Trashed Ideas will be closing shop June 6th. Mainly because I’m too cheap to renew web-hosting, and also because while I do catch an awesome video that I share every now and then, the traffic has been dying down and and I don’t put as much time into this as I would like in order to maintain it. So I will be posting a ton these next few days, a lot of back-logged awesome. Hopefully you get to see it, otherwise you can catch it on FB.
I want to believe this is just a one-time stunt but he calls himself Spandy Andy so I highly doubt it. Curious to see what a white guy who can dance in a sparkly speedo looks like? No? Well 3 million views means some people are curious.
What is about ukuleles that are just so awesome? I don’t know. But this cover of Shaft is quite excellent. My favorite part is the when the camera pans to the only black guy in the audience of about 500 people.
This man was upset about being harassed by a police officer for using colorful language in a park. I’m not condoning what he did but his rant to Mark Sidrine (spelling?), the arresting officer, is inspiring and surprisingly safe for work.
Hopefully every knows the Dueling Banjos song and doesn’t immediately associate it to a purty mouth but even if you do you will still enjoy this video. These three boys (the 3rd doesn’t come in frame until well into the video) make up the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys and are more talented than you. I promise.
I’m not saying you have to watch this. In fact, it is my recommendation that you do not. But I would be remiss if I were to not post this particularly awful video on Trashed. It just belongs. For those brave enough to venture forward, I can at least give you the comforting knowledge that the music is at least enjoyable and there are no lyrics.
This ad for the Central Institute of Technology uses some awesome teleportation to highlight all the awesome things the college offers. Too bad teleporting is not an exact science. Not for the squeamish.
Phil Zimmerman is known for making weird videos. I’ve posted one of his previously though I haven’t the heart to force you to watch more than one of his videos at a time so I won’t link it. But this video… I don’t know how to describe it honestly. It’s got bad music in the background, he’s rambling on about wheelclamped things and such… Just uh…
Kara is a real-time demo by Quantic Dream, the game developers behind Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy. I highly recommend watching this for anyone who appreciates wonderful animation. Their games may not be for everyone but this one-shot story is breath-taking.
