Remember these?

Well, I do, and they remind me of the following video of pendulum waves, which is really awesome despite the fact that I have no idea what the f pendulum waves are.  All I know is that the video is cool as shit and that it reminds me of those things (above) that grown-ups used to keep on their desks at work, which, incidentally, are called desk pendulums:

This shit is awesome if you like that brand of Onion-type humor and/or appreciate how easy it is to make fun of a sport that we Americans don’t understand:

…no homo though

Considering I haven’t posted on my blog in almost two months, this video has to be pretty awesome….and it is.  The funniest thing about my taking a blog-hiatus is that in my absence I’ve actually managed to see an increase in views from when I actually was posting…maybe that says something about my blogging abilities (or maybe it says something about the people reading it).  I’m not really sure. Regardless, I’ll take my 100,000+ hits* a day whichever way I can.

Moving on, the following video is called “SF to Paris in Two Minutes” and is a time-lapse video put together by someone who took a picture out the window about every two minutes for the entirety of the 11-hour flight from San Francisco to Paris.  The results are stunning and, without ruining it, just make sure you see what he captures around the 1:09 mark; it’s amazing:


Here’s a little bit more on how he made the video, from the photographer’s blog:

Shot a photo roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris CDG to make this airplane time lapse. Made with a 5d2, a time-lapse controller, and a 16mm – 35mm, mixed with some iPhone shots. The music is a modified demo track “Gain” by DETUNE ltd. denkitribe on the Korg iMS20 iPad App. I’m pretty sure the track is copyrighted but it’s My First Synthesizer score so I’m hoping denkitribe is cool with it. Edits and pans in After Effects CS5 and iMovie.

The photos during take-off and landing are all computer models and totally rendered because I would never use an electronic device during times which the FAA prohibits them. I did get lucky and have a whole row to myself to setup the tripod and gear.

The Lonely Island guys are back with their new single and video, this time focusing on “penis-in-vagina” sex, 30-second romp-fests and featuring an Akon hook that sounds exactly as you think it would.  It might not be quite on that “I’m on a Boat” level, or even on the “Jizz in My Pants” level, but, don’t get me wrong, it’s still funny as shit:

In my opinion, though, it will be nearly impossible for anything to ever beat the street classic “Lazy Sunday“:

Just some bomb-ass ATL shit fresh off the cutting-room floor (i.e. 4 days old):

And if you don’t know Donnis, you should.  Listen to or download his best track, “Gone,” and the one above, “Tonight,” below:

Below you can enjoy Souls of Mischief performing their hip-hop classic “93 til Infinity” from a show in Santa Clara this past weekend.  It’s been seventeen years since its release, and the song still hasn’t gotten old to me…

And if for some reason you don’t have this one in your collection, you can download the studio version of “93 til Infinity” right here (right-click then “save as”) or (if you’re not into the whole “piracy” thing) listen to it below:

Right now you probably have no idea who Phil Davison is (unless you’re caught up on your popular interweb videos, in which case this whole thing might be old news to you).  Well, Phil Davison is my hero; watch the following, and you’ll soon know why:

Originally, I had listed my five favorite Phil Davison quotes from his impassioned speech, but in the process of writing my original blog entry, my internet f’d up (obviously it could not have been the fault of my flawless MacBook Pro), and I lost the entire post and now don’t feel like writing it again.  But, suffice it to say, I had some favorites…and I hope you do now too.

By the way…he lost the election.  Stupid Ohio.

Just a tight video (and song) from Wiz Khalifa, whose music I seem to like more and more the more I listen to it.  Here he remixes the Geto Boys’ classic into a Taylor Gang spin-off, turning the whole thing into an Office-Space-reminding/weed-smoking video…which certainly helps his cause in my eyes too:


UPDATE: You can download an .mp3 of the song that I just ripped from the YouTube video right here (right-click then “save as” or whatever).

And the video for Cee-Lo’s hit single has dropped…and it’s pretty awesome; I think kids cursing is awesome, and this video features quite a bit of it:


Cee-Lo Green’s viralFuck You” has finally got a video, and, like the song itself, it’s pretty sweet. (Though we have no idea how they’re going to manipulate it to look like he’s saying “Forget You,”should it ever air on television). In keeping with the song’s sound, the video has a retro vibe going, taking place in a 1950s diner full of Motown styled backup singers. There a young Cee-Lo stand-in (an adorably lackadaisical lip-syncher), a high school age Cee-Lo, and then Cee-Lo himself — in an awesome red-plaid jacket and matching glasses — go tell a “heartbreaker” what she can do.
