Video

Video is the slightly edgier brother of film. He has a better sense of humour and fun but he doesn’t stick around for long. For that reason we need to always be watching to bring you the freshest, funniest, coolest, most unbelievable and most astounding videos – the type that spread like a bad case of swine flu.

Stuck at the airport overnight? Most people’s idea of a nightmare. But Richard Dunn decided he could make the best of it, and put together a video. An amazing video. You see, Las Vegas McCarran International Airport shuts down overnight. There are no flights, and no people in the airport in the middle of the night. So what’s a guy to do?

You probably thought that was made with CGI and all sorts of movie magic. Wrong! Turns out it was all done in one take. Check out the video below.

Operating Manual to Space Ship Earth

James Hancock Reader Find

By James Hancock in Video on Wednesday 11 June 2014

I love Buckminster Fuller’s ‘Operating Manual to Space Ship Earth. Fuller is not technically an architect but I really dig his overarching way of thinking about things. There seems to be a groundswell of popular interest in this way of thinking about philosophy/design/politics/urban planning that is super exciting. Maybe it’s got something to do with […]

Zolton Editor

Yes, there really is something to be said about wakeskating through an enormous lake of cranberries. This video is mesmerising, shot in the dramatic surrounds of Wisconsin’s Manitowish Waters, where the berries ripen on the vine and are then flooded with water from a nearby reservoir.

The automatic tie tying machine is here

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Video on Saturday 7 June 2014

It’s amazing what people lend their talents to. If you’re into robotics your first major project has got to be inventing a machine that ties a tie, right? Well, no judgement here. There’s a lot of businessmen out there who need their ties tied. And some won’t even bother to learn. It always helps to have gone to a private school to know these things, but if you’re not one of the “lucky” (I use the term very loosely) ones to have attended a private school with a strict tie policy, have no fear.

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in Video on Friday 6 June 2014

If you’ve seen the latest Game of Thrones’ episode, ‘The Red Viper vs The Mountain’, chances are you’re still barfing/in denial from seeing the eye popping end of our beloved Oberyn Martell. But thanks to the internet, we get to see the alternate ending we all want. Now we can all pretend that the George R.R. Martin ending didn’t happen and we can move on with our lives – at least until the next episode, that is.

Just breathtaking. That’s about all we can say about this short video by Terjes shot atop El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain (3,718 metres) over 7 days between April 4th and 11th, 2011. It gives you a frontrow seat to some stunning nightly activity, awash with colour, light and action.

Someone stuck a GoPro inside a dishwasher: we promise you’ll never be curious again

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Thursday 5 June 2014

Question: where hasn’t a GoPro been lately? What, between falling into pig pens, flying with baby pelicans, and capturing plane crashes … from inside the plane … it would seem there is no frontier left to conquer. Until now.

Naaw, all this shark wants is a cuddle at the bottom of the sea

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Video on Monday 2 June 2014

Ok, so she maybe a professional shark handler, but still, Cristina Zenato really does seem to have the magic touch. Watch this video to see her in the Bahamas, with a Caribbean reef shark at her side. No Jaws-like scenarios here. The shark just stays by Zenato’s side and allows her to pat it just […]

We’re a hardened bunch in the Lost At E Minor office (ok, ok, granted, we do run the odd cute animal post every now and then), but even we were deeply moved when watching this video about Melvin, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and his heartfelt determination to buy a bunch of roses for his beautiful wife Doris, who has taken care of him for him for so many years.

Watch what happens when these women see their own vaginas for the first time!

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 30 May 2014

For any number of reasons, ranging from a too large stomach (her words, not ours), and a long standing desire to be a nun (huh?!), these women have literally never seen their own vaginas. Never! So, of course, YouTube sensation DaveyWavey decided to, erm, introduce them to it. In the nicest possible way. The results were pretty fascinating (and amusing) to see, as this video below reveals.
