Did you actually listen to Darth Vader’s breathing for 10 hours straight? Then YouTuber BenjaminApple’s Christmalloween video should be a walk in the park for you. He took the scene in Return of the Jedi where Luke burns his dad’s body on a funeral pyre and turned it into a 5-hour virtual fireplace.
Sit back, relax and listen to the sounds of a child killer’s flesh burning:
I hope there’s a rickroll or two in there.
Software developer Kamil Hismatullin does software security as a hobby. Recently the search giant invited him to be part of its new Vulnerability Research Grants program, and boy is Google glad it did that. Because Kamil discovered a bug that let him delete any YouTube video with just a few lines of code.
Kamil accidentally found the logic error while poking inside YouTube Creator Studio, the app that lets YouTube members manage their acccounts.
Normally, when you see a YouTube rap based on a piece of geek culture, you know it’s going to be awful. Probably better than a local Mitsubishi dealer rap, but not by much. There’s usually no flow, the most boring and predictable rhymes in the world, a beat that sounds like it was rejected from a MC Hammer album in the ’80s, and that awful breathlessness that comes with attempting to rap without having any practice at all.
I’m feeling quite behind the TV times of late. My dad bought my daughter a small Vizio LCD TV for her birthday not long ago. I realized last week when I had to flee the living room and my big screen plasma due to a Glee marathon that her little TV looks better than mine.
I don’t particularly like Justin Bieber, but I don’t have anything against him either. But I have to say that when the Overly Attached Girlfriend came up with an overly funny response to his Boyfriend music video, I was overly amused.
Look at this crazy K’Nex machine. It took 8 months to create, has over 450 feet of track and it includes over 40,000 K’Nex pieces, 8 motors, 5 lifts, 21 distinct paths, and a computer-controlled crane.
I bet many iPhone users spend a lot of time streaming video from YouTube on their smartphones when they have time to kill. The iPhone has had native support for YouTube since day one, but thanks to its ongoing war with Google, Apple announced not too long ago that it would be discontinuing support for YouTube natively with iOS 6 (and more than likely with the iPhone 5).
Sticky notes are a useful office tool. I can’t get enough of them, and after years of use I don’t know how many I’ve used. However, I can’t say that I’ve ever seen this many sticky notes used in a single animation.
There comes a time when gamers get sick of playing games and need to take a break, right? For some of you, taking a break means getting up to go pee, while for others, a break means watching some videos online.
YouTube is crazy popular. One of these days, Google will figure out how to make more money off those videos and generate metric tons of income. Until then it’s a place we can go to look at videos people post up of things as mundane as their daily breakfast or as exciting as car crashes and cats playing musical instruments.
This interactive 8-bit-style YouTube game uses the choose-your-own-adventure ethos to prepare you for the next season of Mad Men. It was created by The Fine Brothers with music and animation by pixel artist Doctor Octoroc (Levi Buffum).
In this day and age, people aren’t just being judged by who they are or what they’re really like in real life anymore. They’re also being judged by the number of friends or followers they have on Facebook and Twitter and the kind of reputation they have on these networks.
YouTuber/Trekkie/ambient noise addict crysknife007 loves the idling engine noise in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He loves it so much that he made a 24-hour looping version of it. On video. And put it up on YouTube.
