“Blu-ray’s emergence as the format of choice is now inevitable,” Steve Beeks, president of Lionsgate films, pronounced on Monday at CES 2008. I disagree. As I’ve provocatively maintained for years now, both Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats are locked in a death spiral that will ultimately lead to the failure of both - at least in […]
As very few of you might know, for some years now, I’ve been selling DVD Warning splash screens that I made myself that content creators can use on their videos and DVDs. In a good week, I was making $15 doing this, which meant that this Website was actually paying for itself - with a […]
This is a Max Fleischer cartoon from 1932 featuring Cab Calloway as a freaky ghost walrus. I pulled the clip from the fabulous Archive.org and cleaned up the horrid audio (normalized, eq a bit to get rid of the hiss). Very trippy, weird and not a little bit scary!
It’s a pretty famous experiment: scientists give some spiders different drugs and then observe the webs they build while under the influence:
Spider on LSD
And here is a short documentary about it. Fascinating:
You won’t believe this one. Even if I tell you what is going to happen, you won’t believe it:
Cat in a Goldfish Bowl
Stephanie sent me a link to this one:
Star Trek Knights of the Round Table
It’s a cutup of original Trek to the tune of Monty Python’s “Camelot” from “The Holy Grail.” Funny stuff. The source of this and many more silly cutups is: Vids by Killa and Friends
Sodium in the toilet was fun in high school, but this is awesome:
Remember this one from the Muppet Show? One of my all time favorite sketches in the history of television:
Do doooo, do do do.
This is how I’ll remember Jim Henson. Incidentally, the second little riff in the middle (around 1:10) is the jazz standard “Lullaby of Birdland,” by George Shearing.
I’ve compiled a page of my favorite videos from the Internet under the Clip Critic Videos link (also on the main Video button bar up top). These videos are an absolute Best of the Best, in my opinion, and I have tried to include only videos that are truly remarkable in one way or another. […]
This is a very cool promo animation from 1st Ave Machines. I linked to the youtube.com version, but you should head over to the 1st Ave Machine site to see their best quality stuff. You will have to tolerate some overly clever flash webpages, but it is worth it.
This is an almost excessively beautiful commercial. The music, the video, the concept - I’ve watched this video many, many times and I just love it. Watch the extended version and as large as you can. No CG, no special effects - acoustic guitar, gentle singing and a quarter of a million super balls.
