SciBookChat

I've been making some videos about science and books. They're not reviews of science books, but more discussions of things related to how science and scientists are presented in books. For example, in what I retroactively called "season 1" I looked at parody science books. I'm now in "season 2", where there'll be a new episode every two weeks until the end of the year. The first one of the season involved a bookshop tour to discuss different types of non-fiction books, and the next one (November 3) will be about how the representation of scientists in fiction has changed over the years. Specifically: how and why is Frankenstein different from The Martian's Mark Watney?

Doctor Who Fan Orchestra

I'm one of hundreds of musicians and singers who are part of the "Doctor Who Fan Orchestra", a virtual orchestra where each person records their own parts. Everything is organised and assembled by Stephen Willis, who deserves most of the credit, aided by a small group of volunteers. The rest of us just make music. Linked is our latest piece ("Donna's Suite"), but there are nine previous ones to listen to. [more inside]

“Can’t Feel Your Pulse”

A medical school music video parody of "Can't Feel My Face" by The Weeknd. (These parody music videos are a thing at med schools right now, and mine is no exception.) Simultaneously kept me sane and drove me crazy while I was learning cardiology over the past few weeks. The lyrics are in the video description on the youtube page. If you have any familiarity with med school, pay attention to the details on screens and whiteboards in the video for additional jokes.

House minus dialogue

I cut all of the dialogue out of an episode (S1E11, "Detox") of House M.D. just to see what would be left. Answer: only about 14 minutes of running time, a reasonably coherent storyline thanks to some good blocking and visual direction, a lot of exasperated reaction shots, and a few long uncut segments where wordlessness was the point of the originally-aired sequence.

Global Voices - News About Japan

Since September 2014 I have contributed stories about Japan as Global Voices' Japan Editor. I report on what Japanese people are actually saying about the news on Twitter, in blogs, and on 2chan (somewhat similar to Reddit). Often I can find eyewitness accounts (in Japanese) to what's happening in the news, sometimes even scooping Western news outlets. It's all about presenting an authentic, slightly quirky take on current events in Japan.

Underviewed: Searching YouTube Using Default Video File Names

Most every camera or mobile device uses some kind of default naming convention (iPhone: IMG_1234.MOV, GoPro: GOPR1234.MP4). This site searches YouTube for those default file names, and serves up videos that have a low number of views. Because these videos still retain their default file names as titles, it's unlikely that they've shown up in any searches. And it's very likely these videos haven't been seen by all that many people.

DANGER RADIOACTIVE

This is the YouTube playlist to turn to if you want to say WTF over and over again, or inflict WTF upon other people. Concentrated weirdness, painstakingly curated to move fast and be completely inexplicable. Best experienced on Shuffle, and in small doses. Many clips salvaged from folks' old MeFi posts and comments! But really, heed the warning in the title, this can alter your brain chemistry if not handled with care.

Conversus

My interviewing website, called Conversus, is a place where people can tell any story they want. My experience interviewing includes as a radio, television, print reporter and as well as a freelance videographer and writer, and through my work as a public affairs officer. Because I have talked to hundreds of people during my career (maybe thousands), I have a good sense for what motivates people to share, namely asking a simple question and then, listening. I have had many five minute conversations with strangers who's stories could've been made into indie film sagas, only to have them disappear never to be seen again. I think these interactions are the stuff that fuel us and give us empathy for each other. [more inside]

The Aubscast: Exploring a Minecraft Advent Calendar with Aubrey

After Thanksgiving, my seven year old daughter asked me to find a Minecraft texture pack with a Christmas theme so she could explore her Minecraft world embelleshed with holiday touches. Well, I found one on the Minecraft forum, but the poster said it was created for an Advent Calendar he was building for inside the Minecraft universe, and to check back later for that. We'll my daughter and I waited patiently and when he finally posted it, we decided to record our adventures going through the advent making a little YouTube video for each of the days as we opened them. Little did we know some of the advent days would take longer than 15 minutes. So the link goes out to a YouTube channel where we've been posting these for the last nine days, but there are more than nine videos so far, primarily due to a little mis-adventure with some explosives.

Zombies of the World: A field guide to the undead.

A full color heavily illustrated book that describes 20 species of undead, their history, evolution, survival tips and more. It's already receiving great reviews like this and this. Zombies of the World reveals the undead to be a valuable part of our ecosystem and the key to new discoveries in medicine and technology. Few outside the scientific community even realize that creatures like the Egyptian Mummy (Mortifera mumia aegyptus) are actually zombies. Some species are even harmless to humans. The Dancing Zombie (Mortifera immortalis choreographicus) only seeks to thrill us with elaborate dance routines. Even if we could annihilate all zombies, we would lose knowledge potentially vital to our own survival. After decades of research, we have no idea why zombies never tire or stop. They possess an endless source of energy to shamble or (in some cases) sprint after us. Unlocking this mystery could benefit all humanity.The web series on Youtube further explains these mysteries.

A constantly updated collection of the most illuminating and extraordinary videos online.

My friends and I enjoy sharing videos we like on facebook and stumbleupon but wanted something more self-contained, so decided to build a website, inspired by sites like devour and bestofyoutube. Whilst the idea may not be original, I think that the quality and range of what we cover makes us stand out. As well as including new finds the site aims to archive interesting videos, with the aim of being the most comprehensive collection of what we like online (+ with the hope that other people will find the site useful as well). We tend to feature a wide range of stuff but generally avoid adverts, videos of kittens or people falling over. Many thanks to the MeFites who have posted links to videos that have been put on the site. C+C welcome as well as suggestions for videos that should be added.
