Troy leaves Abed a message

This is me starting every email exchange. Bleh!

James Taylor glitch-rock!

Here’s an accidental glitch-rock version of America the Beautiful by James Taylor at the inauguration.

Shugo Tokumaru – “Katachi”

That’s a lot of die-cut foam core. Holy Cow!

Amazing Sleight Of Hand Magician Yann Frisch

Corey has been reading a book about the science behind sleight of hand and this guy is amazing at it. Our brains are so easily fooled.

Awesome cardboard box cat fortress

Dude builds a massive box fortress for his cat. I’d have made it a little more interesting, but then my cats are entertained by dust motes and bottle caps.

2 Hamsters 1 Wheel

Ziiing! Calamity!

Tandem-Duct Aerial Demonstrator

Please spread this around and help us raise money to get this shop up and running. We’re doing a whole lot and very little and every dollar helps. We’ve got some cool incentives and things for contributors and there’s only 7 days left. Donate here! Thanks!

Fawlty Towers Basil Supercut

OMG I love this show. This and The Young Ones were too short lived for my tastes. Here is a great Supercut of Basil going off his rocker and generally abusing the people around him. John Cleese stated in an interview once that Basil Fawlty was based on an actual inn keeper that the Pythons stayed at one time. He got some great material from it.


Duelity from Ryan Uhrich on Vimeo.

What is science was a religion and religion was a science. See for your self in this beautifully executed thought experiment.

Alan Rickman makes tea in slow motion

I would watch Alan Rickman do anything… even make tea in slow motion for 7 minutes. Stick around for the end and enjoy the Inception soundtrack in the mean time.

Fight Club recut as a love story

Nicely done. Good inclusion of the Meatloaf song. Kudos!

The Art of Glitch

In the 80s I used to “fry” my Atari (switch it on and off until it freaked out) to get cool stripes and sounds. I even used them in a college project years later. Now it’s a full fledged art form and I love every bit of it (pun intended?) I’m planning to make some more of my own once I have a spare moment.


Ball from Everynone on Vimeo.

A rapid cut of round things.

Pac-Man the Movie

PAC-MAN The Movie (The Fan Film) from Steelehouse Productions on Vimeo.

A fan movie about the secret government Pac-Man project. A little cheezy, but well done.

How nerves work

An indepth TED talk about the exact functions of our nerve cells.

Cat plays Super Mario Brothers

Probably the dumbest video I’ve seen on the internet in a while.

John Cleese on Creativity

John Cleese of Monty Python and Fawlty Towers fame delivers a talk about how/where/why the creative process happens and how to harness or squash it depending on your position within a company. 36 minutes of real talk concerning inspiration.

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.

World’s most extreme zip line

Vertical drop of 600 meters over a total distance of 1.8km makes this the world’s steepest, tallest and one of the longest ziplines. Its also one of the fastest with top speeds of upto 140 kmph. This zipline is located on Sarangkot, about 10 km from the beautiful town of Pokhara.

Robot dancing to Cake

I want to go to there.

Robber fly dancing to Dubstep

Speaking of dancing things… even robber flies are not immune to the wubwubwub drop!

Landing on Mars

7 minutes of terror before the signal reaches earth letting us know that the Mars rover has completed a very complicated procedure to land safely on the surface. The dramatic music doesn’t help either. Maybe the scientists should turn it off.

Dungeons and Dragons cartoon if it were an actual D&D adventure

A little long but worth the watch. Pretty good interpretation of the only Dungeons and Dragons episode I actually remember. I want to play again :(

Picture of the Big Bang

Look back in time to the coagulating center of our universe, or CMB and find out how you can help name all the “mountains” and “oceans” therein.

Why McDonald’s burgers look better on the menus

I’m fascinated by the are of food photography, and only slightly deterred by the fact that this is a McDonald’s product. These burgers get less touching up than your average fashion model, so there’s that.

Lead Breakfast (Pulp Fiction Remix)

A catchy remix song from Pulp Fictions produced by POGO.

The programming of Space Invaders in timelapse

Youtube user irrationalistic recorded programming Space Invaders for his Game Tech class. Captivating!
