Friday at last!

Awayyyyy we go!

» We Feel Fine

Fascinating art installation in which users post how they’re feeling (often in poetic style) and you randomly get to read them. You can narrow it down by geographic location, gender, weather, etc.
There’s a very cool interview with the creators of this site.

» The 213 Things Skippy Is No Longer Allowed To Do In The U.S. Army

A few examples:
51. Not allowed to quote “Dr Seuss” on military operations.
102. Rodents are not entitled to burial with full military honors, even if they are “casualties of war”.

» Gravity

A bit complex. This is for you NASA types. And needless to say: it’s addictive.

» 1024 Cheerleaders

“Here is a cheering team which shows you a grand tifo, generated from your favorite image file.”
Don’t know what a “tifo” is? Maybe go here.

Happy Friday everyone!

Fridayyyyyy at last. 🙂 And I’m back from Vacation. [ahhhh…]

Here goes!

» Tengu USB Lip Sync Dude

Uhhh… self explanatory? 🙂 It’s weird that’s for sure.

» Spectrum of Work that I can do While Drinking Wine

Also a decent blog in its own right…

» The Chronicles Of George

“George is, quite simply, the worst helpdesk technician ever.”
Quite funny. A little cruel perhaps. But still funny. It even has a discussion board.

» Mad Shark

You are the shark. Move your mouse to move the shark, and hit your spacebar to bite. Addictive and fun.

Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!

Happy Friday!

A note that next week will sadly have no Friday links, as I will be on vacation in fabulous Quebec.

Here we go!

» The Picture Of Everything

An odd and fascinating piece of artwork by Howard Hallis. It’s still in progress.

» Bald Guy Greetings

Subtly funny greeting cards. A sample for Valentines day:
Front: You complete me
Inside: And I don’t mean that in the overly used Jerry Maguire kind of way. I mean it from the bottom of my heart. My life truly would not be the same without you. But I do wish you were less controlling.

» Redneck Neighbor

Originally sent to me wayyy back in 1999 by Eric B.. It’s still up, and still funny / sad enough that I thought it was worth sharing. It’s quite long but definitely entertaining.

» Gridlock

I’ve had this on my Palm for close to a year as a game called “Traffic”. It’s addictive and frustrating. 🙂

Bonus Link!

» Turn your hamster into a fighting machine!

[self explanatory]

Have a great weekend Friday people!

It is Friiiiiiday! Whuhoo!

Today’s link-fest is largely photographic because that’s what seemed to be cropping up the most lately.

Here goes…

» Projections On A Nuclear Plant

Really beautifully executed. Must have taken a bit of time to set up.

» Medium Format Lego Pinhole Camera

Sadly: no posted photographs taken with said camera, but yikes. This obviously took quite a bit of work. Also see the 35mm Lego Pinhole Camera

» Milk Meets Coffee

One of several very stylized photography galleries by Irene Müller. Several others worth looking at there as well. You can buy prints of these and other works by this photographer.

» The Ball

Steer a ball towards a specific goal. Problem is: you can’t see the whole path to get to that goal. 🙂
From the makers of the Dyson vacuum cleaner.

Have a fantastic weekend everybody!
