Pure. Comedy. Gold. Jozin z Bazin
This is a glorious song about the Swamp Man Jozin… Ropey English subtitles below. It’s well worth watching throughout. Well, to me it is…

Vegetarians Are Plain Filthy
It never even occurred to me what Tofu really meant. Now I do! Storm in a teacup, but amused me nonetheless: Popped into the Campaign for Thinking, for obvious reasons. Thanks to Alison Classe who listed this on Cix.

Now That’s Clever… The Riddle on an Oscilloscope
Ok – so I admit – I’m not only impressed by animation, I’m impressed by tech toys. And oscilloscopes have always been a source of fascination to geeks. Throw in a bit of nostalgia and look what I find…

Very Cool Camera Tracking Technology
The chaps at Cam-Trax have come up with a rather nifty bit of software that can turn practically any easily visible object and a cheap webcam into a game or PC controller. I wish I could code that sort of stuff…. Now I’ll get back to working on SQL queries when I should actually be […]

Look Before Crossing
Almost worth it for the ooh-la-la.

Aintree Sprint, 30th June 2007 – Rain again
If you’re in Britain you’ll already be aware that for the past few weeks we’ve been getting rain of near biblical proportions, with floods causing a lot of damage in the Midlands, and just a lot of heavy rain in the rest of the country. Aintree wasn’t much different, though not quite so bad as […]

Videos are back!
Ok, it’s supposed to be video of the week… yet since Christmas I’ve not been updating this section. My Bad! Now, I’m not about to go back to updating weekly. I’ve been busy, I’ve got trips planned, and it’s hard to update this section every single week unless some of you start sending me quality […]

Wheels are Dangerous
This poor guy didn’t realise what hit him. It shows, to me at least, the importance of always having a little bit of a safety mentality when working on cars and trucks. It’s easy to get complacent, but with the large amounts of energy involved in moving our vehicles around, the danger is always present. […]

Balloon Racing – Beautiful
This is a beautiful piece of time-lapse photography, something I’ve just started experimenting with. If my videos are as good as this guy’s, I’ll be a happy chappy.

When Your Mic Breaks, Improvise!
Sometimes you record a great hillclimb run (this one up Loton Park) only to find a technical glitch has spoilt the recording. So if that’s the case, you must improvise….

Car stunts have never had the flash factor of motorbikes…now it’s changed! It’s a viral, but good… here’s the two that have been done so far:

Outcycling a Police Car!
Some cyclists are incredible – even the criminally insane ones….

Caterham at Oulton
Rather liked this video. Not so much for the driving, which is perfectly fine if not especially edgy, but the telemetry on-screen. I want a system like this! Does anyone know who makes it? PS. I wasn’t paying attention and titled this as Donington. Now corrected to show Oulton but I’ve left the path the […]

God Save The Queen! (Petrol Sniffer Style)
No, we’re a patriotic bunch here in Blighty. Stiff upper lip and all that, what! But in motorsport we’re not known for our pomp. Just gets in the way of the Castrol, I say! However, in deference to our glorious yet ultimately powerless leader, something had to be done:

Push me-Pull you
This is one that’s been sat on my hard disk for years, and I’m uploading it partly to supply it to someone on cix who’s asking for a higher quality version. So there’s a streamed version from the good people at Youtube, and a better one that’s linked to below which you can download and […]

When Track Safety Goes Wrong
I’m no fan of gruesome videos, but sometimes they’re necessary because otherwise we forget just what can go wrong and fail to plan for the worst. In the UK at least marshalls are some of the best – this is what happens when the marshalls aren’t well trained.

Breaking the Sound Barrier
A double whammy for you all this week! Two videos of Thrust SSC breaking the sound barrier.

A Thousand Incidents – Those Crazy Rally Drivers!
Sometimes you want to see just one clip. Sometimes you want to sit back on the sofa with a bucket of popcorn. This is just the clip for you then!

Motorsport Video of the Week #3
C’etait un rendez-vous. This movie was created by Claude Lelouch in 1976. It caused scandal at the time, and he was arrested for the driving although released without charge. I’ve posted it because although not strictly motorsport it’s well done (even if the soundtrack is dubbed) and it’s in one of my favourite cities.

Motorsport Video of the Week #2
Second in a series of humorous, interesting or scary motorsport videos I’ve found on the internet. All I’ll say is that trees are hard, but for at least one person involved in this crash it was probably a good thing. You can also view this clip on Google Videos.

Motorsport Video of the Week #1
Approximately every week I’m going to try and find a neat, interesting or just plain scary motorsport video and post it into this site. Some will be from Google and Youtube, and others will be sourced elsewhere. I’ll always give credit where due and if you ever find a video that shouldn’t be here please […]
