In a video released Wednesday, former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman walks the scene where he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, describing for police what he said happened that night. Zimmerman said to police in the video that he fired a single shot after Martin wrestled him to the grass and began banging his head repeatedly into concrete. “It felt like my head was going to explode,” Zimmerman said, “and I thought I was going to lose consciousness.” The video was filmed the day after Zimmerman shot Martin.

Oh, Copenhagen. You brought us the Midcentury furniture designs that make "Mad Men" an interior decorator's dream and saw the wisdom of bike commuting long before L.A. earned its first CicLAvia. Now you've one-upped every philharmonic in the world with video of your orchestra (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) making an entire subway train weak in the knees with a flash mob performance of Grieg's "Peer Gynt" on a Copenhagen Metro train. In a video filmed last month that justifiably went viral, the Copenhagen symphony is subtly introduced on one of the station's signs with the announcement, "Classical special train: Enjoy the music," before treating commuters to probably one of the most beautiful rides of their lives.

Muppets on Video: The new Jim Henson Video line is doing well, with the late muppeteer's feature films, "The Muppet Movie" and "The Great Muppet Caper," nabbing the two top video sales spots in their first week on the market. The videos, distributed by Buena Vista, outsold both Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" and Touchstone's "Sister Act." Meanwhile, Henson's creations are branching out.

Kanye West's official video for “Black Skinhead” is finally out. West posted a link to the completed video for the single (stylized as "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD") on his website Monday morning. A rough cut of the clip, the first visual from his polarizing album “Yeezus,” leaked online earlier this month, igniting a furor of tweets from the rapper. “Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it's heartbreaking when something like this happens,” he fired off . “Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over.” RELATED: Kanye West tangles with another paparazzo In the black-and-white clip, a CGI-version of a very buff and shirtless West dances and raps in the dark using some coarse language as well as haunting images, including some rather ferocious Dobermans and Ku Klux Klan-inspired visuals.

The video of the beating and sexual abuse of five young alleged thieves at the hands of vigilantes has provoked widespread outrage here. But in some quarters, there have been disquieting voices of approval. The video landed on YouTube. It shows the cowering teenage boys being slapped in the face and forced to French kiss one another. Each is forced to say that they are about to be raped as punishment for robbing houses. In the state of Nayarit, where the incident took place, many people suspect that the abusers might be police officers.

If Justin Bieber were your boyfriend, you'd live in a world full of hot girls, retro-cool cars and one now-legal teen idol playing guitar, campfire-style. And even though he's not really your boyfriend -- ours either, sad to say -- Bieber's new "Boyfriend" video is happy to let you enjoy that swag vicariously. Warning: It looks as if turning 18 has freed up Mr. Bieber's inner sexy. Of course, it's all relative -- he hasn't exactly drifted in to D'Angelo territory . And it might just be us, 'cause we're sitting here thinking that even his silly fondue line seems a little tastier with the video playing.

A small group of people stood off to the side of a road near Baltimore on Tuesday afternoon, staring at a column of flames from a derailed frieght train in the distance. "How far -- how far away you think we are?" a man asked. Before anyone could answer, a large explosion ripped through the air, sending a response to the onlookers scurrying away: Too close. The train explosion could be felt for miles in Rosedale, a few miles east of downtown Baltimore, where residents could see a towering black column of smoke rising into the air after the blast.

Parents are not out to get their children hurt when they grab for the video camera; things just happen, and that's what makes the pratfalls and comedy of errors so amusing. The child would have hit his head or run into the wall regardless of whether there was a video camera running. I feel censorship is being proposed when Rosenberg suggests that the show no longer accept videos containing children. Please, can we enjoy this little show without feeling guilty or taking it too seriously?

Astronomers have put the known universe in a box on your computer screen - the 120 million light-years of it within our grasp, at least. With a mellifluous French-accented narration, some light piano music and sweeping computer animation, the video could become a stoner classic. It also happens to be the most detailed modern cosmography of all that is visible in the sky - and a great deal of what is not. At nearly 18 minutes long (that's less than one side of Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon")
