Screen Shot 2013-02-25 at 12.15.31 PM

I guessI love two things; Legos and Michael Jackson. This short film combines his awesome solo dance from Smooth Criminal and Legos in to 29 seconds of awesome. Enjoy it over and over. I did.

Dubstep Dispute

I’ve been known to be the old man at the studio when it comes to music, so Dubstep isn’t exactly my thing. That being said, this video is pretty rad. It’s Jason Giles‘ interpretation of what Dubstep actually is.

Kids Reenact Sabotage

James Winters got with his wife, two kids, and his nephew last weekend to produce this tribute to MCA. What better (and cuter) way to pay tribute than to dress up kids as adults and have them reenact Sabotage, one of the greatest music videos of all time? That’s exactly what they did. Check it out after the jump.

Cain’s Arcade


Here’s your little does of “humanity isn’t completely doomed” for the day. A 9 year old boy builds an entire arcade out of cardboard in his Dad’s used auto-parts store. He gets one customer, filmmaker Nirvan, who then crowd sources a ton of people to come play this little boy’s arcade. The end result is the little boy saying it was the greatest day of his life.

Beauty Is Embarrassing


The world of Wayne White is a place I want to experience. He’s worn many hats such as a painter, sculptor, cartoonist, puppeteer, set designer, art director, animator, and illustrator. He created and voiced Randy among many other contributions to Pee Wee’s Playhouse. I find his attitude and approach to making extremely contagious.

All of this energy and humor is captured in Neil Berkely’s documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, which will premier at SXSW next Saturday! Go check it out. Below you can see the incredible trailer and some of Wayne’s paintings.
