The last friday of November. Whuhoo!

Welcome to Friday. Here we go…

» Is It Christmas?

[self explanatory, when you get there]
Check back on Dec. 25th!

» Covering The Mouse

A blog dedicated to finding and linking to cover versions of songs from Disney films.
It’s relatively new but already features some really interesting finds. (Gene Simmons?! LL Cool J?)

» The Last Iceberg

Photographer Camille Seaman showcases a variety of breathtaking images of icebergs and arctic shelves she has photographed since 2003. Quite beautiful.
Note: Flash required.

» Passing By

Video shot from moving vehicles around the world. It’s kind of mesmerizing.

» Johanna’s Artwork Inspired By Stevie Nicks

Stay warm this weekend folks. Happy Friday!


Nov. 23rd, 2007

Friday of the US Thanksgiving Day Weekend! Whuhooo!

Here we go…

» Crayon Physics Deluxe

A video demo of a game where you draw objects which have to obey the laws of physics in order to hit a target. Looks elaborate!
Sent in by Ana D.

» DrawPlay

Similar but distinctly different than Crayon Physics. (Since I can’t link to that game.)
Draw your map level, then get to the flag. Addictive!

» Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians

[self explanatory]

» The 1984 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Caution: quite bad site design.
A collection of video files documenting the 1984 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, including this fan’s comments. He also includes ad spots at the end.

Happy Friday, and have a great weekend.


Nov. 16th, 2007

There are only six (6) more fridays left in this year. 🙁

But today is one of them!

Here we go…

» Mateuniverse: Advanced Beauty

Designer Mate Steinforth creates one of numerous very beautiful and engaging online installations. Difficult to describe but extremely beautiful. Note: a bit bandwidth heavy, and there is audio.

» Look At Me

“The collection contains 616 photos. These photos were either lost, forgotten, or thrown away.”
Hey maybe some of you are in there!

» Cats In Sinks

The cat torture continues…
Sure it’s no “Pigs In Space”, but I’ll take it. 🙂
Sent in by Jennidub (aw?)

» Virtual NES

“ is the largest vNES website on the Internet. vNES is a Nintendo Entertainment System emulator programmed in Java.”
They are not kidding. Claiming to feature 666 Nintendo console games, this site could eat up a huge amount of otherwise productive time. (Shhhh)

Bonus Link!

» Queen: Hidden Message

Is there a subversive message hidden in “Another One Bites The Dust”? 🙂
This also features an alleged hidden message in a Led Zeppelin and Britney Spears song.

Happy Friday, people.


Nov. 9th, 2007

Nearing Mid-November already. This year is running out of Fridays!

Let’s begin…

» Open Letters To People Or Entities Who Are Unlikely To Respond.

There are several. You can take your pick. My personal favorite: “An Open Letter to the Intestinal Parasites I Managed to Pick Up in West Africa This Summer”. [“Greetings, Soil-Transmitted Helminths! Welcome to my digestive system!”]

» City7: Toronto Half Life 2 Mod

A recreation of quite a bit of downtown Toronto for use with the extremely popular PC game “Half Life 2”
Make sure to check out the Screenshots.

» Crazy Questions at a Google Job Interview

Having undergone a Google interview myself, I can vouch for the validity of the selection shown here. They come up with some weird ones.

» I Heart Guts

“I Heart Guts is the brainchild of an anatomically obsessed illustrator who loves internal organs and all they do.”
You can buy plush toys in the shape of a stomach, heart, kidneys, etc. Ingenious, playful design.

Enjoy! Happy weekend, Friday Linkfolk.


Nov. 2nd, 2007



Here goes…

» Crackbook

“Crackbook is an addictive social utility that makes you feel that you’re connecting with people when actually you’re just not”
A comedic take on Facebook from David McCandless’ book – The Internet Now in Handy Book Form…

» They Didn’t Study

Actual answers to various test questions from young students.

» The Hooke Folio

[Apologies to Metafilter readers]
A shockwave interface to Robert Hooke’s minutes of the Royal Society. Somewhat fascinating and a bang-up user interface. Nicely done.

» Gramma’s 12-Piece Chiken Head Dinner

Yes, that is how they spelled it.
Yet another flash game for those with very short attention spans. Sent in by Jennidub, who is addicted.

Happy Friday, everybody.
