Host (David Beeler) welcomes continuing guest Sir Reginald (Tom Konkle) and they talk about his latest book or invention. Dave and Tom are a British comedy team in the classic tradition of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Written by Dave and Tom. Pith-e Productions seeks financing for the continuation of the “Invention with Brian Forbes” comedy series on the Internet. Invention is a short, smart, funny, two person show in the classic mold of the comedy team, where each episode launches from a unique invention, book or discovery from a loony British professor, Sir Reginald Bo-hey No (Tom Konkle) who is interviewed by increasingly frustrated chat show host Brian Forbes (David Beeler) and spirals on humorous flights of fancy showcasing the comic chemistry of the two performers. Dave and Tom have been writing and doing these characters together onstage in critical hit shows for years, including Good Night, Double Act, and Dave and Tom’s: A Tribute to Dave and Tom and on the Internet in eight popular episodes of “Invention with Brian Forbes.” A Survey Of The Show So Far: See Invention here on metacafe****/daveandtom See the other home of Invention at Koldcast.tv and Tivocast *******www.koldcast.tv/video/the_astounding_book_author_interview The first episodes of the Pith-e produced series of Invention has gotten hundreds of thousands of views, its own fan following worldwide including a fan Myspace adn Veoh page dedicated to the show. myspace****/invention_comedy_series *******www.veoh****/channels/s527115 THE CHARACTERS: Host Brian Forbes (David Beeler) must each week welcome back eccentric inventor and author, Sir Reginald Bo-Hey No (Tom Konkle) who is always his guest and they riff in a short, funny sketch in the chat show format. It is a funny “Art Bell,” show like AM Coast to Coast a late night science/conspiracy show. The series has even been singled out by a serious UK television show as the comic relief on the show’s own webpage. Season 1: After a several episodes of very strange and funny interviews with Sir Reginald about his worthless inventions, Brian becomes increasingly hostile after being accommodating as he realizes he is physically trapped in this talk show with Reginald, literally walking from one side of the frame only to reappear on the other side of the frame again. They must eventually use their own ingenuity to escape, while continuing to do a chat show. What will happen when they get out into the “real” world again? Will they miss each other? Or has Brian simply been driven mad by the eccentric scientist and it’s all in his head…. Invention with Brian Forbes’ Scores KoldCast Deal, Dry Brit Wit Heads to TiVo by Marc Hustvedt on December 10th, 2008 ShareThis Invention with Brian Forbes, the new web series from comedy team David Beeler and Tom Konkle (Dave & Tom), has been picked up for a distribution deal with KoldCast TV, adding to the growing number of original series released through the Irvine-based broadband TV network. Just like After Judgment and a large crop of the Strike.TV web series, Invention will heading to millions of TiVo DVRs later this month as part of the recently announced deal between KoldCast TV and TiVo’s TivoCast service. Konkle and Beeler make up the two-man creative team at Pith-E Productions, which is also shopping Is It Safe?, another high brow original series that has been picking up attention as a clever spoof of the CSI-type procedurals. In all, the comedy duo have racked up over 12 Million views so far on their videos according to metrics company TubeMogul. Invention with Brian Forbes is minimalist British television (on the web of course), complete with a single-color backdrops and fixed public access camera setups. Beeler stars as host Brian Forbes, interviewing his recurring (and only) guest, inventor Sir Reginald Bo-Hey Know (Konkle), on his latest inventions—everything from a new calendar system to a book on cartography and even a new set of “gas pants” (above). Why would someone want to add flatulence to their own pants? Sir Reginald: Integrity, sir, integrity. As co-creator Konkle calls it, “it’s stupid comedy for smart people.” Konkle, who nails a spot-on British accent, is in fact not British at all, joked that, “I’ve actually booked more work as a Brit than as an American.” Invention itself, he added, it really a “two-hander,” a throwback to the old comedy duos that Beeler and Konkle have based their partnership on ever since they first teamed up at the Beyond the Fringe Festival back in 1999. He cites Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, who incidentally was how they first met, along with Bob & Ray as the model for their brand of intelligent, “egghead” humor—”comedy for people without ADD.” The series will use Koldcast’s website (on the Comedy Series Channel) as its main site, with the first five episodes available now with the release of new four to seven minute episode every two weeks.

