March 29th, 2011 · No Comments

In honor of the escaped cobra currently slithering around New York City (and tweeting about it), here’s a short film about the bravest cobra-killer of all time, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Adapted from the Rudyard Kipling tale of the same name and narrated by Orson Welles, “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” was one of my absolute favorite animated stories when I was […]

‘Captain America’ Trailer Commentary [Video Of The Day]

March 25th, 2011 · No Comments

Today’s choice of video is a little self-serving (okay, it’s a lot self-serving), but there’s a good reason for it.

To The Rescue [Video Of The Day]

March 17th, 2011 · No Comments

This one has some rough language, so keep that in mind if you want to watch it. The video is a recording of a guy getting into a fight with his girlfriend, and the surprising thing that happens when the fight is about to get ugly… (via Joe)

“Sound Of Music” Flash Mob [Video Of The Day]

March 16th, 2011 · No Comments

This was the scene in a train station in Antwerp, Belgium, when a group of people surprised the daily commuters by breaking into song and dance to Julie Andrews’ vocal stylings. Part of me wonders whether I’d be this amused if I was there when it all went down, just trying to get to my […]
