When two planes collide it was lucky everyone had parachutes on. They all survived, even the pilots. One plane landed but the other pilot had to bail out. I think I read he had to use a reserve parachute to escape.
This is an extended 1080p version of the grainy video that was out a few weeks ago. It has footage from multiple Gopro cameras mounted on the helmets of the divers. Amazing that nobody was injured or killed.
Another cracking video from Republic of Telly.
I had read several positive reviews of this beautiful puzzle platformer and picked it up during a sale some time ago but alas haven’t played it for much more than an hour yet.
It’s not a game that will tax your nerves or make your brain ache but it’s beautiful to watch and the puzzles draw you in. Definitely worth buying and experiencing.
Cork band Crystal Swing’s new song and crazy video.
I recognise Eddie Rocket’s in Blackpool but what school is that? (via)
It can get pretty crazy at live performances can’t it? I’m 100% guilty of taking photos at concerts and I recorded video of my son’s stage performances at school. I even sneaked a camera into the Irish Bruce Springsteen and Take That concerts.
Meanwhile, this is what Louis CK has to say about posting videos of your kids on Facebook. It’s very NSFW obviously so be warned!
Do you wonder if you’ll ever watch any of those videos again? You need to make it easy for your family to do. Grab Plex, install it on your PC and tell it where your family videos are. It will do the hard work of indexing them. You can browse them from a web interface, on your phone in their app, on PS3 or Xbox 360 even. I’ve rediscovered videos taken when my son was only two years old that make me smile and laugh all over again!
I found the video above on fstoppers where Mike Wilkinson mentions a singer named Mayer Hawthorne who told people to get out their phones and cameras and he and his band posed for photos. Apparently everyone put their cameras away afterwards and enjoyed the show. Good idea. Taking that one step further it’d be great if performers put photos and videos of their shows online for fans to download. Put that URL on the ticket. Could schools do something similar? Most schools must have a reasonably competent (or enthusiastic) photographer and videographer as a parent. Delegate the job perhaps?
Finally, keep making memories and recording them but as I’ve been reminded many times, get your face out from behind the viewfinder too!
There’s something about watching this video that got me thinking I need to eat a Yorkie. Dunno why.
“Like and Subscribe, it really helps me out” – Every Youtube video ever made.
Please, please, please, please make a good job of this movie. My six year old son will love this. Oh alright, I’m sure I’ll get a kick out of it too! (via)
From the “so obvious I should have known” department.
I was watching a gaming video and the start of the video was really slow. I realised that I rarely fast forward through YouTube videos and when I do it’s with the mouse to skip big chunks of video.
I only wanted to skip the bit about the game menu and the mouse would have been painful clicking on the progress bar all the time. What about the keyboard? I had read that using j and k goes back and forward but it didn’t work for me so I searched for this most obvious of answers and found this page.
J and K still don’t work but right and left arrow do the job and there are also many other controls!
If, like me, you missed the fantastic Xbox One reveal yesterday or whenever it was here it is in all it’s glory, but cut down to two minutes.

I can’t see myself buying one of these, not when I have a keyboard and mouse on my PC and I looked in vain for decent replacements for those when I did play games on consoles. The thought of going back to using a controller for anything but flight/car/platform games makes me shudder.
