November 24th, 2017

It’s the Friday after US Thanksgiving. Is everybody still okay?

Yeah? Good?

Ok!

Videos?

Eclectic Method: Hot Ones Hot Sauce Hot Mix

Basically a mix/mashup of several of the [celebrity] vs. hot wings videos that have become popular in the past year.

I love this!

Contouring 101

This is a crazy, hilarious video and it’s definitely making the rounds.

Balloon Costumes

These take hours to set up. They look fantastic.

Oh My!

A pretty great audio creation based entirely on samples / loops from the Wizard of Oz

Look out, Pogo, there’s a new kid in town.

Bonus Video!

Star Wars – Cantina Band – Orgue de barbarie

Posted by YouTuber Brice Dudouet, who custom created the score paper roll for this performance.

This is an early 20th century barrel organ.

And now: time for more pie!

See you all in seven days.

Friday once again.

One of only six Fridays left in 2017. Crazy.

So here we go: Video time.

CONTINUITY ERRORS | ft/ Chris & Jack

For the OCD among you this may be a frustrating viewing experience. 🙂

But! Funny!

Robert Levin plays Mozart on Mozart’s piano

Specifically his last piano, which he bought in 1782. (He had several throughout his life.)

It sounds a little weird.

Low Earth Orbit

“Orbital drone movements are the ones with power to convert two dimensional images into dancing focal layers escaping out of the frame. We wanted to further explore the technique, with high altitude long orbits, along with ones very close to the ground, we call them ‘Orbital drone-lapses’. These shots are a mix of automatic and manual flights.”

Five Monks, Five Days, One Sand Mandala

“The mandala they created is a Shitro mandala — ‘the mandala of the One Hundred Peaceful and Wrathful Deities’.”

So beautiful.

Bonus Video!

Queen Baby: Food Critic

“she’s like a tiny drunk Gordon Ramsay”

This guy uses Face Swap Live to perform a tiny, hilarious sketch about his kid’s reactions to his cooking.

It’s funny!

Et voilà! Les vidéos de Vendredi sont complète! (These have been your Friday Videos.)

Have a great weekend everybody!

Friday again!

Just like that!

There are only 44 shopping days until Xmas. If you do that kind of thing.

No pressure!

To the videos…

Spoon: Do I Have To Talk To You?

Directed by Brook Linder, who’s directed quite a few cool music videos.

Some odd photoshopping in this one, and a great, great song (from a band I love.)

When Did Time Travel Come From?

A great little mini-documentary from Nerdwriter.

The Roots feat. Bilal: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

So much heart in this performance. And it’s a serious message piece as well.

I love it.

Used Car Commercial // 1996 Honda Accord

A really well made commercial for a quite old used Honda Civic.

Making the rounds, so much so that it caused a bidding war for the car. Crazy!

This guy knows how to make a car ad. So good.

Bonus Video!

Uptown Funky Kittens

Straight up infant feline manipulation.

But still entertaining.

And there you go. Friday Videos!

Have a great weekend everybody, and remember the fallen.

Friday at last!

And now it’s a whole new month and everything. You guyssss!!

So videos. Yes. Got it. Go!

Oh My Gourd – A Halloween Stop Motion Pumpkin Carving Experiment

“Dozens upon dozens upon dozens of pumpkins were cut, gutted, rotated, scraped, poked, slapped, and banged to make this stop-motion animation and the music that bring it to life. It took a few years – pumpkins rot, schedules get busy – but we loved discovering the methods”

The sheer effort to complete this is so crazy.

Why Salt And Pepper?

[self explanatory]

1945 Car Dashcam / Rumble Seat Cam

“An early ‘dashcam’ style archive footage film showing a trip through downtown Manhattan, New York City along 8th Avenue, 5th Avenue, and 50th Street.”

(Also, you know, just known as a “camera”.)

Pretty great though!

Perpetual motion machines, compilation of Ideas

“40 models in 4 years”

They’re all kind of weird, but they seem to work. Interesting…

Bonus Video!

this is why we fly….

“…sometimes what a pilot sees in a day, people won’t see in their lifetimes.. amazing Queenstown, New Zealand.”

It really is beautiful. 🙂

And there we go. Videos. For your Friday.

See you all in seven days.
