There’s a lot of condescension in people’s appreciation of this video of an Indian lady doing her well-rehearsed rendition of Queen’s We Will Rock You but I honestly find it quite beautiful.

By Gerry Mak in New Events on Thursday 6 May 2010

Selectism just posted a bunch of videos of noted film-maker Werner Herzog reading children’s classics. It’s not actually Herzog, but the person doing these does a fairly good impression, and I imagine it wouldn’t be difficult to convince the real Bavarian director to do it for real.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 23 April 2010

Damn, well made viral videos are fun. Especially when they’ve haven’t gone ‘bang’ yet. This effort places the mighty Iron Man into a rather intimate scene with the late Patrick Swayze as the two of them fulfill their obvious rust … whoops … lust for each other and get all Dirty Dancin’ on us.

Liquid Mountaineering: running on water

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Monday 19 April 2010

Liquid Mountaineering is a new sport involving, wait for it, walking on water. Or to be more precise: running on water. The ‘sport’ is being developed from scratch after the founders discovered by accident that, with the right water repellent equipment, you could run across bodies of water, like a stone skimming the water.

Broken Clothing: bizarre Japanese video

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Saturday 10 April 2010

Leave it to clever Japanese pranksters to come up with something this outrageous and ridiculous. But it’s all done in a very funny and off-handed (off clothing?) way. We love it. How could you not?

Kira Heuer Reader Find

By Kira Heuer in Video on Monday 8 February 2010

Remember how, as a kid, teachers created an atmosphere of FUN as the best way to learn? It was an inspired place for imagination and support. Hmmm, well it seems adults get the short end of the stick, playing only a game of ‘serious’ and ‘responsibility’. So when I came across this video, it was […]

So it’s an oldie, but damn, it’s still a goodie. And in these tough times, well, it’s kinda nice to laugh at someone else’s obsessions. If only for 6 minutes and 49 seconds.
