One Year in 40 Seconds

A beautiful video that shows all 4 seasons in 40 seconds. Eirik Solheim created this video by taking still shots of the same landscape at regular intervals throughout 2008. The result is a truly gorgeous look at the amazing-ness of nature!

Another (Better) Choose Your Own Adventure Video

Apparently, I posted too soon. I found another CYOA video directly after writing my last post. This video is - in my humble opinion - a good bit better. Better writing, acting AND it involved time machines and zombies. Yea, that just happened. Check it out!

Choose Your Own Adventure Video

I am extremely grateful that the good people at SpecBox have created a "Choose Your Own Adventure" video series. I'm pretty sure I am going to spend ALL night determining every possible ending - totally nerdy but also TOTALLY awesome.

Episode 1 - "Baby, It's Been A Long Day"

Single Ladies Videos

People have been recording themselves dancing to Beyonce's Single Ladies video ever since it came out. There have been quite a few interesting versions (my personal favorite is this one), but I recently found the following video and loved it; this little girl is just too cute to handle! She really is a mini-Beyonce in training...and I'm still trying to decide if that's a good thing or not.

Craziest Football Play Ever

Obama - The College Years

Time Magazine just released an awesome photo shoot of Barack Obama in his college days. The pictures were taken by a college friend and do, in fact, prove that our new President is pretty freakin' cool.

I Love You, Man - Movie Trailer

Seems like Bromance is the new hot term these days. MTV has a whole series dedicated to it and now there is even a movie about it! Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, and Andy Samburg are the stars of I Love You, Man - due to open in March of 2009. This movie looks pretty sweet - I'm looking forward to watching these funny men develop a true bromance.

Check out the trailer...

Mr. Belding Sings Karaoke

Found this via BuzzFeed this AM. Mr. Belding (aka Dennis Haskins) of Saved by the Bell fame is a karaoke fiend. Typing in "Dennis Haskins Karaoke" on YouTube turns up quite a few videos. Dennis will be releasing a DVD/CD called "Karaoke with your Favorite Principal Dennis Haskins, aka Mr. Belding" in the upcoming months. Nothing like a title that tells it all, huh?

Check out some Belding karaoke videos below. He even sings with Brooke Hogan in one of them...I guess that means he's really "made it"!

Animated Christmas Lights

The McNamara Family in Queen Creek, AZ have award winning Christmas Lights. Their animated light shows feature 25,000+ lights, a 6 foot helium balloon and a 12 foot mega tree. Sounds like a party to me.

I wanted to share a few of their animated Christmas light songs with you. You can find more info on the family here.

Motivational Videos

This time of year can get a bit dark and gloomy for all of us. In order to curb those feelings, I've decided to post a few motivational videos.

To get us in the motivational spirit, I think it's best to start off with our favorite motivational speaker, Mr. Matt Foley.

I'm sure that now you're pumped and ready to go...why not watch the following speeches and get even more inspired?

And finally, this is for those times when you're feeling just a lil' blue...

Hope you have a fantastic, upbeat day!

30 Rock - Jefferson Trailer

Was watching 30 Rock a few nights ago and saw the following was too good not to post.

Susan Powter - Eat A Pear

I'll always have a soft spot for Susan Powter. I can recall many a late night watching her "Stop the Insanity" infomercials; she always fascinated me - but in a totally creepy way.

Well, if you didn't already know, Susan Powter is back on the scene doing her diet and exercise thing...and she is as crazy as ever. Her YouTube account has some great vlogs; everything from her rambling on about Rachael Ray to clips from TV appearances.

I found the following video on Susan Powter's account this evening. It has already been remixed in various ways and put back onto YouTube. I smell a meme in the works...

Eat a Pear

And, just for old times, check out a clip from her "Stop the Insanity" infomercial below...
