I've been watching a lot of these today, and I think this one to Jurassic World is perhaps the best single video. The one for Captain America: Civil War is also quite excellent.

Got this from [livejournal.com profile] jimhines yesterday. Amazing stuff.

No, it's not actually an NFL player, but it's really funny.

Very cool, especially the opening. It's from 2007, so it's David Tennant-era.

Well, it's not really a trailer. There's a group that does YouTube videos called Bad Lip Reading, they did some brilliant ones during the last election cycle. The Rick Perry one is amazing. Well, they just did a five minute movie trailer using material from the first couple of seasons of Game of Thrones. I don't think there's anything from seasons 3 or 4 in it.

I stumbled upon this video, which is really, REALLY, weird.  And quite funny.  Two stuntwomen, plus numerous others, funded making a short movie through IndieGoGo and this is the result:



This is the family Guy clip on which it was based:

They are:
Machine of Death, a short story collection which is nicely illustrate by a video called This is the Way You Die. The Machine of Death takes a quarter, a drop of your blood, and spits out a piece of paper that tells you how you will die. But it's not always as straight forward as the slip saying Old Age. Watch the video.

The Poison Eaters, by Holly Black

I took a class this semester in video editing using Adobe Premiere. I've never seriously shot video or film before, just some casual stuff with my iPhone. This was A LOT of fun! The cameras we used shut full 1080p and produced great results. We had to make a final project that was a 2-4 minute long video, and I've always subscribed to the 'write aboutshoot what you know' school, so I made a documentation about an astronomy program that my wife runs.

This is the final cut for school, it's 10 minutes long. I'm working on a slightly longer cut to submit to the White Sands Film Festival.



And what would a movie be without a blooper reel?



I really hate the fact that YouTube doesn't let you choose your thumbnail.

Big Trouble is, without a doubt, one of the greatest movies ever. If you haven't heard of it, there's a new song by a South Korean pop star called Psy, the song is Gangnam Style, and it's a dance based on riding and roping horses. It's pretty cool, but I'm not going to attempt it.

Well, a VERY talented group of video producers basically duplicated the sets of Big Trouble and filmed an amazing parody of the song, Lo Pan Style. They did a great job of matching the looks of the actors, the costumes, and the sets. And James Hong does a cameo!

It is awesome. I definitely want to capture it as an MP3.

The Lo Pan Style people also made a really good video for Batman 3, it's linked to the end of the Lo Pan vid:

The story behind the video: http://www.wired.com/underwire/2012/10/kernel-panic/


Very funny, huge amounts of profanity, so may not be SFW without headphones.

"Wisconsin Republicans claim that no one else can republish a video of United States Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) complaining about how he is 'struggling' to get by on his $174,000 salary without their permission, even though they originally released the video on YouTube for the whole world to see. Now the GOP is trying to take legal action to stop anyone else from republishing the video. The tape caused a stir for Duffy, a first-term conservative best known for his past as a reality TV show star on MTV's The Real World after Democrats flagged the comments about his taxpayer-funded salary, which is nearly three times the median income in Wisconsin, and criticisms began to flow Duffy's way. Here's a one-minute clip, excerpted from roughly 45 minutes of video of the public Duffy townhall, that the Polk County GOP doesn't want anyone to see."

ROFLMAO!

In short: no one is really sure what would happen. The general consensus is that it probably wouldn't be good.

But here's a post from the Bad Astronomy blog and video that explores the subject! Well, at least the first four minutes explores sticking your hand in the beam, the remainder is on some interesting stuff if you're a science geek.

I have no idea if this will cross-post to FB properly. It's pretty awesome: The Who's Baba O'Reilly played on electronic music devices (including shirts) made by ThinkGeek.

I'm especially impressed as The Who's Who's Next is one of my fav albums, and I just picked up a collection of Who greatest hits from around the time of that album and earlier.
