FrrrrrrIDAY! And stuff.

Here goes!

» Middle East Buddy List / Cheat Sheet

If you’re as bewildered as I have been lately about who likes who / who hates who in the middle east, here’s a fairly brilliant chart that describes several middle-east factions and their relationships to each other.

» Jan von Holleben: Dreams of Flying

Jan von Holleben is a Dutch photographer living in london. He’s become internationally famous mostly via online views of his online gallery. Other work is available on the site but these are some of the most creative (in my opinion.)

» A Tinkertoy Computer

Among other things, it plays tic-tac-toe. It takes no electricity and is hand-cranked by a human to operate.

» Live Ship Locations

Verrry nerdy. Similar to the air traffic controller viewer. (see archive) This shows the current location of all the known / registered ocean-going vessels in the world.

Happy Friday wherever you are. Stay cool this weekend. (I mean literally cool.)

Huzzah! Friday at last.

» Zidane Headbutt Game

Sent in by Kevin. That domain name does not lie. 🙂 Now I have an alternative outlet for anytime someone says something about my mother. 🙂

» Sweet Jesus I Hate Bill O’Reilly Dot Com

Extremely self-explanatory. I bought the book!

» “Live” Space Invaders

Note: The site is in French. Totally worth the looksee. Looks like something Michel Gondry (also French — COINCIDENCE?????) would come up with.

» Concise Map of Springfield

Created in 2001. This is extremely detailed. So much so that it’s actually been added to the Harvard Map Collection.

Bonus Link!

» The Fabulous George Bush / Tony Blair Open Mic Video

Extra bonus link for this week.

Priceless.

Have a fabulous Friday (and weekend.)

Whuhooooooofridayyyywhuhoooo!

Ahhhh summer. 🙂

Okay! Here goes!

» Four Second Fury!

Any of those of you who’ve played Wario Warez will probably kick ass at these. Frantic gameplay! Lots of variety though.

» Scott Radke’s Creepy Marionettes

[Self explanatory… {{shudder}}…]

» Fun Things To Do With Weiners (?!)

[Note: Japanese]
Insane! Complete with instructions! Only in Japan…

» Headacher!

[also self explanatory]

Thanx again Friday people!

HelloooooooooooooffffffffffffFFFFFFRIDAY!!

» PsyOp: Coke Ad(UK)

Those of you in the digital arts fields probably already saw this but if not: you should. 🙂
PsyOp [psyop.tv] also made the new MTV HD Station ID’s.

[P.S. Yeah I know: it’s Coke. Megacorporation and all that… Grrrrr…]

» 3D Pong

I have sent this to some of you individually in the past, so apologies for repeating. This is insanely addictive. Sadly it does not keep your high score (or allow you to restart.) Still! If they had this for PSP I’d be playing it a lot.[hint!]

» The Broth

A mosaic, created in realtime, by Internet users around the world. It also features a meagre but interesting gallery.

» Facsimile Books

Accurate reprints and constructed binding of ancient texts (11th to 18th century volumes are represented here.) An insane amount of work goes into making these. They’re not cheap but they look fantastic! Much more interesting than the BBC’s “virtual” ancient books of a few years past.

Happy Friday, Friday listers!
