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!

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

Full Circle from Callum Cooper on Vimeo.

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.

Somebody painted a peen on our fence (it wasn’t me)!

Grandparents discover Photobooth

What is a leap year

A detailed explanation of the minutia of our planets rotations and orbits and the limitations of our current calendar. Makes me wonder what time it is on the moon. EDIT: apparently

Story from North America

Awesomely weird animation from Garrett Davis and Kirsten Lepore. Fascinating song too.

Never-wet Spray

As some of the commentors asked: how do you wash it off? and if you coated yourself in it, would you sink to the bottom of the ocean?

My favorite Looney Tune gag

They’s done this a number of times. The original was in one of the war films they don’t show anymore. See also, Coyote v. Roadrunner and Daffy v. Bugs. Each with slight variations of the same premise. It’s always

Twas The Night Before Christmas in Celebrity Voices by Jim Meskimen

Some great impressions… many very understated and accurate. There are a few misses, but when he hits he really hits. His Alan Rickman is great!

Snow shovel the video game

Well executed. I really didn’t think I was going to watch this whole thing, but I they kept it interesting and I stuck it out to the end. I like the chiptune Black Sabbath in the beginning.

Big Dog Exercise Wheel

As the jabbering ladies in the background also speculate, they should indeed hook that thing up to an electrical generator.

ABCs of Cinema

ABCinema from Evan Seitz on Vimeo.

Lovely animation of soundclips and allusions to 26 films A-Z. Can you name them all? I couldn’t.

Wes Anderson – From Above

A supercut tribute To Wes Anderson’s signature shot.
