--------------If you watch a lot of YouTube videos, you may know her for her viral Saturday Night Live audition tape or her ongoing video exchanges with SNL star Fred Armisen?and I?ll play a sample of both later.
You can watch her Oxfam video @ OxfamAmerica.org.
And, of course, we?ll also talk about movies. And maybe we can get her to sing a little bit, because among her many videos are those in which she sings and plays guitar, including a cover of Sinead O?Connor?s ?Nothing Compares 2 U,? which, of course, was written by Prince.

CHARLYNE YI audio excerpt: "At the Oxfam America Hunger Banquet, I was a poor person, so I had to sit on the floor. The rich people sat at the table and the middle class sat in chairs. It was such an interesting hypothetical situation--role-playing, and yet it was real. The person next to you wasn't sharing their food even though they had the opportunity. Some of us didn't get fed at all."
