The musical theme of Star Wars has become a defining classic amongst the world of music. I’d be surprised of any one person heard the music and did not know where it was from.
Then there are flash-mobs. Groups of people that come together, from seemingly out of nowhere, and dazzle the citizens in the area. I’ve seen (on TV) some pretty cool stuff, though I have yet to see one in person.
Now, pull those two together, the music from Star Wars and the idea of a flash mob, and I present to you, a flash orchestra!!!
I’d bet that was a pretty cool surprise to get caught in the middle of.
Incredible YouTube video of animal/human interaction.
First let me say that when people dismiss dogs, cats or other creatures as just animals, it pi**** me off. After having different pets in my life, I find it hard to believe they don’t have some form of intelligence.
Animals may be different and don’t have opposing thumbs but they’re not dumb. My grandmother had a cat that walked from Rhode Island to the house in Maine to hang with us. My dog knew when it was a weekday, versus a weekend. (RIP girl! She passed a few weeks ago.) I had a cat that was so smart, it freaked even me out.
After having seen things, well, like I said, some folks just don’t understand.
And below is an incredible video from YouTube that just awe-inspired me. There’s a girl and her father in a canoe “off of Fraser Island” and they have an encounter with two whales that is just amazing to watch. It’s beautiful actually.
And the reason I started off this piece talking about how animals are just not animals is the fact that these whales, for all their tonnage, barely disturb the water as they float around and under the boat. They’re as gentle as can be, as if they know how fragile humans can be
Watch this amazing YouTube Whale Video.
(There’s a little bit of language because the daughter is a bit nervous. I’m not sure what I’d be. Sitting here on the couch, I’d like to think I’d get in the water with them. But then again, the last time I was snorkeling and saw a huge whale tail fifty feet under me plowing through the kelp bed, I sort of made like a power boat for the shore. So I get her excitement!)
Talk about a flashback! Check out this 1963 TV ad comparing a Chevrolet Impala versus a Ford Galaxie. These are how ads were done in the day… serious, somber, informative. (Sounding) I think you’ll love this… (Thanks to Larry R. for the YouTube pointer) – And after Larry pointed me to that one, there were [...]
Over on YouTube there’s this account called ScreenJunkies. What I know of them are from some humorous movie trailer parodies. But they could tread a fine line, depending on either how you like a movie or how much you can appreciate the snarky skills used to create these trailers. They get better with the latter [...]
This is pretty cool YouTube video where a father and his son put together a mini space missions and send the kid’s toy train into space. But with a little ingenuity, they not only recorded the trip, but were able to recover the data and share it with us! The video was a five month [...]
I was tooling around YouTube looking for something else and I found myself distracted by a few videos that captured my imagination… mostly my imagination of skewed logic and how could they!!! Most of these vids, I don’t think I could have stood there and not ducked. These are some crazy flyovers that are fun [...]
Yes, you read right… After The Avengers, the man himself, Joss Whedon went on to star in Scary Smash, a production by Felicia Day that’s directed by Daniel Strange. (It must really be strange to direct Joss Whedon!) This latest project that Joss Whedon stars in, Scary Smash, is about a giant monster that kills [...]
