Eyewitness news, backin it up.

September 20, 2010

It’s all going on in Kansas City. Firstly this woman appears on some low-rent news station giving an oscar winning performance for her eyewitness report. Then someone takes it, gives it the vocoder effect and hey presto a genuine chart classic. Nice.

Skateistan

September 19, 2010

Every day I seem to read more and more about these guys and what they are up to. So I thought I would add to the noise and write a post about em.

In case you don’t know who or what Skateistan is. Founded in 2008 in the war torn country of Afghanistan, Skateistan was set up as the world’s first co-educational skateboard school. It takes the displaced youth of Kabul and through skateboarding teaches them about cross-cultural relations, education and personal development.

It amazes me that in the midst of all the one of the bloodiest and politically unstable countries. A group people/volunteers have taken it upon themselves to help the next generation of kids in Kabul and hopefully give them brighter futures.

Great stuff here.

Who says Germans don’t have a sense of humour. This made me laugh.

It’s a dog life

August 26, 2010

You get up, you get fed, you get taken for a walk and then you settle down to watch Family Guy. Just your average day in dogsville.

Tarp surfing

August 23, 2010

I’ve been a bit rubbish recently (see what i did there) and not posted as much as I should. Soz. Anyway Tarp surfing was one of those things I meant to put up here but just forgot. But as it’s doing the rounds again and because it’s pretty cool I’ve posted it anyways. If you didn’t see it the first time round enjoy.

Star wars Uncut

August 20, 2010

Star Wars Uncut is the brainchild of Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating new and fun experiences on the web.

Working as a developer at Vimeo, Casey became interested in using the internet as a tool for crowdsourcing user content.

Star Wars Uncut is the product of 2 years of hard work for Casey who wanted to test the appetite for creating a crowd sourced movie.

Rather than create a film from scratch Casey broke the first Star Wars film down into 15 second segments and asked the general public to make their own favourite segment of the  film. The results are in and the final edit is now available to view online.

If you love Be kind Rewind you’ll love this. Very lo-fi but none the less entertaining.

The city that never sleeps

August 20, 2010

They say New York never sleeps, but where else in the world would someone race across town at 5am at 100mph all for a bit of romance -Paris of course.  C’etait un Rendez-vous is a film by Claude Lelouch’s made in 1976 and translates as ‘It was a date’. The ending may be a bit cheesy, but if you ever wanted to race across a cities empty streets you’ll forgive it. Put your headphones on, turn up the sound and enjoy.

If you don’t find swearing repeatedly funny, it’s probably best you skip this post.

Pole dancing

August 19, 2010

In the India, pole dancing championships means something very different to what you and I would  imagine. Gone are sexy women or half drunk flabby girls in clubs and in come agile men who perform sublime athletic moves.

The guy 1:40 in is genuinely incredible.
