Well hello Friday friends.

I’m pretty sure we’re all ready for some Friday links now. Here goes…

» Byzantium Tests

“Our researchers charted the fears and desires common to many cultures and created 20 simple questions to help reveal your subconscious mind.”
Weird. Fascinating.
Sent along by Michael P.

» ELIOOO. Grow Your Food

This is an indiegogo campaign to raise money to print a book about how you can grow your own food at home using re-purposed Ikea furniture parts.
I like it!

» Alan Wolfson: KATZ’S DELI / CLOSING TIME

Alan Wolfson is a creator of miniature, extremely detailed art.
“The collector who commissioned the piece no longer lives in the city and wanted something that reminded him of the many times, when he was a boy, that he and his family had eaten at Katz’s.”
Fantastic.

» The First Hero

A really beautifully made flash game. Definitely addictive.

» Ranker: 100 Amazing Behind the Scenes Photos from Iconic Movies

Fantastic.

As always, have a great weekend.

Hello again Friday fans.

Happy Autumn! 🙂

Let’s begin…

» Obsolessons

“A Compendium of Unhelpful Self-Help.”
No kidding!
“Blows on the head are dangerous, children in their play, as well as older persons, should never give them.”
Alllrighty then.

» Subway Quiz

Specifically, the Toronto TTC subway.
I did terribly, and I live here. For shame.

No really I mean it: beautiful.
Also see his Flickr gallery of “underwater experiments.” Fantastic.

Careful: dizziness may ensue.
A fun, challenging shooter / flyer / what-have-you game.
Requires either Google Chrome or a new version of Firefox to play.

» Scouting NY: The Most Beautiful McDonald’s In America

“This 100+ year old Georgian mansion is indeed a McDonalds, and while well known to locals, it totally caught me by surprise. I practically expected a maitre d’ to greet me as I went inside.”
Wow. It is, kind of, unfortunate. But it’s a beautiful building restored from total abandonment to its present state. Interesting.

Have a wonderful fall weekend. And happy Friday!

Actually a pretty interesting comic / manifesto. Lots of interesting information. Hm!
(But I like restaurants!)

Also: here’s a small taste of my other list, Adam’s Friday Videos, which you may also want to subscribe to:

‘100’ (from 0 to 100 years in 150 seconds)

'100' (from 0 to 100 years in 150 seconds)

“In October 2011 I started documenting people in the city of Amsterdam, approaching them in the street and asking them to say their age in front of the camera. My aim was to ‘collect’ a group of 100 people, from age 0 to 100.”
Note: Dutch.
Making the rounds but pretty cool.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday, and have an amazing weekend.

Sep. 7th, 2012

Friday has arrived again, and for most people I know it was a short week. (High five!)

Here are this week’s Friday Links!

» GRiZ: Mad Liberation

A 12-track audio creation by a home-based independent music producer.
“Mad Liberation is a collection of songs that I have been working on for the past year that ranged from mostly original compositions to varied sample work (retro vinyl recordings and new all original recordings); digital synthesis that took me weeks to master; to live instrumentation tediously and soulfully recorded by myself and some of my very good friends.”
Stuff like this makes me heart the internets.

» The Great Wall of China – Diverse Perspectives

Some breathtaking photography of this iconic, ancient structure.
Beautiful.

» Vulture: The Simpsons Writers Pick Their Ten Favorite Obscure Characters

Some good ones in here.
Sent in by Lauren M.

» Atari Arcade

A lot of the original Atari arcade classics, all rendered in HTML 5.
Impressive. Also: some of these are still extremely difficult.
Suggested by Josh M.

Bonus Link!

» Google Earth Fractals

“The following is a “photographic” gallery of fractals patterns found while exploring the planet with Google Earth”.
Pretty amazing.

Have another great weekend everybody!
