Walking With Dinosaurs

I wish, wish, WISH that this show would come to Salt Lake City. Just watching these videos makes me giggle like a 5 year old. An arena of full sized dinosaur PUPPETS! I seriously can't believe how realistic they made them, and all to full scale size, from the looks of it. Look at the preview picture on the video below. That's an adult man standing by the T-rex puppet.

And here's a video of the same type of puppet wandering the halls of the LA Museum of Natural History. I love how it makes some of the kids run away in terror.

Google SMS

The same guys who brought you the Google Maps video have a new feature on Google SMS.

NES Belt Buckle

Taken directly from their website:

"Sprouting up in many recent fashion shows in France, the NESystem Buckle is sure to take the world by storm. Included are two controllers, a power adapter, A/V cables, Super Mario Bros and those disguise glasses with the nose so noone knows who you are. We do not recommend wearing this buckle while driving, sitting or talking to girls."

Thanks to my brother Brad for sending this to me.

Crazy Street Performer

I seriously wonder how this guy doesn't get so dizzy that he loses it in the middle of this act.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Just go check it out... if you don't like it after the first act, don't bother with the rest. I, personally, think it's brilliant stuff, though. For background info on what this is, click on the "Read the Master Plan" button that's on that page.

And I don't know how long it will be up, but it sounds like it's only going to be online for about a week, so GO WATCH IT NOW!

Human Mirror

I ran into the Improv Everywhere website about 5 years ago and thought it was brilliant. Harmless large group practical jokes that make people in public places think they're going crazy.

Metal Balls On Strings

I can't believe that this is just hundreds of little metal balls attached to strings that descend from the ceiling.

I was mesmerized watching this. Thanks to my brother Brad who sent me a better version of the video than the one I first posted.

Last Home Run

I've got to give credit to my dad for finding this one. I'd heard about it on the radio when it happened, but this is an awesome video that covers the story.

This isn't the normal video post that I usually do. I ran across these ads for the National Aquarium in Baltimore that are pretty sweet. I went to their website, and the intro video is really cool. You can actually create your own faces made out of fish, it's pretty fun. The music on the site's great, too.

Here's the face that I made.
