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.

Losing My Religion in Major Scale

Major Scaled #2 : REM – “Recovering My Religion” from major scaled on Vimeo.

R.E.M.’s hit is normally in A minor. Not any more.

A great super cut of a signature Kubrick shot.

Slow motion water balloons

Exactly what the title says. Captivating!

Cyril Takayama cigarette magic tricks

Superb prestidigitation!


With actual in-game time travel capabilities.

Spray duster prank

Some dudes shooting empty air cans at the wall to try to “remove” the paint. At least that’s what they’re telling the police.

The Secret City of London

Who knew? Not I! Thanks internet.

Dollar Store Magician showdown

Two teams of magicians have an hour to produce a series of tricks using props from the dollar store. It’s interesting to watch how they come up with their tricks.

I had this as a kid and LOVED it. Maybe I’ll find one of these at a flea market or yard sale someday and reclaim my childhood.

Daisy Fuentes in slo-motion

The title says it all.

This song has been making the rounds. It’s nice to see PBS doing some nice promotional work these days. Way to “get” the internet guys!

Superbrothers: Swords & Sworcery

Audience Calibration Procedure from Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery on Vimeo.

This looks amazing. I love the 8-bit style but they’re really bringing something new to it too. Look for more around the vernal equinox.

Nostromo – Binary Overdrive

Not sure what this is from, but it’s gorgeous. Not so into the song but the animation is amazing. Thanks Wattana for the tip!


Hey, it’s those little wheelie things from the comic B.C. For the low low price of $1500 you can have this truncated segway that’s far more portable (if maybe a little less comfortable to ride).

Harpo Marx vs. Milton Berle

That Harpo is a talented guy. Note the Kraft Kitchens plug at the very end!

Lance Burton Magic

I’m a sucker for sleight of hand and this routine is amazing.
