SuperSundayVideo-Week 13-Niladri Kumar on an Electric Sitar!

This week’s edition of the SuperSundayVideo was suggested to me by my friend Satish from SatishSays.com

I was fascinated when I first heard the term ‘electric sitar’. If you don’t know what a sitar is, jump over to youtube and search for ‘sitar’. Niladri Kumar has tweaked this traditional Indian string instrument. Check out both videos.

For the second video, you’ll have to head over to YouTube because embedding of that video has been disabled upon request. The music video is called Priority and can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQU5eGg8wcM. It has a Hindi intro to it, so just skip ahead if you don’t get a clue.

SuperSundayVideo-Week 11-Beijing’s Bird’s nest stadium

The Beijing olympics 2008 kicked off in grand style at 8 minutes past 8 on 08/08/08 at China’s National stadium popularly referred to as the ‘Bird’s nest’. This is week 11 of SuperSundayVideo and here is the entire episode of Discovery Channel’s Man Made Marvels program which shows the construction of the marvelous structure.

The entire episode has been divided into 5 parts. This has to be the longest SuperSundayVideo yet, but then the stadium deserves it! The stadium has a seating capacity of 91,000. It was built with 36 km (22.4 miles) of unwrapped steel, with a combined weight of 45,000 tonnes. Estimated cost of construction: $423 million!! Highly recommend everyone to watch all 5 videos but you could always jump directly to the last video.

SuperSundayVideo-Week 08-Will the new iPhone 3G blend??

WillitBlend.com has this uncanny knack of putting ‘things’ in the mixer blender. So what? Even your mom does it every day, huh? Well, if you look at their past videos you’ll know. In their recent past, the ‘things’ have been a tv remote, an elderly guy’s hearing aid, a Nintendo Wii remote, a Rhubic’s cube… and the latest thing to be blended – the new Apple Iphone 3G!!!

I have to warn you guys, this is not for the weak hearted!
