Gravenhurst - Black Holes In The Sand

The La Blogotheque live, a capella version shot in Paris. Give it a chance, there's a bit of a leadin. Pretty guitar work.
And Santino the Musical!

This Hyundai commercial always makes me chuckle. And the treadmill cats get a LOL.

This is one of the strangest concepts for a video I've ever seen, although it starts sedately enough.
posted by Wolfdog 09 September | 18:18
I like this.

nicky that swing dancing vid is fantastic, thank you so much!

even more o_O - my fave clip from my fave snowboarding movie First Descent - Terje kills it on 7601.

lfr, Laird Hamilton is such a fucking stud, (and I don't say that lightly.)
posted by small_ruminant 09 September | 19:10
Although, on second viewing that may not be Laird. I stand by my comment, however.

Apparently the guy in that vid is Mike Parsons.

I know that wild animals, by and large, make bad pets... but OMGSOCUTE.

In the realm of o_O : some costume designer is going to hell for creating post-apocalyptic chainmail Aaron Carter. Found while clicking through Related Videos from this thread.

Wolfdog, that is such a bizarrely interesting video. It made me see how eating and a sense of loss are so connected for females.

lonefrontranger, so pleased you liked those guys dancing, that Terje clip is *incredible*. omg omg omg, holy shit, omg. That was one of the most incredible things I ever saw, evar. It's right there with Laird Hamilton and the big wave guys, but maybe even more unthinkable. Who *is* this Terje guy? Had to Wikipedia him. What a rush.

Here are some short pieces of music that Philip Glass did for Sesame Street.

Or, since there seems to be a bit of an athletic theme, here's bicycle trials rider Ryan Leech.

(If you like watching Leech ride trials, you might also enjoy Aaron Ross' street bmx riding.)

The Green Monkey Story. (Stick with it.) Followed by A Love Song For Bobby Long. My friend Grayson.

I think I saw this here on metachat. I love it - Eddie Izzard Darth Vader Death Star Canteen Leggos.

To tell the truth, nicky, my simple little doggy-brain mostly just thinks "god damn, she makes that table look delicious."

oooh box, loved the Aaron Ross' street bmx riding and the music too. Thanks.

And octothorpe I love that Busby Berkeley style motorcycle thing. wow.

rainbaby I love E. Izzard. octothorpe, that is the coolest thing ever!

krix that 'an eye for Annai' is one of the most interesting animations I've seen in some time.

thanks box! Ryan Leech and some of his Norco teammates put on a stage show for us at the Boulder Theatre last fall before the premiere of Seasons (full-length feature on freeriding / slopestyle MTB).

Here's a clip from the 2nd Seasons movie. In fact about midway thru (4.00 or so) I recognise the trails as ones I've raced on myself at the Keystone ski resort. I guarantee I was going about a tenth the speed and I don't know that my wheels much left the ground (plus I was on a hardtail, so... yeah). The thing that impresses me the most is that these guys are hucking on monster 40+ lb. freeride bikes, and making it look easy. It isn't, I can tell you. I've ridden big hit bikes myself and they're about as easy to maneuver as a charging rhino, what with all the weight, long travel and steering dampening going on.

Wow, that motorcylce thing is way cool, octothorpe.

I'm late to the thread, but these Deven Green videos have been cracking me up. She takes old videos of 80s soap star Brenda Dickson and records new voiceovers.
posted by peep 10 September | 17:48
whoa lfr, that Downhill Freeride is awesome, what an energy buzz watching it. Whoo hoo!!!

Ok, adding to the joy. The the charleston to daft punk.

Ooh! look at that Charleston! I don't get how they can balance so well - it's such a partnered dance. I fall over when I try without a partner. I am also far less graceful. And my shoes occasionally fall off.
