I like the weekend…modern DaVinci edition

Okay, so this guy’s probably not as much of a genius as DaVinci, but his artwork is amazing. Here’s a 10-minute video from Make Magazine about Reuben Margolin, a guy who creates “totally singular techno-kinetic wave sculptures.” They are amazing.

If you’ve got some spare time, check out some of the other videos from Make Magazine. There’s some pretty great stuff.

I like the weekend…it’s okay, go ahead and cut my face edition

Here’s a wonderful video from the guys over at Everything is Terrible (I wrote about them here). In this video, we are told everything we need to know about the joys of plastic surgery. Here’s a few things to watch for:

Scene 1: “…with plastic surgery on the cutting edge [no pun intended, I’m sure] of medical science, you no longer have to be content with what you have.”

Scene 2: Don’t even look at the speaker here, just check out the creepy ceramic wall art on the left.

Scene 3: Are these really the people you want on your video about the wonders of plastic surgery?

Scene 4: After a few minutes, I remembered where I had seen that haircut.

And now, with no further ado…

I like the weekend…Abbey Road edition

Good music from the band Blame Ringo. But even better is the video showing a time lapse of all the people who stop to have their picture taken at the famous Abbey Road pedestrian crosswalk. The song is called Garble Arch (A Day in the Life of Abbey Road).

I like the weekend…comedic genius edition

Earlier tonight, I read a post by my friend Art (his blog, finitum non capax infiniti, is what I look forward to the most in my feed reader…and that’s only partly because he wrote a post about why I’m his hero) in which he wrote about the frustration of dealing with idiot-jerks in blog comments who make bombastic statements and then run away when they’re confronted by something they don’t like. One of the comments on a blog he pointed out in which this was happening reminded me instantly of this gem of a speech from Corky St. Claire.

That video led to several others which eventually led me to this series of videos from an interview show hosted by Ricky Gervais. Christopher Guest is the . . . guest, and he’s one of my favorite comedians. Here’s the first video of the series. Click here to see the rest.

I like the weekend…Mr. Lover Lover edition

Here’s a nice little treat for all you lovebirds out there.

And for you married folk:

And if you’re feeling real sexy, watch this video that’s been stuck in my head for about a week since I saw this outtake from one of my favorite shows, Psych. Why just the link? Because apparently every single sexy R&B video on YouTube has embedding disabled. Never would’ve guessed it.
