I have a special place in my heart for Muppets, and this is pretty great, I like how the different beaker videos shot at different times, start reacting to each other, and invariably end with slight different versions of pretty much the same thing, the way things always end for Beaker.
Although my favorite is the two crotchety old men, I wanna be like them when I grow up.

This is about as surreal as it gets. An incredible video about the moving of a huge church on a huge truck, set to over the top choral music specifically written for the event. I'm honestly flabbergasted.
It's really strange, the truck is so small comparatively it looks like the church is moving on its own.
This used to be my wallpaper, The Homing Pidgeon soceity released hundreds of thousands of birds simultaneously, each set of pirds trained to return to their respective owners, during a huge celebration in the Netherlands, I think.
The exact details are sketchy it's been a while since I got this image, and I unfortunately do not know the artist's name.

It's Like an Ark Built to Save Two of Every Style of Architecture From The Great Flood of Cookie Cutter Homes, and McMansions
Wooden Skyscraper - Arkhangelsk, Russia
I've had the pictures on my hardrive for over a year I think not knowing anything about them other than they're of an awesome building, and probably Russian. Today I randomly found this article.
"Nikolai Sutyagin, a former gangster, began building this ‘wooden skyscraper’ in Arkhangelsk, Russia with the intention of it being only a two-story building. But, a trip to see wooden houses in Japan and Norway convinced him that he hadn’t used roof space efficiently enough, so he kept building. “First I added three floors but then the house looked ungainly, like a mushroom,” he said. “So I added another and it still didn’t look right so I kept going. What you see today is a happy accident.” The multimillionaire became a pauper after his possessions were destroyed during a stint in prison, and the house is now decaying around him, but he still lives in the bottom floor with his wife."

This was quoted from the lead character of the new movie Twilight, based on the young adult book of the same name, which tells us Rape, Violence, Stalking, and Pedophilia, are ok if the vampire Really Really loves you.
