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.
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!

We’re still pushing for donations for Riverside Art and Supply Co. Please consider donating and cashing in on some of the great incentives we have available. Every little bit helps and we’ve got a long way to go to get this thing up and running. Thanks!
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.
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
Holy cow! The path is so narrow and then throw in steps and gaps and dogs and spectators, cripes! I want this to be a video game.
Journey for the PS3
This looks like the most intriguing game I’ve seen come up for the PS3. There are no monsters to fight, no (initially anyway) objectives to solve, just you and a desert and ancient ruins. So elegant and beautiful. I like seeing game designers put down the first person gun an explore something new.
Skeletor’s Greatest Insults
Skeletor lets loose on his minions and takes them down a peg or six. I’d forgotten how much the Monarch from Venture Brothers is based on Skeletor’s buzzsaw voice and ineptitude.
Awesome Rube Goldberg Machine
Audri is 7. He was inspired to make this video after seeing OK GO’s This Too Shall Pass. This kid is awesome!
Star Wars Uncut
And because I wanted to save it here for posterity, here’s the Star Wars film chopped up into 15 second slices and reshot by random people. So cool!
This reinterpretation lacks the meditation and patience of the Koyaanisqatsi, but works as an interesting study in time-lapse. Watch the original!
Purple and Brown nickelodeon bumps
I showed a few of these to Jonah the other day when we were playing with Play-Doh and he really enjoyed them. Some of them are a little on the gross side, but I like their laid-back chuckling demeanor.
