Are we the only ones who have ever been in this predicament? The Awkward Spaceship has captured the essence of asking your significant other “what do you want for dinner?” here, in a single minute. (Thanks Sam!)
It’s officially summer and it’s like a steambath in the city, so watching all the superior wakeboarding footage in Parker Walbeck’s video for Devin Supertramp is cooling us off. And maybe making us a little jealous too.
There’s a lot of enveloping geometry to fall into in Eoin Duffy’sOn Departure; the animated short is a very personal narrative centered around the loss of his younger brother, Emmet. Best watched full-screen with headphones on.
After reading contradictory press coverage about Williston’s oil boom, Colin Archdeacon and Skyler Swezy journeyed to North Dakota to find out what’s really happening. Good mix of interviews and befitting cinematography.
Commander Shepard’s persuasive voice carries over into this sketch from Sneaky Zebra – here, Mark Meer is trying to convince a guy to fight off the alien invasion with his trusty instrument. Alright, but is the plan crazy enough to work?
Young Eduard Taberner started his Sticky Man stop-motion animation project two years ago at age 15, and recently completed it. We admire his dedication and enjoy the simplicity and humor in his handmade drawings. Bravo.

(NSFW: Language) The folks of The Lonely Island have put together a catchy tune that helps us understand the proper usage for semicolons. We’re still laughing trying to figure out if these examples are good or bad.

We’re curious to know what happened to Jeff Bliss, the student in this video who told his teacher his candid opinion of her teaching style and education in general. After watching, you might want an update too. (Thanks Josh!)
Boston-based artist Jake Fried has created a very entertaining, minute long animation with ink, gouache, white-out and coffee, drawn by hand. You might want to watch it more than once – the details are rich and fleeting.
