Live Sound Wave Visualization Using Fire For A Good Time
The guy in this video demonstrates a Rubens Tube. He has a speaker at one end of a piece of PVC pipe that contains holes. He runs propane into the tube and lights it up like a camp stove. The pipes sound through the speaker and the sound waves compress the air in the tube giving the sound wave visualization in the flames.

Cat Plays The Piano For A Good Time In This Video
The cat in this video plays the piano with one paw and a chin. It's hard to tell if the cat is actually interested in the sound or if there is just fish oil or some such on the keys.

Physical Virtual Sample Based Touch Screen Musical Interface
This video has a table top screen (either an LCD or a projector from below) which they call a tangible musical instrument. Basically you drop blocks on it and the interface detects the function or sample of a block. The sample or function plays a sound or modifies the surrounding blocks. It's a half virtual half physical sample studio.

Guy Solo Plays A Piece By Mozart On A Violin In An Unconventional Way
Here's a pretty unconventional performance by a guy who's name I think is Gilles Apap. He's performing a piece by Mozart on a violin by himself. The unconventional part is that along with playing the violin he also whistles, sings, strums the violin like a ukulele, and plays a beat on the violin with his fingers. The best part is the look on the faces of the orchestra around him. They have varying looks between amazement, embarrassment, and astonishment as if they can't believe this guy is on the same stage as themselves at the same time that they are amazed at the sound he is producing.

High School Band Clones Halo Theme Song For The Win
Here's a video of a high school band playing their version of the Halo theme song. It sounds pretty good and features a violin, electric guitar, and drums. This version of the video is in their 'studio' AKA the living room. There are two additional versions in the related section on the host site where they play the Halo theme song at their high school talent show. The sound is much better in this video but lacks the stage effects. It reminds me of TheMetalBandWhichShallNotBeNamed which partnered with a symphony. I wonder how Bungie feels about fanmusic. Will they pull a TheMetalBandWhichShallNotBeNamed or let it be?

High Speed Camera Footage Shows Various Objects Exploding When Hit
Here's a video compilation of various high speed camera footage. It starts out with a dart hitting a balloon and then a dart hitting a water balloon. The thumbnail here is the dart hitting the water balloon. It's amazing how the water keeps it's shape after the balloon is gone. Next up is a tall glass which breaks (I assume from a sound vibration) followed by an empty glass water bottle and then a full glass water bottle falling and breaking into pieces. Following this there are various different videos of a glass sphere filled with various things like vacuum and then a tomato hit by a flying pencil. The video finishs up with an apple and another fruit being hit by a bullet.

Compose Beats Using Lasers And A Bowl Of Water In This Video
This video features what is basically a bowl of water which when the water surface is disturbed produces sound on a computer. Somehow this guy has five lasers setup to monitor the surface of the water and generate sound from movement of the surface. The purpose isn't to record the sound of the water but to make the water into a musical instrument control panel or some such. In the example the guy splashs and drips the water which causes different sounds to be played on a computer. For the win?

Origins Of Werewolves Decide For Yourself With These Photos
Here's a five page article which details multiple stories of people who have hair growing long all over them (see photo). There are multiple black and white photos of these people with exceedingly long hair and a few drawings as well. In a couple of the photos it appears that the same long hair trait was passed on to their children. One Russian guy named Adrian with the overly long hair problem had yellow eyes and greyish skin. Adrian had a son which also had the same problem and who later become "Jo-Jo the Dog Faced Boy". The description of the Adrian guy sure sounds like the beginnings of a werewolf myth though with this yellow eyes, greyish skin, covered in hair, and living on the forest. Or at the very least a perpetuation and reaffirmation of the existing werewolf myths.

Cat Runs Around A Cat Sized Hamster Wheel To Get Cat Treats In This Video
So the guy in this video took the idea of a hamster wheel, sized it up, added a reward system, and put his cat in it. The video is of his cat running in the cat wheel and every once in awhile after the wheel goes around enough a piece of food is released and falls down a tube and into the cat wheel. It didn't seem like the cat was stopping to eat the food though so I'm not sure what the cat's reason for running in the cat wheel is. Perhaps the cat treat or whatever it is doesn't fall out very often. Additionally there is a stick which hits top of the wheel and creates a tap tap sound as the wheel goes around.

Pirates Of The Caribben Rum Cereal Commercial Spoof Video
In this video a guy spoofs 'Pirates of the Caribbean' cereal. First up it shows a short soundless clip from the trailer and then it cuts into the cereal commercial. The guy plays as Captain Jack Sparrow and explains about how nutritious PotC cereal is for you. He goes on to say that it is the only cereal you can eat with rum instead of milk. The table is setup like a Cheerios commercial and then it's stacked with pirate gear like a compass, pistol, hat, etc. The guy gets some of Sparrows mannerisms down as well but falls out of character at a few points. Still a pretty good spoof. If you like cereal commercials.
