Rube Goldberg

I know I've just been embedding video into my posts lately. But I told you I'd be posting stuff about my new favorite things. Since I've been wasting a lot of my free time by watching stuff on YouTube and Google Video, my new favorite things come from there. I've only got one or two more videos that I want to showcase, and then I'll talk about different things.

I'm not sure exactly how I found this one, but I love it. I have no idea what they're saying, but I don't care. The sophisticated contraptions they make just mesmerize me. Plus, I think the music is great, perfect for the video.



Ita cora sui chi?

P.S. Thanks to my oldest sister's blog, I found out what they're saying. It's "Pitagora Suicchi". Translated into English, it means Pythagoras Switch. Now go here. You won't regret it.

Tetris

Twenty two years ago something was created in Russia that has changed the world. Alexey Pajitnov (probably through divine inspiration) invented Tetris, the puzzle game that everyone loves. Like other classic video games, Tetris has infiltrated modern pop culture. We've got Tetris Halloween costumes and Tetris techno music but the thing that takes the cake is Human Tetris. Somebody in Japan is a genius.



I think it's high time we got this going in the US.

Cherish is the word I use to describe you,

Long Time Gone

I know it's been a super long time since I've posted and I feel bad. It's not like anybody reads my blog anyway. I just thought I'd start to post stuff about my new favorite things. Here's the first.

I think almost everybody remembers playing with a Lite-Brite when they were a kid. It was so much fun making things and then lighting them up in a dark room. Anyway, somebody did some stop motion animation using a Lite-Brite. My brother-in-law showed me this one. I like some techno music so I don't agree with the chorus of this song, but I love the music and the video. Check it out.
