Sadly, I have no game this week. Maybe one of you can recommend one. Instead, you get a bonus link!

Here we go…

“highDEAS the best ideas (while you’re high)”
Uhhh… wow. Some of these are interesting. And, of course, funny.

» Forgotten Bookmarks

“I work at a used and rare bookstore, and I buy books from people everyday. These are the personal, funny, heartbreaking and weird things I find in those books.”
Some iteresting and very poignant discoveries here.

» PingWire

“PingWire is an (almost) live feed of images being posted to twitter with Twitpic, yfrog, and Twitgoo.”
Updates every second. Interesting.

» Home Movie Reconstructions 1974 / 2004

Filmmaker Elliott Malkin re-creates super-8 home movies he shot in 1974 with shot-for-shot digital video from 2004. Kind of interesting.

Bonus Link!

Now go and enjoy your weekend. Happy Friday everyone!

Hello, and welcome to…

Your Friday Links!!

Here goes…

» Don’t Judge My Hair

uh… [self explanatory]?

» Rice Field Art

Artist unknown. From a Japanese Blog. Must have taken ages to do this.

» Asian Poses

“Simply smiling in a photo is so boring, why not strike a pose? Asians are notorious for their quirky and cute poses and this site focuses on documenting these poses.”

» The World’s Hardest Game

[self explanatory]
I never last more than six levels on this one so I’ll let you all be the judge of the veracity of the title.

Bonus Link!

» Wookieepedia

Uhhhh… ?
Hilarious. Sort of.


Happy Friday everybody!


Jul. 17th, 2009

And welcome to Late July!

And your Friday Links!

Here we go…

» We Choose The Moon

“Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing”
Really comprehensive archive of pretty much everything regarding Apollo 11. Sent in by numerous Friday Links subscribers.

» Awful Library Books

A blog listing a huge collection of extremely out-of-date books discovered within today’s libraries.
I think this one is my personal fave so far.
Sent in by Miko.

» Photoshop Disasters

[Self explanatory]
Either poor use or overuse of Photoshop “corrections” that made it out into the public. Some are hilarious.
Sent in by Ashy.

» Pyo Pyo Fruits

At least that’s what I’m told it is called.
Get fruits. Avoid rockets. And then it gets tricky as well.

See you next week. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!


Jul. 10th, 2009

Ahhhhh Summer…

And of course: your Friday Links.

Here goes…

» Eternal Moonwalk

“A tribute to Michael Jackson”
(Actually: not many people on this site appear to know how to moonwalk.)
Sent in by Miko.

» Zalgo (He Comes)

Uh…. Hm! Rather insane.
Also see this.

» Heather Parisi: Crilù

I’m a bit late to the game on this one but… uh… just: wow. Definitely one of the more insane 1984 flashbacks you’re likely to see today. 🙂
Recommended from many subscribers, via Coilhouse, a very cool site on its own.

» Ball Droppings

This is an addictive, reiterative puzzle (as opposed to a game.) There is also a downloadable version of the game on their main page. Fun!

There. Now go out and have a great weekend.


Jul. 3rd, 2009

Oooh saaay caaaaan yooooou seeeeee?

It’s July!

Let’s begin…

» RunPee

“Helping your bladder enjoy going to the movies as much as you do.”
This site offers you a selection of key moments you can duck out of whichever first-run movie you see in a theatre so that you don’t miss the important plot points (Inexplicably: only three moments in the new Transformers…)
Sent in by Ashy.

» There, I Fixed It

“Epic Kludges + Adventures In Home Pwnership”
Indeed! Yikes…

» 80’s Sax Solos

Analysis initially published in 2005 regarding the propensity towards sax solos in 80’s music.
“I realized about 5 years ago that at some point in the 80s, lots of the popular music started incorporating saxophone solos into their songs. Some of them are fine, but most of them are ridiculous to have in the songs.”

» Rabbit Wants Cake

I couldn’t find any “patriotic” flash games, but I did find this addictive and very creative one instead. You’re welcome!

There ya go. 🙂

Happy Friday, and to my American friends: Happy Independence Day!
