Scandinavians are great with languages, but Finn-Swede smoccahontas isn’t speaking any language in this video, even while it sounds like it. She’s just making up most of the words and make it sound like she is. Having travelled through almost all of these countries, I’ve to admit that she really nails it.
This video, shot and made by Scott Gold, plays like a dream. It depicts Scott and his wife’s trip to Japan in January but to me, it shows how Japan is maintaining its illustrious history and mystical culture amidst the fast paced, beep beep, every person cross the intersection right now modern world.
From the usual viewer’s vantage point, it’s hard to appreciate the violent physics of a really great series of skate park tricks. That’s why this video shot from underneath pro skater Dean-Paul Denniston’s board is so mesmerising: you get a front-row seat to all the grinding, slamming, kickflipping action.
Stephen Soderbergh is a big fan of Psycho. The original Hitchcock thriller is 54 years old now, so we think it’s ripe for a bit of re-interpretation. Gus Van Sant’s 1999 shot-for-shot remake is newer, but as a tribute work we reckon the rules are a little looser. So does Soderbergh, apparently — he’s made a mash-up of the two films and posted it online.
Time doesn’t stop for anybody. Seasons keep rolling one after the other. Weather could care less if you’re cold or hot or just right. And life eventually ends. This new stop motion music video directed by Toby and Pete for Chet Faker’s Talk Is Cheap examines all that in 3 minutes. It’s mesmerizing to see a year’s life wither down in such little time. Enjoy it.
Once upon a time, in the early days of smartphones (y’know, a few years ago), a company would do everything possible to make its app look as similar to its website as possible. Now everything is topsy-turvy. Today YouTube revealed that some of the website’s new look is going to be borrowed from its mobile app. Brave new world.
Utah is an outstandingly beautiful monumental state, with some of the most incredible landscapes I’ve ever seen in my life. Monument Valley, the Valley of the Gods, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Capitol Reef, and of course Arches and Canyonlands, which you can see in this timelapse.
I don’t know if it’s the The Verve’s Bitter Sweet Symphony or the slow twisting motion of the quadcopter’s descent, but I really love this first scene from Viktor Mirzoyan’s aerial video over a beige Washington DC.
