Douglas Adams explains the e-reader in a message to his publishers in 1993.
I’ve always thought that a snarkier, more-interactive version of Wikipedia is a pretty good incarnation of the Hitchhikers Guide.
From Love to Bingo
A short film made entirely of Getty stock photos. Well done.
The Sounds of Aronofsky
A supermix of quick cut sound effects from Aronofsky’s movies. I just finished watching Pi the other day. What a great movie.
Bottle cap blues
A part of for Adam Young’s solo Art Show at Common House Gallery entitled: Songs of the Early Riser. Some of these attempts end better than others.
Epic Slinky on a treadmill
I kept putting off watching this but when I finally got around to it I stayed on for the entire thing. The music is perfect and that intrepid, undaunted Slinky just keeps going and going… forever marching to its destiny. You go little Slinky!
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.
Hello and welcome back to the Friday Five! You’d think I’d have a bunch of stuff stock piled, but I only got reconnected to the internet last week and now that I’m working from home, I spend a lot less time dicking around on the internet. I’ll settle into a new groove though. In the mean time, here’s 4 videos to keep you entertained.
We’ve been watching the ’67 Spider-man cartoons on Netflix recently and it reminded me of watching the Flash Gordon cartoon with my dad as a kid. I think it came on super early and the weird creatures scared me (I can’t have been more than 5 or 6 when it originally aired), but I still remember being really into it.
Strap a camera to your head, your board, both arms and both legs and get skating. I particularly like the under the board cam during the kick flips.

Insane free climbing
This gave me instant sweaty hands, but I draw inspiration from the fact that this guy can just turn off his brain and do what he wants without fear.
Instant horror soundtrack. My friend Stevo brought one of these over one day and it was super cool!
