I'm amused by little videos lately it seems.

The Day I Met Dave

Beard horror (short 1 minute video) / via @wiseacre

Mike Matas – One week in Japan

Really dig this "video" comprised of (thousands?) of still photos. Beautiful stuff.

Tattly, the video

From the fine folks at "Made by Hand" - I saw this last night and was giddy.

The Eames Loung Chair 1956 debut

Never seen this footage before, tickled and fascinated by it.

Pichfork’s favorite music videos of 2011

I want to watch these videos, because I haven't seen most of them, but I'm also enamored with the slightly animated header graphic on the page.

The Art of Dancing

A new video for every day leading up to Christmas by Lewis & Luke. My friend Wendy said it saved her evening, I believe it has saved mine too.

‘Kadinchey’ by Pogo

Fantastic video and song filmed around Bhutan.

School Portrait (2011)

Directed by Nick Scott, produced by Michael Berliner, smiled at by myself, brought to my attention by wmcreates

"The hidden movements and melodies of street tiles." Quite lovely.

Khoi Vinh: On the Grid

Lovely film of Khoi talking about structure and design. / via DaringFireball

8 traits of great Metro style apps

DaringFireball posted a link to this HOUR LONG video about the new Metro layer on top of the next Windows. It's touch and tablet friendly, and exhibits the flat and modular UI of Windows Phone 7 (which I think is quite beautiful, but never used.)

Back to the Start

This is a promo for Chipotle, but so very well done. Willie Nelson, a Coldplay song, and an animated film by Johnny Kelly / via @kyleluvsew

Don’t Fear the Internet

Someone asked me if I could recommend a book to start to understand web design. But this thing that Jessica Hische and Russ Maschmeyer made fits the bill better than a book. A great resource for those wanting to learn and understand what makes the web.

A simple and quite lovely video for the World Wildlife Fund / via @yoursben

How to Make Cinemagraphs

Incredibly nifty stabilization of handheld video. Now if only I could open up PDFs with Adobe Acrobat...

It’s okay to not like things

A short little fun video. Has language (dick). / via waxy

Tina Fey on Improv

It's a long video. I'm making note to watch it later for a few reasons: 1. Tina Fey is solid. 2. I've heard improv can apply to everything.

Full screen this shit. Awesome. (postnote: At least it was on a Saturday night!) postpostnote: Apparently the type bit I like is very Enter the Void title sequence

As seen on that nifty sword video on Kottke's "weblog"

People Doing Stuff

Weird stuff. But as It's Nice That suggests, it's oddly gratifying. (video)

Espresso, Intelligentsia

This video is beautiful and I learned more than a thing or two watching it. Awesome for the coffee lovers and non-lovers. /via

Wow. Totally new song. (youtube link and MP3 download)
