MANOS - The Hands of Felt

You might have read the title as Manos: The Hands of Fate, but this is not that. This is a recreation of that awful movie with puppets! Like, bad but with more laughs.  (via Nag on the Lake)

Freeride Skiing at Home

Philipp Klein Herrero was supposed to take his family on a freeride skiing trip, but had to cancel. At home, all he could think about was skiing, so he used his GoPro camera to make a little stop-motion video about it, which probably took as long a climbing up that mountain would have.

An Honest Trailer for Birds of Prey

Harley Quinn was the best part of Suicide Squad, so the producers lost the Joker and made a sequel, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), which was almost always shortened to Birds of Prey. So far, it hasn't made back the production budget, but that could be due to an unfortunate release in February of 2020 -and an R rating. It was released in March to video-on-demand due to theaters shutting down. Some critics liked it, others hated it, so you can watch this Honest Trailer to help you decide whether to watch it. "The link below" reference at the beginning of this video goes to Direct Relief.

Relationships While Working From Home

A lot of people are not used to being home all day, and therefore aren't used to being around their significant other 24/7. I'm not worried about ruining a relationship, as my roommate is a daughter who was sent home from school early. How do you tell an adult that she can't have friends over? But it's a big house, and we can avoid each other when it gets tense. Still, having anyone around all the time is weird when you're used to living alone. This graph is from Matt Shirley. 

Coronavirus Rhapsody

Shelter Skelter (Timmy Sean, Fernando Perdomo, Nick Bertling) put this together remotely, as a promotion for MusiCares. They really do a bangup job, but what's really weird is how little the lyrics needed to be changed. (Thanks, Linda!)
