Time Lapse of airplanes taking off

This just makes me want to watch koyaanisqatsi though.

iPad games… FOR CATS!

not sure how this doesn’t end up scratching your screen… but the cats seem to be having fun!

I Heard it From The Polly (New Wave) – Marvin Gaye with Kurt Cobain

This is the worst best mash-up evar. some songs are just made to be mixed together.

Joplin Tornado Aftermath Video

Not to make light of a horrible situation and a tragic event, but I think I would have helped myself to a drink after this one. The Tulsa Red Cross is taking donations, you can call (918) 831-1100, or you can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.

Video comic about dark matter

Dark Matters from PHD Comics on Vimeo.

In the vein of RSAnimate, here’s a comic drawn around an audio track of two guys discussing what we know and don’t know about dark matter. It sounds like they were recording in a restaurant or something so there’s some annoying background noise, but otherwise it’s a really interesting watch.

Pomplamoose covers the Angry Birds Theme

and a well edited video to boot!

Cake + The Pink Ranger = Win?

A strange fan video that works surprisingly well. Also, PINK RANGER WHAT!?

Pendulum Wave

Fascinating! I could not look away. Some interesting experiments and demonstrations in the related videos too.

Breakfast Interrupted

Breakfast destroyed in slow motion.

Marty McLoser vs Marty McRich

So the wife and I got into a lengthy discussion the other day about the time paradoxes in the first Back to the Future (not II or III) and we devised a theory to satisfy the time loop paradox at the end. it goes a little something like this: In the original movie, Marty McLoser watches Doc Brown die at the hands of the Libyans at the Twin Pine Mall. He goes back in time, disrupts and reconciles his parents and shoots “Back to the Future!” during the lighting strike at the clock tower. He arrives 10 minutes early to save Doc (who refused to read the note waring him about his untimely demise) and watches as his previous self zips to the past.

BUT!

we are mistaken to think that the Marty that Marty McLoser sees heading back to break up his parents is the original Marty McLoser. It’s not. Things have already changed due to Marty McLoser’s meddling (as evidenced by the Lone Pine mall sign) and the second Marty is the progeny the “successful and rich” Lorraine and George McFly (or Marty McRich as we began calling him). Why would Marty McRich be hanging out with Doc Brown? Our theory goes that: Doc Brown sought out Marty McRich because he knew there was danger of a time paradox. Doc read the note that Marty McLoser gave him and knew McLoser was heading back to the future so Doc had no choice but to sabotage the second delorean and kill Marty McRich (who he never liked much anyway) thus stopping a dangerous time loop paradox from happening.

Ultra compact carbon neutral house

A tour of the Cube from Mike Page on Vimeo.

A tiny house! 9′x9′x9′ i want to park one of these on the edge of a clearing in the middle of nowhere and hide out and write.

OMG ants!

The awesome engineering behind an ant colony. There’s an incredible Radiolab episode about “Emergence” that has a fascinating segment about ants and how the hive mind decides what to do. I also think it’s interesting that ants – as a super organism – outweigh any other species on earth. That did not stop me from bombing the fuck out of the giant pile of ants in my driveway with Borax however.

Kitten vs Scary thing

oh the power of a good soundtrack

Foolish people taste test all of Michaelangelo’s TMNT pizza recipies
Lot of drunken cursing by the end of this and some rescinding of Michaelangelo as their favorite turtle.

This seems relevant to some people I know. I can’t decide if I like this guy’s particular brand of douchbag comedy. he’s like the funniest down-on-his-luck, dude-brah ad salesman you get suckered into going to happy hour with. A cross between Rodney Dangerfield and Dane Cook. Still, I think this message might apply to some people I know.

Aloe Blacc – I need a dollar

Yeah, i know this is in a commercial, but it’s catchy as hell and i guess this guy got his dollar for royalties.

I need a dollar lyrics
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
And I said I need dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me
Bad times are comin and I reap what I don?t sow
hey hey
Well let me tell you somthin all that glitters ain?t gold
hey hey
It?s been a long old trouble long old troublesome road
And i?m looking for somebody come and help me carry this load
Bridge:
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
Well i don?t know if I?m walking on solid ground
Cause everything around me is falling down
And all I want – is for someone – to help meee
I had a job but the boss man let me go
He said
I?m sorry but I won?t be needing your help no more
I said
please mister boss man I need this job more than you know
But he gave me my last paycheck and he sent me on out the door
Bridge:
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
I said I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
And I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me
Well i don?t know if i?m walking on solid ground
Cause everything around me is crumbling down
And all I want is for someone to help meee

[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/i-need-a-dollar-lyrics-aloe-blacc.html ]

What in the world am I gonna to do tomorrow
is there someone whose dollar that i can borrow
who can help me take away my sorrow
maybe its inside the bottle
maybe its inside the bottle
i had some good old buddy his names is whiskey and wine
hey hey
and for my good old buddy i spent my last dime
hey hey
my wine is good to me it helps me pass the time
and my good old buddy whiskey keeps me warmer than the sunshine
Hey Hey
your mom of mayhem just a child has got his own
Hey Hey
if god has plans for me i hope it aint – written in stone
Hey Hey
because i?ve been working working myself down to the bone
and i swear on grandpas grave i?ll be paid when i come home
Hey Hey
Bridge:
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need hey hey
And if I share with you my story will you share your dollar with me
come on share your dollar with me
go ahead share your dollar with me
come on share your dollar give me your dollar
share your dollar with me
come on share your dollar with me

Inglorious Ponies

The underground internet fandom of the new My Little Ponies series has led to some interesting mashups. The show on it’s own is also pretty good.

The Last Jump of the General Lee

I loved this show as a kid.

Letter People – Meet Mr. T AKA Tall Teeth

In another flashback from my early schooling Mr. T (not the “pity the fool” one) was my JAM for obvious reasons.

Cat vs Piñata

Get those kibbles!

My Dick

Ok. Enough with the kid stuff. Here’s a song about dicks!
