VHS generation loss

“What happens if you make a copy of a copy of a copy (and so on) of a VHS tape? This experiment shows how the quality degrades with every generation.”
It’s kind of mesmerizing.

Kind of funny. Some well-placed music and laugh track.

Happy Friday everybody!

Yikes. Great work here.

» The BIBLIO-MAT

The BIBLIO-MAT

“The Biblio-Mat is a random book dispenser built by Craig Small for The Monkey’s Paw, an idiosyncratic antiquarian bookshop in Toronto.”
A crazy, fantastic idea.
Also: if you haven’t visited The Monkey’s Paw, you definitely should.

Youtube duet: Miles Davis improvising on LCD Soundsystem

“No editing or other tricks, just 2 youtube videos played at the same time.”
I love it. And I love both of these artists.

» Heart Beats for Music Hack Day MIT

Heart Beats for Music Hack Day MIT

“A project for Music Hack Day MIT 2012. I got a running watch last Christmas that included a heart rate monitor. I noticed that the range of human heart rates and the range of music tempos are pretty similar, so I thought it would be funny to control the tempo of a song with your heart.”
His choice of song? Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”.
Bizarre.

Enjoy!

Yikes. 🙂

THE FIRST 36 HOURS: An inside look at Hurricane Sandy

“This is the story of what a local news team has to go through to get their story on the air. In this case, the story is Hurricane Sandy, the biggest storm to hit the east coast in recorded history.”
Hard work. Worth a look.

» Fifty Impressions of Grey

Fifty Impressions of Grey

“Internet voiceman and jokesmith, Brock Baker, reads erotic novel ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ using 50 different voices. Your childhood has probably been ruined. You’re welcome.”
Not terribly much else you can add to that.

Friday, you couldn’t have had better timing.

Let’s watch a few videos!

» Cell Phone Crashing

Cell Phone Crashing

“What do strangers do when you “crash” their cell phone conversations? The answer might just surprise you! Shot in San Francisco, CA over Thanksgiving weekend.”
Hilarious. And odd.
There is also a part two.

“The project is a conversion of oil silo into light art piece and a public space designed by Madrid based Lighting Design Collective (LDC). It sits by the sea facing central Helsinki, Finland. Prevailing winds well known to residents are strongly present. The natural light, wind and the movement of light on the water formed the principles for the lighting concept.”
This is beautiful.

Welcome back to Friday, right where you left it.

Some videos? I thought you’d never ask!

» James Bond 007: Movie Deathmatch

James Bond 007: Movie Deathmatch

“All 6 Bond actors duke it out in a battle to the death. How does your favorite 007 fare?”
This is extremely well done.

» Hurricane Sandy on Bikes in NYC

[self explanatory]
Crazy!

» Halloween Voodoo Doll Prank

Halloween Voodoo Doll Prank

“Freaked some people out with a voodoo doll and asked them if we could try and see if it works. When one of us tapped on the voodoo doll’s shoulder the other would sneak behind the person and tap them on the shoulder with a fake hand. We really freaked these people out good!”
Lols.

» SPLIT OF A SECOND

SPLIT OF A SECOND

“Wingsuit World Champion Espen Fadnes and Project Managers Goovinn team up again for ‘SPLIT OF A SECOND’ after last year’s film ‘SENSE OF FLYING’, this time for an up close, personal look at Espen’s thoughts and motives behind flying and some never-before-seen footage of human flight.”
Desite the semi-literate title, pretty impressive.
If I were 15 years older I might be considering trying this. Just amazing.

Bonus Video:

» A real Myst book

A real Myst book

“This is my ‘working”‘ replica of a Myst linking book. It’s made out of a copy of the same book Cyan originally scanned as a texture reference, with a hand-assembled desktop computer inside it.”
Really…
That must have taken some effort. Kind of cool.

Happy Friday everybody, and happy November!
