Video - The 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time

I was starved of a few things while living on an Adventist boarding school campus. One of them was meat. Oh god, how I missed meat. Since I've been back I've had a burger, ribs, AND steak. Mmmmm. The other thing was YouTube, which meant no bloggzors. But thankfully I'm back, and now I can watch videos and continue to share them with you all. It will take me a bit to get back into the daily swing of things, but to start us off, here's a wonderful montage created by a dedicated user over at Pajiba. Enjoy.

Time-Lapse - Modules

Obviously, I love time-lapse videos. I've delved into them myself a couple times, but nothing to the extent of the following video. It's nice to see a video that shows something being built, as opposed to clouds moving across the sky. Also, I've just discovered that the Internet I'm using for the next week blocks almost all video players, so you may see a lapse in updates until I get back.

Animated Short - Fluffy McCloud

Conor Finnegan's graduate film for IADT National Film School is a mix of stop-motion, live action, and hand drawn animation. It explores "man's misunderstanding and mixed relationship with mother nature" while being light-hearted and fun. Hit the jump and enjoy.

Video - Underwater Base Jump

I have a pretty big fear of being in deep water. Anything I can't see the bottom of is off limits forever. Even watching Happy Feet gave me the willies at one point. So while I will never be able to fully enjoy the following video, I can still appreciate the fact that this guy is freediving into a giant hole in the ocean. See what I do for you people? Facing my own fears to bring you entertainment.

Music Video - "It's Working" by MGMT

I really like MGMT's new album, Congratulations, and their latest music video is just as cool. Trippy and imaginative, "It's Working" really takes the time to explore its concept. Hit the jump and enjoy.

Video - Bruce Lee audition tape for The Green Hornet

It's common knowledge that Bruce Lee is a badass. In this tape, we get to see just how in control of his body and martial arts he really is. He's candid and informal, while also being respectful and intense. I doubt there was any debate whether or not Lee was going to get the part.

Short Film - Apricot

Australian director Ben Briand created this film through Moonwalk Films for the 2010 Vimeo Awards, and it is extremely well done. An emotional story, beautiful film-making, intimate moments, a truly wonderful story. I wouldn't skip this one, and it deserves your full attention.

Trailer - Red

Combine ex-CIA operative Bruce Willis, creepy old man Morgan Freeman, craziest of the crazies John Malkovich, hot ass Mary Louise Parker, motherfuckin' Brian Cox, AND machine-gunnin' Helen Mirren and you get what looks to be a shit-kickingly awesome movie. Hit the jump for the embedded video. On a lesser note, I'll be out for a couple weeks with limited internet access, so the following posts are mostly scheduled. Still feel free to leave comments and send in videos.

Music Video - "Own Stunts" by Breathe Owl Breathe

I love everything about this video. The folk music, the costumes, the visuals, everything. They have a new album, Magic Central, which will be hitting stores some time this summer. No details yet, but it's still too far away.

Commercial - Dodge Challenger "Freedom"

As an American, I would like to apologize for the following video, while simultaneously enjoying the crap out of it.

Trailer - Tangled

Last week, Walt Disney Animation Studios released the trailer for Tangled, their 50th full-length animated film. With voice talents Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi, the film has a definite storyboard feel, which is pretty cool. And the co-directors also were part of the team that helmed Bolt, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Hit the jump for the embedded trailer.

Music Video - "End Love" by OK Go

OK Go is like Pixar, they can do no wrong. Their newest video combines their awesome music with stop-motiony goodness. Very innovative and complicated. I hope OK Go stays together just so we can keep getting their videos. Hit the jump for the embedded video.

Animated Short - MARS!

Mars is a very cool animated film that focuses on human exploration of new planets. Although it starts off on a level of optimistic curiosity, it quickly descends into a sad pattern. If that throws you off, just hit the jump for the sweet animation style of Joe Bichard and Jack Cunningham.

Dealing in Absolutes & Swearing to Protect Forest Fires

There's a Mitch Hedberg quote generator. It is my new permanent tab.

Music Video - "Flush" by Riz MC & Envy

I love this music video. It's so trippy. With Monty Python-style animation, a husband and wife start a fight with each other, which literally grows to epic proportions. Combine that with rap and you've got a stellar video. Hit the jump.
