Dueling Carls

An iPhone app called “Talking Carl” argues with itself, to hilarious effect.
You may want to watch the volume on this one. 🙂

Soemon is a Japanese 8-piece Koto ensemble. In this video they perform Tool’s “Lateralus” to extremely dramatic effect.

Master of Business Card Throwing

I know. Sounds ridiculous. Check out this Samsung-sponsored video.

Happy Friday! More next week. Promise.

Here are some viewing selections…

» Civilization


“Civilization, a video mural created for the new Standard hotel in New York City, depicts a journey from hell to heaven interpreted through modern film language using computer-enhanced found footage…”

This is impressive, and quite beautiful.

MGMT: Flash Delerium

The first video from their hotly anticipated new CD. I am a fan. (As many of you likely know.)

People shot footage of grocery stores from their cars?! Why?

Have a great weekend!

I know the last thing some of you want to do is sit in front of a screen since it’s getting warm outside…

But if you do: here you go.

Absolutely THE FUNNIEST response video to the whole “Trololololo” meme. Hi. Larious.

Friday again!

Here you go…

» Sandra Bullock: Worst Actress Acceptance Speech, 2010 Razzie Awards

Sandra Bullock: Worst Actress Acceptance Speech, 2010 Razzie Awards

Because this got nowhere near the exposure of her Oscar acceptance speech.
I say well done for being a good sport. She gave this speech the same day she won her Oscar.

» David Lynch: A Goofy Movie

David Lynch: A Goofy Movie

Created by Cody Richardson in 2007. This is impressive. And (naturally) inexplicably disturbing.

And time for some Friday videos.

If there is a theme to today’s videos (except for the first one), it is “20/20 hindsite versus embarrassment.” Dicsuss!

Darth Vader dialogue replacements by James Earl Jones. High entertainment.

Worth it on its own, but how about those comments? 🙂

» Windows 386 Promo Video

Windows 386 Promo Video

This is one of the most cringe-worthy tech videos I’ve ever seen. I held off posting this since I first saw it in 2008, but it’s definitely its own brand of stupid. Especially right around this point in the video. Eeeeyikes.

» Birthday Meltdown

Birthday Meltdown

Discovered, somehow, by Ashy.

Bonus Video:

» Tro-lo-lo-lo-lo. Lo-lo-lo. Lo-lo-lo…

Tro-lo-lo-lo-lo. Lo-lo-lo. Lo-lo-lo...

This one has been making the rounds lately. I was sent numerous versions of the 18 seconds of chorus this arguably creepy vocalist sings (for example, and thanks to all of you,) but this is the full length version, presented in hi-res. Yikes…
In the event it matters, this song is Russian and roughly translates to “I am very glad, because I’m finally back home (vocalization)” The singer is one Edward Gil, an apparently quite popular Soviet-era crooner. (More info.)
Sent in by many, but this one via Mike T.

Welcome to March!

Have a great weekend.

Google Liquid Galaxy Demo at TED

This has been making the rounds. This is a project that was put together by a Google staffer on what the company calls “20 percent time”, used for personal projects. Crazy!
Great coverage here.

Dumbfoundead - Jam Session 2.0

A live, international jam session. Not a bad little track either. You can download the mp3 there as well.
