Welcome to the last Friday in February! (That was fast.)

Here are some new Friday links.

» Every #1 Song Until 1992, Five Seconds At A Time

Got 75 minutes? This is exactly what it says. Crazy.

» One Page Magazines

Creator Joseph Ernst creates a single page reflecting all the occurrences of a type of item for a given magazine. You can buy one. (They’re extremely limited edition.)

» Watch Diary

I think I want one. Great concept.

» Dromad

A twitchy, addictive shooter. Yikes.
Sent in by Aaron S.

Bonus Link!

» I Love Charts: Mad Men seasons 1-4

Contains spoilers!
Really well designed.
Sent in by Miko C. (who is obsessed with this show.)

Enjoy your weekend everybody.

I dunno about you, but I am glad it’s finally Friday this week.

Let’s begin…

» Year In Reviews

“Here are all the albums reviewed by Pitchfork in 2010.”
An interesting interface. Caution: it can take a while to load.

» Washington, D.C.: 1860 and today

A great set of comparison photos.

» The Chipophone

“The Chipophone is a homemade 8-bit synthesizer, especially suited for live chiptune playing. It has been built inside an old electronic organ.”
Wow. And the guy knows a pretty good repertoire of Mario Bros.
Sent in by Kevin K.

» I Am An Insane Rogue AI

An odd, claustrophobic, addictive little flash game.

Bonus Link!

» Wikipedia: List of common misconceptions

This is perhaps my favorite page on Wikipedia ever.


Now you can go and enjoy your weekend!

Happy Friday.

Happy Friday everybody. I hope it’s sunny where you are.

Let’s get to work!

» The Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator

My favorite so far: “The Drinking Point”, subtitle: “Really, anytime between 11 am and 4 am”

» Better Book Titles

Some really funny ones in here, and it’s designed with real flair.
Sent in by Simon B.

A heartbreaking photo essay by photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. Started in 2005.

Totally addictive. A very fun little game.
Sent in by Tara P.

An interesting read, and well written.

There you go. Now you’re ready for your weekend.

Have a great day.

Hello Friday February people.

Heeeere we go…

» 1933 German Safety Electrocution Handbook manual

“A 1993 German book on safety vividly demonstrates the warnings of electricity and general hazards in life.”
…and then some. Yikes.
Sent in by Simon B.

» Mariel Clayton – Doll Photographer with a subversive sense of humour.

“I can’t explain how my mind works, or why these ideas come to it.”
Very odd, somewhat disturbing photography of Barbie dolls.

» MTA.me

“Using the [New York] MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop.”
Well done.

» ClickPlay 3

An addictive and very simple game. Fun!

Bonus Link!

» Guide To Housecat Coat Colors And Patterns

[self explanatory]
It turns out that mine is a Chocolate caliby. I did not know this.

Happy Friday!
