[self exlpanatory… or is it?]
Very fun. Sent in by Miko C. and Simon B.

» TimeOut London: 100 best comedy movies

[self explanatory]
I’m pretty much in agreement with these choices. Interesting.

From Purdue University, this is a simulator that will describe what a variety of asteroid or other impacts will do when they hit the Earth.

Another side-scroller flash game but it has quite odd bonuses.

Happy Friday!

You know what time it is…

» Show Me x Non-Stop

Enter a search term, and this site will play you non-stop videos from YouTube that meet the search criteria.
Kind of better in some ways than YouTube Playlists. Nice find.

» Things Apple is Worth More Than

“Apple’s Market Cap is Now $340 Billion. What’s Littler?”
Fascinating.
The entire economy of Singapore. All the illegal drugs in the world. Etc. Crazy.

» Reasoning With Vampires

A blogger dissects several of the more confusing passages from the Twilight series.

» Mental Pong

An odd, odd little re-do of Pong. Distracting!
Nerd extra: this is not a flash game! It’s completely generated in the browser. You should be able to play it on your iPad. Neat!

» Archie Out Of Context

Funny! (Mostly)

And there you have it!

Enjoy your weekend, Friday people.

I hate to break to everybody but this is the last Friday of Summer. 🙁

But it doesn’t mean there isn’t more cool stuff to share with you…

» History Pin

“Historypin is a way for millions of people to come together, from across different generations, cultures and places, to share small glimpses of the past and to build up the huge story of human history.”
A great, great Google maps hack.

» SNOW GLOBAL

“A series of snow globes created in response to the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, 2010”
Really nicely done, and a subtle statement piece as well.

» The Likeable Constitution

The US constitution, broken up into individually likeable segments.
Odd but creative.

» Tobe’s Hookshot Escape

It looks simple but it can quickly become unnerving.

» 10 Extraordinary Structures Inspired by Extreme Conditions

These look like what the future was predicted to look like circa 1974. Some pretty amazing designs.

Happy Summer Friday everybody.

Welcome back, Friday. We missed you.

Here we go…

» Simply Breathtaking: Roddy McDowall’s Home Movies

“An UNBELIEVABLE collection of Roddy McDowall’s never-before-seen silent home movies from the summer of 1965 were uploaded onto YouTube yesterday” (August 31st, 2011)
I was going to add this to my Friday Videos for today but I thought it was broad enough to earn an entry here.

» Post’it War

Fantastic.
Check out the archives. There are some really subversively talented people out there.

» French Prints Show the Year 2000 (1910)

From prints discovered in the National Library in France. This artwork from 1910 depicts what the year 2000 would look like.
Even they predicted flying cars.

» Intruded

“A mysterious character is caught in a hostile environment where security cameras watch her every step. Use arrowkeys to move. It’s dangerous, don’t die too much.”
This is one of the most unique flash games I think I’ve ever seen.

» Gif.tv

About what you would expect.
I showed this to a couple of people and it ate up a few hours of their lives. Crazy.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday, and have a great weekend everybody.

Well here we are. Friday!

And suddenly: September! This year is racing right along.

Here we go…

» New Wave Time Warp

“thirty years ago today, people wore shiny things”
This tumblr blog posts a video of a song on the 30th anniversary of its release. Right now they’re digging through 1981. It’s pretty fantastic.

» National Geographic: 18th-Century Ship Found Under 9/11 Site

How about that?
Sent in by Rachael L.

» Peter Callesen: Framed A4 Papercut

I’ve featured two other paper artists over the years, but Mr. Callesen has really set the bar quite high. Some incredibly intricate, beautiful work here.

» Cyclomaniacs 2

A fun little motorbike racing game.

» Ursus Wehrli: The Art of Clean Up

From his soon-to-be published book, which you can buy here. (Note: German)

Enjoy your (potentially long) weekend everybody.
