    This is a time lapse video created by Laurin Döpfner by sanding down different objects (including a piece of wood, wall plug, analog camera, walnut and animal skull) 0.5mm at a time, and taking a picture after each run. The results are mesmerizing. You really just have to wat... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of a giant supercell storm in Wyoming. What the hell is a supercell? Well, contrary to what my dick of a roommate tried to convince me, it's not a new efficient battery. He's a filthy liar, so I threw one of his shoes over the balcony while he was in the... / Continue →

    So it's April Fools' Day and my inbox is jam-packed with fake stories people either think are real or are trying to trick me into posting. I've been sifting through them all morning. The only April Fools' prank worth pulling involves faking your own death. So unless you're w... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of Youtuber and LEGO fanatic Mike (aka BricksNerd) building the new 2,532 piece LEGO Simpsons house set. I don't really have much else to say except 1. I wonder if it qualifies for the BJ contest and 2. I just watched the whole thing and now I don't feel l... / Continue →

    This is a month long time-lapse of artist Kyle Lambert fingerpainting an ultra-realistic Morgan Freeman using the iPad app Procreate. Me? I've procreated before. Jk jk, amateurcreated. It was awkward and I didn't get paid. Also, I bet this painting actually IS a photograph... / Continue →

    This is a video featuring a bunch of different time-lapses created in and around Los Santos in Grand Theft Auto V. It's really a credit to the game developers' attention to detail to see how smoothly and realistically the in-game environments change throughout the day. It's l... / Continue →

    This is 'Danielle', a video by Anthony Cerniello of a face aging sixty years in five minutes. It was made using a ton of photographs that were taken of similar looking family members at a family reunion, and the marvel of modern morphing technology. Cool, now show me what it ... / Continue →

    This is a news report from the BBC about scientists tracking snail movement using LEDs taped to their shells. The scientists discovered snails were able to move, on average, about one meter an hour, which I feel like is information we probably already knew. I suspect there wa... / Continue →

    This is time-lapse video made by photographer Michael Chung during the August 12th peak of the Perseid meteor shower featuring an exploding meteor. Granted an exploding UFO would have been cooler, but maybe next year. I'm joking, there will be no next year. At least not if I ... / Continue →

    This is a stop motion video made by 3-D chalk artist Chris Carlson of Donkey Kong sitting on a set a set of "impossible stairs" (Penrose stairs) and watching a barrel travel around them till it comes back and knocks him off. The beginning of the video is actually a time-lapse ... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video of Youtuber AmputeeOT fashioning herself a prosthetic leg out of LEGO bricks. It's a LEGO leg! It really got me thinking -- it's amazing how most of us go out of my way to AVOID stepping on LEGO bricks, and here she is PURPOSEFULLY doing it. That r... / Continue →

    This is a time lapse video of iron-infused silly putty swallowing a rare earth magnet over the span of an hour and a half (similar to this one I posted a while back but different because that one I posted a long time ago and this one I'm posting today). It's the kind of thing ... / Continue →

    Remember the 400,000 piece LEGO Hogwarts build by Alice Finch? Well this is a time lapse of its assembly. Not the entire build mind you, just putting together the predominately per-assembled pieces for display at the Emerald City Comicon. A time-lapse of the actual build, go... / Continue →

    This is a series of worthwhile time-lapse videos of earth taken from aboard the International Space Station. I...still can't believe that thing's actually up there. The sun either. You can't even see the wires holding it up! "Tell me you're joking." Haha, it's fishing line... / Continue →

    This is a short video (WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN EVEN SHORTER -- skip to 1:30 for the good stuff to start) created from a series of HDR time-lapse photographs by Patryk Kizny called 'The Chapel'. The star of the film is, get this -- an old chapel. One that's falling apart in Pola... / Continue →

    Seen here set ablaze after some space-camper failed to extinguish their lunar fire, the moon was in rare form last night during the eclipse. Sadly, despite the spectacular show the man in the moon did NOT score any dates, which explains why he was masturbating when I woke up t... / Continue →

    Note: Very worthwhile video is after the jump. Feel free to skip around, but do not -- I repeat -- DO NOT run around the pool. This is an amazing time-lapse video of a shuttle launch that shows a lot of the behind-the-scenes prep that goes into mounting that bitch on its boos... / Continue →

    Nathan Sawaya, a man best known for building the hell out of things with LEGO blocks, has created a fully functional cello out of the modular plastic bits. No word on what it sounds like, but if I had to guess, I'd say not good. But who am I to judge? I mean, BESIDES BEING T... / Continue →

    This is some time lapse footage of the LA wildfires as shot by photographer Brandon Riza. As you will see, they are super smokey. And not smokey like "and the bandit" either. Like fire-smokey. And where there's smoke there's....say -- mind if I hit that? Fun fact: Smokey t... / Continue →
