Ship Cook Rescued After Spending 60 Hours Inside Sunk Capsized Tugboat

Story from Reuters:

"After two days trapped in freezing cold water and breathing from an air bubble in an upturned tugboat under the ocean, Harrison Okene was sure he was going to die. Then a torch light pierced the darkness.

Ship's cook Okene, 29, was on board the Jascon-4 tugboat when it capsized on May 26 due to heavy Atlantic ocean swells around 30 km (20 miles) off the coast of Nigeria, while stabilising an oil tanker filling up at a Chevron platform. Of the 12 people on board, divers recovered 10 dead bodies while a remaining crew member has not been found.

Somehow Okene survived, breathing inside a four foot high bubble of air as it shrunk in the waters slowly rising from the ceiling of the tiny toilet and adjoining bedroom where he sought refuge, until two South African divers eventually rescued him."

The actual depth at which the upside down tugboat settled was only 30m, but still that would have been enough to cause him decompression sickness if he came right up.

It's an amazing story. The ordeal this guy went through. For more than two days, he was in total darkness, partially immersed in cold ocean water, without food or water, inside an air pocket he had no idea how long would last, not knowing if anyone was looking for him. The things that must have gone through his mind...

Here is the amazing video of his discovery and rescue. It's worth watching from the beginning. Apparently, the diver's squeaky voice is due to the fact that they breath a mix of oxygen and helium.

Amazing Beatboxing Baby

If she can do that now that she's only one-year-old, imagine what she'll be able to do in the future.


2013 News Bloopers Compilation

It's that time of the year again.


Well, since we're on the subject, might as well remind ourselves of 2012...

...and 2011 (although some of the clips are definitely a few years decades older).

Helicopter-Assisted Christmas Tree Harvest In Oregon

I had no idea.

From the "about" section of the video:

"Christmas Tree harvesting at Noble Mountain Christmas Tree Farm in Oregon. Pilot Dan Clark flying a Northwest Helicopters, LLC 206B3 Jetranger November of 2008. 

Oregon is the nation's biggest producer and exporter of Christmas trees, selling about 7.3 million trees a year, more than twice that of No. 2 North Carolina. The holiday trees represent a $101 million industry in Oregon."

As many commenters on Youtube mention, he's probably paid by the quantity of trees he transports and not by the hour.

Also, many mention that it's not as grueling (inertia-wise) as it looks.

Here's another video (probably not of the same pilot, obviously) from a... more sunny day, showing the cockpit view.

Still pretty impressive.

Cars of San Diego

We've seen the work by Cy Kuckenbaker before on this blog.

Back then, he had put together all the landings and departures from San Diego airport in two short videos.

His newest piece of work involved taking 4 minutes of raw footage from a San Diego highway (California State Route 163) and organizing the cars that passed by based on colour.

From the creator:

"The source footage for this video is a 4-minute shot from the Washington Street bridge above State Route 163 in San Diego captured at 2:39pm Oct 1, 2013. My aim is to reveal the color palette and color preferences of contemporary San Diego drivers in addition to traffic patterns and volumes. There are no CG elements, these are all real cars that have been removed from one sample and reorganized."

First, here's the raw footage:

And here's what he did with it:

Very impressive.

Dogs Too Scared of Cats To Pass By Them

Here at KappaD, we know what the internet wants.

And dogs.

So we provide.

Cats are evil.


A Unique Truck Ad

The following commercial by Volvo, featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme, was posted on Youtube about a month ago and it soon went viral.

From the "about" section of the video:

"This live test was set up to demonstrate the precision and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering -- a world first technology that makes the new Volvo FM easier to drive.

Filmed in Spain on a closed-off landing field at sunrise in one take."

In one take... IN ONE TAKE? Are you kidding me?
And surely there must have been some safety equipment. A net? A rope?
I can't believe the 53-year old (although he looks older in this in my opinion) Jean-Claude Van Damme would do this type of split without making sure that all necessary safety precautions had been taken. Even at these speeds, a fall would have been nasty.

In any case, never one to be outdone, Chuck Norris (or maybe "Chuck Norris") chose to use his annual Christmas message to respond to Jean-Claude Van Damme's provocation.

I wonder how long it will take the real Chuck Norris to claim copyright infringement...

What Does the Fox Say?

I know this is old for many out there (it came out early September), but I discovered it just yesterday. 288 million views and still going (Gangnam Style, by the way, has reached 1.85 billion).

I kinda like it actually. Catchy tune.

Thankfully, it doesn't take itself seriously.
It is by Ylvis, a Norwegian comedic duo (they are in fact brothers) and is intended as a critique/parody of contemporary club/pop music. 

Agreed. Change the lyrics and this could have easily been a hit by Pitbull or Katy Perry.

