Billy Mays

This has been the weirdest month with (in)famous people dying. First, David Carradine was found dead hanging naked in a hotel closet in Thailand, then Ed McMahon dies of pneumonia, both Farah Fawcett and Michael Jackson die on the same day and now Billy Mays has sold his last tub of Oxiclean. May they all rest in peace.

MP3 Experiment

Back on May 23, Over 2,000 people gathered for the Sixth Annual Mp3 Experiment. Everyone had to download the same mp3 and at exactly 4:00 pm press play. Once the opening song finished, Steve (the voice on the mp3) tells you to do some crazy stuff. Too bad I don't live in New York, because this looks like a lot of fun.

Weird Stuff from The History Channel

Seems as if there should be some prime material of interest for WU-vies in these five titles.





Or in the DVDs of the History Channel show they derive from.



Or even in the official boardgame!

Japanese Game Shows

It is no secret that Japan has some of the strangest game shows, but the combination of costumes, tasks, and punishment in this show is beyond explanation.

Eyeborg

Rob Spence, a filmmaker in Canada, who lost his right eye has now replaced that eye with a camera. Engineer Kosta Grammatis designed a video camera and transmitter that would fit into a prosthetic eye. Just think of all the possibilities. Waring: video does contain a very brief scene of eye surgery in the beginning. Eyeborg

The second video shows four amateur Turkish youths replicating the video.

Which do you prefer?

Morgenrot

This video is pretty weird on its own terms. But an added strangeness: all the manipulated images are "found art" from the Library of Congress.
