Happy Friday!

We are in the “Holiday Season”. That’s what it says right here. It may not feel like it, but we are.

We can make it. I feel it.

And also: it is now time for the Friday Videos…

This Is Competitive Double Dutch

“These pint-sized players can probably outjump you.”

They 100% can!

Holy crap!

Making the rounds (absolutely right it is!)

Dolly Parton Watches Fan Covers on YouTube

“On this episode of ‘You Sang My Song,’ country music legend Dolly Parton watches fan covers of her songs on YouTube.”

Demonstration on Flowave

“Monochromatic and random waves generated in the Flowave tank. Also single and multiple water spouts.”

And here’s a quick explainer about how the FloWave device works.

Company website here.

Super interesting.

Mixtape for the Milky Way – Video Games

An origami animation about playing arcade games by Eric Power.

And there ya go! Friday Videos! Sorted!

Happy Friday. Happy belated US ThanksGiving. Happy Holidays!

Stay safe and stay sane. And we’ll see you next week.

Happy Friday!

We made it! We’re making it! We can make it!

And! It’s video time!

Exclamation points!!

Shot on iPhone 12 — Everyday Experiments. Get creative at home.

These are actually some super creative experiments you can try using really any camera.

Great ideas! I was sceptical. The results looks like CGI.

What Happens When A Freerunner Loses His Phone? w/ Jason Paul

“The moment freerunner Jason Paul is dropping his phone from a roof is when a spectacular hunt through Hamburg, Germany begins.”

More than the outstanding stunt jumping, check out the editing!

Really well done.

Shamelessly promoted by Red Bull

Growing Sunflower Time Lapse – Seed To Flower In 83 Days

From BoxLapse which is a channel all about plant growth time-lapse videos.


Also features the jazz stylings of Hara Noda.

David Lynch on his daily routine – why habits are useful for creativity

An interview with Charlie Rose from what appears to be the early 1990s.

And there we go. Friday Videos allll wrapped up.

We’re going to get through this.

Stay safe. Happy Friday.

We have arrived… at Friday…

The Thirteenth!! [orchestra!]

Trying to Catch a 1,000 MPH Baseball

This is the follow-up video for the build of a baseball cannon that can actually fire a baseball faster than the speed of sound.

Hilarity… ensues. 🙂

How to Make the World’s Best Paper Airplane

“John Collins, also known as ‘The Paper Airplane Guy,’ teaches us how to fold and fly our very own version of his ‘world record’ paper airplane.”

That record, which still stands, is 226 feet, 10 inches.

There’s an additional video where he talks about general aerodynamics as well.

Being 10 in 2020

“Every ten-year-old kid goes through big changes, all while simultaneously learning to navigate and understand the wider world. By nature, this makes them incredibly resilient and adaptable. Their resilience might give them an edge when it comes to taking on the huge shifts happening in 2020, from COVID-19 to nationwide protests to a polarizing election.”

This is a moving short film. Also we should all look at this video again in 2 years.

Japanese meal for cats

The cats are suuuuuper attentive.

Well hello there Friday folks!

Welcome to Friday! And your Friday Videos!

Are we ready?

Let’s gooooooo…

Animals With Autotune Compilation

You are welcome!

My cat always responds angrily to any video featuring pet voices. He didn’t move a muscle for this one, which indicates how weirdly mangled these voices are.

A Taste of Los Angeles

Created by Viennese filmmaking group “FilmSpektakel” [] who have also made “taste of” hyperlapse videos of New York and (duh) Vienna. Beautifully done.

How Do We Know How Old The Sun Is?

You know what? That is an excellent question!

An illuminating short doc on this topic. Well done!

The Forgotten History of Home Video

“In this essay I will tell you about 15-30 years of home video history that you have never heard about from anyone, anywhere.”

Honest to god I found this very illuminating.

It might be a bit too nerdy but man: the tech we used to use feels like caveman tools now.

Well that’s the Friday Videos all wrapped up!

I hope your Friday is fantastic, and that your weekend will be relaxing and calm.

Happy Friday!

See you next week.
