Some people say, “How can you post on silly stuff like liquid nitrogen and ping-pong balls when we’re facing global economic collapse and the prospect of concentration camps if Obama is re-elected?!?” (#WAKEUP #ROMEISBURNING, and all that.)

I say, “Why work yourself up about silly stuff like the politics and the election when there’s awesome videos involving liquid nitrogen and ping-pong balls to watch on the internet?!?”

Wasn’t that so much better than watching some ridiculously infuriating interview with Mittens or Obummer?

Update: The video was removed by the user for some reason, but I just found this version.

The description reads:

On the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell we wanted to pay homage to our city by means of the campaign “Som Sabadell” (We are Sabadell) . This is the flashmob that we arranged as a final culmination with the participation of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs.

Hooray for stuffy corporations doing awesomethings! (That was a typo… but I like it!)

Man Interviews Himself of 20 Years Ago

Man Interviews His 12-Year-Old Self:

What would it be like if you could go back in time and talk to a younger version of yourself? Filmmaker and actor Jeremiah McDonald got to experience that process — in a way — thanks to a video tape he made for his future self back in 1992.

Twenty years later, McDonald cut together an interview combining footage of himself in 1992 (at age 12) and in 2012 (age 32).

The result is funny, poignant and ingenious in its presentation — which cuts present-day McDonald against his improvised 12-year old self two decades ago. As precocious as the younger version is, he also has one or two things to teach the older McDonald.

And now, the ever-so-awesome video:

“Frans Hofmeester filmed his daughter Lotte once a week for the past twelve years and produced this time lapse film. We’ve seen this kind of thing before … but the use of short snippets of video instead of still photos adds something.” (

He did the same with his son Vince too:

The video really adds so much personality!

A few weeks ago, I noticed a strange pattern of dust on my kitchen window during the morning. After peering at it a bit, I saw what it was. Can you see it too? (Click to embiggen.)
