Videos from the Blogosphere

More often than not, I skip over the videos in my RSS feeds. One of the perks of (temporary!) unemployment, though, is that you have a little extra time to do some of the things you normally wouldn't get to.

I came across three videos today that I absolutely loved, and had to share:

The first, which I found via Towleroad, takes Microsoft Soundsmith and uses it to create music based on real world data in the form of line graphs. Artist Johannes Kreidler used economic and political data points to make some misleadingly upbeat and fun music!

Video number two, also via Towleroad, is a mashup of Christian Bale's recent rant and a typically hot-tempered diatribe from Bill O'Reilly. Brilliant!

The last video is from Joe.My.God. He's posted the result of Courage Campaign's recent "Please Don't Divorce Us" campaign. It really does break my heart, not to mention bring a tear to my eye.

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

  1. Greg.. The "Don't Divorce Us" video touched me so much. I'm still baffled that they passed proposition 8 to begin with but to reverse all those marriages and break up someones life and family like that would be a crime against humanity.
