Yes, it is Friday. No mistake about that.

And now it’s video time!

Longboard Dancing 2015

A pretty lovely discovery. 🙂 Sent along by Erin S. Well done.

Neural Talk and Walk

“Andrej Karpathy’s ‘NeuralTalk‘ code slightly modified to run from a webcam feed. I recorded this live while walking near the bridge at Damstraat and Oudezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam.”

That is to say: a neural network, connected to a webcam, attempts to identify what it is seeing in a live situation.

This is remarkable.

Jiminy

“In the near future, most people get a ‘cricket’ implanted in their brains : an electronic chip which allows them to switch to an ‘automatic mode’ whenever they wish to. NathanaĂ«l, a cricket repair man, is faced with a moral dilemma when the parents of an autistic boy ask him to hack into the chip of their son.”

A great short film. It asks some interesting questions too.

Buster Keaton – The Art of the Gag

Another awesome short video from Tony Zhou (aka: Every Frame a Painting.)

Bonus Video!

If People Who Sell Stuff Were Honest About Black Friday

Friday!

And we only have one more left in November.

Let’s get to it…

An Irishman In Vegas

Evan Griffin’s dad takes videos of his trip to Vegas with the camera pointing the wrong way for every shot.

This is most definitely making the rounds, but holy cow is it ever entertaining.

Cars On The Lanes

“For a long time, I thought about how to continue and expand the original idea. The musical translation of random patterns of nature or mankind. Since everything moves (from galaxies to atoms) and every moving pattern can be read as numbers or notes, then everything contains music.”

Created by Jarbas Agnelli. Clever…

Lawn Chair 2

“This film is the making of a lawn chair from milling the lumber to finishing the chair. The story is told with no dialogue through stop motion animation.”

This probably took (at least) weeks. Great work.

What It’s Really Like To Have Cancer

More inspiring than sad. Insightful.

Bonus Video!

Movie Coach Super Speech

“No crying in baseball” indeed! Compiled by the superfans at Burger Fiction. Nicely done.

And that about wraps it up for this week.

See you next Friday everybody!

Welcome to Friday the 13th.

Don’t worry: it’s lucky!

Here are some videos.

Movie Posters Part 2

Yes, there is also a part 1. Conceptualized by artist WhoIsPablo, these are a stunning update to the typical flat movie poster. His other work is also quite breathtaking.

Jaguar Lightweight E-Type

A five minute video depicting the hand-crafting work that goes into reviving a now 50-year old car model.

Smooth Criminal M.Jackson Ă  l’orgue de barbarie

“Orgue de barbarie” is basically an “organ grinder” barrel organ, dating from the turn of the last century. This must have taken some considerable effort to achieve.

Toddler sings Star Wars Imperial March

[self explanatory]

Two and a half years old! Fantastic.

Bonus Video!

Watch All the Apple TV Aerial Video Screensavers

[Self explanatory]

These are all the (current) HD videos used by the new Apple TV 2 for the “Aerial” screen saver. They’re beautiful.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Hooray for Friday!

Let’s begin…

The Breakfast Machine

Finally! We’re living in the actual future!

Sir David Attenborough narrates Adele’s Hello

[self explanatory]

Awesome. Making the rounds, but absolutely worth it.

The People’s Film – “Under Sixty Seconds”

“From Norwegian TV-show “Karl Johan” featuring Erik Solbakken and Hasse Hope.” These two convince two rappers in LA to come up with a movie concept, and shoot sequences on the fly.

I think I want to see more of this show.

Star Wars Trilogy Redub [PG]

These guys don’t compare to Bad Lip Reading, but this is pretty funny.

Bonus Video!

Territorial History of the USA: Every Month for 400 Years

“Animated map of the contiguous 48 States showing every country boundary change from 1629 onwards, and State border changes from 1784. ”

This must have taken quite a while to compile. I find it interesting.

Have a happy Friday everybody. See you next week.
