A beer sits soundly on the gun of a moving tank without spilling in an impressive display of engineering.
On the day that Marshall and Addie Burnette got married at the top of Roan Mountain in Tennessee , their beautiful dog Ryder acted as the videographer, filming the entire snowy winter wedding from her own perspective with a GoPro Camera strapped to her collar.
On November 2nd, 2014, Addie and I got married on the top of Roan Mountain, TN in 2 feet of snowy wonder. It was cold and magical. Our dog, Ryder, insisted on filming the wedding video, so we let her do her thing. She took awhile to edit the footage, but we think she did a great job.
Before filming, Ryder had to scout out the wedding location.

Savannah, Georgia-based father and artist Bob Clagett of I Like to Make Stuff has released a wonderful step-by-step tutorial on how to create ridiculously large lightsabers. His entire collection of steps are available to view on the I Like to Make Stuff website.
There’s not a whole lot to say here… I mean, they’re GIANT LIGHTSABERS!!
Why, you might ask, would someone make these? WHY NOT?! Actually, the truth is, a company asked me to make an over the top Star Wars/Christmas themed display, and these were a part of it.
They are absolutely ridiculous, but they were one of the most fun projects, and videos, I’ve made in a long time. I think I might need to spend a little more time with projects that are just senseless fun!

Amsterdam is a city widely known for the crazy amount of ubiquitous bicycles that reside above ground, but less-publicized are the unfortunate ones that meet their end at the bottom of a canal. In 2011, Isabelle Harder captured fascinating footage of a giant claw machine perched atop a barge that was dredging bicycles up from canal floors.
Countless old bikes are dredged from Amsterdam canals using a crane and barge. How did hundreds of lost vintage Dutch bikes get in the canals… no one knows. Many treasures were discovered.
The Amsterdam municipality contracts with waste recycle companies to buy the metal debris that is periodically pulled from the canals by city workers. These barges and cranes are active almost every day due to the size and complexity of the canal system. Bikes, shopping carts, wagons, and even an occasional car are found. Because this is not an exact science, much metal debris lies undiscovered for decades before being fished out. Only when a canal is drained for extensive renovation is it completely emptied of all the metal waste. Some canals have not been fully emptied for over 400 years!
Thanks Jason Scott!
There were far too many scenes to cover in Star Wars Attack of the Clones. Like why doesn’t anyone follow the money trail when the clone army is discovered being ordered by a long dead jedi? Why don’t the Cloners Aliens ever call to confirm someone will come get their giant army after waiting 10 years to grow them? Why does everyone just let Dooku walk around? Why does OB-1 not mention that Dooku says the senate is being manipulated by the Dark Lord of the Sith? Why not make that public? The HISHE would be over 30 minutes long and we might have collapsed trying to build all of those scenes. So we hope you enjoy the scenes we chose. It was a very fun episode to work on.
