DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET TV

I’ve been a DirecTV subscriber since about their first half-year on the street. Twenty years ago. Done a little beta-testing, now and then, with a user forum. They’re technically ahead of the competition all of the time.

Nice to be able to say the same about their social maturity.

Thanks, Ursarodinia

The Bárðarbunga eruption — from inside the Volcano

Iceland’s Bárðarbunga eruption has unleashed a huge quantity of lava — enough to create a landmass the size of Manhattan. What would it be like to watch that terrifying explosion from inside the volcano’s cone? Now you can see for yourself…

Here’s the whole video, as shot via drone by Eric Cheng of camera drone manufacturers, DJI. Cheng explains in a making of video that getting the footage resulted in a melted camera face. The SD card, however, survived, giving this footage possibly the most legit claim to the phrase “face-meltingly awesome” ever.

Wow!

Thanks, Mike

Gorilla Reunion

After raising a Gorilla in an English zoo, Damian Aspinall ventured out to the jungle where it was released to try to catch a glimpse of him, five years later. Not expecting the Gorilla, “Kwibi”, to recognize him, he was in for a major shock when they crossed paths.

What happened next was an amazing display of affection and shows that love can transcend boundaries, whether it be size, shape, race, or even species. If it put a smile on your face, as it did to me, share this amazing reunion between father and “child”.

Thanks, Ursarodinia

Ready for a cute overload?

Read about this, yesterday. Only saw stills available in BBC coverage. Baby seal joining surfers off the Northumberland coast.

Apparently some of the news channels in the UK copped @matthew stanley’s original GoPro video posted on YouTube and ran it. So, now, TV stations with mutual agreements around the world have picked it up.

I hope commercial stations give him a cut of whatever advert revenue they make from the segment.

And that baby seal rocks! :)
