We iz serious web professionals from all different sides of the industry, with one thing that brings us together — we know a great video when we see it, and want to share great videos with others.
Five days of the week means one video a week from each of us, as follows:
(Note: We post to Tumblr on a one day delay)
The only rules we have for picking:
1) The poster can’t have been personally involved in the video’s making.
2) It has to be awesome.

Seriously, guys — this is what the inside of my brain looks like. (The inside of my brain is TECHNICOLOR!)
Oh Jack Conte. I bumped into his YouTube channel five years ago when he released his Yeah Yeah Yeah music video. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him a few times at independent music and video meetups in the Bay area. So I’m a little biased in my appreciation of his music. But a robot spider playing Launchpad!?! I squealed a little at how cool that is.
I also love that Jack isn’t into music for the money but love the process and the art of winning people over with creativity. Jack makes all of his music in his home studio. He skips traditional labels, despite the popularity of his other project Pomplamoose, and puts all money made back into his songs. Stay tuned through the end of the music video to hear more about the donation-based support system behind Jack’s music.
Here it is as created by LA graphics and design team, The Glossary. Quite a nice job they’ve done, though was it really necessary for the guy and the cute girl to be all flirty in the store? Maybe so. Maybe not. Maybe judging is a waste of idle time.
This hot new single (clip of an interview from Jimmy Kimmel Live) is this summer’s most catchy dance track. Okay, it’s NOT as hot as Daft Punk, but I’ve certainly listened to the tale of Simon Pegg, Chris Pine and the cast and crew of Star Trek Into Darkness teaming up to prank Benedict Cumberbatch nearly as much as I have “Get Lucky.”
And there’s not even a sweet bass track! Just beautiful words and Pegg’s pretty solid Cumberbatch impression. Check it out.
I know I know, more cats. But seriously guys I LOLed so hard my sides hurt. ZeFrank’s homage to our furball-hawking friends and their tireless moodiness is down right genius. Demanding the world, upset with anything less than perfection, cats despite their silence have a lot to complain about (at least enough to fill an entire Captain’s log-esc diary).
I generally avoid ads because I feel like I should be paid to watch them and they are rarely done well. Audi however managed to catch my eye with this Spock on Spock mockery. Did I learn anything new about Audi S7? Nope. Does it make me want to watch more Star Trek, heck yea. Timed perfectly to the ‘Into Darkness’ release, Audi is definitely pandering to a generation of hard working nerds who love space, automation, and going fast. Well Audi, you have my attention.
YouTube channel Gritty Reboots unites some of public television’s biggest badasses to take down public ignorance. It will make you as happy as Bob Ross’s happy little trees.
…And he might be a little emotional about it. But no hard feelings. Right? Right? Right?
Koyczan is a spoken-wordsmith from Canada, and this video uses one of his poems as the track. The visuals are created by 87 individual animators who contributed 20 second increments. It’s a little long, but it’s gorgeous. It’s a little dark, but it’s beautiful.
Hope you enjoy, and thanks for having me.
Look, if you’re not following the adventures of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who is Tweeting and Tumblring WHILE IN SPACE (he is one of six people on the ISS, YOU ARE MISSING OUT. Because he is awesome.
Just the latest example: Here he is, demonstrating what happens when you wring out a washcloth in zero gravity, because the only thing more awesome than space? Is SCIENCE.
