I’ve been having a really crappy week (and it’s only Tuesday), but then I watched some of JunsKitchen’s videos and felt a lot better. I posted a video of his a while back—he’s the guy who cooks while his cats watch—and he just seems like such a good, calm, cat-loving person that you can’t help but feel better after watching his videos.
Here’s where he makes sushi for his cats.
Here’s where he and his wife take his cats for a walk.
This is how cats should be treated, man.
Was sad. Then Whose Line helped a little.
Oh, my. What a catchy song.
Have a few more (mostly for the music videos). Happy Halloween!
Oh my god, I haven’t laughed this hard at a YouTube video in a long time.
I’m fucking crying.
Ever since I met Nate, I’ve been raving to him about Primer, a movie made back in 2004 that focuses on some ordinary people accidentally discovering time travel. It was a super low budget movie ($7,000) and wasn’t very widely released, which means it’s super hard to find.
But hey, there’s a legit version of it on YouTube, which is awesome! I haven’t seen this movie since we watched it in high school physics.
So for anyone who wants some super dense time travel fun, here ya go.
- That guy sounds so much like Freddie.
- This is the only version of this song that rivals the original.
- The tone change caused by the Queen style is chilling.
- AAAAAAAAA I LOVE IT
Postmodern Jukebox is a gift we do not deserve.
So as I’m sure many of you know, I’m all about the Sleepyhead remixes. I have approximately 25 or so of them.
Well, I just re-discovered this one and forgot how good it was. Check it out:
Love that violin chorus.
Remember that post about the Theremin that I made a few weeks ago? Hear it in Debussy form!
This is really beautiful.
I like this.
(Sorry, I have nothing interesting to say, as per usual.)
I stumbled upon this video on the YouTubes and was like “WHAT IS THIS WIZARDRY?!?!?!” so I had to look it up.
The thing she’s playing is called a Theremin. Named after its inventor, Leion Theremin, it’s played without any actual physical contact with the instrument.
The box in the middle contains radio tubes that produce oscillations that are at sound wave frequencies above what humans can hear. When the two waves combine, they produce a lower, audible frequency.
The two antennas are sensitive to where the player’s hands are: one antenna controls the pitch and the other the volume. Moving one’s hands towards/away from either of these antennas alters the inaudible frequencies.
Another cool vid by the same lady:
I WANT ONE
(A Theremin, not the lady, haha. Though she’s super talented!)
So I’ve been having a really shitty time as of late, but this video brought me much joy. What’s better than one meme? An older meme. What’s better than an older meme? A new meme and an older meme mashed together in glory.
(Sorry, I’m boring.)
HAHAHA, oh my god.
“Put ‘em in the Fun Pit.”
“Go back to Thanos. See what he’s up to. Oh, he’s playin’ football!”
I like to think this is how they storyboarded Infinity War.
Have you ever wondered why zero factorial (0!) equals 1? One of my students sent me a link to this explanation. It’s pretty intuitive when explained this way.
If there’s one thing that my Decade of Music project has taught me, it’s that there is no genre of music that I absolutely hate. I still have preferences, but my openness to things that I had previously considered “not my style” has increased greatly. For example, this song:
Years ago, I probably wouldn’t have listened past the first 30 seconds or so. Now I’m super into this song. It’s so layered and detailed. It sparks some weird nostalgia in the back of my brain that I can’t quite place. Maybe it sounds like a song my mom would have played back when I was a kid? Maybe it’s that soprano sax. That’s a very nostalgic sound to me for some reason. Not sure why.
Maybe I am Kenny G’s child?!?!?!
But man, this is a groovy song.
I clicked on this ad because there’s a poster in Market Mall with the same woman advertising the same fragrance. Turns out the video is much better than the print ad.
Love the dress. Love the dancing. Love the dancer. Too bad I can’t smell the perfume, haha.
A cover of a pop song? Check. One of the sexiest sounds I’ve ever heard at 2:13? Check.
The fall semester is about to start up soon, which means the hallways will be back to this nonsense:
I have no idea how many of my readers watch Riverdale (or watched it back when it was relatively sane*), but this video was in my recommended today and I can’t stop laughing at the accuracy.
That black hood one, oh my god.
*First season = typical teen drama TV, not too bad; second season = WTF
Edit: OH MY GOD SEASON THREE WHAT DRUGS DID YOU TAKE AND CAN I HAVE SOME
