Director Sean Dunne is a very talented dude who’s previously made some amazing documentaries on the ’subculture of Juggalos’ and underground country-music legend ‘Jonny Corndawg’, now turns his curious eye to the world of cam girls or “women who do internet sex work via web cam.” Dunne enters this NSFW world where virtual encounters take place in the respective bedrooms of clients and the models, and learns about this business while the women speak candidly about why they do it.
Firstly, before you start burning up with indignation and outrage, the backstory to this video is that it’s a feminist campaign that posits what is more offensive: the fact that women are still, in the 21st century, being treated unequally and subject to abuse and violence or some young girls dressed in tiaras dropping f-bombs?
The internet could learn a lot from comedian Pete Holmes’ monologue about how “hitting it back” can make all difference with people—so if someone smiles at you, hit it back and smile too, or if someone tells a joke, hit it back and pretend it’s funny and laugh, no matter how many times you’ve heard it before, because laughing is better than not laughing. And being courteous is better than hurling abuse.
Gather the family round, because it’s time to journey to a world full of c#nts — or at least, people saying the word c#nt, a lot. And not just anybody but celebrities which makes it all the more enjoyable. If you can count up the number of times the word c#nt is mentioned in this two and half minute video and send your answer on a postcard then you truly are a c#nt.
Christopher Nolan’s new movie Interstellar is due out next year, so maybe after that he might think about directing a movie for Pixar? It would be a great collaboration and one that’s explored in this mashup that looks at what Wall-E might have been like had the Batman Begins director taken the reins.
Filmmaker Fede Castro made this breathtaking time-lapse video of the earth from space using footage from NASA’s Johnson Space Center. The video journeys across the planet pointing out major cities and places shining brightly from the manmade light and catches the amazing spectacle that is aurora borealis.
A missed basketball shot is what starts of this basketball’s journey through 24 popular movies, movies which it has no right being in if it wasn’t for the post-production skills of HOTU, the people who made it. On its epic journey it passes by Henry Hill’s driveway, through Jeff Lebowski’s toilet, even into space.
As hard as it is to believe at this stage of the 21st century, there is a town in America which has no cell phones or wi-fi—it’s called Pocahontas County in West Virginia and it falls within the National Radio Quiet Zone. That’s because it’s home to the Green Bank Telescope which measures radio waves throughout the universe.
You may or may not have heard of London-based band USA NAILS and their track “Am I A Man Or Not?”, but that doesn’t really matter, because what matters is the WTF music video that accompanies it, which is made by British claymation supremo Lee Hardcastle. It’s bizarre.
Well that was quick, wasn’t it?

Some people are amazing. This is Tom Thum and with just a microphone at his disposal he does some incredible things with the human voice and creates some amazing soundtracks of insane beats and mind-boggling sounds, including scratched vinyl, the Michael Jackson back-catalogue, the didgeridoo and an entire fifties jazz band amongst his vocal repertoire.
There are two kinds of people that like watching cliches about movies that include the cliche there are two kinds of people, and that’s people who think they’re are only two kinds of people and people who know there are only two kinds of people. So which are you? Have a look at the ‘There are two kinds of people’ video while you decide.
