And here we go…
» Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers: I Can’t Go For That
Recorded in a moving vehicle.
» The Stack Boys – Snapbacks

Videographer Zac Eubank has started a weekly project entitled “55”.
“55 is a weekly collection of 5 second clips taken 5 days out of the week. It is a project meant to deepen my appreciation of the world around me and broaden my visual palate.”
» Le vent (ballet super slow motion)
Ballet, captured at 1,000 fps.
I dunno about you but I’m ready for the weekend.
Have a great rest of your Friday.
Friday again. Spring again! (Where I am.)
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]
Well done! (And somewhat unexpectedly good.)
Suggested by many subscribers, including Sihan S.
» 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)
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.
» 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.”
Have a great rest of your Friday everybody.
Friday at last. (amiright?)
Here we go everybody…
» 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.”
Sent along by Matt G. (and several other subscribers.)
» 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!

» Jon Stewart interview Quentin Tarantino in 1994
On what was then “The Jon Stewart Show”
» Diplo: Express Yourself (ft. Nicky Da B)
» The Boneyard Project: Return Flight
Turning abandoned, delapidated planes into art.
Kind of odd but I like it.
Have a fantastic weekend. I hope it is warm where you are (like it is where I am.)
And time for some Friday viewing…
» 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
I’m always fascinated by this kind of process. Really beautiful.
» 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
Directed by Pierre Debusschere
» 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
I lol’d. A lot.
» 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.
» 8 bit Invader (maping)
(That should actually read “mapping”.)
Another cool building-sized projection / takeover. Well done.
» 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.
