All ready for June, Friday People? (And is it just me or is this year zipping right along?)

Let’s begin!

» The Best Of Google Street View

Some crazy images captured by the Google van.

LOLCAT-themed interpretations of 15th and 16th century manuscripts and woodcuts.
“Oh noes! Mah soul!!!1!! I iz sufferin lawts :(”

» MikeSacks: Ikea Instructions

These are surprisingly accurate! 🙂

» Dino Run

Amazingly enough: this cheeseball looking game is also multiplayer! Not bad at all.

Bonus Link!

» Sweet Baby Jesus: Check Out The PONCHO!

[self explanatory… and quite insane!]
Most likely NSFW, so be careful.

Happy Friday, and Happy June!

Wow. Friday at last!

And therefore: some links!

» Yeondoo Jung: Wonderland

This Korean photographer decided to interpret several children’s drawings. The results are pretty amazing.

» This Peanut Looks Like A Duck

[self explanatory]
A blog completely devoted to everyday items which resemble a duck. Insane.

» Cassettes From My Ex

“They were into you, so they made you a tape.”
A collection of mixtape compilations and the stories behind them. Some very poignant stories in here.

» Through The Tunnel

Manoeuvre your player through an endless tunnel with lots of surprise obstacles.

Have a spectacular weekend, Friday people!


May 16th, 2008

Happy Friday! And for some of us: It’s a long weekend! Whuhoo!

Here we go…

» How to Pass for a Native New Yorker

Sent in by Melmel, who loves this one: “A New Yorker never waits on line for a cupcake.”

» GetHuman

“The gethuman movement was created from the voices of millions of consumers who want to be treated with dignity when they contact an enterprise for customer support.”
This site contains instructions, by company, for how to cut through voicemail menu hell and connect with a human operator. Extremely helpful and thorough site.

» Eegra: Hilarity Comics

Some insane – and I do mean insane – little comics here from this group of videogame critics. this one made me laugh out loud.
There are also some great articles on there as well.

» Blast Billiards

Aim for the bombs and try to sink them all before the timers finish their countdown. Addictive!

Have a fantastic weekend everybody!


May 9th, 2008

You know what time it is. 🙂

Let’s begin…

» Jimpix: Terrorism In Context

Why focus so much stress on terrorism when smoking, alcohol and cars all kill far more people on a daily basis?
Sent in by Ana D. A good read!

» Space Shuttle Processing: Rarely seen by the general public

Indeed! All the steps needed to assemble and launch the Space Shuttle Discovery.
If you’re a space travel nerd like me, this is pretty amazing.

» Condiment Packet Gallery

Yikes. There’s a collector for everything isn’t there. It even has a special section on a limited set of condiment packets produced by Taco Bell which featured little sayings on them.

» Kaleidosketch

Pretty neat browser hack that allows you to draw kaleidoscopic artwork. Fun!
Sent in by Ash.

Happy Friday everybody!

Frrrriiiiiiiidayyyyyeeeeuh! 🙂

Welcome to May!

» Life Before Death

“The work by German photographer Walter Schels and his partner Beate Lakotta, who recorded interviews with the subjects in their final days, reveals much about dying – and living.”
Sent in by Drea L.

» Hobnox Audiotool Demo

Unbelievable! A set of oldskool music composing devices, all running in your browser. Not bad at all.
Sent in by Jennidub, who I will now rename “DJ ‘Ssauga”.

» 360 Cities

“the World’s fastest-growing Virtual Reality network, now with more than 50 cities and over 6,000 virtual reality panoramas.”
Fantastic! (And not a bad Google Maps hack either.)
Sadly, no Toronto (yet.)

» Miestas

Takes a while to load, but it’s worth it. Hand drawn game by Jurgis Jonaitis and Justinas Malijonis. This has apparently been around for a while, but I only tripped across it recently.
