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!

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.
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
Zooey’s “brother” is just as insipid and ridiculous as his sister. Look out the window and see if it’s raining. Make your own damned tomato soup!
How to survive a robot uprising
I’m not so concerned about zombies because those are fictitious, but a robot uprising seems like it COULD be a very real concern in the not-so-distant future. Some good tips here.
The Making of Tomorrow Never Knows
This was one of my first favorite Beatles songs. I used to listen to it in headphones while I cut the grass. Funny it was named after one of Ringo’s malapropisms.
The first accurate atomic clock
A film produced by the NPL Film Unit in the 1950s explaining the principles behind the first accurate atomic clock, designed by Louis Essen and built at the National Physical Laboratory in 1955.
I Know That Voice – Trailer
The men and women behind your favorite animated characters tell all in this documentary that had better come out on Netflix. I love seeing the behind the scenes for this sort of stuff. ” This is a must see documentary for anyone that wants to know what goes on behind the scenes in your favorite cartoons, animations, and anything to do with voice acting”
I wish I had the skills and patience to build these sort of things, but I have big dumb clumsy hands. I’ll study these for when I make my homemade pinball machine though.
All the jumps from Dukes of Hazzard
The title says it all. It’s like every episode was just an excuse to throw this car off a ramp.
The Hubos perform Come Together
Jonah and I were listening to Kraftwerk the other day and he came up to me a day or so later and asked to hear the robots again. So I tried to play him some more Kraftwerk and he got agitated and kept pulling out our copy of Abbey Roads and talking about Come Together (one of his favorites). I couldn’t figure out what he wanted to listen because he kept talking about robots playing the Beatles song. After some extensive questioning, I finally remembered THIS video which we watched like a MONTH ago. That kid has a crazy memory.
Speaking of Jonah, this kid is the same age as he is, but damn if he doesn’t kick some ass. He’s better than me anyway. Jonah could probably get this good if he had a ramp in his room, too.
