Guinness Book of World Records. What kid hasn’t flipped through the pages documenting the pillars of human achievements and thought, Hey, I could beat some of these records.

Starting August 1, 5 AM PDT / 8 AM EDT, PK Gillock of charity site Isara.org will actually go through with our collective childhood aspirations, in an attempt to unseat the current Karaoke session world record of 39+ hours. Best of all,you can watch 40+ hour test of body, mind and ear drums right here on Ustream.

PK Gillock will be raising funds for Isara.org, a three year old charity responsible for over 60 humanitarian projects in 4 countries, including dozens of scholarships and a free learning center in northeastern Thailand.

PK and Isara.org will be taking YOUR requests in coordination with the fundraising effort. Be a part of the annals of Karaoke’s hallowed history — register for Isara.org or donate $5 for your very own song request.

Get yourself hyped (and a pair of ear plugs):

Shave your head for charity – Viral game captured on Ustream

Gary Vaynerchuk didn’t become huge on accident, everything was calculated and intelligently planned out. He is the example of a pro social marketer, a person who creates buzz without even spending a dollar on ads. Gary is a genius.

The day before yesterday, Gary woke up and shaved his head live on Ustream. The viewers went nuts. Now, your average Ustreamer would stop there and call it a day, maybe quietly complain that he has a shaved head – Not Gary though, he turned it into a game.

In this video you see Gary challenging Kevin Rose to shave his head. If he does it Gary will donate $300 to a charity of Kevin’s choice. Kevin then has the power to call out the next soon-to-be-bald contestant.Kevin Rose took the challenge…live on Ustream as well.
In front of 1000 people, the god of Digg shaved his head. The recorded video was so ridiculous that it later made the front page of Digg with over 2500 diggs. Ridiculous!


Who’s next?
