Brilliant Music Videos – First Asian Boy and Daft Punk

First up is this one my buddy Will shared on facebook, which is a parody of Estelle’s American Boy.

It’s called “First Asian Boy”, and I’m digging his style:

This guy has got 1.2 million views on youtube so its doing very well!

Second video I found whilst surfing the web called “Daft Bodies”. It’s Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”. It’s genuis!

It listed in the Daft Punk Youtube Channel, but I don’t think its an official Daft Punk vid as I’ve seen the cartoon one (also very good). It’s more of a fan vid. Very simple, yet highly effective and creative!

If you are into Daft Punk, I would highly recommend this idaft. It has a console with different words. You tap the buttons on the console with your keyboard and recreate the song’s chorus. Very cool! 

I’m out like being an Asian Boy,

Matthew Ho.

the ultimate blog: the fail blog

Rarely do I come across something so funny and so well done. The fail blog is da bomb as it has pictures and videos of fail situations. It’s titled “FAIL Blog: Pictures and Videos of Owned, Pwnd and Fail Moments“. All it has is a very simple layout with pictures and vids, and a bunch of social media links to digg, stumbleupon, etc.. to rate it. It might be simple, but by golly does it do it well!

If you hadn’t realised, the word “fail” and “epic fail” has slowly crept into our vocab. I’m not sure where it came from, as well as the words “Owned”, “Pwnd”, but I recall friends using it ages ago when referring to computer games moments in Warcraft, Counterstrike, etc… So that could be the origin and now its in everyday use. Anyhow, prepare to ROFL with these pics from the fail blog

I found this blog via the “top blogs today” section within wordpress. There was also “fastest growing blogs”, and top posts”, etc… I have seen them all the time, but I never looked at them or clicked through. I think I might start doing that now! It’s a form of social media recommendation similar to Digg or Stumbleupon as you can see what blogs are popular. 

I’m out like fail,
