Welcome! To your Friday Links!
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.
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 New discoveries may actually mean his version is out of date, but it’s cool nonetheless.

It’s a bit disconnected in terms of defining sources, but it’s still funny.
Happy (cold) Friday!