New Orleans (tilt-shift)

New Orleans is the most populous city in the US state of Louisiana (but not the capital, as is so often the case).

As always, make sure to watch in HD.

I was there for a couple of days recently. It was nice. Very touristy and pretty safe. The French Quarter was interesting, but not as large as I had expected. It is cool how that area's Franco-Spanish past (the architecture at least) has been largely preserved. I tried to imagine how it would have been in the city during hurricane Katrina. In general, I think you can see it all in 2-3 days. If you're a jazz music fan (which I am not) you might appreciate it more.

Street Basketball Stereotypes

Anyone whose played street basketball can definitely relate to this video.

And I'm not only talking about recognizing these characters in your friends, but in yourself too.
I'm looking at you KappaD "My Bad" guy.

1994 Was A Good Year

In terms of pop culture at least.
And it was... aaaargh! 20 years ago...

It's time to reminisce with this recap by Slacktory.

Cat Overestimates Its Abilities

Music is "Sail" by AWOLNATION.

This looks like Japan (and indeed, the original cat video appears to be Japanese, where, by the way, it says in the video info that the cat was unhurt following its... predicament).

It would have been even funnier if it had said "Fail" at the right moment.

Go Ahead. Knock yourself out...!

All Nuclear Weapons Detonations Ever Conducted

Today I learned that since 1998 the only country to have conducted nuclear tests (3 to be exact) is North Korea.

Between 1945 and 1998, however, there had been a total of 2053 nuclear explosions/tests (of different yields, different types of bombs, underwater, underground, on the surface, in the atmosphere, etc., if there is etc.). The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT, of which North Korea is not a signatory, as well as Pakistan and India) is mainly responsible for the halt in nuclear tests.

Below is a video made by Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto showing where each nuclear test was conducted and by whom between 1945 and 1998. Apart from the two in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, which were used during war, all the rest are nuclear weapons tests.

This video made me interested in finding videos of some nuclear explosions.
I found quite a few on user's atomcentral's account on Youtube.

First off, here is the Trinity test, the first ever detonation of a nuclear device in July 1945.

Here's one from 1951 in Nevada, as seen from above.

In 1953, they even made an atomic cannon. But, it was soon made obsolete by advances in rocketry. Here you can also see the effects on nearby houses and vehicles. It appears as if the paint on vehicles evaporates.

Of course, as we know from that movie where they rape Indiana Jones (I'm looking at you "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"), all you need to do to survive a nuclear blast is go inside a fridge (a sturdy one, like the ones made in the 50s).

In 1954, the Castle Bravo test involved the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated by the United States, a hydrogen bomb with a yield of 15 megatons of TNT. It happened at Bikini atoll in the Pacific ocean. 

Here we see five guys in 1957 enjoying themselves far too much as they stand at ground zero, while a nuclear weapon (in the form of an air-to-air missile) is detonated 10.000ft above their heads.

Finally, in 1958 an underwater detonation at Enewatak atoll in the Pacific ocean.

For no particular reason, I only used detonations by the United States here.
You can easily find ones from other countries on Youtube too.
Let's hope we never witness one first-hand.

Hey fellas! Wanna see some magic?

Back in 1997, David Blaine became famous through his Street Magic TV Specials.

Here's a taste:

You can very easily find many videos of his performances online and although they are undoubtedly very impressive, they are not the subject of this post.

Here, I bring to your attention this brilliant 4-part parody of David Blaine's Street Magic.


(they're all great, but part 2 is my favorite)
(don't mind the picture quality in the first three, they are from 2006-2007)

GTA V Is So Realistic...!

I hope you bring GTA V to PC, Rockstar.
You'd better bring this to PC, Rockstar.
Don't pull a Red Dead Redemption on us, Rockstar.

I believe I've made myself clear.

Pinky and the Brain Tongue Twister

I remember seeing this as a kid, when it first came out in the early 90s.




KS: I am honoured by your visit.  Let me show you our assembly line.
First, sheets of sheer synthetic sheepskin are slit into several Kicky-Sack shoe shapes in 
shapely shoe sizes by six sitting sheet slitters.  

B: I only see five sitting sheet slitters. 

KS: The sixth sitting sheet slitter's sick.  His son Sammy's subbing 'til the sick sixth sitting
sheet slitter's back, sitting pretty.

P: You're not the sheet slitter?

S: No, I'm the sheet slitter's son.  

P:  Well.... You keep on slitting sheets until the sheet slitter comes. Haheheheh!  Whooohaaah.
 [View of a machine labelled "Sheet Slitter Shoe Shaper".]
KS: The Shoe Shaper then shapes the slit synthetic sheepskin sheets,
and shoots out shoes through the chute.

