YouTube user lem0ns2lime aka Carlos C.
likes supercuts. Let's start with Muse - Explorers
(5:49), which was cut down to 20 seconds without lyrics
, just breaths. Then the video of Muse in concert was truncated down to 15 seconds long
. That really built up the tension and energy, so let's amp it up with a bunch of gasping WWF and WCW wrestlers from the 1980s
), and there's the sequel, Absolutely No Words 2
. If you like your wrestlers with laughing (via rough edits), you might enjoy Jim the Laugh Machine
(aka Jim the Anvil Neidhart, with extra laughter).
'This elegantly beautiful supercut
on “the tactile world of Robert Bresson
” by Kogonada
for Criterion shows the great French director’s notoriously precise skill is applied even at the slightest hand gesture. There are no faces in this video yet the drama of these scenes is palpable.'

indexed every cultural reference from The Office
, over 1,300 mentions across all 190 episodes, and used Wikipedia to find their year of origin. With the help of programmer Aaron Rasmussen
, he built the The Office Time Machine
to navigate it all, year-by-year, in historical order. [more inside]

It's been nearly two decades since that glorious savanna sunrise, and once again The Lion King
is at the top of the box office
. It's a good chance to revisit what made the original the capstone of the Disney Renaissance
, starting with the music. Not the gaudy show tunes or the Elton John ballads, but the soaring, elegiac score by Hans Zimmer which, despite winning an Oscar, never saw a full release outside of an unofficial bootleg
Luckily, it's unabridged and high-quality, allowing one to lay Zimmer's haunting
tracks alongside the original video
), revealing the subtle leitmotifs and careful matching of music and action.
In addition, South African collaborator Lebo M
wove traditional Zulu chorals into the score, providing veiled commentary
on scenes like this
; his work was later expanded
into a full album
, the Broadway stage show
, and projects closer to his heart
. Speaking of expanded works, there were inevitable sequels -- all of which you can experience with The Lion King: Full Circle
), a fan-made, three-hour supercut of the original film and its two follow-ups.
