And for our US friends: Memorial Day Weekend.
Here we go!
» The Bumbershoot Band Bio Generator
Bumbershoot takes place this September and is definitely worth checking out.

» Virtual Speak & Spell
And no, you still can’t make it swear. 🙂
» Google Sightseeing
In some instances, some extremely hi-res satellite photos of city streets. You can see people in many of the major cities.
Worth it for the name alone. Addictive and funny. That site has tons more as usual. 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your Friday, and have a fabulous weekend.
It’s finally Friday! And where I live it’s a long weekend. Whuhoo!
Here we go…
Watch as photos uploaded to flickr are superimposed over their location on a Google map of the world. It’s mesmerizing, and it gives a sense of just how active that community is. Great interface too.
» So You’ve Decided To Be Evil…
“A Step-by-Step Guide to joining the Forces of Darkness”
[Note: rub hands together maniacally while reading…]
There is also a book available. [And it’s gotten some great reviews]
» Flight Memory
“Flight Memory enables you to easily keep track of where you have flown and then easily produce maps showing your flight routes.”
For travel nerds like me, this is kind of interesting. Check out the preview page.
» Where Is Jesus
Not Waldo: Jesus!
[Note: I am not religious]
Happy Friday, and happy (long) weekend everybody!
Mid-May Fridayyyyy! [applause!]
Here we go:
» Sweet-Ass Ice Sculptures I’m Going To Make With A Chain Saw One Day
[self explanatory] [And Funny!]
From the ever-entertaining McSweeney’s
» The Book of Bunny Suicides
Funny! (No really)
» Park My Car
Great idea. Take something everyone hates, and make it into an addictive game! (They should make “Do My Laundry” as well…)
Note: watch out for animals!
» Salem Witch Trials Archive
A bit dry, possibly, but it’s certainly interesting.
[Insert obligatory Bush Administration joke here…]

Enjoy your weekend, Friday people!
Whuhoo! The first Friday Links of May.
Heeeeere we go…
» Us Festival Archive: 1982 – 1983
Hard to believe how huge this festival event was. And it lost money. Some awesome shots of the nearly-million-person crowd that attended, and the insane 80’s bands that played them. (Scorpionnnns!)
See also the Wikipedia Entry.
The real era of real punk. (None of that Sum41 crap – no offence to Sum41 fans.) Particularly if you’re a fan: huuuuge amounts of background data on pretty much every punk band ever. Personal favorite: GBH.
» Random Personal Picture Finder(tm)
Another neat Google hack. Show a selection of personal photos of people you have likely never met. It changes over time and can be entertaining to return to after a while.
Sort of like a 3d version of one of my very favorite games, Lumines. Read the instructions. It starts off easy but progressively gets quite a bit more difficult.
Have a great Friday, and a spectacular weekend.
