Here we are, at the end of January…

And there are all these videos to watch!!

The Chickening

This is one of the strangest things I’ve seen in a while. It made a splash at Sundance and it’s been sent to me numerous times this week. The song is pretty catchy too.


Throttle for v8 paper engine

That is not a typo. YouTuber Aliaksei Zholner has been hand-crafting a motor engine out of paper and posted several videos of his progress. It’s powered by the air in a balloon. This is amazing. (Odd, yes, but amazing.)

The Chemical Brothers – Wide Open ft. Beck

A really intricately coreographed video for one of the tracks off the new Chemical Brothers album. The comments confirm it creeps a few people out. This is a bizarre, fascinating video.

World’s Fastest Rubik’s Cube Solving Robot

The upshot: 1 second. I give up. (My fastest time: 1 minute 12 seconds, decades ago.)

Bonus Video!

Pixar-Style Ratatouille

“An elegant vegetarian dish inspired by one of our favorite movies.”

And yes, they included the recipe. I like!

Happy, Happy Friday everybody!
