Friday Friday Friiiidaayyyeeeee!

Whuhoo! Here we go…

» JacksonPollock.org

Create your own avant-garde dripping paint canvas. It’s somewhat therapeutic. 🙂
Sent in by Laura F. (by way of William D.)

» Lumi Lena Snow Castle

In Finland! This is similar to the Quebec ice hotel. I know: it’s officially spring. But it’s still a cool looking place.

» BookScans

“Scanned Images of Vintage Paperback Books”. (Note: this is only the covers.)
At the moment they are highlighting the “classic” The Werewolf Of Paris. There are hundreds of book covers scanned in this site. Some crazy titles in there. 🙂

» Break-In 2

From Mine Games. Sure it looke gruzzy but it’s a tense little game (and the second part of this game.) Fans of Metal Gear Solid will probably be awesome at it, unlike me.

Bonus Link!

» In-flight photography by a commercial pilot

I know what you’re thinking: so who’s flying the plane?!?! 🙂 Some amazing photographs from a pro-photographer-pilot.
From the same site: The Glamour of Flight

Have a great weekend, Friday people!

Another Friday, another Friday Links Email!

Here goes…

» Naoto Hattori: Surrealist Art

Some… rather insane artwork on here. This Tokyo / New York artist has a really distinct style. Beautiful and disturbing. (Possibly NSFW)

» Noah’s Ark Search

[Self Explanatory]

» CBC 1993 report on something called “Internet”

Unintentionally funny. This might get taken down soon (since it’s owned by the CBC.)
This has been making the rounds, so apologies if you had already seen it. Still funny!

» Men Of Mortuaries

They have a calendar (at last!) Possibly the most oddly disturbing yet hilarious thing I’ve seen in a while.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I am back! And, therefore, so are the Friday Links. Yayyyy!

Here goes!

» Lost As A Computer Text Adventure

A bit old but no less funny. And, yes, extremely nerdy.
Note: If you haven’t seen the show there are some spoilers.

» Hostile Skies!

Fly a WWI plane and shoot down “the enemy”. You also get to go up against the Red Baron (if you’re good enough.)

» The World Ice Art Championships

Ice carvers compete for artistic excellence. Some pretty amazing sculptures in this site. It’s an annual event.

» The Ancient Iran Photo Gallery

Several photographer friends sent me this one. In light of recent political events, it’s easy to forget what a hub of culture this region has been for millenia. Some really beautiful work here.

Bonus Link!

» The Rare Book Room

A place where you history / rare publication nerds can view hi-res scans of texts such as the Guttenburg Bible, among dozens of other invaluable historical publications. Pretty interesting. (To me at least.)

Happy Friday, everyone!

Welcome to the weekend. Where I’m from: it’s been a bit of a journey to get here.

Here are your Friday Links.

Just a warning: I am on vacation next week (Jamaica!), so there will be no Friday links next week. I’ll make up for it the following week. Even the Friday Links guy needs a vacation…

» San Francisco Bread Review

A website devoted to reviewing bread. I love bread but… this is kind of over the top. Witness this review of a loaf of french bread bought at a Safeway location.

» Nanaca CRASH!

Insane insane insane. And addictive. 🙂

» The BBC’s Senses Challenge

Test your senses. You may be surprised at the results.
There are other tests on that site as well. Interesting! (to me)

» Ask Moses

Hey: Passover is just around the corner… This is a website where you can ask Rabbinical scholars questions on “topics ranging from simple questions about Jewish holidays to complex inquiries on personal issues.” Available 24/6 (harrrr)
[Note: I am not religious.]

Happy Friday, and have a great week.
