All of the Lights Cello Cover

All of the Lights Cello Cover

A cover of Kanye West’s All of the Lights by The Portland Cello Project. We would have had goosebumps if we heard this live. At the very least it’s a version without Fergie’s lame-ass rap.

Nathan “Flutebox” Lee

Nathan “Flutebox” Lee

Playing the flute is difficult enough, but beatboxing and playing the flute at the same time should be left to the pros, like Nathan “Flutebox” Lee, who’s adept at both disciplines. Bonus track here.

Sometimes it’s fun to go to a more soothing place than extreme sports videos. Take, for example, the charming, carcinogen-filled style of Tom Noddy, the skillful trick bubblemaker. (Thanks Dave!)

Danny MacAskill S1Jobs Ad

8-Year Old B-Boy

8-Year Old B-Boy

8 year-old Anjelo “Lil Demon” Baligad can dance. In fact, he was good enough to smoke his adult competition at this breakdancing contest. His foe is actually pretty decent, but he’ll never live it down.
