And rather swiftly: there goes August.

Here we go…

» How Many People Are In Space Right Now?

[self explanatory]

» The Origins Of Band Names

Not that comprehensive but there are some interesting ones in here.

» A Flapper’s Dictionary

“As recorded by Ella Hartung in 1922”
What an odd little find.
“Let’s blouse!”

» Demolition City

Very fun and addictive game. It gets challenging!

Bonus Link!

» Air Traffic in 24 Hours

Very cool visualization. (Single use.)

Happy Friday everyone.


Aug. 21st, 2009

Welcome to another hot Summer Friday, following some insane weather in my neck of the woods (hope all are doing well.)

And now for your Friday Links. 🙂

» Emails From Crazy People

[self explanatory]
Technically, this is actually a compendium of both emails and actual letters. Some hilarious stuff in here.

» KempFold

“Ross Kemp’s Face, Folded.”
And so far they have over 100. You can send in your own.
A bit insane but funny.

» Music From A Tree

[self explanatory]
Diego Stocco records a song using nothing but sounds and tones he discovered by striking, bowing or otherwise “playing” a tree. Kind of interesting.
Sent in by Laura F.

» Power Pool 2

Addictive online pool game. Simple as that.

Therrrre ya go!

Happy Friday, Friday people.

Mid-August! Already!

And more importantly: Friday!

Here we go…

» Knitting Iris: The Ford Treasury of Station Wagon Living

What an insane blog posting. This book dates from around 1957 and lists a huge array of bizarre recommendations for camping in your new Ford station wagon. Who knew?

» Stupid, Stupid Stamps

[self explanatory]
“Someone remind me: next time I go to the UK I want to bring my fife so I can harl the crap out of it.”
Hilarious, sort of.

» King of Crayons

“I’m a narcoleptic criminologist. I haven’t worked for a while. I occupy my time by screwing with coloring book pages. It’s like photoshop without a computer!”
I don’t have anything to add to that. Hilarious!

» This Is The Only Level

Very clever and addictive manipulations of a single game.
Don’t say I didn’t warm you.

Have a fabulous weekend everybody.

Hooray for Friday!

Here we go.

» Avoid This Job

[self explanatory]
As many of you may know, I’ve been looking for a job for a while now. I came across this site, and it definitely makes the struggle a lot less stressful.

» Wallstats: Death And Taxes & Taxes

A huge, zoomable, very detailed visual breakdown of where the US Government’s 1.421 Trillion dollars is going. Insane.
Also a bit of a non-standard interface, but still cool.

» Ginou Choueiri: Potato Portraits

Beirut-born artist Choueri claims “Potatoes and human heads are quite similar,” and her bizarre potato-media art sort of bears this out. Eeeesh.

» Music Catch 2

A free-form icon-catching music game. Avoid red, go for anything else. Addictive, but also somewhat Zen.
Sent in by Miko.

And there you have it!

Have a great weekend everyone.
