Welcome to the last Friday in July.
Where did that go?!
» Pop Spots NYC
“The exact Spots where famous events of Pop culture took place (with a focus on New York City.)”
By “events of Pop culture”, he mostly means LP covers.
My pick, so far, West Side Story.
This must have taken a while to compile. Really well done.
» Google Street View: Gallery
You can check out several Antarctica research facilities, the Amazon, Historic Italy and a bunch of other things in some significant detail. I like.
» Imgur: 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman
A photo essay on the complete – and I do mean complete – tear down and reconstruction of a 1965 camper trailer.
After some digging, it turns out there are many other rebuilders out there. But it looks like this is the most intensive rebuild so far.
Not what I thought it would be (some weird 2d / 3d switcheroo) but still very fun.

» Brandalism: Gallery
Currently showing this art activist group’s modifications to the new Olympic billboards throughout the UK. These are fantastic.
Happy Friday, Friday Links people!
Here it is. At last. That day at the end of the work week: Friday
And here are some cool websites.
» Shell: Artic Ready: Gallery
Shell Oil makes the fatal mistake of letting the general public create their own ads using pre-selected images of endangered wildlife, iceburgs, etc.
Check out the highlights.
» Angelica Dass: Humanae
Artist Angelica Dass takes photos that match the subject’s skin colour to their precise Pantone value. Kind of neat.
More info (in Spanish) on her website.
» If The Wizard of Oz Took Place in China
Sent in by a few subscribers. Fantastic.
» Action Turnip
A frantic, frantic little flash game. Fun / frustrating.

» Buzzfeed: 22 Reasons Why Design Was More Awesome In The ’80s
Enjoy the rest of your Friday, and have a fantastic weekend.
The thirteenth! [Orchestra!]
And this is the last one for 2012. Hmph.
This week features mostly photographic works. Just turned out that way. Here we go!
» Camilee Seaman – The Big Cloud: The Lovely Monster
“We started out near Sidney, Nebraska following an LP (Low Precipitation) super cell storm cloud. A while later we were in the wheat fields near Gurley. The storm by this time had tops as high as 60,000 feet.”
These photos are seriously breathtaking. She has many other works as well, all worth a look.
Caution: extremely frustrating interface but worth it.
» fontBomb – Stylishly destroy the web

» Zhao Huasen: Invisible Bycicles
I like. 🙂
» Ragdoll Achievement
I don’t know if any of you remember “Stair Dismount“, but this is a neat offshoot of that game. And infinitely addictive.
» Birds With Arms
Kind of… creepy / odd, but hilarious.

Have a fantastic weekend everybody.
The heat. My god the heat.
But at least it’s Friday, right?
Let’s begin shall me?
» Fabio Ongarato Design: Baker D. Chirico
This is the design this agency came up with for what appears to be a smashing cafe / bistro / bakery in St. Kilda, Melbourne, Australia. Fantastic!
» Teacher Gregory Euclide makes 25 minute whiteboard artworks lunch break
“These are the astonishing masterpieces created by a high school teacher during his 25-minute lunch break – and then simply wiped away. Gregory Euclide began making his ephemeral artworks to show pupils at his school in the Minnesota River Valley what could be achieved in just a short space of time.”
These are, sincerely, breathtaking works.
Fun fact: Euclide also did the artwork for the latest Bon Iver album.
» Peter Krige: O.update
“In 2025, consumer electronics will no longer be the same as we know them today. They will be purchased through the O.System. Using printable electronics and rapid manufacturing processes a more local consumer electronics industry is born.”
In essence: in the near future we’ll be able to print our own electronics, or create new electronic devices from printable modules and elements.
He makes it look pretty easy.
» Conundrum Contraption
Another seemingly simple platformer flash game, but with a heart. Aw? P.S.: Time Travel
» Imgur: Kit Kat Chunky, XXXXL
Submitted without comment. Crazy.
Enjoy the rest of your Friday. Hopefully in a nicely air conditioned space. Possible with some excellent gelato…
