Welcome to the last Friday of November 2019.

Can you believe it? So fast!

It’s video time. Let’s go!

MOCEAN

A film by Chris Bryan

“Heres some of my favourite moments from 2018. All images where shot using The Phantom Flex 4K camera with Leica Summilux lenses and Chris Bryan Films custom underwater housing’s.”

Absolutely stunning footage.

More info at his website.

Billie Eilish: Same Interview, The Third Year | Vanity Fair

“Vanity Fair has time capsuled Billie Eilish’s responses to the same questions for the last three years and tracked the almost-18-year-old’s swift rise to pop super stardom.”

Their last version of this was actually how I ever came to know about Billie Eilish in the first place.

She’s a super interesting person, going through a whirlwind circus on a daily basis.

Making the rounds, somewhat obviously.

How the Big Green Egg is Made

“Since 1974, producing the highest quality ceramic cookers has been the mission of Big Green Egg.”

I still covet these but have no place to put them.

Pretty great.

Thermite Thanksgiving

“Cooking a twenty-five pound turkey in under thirty seconds with ten pounds of thermite.”

Hopefully it doesn’t really need to be said but: DO NOT ATTEMPT!

Holy CRAP that actually looks terrifying.

Have a lovely weekend everybody. See you in December.

Fridaaaaaay!

It’s hear and it’s spectacular.

Let’s watch some videos!

Bar installs 70+ Big Mouth Billy Bass fish to sing popular songs

“Do you remember the Big Mouth Bill Bass singing fish that was so popular back in the 90s? The owner of the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Chicago bought more than 70 of them, hung them on the wall and choreographed them all to sing popular songs.”

They helpfully link to an actual view of a performance here.

A complicated setup! I like it. (Sort of.)

UAV drone LED light show before the Air Show at T-MOTOR HQ

“T-MOTOR HQ locates in Nanchang city, where the first Airplane of The People’s Republic of China took off.”

This must have looked absolutely stunning in person. Crazy!

Life in Miniature

“Kath Holden is an artist of the everyday. Inspired by the world around her, Kath’s creations are whimsical yet keenly observed, and a far cry from the genteel museum pieces that her contemporaries are producing.”

It’s weird: they’re just “ordinary” items.

How Do We Know How Old The Sun Is?

“ROG astronomer Brendan explains how we determine the age of our Solar System from space rocks and how we can work out how long the Sun has left before it engulfs the inner planets.”

Well spoken little short animated video.

That, as they say, is a wrap.

Happy Friday!

See you next week I hope.

Yay Friday!

And now we’re officially in “the Holiday Season”. This year zipped right by.

But it’s Friday! And there are videos!

Even More Covers

“A series of 66 animated vintage book graphics”

Created by animator Henning M. Lederer

You can also see the two previous videos in the same vein. Really beautifully executed.

MRE GFX

MRE GFX

MRE® is a motion / Graphic designer from the UK.

Some incredible work here.

His Instagram feed is excellent as well (personal fave here.)

Inside a $5.5M Floating Mansion in Miami

I mean I guess that’s one way to react to climate change.

It’s beautiful, but also as expected: way over the top.

Sony Northlandz

This video offers no content in its description. It’s actually a short documentary about one of the world’s largest model railroad sets. Created by Bruce Zaccagnino (miniatures), Matthew Albanese (photographer)

This video is also a promo for the Sony DSC-QX100 camera module for mobile phones, which is now discontinued.

It’s actually an incredibly impressive setup. Crazy.

Also (related, and making the rounds) there’s this story about Rod Stewart’s incredibly detailed model railroad. Who knew?!

These have been your Friday Videos!

See you next week.

Howwwwwwwdy Friday people.

It’s video time. Are you ready?

Okay!

Stan Lee Sculpture Timelapse

By sculptor Steven Richter

Incredibly detailed.

Elements – Art film by Maxim Zhestkov

“Elements is an experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov about nature, physics, art and love. More than 2 billion elements / particles governed by tensions and forces of nature were used to tell stories and show emotions through the motion of collective behavior.”

Large Formation Flight

“Formation flying, two or more aircraft traveling and maneuvering together in a disciplined, synchronized, predetermined manner. In a tight formation, such as is typically seen at an air show, aircraft may fly less than three feet (one metre) apart and must move in complete harmony, as if they are joined together.”

Mario Mathy “1987” Jumping Dance

Well it certainly is… uh… “energetic” I guess?

These have been your Friday Videos!

Welcome to Friday!

It’s finally here. And so is November! That was really fast.

Nine Inch Nails – Closer But It’s Ghostbusters By Ray Parker Jr.

“A.K.A. Closebusters.”

I love this!

RACING DRONE VS ROLLERCOASTER HELIX! A different POV

Some incredibly intricate flying here. Really beautifully shot.

Careful: lots of twisty-turny angles.

The Finest Bird Song of 1890

“A mechanical singing bird mechanism. Made around 120 years ago in Paris, probably by Bontems.”

What an elegant little device! Beautiful.

Many more at The House Of Automata.

What If There Was No Friction for 1 Minute?

“Friction is what allows us to move…and to slow down. Friction is how we pick things up …and hold on to them. To be totally honest, there isn’t much we could do without friction!”

Funny, but also I never thought about this.

I bet astronauts do though!

And that’s what I’ve got for this windy, rainy November Friday.

Have a great day and a great weekend!
