I've handpicked 7 TikToks. Let me know what you like best.

1. A scary tower (in Sri Lanka).

2. Nipa palm fruit.

3. Preschool Trump calls "fake news" on the teacher's announcement of "last day of school."

4. Life inside the Arctic Circle — sunlight in the middle of the night.

5. The street artist encounters a drain.

6. "you're breaking up with me but there's a squirrel outside eating at the squirrel table."

7. Hey, everybody, hi... it's the toast rack.

I have revised my dismissive yesterday's judgment about dcplateking; his voice and manner are irritating but I had to laugh at his delight and pride in choosing a particular slice of toast. The street artist gets the 'best', however, in spite of the fact that I stopped the video once the chalk started its chalk-on-sidewalk sound.

Ehh, toast gets cold faster on racks. Everyone knows that. Except the Brits.

Pile it up.

None are worthy.

I liked the last three - so amusing. Plus I understand how great toast can be with butter and the right jam. In the summer I buy fresh berries and boil them into to small amounts of jam - so good. It ruins you for the winter with store jam.

No real winners for me this time.

#5 was nice

#6 annoyed me because she was looking the opposite direction than the window.

I've seen that tower before. It's scary, but the fisheye lens makes it look moreso.

The palm fruit looks interesting. La Croix is always looking for new flavors.

Trump impression. Yawn.

Best part of the arctic circle vid is the cool dog.

Street artist vid showed me something - I've seen the forced perspective street art before but now I know how they draw them - with charcoal on a long stick. Neat.

More squirrel please.

Toast. This guy is way too excited about toast.

The Tower...NO THANKS!

I'm guessing they think toast gets soft piled up and they favor crunch over heat.

Watching the scary tower climb, I couldn’t stop thinking about the people who built it. I wouldn’t want to climb it, but somebody was up there with heavy tools, hauling cement, installing those guardrails I would be reluctant to trust.

gspencer said...

Tim, and among all the tools and material that were hauled up, no one thought to bring along a tape measure and a level.

Ambuluwawa Tower is located in the suburbs of Gampola Town in Sri Lanka.

Homer Simpson level of building something; e.g., spice rack,

Yes, all of our problems come from pieces of toast touching.

If only everyone had a toast rack.

Baby Trump is funny but goes on for too long.

Now do Baby Biden. If you dare.

"#6 annoyed me because she was looking the opposite direction than the window."

It's playing with point of view. "POV" appears on the screen. You're looking at her from his point of view and you see that she has a point of view (at the squirrel), so when we finally see the squirrel, it is from her point fo view. That is what she was seeing. So the camera is doing the right thing.

But there's a window to her left, and she keeps looking out to the right.

It looks likes they are in an average room, not a hallway or breezeway. A squirrel outside the window on the other side of the room would be darn near impossible to see.

I am a disaster always finding continuation problems in movies.

That’s casting a nice light on her face.

I see what you mean. It’s not about the squirrel but her. I just saw it as a room with windows on both sides.
