Perhaps you already know how amazing William Shatner is. Maybe his rebooted career has already won him your affections.  Maybe you’re a camp aficionado and you laud him for creating so many powerful works. For those of you who are still in the dark, let me clue you in to the awesome side of William Shatner:

Inception in (near) real-time

Written by

Comments: 1

If you haven’t seen Christopher Nolan’s brilliant film Inception, don’t watch the above video — It’s a film that is better unspoiled. But if you did see it and you came away a little confused, this video might help. YouTuber Weikang Sun has edited the film so that each level plays at roughly the speed of the corresponding levels. The resulting re-edit shows just what a braided, twisting masterpiece Nolan and company created.

Inception is out on DVD now. And while we’re talking Inception, check our own Fernando Alfonso III’s take on the film.

Halloween means ‘Thriller House’

Making a light show takes talent, but programming a crazy detailed light show in front of your house with all 6 minutes of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” takes a ridiculous amount of skill.

Thanks, KJ92508 for this awesome new addition to your light show line-up on YouTube. I know you must get this a lot, but I wish you were my neighbor.

Enjoy the thousands of flashing lights and singing pumpkin faces.

Happy Halloween!

RIYL: Mimes, people doing the robot, Japanese mimes doing the robot

This new video from Japanese electro-poppers World Order features a cadre of men in business suits doing some of that “super slow mo” action all of us have probably reenacted (in a bar, during some sort of sporting event).  The primary difference here is that they do it really, really well.  In the grand tradition of OK Go’s uberpopular viral videos and, uh, pretty much every Michel Gondry video ever, it appears that these guys just practiced this moves–a lot–and then they filmed at regular camera speed.  Pretty cool.

One caveat: mute the sound (unless you are, improbably, a World Order superfan).  Instead, I recommend playing Hall & Oates’ “Kiss On My List” while you watch.  Seriously, it was amazing.

Justin Bieber explained. Taiwanese-style.

Like most people I hate successful children. They’re always running around flashing their awards and telling people how they became millionaires when they were 4 years old. But I’m not sure why people hate Justin Bieber so much. They troll him on youtube. They try to send him to North Korea. They make inappropriate last.fm pictures and post it to his profile. Heck, they even start rumors of his death.

When Gmail started, you had to be invited to join. Now, Google’s an essential part of life – from YouTube and GoogleMaps to Blogger and Google Docs (thought to be the beginning of the cloud movement) it’s hard to imagine what life was like before Google.

Here is our list of three Google applications that you will soon not be able to live without:

YouTube Editor Is No Final Cut

Get ready to compile all the embarrassing dance moves you witnessed at a recent family wedding into one long video.

On Wednesday Google announced a new video editing tool for YouTube cleverly named YouTube Editor. The program allows users to edit their videos without any of the bank account-draining software sold at a Best Buy near you.

Chinese Live Action Street Fighter Kicks Ass

This video is two years old, but we’re guessing very few people outside of China have seen it.

The vid was created by students at the China Central Academy Of Fine Arts, one of the most prestigious arts schools in China. It’s not only an homage to Street Fighter, it’s also an homage to famous contemporary Chinese artists.
