Beautiful Shining Star of Superstition


 
Bill McClintock mashed up "Beautiful Girl" by Van Halen with "Shining Star" by the Temptations and Stevie Wonder's "Superstition." The music is sublime, but watching the video might give you whiplash as Van Halen ages twenty years forward and then back again.

Building a Bridge in the 14th Century

The historic Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic, was built over the Vltava River. Construction began in 1357 and continued for around 50 years. How did they build such a large and sturdy bridge back then? This video from Engineering and architecture gives us a ridiculously quick idea of what was involved in the bridge construction. We can only hope the engineers and laborers alike were adequately compensated. (via TYWKIWDBI)

Step Into The Twilight Zone



A mysterious stranger gives Dennis Hopper advice on becoming a political star. This is an excerpt from The Twilight Zone episode "He's Alive," originally aired in 1963. A longer clip that includes the big reveal can be seen here. Season four of The Twilight Zone gave us hour-long episodes, while the other seasons were a half-hour, and that's why this particular story isn't available on Netflix, but Hulu and CBS All Access has it.
