Luke’s Change

A well done parody of the 9-11 conspiracy video Loose Change, claiming that the destruction of the original Death Star was an inside job. I’d believe it!

All the alternate endings to the Animaniacs theme

Jonah has discovered the Animaniacs. I never watched it regularly but Corey was a big fan. Here are the variant from the theme song.

Totaka’s Song

A video explaining a secret Easter Egg tune hidden in a bunch of Nintendo games. Have you ever heard it?

Soulja Boy’s got the Munchies

Soulja Boy has got the munchies and he’s not afraid to show you how he’s gonna deal with it. I like that he’s bought one of everything from the local 7-11, including some Snackwells!

Electric Fence Experiment ends as expected

The title says it all…

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?

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.

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.

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!

More Mitt Band Lip Reading

Tappa Tap it in… it’s a zinger!

Soft Autonomous Indestructible Earthworm Robot!

It’s can’t be stopped!

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

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.

We are all related

Not only would we not be here without a little incest… ok a LOT of incest, but we all share atoms in our bodies at this very moment with Shakespeare and Buddha.

The V Motion Project

The V Motion Project from Assembly on Vimeo.

The Motion Project was a collaboration between a lot of clever creative people working together to create a machine that turns motion into music. Personally, I can’t wait for the guitar hero version of this.

Colin Mochrie plays with Star Wars action figures

Sure you may have a bunch of these packed away MIB in your closet, but crack them open! This is the sort of fun you’re missing out on!

Turntables that make art

Drawing Apparatus from Robert Howsare on Vimeo.

I want enough weird equipment laying around that I can make projects like this. Fun!

Flame Thrower Vs. Wasps

The action starts around the 1:00 mark. OMG!

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!

GTA R2-D2 mod

Artoo goes apeshit on the people of Liberty City. I had no idea he was so well armed!

10 bets you’ll never lose

Better than the 10 practical jokes that won’t get you in trouble… here you might actually make some dough.

A brief history of video games

Less a history and more of a musical mega-mix of sound effects and clips through history.

How high can we build

The pyramids reigned as the highest for almost 4000 years…. then… SPACE ELEVATORS!

The view from a jump rope

To compliment the yo-yo video I posted last week, here’s a dizzying view (and stylish film) from a camera mounted on a jump rope.
