Friday again! Yes please.

A moment of silence for the passing of July…

And where I’m from, it’s a long weekend! (Hopefully for you as well.)

Here we go!

The Chase

“This past spring I spent more time chasing storms on the plains than ever before. The most I had spent prior to this was seven total days and that was last year. What I came away with from that short time made me realize that if I could double that…the stuff I could capture would be amazing.”

Photographer Mike Olbinski captures some stunning footage of Summer storms.

Chris Urmson: How a driverless car sees the road.

Chris Urmson is the director of the self-driving car project. This is a TED Talk from this past June. This is really fascinating.

Lucious: Go Home

An acoustic, back-yard performance from this Brooklyn indie band. The band is on tour as we speak and from all accounts they are definitely worth checking out.

5 Mechanical Kinetic Artworks by Brett Dickins

These are utterly fascinating. There is a lot more on his website as well.

Bonus Video!

I was looking for some action

This was sent in by Tia T. and there is zero information about who the song is by, who the dancers are, how it was shot, etc.

But I think it’s awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Friday of a possibly long weekend everybody!

See you in a week.
