Friday at last.
And it’s the 13th! (Lucky you.)
Here we go.
» 24 Hours of Neon
Numerous time lapse videos of the Vegas Strip, shot from a hotel balcony.
Great behind the scenes available here.
» Fort Worth Explosions
A series of electrical transformers explode after a particularly heavy thunderstorm in Fort Worth. Crazy!
» Street Dance in Paris
And then some!
» VE and VJ Day Celebrations in London (1945)
And it’s in colour.
» Coffee Time
Animation by Ching Wen Wu.
Enjoy your weekend.
I know what you’re thinking: Friday at last!
So here goes…

What a great surprise.

» Popping Balloons Tell Stop Motion Story For MTV Brazil
Really well done.
Created by ad agency ParanoidBR in São Paulo Brasil.
» Pabersematao! Snowmobile accident moto nieve fail
I’m extremely glad my day is not going like this. Yikes!
» Gelatin cubes dropped onto solid surface High Speed Video 6200 fps
It’s kind of hypnotic.
» Superplexus Circles, 24 inch
“Playtime is about an hour for a player to get to the end, if you don’t fall off! CIRCLES is meant to be challenging, though doable.”
This is a pretty fascinating construction.
Enjoy your mid-Spring weekend!
Happy Royal Wedding Friday.
However, no, I will not be posting videos of the Royal Wedding. 🙂
» 4-27-11 Tornado Tuscaloosa, Al
Alabama experienced more tornadoes in two days than they typically experience in the entire month of April. This is one of many videos of the multiple tornadoes, and it’s definitely gripping viewing.

» Sebastian’s Voodoo
A great little animated short film.
» The Mountain
Shot in HD time-lapse by Terje Sorgjerd.

Kind of fascinating.

» Cathy’s House – Wonderful Day
Uh… it’s a little odd. And somewhat creepy. But funny.

» Not the Royal Wedding
Let’s compare and contrast in about a week. (Hey! It’s on a Friday!)
» Paper Record Player Wedding Invite
This is a wedding invitation sent to guests of Karen and Mike. It plays a song they wrote and recorded. A totally great, original idea.
See how they made it here.
» Peacock Spider
“My footage of the courtship and mating behaviour of the Australian peacock spider Maratus volans.”
This is, apparently, an incredibly rare event to come across much less record. It’s also pretty fascinating. Like Arachnid modern dance.

» Mel’s Hidden Talent
Mel can expertly make a wide variety of animal sounds. Bizarre.
Have a fantastic Friday and Easter Weekend everybody!
Happy Friday, video viewers.
» Dot Dot Dot
The title doesn’t really do this justice. It’s a dramatic reading of a childishly bad online review of the flash videogame Dot Dot Dot. Hi-larious.
» Wood xylophone
A really clever little video. I won’t spoil it.
Sent in by Jennifer G.
» Meat Orgy on Turkish TV Show
Uh… just what the hell is going on here?!
» 700 kids in rural Chongqing dance to Michael Jackson’s
Have a most excellent weekend.
Here you go…
» Best of a Normal Day
An offshoot of the pong master videos, these are referred to as “Normal Day tricks”. It’s kind of fascinating.
» Flula in Germany
» Pyromaniac On Wheels
Definitely do not try this at home (even though it looks amazing.)
» 1984 News Story on Debut of the Compact Disc (CD)
Ahhhh the mid-80s. This is technically 1985, but still a ridiculous story.
Also: This guy sure likes re-organizing his music collection… verrrry… ssssslowlyyy…
» Bacon Cologne
Here’s to a lovely weekend [clink!]
It’s time for some videos…
» Camera Capture
A funny little film made by SheepFilms.
» Top 10 Videos of Unknown Chicks Rocking Extremely Hard
It should say “virtually unknown extremely talented chicks”. This is encouraging!
Sent in by Lauren K. (who plays a mean guitar herself.)
» N.Y.C. (No York City)
“A five minute film by Rick Liss. A portrait of New York City circa early 1980s.”
Sent in by Ashy.

“I spent a week capturing one of the biggest aurora borealis shows in recent years.”
Shot in HD by Terje Sorgjerd.

Happy Friday everybody. Have a great weekend.

» Le Flâneur
a.k.a.: Exquisite time-lapse video of Paris created by Luke Shepard. Very well done.
» Two Dogs Dining
» Lynx Excite Angel Ambush London Victoria
Lynx is the UK’s version of Axe body spray. This is a neat augmented reality promo.

» 12-year-old Pong Master
“I know how he spent his spring break: alone in his house, throwing ping pong balls into cups of water.”
No kidding. Crazy.
» World’s Largest LEGO Great Ball Contraption
So it turns out there are things called “LEGO Great Ball Contraptions”, and this is the largest one in the world (made of Lego.) Crazy!
Have a great weekend Friday people.
Phew! It’s finally Friday!
Here is some Friday viewing…
» Star Trek: What’s in Spock’s Scanner
Spacebook, you say…
Sent in by Simon B.

Artwork created by embedded explosives. It’s certainly unique.
» 1 million fps video of bullets
I have no idea how they got some of these shots. Crazy.
» College Humor: Forgotten 80’s Videogames
“They couldn’t all be Mario.”
Some hilarious ideas in this.

An odd 18th century retelling of inception.
Sent in by Stef G.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Hello and welcome back to Friday!
Here: watch stuff!!
» Girl Walk // All Day
Some great public, impromptu dance interpretation to tracks from Girl Talk’s “All Day” album. Just shy of 8 minutes of pure joy.
» Eclectic Method – The King’s Remix
» Conan O’Brien Kinetic Typography
Conan’s farewell speech made on his last day hosting the tonight show, rendered in typography.
It made me a bit dizzy but it was still great.
» Making Books Is Fun! (to watch)
How books are printed and bound, circa 1947. What a difference 64 years makes.

Happy Friday everybody.
