May 21st, 2010


We are now precisely one month away from the official beginning of Summer 2010. I for one am excited.

Here we go…

» The Most Awesomest Thing Ever

“You have happened upon the quest for THE MOST AWESOMEST THING EVER. In each battle, we will pit two things against one another. It’s up to you to decide which is more awesome. Over time, the awesomest will prevail. Battle On.”
[self explanatory… I guess.]
My first “battle” was between a Boomerang and a Big Mac. Boomerang won. Your turn.

» NY Times Blog: Moment In Time

“Here it is: Earth, covered by stacks of thousands of virtual photographs, corresponding in location to where they were taken by Lens readers at one ‘Moment in Time’ (15:00 U.T.C., Sunday, May 2).”
This could eat up a lot of time.

» Prosopamnesia

A kind of mesmerizing little… thing.
Give it some time, it loads a bunch of things to get going.
Discovered by Ashy.

» 8-Ball Quick Fire Pool

Extremely addictive. Impressive for a flash game to have this level of detail as well.

Have a great (long) weekend, everybody!


May 14th, 2010

Friday, and where I live it’s finally getting warm.

Here we go…

» Phoenix Remix of Grizzly Bear

[sort of]
Phoenix got too busy to remix Grizzly Bear’s track “Foreground”, so they decided to just put the original on the web alongside Eno’s Discreet Music version of the Pachelbel Canon.

» The Vintage Ad Browser

[self explanatory]
For print ads like this one. Yikes…

» Vending Spree

“I am going to consume and review every item in my office vending machine and there is nothing you can do to stop me.”
Wow. Sounds serious!
Also: Just how big is this vending machine?!

» Give Up, Robot

Another addictive little platform flash game.

And there you have it.

Happy Friday, Friday people.

A really beautiful multimedia presentation for this NZ band’s new single. Fantastic.

A simple platformer game from Square Enix. Only with the added twist of trying to prevent you from running into yourself.
