Dancing lessons from James Brown, water balloons popping in space, chicken and waffles on a stick, a sweet badminton rally, and a British guy finding the Wolf Eel. Some awesome links for an awesome day.

Today in 1894, Thomas Edison made the first copyrighted film. It looks super hipster. Come on, Thomas. [via GOOD]

Betty White painting the IKEA monkey? Take a look at the restoration process of a painting that bares a striking resemblance to the now famous meme. and tune in to "Hot In Cleveland" on Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 10 p.m. EST on TV Land.[via Huffington Post

It's the little things in life that keep us going. And for Aleksander Gamme, Norwegian Explorer, finding some Cheez Doodles he placed in a pit stop on a trek in Antarctica made a huge difference. Keep on keepin' on, Aleksander. [via Huffington Post

This ain't no joke. The Party Python is 100% real, 100% delicious, and 100% for sale. Vat19

Doing some good with 100 bucks, winning some bets, and making a Wes Anderson Star Wars trailer. Plus, a 26-pound gummy snake, a new Hitchcock trailer, the most popular music cities, and an awesome photo book. Nice.

Some guys throwing basketballs into hoops from really long range on a baseball field, a record-setting zombie walk, a Sufjan music video, a Skittle sorting machine, a new clip from Portlandia, a way to tag your friend's really dirty car without getting dirty yourself, and a Magic Schoolbus movie trailer. That's a lot to take in, I know. Divide and conquer.

A really expensive letter that John Lennon wrote to Eric Clapton, a terracotta pot that doubles as a grill, a Sufjan cover of "The Star Spangled Banner," the first ever Bob Dylan Facebook status update, a record player that plays paper, and a tiny kitty getting blow dried in slow motion. Woah.

A new Mumford video, a giant Gollum statue in an airport, a man taking a robot leg to the 103rd flor, a bunch of moleskine planners, and people riding slip n' slides into kiddie pools. Happy Monday!

The first silent political ad, free temporary hosuing, sock insurance, Stephen Colbert having some fun with David Byrne and St. Vincent, and an awesome time lapse video of nature. Lots and lots of Internet goodness.

New Andrew Bird, a little Reformation polka, a concert film from Mumford and Sons, an app that hides all those pesky political Facebook updates, an awesome Halloween costume, a Hobbit-themed airline safety video, The Buddhist Rapper, and, of course, the top ten ways to smash a pumpking.

I know, that's a lot to take in.

Google StreetView is in the Grand Canyon, a video tries to explain why the moon looks so big sometimes, a space shuttle gets shuttled across Los Angeles, Jon Stewarts talks with veterans about job qualifications, and Richard Nixon looks like a hipster. Woah!

Videochat karaoke, dogs underwater, an Internet college sweatshirt, and "Emergency Compliment" posters. The Internet is full of awesomeness.

Best places for a Halloween party, Stephen Colbert and The Hobbit, some sweet glass anatomical models, a green auditorium, and a really fashionable dog. Good day.

Babies eating lemons, the future plays out, a backpack that gives back, and a heft case of First World Problems (FWP).

Sufjan and Bon Iver reveal some cool projects. LEGO movies are everywhere. Disney Princesses are hipsters. People are dancing to get Cokes. And — shocker — some dogs feel the same way humans do about getting out of bed. These links are awesome.
