Welcome! To your Friday Links!


» Check The Cool Wax: Christmas Music

I’m willing to bet you never knew just how many insane Christmas albums have actually been recorded, mixed, and released. (e.g.: The Three Suns:“A Ding Dong Dandy Christmas!”. The three who?!?!) This is a wicked site any time of year, but holy crap the Christmas albums are insane!

» EXPO 67

Wow. I feel old now. 🙂 Some fairly cool (and pretty decent resolution) photographs from EXPO 67 (Montréal, Québec, Canada, 1967). The rest of that site is kinda nerdy but also interesting.

» The Antikythera Mechanism

Some of you may not be aware of the history and discovery of this fascinating device. The story behind its discovery is impressive. A UK inventor decided to attempt a re-creation of this ancient Greek machine. New discoveries may actually mean his version is out of date, but it’s cool nonetheless.

[self explanatory]
It’s a bit disconnected in terms of defining sources, but it’s still funny.

Happy (cold) Friday!
