Second

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The Beauty Of A Second short film contest is a great idea - what can you get across in a video that lasts a single second?



Stop-motion

Two great videos here, firstly from the excellent Fleet Foxes:




and then a totally epic 'history of the world':


Projection

Here's a great video of Saks Fifth Avenue's 3-D holiday window projection. 


Procrastination

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
That work can wait for a couple of minutes surely - just watch this one Youtube clip about procrastination and then you can get on with work...


Ice

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
This is a fantastic video from the BBC, an eerie finger of ice plunges into the depths and begins to affect the local fauna...


Robot

These inflatable robots are somewhat ungainly, but pretty cool nonetheless:


Talent

British talent shows have nothing on Indian television!


Parasite

Microscopic

A great little film all about the microscopic life that abounds all around us.  You'll never look at a glass of water the same way again!

Snoring

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
File this under 'amazing Japanese inventions' - its a kind of pillow-type thing which can sense when you're going to snore and tickles you so that you turn over.  So many marriages to be saved!


Bride

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
In the Kosovan village of Lubinje there is a tradition of dressing and making up a bride for her wedding day in order to ward off the evil eye.  It's quite an amazing piece of art...

Ever wondered what a woman's brain looks like when she has an orgasm?  No, of course not, but this is it, anyway:


Rosa

Can you believe that this short sci-fi video was made by a young comic-artist in a single year with no budget.  Apparently it's now in development as a movie in Hollywood.  Great stuff...

Scarf

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
QI's sister radio show, is an imaginary museum in which our guests can put anything that they find to be Quite Interesting.  When Sean Lock appeared, he gave us the "Sean Lock Scarf Knot" which he felt had just appeared from nowhere a couple of years ago.  Well, here is a Youtube clip with 25 different ways of wearing a scarf, including the Sean Lock Scarf Knot, which they call the European Loop...


Astronauts

Always so graceful on the moon, right?  Well, no.  This is what You've Been Framed would look like if it were set in low-gravity:


Galaxy

What does it look like when two galaxies collide?  With the right soundtrack, it's something quite beautiful.


Starlings

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Have we posted a video of flocking starlings before?  Well even if we have, we're not apologising for this one - absolutely stunning:


Fireworks

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Remember remember the 5th of November last weekend?  The people of Oban certainly won't forget their bonfire night for a while - due to a technical error, their entire 30 minute firework display went off in less than 60 seconds:


Animation

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Two great animations here - firstly a great advert for Tempo tissues:

Both found at the excellent Presurfer

Playing Radiohead on an instrument made from lettuce?  Only on Youtube...


Parkour

Parkour, or free-running, is extremely Youtube-genic, this National Parkour Summit even moreso:

This is what discotheques all sound like all the time when you turn 30.



Movember

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Are you growing your moustache for Movember?  Either way, facial hair is big news at the moment, so what better time to post this sketch?
