THOUGHT For The Day: Champagne, By Jim Jarmusch:
THIS is the most accurate toy representation of a real cat ever:
PRANKSTER pranked. No, it’s not fake blood pouring from the nose of the fool who pretended to rob someone using an ATM machine.
The ‘Reckless Youth’ merry pranksters are Sydney’s Daniel Maran, 19, Robert Milazzo and little George Proestos, both 16.
Daniel was playing the victim. He says:
“The reason we made the video was it was a social experiment and what we wanted to try prove was that there are people out there that are going to help in a robbery. Literally in every clip someone came and pulled George off me except in the last clip where it went a bit far. We don’t blame anyone for that, we expected that.’’
Did George expect that?
MEANWHILE in Broughty Ferry, Dundee, a dog is waiting in a car:
THIS is a protest against anti-homphobia from the Republic of Telly. (Language is NSFW – and very good.)
BEN Mallaby’s video looks at the future of anti-social drunks, fighters and pukers in the age of time-travel. Timeholes is time travel for Stag and Hen do over-indulgers in 2015.
The Aphex Twin soundtrack makes it rock.
FINDING the Sochi Winter Olympics a bit dull? What about if cats are added?
EVGENI Plushenko’s Pony Bomb Routine has been remixed to Ginuwine’s Pony. It is unforgettable:
While sitting on his dad’s lap, this happy 16-month-old boy has his eyes glued to the screen, quietly watching Man of Steel. When Superman takes first takes flight in the film, this little guy gets really excited and adorably emulates his hero by throwing his arms up in the air.
HOME Movies. Not the sort you record on your smart phone and show off to strangers in Facebook. We’re talking about those 8mm home movies filmed on clunky, whirring cameras. YouTuber Lance R has compiled some old homemade films into Scary Home Movies.
The story is that where I used to work, we did home movie transfers. After the film transfer, we would add classical music to the videotape. For this particular one, we only listened to the beginning of the CD, and didn’t realize that later in the album the music turned…shall we say, a bit “dark.” The combination of the music and the film content made for a very interesting result. Needless to say, the customers came back in and demanded to know if we thought this was “funny.” I don’t know if they believed us when we said it truly was just an unfortunate accident.
Moments of note:
GYMNASTICS loosens you up. Vimeo agent GHOST+COW FILMS taps my shoulder with the stinky fingers of adolescence with his tribute to blowing off.
You start waiting for the next thunder cracker. When it comes, it’s all the better:
YOU Tuber Feilim Mchugh told his father he’d failed his driving test. He then filmed the reaction. her father’s reaction driving test. The videos - “My Dads reaction to me ‘failing’ my driving test, priceless…” is terrific.
Filmed in Drumkeerin, Ireland, swearing is liberal:
WHAT face do you pull when the train pulls into the station? One surprise looking at Adam Magyar’s super slo-mo films (50 frames per second; one 12 second moment spans to 8 minutes of film) of faces on the platform is how few people eat on trains in Tokyo, New York and Berlin. Also, no sly looks to the left and right to study the competition for seats and space?
THIS is a delightful video of a nine-year-old taking his first ski jump. Boy, it’s high. The ice is slippery. And the audio makes the video great. If Disney made ski jumps…
OTTO the Pig says ‘Christmas’… (How he hates Ludwig the turkey)…
Don’t panic. Otto. The family aren’t coming:
HILARY Barraford (actor/model/blonde) has produced this comic shot What’s Up With Your Friend?
Hilary is the cast as the fun friend. She might not be acting:
HOW To Wrap A Cat For Christmas.
CHRISTMAS Tree of the day is this one made from detonation cord. Flick the switch and ka-boom. Look at that fairy go:
CY Kuckenbaker filmed a 4-minute shot from the Washington Street bridge above State Route 163 in San Diego at 2:39pm Oct 1, 2013. “My aim is to reveal the colour palette and colour preferences of contemporary San Diego drivers in addition to traffic patterns and volumes,” he says. “There are no CG elements, these are all real cars that have been removed from one sample and reorganized.”
SING along but not at work, where it is not safe.
