Welcome – already!! – to the last Friday in January 2013.
That seemed extremely fast. Yikes.
But never mind that! Here are some links!!
» Eric Standley: Either / Or Decreed
Featuring extremely intricate stained-glass like window formations made from laser-cut paper and card stock.
Gorgeous, and quite detailed.
» Scotch Tape Series | Naman Photography
You might lol.
Suggested by many subscribers and worth every second. Yikes!
» The 17 Best Failed TV Shows Of The 80s (As Judged By Their Openings)
It’s an odd little article, but I thought it was funny.
» Dave Fearless is Stunt Driver
Despite the ape-like title, a pretty fun game.
» Women Shotgunning Beers
Another very specific tumblr.
Thanks Mike T.
Have a Happy Friday everybody!
Friday has arrived. Huzzah!
Let’s dive in…
» Form Follows Function
Some amazing – amazing!! – html 5 canvas experiments. Probably best viewed on the Chrome web browser.
Suggested by Joanna O.
» Cristian Girotto: L’enfant Exterieur
“Without bothering Jung and its “Puer aeternus” or Pascoli with its “Little Boy”, we can certainly agree that, somewhere inside each of us, there’s a young core, instinctive, creative but also innocent and naïve. What would happen if this intimate essence would be completely revealed?”
Really great work. A tad creepy but I like it.
» Every national anthem, all at once
This would probably save time at the Olympics wouldn’t it.
It’s kind of interesting. So many of them are straight marches. They tend to kind of line up in interesting ways.
Everything begins to get very exciting!! at the 3:10 mark or so.
Some of the comments are hilarious. I like.
» Roll With Maki San
A bizarre but highly entertaining video mashup… thing. It’s to help promote the Singapore based restaurant Maki San.

» Stochastic Planet
“Every day a PHP script picks a random spot on the land mass of Earth. The nearest photo to that spot is posted here.”
That’s kind of fascinating. I like it.
I hope your Friday is awesome, and your weekend feels longer than it normally would.
Hello again Mr. Friday.
Here we go…
» booooooom.com: 64 photo by 64 photographers
“These photos weren’t all produced this year, I just encountered them at some point in the last 12 months. Enjoy.”
Some really beautiful work here.
» Skye Kelly: Creep
See also The artist’s website.
Very cool, odd and beautiful.
» 22 Words: Saul Bass’s graphic design for The Shining with Stanley Kubrick’s feedback
Fantastic. And so specific.
» Winnie The Pooh Home Run Derby
It’s in Japanese, and exceedingly challenging.
But still fun!

» Edith With Googly Eyes
A tumblr focused on Downton Abbey’s Lady Edith Crawley character, only now with googly eyes.
Have another amazing Friday. See you next week.
It’s a whole new year!!
And time for a whole new set of Friday Links.
Are you ready? Ohhhh you were born ready!
» The Goddamned Apocalypse
Since we all “survived” another alleged apocalypse a week or so ago, here’s a handy website to tell you exactly how many of these you’ve made it through in your lifetime. For example, I’ve apparently survived 71 so far.
Some language NSFW.
» Overthinking: The Law and Order Database: All 20 Seasons
This article analyzes the outcome of every episode of Law and Order. (Guilty, not guilty, no contest, etc.)
There’s a reason the website has that name. 🙂
» Hiroshi Iwasaki: Personal 1
Beautiful photography of koi fish.
» Liquid Measure 3
“Route water to the pots to fill them all.”
It’s kind of like an abstraction of the old-school “pipes” game. I like.
» Airships.com: The Hindenburg’s Interior: Passenger Decks
I find this fascinating. The thing was huge! I had no idea.
Suggested by Kate S.
Happy Friday, and happy 2013!
See you next week.
