Watch it now. You want to. I want you to. I wish to bring you joy.

And now I bring you sadness, or at least not-joy. You’ll have to wait until May 5, 2017 to see the movie. Oh well. Deal with it.

Holy Crap James Harrison Is Strong (Video)

In case you didn’t know, NFL players are not like the rest of us. (Unless you happen to be an NFL player, of course.) Most of them are bigger, stronger, and faster. Also stronger. Have I mentioned stronger? Here’s a video of Pittsburgh Steelers‘ linebacker James Harrison throwing his children into the pool.

James…. I think Henry had more fun watching this one ?

A video posted by James Harrison (@jhharrison92) on

I mean… wow. One commenter summed it up thusly:

alexweatherly @teeeeeker he throws a kid higher than I can throw a balloon

Yeah. That’s about all you need to say.

You can check out Mr. Harrison’s Instagram page for more things you probably can’t do, many of them involving epic Feats of Strength.

Sorry, gotta post this now:

ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story Trailer Hits All The Right Notes

So you may have heard about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the latest Star Wars movie. It comes out in December. Here’s the trailer. Prepare to feel nostalgic.

DaddyTips Featured Video

Am I right or am I right? They do a damn fine job of appealing to both us old folks (ahem) and the new generation of Star Wars fans. This particular video has both the “isn’t it cool that we’re making a new Star Wars movie?” and the actual trailer. The movie itself looks pretty good. I hope it is since I’ll wind up seeing it anyway.

This is Live. No. Really. Sort of. (DaddyTube)

This video, of Hatsune Miku, a Japanese Vocaloid star (?), blew my mind. You have to watch long enough to really get the effect I got. I don’t want to spoil it but I will tell you that this is a live concert. Watch a bit of it. Hell, watch the whole thing, it’s under 3 minutes.

Did you see what I saw? Actual real-live musicians playing along with a hologram? In front of an audience of actual humans?

Wow. Just… wow.

On the one hand, it’s End Times stuff. But the technology behind it is fascinating. There is a Vocaloid Keytar! (Warning: the video is very strange and includes a person in a dinosaur suit, dancing.) It goes deep.

I haven’t found anything that indicates there are any English versions. However, listening to a couple of songs (literally a couple, I only checked out two, both by Hatsune Miku, who is not a real person but performs with a live band) I’ve decided that it isn’t as bad as some current pop music. Plus you don’t have to worry about lyrics like “brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack” because it’s mostly in Japanese.

Not too bad, right? I mean, for pop music. It depends on how you feel about that sort of thing.

Mostly it was seeing the real musicians performing alongside a hologram that freaked me out.

h/t to the folks who showed this to me, one of whom was Lucas Gonze and the other of whom was Tom.
