Recently Hugo walked up to me with a single gold coin in his hand and told me that he could perform a magic trick! Intrigued by the prospect of a five year old performing magic, I grabbed my phone to capture it on video and I was amazed at how well he did.
I’m not sure what is going on with the background of the video being all bendy but it definitely adds a whole new psychedelic aspect to the performance!
I came across this short but fantastic video of a bloke named Liam Morgan tearing down a steep hill in an urban area on his skateboard. What is great about the video is that it is raw, no cuts, no edits, no fancy camera work or angles – just Liam shredding down the hill au naturel on his skateboard.
Pay particular attention to how fast he is going in different sections of the hill and how often he is sliding on his skateboard, not just the big power slides he does but just trying to navigate through turns his skateboard is sliding all on its own.
Remember, don’t do this at home kids – Liam Morgan is a trained professional. These sorts of disclaimers usually include a comment about the stunts being performed in a controlled environment, well that one doesn’t apply this time!
The video is by a skateboard accessories company named Blood Orange and I think Liam is wearing their gloves, using their grip tape on his skateboard deck and might also be using their wheels as well.
Movember is a great initiative to increase community awareness for men’s health issues, whether it physical or mental and that when men are living with some sort of a health issue that they are treated the same way that women are – with care and compassion.
Each year at Mantra Group a number of my work colleagues grow a mustache in support of Movember and in the last nine years, for whatever reason I’ve never participated. This year is the year of change and I’ve joined our head office team and am attempting to grow a superb Mo by the end of the month.
There is a catch though, my Mo is a little scared and is only willing to brave the worlds criticism if he is supported through donations to help research and community initiatives through the Movember foundation.
Click the Donate Now! link above and while its loading, get your wallet out and have your credit card ready. When my Movember page loads, click the Donate To Me button below my photo – I’m confident that the larger your donation, the more awesome my Mo will be, so be generous!
I love creative advertising and LG Mobile have outdone themselves. The lead into the ad where you see Dave the cameraman and his camera rigging inventions sketched out and some he has made were hilarious but when Lizzy is introduced, it got interesting in a hurry. All the different uses for Lizzy and the new GallusCam or steady feather camera technology were fantastic, especially the little chicken noises you can hear at different parts of the ad.
Who needs a GoPro?
Robin Thicke is an American-Canadian musician who recently put out a very catchy song named Blurred Lines, which has been a massive success around the world and the official music videos (both censored & uncensored) have received over 200 million views on YouTube alone.
The content of the music video with either scantily clad (censored) or topless (uncensored) models dancing & prancing has unsurprisingly drawn criticism around different groups around the world.
As part of 40 comedy skits put together by Auckland University Law students for their annual Law Revue, one group of inspired students thought they’d do a feminist parody of Robin Thicke Blurred Lines, named Defined Lines. Since it is from a feminist point of view, the lyrics have been rewritten, reversed and the models are now scantily clad blokes. For those that are easily offended, the content and lyrics are a bit rude in places but it is really really well done – very creative!
