Meteor over Russia

Looks like some pieces and parts from that “near miss” are getting a little close. Eeesh!

10 more bets you can’t lose

That is unless you count getting punched in the face losing. :(

Projecting video on a snow storm

Amazing and beautiful (despite the fact that it’s video from that new pile The Lorax)

A talking piano

Kind of… but it’s pretty close and the voice is sort of spooky. I would use this in a sound project for “alien translation” or “spooky demon voice”

Vending Machine FAIL

These guys thought they had it all figured out… nope!

Deadmau5 playing with a circuit bent Speak N Spell

It’s weird to see him without his helmet on. Also, I really want to learn how to circuit bend things. I’ve got a stock pile of potentially annoying electronics to tamper with. Now to learn to solder.

Joel McHale and Jimmy Fallon play Egg Russian Roulette

This looks like a lot of fun. Who wants to play?

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.

Happy New Year everyone! Back to the Friday Fives! Enjoy!

Squirrel wrecks a kitchen and then escapes like a BOSS!

This happened to me once. I woke up to find a squirrel staring at me from across the room and then a chased it around the house with a broom until I locked him in the stairwell. Animal control came to remove it and it sounded like fucking LOONEY TUNES in there with all the crashing and banging and screaming. Good times.

IMDB’s top 250 in 2 1/2 minutes

Brilliantly edited. How many do you recognize? Music is a mashup of Joan Jett, The Beatles, House of Pain and Cypress Hill by DJ FAROFF.

“Sexy” pranks from Just For Laughs

I love a well executed and non-cruel pranks. These had me cracking up.

Penguin takes a fall and makes the best sound ever

Assuming this isn’t fake, the reaction sound of surprise and resignation between the group and the individual are surprisingly human.

Brian Williams takes Zooey and Siri down a peg

…and just declares the day a total loss.

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.

Superb prestidigitation!


With actual in-game time travel capabilities.

Spray duster prank

Some dudes shooting empty air cans at the wall to try to “remove” the paint. At least that’s what they’re telling the police.

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.

Horse Taking it to the Limit

A new GTA mod allows you to cause mayhem and destruction as a horse driving a car. The final wreck in the video is hilarious and the song will get stuck in your head.

The evolution of 8-bit art

Another PBS off the book short. These guys have really ramped up their relevance to their core audience. Well done!

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.

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!
