How street performers do the floating levitating man trick

How to do the floating levitating man trick street performingI’ve been seeing these floating/levitating man tricks that buskers do around the world and was always curious to how it was done. It is an amazing act that is for sure. The performer appears to float in midair like some sort of wizard or something. Turns out it’s actually a complex system that holds them in place. Sorry for ruining the fun but the video below shows exactly how they do it.

There is a steel plate on the pavement, covered with a grey carpet. In the corner of the plate, there is a rod sticking out. Into this, the there is a steel platform, on which the performers sits. The steel tube which holds the platform runs up his left sleeve. Whoever thought of this gets a round of applause from me because this just looks so cool!

Batman v Superman, Star Wars, and Evil Dead Trailers

Batman v Superman trailer Ash vs Evil Dead trailer Star Wars reelI watched three amazing trailers yesterday and thought I would share them with you.

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice comic-con trailer 2015

I must say that I didn’t have much hope for this Batman v Superman film but now that I have watched this trailer my opinion has really changed. This movie looks dark and epic. Batman looks cool and the world hates Superman!

Star Wars The Force Awakens Comic-con 2015 reel

A lot of behind the scenes footage to get you pumped for the new Star Wars film.

Ash vs The Evil Dead Trailer

I didn’t have much hope for this but after watching the trailer it actually looks pretty awesome! Too bad you will need Starz to watch it..

Dragon Age Inquisition Online Multiplayer Gameplay

Dragon Age Inquisition Online multiplayer gameplayLet’s play Dragon Age Inquisition multiplayer! Follow me on my journey to becoming a high level character. I plan on playing each of the classes and leveling them up. Stay current with the Youtube playlist over on Russ Tafari Gaming.

Dragon Age: Inquisition features a four player co-op multiplayer mode. This marks the first time that a multiplayer mode has been included in a Dragon Age game. Players will take on the role of a member of the Inquisition. At the beginning of each mission one of the Inquisitor’s advisors will instruct the player on their objectives.

The multiplayer mode will have no impact on the single player game and there will be no exclusive multiplayer achievements. There will also be no subscription or premium services. However, you can purchase Platinum, which is described as a “time saver” currency.

How to extract a Seagate Backup Plus Slim Hard Drive

How to extract a seagate backup plus slim hdI wanted to upgrade my PS4 by putting a new hard drive into it. After some research I found out that you can use a external hard drive as long as it has the right requirements. I discovered that the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB HD would be a perfect candidate for my project. The reason an external hard drive is a great choice is because they go on sale all the time. I used a guitar pick to open up the case and didn’t damage the enclosure at all so I can reuse it if I please. Watch the video below to see the entire process.

How to embed a Youtube video into your Ebay auctions

How to embed youtube videos into ebay auctionsThere is no better way to show off your Ebay listings than by showing the items in detail with a short video. I personally like to use videos for everything I sell on Ebay so the buyer can really get a good look at everything not just what the pictures are showing. It also enables me to talk about the item in greater detail. The easy way to do this would be to just take the embed code from your video on Youtube, but it not that easy. Ebay will not accept that code. Youtube use to have an option where you could “use the old embed code” and this is the code that you need to insert your video into the Ebay item description. Youtube does not give you an option to use that code anymore. The good news is that I have the old embed code that you need and this code works perfectly! You will need to switch to the HTML editor on Ebay by clicking the link at the top right of the item description box in order to insert the code.

Use this code in your item description on Ebay

<p align=”center”>
<object height=”385″ width=”640″><param
 name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”><param
 name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”>
<embed src=”;hl=en_US”
 type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always”
 allowfullscreen=”true” height=”385″ width=”640″></object></span></strong></p>

Now all you need to do is replace XXXXXXXXXXX with the 11 characters that appear at the end of your Youtube video link. You can find your video url by clicking the share button under the video like the in the example below. All you need to do is copy those lase 11 characters in the url and place them in the above code. Then insert that code into your Ebay auction and you are good to go!
