ANOMALY

Set against the space-race canvas of the 1960's, Anomaly is inspired by the traditional Christmas Nativity and explores, through a modern-day lens, the events of two-thousand years ago. It is a story about relationships that intertwine around an unprecedented astronomical event, as a couple navigate life's realities at a time of unfathomable significance. Filmed on location in NYC, Maine, Kansas, and Colorado, the film features Christian Cooke, Lexi Johnson, Andrew Sensenig, and Anthony Lopez.

Shooting at a 5-pound gummi bear, first as is, then after being partially cooled by liquid nitrogen. Unfortunately he didn't wait long enough for the center to get frozen.

A perfect 9-dart championship round. Even if you know absolutely nothing about professional darts, this is impressive.

OK, I'm only halfway through episode 1 of this 5-part limited series, but you should go watch Halo: Nightfall. I'm hooked so unless something awfully stupid happens in the remaining 15 or so minutes I'll watch all of them. The first episode is just under a half-hour so I'm guessing that the other 4 episodes are likewise in length.

OK, a couple of clunks along the way but overall worth watching.

The first episode is 25 minutes (excluding credits) while the middle three are about 15 minutes, then 20 minutes for the last segment.

Apparently the guy who put together the series at the above link is not associated with Microsoft so no telling if they will let his page at YouTube survive. Unfortunately he begins episodes 2 and 3 with a minute-long apology to Microsoft asking the company not to shut down his page.

I guess I should note that I did let go the initial clunker of how the Halo had been shattered into bits (huge ones, to be sure) and yet somehow the bit upon which most of the action takes place somehow retained an atmosphere. Perhaps something in Halo lore would explain how this would be possible (let's say: Halo was composed of superdense materials that created its own gravity so the original spin of Halo was only to keep it in a stable orbit and only had a minor centrifugal force adding to the apparent gravity on its inner surface), but I haven't played the game and so am unaware of any such explanations.

Plus even if the red giant that the Halo fragment orbits were rather close to Halo's original star, it would take hundreds if not thousands of years for that fragment to travel between those stars (the implications in the video is that the time is within years--at most a decade or two--of Halo's destruction by its own star going supernova). The speed of any such extrastellar object like the fragment would mean that unless interaction via gravity with the red giant's planets changed its path the fragment's velocity should have tracked a parabolic or hyperbolic path through that star's system (like a non-returning comet) rather than simply orbiting it. Such is possible, but it was never explained in the videos.

Oddness: “The Great Romanian Bear Dance". Apparently this is a Yuletide event at a Romanian village.

And--because I like to end with a bang--fireworks factory explosion in Columbia. At least two people were injured according to reports.

Lucid Dreams of Gabriel - Experiments on HDR (24/48 fps)

This may need Chrome, or at least a browser that supports HTML5 video to choose the 48/HD option.

One of a popular series: "Does This Thing Really Work?" The Wow Cup in this particular instance. The sidebar should link to many more such videos on all sorts of products.

OMG--I think I'm in love.

The other day I installed a plugin in Firefox to force html5 on Youtube and it really improved playback.
Just putting that out there. :)

"Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures". Basically some 3D-printed sculptures of things like a pine cone pattern placed on a rotating table and under a strobe light.

Another weird Japanese commercial. Try to figure out what the ad is for before the end (oh, and before you read the surrounding text if you can read Japanese).

Parents under investigation by police and child protective services for allowing their kids to walk to their local park without supervision.

Man, my parents would have been in heap of trouble had they been brought 50 years forward. I spent most of my childhood without anywhere close to this level of supervision and I turned out...well, maybe not quite OK. Image

Stranger abductions of children are amongst the rarest of crimes and, statistically, a child is overwhelmingly more likely to be used, hurt or abused in their own home.
Simple hysteria.

Episode 1 of "Crash Course: Astronomy". I linked to Plait's Bad Astronomy blog so you can read his description of his video series. Do note: while this video ends showing a link to episode 2, it is currently not yet available.

A five track EP composed by Squarepusher and performed by the three robots that comprise the Z-Machines will was released on 7th April (8th in North America). Watch a video of the robots performing 'Sad Robot Goes Funny'.'Music for Robots

The guitarist of Z-machines, Mach, plays two guitars with the aid of 78 fingers and 12 picks. Cosmos triggers notes on his keyboard with lasers and drummer Ashura uses his six arms to wield 21 drumsticks.
Aw, he's no fun, he fell right over.

You could hardly see them through all that eye makeup.
