Everything You Hate About Advertising in One Fake Video That's Almost Too Real | Adweek -
"Well, this is hilarious on a few different levels. Stock video provider Dissolve has taken the text of Kendra Eash's brilliant advertising takedown, "This Is a Generic Brand Video," originally published by McSweeney's, and set it to actual stock video clips. The company explains: "The minute we saw Kendra Eash's brilliant 'This Is a Generic Brand Video' on McSweeney's, we knew it was our moral imperative to make that generic brand video so. No surprise, we had all the footage." The results, narrated by Dallas McClain, are outstanding. You've seen all of this footage in ads from major brands. It's everywhere. And it's great that a stock video house would so gleefully celebrate the soul-sucking manipulations for which its offerings are generally used. Watch below, and have a great self-hating rest of your afternoon." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
I finally watched the video--and now I wanna buy me some GB stuff! Maybe even their stock! It will make me feel good. Right? (If there aren't already Generic Brand Granola Bars and Multivitamins on the market, there will be.) - Walt Crawford

The Leidenfrost effect - Boing Boing -
"In the Leidenfrost Effect, a water droplet will float on a layer of its own vapor if heated to a certain temperature. This common cooking phenomenon takes center stage in a series of playful experiments by physicists at England's University of Bath, who discovered new and fun means to manipulate the movement of water." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
