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:
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.

Who knew dumping a bucket of ice over your head could be this nerdy?
This is beautiful, original, and inspiring. I’d be willing to stand still for three hours to have my image live on hidden in the details of a painting.
Making a classic song new (or in this case old) again isn’t a new thing. In fact, Post Modern Jukebox has been at it for over four years. Traditionally, the group would perform their remixed renditions in their living room. But apparently, the landlord wasn’t too cool with that. In an effort to keep things going while they plan their ‘eviction tour’, they’ve released this jazzy number. Ordinarily, I’m not a huge fan of their videos (which have been quite popular over the years) but the addition of the new setting and cinematography has me sold.
Combine a highend bass set up and love of vaping and magic. The bass makes the puff of smoke that surrounds you dance.
Watching this video I get a creepy, crawly vision of a future where these creatures crawl around like pests patrolling the city. The future of robotics is awesome and insanely scary.
Modern music is largely made by computer and keyboards have begun to replace more traditional well, keyboards (as in the Casio kind). So the concept of this video, I get. But I can’t help but giggle when the guy plays his own face.
Here’s some inspiration for the day or maybe even the year. Doing something you love and not getting results or recognition is difficult. It’s easy to think that if I work hard and do good work I should be successful, right? But no. I’ve been working on this blog for over 3 years and it’s not some big brand that everyone has heard of. Not that I thought it to be, but I did expect it to be more popular that it is by now. Not getting the results you feel like you’ve earned is deflating and you start to ‘give up’ or care less at the exact moment that you are about to break through and should be pushing harder. So this is a reminder from the wise and accomplished Ira Glass to not give up, try harder, care a little bit more, and close your own creative gap.
Jonathan Mann is a guy. Fact. He is a guy who has made a video of him singing a new original song everyday for the past 2000 plus days. Also a fact. But no matter how hard he tries to get his name out there, he turns into ‘some guy’ any time he does anything notable. Oh, the media. As a journalist myself, I don’t know if this will ever change. But at least we now have ‘some guy’ singing a entertaining song about it.
