Been lagging in the posting thing lately. Here are some links I’ve saved up for a while; unfortunately I’ve forgotten where I found most of them. A good majority come from Digg or Reddit, but others come from other web sites.
- Danger Seekers, a fun sort-of-cyberpunky rage against the establishment animated music video with a catchy tune.
- A collection of squirrels.
- Appropriate to the apprehension that comes with a down economy, an article about how fear can impair proper decision making — so do your best to recognize and minimize the fear, where possible.
- A perhaps more appropriate title of one of the O’Reilly book pictures.
- Music from Videosift: Impressive Balalaika playing (I had to look it up too) and the 1967 tune that appears to have been the inspiration for the Futurama theme music. Very catchy.
- A non-warning sign.
- An appropriate use of a Bob Ross picture.
- The Royal Society of Chemistry recreated the gruel from Oliver Twist, and served it up in a city square.
- A trucking duck! Very sweet.
- The T-Mobile Dance, the public’s reaction to the T-Mobile Dance, and the night rehearsal for the T-Mobile Dance. Like an Improv Everywhere gig but for a commercial.
More soon. But for tonight’s video: as you can see from the next few posts, we’ve recently discovered Bill Bailey — extraordinary musician, comedian, and overall smart guy (who attracts nutters). We recently got Bill Bailey’s standup DVDs and relished them; he’s great at standup, did a hilarious TV show for the BBC (that he posted on YouTube), and did a great collaboration with an Indian band for an encore. He’s also a regular on Never Mind the Buzzcocks and QI.
Anyway — enough gushing. Once they start in you’ll recognize the tune, done in a spectacularly different way.
