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.

» 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.

» 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.

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.

Friiiiday! And we’re only 24 days away from the first day of Spring. Phew!
Here we go…
» Thom Yorke has to Pee
Not even a full week later, and we have our first repurposing of the latest Radiohead song. Oddly funny.
» ET Sequel: ET-X
Essentially a mashup non-trailer for a fictitious non-film.
This must have taken quite a bit of time. Nicely done.
» Funny Talking Animals
There are many promos for the BBC show “Walk On The Wild Side”. They are all hilarious.
“Alan! Alan! Alan!”

Here we go.
» Catalina: Moullinex
This video was created using an XBox 360 Kinect device to capture performances. It looks very unique. Well done. Great song as well.
» Radiohead: Lotus Flower
From their soon-to-be-released album “The King Of Limbs”, which you can pre-order directly from the band here.
» Locked in a Vegas Hotel Room with a Phantom Flex
What is a Phantom Flex? It’s a camera that can shoot extremely slow-motion. It can shoot as low as 2,800 frames per second.
See also this amazing video of lightning over Chicago.
» Mr. Beam: Living Room
“We created a unique physical 3D video-mapping experience by turing a white living room into a spacious 360° projection area.”
This is an intriguing effect.
Happy Friday people.
