Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek: Voyage to Vengeance



If Quentin Tarantino directed the next Star Trek feature film, it would be the weirdest, bloodiest, most intense Star Trek ever! Luckily, we have some footage that fits the bill in this trailer. This is not for children. Nerdist presents a vision of Kirk, Spock, Scotty, Bones, and the rest of the crew in a grindhouse B-movie you can't wait to see. (via Digg)

Snowboarders Try to Use a T-Bar



If you're used to a regular skilift, trying to get up a snowy mountain with a T-bar is challenging. It's even harder on a snowboard. But when you are an inexperienced snowboarder, it's almost impossible. These guys are out on their first snowboarding expedition at Nevis Range Mountain Experience in Torlundy, Scotland. On the one hand, it's nice to find out how incompetent you are before you get to the top of the mountain. On the other hand, you're now stuck in viral video with the videographer laughing at you, leading the internet audience to do the same. (via Tastefully Offensive)

Boomwhackers



This video was presented as "bro's night out," which makes it seem like a silly game, but watch and listen. These guys are making serious music! Well, maybe not 'serious' music, it's the theme from Knight Rider followed by the theme from The Flintstones, but they do it well. 

They are playing musical instruments called boomwhackers, or tubes that are tuned to a musical pitch to be played like bells. The group is Louie's Cage Percussion, made up of classically-trained musicians from Austria.
Named after the Monkey King Louie and the composer John Cage, this percussion group consists of six talented young musicians in their twenties. They are some of the youngest members of renowned Austrian orchestras including the Vienna Volksoper, the Lower Austria Tonkuenstler Orchestra and the Graz Opera and play all repertoires of classical music. Besides their studies of classical music, they have always been interested in jazz, rock and electronic music and have played in various bands and broadened their knowledge of various musical genres.
You can get an idea of how boomwhackers work from an extended cut of one of their practice sessions. Now watch a stage performance from Louie's Cage Percussion.

Are You a Millennial?



Millennials don't want to be lumped into a group. And they don't want to be labeled -or do they? These folks don't hesitate to tell you how they are special and different, and they'll take a label as long as they get to choose it -and as long as it isn't Millennial. Not wanting to be seen as a Millennial is the most Millennial thing there is. I can't really blame them. Generations weren't as labeled and pigeonholed when we Boomers were young and lumped together.