- Polly Warfield These two are worthy successors to the comedy mantles of the greats, Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Wittily penned and performed by David Beeler and Tom Konkle, crisply directed by Michael Neill, this night-blooming nosegay of skits and sketches pays proper homage to the kookily cerebral art of (late) Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Beeler, who could well be cast as an eager young prelate just out of the seminary, is here cast as Moore. Konkle, with the mien of a solid citizen—businessman or loony--could be Cook. They are well paired and well contrasted, and what we have here, as we had there, is la creme de la creme of comedy. LA WEEKLY – Paul Birchall …writer-performers David Beeler and Tom Konkle capture the geniality and goofiness of the late, great masters of the "twitty old bean" style of English comedy. For, in this collection of gleeful and quick-witted skits, Beeler and Konkle pay homage to the buddy comedy of their predecessors…. Comedy Videos Online – Julianne Flystra But willing suspension of disbelief isn’t too hard to do here, because these fictitious Brits run through sketch after sketch without losing any steam where anything is possible and everything is gut-bustingly funny… Beeler and Konkle’s chemistry make “Invention” a treat to watch. They build off each other’s wild gestures, energy and antics as if they’ve known each other all their lives, even though they met in 1999. Dave and Tom The Sketches - Viral Video Show on Veoh**** The wide range of sketches require Beeler and Konkle to play characters who are polar opposites of each man’s previous part, yet the duo pull it off with ease. Summary: The internet series “Invention with Brian Forbes” is short, fast, funny and cheap to produce series with recurring characters and a great potential for endless, funny flights of fancy that work on all the new media platforms. Written, performed and produced by Tom Konkle and David Beeler this is a “turn key” production that’s ready to go.

Wudang Bajiquan internal kungfu Baji Quan or the eight extremes Chuan is also known as the open-door eight extremes Chuan, which is one of the traditional Chinese Chuan schools. Baji Quan is known for its force-fullness, simplicity and combative techniques. According to Wushu proverbs: "For ministers, Tai Chi Quan is used to run the country and for generals, Baji Quan is used for defending the country." From this it can be seen that Baji Quan holds a significant position among various Chinese Chuan school. The Meng Village of Cangzhou in Hebei Province is the birthplace of the Eight Extremes and while it is mainly practised in north China, it is also found in some places in the south. The Wu-style eight extremes Chuan is said to have a history of more than 260 years. It was passed on from a traveling senior monk to Wu Zhong of the Meng Village. The book of Secrets of the Eight Extremes Chuan, therefore, proclaims that the Monk was the creator of the eight extremes Chuan and Wu Zhong was the first successor. Because of his excellence at spear play, Wu Zhong was known as Spear God Wu, the number one spear fighter from Nanjing to Beijing. The eight extremes Chuan is simple and plain. It consists of short and yet menacing moves which are forceful, powerful and abrupt and demands hard play in both attack and defence. Elbows are often used in straightforward ways. The explosive powers generated are stimulated through breathing which is articulated by two sounds of "Heng" and "Ha." Powerful blows are delivered from elbows and shoulders in close combat against the opponent.

Here's a popular Pak Mei set by Han Zhong Luo. During the reign of the Qing emperor Kangxi (1662–1722), the warriors of the Xilufan revolt were so feared that the 2 ministers Kangxi ordered to end their attacks fled China rather than face either the mercilessness of the Xilu warriors, which often involved beheading, or the displeasure of the emperor, which often involved beheading. It was the 128 monks of the southern Shaolin temple who defeated the army of Xilu over 3 months in 1673 without suffering a single casualty. However, by doing so the monks had made enemies of those in the Qing army and Qing court who were embarrassed by how easily the Shaolin monks had succeeded where they had failed. Soon rumors began to spread about the threat posed by a power so great that it defeated the entire Xilu army with a force of only 128 monks. This campaign of innuendo was wasted on Kangxi, who remained grateful to the monks, but the rumors had their intended effect on his successor, the emperor Yongzheng (1722–1735), who ordered the temple's destruction. In 1723, on the 6th day of the first new moon of the lunar calendar, Qing forces launched a sneak attack on the southern Shaolin temple, which began by bombarding the largely wooden monastery with a relentless deluge of burning arrows. Between the surprise attack, the fire, and the overwhelming number of Qing soldiers, 110 out of the 128 monks were killed that day. The Great Shaolin Purge took 70 days as Qing forces hunted down the 18 survivors. The surviving warrior monks of Shaolin inflicted massive casualties on their Qing pursuers but, in the end, their numbers were too great. Soon only five remained: The Chan (Zen) master Jee Sin (Vietnamese: Chi Thien Su) The nun Ng Mui (Vietnamese: Nou Mei) The Taoist Bak Mei (Vietnamese: Pei Mei) The Taoist Fung Do-Duk (Vietnamese: Phung Dao Duc) The "unshaved" (lay) Shaolin disciple Miu Hin (Vietnamese: Mieu Hien) After 2 years of running and hiding from the Qing army these fugitives of the cloth regrouped at Mount Emei in Sichuan Province. As one of the sacred mountains of China, Mount Emei was home to about 70 monasteries and temples where the five clerics could blend in easily. It was decided that Bak Mei would infiltrate the Qing court as a spy while the others travelled throughout China to establish an alliance of anti-Qing rebels. However, the more Bak Mei learned, the more he realized that his allies' efforts would never be enough to overthrow the Qing, and so he left the rebellion, who took this as a betrayal, forcing Bak Mei on the run from those he was once on the run with. Almost all of the rebels who over the years sought to punish Bak Mei for his withdrawal from the struggle ended up dead at Bak Mei's hands, including Jee Sin and Miu Hin's son Fong Sai-Yuk, whom Bak Mei had known since Fong was a small boy. In other accounts, Fong Sai-Yuk is not Miu Hin's son but his grandson.
