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.

Bonus Link!

» 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!

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]

Friday Friday Friday! Not Monday! Friday!

Whuhoo!

» David Bowie [among others] Is Very Disappointed In You

[Self-explanatory. And briefly funny]
Sent in by Courteney in BC. (Hi Courteney!)

» Monk-E-Mail

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!
