Some people seem to have too much time on their hands, but I can’t complain about the results. This goes to show – it’s not just today’s young and hip that can dance.
In case you missed this in 2014, here is a terrific home Halloween light show, set to Queen’s famous BR – Well done!
Check out this OK Go video – uses awesome technology, including a Honda Uni-Cub and UAS (unmanned aerial system, i.e. “drone”) to shoot the entire video, half speed in one take. The imagination and coordination is amazing.

The phrase “Unicorns” (in reference to startup companies) has been around since 2013 when Cowboy Ventures tagged 39 startup companies with membership in the Unicorn Club. “Tech Unicorns” are billion-dollar tech startup companies that rocketed to fame (and fortune). Unicorns have launched at a rate of about 4 per year over the past decade. “Super-unicorn” is phrase used for startups that are worth more than $100B (Facebook).
Google (not a unicorn) the phrase, and you will find a number of articles from front-runner magazines and blogs. A complete list of Unicorn companies (now numbering 134) can be found here.

This is what can happen when you search for solutions. Kudos, Ms. Scott!
I don’t watch DWTS, and I never watched “Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire,” but this is charmingly cute and wonderfully well-done.
Worth a coffee break.
Thanks for expanding our reality.
