Wicked! Friday! Excellent! This is gonna RULE!
It’s Canada Day this weekend (July 1st). That’s Canada’s version of Independence Day. It’s a hoot, “eh?” 😉
So to begin: some links about what others have learned about Canada:
» An American Tourist
» A Malaysian Immigrant (formerly a doctor)
» The Zen Limey
» A Grade 7 Geography Class (unknown US location) from 2004
And now two more links for the rest of you Friday folks:
» Michael Jackson: NES Famicom!
Hosted in Japan, a bit slow to download but somewhat worth it. Michael Jackson appears in a wide variety of old Nintendo games. Kinda… odd. Must have taken a while to do. Awesome music (?)
» Princeton University: Art Of Science, 2006
Rather beautiful imagery of scientific phenomena. Also see the 2005 gallery.
Happy Canada Day / Independence Day Weekend!
Let’s dive in shall we?
» Cow Abductions
Sent in by Karem. Hilarious.
» Toynbee Tiles
Kinda hard to explain (and forgive the lack of layout.) A series of tiles have begun showing up on pavements in Philadelphia. “TOYNBEE IDEA IN KUbricK’s 2001 RESURRECT DEAD ON PLANET JUPiTER”. Definitely an interesting read. [See also: DamnInteresting.com]
» Talking Head Tables
“Our Talking Head Tables are absolutely hilarious.” Ohhh I just bet they are. [Please note: David Byrne does not make an appearance.] Yikes!
» Pimp My Doll!
Crrrrazy Italian site about… uh… dolls! Some cool U.N.K.L.E.-style designs going on.
» Connie Chung’s Farewell Insanity
Insane bonus link for those of you who did not see it:
Yyyyyyyeah. Well… thanx for THAT, Ms. Chung. Oy…
Happy First Friday of Summer!
» Something Awful: Misspelled Movies (part 2):
I heart Something Awful! They make my day.
» Top 10 Strangest / Coolest Mini Devices
I won’t spoil #1 for you but it’s impressive.
» Fake Or Foto?
You might be surprised…

Ordinary gamer folks create short films using footage they “act” within videogames.
Red vs. Blue is a very popular subset of this, creating how-to videos (among other things) using characters in Halo. It’s funnier than it sounds.
Haaaaaaaaappy Friiiiiiidayyyyyyyyyy! [echo]
Hello at last Friday-folks!
» Mike’s World Wide Web of Barf Bags
» Scary Duck’s House of Lies
Example: “One out of every 1,000,000 Cadbury’s Creme Egg contains a real chick. Get a real bird, win a Mini Metro!”
» The William Shatner Acting Simulator
Surprised I didn’t think of that sooner…
Have a great weekend!
Friday Friday Friday! Not Monday! Friday!
» David Bowie [among others] Is Very Disappointed In You
[Self-explanatory. And briefly funny]
Sent in by Courteney in BC. (Hi Courteney!)
Insane! Have a monkey recite your message for you. Great use of technology for ridiculous means.
» Tick Tock Toys
Features a rather interesting blog, and a huge archive of kid-related foods. Old cereal packaging, cereal boxes, fast food packaging, you name it. Exhaustive. Insane.
» MetaMath Music
“Mathematical Proofs Set to Music”. This is what happens when a math wiz attempts to turn mathematical formulae into music. Some of it is actually quite good! Reminds me a bit of Steve Reich.
Happy Friday Friday Friday!
