You might want to turn the volume down for some of these. 1. "Radiolab and NPR Present Words" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0HfwkArpvU> A clever montage. 2. "Mad Men: The Carousel" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2bLNkCqpuY> "Mad Men" is a show about advertising people set in the early 1960s. It's well-written and a welcome departure from those endless crime-scene shows. SBS (belatedly) starts showing Season 2 from tonight. Here's a clip of a highlight from the end of Season 1. 3. "Mad Men Opening Credits" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcRr-Fb5xQo> Not only a great show, but it also has one of my favourite opening credits from any TV series at the moment. Cool music, too. 4. "Simpsons parody of Mad Men" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcmM7Jh2Y3k> "The Simpsons" openers are probably my other favourite opening credits. 5. Schumacher's pitstop from "Asterix at the Olympic Games" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfSWYxMqhAc> The rest of the movie was ok, but not great. This bit was a highlight. Ferrari Formula 1 fans in particular will get a kick out of this. 6. "Fishing for a goal" <http://blog.planetargon.com/entries/2010/7/28/fishing-for-a-goal> Elaborate, entertaining goal celebration. 7. "Champion cardstacker builds capitol with 22,000 cards" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvLkjuYunRw> This guy has an interesting job. 8. "World's Most Amazing Trick Shot!" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XTGBOKqccw> Uses billiard balls _and_ dominoes. 9. "Amazing Amazon Box" <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Nv28lunRSY> I wonder if this happened naturally, or if it was staged? 10. "Freakonomics, the movie" <http://devour.com/video/freakonomics-trailer/> For those who don't like reading books. Hopefully it will get more people thinking about economics.
