Vide-Ohs: HS Dance Magic via the Wizard of OZ

To think that this performance was executed by high school students is astounding! This would be impressive if it were performed professionally on Broadway or at a Las Vegas venue. Everyone involved with this production should be saluted.

The choreography, dancing, scenery, etc. is wonderful and very well done. You will soon forget this was a hs gymnasium and I can guarantee that if you enjoy dancing and music, you will savor this masterpiece.

 

From the YouTube page notes:

Train Vide-Oh: Drone On – Flight of the Year?

I must say up front that I know nothing about flying a drone or taking pictures or movies with one. All I can say is that many of the blogs I follow have examples of drone usage and some of them are absolutely stunning.

I don’t want to address any of the legal issues of this phenomenon, but I do want to share a video with you that shows some of the skills users have developed in flying these amazing technological wonders.

I don’t know what all these words mean – Gapping, Perching or Powerlooping, but I am sure if you watch this video you will see examples of them. If the video is a bit long for you, you can get a good flavor of it and see most of the moves if you start at the 2:15 mark.

Whether you approve of drones, like, dislike, etc., you will probably have to admit that it takes much skill to do all of this with a flying machine.

Video: Gorillas Have Friendly Human Interaction

Primates are fascinating in part because they remind us of us. This video produced by the Aspinall Foundation shows how intelligent, loving, etc. gorillas can be. Pay special attention to the scene with the hat. Notice how the gorilla inferred the use of the hat and demonstrated that he knew its purpose.

This is part of information from the YouTube video page:

“In June 2017 our Chairman, Damian Aspinall and his wife, Victoria, made a special trip to our project in Gabon to oversee the transfer of a young gorilla group from the sanctuary where they met, to our Gorilla Protection Project in the Batéké Plateau National Park.

During their trip, Damian and Victoria met up with Djalta and Ima; two male gorillas from Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, who made the journey back to the wild in 2003.”

Video – Still the Best of Times

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

No doubt much of this sentiment vividly echoes today. We are living in turbulent times, but we are also living in the most advanced, wondrous time the world has ever known. The video below will offer a glimpse into this proposition and hopefully some JBRish readers will find inspiration and motivation to achieve more than they thought you could.

Undoubtedly some may find it a bit too proselytizing or idealistic and that’s OK too. If you don’t enjoy this style of video, or it just isn’t your thing, I hope that the quotes below, from the video, will provide food for thought.

NOTES

  • The video below has some NSFW language. Of course nowadays it may be difficult to judge what NSFW even means, but I would find some of the language offensive if my young child heard them or I had a middle schooler who wasn’t mature enough to hear them. Please consider this before you read further or watch the video.
  •  

  • The video is comprised of numerous clips from motion pictures, lectures, speeches, etc. and it is a bit lengthy, coming in at 38:24, but it goes fast IMHO.

Some quotes from the video, but not all the quotes:

     

  • “Excuses sound best to the people who are making hem up.” — Tyrese Gibson
  •  

  • “You can’t talk yourself out of something that you behaved yourself into!” — Stephen Covey
  •  

  • “It took me twelve years to get a four year degree but I got it and guess what, on a degree it don’t have dates. So if it took you four and it took me twelve it don’t show up nowhere, but I’m exactly where I want to be.” — Eric Thomas [some editing applied]
  •  

  • “I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.” — Joseph Campbell
  •  

  • “The world shall perish not for lack of wonders, but for lack of wonder.” — J.B.S. Haldane

From Carat to Carrot to Carat

Mary Grams lost her engagement ring in 2004 and it remained missing for more than a dozen years. She looked and looked, but couldn’t find it. An apparent miracle happened one day while she was working in the garden and pulled a carrot. There was the ring, wrapped around a carrot. In essence, the carrot was wearing her engagement ring!

Happy Friendship Day – 2016

Today is Friendship Day in the United States and research has shown that having friends, and perhaps one or two very good friends, can increase one’s outlook as well as longevity. To help celebrate Friendship Day, I thought JBRish readers might enjoy this brief video of two women who have been friends for nearly a century.

Video – Bell the Cat

Cat videos have surely taken on a life of their own on the Internet and the segment below shows one reason why. The video is simplicity itself, but it is entertaining and somewhat captivating. I have one suggestion below the video. I hope you find this as interesting as I did.

Notes From the Video – Pavlov’s Humans: Adorable video shows cats ‘training scientist’ to bring them food every time they ring a bell

NOTE – I wonder what would have happened if ringing the “other cat’s bell” would have yielded more treats? Would they have learned to ring only the other bell?

Video: Train of Thought – Not!

This is a slow motion video of an Amtrak Train coming into a station that has snow-covered tracks. Prior to starting this film, I understood that when the train entered the area where the snow was on the tracks that it would be thrown hither and yon or helter skelter; take your pick.

I am not sure why a couple of people close to the camera’s POV refused to move until it was too late. What were they thinking? What was their train of thought?

Credit where credit is due – I first saw this video on Petapixel at this link Slow-Motion: Amtrak Train vs. Snow
