It is Friday!

It is the last Friday in May!

It is Video Time!!

I hope you’re all well. Let’s begin…

Abandoned Store Left in 1963 | Everything is Still Inside

This is the “153 Mile Store” located in Williams Lake, in the interior of British Columbia.

The store is immaculate and has a crazy array of products in it in virtually untouched condition.

There is a movement underway to declare it a Canadian Heritage Site.

Fantastic!

Restoring a 85-year-old Leica camera

This is an amazing deep dive into how to take apart, clean, mildly improve, and reassemble a classic, vintage, iconic film camera.

The guy definitely knows what he’s doing.

That engineer being one Korey Kiepert.

Really well presented.

Also: I miss roller coasters.

Mob Psycho 100 – Opening | 99

The animation reminds me somewhat of Cyriak only definitely smothered with Anime flourishes.

It is Friday!

It is late May!

Where I live: It is HOT! And a long weekend.

That’s pretty great!

And! Videos! Let’s gooooo.

Project Starline: Feel like you’re there, together

“Imagine looking through a sort of magic window, and through that window, you see another person, life-size and in three dimensions. Project Starline is a technology project from Google that combines advances in hardware and software to enable friends, families and co-workers to feel together, even when they’re cities (or countries) apart.”

I think I need to see this in person. The reactions here are everything.

This was a good week. I hope yours was too.

Video time!

Mow-Rio Kart | How to play Mario Kart with a lawn mower & drone

“By Ian Padgham, aka @origiful on Instagram

This is BANANAS!!!

So well done. I watched it a few times.

The surprising reason behind Chinatown’s aesthetic

“The iconic ‘Chinatown’ look started as a survival strategy.”

From Vox. Well done.

Enhancing Photorealism Enhancement

Nothing about the title or the description actually tells you what this video is about. 🙂

This is Intel, using a very specific A.I., to make footage from GTA V look more photorealistic.

It’s fascinating!

A Day in Roaring 20’s Berlin | 1927 AI Enhanced Film [ 60 fps,4k]

I like many of these vintage film restoration efforts. The only exception is the audio, which feels tacked on.

This is great. Like it was shot by a time traveler.

Bonus Video!

Baby Got Bach

“Bach, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and conductor Leonard Bernstein join forces in this rousing masterpiece.”

From bizarre YouTuber “There I Ruined It“.

Ta daaaa! Friday Videos! Done!

Happy Friday! See you next week everybody.

Well hello there Friday people!

My week was a little slammed so I unfortunately only have three videos this week. Sorry.

Here we go!

Why a movie like Who Framed Roger Rabbit will NEVER be made again

I mean you can imagine the answer. The budget would be ridiculous.

A pretty great breakdown.

Also I forgot that Robert Zemeckis directed this film. It turns 34 years old this year. Still a great film.

Fly with us on a drone taxi!

The latest “E-Hang” flying taxi flying autonomously in Fuzhou, China a couple of weeks ago.

I’m not gonna lie: I kind of can’t wait to be able to do this. It looks fantastic.

My Metal bunny

A very brief, jaunty animation from YouTuber Aghilation. D’aw?

And there we go! Friday Videos (briefly.)

Happy Friday! Happy May! Happy Weekend!

See you in seven days.
