Raiding Vimeo 2

Yeah, it didn't take many hours for me to decide to make another one. I didn't even close the tab I had opened for the first one before I started this one. Anyway, it's as usual a mixed bag of awesome videos. Like this one, for instance:
Suddenly from Magnus Engsfors on Vimeo. Apparently he's just hanging in wires as someone goes around taking loads of pictures of him that's later been made into a surreal video. Or how about a video where a guy travels the world to dance in all kinds of places?
Where the Hell is Matt? (2008) from Matthew Harding on Vimeo. It has a tendency to make me very happy. It's people having fun, which usually makes the people watching happy. A piece of advice: Smile more. It makes you happier. Seriously, it tricks the brain into making you happier. Go look it up somewhere if you doubt me. But happiness can be replaced by sorrow as well:
Tea / Las Alturas Fire, Santa Barbara California from Patrick Lawler on Vimeo. Luckily I don't think anyone died, although a lot of homes where lost. Unlike in Australia, which as far as I know is still burning. Emotions always seem to be shifting, so maybe we should just relax, enjoy life and throw a party instead?
DGENERATE NATION - Skate With Me from DGENETICS on Vimeo. Besides, if I get to post at least something with a bit of music in it I'm happy. And this is a music video even! Though sometimes we just need to take the time to appreciate the small moments that we usually seem to ignore. Like having lunch in a hole in the wall type Asian restaurant.

lost in a moment from dennis wheatley on Vimeo. It's a cutout of a moment in time. Some say life is just a string of moments happening after one another. Some that life never truly change. Others that things always change and never stay the same. I'd personally say that life is what you think it is. If you want to believe that things never change I suspect I'd have a hard time to convince you otherwise. As long as it works out for you, I probably shouldn't try either.

Raiding Vimeo

We all know that Vimeo are superior to YouTube for a number of reasons: it looks better, has real HD quality, and consist mainly of good videos. Consider how much crap there are all over YouTube. Most of it is just copied from other places and reposted there too. Or at least a lot is. Vimeo, however, does not allow anything else than original work. This means you have to have made what you post yourself, or at least was involved in the production somehow. But enough jabbering. I took an hour or so to look up some videos to post. I didn't even have to leave the first page to find them either. Who knows what I've might find if I venture in deeper?
Rendezvous with Rama from Aaron Ross on Vimeo.
1000 Bills (In Imago Speramus) from Alex Itin on Vimeo.
MUTO a wall-painted animation by BLU from blu on Vimeo. Yeah, so these 3 falls under art. Which seems to be what most of Vimeo consists of from where I'm standing. Of course, that not all there is either. There some social commentary in the mix as well. For instance this little piece about Blackwater and other mercenaries in Iraq:
Hired Guns from JD on Vimeo. Not that I mind the art or anything, but I like variation too. The next video is also art, but since it's in HD I decided to end this post with it. More videos are to be expected. You may now rejoice. I might also post about psychology in the future. We'll see what happens I suppose.
SCINTILLATION from Xavier Chassaing on Vimeo.
