And if you’re a fellow blogger join the African Bloggers group and become part of the community to take Africa back from the Hippo generation.
In our hyper linked world, we can know anything, any time. And this mass enlightenment, says Buddhist scholar Bob Thurman, is our first step toward becoming Buddha. When we can know everything, we can see how everything is interconnected — and we can begin to feel compassion for every living being.
This is one of many excellent talks on the TED website. As you may know I attended the TEDGlobal conference in Tanzania recently. So I have a close affinity to all things TED. This is one of my favourites of the more recent talks posted. And I highly recommend the Bob Thurman podcast as well.

Robert Thurman’s book Infinite Life.
The funny thing about this book is that I bought it after listing to his public talk on the topic but I have not read it because its with a friend who needs it more than I do right now. Anyway one of my favourite websites for video content is Conscious Media Network with a ton of full length (30mins to 1 hour) video interviews with experts in various disciplines from the most esoteric, to hardcore science like quantum physics and string theory. And this is the website where I first encountered the work of Dr John Demartini. I guarantee you will learn something about relating to your men or women in romantic relationships from this interview:
You can purchase Dr Demartini’s relationship book, The Heart of Love from Kalahari.net if you live in South Africa or from Amazon.com if you live elsewhere in the world.
Who is Mr Deity? Your friendly neighborhood omnipotent, omnipresent God or as Dr John Demartini says, Grand Organised Designer. This hilarious send-up was created by Brian Keith Dalton.
This is one of those shows popping up on Youtube along with the likes of Chad Vader, that has the potential for mainstream success. In fact Brian’s goal is to turn this into a weekly sitcom and is currently negotiating with some tv networks. I really find it amazing how much wit and intelligence these 5 minute webisodes contain. Without explaining more about Mr Deity I include a clip of the very first one to get you started…
Match.com the biggest online dating network of websites in the world has teamed up with Dr Phil.