KS: Now, this is Mr. Plunkett, the new khaki sock plucker.  (I had to fire our previous sock plucker.
He had a bit of an attitude.)

B:  So, you sacked the cocky khaki Kicky-Sack sock plucker?

KS:  The second cocky khaki Kicky-Sack sock plucker I sacked since the sixth sitting sheet
slitter got sick.
[Lights dim. Machine whirs and slows down.]
KS: Whoops!  Don't worry; just an electrical problem.  One of the Kicky-Sack sack pickers will have
to flick the plug.  

P: Not the khaki sock plucker?

KS: Oh, my, no!  The Kicky-Sack sack pickers flick the plug. The khaki sock plucker can't reach
the socket over the latex child perambulator fenders we use to line the treadmill.

B: It might make more sense to have the sixth sitting sheet slitter's son flick the plug, if the sack
pickers and the sock pluckers are behind the rubber baby buggy bumpers.
[Sammy flicks the plug.  Everything whirs back up.]
KS: I never thought of that! 

B: Now, Pinky, here is the plan.  Remember, every step must be performed with precision!
You must slit the sixth sick sheet slitter's son's sheet, secure it next to the toy boat from 
the Hackensack Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kickers' picnic in Secaucus, stretch it past 
the sack pickers' station and the sock plucker's chute, and pick a sack, pluck a sock, 
and flick the plug,so I can put the pea in the plucked sock with the picked sack for ballast 
and bounce it off the rubber baby buggy bumper, into the Parker Packard purple pewter pressure pump. 
Is that understood?

Mia's Brilliant Stanley Steemer Variations

So, in case you didn't know (I certainly didn't before this), "Stanley Steemer" is a US carpet (and general home surface) cleaning company which uses a characteristic jingle in its advertisements (see below at 0:25).

In the following very cool and entertaining video, Youtube user Mia Gentile performs the Stanley Steemer jingle in a wide array of musical and dance variations. At 1:20-1:34 my personal favorite (with 1:08 to 1:19 a close second).

Token Halloween(ish) Post

Halloween? Meh... Not really a fan.

In any case, I don't know if this was shot on or near Halloween (about 20 years ago, judging from the footage quality and general surroundings), but this guy's costume is brilliant.

I hope this isn't a repost.
Google assures me that the word "Logorama" has never been mentioned in this blog. Until now.
I first saw this in 2009, but I have no idea why I didn't post it back then.

From Wikipedia:

"Logorama is a 16-minute French animated film written and directed by H5/François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain, and produced by Autour de Minuit. The film depicts events in a stylized Los Angeles, and is told entirely through the use of more than 2,500 contemporary and historical logos and mascots. The film won the Prix Kodak at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 82nd Academy Awards."


Caution! Some language and violence. This isn't your average kids cartoon.

Logorama from Human Music & Sound Design on Vimeo.

Absolutely brilliant!
It deserves to get the HD treatment at some point.

European Monuments and Buildings by Night (time-lapse)

Luke Shepard, the creator of Nightvision describes it as:

"...a celebration of the brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe. Over the course of three months I journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way. Comprised of thousands of carefully taken photographs, strung together and stabilized in post-production, Nightvision aims to inspire appreciation for these man-made landmarks."

Watching in full screen and HD is strongly recommended.

World War II In Europe (Day By Day As It Happened)

Tomorrow, October 28th, is the 73rd anniversary from the onset of the Greco-Italian war (part of World War II), so I thought I'd post this lovely video showing the day by day territorial changes occurring throughout Europe (as well as parts of Africa and the Middle East) during World War II.

I can't be sure there are no mistakes in this, but I'm pretty certain if there are, they are minor. 
It was created using MS Paint, so a lot of time and effort has gone into this.

Who Murdered Lord Smithe?

That's the question everyone who posts this video poses.

But, I won't lie to you. That question is not the real point of this video.
There's something a lot more disturbing going on.

Just watch.

P.S. I'm back from a forced hiatus. God allowing, it will not be needed again.

Everything Wrong With Pirates Of The Caribbean - The Curse Of The Black Pearl

Long post title, but it says it all really.

Cinema Sins counts the sins found in Pirates Of The Caribbean - The Curse Of The Black Pearl and, in the end, I think they're pretty lenient in their judgement.

OK, perhaps we have to cut the movie some slack, considering it is a comedy (that doesn't actually take itself too seriously) and is the most entertaining in the series. The other two are infested with sins.

Correction. There are actually three sequels! I lost faith in these movies after watching the imbecilic third one, that I didn't realize there was a fourth (why was there a fourth? and why was it a commercial success? why humanity? why do you give your hard-earned money to these lazy movie industry cretins? why?).

