April 1st, 2016

It is Friday again! But a whole new month.

And you know what that means…

World Fair

“From the perspective of the 21st century, it’s hard to imagine what a marvel the 1939-1940 New York World’s Fair would have been to its visitors.”

A lot more info here.

A beautiful, carefully curated short documentary using a lot of unique footage and access to still-living attendees of this event.

Great work.

Eggstatic – stroboscopic patterns for Easter eggs

Yes, I am a week late. This was sent to me right after Easter weekend and it’s making the rounds, and wow is it beautiful. Technologically clever as well. I like.

Never Pay For Food Again In NYC

“…As many sophisticated urban survivalists know, there is an extraordinary amount of perfectly good, even gourmet, food set out every night in sanitary bags outside city delis, bakeries, restaurants, and supermarkets.”

This was sent in by many subscribers and it’s not the first time I’ve heard of this in the past ten years, but it is the most well-executed summary.

It is crazy / infuriating to think of the waste we accept every day…

Amazing Cartoon Impressions!

Brock Baker dazzles with a dizzying array of spot-on impressions of cartoon voices, often in unlikely scenarios.

Well done.

Bonus Video!

Rainbow Crayon Bud Vase

YouTuber Peter Brown takes 56 crayons, melts them into a block, and then uses a lathe to turn that into a vase.

Well done. 🙂

And there we go! Happy Friday, video fans.

See you next week.
