Time for some visual stimulation.
Solar Forecast: June 1972 – June 2015
“Daily ‘solar synoptic maps’ created by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). These hand-drawn maps were used for solar forecasting and continue to be published today.”
A pretty great animation.
Spider-Man Music 1967 – 69 (ALL Background Music)
“Every piece of music from the original 1967 series, talking parts and sound effects removed as much as possible, pieced back together into complete form.”
The composer of this music was one
Ray Ellis. This is a piece of my childhood. Some great arrangements in here.
Possibly not for the squeamish (when it comes to motion-sickness.) For VR, this could be a big game-changer.
This American Life Videos 4 U: Tattoos
“Maggie’s body is covered in tattoos, and her parents have no idea. So we made a video for Maggie to show her parents the tattoos she’s been hiding.”
A great little short.
“OG Flat-Top dope talent on an online audition.”
And he’s singing over Daft Punk’s “Voyager” track. The man has some talent!
Happy Friday! See you next week.
Friiiiday! At last.
Yay. And now for some videos!
Le Petit Chef
“Dinner table mapping” (Via projection.)
Amazing Contact Juggling: Object Manipulation
Movie Phone Super Call
A clever edit of phone-call sequences from numerous movies.
I recorded my professor every day
Well at least he’s consistent.
Idris Elba Plays James Bond: “Vulture Remix” Episode 10
A great video mashup answering the question “Would Idris Elba make a good James Bond” with a resounding “Hell yeah.”
Hat tip to Matt G.
Happy Friday everybody.
See you next time.
Welcome back, Friday. How ya been?
Good! That’s great.
Me? Oh not bad… not bad…
Yup yup yup…
Oh right! Videos! Right!
Surprise Ballroom Dancing in a Busy NYC Crosswalk
Another gem from the folks at Improv Everywhere.
Justin & Jill’s Drunk History
“Yesterday we got married. We didn’t want to waste time at the wedding reception having to answer the question “how did you two meet?”, so with the help of a few friends and a lot of booze we made this video to show at the rehearsal dinner. Enjoy!” D’aw?
Rubix cube solved in free fall!!
Possibly not for the faint of heart. This is not a use of a GoPro camera that I ever thought I’d see.
Raw Run: Zak Maytum
“We followed the boss down one of the fastest runs in Colorado. With speeds approaching 70mph, and rough-ass pavement.”
70 miles per hour! (Conversely, this
is a use of a GoPro camera I always expect to see.)
Helium Opera Singing
Helium always makes me laugh.
Happy Friday! Have a lovely weekend.
Whuhoo Friday! And we bid farewell to August 2015. :'(
Note: I am pretty sure all of you have already seen
this video, but it makes me laugh so I’m still including it here in the briefest of ways. You’re welcome.
Real Life First Person Shooter (Chatroulette version)
“We created a live action first-person zombie shooter in our garden – then invited unsuspecting people on chatroulette, omegle and skype to take control…”
This is insanely, insanely good. So fun.
I’m You, Dickhead
A pretty great little short film about time travel gone awry (as it nearly always will.)
Lenny is always up for trolling a PC Party telemarketer
“‘Lenny’ is a collection of recorded messages, designed to fool telemarketers into thinking they are talking to a real person.”
I like this idea. Someone should use it to respond to those stupid travel scam robocallers.
We Call This Home – 3 Years Around The World Travel
A pretty great idea. In my opinion this video is too short. But great.
This Much Will Kill You
“A lot of things can kill you – but here are some surprising ones!”
A listing of lethal doses of a variety of substances (including water.)
See you in seven days, and have a great (long?) weekend.
