And we’re back.

It’s Friday!

And video time!

And go!

A new film by Peter Jackson

Jackson is restoring very old footage from World War I. The results are absolutely breathtaking.

The Commercials of David Lynch

This is an exhaustive compilation. Wow.

How NASA Engineers Use Origami To Design Future Spacecraft

[self explanatory]

Pretty amazing that there are people whose job it is to fold expensive technology into very small spaces.

WORLD RECORD DOMINO CUBE – Paluten Tribute with 21,600 Dominoes

A minecraft-style cube made out of 21,600 dominoes.

The build took 32 hours, but crashes down in under 10 seconds.

And that’s what I’ve got!

I hope your Friday is wonderful.

See you next week folks.

You did it!

Pat yourself on the back. It’s Friday!

Good Job!

And yeah sure it’s the 13th but big deal. Every day feels like the 13th am I right?

Here are some videos!

Lasvit Supernova by Petra Krausová

“Supernova” is a chandelier “installation” light sculpture that can manipulate itself into several really beautiful configurations.

It’s hard to get a sense of scale from this video but the thing is huge. (e.g.: this image)

More information here.

Lasvit has created several of these since their inception in 2007. Really beautiful work.

Sand Drawing Robot

“I finally did a test of the sand drawing robot, it worked beautifully. First time.”

What a neat little project!

Trump head squirrel feeder

Crickets Chirping Slowed Down 800% (creepy)

It’s weird. I don’t find it creepy.

See also “God’s Cricket Chorus” which arranges several slowed down recordings of crickets. It sounds like a choir!

Not to be confused with this experiment which I find soothing.

Happy, Happy Friday everybody.

See you in a week.

It’s definitely July!

And definitely Friday and time for videos.

And definitely hot!

Here we go…

“Joost Up Color” Big Spirograph In Progress by Mary Wagner

“Artist Mary Wagner draws with big Spirograph like gears that she designs and makes herself. Here she’s drawing “Joost Up Color” a multicolored figure that’s twenty inches in diameter.”

U2 – With Or Without You – Luca Stricagnoli

One man, three guitar necks, one very large arrangement.

His channel features numerous other covers.

Elegy: GTA USA Gun Homicides

Elegy: GTA USA Gun Homicides

“Elegy: GTA USA Gun Homicides is a self playing version of GTA (Grand Theft Auto.) The project is basically a game as a data visualizer – a daily reenactment of the total number of USA gun homicides since January 1st, 2018. The project works from a daily update of gun homicides as scraped from gunviolencearchive.org [http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/]”

It restarts every day at midnight. I viewed this at 2:15pm and it appeared to have been done for its day. Your mileage may vary. It depends on how quickly it gets through the list.

A weird, harrowing project.

RimbaTubes: Daft Punk Medley

“A medley of Daft Songs played on the RimbaTubes and a plethora of other instruments by my Snubby J clones!”

This took some effort. Crazy.

And: now I know what “rimbatubes” are. 🙂

Bonus Video!

The Overlook Hotel Classic Horror Mashup. AMDS Films. Movie Mashup VO

“Hello, here is my brand new mashup movie, it’s a reflection on the horror movies and novelists who officiate in this genre, including Stephen King, but it’s still distracting, I hope you’ll enjoy this new experience. :)”

Editing = interesting recontextualization.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday, everybody!

See you next week.
