5 million people have watched this video over the past week. If you are not one of them and you have ever worked a corporate job, you should take a break from whatever you are doing and be ready to feel equal parts giggly and deeply frustrated.
This is stunning. It seems near impossible that anyone could stand at a ledge on the ocean floor and dive head first off of it. But what is even more mind-blowing is that they could do all this in one breath.
World champion freediver Guillaume Nery calmly walks into the water then dives into the deepest blue hole in the world, Dean’s Blue Hole, which measures 663 feet to the bottom.
The cinematography is beautiful. I have no idea how they knew to put the cameras where they did. Was there a diver filming? Nope. It was his girlfriend is also a freediver. So many mysteries. I want to become a champion freediver so I too can fall into the cracks in the ocean.
In 24hrs. Shot entirely on iPhones, this rumored Apple commercial skipped the Superbowl and went straight the the Internet. Pretty smart of you Apple. It’s no ’1984′ but it definately makes a statement. iPhones are everywhere. It’s amazing how different the world has become now that amazing, creative, talented people carry mini-computers in their pockets.
To be honest, I don’t know if this is the best or worst idea ever. That said, it’s still incredibly cool. I was all about Scholastic’s Magic Eye as a kid and relished in seeing things my friends couldn’t. Now as a grown-ass adult who stares at a computer screen all day, I’m not seeing so clearly through all that fuzz. But that doesn’t stop me from trying and admiring the Young Revel’s awesome concept.
By using one of several different techniques to view them, an autostereogram produces the illusion of depth perception. To view autostereograms, people have to “decouple” or defocus their eyes, which tricks the brain into seeing the slight variations in the repeating pattern as depth information, Raab wrote in this post on the band’s website. They can be viewed in one of two ways, using either the “crossed-eye” method or “parallel-eye” method. The band has actually produced two different versions of the video for those who prefer one or the other for their Magic Eye viewing goodness.
Just looking at it, I was like ‘ummm soo cool’ then I saw this bot in action and I turned into a gleeful child. ‘Robots are awesome’ and they are most likely going to ‘take our jobs’. Thanks NASA.
It’s no question that we all fell in love with the Make A Wish Batkid stunt and most of us could care less that it cost the city of San Francisco over 100k. Totally worth it. A sick little boy got to fulfill any nerd’s wildest dream. Above is the official behind the scenes video with the family talking about the caper. It’s a great recap of the whole event, not to mention down right charming.
I’m an audio learner and a huge chunk of my memory is saturated with song lyrics. And since I never see them written out about 10% of those lyrics are totally wrong (which often ends in public singing embarrassment). For those of you who, like me, have been belting it out from your misinformed brain, here’s a breakdown of popular lyrics from 2013 that you might be singing wrong. To make it even more clear, these are the ones that will get you laughed at.
I have a pro-crush on Casey Neistat. He travels the world living life to the fullest under the guise of making beautiful videos. What makes me love him even more is when he does this not for himself, but others. If you haven’t bumped into this story on the Internet already, it is pretty amazing. Casey Neistat spent $25,000 of 20th Century Fox’s marketing money for ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ on Philippines typhoon relief. Even better is that Fox got back every pennies worth in promotion as this video now has over 1 million views on YouTube and has been picked up by some major press. Touche 20th Century Fox, Touche.
Need to set the holiday mood? You could find yourself a plain old boring (though still magical) yule log to toss onto your screen of choice OR you could maximize the experience with not only a fire but an adorable kitten purring and falling asleep next to it. Too cute!
I’m normally not one for the whole same story seven different ways thing, but I found this parody of Hollywood directors styles to be spot on. The Wes Anderson and Scorsese Christmas days made me giggle. So formulaic, so true!
