Fridaayyyyyyyuh! Yes! [punches air]
» MyHeritage: Facial Recognition
Sent in by Damir and a really uncanny find. Upload a photo of your face. (Large enough, and facing forward enough.) They scan a database of celebrities to show you which ones you resemble. Mine is here. (Damir’s ishere.)
Insanely funny in most cases.
» Click Opera: Employee Of The Month
Speaking of photos… this blog listed a series of ridiculously hi-resolution employee photographs, inserting his own rather insane captions to describe their expressions. It’s kind of unsettling…
» Coltrane’s Giant Steps: Visualized
This takes a while to load (click on “Watch Movie”,) but is emminently worth it. I love Coltrane. The story behind this project is sort of interesting as well.
Developed at MIT, Clocky is an alarm clock which, when you hit snooze, “will jump off of your nightstand and wheel around your room looking for a place to hide.” That’s an interesting way to start your day. 🙂
Enjoy your weekend, wherever you are.
A little late, yes, but still ready to rock your Friday. Here goes.
» Much Better Than This
Awww? Yes: I am late for Valentines with this one. Still neat. Sent in by Bahar.
See also…. This guy appears to be an online installationist. Some neat / insane stuff in there.
Find out how badly your job will age you… sort of. Not particularly realistic but a neat little gizmo. Sent in by Damir.
Recommended by Sarah. Apparently (her words) the “highlight” is when they turn the massive block of cheese. What an odd site! 🙂 This has also been featured on numerous recent news reports.
» CG Sphere
A whooooole lotta digital artists submit their take on a cg-generated sphere.
Some Friday linkages to warm you up…
» Tangerine Panic
Dodge as many as possible. Sure: it sounds easy…
» OddCast Text To Speech Demos
Choose a language, choose a character voice (including accented voices.) Watch and listen. This must have taken a bit of time to create. Note: you can only use this a limited number of times. It’s pretty funny trying a french voice with english phrases.
» Vinyl Data: Videogames from an LP
In the late 70’s / early 80’s, numerous (predominantly British) vinyl releases featured a track at the end with data audio on it which resulted in a playable videogame for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum home computer. Nerrrrd alert! Pretty neat idea though.
» Who’s Who of Victorian Cinema
An incredibly thorough compendium of historical data on a film industry at a time when I wasn’t even aware that one existed. It even includes a listing of Victorian film projector styles.
First Friday in February! Whuhoo!
Happy Friday people. Here you go.
» Things My Boyfriend Says
e: My hands hurt from doing the dishes.
me: You’re such a delicate flower.
e: How does it feel?
me: How does what feel?
e: Being punched in the face by a delicate flower?
[Note: possibly / probably nsfw]
Guide your robot through a series of mysterious and puzzling levels. This is somewhat similar to the PSP game “PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient”. Tricky, and addictive.

» Steve’s Weird House
Possibly the most cluttered household in the world, never mind just Seattle. Some interesting stuff in here but… it takes a while to focus. 🙂
» Disney Studio: The Ropes
A booklet given to all new employees at Disney circa 1943. Apparently women weren’t allowed to… do anything…
Have a good weekend!
