Zoom Into A Microchip

“The inside of a microchip is a mysterious thing. Here, we zoom into a microchip using a digital SLR camera then we transition to a scanning electron microscope, aka SEM. Although this is an older microchip, many of the same principles still apply to microchip design but with much, much smaller structures measured in nanometers instead of microns.” — NISENet

Underwater Skateboarding

“Th idea and reason behind this video was to prove the Puka ceramic bearings and Jaseboards bamboo decks could handle the “excessive moisture” that comes along with being submerged in a swimming pool for countless hours on end! We have skated these boards for the last two weeks after shooting the pool footage and the bearings are still spinning fabulously! Can we guarantee this will be everyones experience… nope but it has been ours so far.” — Jaseboards

Mamadou Diabate

“With his music, Mamadou Diabate carries the stories and traditions of his native Mali of West Africa. He is what the outside world call a “griot” and what his native people, the Manding, call a “jeli.” Mamadou is from a long line of jelis who perform at many rituals and celebrations in Mali, and with their artistry they traditionally have carried recent news as well as ancient history to far-flung listeners. Mamadou tells that all important events in Malian culture are marked by jeli performances, and the ritual significance of the performance is ultimately more important than the entertainment value of the music, although both are greatly appreciated.” — ListenForLife1

Young Kanye West Rapping!

“The original location of Fat Beats launched on July 14, 1994 which means FB just turned 20 years old! Business was doing so well 2 years in that Joseph Abajian decided to move the store from it’s small 9th St. basement space into a 2nd floor location on 6th Avenue. August 1996 (day?) was the grand opening of the 406 6th Avenue location. It was also the beginnings of our independent movement which had recently started bubbling about a year before. Yesterday I started converting old Hi8 video tapes to DVD and came across some interesting footage from that day. Now we had a lot of the usual suspects in the place that day… and many, many more. But what took me by surprise was the appearance of this 19 year old kid who at that time nobody knew. Now I’ve had this person as a guest on my radio show years later, but it’s pretty crazy to see this footage in ’96 and think ‘damn, this dude was in my house then?’ and not even know.” — itsdjeclipse
