An Update On That Halloween Light Show House

Remember those videos I posted back on Halloween of a house featuring an amazing light show? Well after that LMFAO video went totally viral, LMFAO actually showed up at his house to do a video:

LMFAO even made use of his house for the American Music Awards:

He also created a great light show for “Sexy And I Know It”:

Props Matt whose post reminded me to post an update.

Go Kart Racing In Budapest

I was in Budapest last week for the Automattic company meetup and during that meetup a bunch of us went out go karting. I took my GoPro HD Hero 1 with me and mounted it onto my go kart using a suction cup. The videos turned out pretty cool (although lighting was an issue) so I thought I’d post two of them here. 🙂

The Opening Race

I had gone to this place a few days before so I already knew the track and the karts but most of the people I was racing against where new to the track and karts, hence the speed differences.

The Championship Race

The people who posted the top 7 best lap times were put into a starting grid and had a final race off. The track’s narrow width made it nearly impossible to pass but it was still quite fun!

The final lap (starting at about 8:20) was a victory lap which is why I was goofing around and trying to powerslide. 🙂

“What Does It Feel Like To Fly Over Planet Earth?”

A cool video made up of a series of time-lapse images taken from the International Space Station:

Here’s the description from the original choppy version of the video:

A time-lapse taken from the front of the International Space Station as it orbits our planet at night. This movie begins over the Pacific Ocean and continues over North and South America before entering daylight near Antarctica. Visible cities, countries and landmarks include (in order) Vancouver Island, Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles. Phoenix. Multiple cities in Texas, New Mexico and Mexico. Mexico City, the Gulf of Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, El Salvador, Lightning in the Pacific Ocean, Guatemala, Panama, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Lake Titicaca, and the Amazon. Also visible is the earths ionosphere (thin yellow line), a satellite (55sec) and the stars of our galaxy.

So beautiful.
