It's another in the sequence of the Sony-battery-goes-critical videos. No idea as to when it was taken so it may be quite old. (Via Gizmodo) more »

"Look Around You" on the brain

02/04/08 | by Adam | Categories: YouTube
This is perhaps the best send-up I've seen of the Open University type programs that seemed to dominate BBC 2 during the day throughout the 70's and 80's. Of course, if you didn't grow up in the UK during that period, this is going to be nigh on… more »

"I Am Murloc" from Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain. Someone must have access to a pretty good Warcraft engine in order to create that video... (Via Ricardo) (Official Blizzard version can be found here) more »

The infamous Hitler video repurposed once again... (Via BoingBoing) more »

The Muppets do their creators

01/13/08 | by Adam | Categories: YouTube
"To Morrow" as sung by muppets in the shape of the muppet creators, Jim Henson, Frank Oz, and Jerry Nelson. It's darn witty song. (Via Nodwick) more »

Pedal-powered car pulled over

12/27/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly, YouTube
Funny video about a stripped 1986 Buick Regal, converted into a pedal-car, taking its first road test. The Toronto police were somewhat less than enthused about it. (Via BoingBoing) more »

Merry Christmas!

A Merry Christmas to you all; now go back to sleep. (If you're reading this a bit later, leave the computer alone for a bit and go and chat with your family!) Oh, yeah, and here's another YouTube video that's doing the rounds. more »

Thai Pop-up Market

12/22/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly, YouTube
This has to be seen to be believed. Anyone who's travelled through poorer countries knows that railroads tend to be centres of commerce due to the good access of maintained track. I've never seen a market built around the in-use tracks before... (Via… more »

The original "Star Wars" opening sequence

12/19/07 | by Adam | Categories: YouTube
The original opening sequence for "Star Wars" makes for an interesting piece of arcana, but I agree with Kottke: it didn't deserve to make the final cut. (Via Kottke) more »

General Synod's "Life of Christ"

I've not seen this "Not The Nine O'Clock News" skit in quite some time. Get it while it's still on YouTube! (Via Pharyungula) more »

Smart Car collision test

12/08/07 | by Adam | Categories: YouTube
One common comment I've heard questioning the survivability of the small Smart Car is whether anyone in it could live through a head-on collision. The video from a British motoring show appears to suggest that yes, you would. Even so, I certainly… more »

iPod packaging by Microsoft

12/03/07 | by Adam | Categories: YouTube
Another golden oldie I hadn't seen for a while. This one has the dubious distinction of actually being an inhouse Microsoft effort, although to their credit it was put together as an example of what not to do. more »

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
