Happy New Year, Friday Video folks!

Here are the first Friday Videos for 2013…

» Gag Reel – Star Trek

Gag Reel - Star Trek

This is a gag reel included in the new Star Trek The Next Generation Season 2 Blu-ray set.
I lol’d.

» This Must Be The Place

This Must Be The Place

“Prime Burger Restaurant, in Midtown Manhattan For many of the guys that work here, the restaurant is like a second home – some of them have been slinging burgers, making shakes, and waiting on customers at this location for decades. Opened in 1938, the place hasn’t been altered since the early ’60s, and it looks all the better for it.”
I think I need to visit this establishment.
A poignant, quiet little portrait of this resilient downtown Manhattan diner.

» Les Twins Dancing To Edit Ants

Les Twins Dancing To Edit Ants

This is not a new video but it was recommended over the holidays and it does not disappoint.
If you search for “Les Twins” on Youtube you will find numerous other videos but I like that this is a sort of impromptu, spontaneous event. Beautiful.

» A unique pair of pistols.

A unique pair of pistols.

“The only known pair of matching singing bird pistols attributed to Frères Rochat, Geneva, circa 1820”
“Dated from 1820, this pair of pistols is a unique object, which should exceed $ 5 million under the hammer…”
This is one of the craziest things I think I’ve seen in a while. Bizarre but fascinating.

Bonus Video:

» Media Burn Archive – Wired In raw #28: Bally/Midway #1

Media Burn Archive - Wired In raw #28: Bally/Midway #1

“Raw footage for ‘Wired In,’ a never completed series on the technological trends and innovations of the 1980s. In this video, we watch as Bally Midway factory employees go through the intricate process of assembling Ms. Pac Man Arcade games. Jarocki / Bally #1.”
A cool little segment, in my opinion.
P.S.: I now feel old(er).

Have a great weekend everybody. See you in a week!
