From Elyse, via Geeks are Sexy, via io9 comes this short animated film (~2 minutes) about teddybears battling monsters under the bed: Even the storyboards are fascinating: Storyboards from Tyler Novo on Vimeo.

Via my personal Facebook feed, which is usually full of people playing Candy Crush and posting ridiculously adorable pictures of their ridiculously adorable children (or posting some screed that ends with “most of you won't share this,” passive aggression, because, yes, sharing something on Facebook makes a sizable difference in improving whatever it is you're…

I can't describe the depth of my desire for these pants. Oh my gosh. I laughed so hard at this video:  Link!  I hope your weekend makes you want to dance, gold pants optional. (Though if you have some, send 'em my way, k?) 

Friday Videos Want to Let It Go Already

At the risk of getting Let It Go stuck in your head (again), this video of Christina Bianco covering the song while impersonating a bunch of different singers is hilarious:  Link!  The real pity is that her lines as Celine didn't have any use of the word “love,” which Celine somehow pronounces as “love,” “loaf,” and…

Friday Videos Love Optical Illusions

This week's Friday video comes from James, and it's pretty amazing. I found a few people doing this sort of illusion performance, but none in a park like this gentleman:  Link! The music, if you're curious, is from the soundtrack to the movie Amelie by Yann Tiersen. I hope your weekend is filled with simply beautiful things!
