Off-road racer RJ Anderson teamed up with snowboarder Torstein Horgmo to frolic about Lake Tahoe’s Donner Ranch Ski Resort, with UTV Underground’s modded 2018 Polaris RZR XP Turbo-S tossing snow everywhere, and Torstein boarding perilously close to the UTV.

Jacob T. Swinney and Fandor dive into the film trope of an object of desire that its characters are searching for, but the audience doesn’t necessarily care about. It can drive motivations and momentum, but as we’ve learned before, MacGuffin’s aren’t always the best plot device.
We recently watched a couple of real bomb techs take on a VR bomb defusal; now watch surgeon Dr. Johnson C. Lee attempt to perform both a brain transplant and heart transplant in the far less realistic, and far harder to control Surgeon Simulator, courtesy of BuzzFeed Blue.
(Gore) ScreenPrism talks about the trademarks of a Coen Brothers film. It often starts with a crime that goes awry, and eventually punishment gets dealt but in a roundabout manner, with random acts and vile characters as the jury. But it’s not totally hopeless.
For his latest lesson on the harsh realities of reality, Captain Disillusion takes on a classic internet video, in which a Rochester Institute of Technology student attempted to create the urban legend that an Escher-inspired staircase actually exists somewhere on the campus.
Brock “The Man of a Kajillion Voices” Baker uses just 29 of his available impressions to follow in the footsteps Toto, Weezer, and everyone else on the Internet with his cartoon character version of the 1982 hit track Africa. Mostly he just made us miss Zoidberg and Brak.
A charming and thoroughly entertaining cover version of Florence + The Machine’s 2010 hit track Dog Days Are Over, arranged by Michael Charles Smith and performed by the students of his Marimba Lab. Their cover of Portugal. The Man’s Feel It Still is wonderful too.
A look at how raw clay is pulled from the earth and transformed by hand into beautiful and intricate sculptures by artisans in Michoacan, Mexico. It’s a wonderful, all too brief look into artistic traditions from Mariano Rentería’s fantastic Mexican Handcraft Masters series.
In his latest attempt to advance to the Iron Age, Primitive Technology tried smelting iron-oxidizing bacteria to collect iron prills, or small spheres of the metal. He made a small furnace and filled it with charcoal and the ore. After 3 hours, he ended up with a handful of cast iron.
While visiting Viennna, musician Viktoria Yermolyeva stopped by the showroom of vaunted piano maker Bösendorfer, and decided to tickle the ivories a bit with a tune we’re pretty sure has never been played in their store before, System of a Down’s 2001 hit Chop Suey.
Filmmaker and composer Stuart Hilton’s son Stanley had his brain scanned for science, and his dad decided to take footage of the sliced up imaging layers, animated them, and set them to a trippy ambient soundtrack. It’s weird to think that we all have this stuff inside our heads.
Maker and destroyer of things Giaco Whatever lives up to his name with a truly random project. He recently decided to build himself a replica of the galley from an airplane so he had a place to put his coffee maker in his shop. Of course, it helps that he had all the trolleys and bins.
Artist Marcello Barenghi presents a time-lapse video of him creating a photorealistic image of a fried egg using colored pencils, paints, and airbrushing. The simulated shine is so impressive that we want to grab a fork right now and poke it into our screen. Breakfast time!
