Fantastic. I can’t even describe it. Very well done.

Wow. I didn’t think people practiced this stuff. It’s kind of mesmerizing.

Holy cow: It’s Friday.

» 3-year-old recites poem,
A great poem, and a pretty impressive feat for a 3 year old.
» Jetting Thtough the Grand Canyon, 1959
“They wouldn’t be allowed to do it today, but back in 1959, experienced military pilots would sometimes buzz the Grand Canyon when flying out of nearby Nellis AFB.”
Holy cow. This is some very shaky super-8 footage, but it is breathtaking nonetheless.
» Amazing Roger Federer trickshot on Gillette ad shoot
And that ad is *everywhere* lately.
» Indian Pole Gymnastics
[self explanatory, and ouch!]
And now: Your Friday Videos!

» Ratatat: Drugs
How odd. 🙂
» An otter plays with a rock
Sent in by Miko, who has had it on repeat all week.
» Funny Or Die: Iron Chef Supercut
This is partly why I dislike this show. Still funny!!
» The Copenhagen Wheel
Turns any bike into a hybrid-electric bike, plus measures pretty much everything about your trip. Crazy!
» Massive Fireworks Experiment
Pretty much exactly what it says. It looks insane.
» Anamorphic Typography
I like these concepts.
See also their blog.
» The Beginning of Fire in Tamboles Village in Russia
So now you know what that looks like.
What an insane video.

A re-edit that turns comedy into edgy crime thriller. Fascinating.

Sent in by several subscribers.
» Lagoa Multiphysics 1.0 – Teaser
Okay this is a little nerdy, but it’s pretty amazing. Lagoa is a physics engine created by Ubisoft team members. Some of the effects it can create are pretty mind blowing. All of what you see is generated by a computer.
Enjoy your weekend.
Holy cow: It’s Friday!
Better get watching these then…
» Ferris Club
Not so much a mashup as a modernized re-imagining of a trailer for Ferris Beuller’s Day Off.
Sent in by numerous subscribers. (This is making the rounds.)
» RSA Animate – Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us
Dan Pink gave a talk at the RSA (the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) in January 2010. I found this really interesting.

» Lenny Kravitz crashes the VOP Choir in New Orleans
VOP stands for “Voice of Praise”, a New Orleans youth gospel choir. Despite this being filmed by a cohort of Lenny Kravitz, this was allegedly a spontaneous event. If you can ignore the video lag, it’s pretty cool. Lenny’s all right.

Hope your (long?) weekend is fantastic.
Welcome to July.
And here are some videos…
» Pacific Star II
“This is the second trip of my home made high altitude weather balloon photography project, Pacific Star. The balloon was launched at 5:37pm (PST) from Oxnard, CA and reached an altitude of 125,000 feet snapping photos and recording video along the way.”
“A meditation on visual tropes and film violence, ‘Pure’ celebrates the visceral pleasures of cinema.”

» The Kitte: The first ever computer animation (1967)
Created in the Soviet Union. Rudimentary, yes, but look at how far computer animation has come in only 40 or so years.
Happy Friday everybody.
