more inappropriate (live) tv

Following up that news reporter is this clip I found.  A different kind of funny surprise for the viewers!  I can't understand what she's saying, but it seems like she rolls with it pretty well.... unlike that reporter.

Kayaker paddles over Palouse Falls

I think someone mentioned this feat in class the other week. This is a truly amazing video to watch, its really visually stunning and amazing to see someone paddle over Palouse falls. For those who don't know, Palouse falls is only about an hour away from Walla Walla. Enjoy.

Bug flies in news reporter's mouth

So I don't know if this is artistic or not but it made me laugh so hard I almost died. Enjoy

Iggy Pop King of the Dogs

Here's another interactive video

people inside of a cartoon land....

someone brought this up to me tonight. I don't really remember the TV program, but it made me think about the animation video Liz posted. it's a different way to think about animation and green screening. putting yourself in an imaginary world. might be helpful sparking ideas! 

and hey, yellow frog suits are cool too!

From the guys who brought you "Dick In A Box"...

Happy Mother's Day!

My Little Pony trailer

Ok, so this video is ridiculous, but so awesome. It has some effects we've been learning about in class, too. If each student at Whitman was issued a horse upon admittance instead of a box of onions, we could completely remake this trailer.

YouTube resources

Here are two incredible art genre-bending resources which allow the everyman to experiment with YouTube remixes:

  • YooouuuTuuube - Lets you zoom in, zoom out, multiply, and play with the volume, then publish your remix.
  • YouCube - Lets you overlap lots of YouTube videos and then roll the dice accordingly to create a 3-D remix with lots of sounds and possibilities.
I love how amazingly versatile the Internet is becoming, and how it allows everyone to participate in its awesomeness, whether or not they can afford Final Cut Pro (I can't).

So, this is the inspiration for my video, and i heard around class the other day that some of you guys are also doing animated pieces in your videos. I hope this helps spark some sweet ideas, or just makes you smile. I love this video. Especially the guy who puts an apple on his head and smashes great.

You're gonna want to watch this twice

I remember Ben showing my 180 class a video of a long distance ski jumper (whatever that event is called) fall and tumble down the hill as an example of engrossing spectacle. I just found this video which has some utterly MIND BLOWING examples of how such events have been narrowly avoided. As unlikely as each of the video clips here is, I find it wonderful to know that some lives have been spared in such unlikely ways.
