End of Term: It Must be Youtube Time Again!

This will be my last post for th current term. I am posting this early because I am scheduled for jury duty next week, and then most of us here in Davenport will be on break. So, please enjoy your time off, and please enjoy these little clips! I'll be back by the start of our new term.
1.       Basejumping “The Crack.” This is an amazing clip where you are looking backward at a second jumper while the first flies through a small canyon in his parasuit. Whoa!

2.       Mathieu Biche Fools Penn and Teller. I have some familiarity with magic, and I have no idea how he pulled this one off. And neither do Penn and Teller.  He cannot have forced a choice, since he set the trick up randomly. At least, so it seems. This is very, very clever.

3.       Turtleman. Hey, who doesn’t love the Turtleman? It is clear that Turtleman loves what he does, and brings joy to those he meets.

4.       Rachel Flowers on the Huge Beast Modular Moog, with Keith Emerson Introducing. Rachel is an amazing musician, who can play several instruments, and here she is allowed to play Keith Emerson’s original Moog, called the Beast. Oh, and she’s blind.

5.       Rachel Again. So, here she is dueting with herself on flute and keyboards.

6.       Firefly: Mal the Negotiator. One of the best but not watched shows ever.

7.       Gravity. This is the trailer for the new movie. This movie is unlike any you have ever seen. It is intense. Relentless. Mind boggling.

8.       Doc Martin. One of those great British series, this time about a misanthrope with no bedside manners who has a phobia to blood. Martin Clunes rocks!

9.       Mark Cavendish Crashes. Oh, this is scary to see. And you get a sense of how intense a bicycle sprint can be, as those riders are moving at close to 50mph!

10.   Subcontrabass Flute. Largest flute ever made, and an odd looking critter.
