Welcome to Friday!

Phewwww Mid-May too. I’ll take it.

Here are some videos!

Michel Julienne – One Of The Best Car Stunt Reels I’ve Ever Seen!!!

“Michel JULIENNE, an amazing vehicle Stunt Coordinator from France, has done more than 700 movies since his debut 1974 in “Fear of the city” with Jean-Paul Belmondo.

“I was lucky enough to meet him for my book “Stunning Stunts”. A collection of the funniest work stories from the most famous and diverse stunt people worldwide.”

From YouTuber Melanie Benna.

Some CRAZY stunts here.

Nirvana vs Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit up

From YouTuber Thriftshop XL

Weird.

Does not top my favorite Nirvana mashup, but it’s okay.

Will Bananas work as Engine Oil? Let’s find out!

“Is it a myth that bananas were once used successfully as engine oil by JC Baudot and Jacques Seguela in their Citroën 2CV as they crossed the Atacama desert in 1959? Let’s find out! We’ll run several tests to include a 30-minute engine run with banana “BW-30” as engine oil to see if the engine will survive.”

Is this really the extremes we’re going to now? 😉

Well hello Friday people!

Here we are: Friday again, and time for Videos!

THE ARCTIC

“THE ARCTIC began in October 2018 and lasted for about seven months. It records the crystallization processes of different salts. During this period, we explored various forms of the crystals and their wonderful growth patterns. Most of the footage was captured by time-lapse photography.”

Beautiful.

Supernova – Art film by Maxim Zhestkov

“Everything around and inside us was conceived in a huge explosion of a star billions of years ago… and, probably, recycled from other matrices myriad times. In this eternal carousel of matter, particles gather, form complicated structures and then burst into all directions fusing atoms together and producing new elements and points of view, new colours and patterns of perception.”

Completely rendered in cgi.

He has several other videos which may also interest you.

Inside a scam call center

“These guys are a particularly nasty group from Kolkata in India. They run a refund scam and this video shows what their call center looks like, how they operate, who and where they are. I’ve sent a link to the unblurred version of this video to the Kolkata Cyber Police (for all the good that it will do).”

Rhysonic Live at Sofar Sounds, Wellington, April 2019

“Thanks to Sofar Sounds for inviting me to perform 🙂 This is the first show I have done with the new Rhysonic Wheel which I have been building in my garage for the last year or so.”

What a whimsical musical invention.

Much more info at the Rhysonic Facebook Page.

He creates a pretty dream-like sound. I love it.

And that wraps it up for another Friday of special videos.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Happy Friday everybody!

First Friday in May 2019 and already here are your Friday Videos!

Let’s roll…

Seeing Inside the Sun

“Dr. Robert Stein, professor of Physics and Astronomy at Michigan State Universe has long envisioned a day when he could use supercomputer programs to ‘see’ through the roiling surface of the sun and glimpse its dynamic interior”

The visualizations here are stunning.

Behind the Scenes of 911 Calls

“Inside an emergency dispatch center in San Francisco, 911 operators navigate the daily stresses of their job.”

This is 100% not a job I could do.

What a beautifully rendered short animated film!

Suggested by Lauren M.

Floyd Lloyd Rocks!

“My name is Floyd Lloyd, and I live in Austin, Texas, and for some reason back in 2000 I ran into Nick Nolte at the Sundance Film Festival, and I asked him to say Floyd Lloyd Rocks. He was hilarious, and I just began to wonder how many more celebs I could get to say it.”

18 years of celebrities saying it at Sundance. Amazing.

Making the rounds. I found it entertaining.

This concludes our video processing for today.

See you in a week everybody. Happy Friday!
