Friday heeeere! Check out your hot new Friday heeeeere!

Welcome! And happy Friday.

Video time. Places, everybody!

G.I. Joe PSA Compilation – [Remastered HD]

These are the Eric Fensler re-imaginings of the original 70s G.I. Joe shorts.

Even many years later these are still hilarious.

Glorious MIDI Unicorn

YouTuber Andrew Huang created a drawing of a unicorn using Midi software, and it turns out it interprets as a pretty okay little tune! 🙂

This obviously took more effort than just drawing it and playing it.

A weird idea but it’s making the rounds.

Tiny Trump / The Pocket Potus

“We saw all those stills of tiny trump and were like. Thats cool but why not do it in motion aka next level meme it… Wait we could do that. So we did.” [sic]

A one-trick pony video but it works. 🙂

Every NYT front page since 1852

… in 55 seconds. 🙂

It’s been mentioned a few places. It’s kind of mesmerizing. It might have been good to have a little year counter on it somewhere.

Bonus Video!

La La Land as directed by David Lynch – Trailer Mix

This has some pretty smart touches to it. I like!

I would most definitely watch this.

Also: Emma Stone in an actual Lynch movie: this should be a thing.

There we go. All done. No more.

See you next week everybody.

And we’re back! And it’s Friday, and there are videos to see!

Donald Trump’s Tweets As An Early 2000s Emo Song

“We noticed that Trump’s tweets are basically the lyrics to an early 2000s emo song, so we turned them into one.”

Super Deluxe delivers again. This is amazing.

Cancer Gigalain | Timelapse Making-Of

“This timelapse making-of video shows the creation of one drawing from my project Mechanical / Biological [Crustacean Study]

From artist Steeven Salvat. Just stunning.

VR Partner Life. Happy Valentines Day

This is from the consistently witty YouTuber Community Channel (aka: Natalie Tran.) It’s making the rounds and it is fantastic.

Alike

“In a busy life,Copi is a father who tries to teach the right way to his son,Paste. But… what is the correct path?”

A lovely short animated film. Nicely done.

Bonus Video!

Astronaut Ice Cream Is A Lie

[self explanatory]

Sent in by Trevor L.

Fridayyyyyeeee… (and the livin’ is eeeeasyyy)

It’s video time!

Google Maps: Hyperlapse Around the World

This impressive animation of Google Maps and Google Streetview visuals is a little jarring but super fun to watch.

Pendulus ( for one hour )

A “pendulus” with a light pen on top of a light-sensitive surface for 1 hour = beautiful self-generated art.

The video is indeed 1 hour in length but you can jump ahead and see the progression of the work. Very cool.

Hey btw if you enjoy longer videos with a repetitive, passive style, you may enjoy this beach video as well. (Somewhat different / similar…)

protula bispiralis

This is a 2 minute video of what is known as a “red fanworm” opening up in real time.

The music (Orff’s Carmina Burana, of course) makes it sound like impending doom. Beautiful and ancient.

Bonobo- No Reason (ft. Nick Murphy)

“a film about staying indoors. all visual effects achieved entirely in-camera… a very small camera… and a very big set.”

From apparently-gifted director Oscar Hudson.

I love this band, and I love this video.

Bonus Video!

Wind Games 2017 freestyle Maja Kuczynska final Exceptional

It’s 2017 so we apparently have a new sport called “Wind games”.

I like it! This is an impressive run.

And there you go! All video’d away.

See you in a week, Friday Video fans…

It’s Friday!

I am so excited!!

And it’s video time. Here we go!

Useless Salad Machine

From the Useless Duck Company.

This is a 3d-printed bot that tosses salad. (Simple!)

Over-inflating Footballs in Super Slow Motion – The Slow Mo Guys

[self explanatory]

Just in time for the Superbowl.

How To Make Eyeglasses From Scratch

“With some guidance from Dr. Lewis Dartnell, I collected sand, limestone, and hardwood ashes to melt down into the glass. Then I figured out how to grind the lenses down to the correct curvature to match my prescription. I also made the frames for them out of a tree.”

Not surprisingly, this is an extremely complicated thing to do properly.

The Funny, Amazing and Most Viral Ping Pong Trick Shots Video of 2016

For some reason someone named this “Boring Ping Pong” (and there are numerous re-posts of this video that use that title.)

Anything but boring. Some insane tricks here.

Bonus Video!

Spectacular Footage of a Butterfly Leaving Its Cocoon

[because I wish Spring was a lot closer than it is…]

“The transition from caterpillar to butterfly is a process that consists of four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Observe one caterpillar as it developments into a gorgeous winged insect.”

This video only briefly covers the actual metamorphosis stage but that is definitely worth a read [here]. I first learned about this last year and it is frankly mind-blowing.

And there you go! Your Friday is all set!

See you in seven days everybody.
