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:

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.

Brad Pitt Stops A Kid From Getting Crushed By Fans (Video)

This is kinda nice. Brad Pitt stops a kid from getting crushed by fans in Spain, or to use the lingua franca of the place where it happened, “Brad Pitt rescata a niña en rodaje de Allied”. Allied is the movie Mr. Pitt was filming, and he took a break in order to say hello to a crowd. More specifically, he waved at a rather large group of people who were clearly REALLY stoked to see him.

But perhaps they were a little bit too stoked. According to the story, and the video backs this up, a little girl was being crushed against the fence. Mr. Pitt saw this and had his bodyguards pick her up and pull her out of the crowd, then comforted her until medical staff arrived. Here’s the video.

I think this is an example of how having kids changes a person. Not that I don’t think Mr. Pitt would have done this before becoming a dad. But the behavior, to my eye, looks very parental. There are things that become instinctual after you have children of your own. In this case, that was a good thing.
