Friday again. Spring again! (Where I am.)

…Videos again!

» RUIN

RUIN

A cgi short about a post-apocalyptic future.
If this were part of a longer movie, I would go see that movie. No question. Really brilliantly executed. (Bonus: great orchestral score.)

» Adele’s Rolling In The Deep [Chinese Zither Cover]

Adele's Rolling In The Deep [Chinese Zither Cover]

Well done! (And somewhat unexpectedly good.)
Suggested by many subscribers, including Sihan S.

» Wrecking Crew Orchestra

Wrecking Crew Orchestra

This is one of the most innovative dance videos I’ve seen in ages. Well done!

» The Simpsons: Itchy and Scratchy (All of them)

The Simpsons: Itchy and Scratchy (All of them)

Nearly 49 minutes of this seminal mini-cartoon within a cartoon.
I knew a guy who had them all recorded sequentially on VHS back in the day. In 1994 that tape lasted 18 minutes. Crazy.

Bonus Video:

» Improv Everywhere: Sleeper Car

Improv Everywhere: Sleeper Car

From the back story: “For our latest mission we converted a New York City subway car into a “sleeper car,” giving New Yorkers the chance to rest their heads during a late night commute. We set up three beds, each outfitted with a comforter, pillow, and sheets. Pajamas, sleep masks, and earplugs were also provided as part of this unauthorized free service.”
Crazy.

Have a great rest of your Friday everybody.

Friday at last. (amiright?)

Here we go everybody…

» NY Times: Bike Thief

NY Times: Bike Thief

This one’s making the rounds but it’s a good video, so here it is.
“The filmmaker Casey Neistat conducts an experiment in New York City, where he locks up his own bike and brazenly tries to steal it, to determine whether onlookers or the police would intervene.”
Crazy!

» Sarah Palin versus Julianne Moore

Sarah Palin versus Julianne Moore

A stunning side-by-side of actual Sarah Palin clips and Julianne Moore’s portrayal of the same clip in the HBO original movie “Game Change”.
btw: That movie had the greatest viewership of any HBO movie in the past 8 years. Crazy!

The Boneyard Project: Return Flight

Friiiiiiday!

And time for some Friday viewing…

» TED Talks: Bryan Stevenson: We need to talk about an injustice

TED Talks: Bryan Stevenson: We need to talk about an injustice

This is pretty much essential viewing, in my opinion. Well said. (P.S.: I heart TED Talks. I don’t normally link to them because I just assume everybody watches them already.)

» The Violin Maker

The Violin Maker

I’m always fascinated by this kind of process. Really beautiful.

» Britney Spears – face morph from baby to now. Through the years

Britney Spears - face morph from baby to now. Through the years

It’s more interesting than it sounds. Kind of crazy.

» The Day The World Went Away

The Day The World Went Away

Directed by Pierre Debusschere
Unexpectedly beautiful.

» Seeing in circles

Seeing in circles

A guy attaches a camera to an electric drill and records video that turns out to be unexpectedly beautiful.
How odd, but cool.

I hope your weekend is extremely satisfying.

Well well well… Friday!

Here we go!

» Cassetteboy vs. the News

Cassetteboy vs. the News

I lol’d. A lot.

» Graffiti Rock

Graffiti Rock

According to Wikipedia, “Graffiti Rock was a hip-hop based television program, originally screened June 29, 1984. Intended as an on-going series, the show only received one pilot episode…”
This appears to be that episode.
Wow.

» 8 bit Invader (maping)

8 bit Invader (maping)

(That should actually read “mapping”.)
Another cool building-sized projection / takeover. Well done.

» City of Samba

City of Samba

“Tilt shift of the Carnaval party in Rio de Janeiro.”
Tilt-shift is going to eventually be like Autotune in pop songs: representative of a very specific period in the early 2010’s.
But I still like this. 🙂

Enjoy your day everybody.