Animals. Talking.

Here's another one I can't believe I haven't posted before.

A hilarious clip from the BBC series "Walk on the Wild Side", where animals are voiced-over resulting in some truly funny sketches.

I can't believe they missed the opportunity to name it "Talk on the Wild Side".

A Pill That Lowers IQ

"Did you ever notice how many stupid people surround you?
If you didn't, then you might be one of them, in which case you can turn off this video and carry on with your life."

"Idiots and morons are the majority of the world's population. They're not suddenly going to get smarter or start acting reasonably. It's YOU who'll have to change".

"Life is easier and a much happier place when you're dumb".

I'll stop here and let you watch the rest.

So many truths in this video. I'm tempted, but no thanks. I'll carry this burden till the end.

And yet... they missed.

Video from a Greek second division football game between Veria and Levadiakos in 2010.

The players of Veria manage to hit the crossbar once and goal posts twice, before wasting the opportunity (they didn't pay for it in the end, as they won 1-0).

We've seen something similar previously in a game between AEK and Olympiakos in 2007.

Too Much Green Screen and CGI!

I always wondered why passersby to a film/TV series crew shooting a scene in the street are so oblivious to what is happening.

I mean... many scenes take place on busy city streets or at sites teeming with tourists. 
Places which are practically impossible to close off even for a few hours in order to film a scene. 
And yet no one stops to stare at the big (or smaller) stars. 
No one is even a tiny bit curious as to how a scene is shot. 

Could all these people be so self-disciplined or just indifferent?
Could all these people (sometimes hundreds of them) be extras?

No. The answer is green screen (and CGI).  

As you can see from the following, very enlightening video which contains scenes from well-known TV series (I recognized Ugly Betty, Heroes, Grey's Anatomy, Monk, among them), street scenes are at best filmed on a closed off street, and at worst, completely inside a studio filled with green screens.

So much fakery.

The video is from 2009, so green screen and CGI technology must have advanced even further since then. However, it makes me happy that when I watch contemporary American TV series, I can at least still detect this artificial and confined feel in most of them.


I just found the 2012 video of the same visual effects company (Stargate Studios).
They are just getting better and better at this.

People Who Became Classic Internet Memes

Let's go back to the "classics".

Here are three cases of people who become internet celebrities and whom, surprisingly, I haven't featured here previously.

Starting with this lady, who became an internet sensation after she described her harrowing escape from a fire.

1) Sweet Brown - Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!

This guy also became famous following an interview on a local news channel.

2) Antoine Dodson - They're Raping Everybody Out Here!

Antoine Dodson capitalized on his success by selling t-shirts and merchandise containing his quotes, as well as receiving royalties from the "Bed Intruder Song" sold through iTunes.

In January 2010, Youtube user Hungrybear9562 (real name Paul Vasquez) uploaded a video of himself sounding rather ecstatic at the sight of a double rainbow at Yosemite National Park.
The video was "discovered" and went viral 7 months later.

I don't think I've ever seen a dog obeying verbal commands so well.

I'm sure they had (yap, it has died) practiced this lots of times, but still, it's very impressive.

Here's a video with more info on Skidboot's life and his relationship with his owner.

Skidboot died in 2007 at age 15.

There is a page devoted to him and there is hope that one of his younger relatives will exhibit at least some of his characteristics.

Driving Into An Arizona Haboob

From trusted Wikipedia:

A haboob (Arabic: هَبوب‎ "blasting/drafting") is a type of intense dust storm carried on an atmospheric gravity current.

The music is atmospheric, but perhaps a bit too much.
I mean, it's an intriguing meteorological phenomenon, but not the prelude to the Apocalypse.


It's well worth watching everything in HD.

Here's the same haboob from July 5th 2011 engulfing Pheonix, Arizona.

Skilled Ferry Captain

This is a video from April 7th 2013, showing the very skilled captain of the ferry "Adamantios Korais", under quite bad weather conditions, coming into the port of the Greek island of Sikinos, unloading-loading, and leaving within 7.5 minutes.

Everybody waiting to board (especially the lady with the bags and coat) must have got drenched. And imagine the rest of the trip with the ship going up and down. Gives me nausea just thinking about it.

"Informer" (Snow) vs "Imposter" (Jim Carrey)

A few days ago I rediscovered a song that was a big hit when I was young in the early 90s.

It's "Informer" by Snow and I doubt any of us back then had any idea what the song was about.

Personally, I just thought it went something like this:

"In forma, you know sadarma stormy, I go blum, Aliki bonboner"

(Aliki is in capitals as it is the name Alice in Greek)

Along with the original song, through the power of the internet, I discovered Jim Carrey's parody of "Informer", titled "Imposter", which is still funny twenty years on.
