has apparently spent the last several weeks compiling 12 hour clips of various ambient (and some transient) sounds. Hits include 12 hours of keyboard typing
, a hair dryer
, and various alarm sounds,
each lasting for 12 hours.
But the real draw here is his collection of Extended Ambient Space Sounds.
Many of your favorite spaceship sounds are here, from both the Star Trek and Star Wars universes, as well as Alien and 2001.
Also notable: Jabba The Hutt laughing for 12 hours.
Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise sing "Let it Snow"
Credits mashups or remixes
are a Youtube meme with a simple concept: create a intro sequence for one show using the music and style of another show's credits.
Some drastically change the story
of a series, some play up similarities
between two shows, some provide a more glossy intro for shows that originally relied on a title card
or an unpopular credits sequence
, and some just seem to happen because people really like "Ballad of Serenity." [more inside]
At long last you can finally hear Six Pence None The Richer's 1997 hit "Kiss Me" the way it was intended to be heard, in the original Klingon.
Since it debuted on the blue
in '11 // Epic Rap Battles of History
preppin' // to score itself more than a billion views
// and become TopDog of the pack YouTube
Made by NicePeter
// (two improv comics by Maker
employed) // The series pits icons of legend renowned // in a slick-wit freestyle rap throwdown
With snappier writing, and better FX // online celebs
(and Google Ad checks) // The Epic Rap crew's halfway done with the brew // that is Epic Rap Battles of History Part Deux
The midseason's close? It comes out today. // In one corner: Santa Claus, fresh from his sleigh
And his prophet o' doom? "He ain't Mayan," ERBoH sez.

Turkish Star Trek.
For some reason, there's a one off Turkish cover version of The Man Trap
, that old episode of ST:TOS with the salt monster that leeches saline from your body with its fingertips. And while it's been mentioned before
, that was years ago, before the actual episode could be found on YouTube
In 2003, Paramount proposed redoing the special effects for the original "Star Trek" series and rereleasing the episodes as "Star Trek Enhanced"
. Two CGI firms redid the effects
for the teaser, the opening credits and title, and the first two acts of The Doomsday Machine
as a proof-of-concept with no changes to the acting or the story. Paramount ultimately decided not to pursue the project, but it's interesting to see how two different CGI firms handled the transporter, phasers, and starship effects.
Star Trek Kid?
One man video reconstruction of First Contact, the scene in which Alfre Woodard quotes Moby Dick at Picard. Interesting choice. YouTube link.
