Welcome to your Friday Links!!

Heeeere we go… (And, forgive me, this week’s is a little list-heavy.)

» Item Not As Described

“Free is a four-letter word”
This site investigates Craigslist ads across the US and compares their descriptions to the photos provided. Some funny commentary on many of these.

» Texts From Last Night

[somewhat self explanatory]
Self-confessional texts posted by ordinary (?) cellphone users which they regretted sending. At least in theory.
Sent in by Laura F., among many subscribers.

» Overheard In The Newsroom

[self explanatory]
“Overheard in the Newsroom” delivers the best overheard comments and conversations in any newsroom.”
Crime reporter ending a conversation:
“Can’t talk anymore, gotta go sensationalize a story.”

» Kaboom

Another addictive flash game! You knew you wanted this. 🙂

I hope your weekend is excellent.

But also: SUMMER!!

Here we go…

» 3 Frame Movies

[sort of self-explanatory]
Your favorite movies, whittled down to three key frames. Funny! (To me at least.)

» Discover Magazine: Science Tattoo Emporium

Mind-blowing what some people want to put on their skin forever. A map of the Galapagos Islands? One of Maxwell’s equations? They’re here, and dozens more.

» The Art Museum Toilet Museum of Art

That’s a mouthful. It’s a gallery comprising the toilets found in as many museums of art as they can be found and photographed.

» Shopping Cart Hero

This is one very addictive game. 🙂

Welcome to your first official Summer weekend.



Jun. 12th, 2009

Friday the… (oh.) 12th. 🙁

How anticlimactic!

Here we go…

» OverSharers

“Really, really more than you want to know.”
No kidding! Insane lists of peoples’ random ultra-personal Twitterings.

» The Elusive Perfect Shave

[self explanatory]
Makes an awesome reference to the original Onion article about five-blade razors.

» Cubic-Hell

“Anonymous, work-related confessions”
Anyone who’s worked in an “open concept” office can probably relate to this website’s postings. Funny / sad.

» Lights

Another semi-addictive flash game. Click on stuff to discover things within a room. Rinse and repeat. Sort of…

There! Done!

Enjoy your weekend everyone.


Jun. 5th, 2009

Summer! (Well… 16 days from now anyway.)

Welcome to Friday!

Here we go…

» Ruined Endings

Featuring (predictably) the endings to a huge number of movies. Fell asleep before your dvd ended and had to return it this morning? This site is for you.

» Pandora’s Skull: All the Twittered Shakespeare Synopses

Sent in by Stewie.

» PIxelBreaker: Polar Clock

A unique method of displaying time.
Also available as a screensaver and iPod app. Nicely done.

» FatCat

Another heavily addictive flash game. (What are Fridays for?)

Enjoy your weekend everybody.
