Proof that anyone can nod their head to a Daft Punk song.
The Russian indie band Biting Elbows apparently does the coolest music videos ever. These two are really worth watching, especially the second one. Very original.
Warning: if you’re easily offended by violence, these videos aren’t for you.
This is the craziest racing I’ve ever seen. It’s like the Isle of Man TT but instead of racing the clock, they’re racing each other at the same time! Nuts.
The video documents the (usually) very peaceful life of a fire lookout in the Gardner Lookout on the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County, California. I’ve been a Marin County Fire Department volunteer lookout for two years and deeply love the mountain and the peace it brings to us here in the Bay Area. Perhaps this 6-minute video will convey some of the emotions I feel when sitting (and sleeping) on her peak.

As you probably know, I’m a sucker for time-lapse videos, especially ones from here in the northwest. Here’s another great one I came across that shows off the beauty of this wonderful part of the States.
When I was in Italy last month to meet up with some of my co-workers, we took a chartered bus from where we were staying near Assisi into Rome. For fun, I stuck my GoPro camera onto the windshield in time-lapse mode, shooting a photo every 1 second for the duration of the 3-4 hour trip.
I took the 9788 photos it took before it’s battery died (I forgot to use the battery booster pack) and turned them into this pretty cool video:
Hint: if you want to see it in super quality, change the Quality control up to “Original” to see the full resolution (2592×1944 pixels).
Automotive journalist Chris Harris had the opportunity to ride along in some classic rally cars driven by some professional rally drivers and the results were absolutely spectacular. Make sure you have those speakers on!
The Swiss have some of the most awesome hillclimbing races. Here’s some of the best half hour of hillclimb video I’ve seen. Worth the watch if you’re into auto racing.
You’ll love this video if you’re a gearhead:
It was filmed out in eastern Oregon and Washington! The awesome road in the video is Maryhill Loops Road which is closed to the public although it’s available for rent to car clubs and such.
