Forget snakes, this is ‘Circle of Life’ on a plane

I’ve watched ‘The Lion King’ on stage once – on Broadway in New York City, where I very happily paid for very expensive tickets and almost cried when the elephants came out during the opening song ‘Circle of Life’. So if this happened during a flight I was on, I would probably send my 4yo to ask for an encore. Thank goodness someone had the sense to record this, because the cast’s impromptu performance was totally wasted on this bunch of passengers. I mean, look at them! It’s like they DON’T EVEN CARE.

This Magic Eye music video by Young Rival is a must-see… if you can see it

I remember how ridiculously proud of myself I was when I first figured out how to see Magic Eye images, but this music video by Young Rival takes it to a whole new level. Set it to full-screen and give it a go. It’s a super cool, slightly trippy experience that may or may not leave you cross-eyed, and it’s so much fun!

Luca Iaconi-Stewart built the most amazing paper airplane in the world

Designer Luca Iaconi-Stewart Creates a Perfect Model Airplane Out of Manila Folders

It took him five years and it’s completely mind-blowing. The closest I’ve ever come (and probably ever will) to doing something like this was the time it took me five months to finish a painting because I procrastinated for four months after starting on it. His full story here.

You must see this performance by the Ohio State marching band

The Ohio State band’s movie-themed performance is awesome on just about every level. Once upon a time, I played trombone when I was in high school, and even though I wasn’t very good at all, a little bit of that band geek remains to this day. (From Deadspin.)
