Foreigner – Juke Box Hero

While Corey was away at the Cursive show, Jonah and I rocked out to Foreigner. This song is pretty much flawless.

The Secret City of London

Who knew? Not I! Thanks internet.

Dollar Store Magician showdown

Two teams of magicians have an hour to produce a series of tricks using props from the dollar store. It’s interesting to watch how they come up with their tricks.

Dukes of Hazzard Barnbuster playset

I had this as a kid and LOVED it. Maybe I’ll find one of these at a flea market or yard sale someday and reclaim my childhood.

Daisy Fuentes in slo-motion

The title says it all.

Happy Little Trees Bob Ross Super Cut Remix

This song has been making the rounds. It’s nice to see PBS doing some nice promotional work these days. Way to “get” the internet guys!

#Soos #fanart #gravityfalls


Here’s a quick sketch I did of Soos one of the Mystery Shack’s faithful employees in Gravity Falls. I love this show and it’s one of the few I look forward to every week. New episode tonight! Yeah!

Here’s a clip of Soos getting bedazzled from the show.

You’re all fired!

Kinetic Rain

“Kinetic Rain” Changi Airport Singapore from ART+COM on Vimeo.

Located in the Changi Airport in Singapore. Simple concept and elegant execution.

The origins of Electric Vocabulary

Why are the words surrounding electricity the way they are. Who is responsible. I demand answers and here they are.

This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the Both of Us

A long-time-ago-esque animation set to a saloon piano version of the Sparks song. Nice fluid animation!

Nic Cage Losing his Shit

A super-cut of intense Nic Cage moments from his various filmography. If there’s one thing that guy does well it’s lose his shit. I especially like the part where he’s dressed in a bear suit and punches a lady from the Wicker Man.

MC Frontalot raps about toilet paper

A catchy little ditty that required a couple listens to get all the clever rhymes. I guess Sesame Street is trying for the Gabba crowd?

Skippy the rock skipping robot

Look at it, resting so peacefully by the lake skipping stones. I suddenly don’t feel so worried about the robot uprising… until someone loads this thing up with throwing stars.

Slit-scan video effects

I love this effect. See also the “time dilation” in related videos. It’s one of my favorites.

A date with a virtual girl in augmented reality

Go for a walk in the park with a girl only you can see. It can’t look any weirder than people talking on their hands-free devices. I’m not sure why the first thing this guy does is bop Hatsune Miku on the head, but I think it’d be funny if he kept it up and her virtual ass walked right out the door and ended the program.

Are We Not Men: DEVO documentary trailer

Official DEVO Documentary: 5-minute Preview from DEVOfilm on Vimeo.

An authorized and official full-length DEVO documentary which has already made its Kickstarter goal, but there’s lots of goodies for donors, so get on board. I can’t wait for this!

Matchstick Rockets

Project: Match Rockets from Grathio Labs on Vimeo.

Good instructions on how to burn your fingertips repeatedly make rockets out of matchsticks. If i didn’t think that this would inspire my son to burn down our house, I’d make some with him.

Trololo kid

This kid does a hilarious job lip-syncing to the Trololo song.

Dubstep robots get into a dispute

Dubstep Dispute from Fluxel Media on Vimeo.

and why not, the one robot keeps fucking up their order. I’d be all wubwubwub too!

Two drums and a cymbal fall off a cliff

Mythbusters beware… these guys are busting some srs bizness

Cotton candy pro

this guy has got to be making some bank on the boardwalk. Props!

Top Three Thursday – Movie Theater Pre-roll

Filed under: Movie Trailer,top three thursday — Tod @ 1:43 pm

Somehow the discussion last night turned to old pre-movie policy bumps… you know the old, “no talking, no smoking, pick up your trash” things. It’s been a long time since I’ve gone to see movies on a regular basis, but I remember joking around to these back in the day.

Regal Cinema Snack Coaster

Man, that popping popcorn just before the last hill always gets me!

General Cinema Space Candy

My god… it’s full of Gummy Bears!

Byrd Theater Litter Trailer

This is for all my old Richmond peeps…. ah the memories.
