50 best music videos of 2006

The 50 best music videos of 2006. What more is there to say.

Line Rider

Jason Kottke has a fun little post on Line Rider, a new online game/art form. This video is great.

Stephen Wiltshire

Stephen Wiltshire is an amazing autistic artist. In this video, he draws a panorama of Rome from memory. For more details, I highly recommend reading Oliver Sacks’ book An Anthropologist on Mars, which has a chapter devoted to Stephen.

Flight patterns

Beautiful visualizations of flight patterns across the US.

Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins on TedTalks explains how our size affects our model of the world. One idea that particularly struck me is that something as fundamental as the concept of “solid” might simply be a useful interpretation, biologically evolved. If you’re not doing so already, do yourself a favor and watch all the TedTalks — they’re solid gold.

Fun with coins

My friend Clay clearly has too much time on his hands: he’s making awesome art with pennies. Turns out that pennies get darker over time, so with a sufficient collection you can create an image. He also knows how to draw Guernica. More fun with coins.

The internal combustion engine

Video about how an internal combustion works. The wonders of technology!

New Bravia commercial

Another wonderful Sony Bravia ad — although I still like the Balls commercial better, mainly because of the music.


A couple of good commercials: solar power and human katamari. And as a bonus, a little something about truth in advertising.
