Hey look, it’s Friday!

It’s the last one in March 2022. I can’t believe that went by so quickly. (For me at least.)

It’s video time!

Playing Darts

Or, I guess, attempting to…

This feels like a Mr. Bean “POV” video.

Funny! Well done.

Succession But It’s Arrested Development

Making the rounds and quite good.

How To Befriend A Crow

“In this video I want to show you how to make friends with a wild crow in 4 steps. All you need is some food and patience.”

Note: they can become quite attached!

John Warnock Introduces Adobe Illustrator in 1987

1987!

This demo is being done on an original Macintosh computer.

It’s easy to forget how old some super-common software is now. I first used Excel in 1983 on a Tandy model 100. Crrrrrazy.

Ta-daaaaa! Friday Videos!

I hope your weekend is fantastic.

Stay safe! See you next Friday.

Welcome back, Friday people.

We did it! Another week, and that included the switch to Daylight Saving Time. (Hopefully for the second-last time, where I live.)

It’s video time! Let’s take a look!

The Book of Ice Cream – Chapter 1 (An Auralnauts Star Wars Story)

Auralnauts are excellent at repurposing Star Wars content.

Well done.

Making the rounds, and deservedly so.

Mr Bean in Half-Life 2 Episode Two

A pretty great little mashup / montage from YouTuber “eli_handle_b·wav” who appears to enjoy placing other characters into Half Life 2 as well.

Well done.

365 Days Mushroom Growth Time Lapse | Another Perspective

“Hundreds of hours of filming, photographing and editing. After one year of filming macro time lapse of 9 different types of fungi I grew in my basement, I finally finished this project pressing 5TB of image data into a 3 minute time lapse video.”

This is really beautiful.

Happy Friday!

It’s the second anniversary of the declaration of the covid-19 pandemic.

I hope you’re all doing as well as possible. Where I live, things are slowly reopening.

And now it’s video time!

Putin’s oligarchs & the London Laundromat

“Buckle up. Come on a tour of London with a difference and find out how Putin’s oligarchs hide and spend their money in the capital. Money-laundering expert Oliver Bullough is your guide”

The real problem is just an utter lack of real forward motion when it comes to law enforcement spending and enforcement.

This could literally be any major city in any western country, just that London appears to be an epicenter.

Seth Rogen & Nick Offerman Test Crafting Gadgets | WIRED

“Nick Offerman is as well known for his craftwork as he is for acting, and Seth Rogen’s pottery skills are next-level. So, who better than them to step in as WIRED correspondents* for a day and review a gaggle of crafting gadgets.”

I will admit: not a pairing I expected, and they work pretty well together.

Also: Nick Offerman has shaved (!)

108 Rare and Bizarre Media Types

From YouTuber “The 8-Bit Guy”, who has a significant following.

I don’t really like his delivery but wow this is a crazy array of media and data storage methods.

Nerdy. Yes.

“A demo of modular electronics with Pockit as of early 2022, after several upgrades in the recent months based on everyone’s feedback.”

A pretty educational little setup. I like it!

Your Friday is now full of videos.

Have a great weekend everybody.

BANDALOOP Takes Flight – Dancing on a Skyscraper

“You’ve probably never seen anything like this before. Six members of the vertical dance troupe BANDALOOP descended the façade of the new 100 Northern Ave. building commemorating its grand opening at Boston’s Seaport District. The performers are held securely by special rigging allowing them to mesmerize audiences with dynamic physicality and intricate choreography. You’ll want to turn on the sound for this one.”

Honestly: kind of amazing. Wow

Well done!
